Need some ideas for inspiration? Here are some suggestions that will help you spread some Christmas cheer in a fabulously foodie way…
Sweet like chocolate
For anyone with a sweet tooth, you can’t go wrong with chocolate. It’s one of those feel good, taste good treats – a classic crowd-pleaser. The Cocoba range will be sure to satisfy – the raspberry and champagne truffles are delightfully indulgent, while the hot chocolate bombes are perfect for something a little bit different (but just as delish). For those who love the taste of sea salt with their chocolate, the salted caramel truffles are a great option. Or, you could opt for our sweet treat selection – a heavenly hamper of goodies that will ensure your loved one has a very chocolatey Christmas indeed!
A meat feast
So, meat mightn’t be at the top of your list when it comes to Christmas presents, but if you know someone who loves a cold cut, then why not gift them with some charcuterie? A platter of prepared meat products could be just the job – the charcuterie sharing platter has a great mix of meats: Smoked Mutton, Air-Dried Pork Loin, Dorset Coppa, Dorset Air-Dried Beef, Dorsett Rosette Salami and Rampisham Tingler Salami. Fresh, fancy produce that is sustainably sourced can only be a good thing.
Crackers about cheese
For a lot of people, Christmas is about the spread – and this can include a classic cheeseboard. A fine selection of cheeses and a variety of biscuits and chutneys to accompany them makes for a cracking combination – and a wonderful present, too. From light and creamy cheeses to stronger, headier ones, a good mix will go down a treat when paired with a range of crackers and crispbreads. To keep things simple, there are the classic biscuits for cheese, or you could opt for some moreish cheese straws for an alternative savoury snack full of flavour. For dipping you could also add some caramelised onion chutney to the equation, or for some contrasting sweetness, there’s the Indian mango chutney (these also make super stocking fillers).
When it comes to Christmas, there’s no such thing as too much. That’s why hampers are such a great gift. A bundle of brilliance, you can pick and mix goodies to suit your recipient, whether they have a sweet tooth and love cakes and chocolates or prefer to indulge in delicious, artisanal cheese, you can select multiple items and work up a tray of treats that will be sure to delight. Alternatively, you could help contribute to your friend or family’s Christmas celebration by sorting out the dinner – with the Christmas beef dinner for six, there are all of the ingredients included that are needed to get the festive feast underway.
