After the success of last year’s foodie gift guide, find this year’s update for all your food lovers, friends and family here!
Is there anything worse than making some beaut tacos then when you’re ready to ‘gram them you realise that your life is missing a taco holder which holds them together nicely and helps you get that perfect shot everytime? Worry no more.
Scandi inspired living store Life Story is probably the most dangerous shop for me in Edinburgh. These beauties come in three different options – white, grey or black end dipped. From these gorgeous salad spoons (which I’ve been hunting for since we visited Copenhagen in June) to…
Yes, you do need some beautiful scissors. They will always come in handy. And you can use them for photo props. You definitely need them.
Okay, so I might be obsessed with Life Story. So sue me. This gorgeous French-press style coffee pot is quite pricey but totally worth it.
No one likes doing the washing up and everyone hates drying the dishes even more. Make it more tolerable with this cute tea towel which will brighten up even the more boring of chores. [Edit: this has sold out since I published this list, but you can see her other cute prints by following her shop.]
The cutest lil’ condiment pots are sure to be the centre piece of any table.
I recently went to Cadiz for dinner and came away yearning for my very own lobster print. These hand painted prints start at just £15.00.
For food lovers who also have a soft spot for our furry friends.
I love lobster. But when I go out and order it I feel like a heathen / Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman as I’m not very good at working the tools to get the most out of my lobster. I’m going to practice at home with these!
Great Grog provided the booze at the recent Apartment Food & Drink Quiz that I went to. This was the fizz for the first round and as they say in their own words “Tastes just like Prosecco, excellent fruit with a crisp finish. Made from Glera (Prosecco grape) & Chardonnay & a splash of Gargenega. Proper-Fizzy too!” I’m not a prosecco lover but I loved this. Bargain too.
One thing I want to tackle next year is bao buns… and then I might try dim sum if I’m feeling brave! This steamer will be perfect for practicing my Asian cooking. And it’s not too big to be stored away when you’re not using it.
The new Fox & Ivy brand at Tesco has some really lovely homewares. These Moscow mules mugs are perfect for winter warming cocktails.
Whilst on the topic of winter, let’s avo-cuddle this hot water bottle.
The ultimate foodie subscription. The Gourmand is a bi-annual magazine and a gift that keeps on giving as for £22.00 you will get the current edition and the next issue which is released in May 2018.
Anta is a Scottish brand of homewares and whilst most of things might be a little too expensive for most of us who will probably be reading this, their cookbook not only looks delicious but is currently reduced from £28.00. Recipes include Scallops Caorunn,
Pheasant Pearl Barley Risotto and Chocolate Fudge Pudding. They currently have a deal on if you buy a baking dish and the cookbook you get an additional £10 off your order.
This traditional cast iron meat mincer easily attaches to your home surfaces and includes a sausage making attachment. The ultimate tool for any budding Nigella (or Nigel). My boyfriend has already put in his order for some Cumberlands.
I’ve saved the best, and most decadent, til last. Whilst it’s the most expensive number on this list this year, it may well be one of the best value. Martin Wishart’s Michelin starred kitchen opens its doors a few times a year to offer you a seasonal cookery demonstration, followed by a five course gourmet meal plus two glasses of wine and coffee and petit fours. As if that wasn’t enough, you then get a tour of Martin’s kitchen to finish off your day. A really special day for your foodies to remember forever.
