Let’s forget for a moment all about those standard heart shaped boxes of chocolates which are inevitably gone within minutes and let’s consider buying something a little more exiting, something different, something which will last longer than a day and provide our loved ones with long lasting pleasures and a reminder of the love given with the present.
Coffee Subscription Box from £3.50/month
I adore the idea of having new coffee delivered to my door each month. I think every coffee lover would enjoy a long lasting gift like this. There seems to be a lot of companies offering a service like this, they offer different ranges, frequency and of course price. As I am not able to recommend one company over any others, I am providing you with a link to the most recommended UK coffee subscriptions so it’s easier for you to pick if you decided to order some.
Cheese Making Kit from £18.99
Most foodies love cheese but instead of buying a funky looking block of cheese why not buy them a cheese making kit? I bet most of us would enjoy making our own cheese. The kits from Burnley Home Brew are designed to be used in any kitchen and with no previous cheese making experience. In my opinion they are a wonderful gift idea for any cheese loving foodie and who knows, it could be the start of an empire.
50 Greatest Chefs from £19.50
Make your chef feel special as you think they are by creating a personalised book just for them.
50 Greatest Chefs sees your loved one featured alongside 49 famous cooks. They are included on the cover of this coffee table book and are the stars of their own biography page. You can choose from three cover styles in nine colours to produce a bespoke book that is printed on demand
Don’t you just love the idea of this book? First of all it will provide your Valentine’s with a heap of new knowledge about many famous chefs out there but most of all they will be featured amongst them! Small money, fab idea and potentially a lot of pleasure and a huge ego stroke for the recipient.
Cookery Courses from £30
Cookery courses are always inspiring and allow you to explore the passion further. Most people think that they are super expensive when in reality a group workshop can start from as little as £30. Single courses, group ones or even ones for couples, BBQ, sushi, candy, chocolates… whatever you fancy, I am sure you will find a course to suit your needs and requirements.
Heartfelt and practical in equal measure, this chopping board has plenty of room for chopping and features loving Chilli and Bubble characters having a cuddle in the corner of the board plus you are free to add any personal message you wish (well sort of , as long as you can squeeze it in within 50 characters).
I actually own one of these boards and it is beautiful! And once the hype of Valentine’s Day is gone, your loved one is left with a wonderful board to enjoy daily. I really like gifts which are different, can be made personal yet are still practical.
These are my picks and I hope you enjoyed my list.
Have you come across something unusual which will make a wonderful gift for a foodie?
