Food can make the perfect Christmas gift – it’s a comforting treat, and what shows someone you love them more than making them something yourself for Christmas?
We’ve rounded up some of our favourite foodie gifts and recipes featured on Foodies100 blogs in recent weeks, but please do add your own recipes using the Linky at the end of this post, we’d absolutely love to see them. And don’t forget you can always submit recipes to our recipe wall, which is updated daily with our favourite recipes from around the Foodies100.
Christmas Food Gifts from Bloggers
First up, we loved this home-made chocolate peppermint bark from The Crazy Kitchen, which uses a mould to achieve really professional finish. Just add a bag, some ribbon and hey presto – a perfect present!
Know someone with a sweet tooth? We think these pistachio macarons from Supergolden Bakes would make a super present, presented in a pretty box – and they’re a gorgeous colour to boot!
If you like the idea of giving your loved one something they can cook for themselves, how about lentil soup in a jar, as created by Hannah at A New Addition?
These festive and very fun Christmas Tree Brownies from My Darlings and Me would make a great gift to take to a children’s party, while these Macadamia chocolates from Guai Shu Shu look like a decidedly more grown-up treat.
Chutneys and pickles always go down a treat in our family at Christmas, and we loved this archive treat from Lavender and Lovage of quince and cranberry chutney – perfect to serve with cold meats on Boxing Day.
Biscuits are also a classic Christmas option, but for a rather more unusual take on this idea, we liked this recipe for chilli shortbread cookies from Chocolate Log Blog. Threaded on ribbon they even make a pretty, festive decoration. Although this delicious-looking chocolate and prune shortbread from Belleau Kitchen might be a safer bet for those without a fondness for hot food!
Labneh is one of my favourite treats when I’m in the Middle East and I would be delighted to receive a jar of labneh cheese in oil, as seen on The English Can Cook. Perfect served with some pitta bread, fresh herbs and houmous, Middle Eastern style…
This Sloe Gin from Bangers and Mash looks absolutely gorgeous but the bad news is you’ll need to make it for NEXT Christmas because it takes two months to make – but looks worth every moment of the wait.
If you’re in need of a gift to a tighter deadline, then do check out this recipe for quick chocolate fudge from Jam and Clotted Cream? This looks absolutely perfect for my daughter’s teachers as a Christmas gift at the end of term.
