Christmas is a time to relax and indulge and, for us, that means treating ourselves to lots of new and delicious food.
Whether you’re looking for special savouries to enjoy with friends, or goodies to satisfy a loved one’s sweet tooth, we have a selection starting from just £5 here at English Designer Gifts.
Here’s our pick of edible items for every budget:
Farrah’s of Harrogate is famous for its original toffee, and the smooth, creamy texture of these handmade chunks won’t disappoint. This delicious gift, which comes in one of Farrah’s iconic blue and silver tins, is the perfect way to treat friends and family to a taste of Yorkshire.
If you know a peanut fan who’s also partial to crunchy caramel, butter, vanilla and a salty kick, treat them to Cartwright & Butler’s peanut brittle. BBC Good Food says it makes a great stocking filler thanks to the moreish balance of salt and sweet, and we think it makes a great alternative to chocolates that won’t break the bank.
Cold winter nights go hand in hand with a steaming mug of hot chocolate, and this trio of hot chocolate beads will see you through to the New Year. Inside three clip top jars you’ll find a classic milk chocolate flavour, a dark chocolate and orange oil blend, and a creamy hot chocolate with salted caramel twist. The hardest part is choosing which one to try first.
If you know a sensible shopper who rarely splashes out on something special, why not wow them with a hamper? The Northallerton traditional wicker basket comes packed with luxury foods that make Christmas extra special. Tuck into the breakfast tea and marmalade to get Christmas Day off to a classic start, and save the rest, including tomato and basil flatbreads, Roqueford cheese melts, Yorkshire chutney and caramel and syrup waffles, as nibbles to take you through from evening to night.
The Skipton Hamper feels like a real treat even before you open it up, starting with its gorgeous solid cream case with strap and metal buckles. Inside are 12 beautiful teatime luxuries to satisfy all those festive cravings, from savoury to sweet. We love the sound of the picalilli, stem ginger biscuits, cheddar cheese crumbles and cherry and almond loaf cake, washed down with the breakfast tea or Cafe York coffee.
If this doesn’t get your taste buds tingling, take a look at our extensive food range here.
Don’t forget that we offer free UK delivery on all orders over £50, and tracked delivery with gift wrap available for those extra special gifts.
