christmas gift guide 2019 | edible gifts edition

A box of chocolates? Boring! Want to give a gift that someone can enjoy – and quite literally savour? Here is my round up of edible gifts with a difference.

for… Fish lovers

Tobermory Fish Company have been producing fine Scottish fish products for three generations and it makes the perfect gift for the fish lovers in your life. I can attest to it all being delicious – especially their unique cajun hot smoked salmon and the smoked trout. From £5.99 – use CHRISTMAS10 for 10% off! The Love Food gift set contains all their popular products and is just £29.99.

for… The sweet tooth

Miod are the new artisan honey suppliers on Easter Road and have the loveliest honey gifts, in an array of flavours, starting from just a few pounds. I love this “his & hers” set which has a silky creamed rapeseed honey with dried strawberries and a buckwheat honey, dark and strong with a hint of cocoa, gift set £18.50.

for… That one that needs a bevvy to get through Christmas day

North Uist Distillery have created a special Christmas blend priced at £29.00 – they kindly gifted me some and it was lovely. I’ve included it here because I’m not normally a fan of gin and this might just be my turning point…when baby comes!

The Pitt’s latest trader not only pops up there of a weekend, you can find her wares in the Leith Police box regularly and now you can order fresh pasta by the kilo. Follow her on Instagram as there is no official website yet and contact her directly to order. From £12 per kg.

for… The person who has everything 

We all have that one friend who has everything; this is the perfect gift for them. Or maybe you just have a wide-o friend who deserves to be sent a potato in the post. From £8.99.

for… The meat heed

This is great for meat lovers – and also for couples who have kids and can’t afford to get a babysitter. This would make for a special night in for any meat heed. This lovely gift set also includes a carving block and oven glove. Chateaubriand gift set £45.00. 


for… The fussy foodie

First Table offers 50% off some of the best restaurants in a selection of cities. It’s ideal for a fussy foodie (as well as a bargain lover) and you can get them a voucher and let them do the rest!
