Last Minute Food Gifts

photo1-81
We’ve all done it. Leaving Christmas gifts to the last minute is something we do best. It is estimated that today, on Christmas Eve Eve, £1.3 billion will be spent across the UK. That’s a hell of a lot. 
If you know someone who loves food (I mean who doesn’t love food), here’s a few last minute ideas to get you thinking – including 50% off a coffee machine(!) Think of it as food for thought.

#1 For The Boozers

What: Homemade Brandy Chocolate Truffles

How: I made these little gluten free beauties at the Miele baking class, and boy were they easy. Forget any kind of baking, just simply throw the ingredients together and leave to set here. Arrange neatly in a clear bag and tie with festive string. You can find the recipe here.

#2 For The Cooks



What: Good House Keeping Institute Cookery School Classes

How: Ideal for anyone who loves to cook, browse through cookery school options and find the class that’s right. Newly opened in London’s Soho, daily courses of up to eight people run in the morning and afternoon. Prices range between £90-180 depending on if you opt for a short 3 hour class or a long 5 hour class. Look out for a gluten free course coming soon. Check out my review in full here.


#3 For The Coffee Lovers


What: Dolche Gusto coffee machines

How: Recently launching a new range of espresso pods, these machines are ideal for anyone who loves coffee-shop quality on the go. Also be sure to scan the shops as these have been seen to be selling at half price (reduced from roughly £50 from £100)! Read my review here.

#4 For Those With a Sweet Tooth


What: Meringues by the Meringue Girls

How: If you fancy making your own home made meringues (gluten free), Meringue Girl style, they’re pretty easy to whip up as cute little sugary gifts. If however, you’d rather leave the baking to the girls themselves, you can buy gift boxes containing all different flavours and colours from Selfridges. 

Feeling brave? Here’s the recipe.

Have a great Christmas!

    ohhh I have to say for a coffee lover I would prefer a nespresso. The coffee is richer and for the capuccinos I use the aeroccino. Love your photos :)
