As well as inspiring them to plan their next short break this poster makes a great piece of home decor, and can be gifted in a frame (with glass removed) for added effect.
The perfect gift for the person who lovingly cooks for others, this stylish journal allows amateur chefs to create their very own cookbook featuring their favourite family recipes. The sleek notebook is divided into practical sections, allowing recipes to be easily organised into meal types, and cooking times, ‘difficulty level’ and top tips can be logged on every page for future generations. There’s even a handy file section in the back for magazine clippings and photos.
If you know someone who likes to be adventurous in the kitchen, there’s no doubt that you’ll be able to find something for them at Life of Spice. This innovative company creates collections of gourmet spices, rubs and seasonings that revolutionise day-to-day cooking. With everything from BBQ rubs and Italian herb blends, to Christmas drink mixes and flavoured salts, there’s something for everyone.
Believe it or not, this 1950s dinner party fad is on is firmly back in fashion, with fondues popping up everywhere from weddings to wine tastings. Anyone who loves to entertain will find a use for this gorgeous copper set and it’s also great for your younger relatives (with supervision of course). Melt rich chocolate for a delicious after dinner treat, heat up oil to create a table-top frying station or indulge in a swiss cheese centerpiece. The only questions is: do you fondue?
Le Creuset cookware is famous for a reason. As well as being the ultimate status symbol for AGA-owning yummy mummys, the traditional cast iron and enamel dishes are considered by many to be the best quality items on the market. There are a lot of options out there, but you can’t go wrong with the Gourmet Casserole Dish. It’s totally flexible and can be used for everything from making one-pot meals and roasts, to creating pasta meals, soups and even baking bread. Plus, the lucky recipient won’t have to find cupboard space for it – it comes in a range of colours and is pretty enough to double as kitchen decor.
