Gourmet Christmas Gift Guide 2016

I don’t mean to scare you but it’s less than two weeks until Christmas.  Trying to avoid my usual Christmas shopping habit of “one for them, oh and something nice for me” I am being ruthless with lists this year to try and track down the perfect presents for people.  For the food obsessed hopefully this gourmet themed Christmas list will be a help.  Here’s 13 wonderful gourmet Christmas ideas just for you.  Happy shopping, eating and drinking everyone! 


Clockwise from top: 

1.For whoever’s hosting you for Christmas lunch (give it to yourself if you’re hosting!): This beautiful royal blue Ponto Pitcher from Maxwell and Williams is great as a water jug or even better fill it with Aperol Spritz.  $39.99.

2. For your girlfriend who’s just as Gorman obsessed as you:  Gorman prints are so gorgeous and these La Banane earrings which are part of Gorman’s collaboration with Atelier Bingo are just too cute. $59

3. For your boyfriend so he knows exactly where the hot places to take you out for dinner are: This year’s Good Food Guide is a ripper (I may have helped with the reviewing) and when you buy the book you get the app included as well. Bonus. $19.25.

4. For your brother who’s hard to buy for.  A personalised favourite things jumper.  Get your brother’s three favourite things printed on a jumper. Although hard to go past the avocados, friends and gin combo! $99.

5. For your work Kris Kringle.  A T2 Little Gems pack which includes a selection of teas in a cute little box. Great for a tea break.  Budget friendly at $20  

6. For the person who has everything. Four Pillars Christmas Gin is a money can’t buy present as it’s sold out everywhere.  It tastes of Christmas pudding, juniper, cinnamon, star anise and Rutherglen muscat. If you manage to track it down at a bottle shop snap it up and send some to me! $95. 

7.  For your go getter Mum who loves her FitBit.  A 321 water bottle to keep her hydrated.  This clever bottle has a built in filter which makes drinking tap water fun.  $29. 

8. For your toddler who can’t get enough of her toy kitchen.  Make Me Iconic’s new doughnut puzzle is fun to pull apart and put together and like all Make Me Iconic’s products it looks a lot more sturdy than most of the plastic tat out there for kids. $24.


9.  For your brother in law who is an EXCELLENT cook.  My favourite cook book of this year is Neighbourhood by Hetty McKinnon.  Full review here (and some more cook books to choose from). $29 although Readings has it even cheaper if you are in Melbourne. 

10.  For your kids carer or teacher:  Celebrate by Kate creates these adorable gingerbread treats which come packaged so beautifully.  They’re made with the best quality ingredients including free range eggs.  Set of 5 for $20. 

11.  For your Uncle who likes a bit of DIY.  A salmon curing kit from Ross and Ross food. Better soon give it to him before Christmas so you can feast on beetroot cured salmon on Christmas day.  £21.

12.  For your baby who is only just old enough for toys.  Make Me Iconic does it again with another adorable wooden magnetic puzzle this time in the form of an ice-cream.  $24. 

13.  For your grandma who loves to bake. A personalised retro cake tin from Hard to Find. I’m pretty obsessed with personalised things and how good is this tin. Plus nobody could ever accidentally steal it when you take a cake into work or to a friends house. $66
