Foodies Christmas Gift Guide 2018 Part 1

This is my last Christmas Gift Guide and my favourite too!  I have split it into 2 parts each features 1 or more competitions.

The Foodies Christmas Gift Guide 2018

Here I will tell you about some wonderful products that would make fabulous Christmas gifts for the foodies in our lives.  There will be various options so you will be able to choose items for main gift, items to bulk up gifts and also stocking fillers.

In addition I have a great competition for you to enter and there are more on my competitions page and other Christmas Guide posts!!!!!

Gift Ideas from Prezzybox

Some websites seem to have a gift for everyone including Foodies.  Prezzybox is one of them.  There’s a lovely selection of gifts from fun to fabulous so you’re bound to find treats that all the family will love.  The good thing is that some items can include messages or the recipients name to give the gift a personal touch.

Vineyard Candles – Prosecco

When only the best will do this winner of the Gift Association’s Gift of the Year could quite likely be what you are looking for.  Although not edible this pretty cleverly thought out candle is presented in a re purposed wine bottle.  The rim has been melted so it can be smoothed over giving it a sophisticated look and finish.  It’s ideal for candle lovers and there are plenty of those.  The candle has a relaxing fragrance with notes of grapefruit and rose.

Personalised Toblerone Bar

Dad loves toblerone so one with his name would go down very well with him.  It’s of course chocolate and with mum being a chocoholic as it’s labelled with his name there is no mistaking to whom it belongs.  That probably won’t stop her having a triangle or two when he’s out playing golf though.  Other items that can be personalised include a Marmite jar, Prosecco and chocolate gift set, sweet trees, chocolate message, bottle of red wine or gin and much more.

Fabulous Favourites Fudge Collection

Dad also loves fudge but then so do I and so does my brother.  The selection box includes 18 pieces of handmade and decorated preservative free fudge.  There are 9 different flavours, 2 of each and they contain only natural ingredients.  It’s made in the UK and is gluten free and suitable for vegetarians.

Flavours include: Peanut Butter, Clotted Cream, Sticky Toffee Pudding, Hazelnut Heaven, Dark Chocolate & Sea Salt, White Chocolate Raspberry, Butterscotch, Double Trouble Chocolate, Sea Salted Caramel.

Chocolate Prosecco and Strawberries

The perfect gift for many ladies and I’m sure some men too.  One of my friends loves Prosecco and she was the first person that sprung to mind when I saw the Chocolate Prosecco and Strawberries on the website.  Who doesn’t love chocolate especially when it is so beautifully presented.  The mini chocolate half bottle of prosecco and six strawberries are made from 100% Belgian chocolate.  The bottle and strawberries are made from solid white chocolate with added natural carmine creating a pretty pink ombre effect.  The bottle neck is made from solid milk chocolate which has been dusted with edible glitter.

Handmade Gourmet Popcorn Gift Box

Have you tried Jo & Steph’s popcorn before?

It’s really good and they have a divinely delicious range of 100% natural, air-popped, handmade gourmet popcorn.  This selection pack contains 6 flavours; Caramel & Belgian Chocolate, Salted Caramel, Gin & Tonic, Toffee Apple & Cinnamon, Espresso Martini and Caramel and Peanut Butter.  Just the thought of them has my mouth excited.  Separated and give individually as stocking fillers or make someones day and give them the whole selection.  Alternatively hide it and save it for yourself and say you lost their present.

All flavours are gluten free apart from G&T.

This is perfect for bulking up a gift and is also great for movie nights!!!  It’s £12.99 so each pack works out to £2.17.



This company offers something pretty unique.  Us Brits are known for our love of tea.      We drink on average 165 million cups of tea daily in the UK and our love of the stuff doesn’t appear to be waning.  If anything it’s growing stronger.

Along side this we are also getting far more experimental with what we are drinking in relation to alcohol.  Growing in popularity are various more interesting forms of drink.  Teas with alcohol have become extremely trendy and there has been a rise in the number of alcoholic tea cocktails in places such as The Aqua Shard.

  Having seen a space in the market Noveltea have designed an innovative selection of products that have combined tea and various forms of alcohol.  Their efforts have not gone unnoticed.  The company was recognised as the most innovative drinks product in Europe and awarded for it at the Sial Innovation Awards this year.  There were 600 submissions for these prestigious awards.  Judges praised them for being “world wide unique”.

They currently have 3 products under their belt and I’m sure there will be more to come.

(Earl Grey Tea with Gin)

A fabulous pairing of Earl Grey tea blended with British gin to give a strong yet smooth original flavour.

Noveltea The Tale of Tangier (Great Taste Star Winner 2018)

Noveltea are so proud of their newest creation they wanted to share it with you guys.  One lucky winner will get to have a bottle of their own of the latest Noveltea The Tale of Oolong to enjoy with friends or on their own – once you try it you may not want to share!
