It's not too late for you to pick up the perfect Christmas present for the foodie in your life (including you!). All these gifts can be bought instore or ordered online in time for the big day.

Let's start with a plug - snap up my Noodle Secret Weapons Cookery Kit from Sous Chef - last orders for standard delivery at 3pm today!

Run to Brompton Food Market in South Kensington. Tell them your budget and throw yourself upon their mercy or opt for one of their set Hampers - I've got my eye on the Best of Brompton http://www.bromptonfoodmarket.com/

How adorable is this hedgehog mug from Paperchase? There's an equally covetable owl mug too - whimsy at its best from their Dreamscape range http://www.paperchase.co.uk/dreamscape-hedgehog-mug.html

I *hate* the name, but love everything I've tried so far from Manfood. This set from Harvey Nichols must be another winner - The Cocktail Jam Gift Box comprising Mojito, Bramble, Negroni and Bellini jams  http://www.harveynichols.com/1928881-cocktail-jam-gift-box/

Tassen face bowls from the Southbank Centre Shop. Jolie laide as the French would say. There are chirpy egg cups and a lugubrious teapot too, all reminiscent of John Tenniel's Alice illustrations for Lewis Carroll http://shop.southbankcentre.co.uk/happyohpleasebowls.html

Adventure Time Cookie Jar - it's Jake! Jake! From Forbidden Planet https://forbiddenplanet.com/118392-adventure-time-ceramic-cookie-jar-jake/

Toasted StayPuft Marshmallow Man - look at his cross little face. From The Cinema Store http://www.thecinemastore.co.uk/

Blade Runner whiskey glasses. Make like Deckard with these chunky beauties. Oh yes. From Firebox - order by midday Thursday 18th! http://www.firebox.com/product/4346/Blade-Runner-Whiskey-Glass

Last but not least, these toy food shopping sets are aimed at the little foodie in your life. I (not so) secretly want all of them for myself. From IKEA http://m.ikea.com/gb/en/catalog/functional/18681/18734/?chapterId=18737

So run / order online as fast as you can to make sure you have the perfect Christmas gifts!


  1. Excellent list. Had the Bladerunner glasses on my gift guide last year, they were one of the ones lots of people wanted, bit a bit pricy. I'm still coveting them.

  2. Hehe, we were in the Southbank shop at the weekend and joked about buying you the freaky face bowls...

    1. ... to go with your freaky onion pot.
