One of our favourite things about Christmas is planning what delicious treats we will eat and what special drinks we will get in.

Here are our top picks for the season to be merry!

Decanting Club

If you’ve got a wine tasting buff in the house then we suggest you look at getting a monthly subscription to the Decanting Club. Subscriptions start from £10 a month and for this you get to try 2 new wines. The wines fit through your letterbox in a pouch that is then to be decanted into your glass. Genius!

Guylian Chocolates

If you have never heard of Guylian Chocolates then where have you been! These have been a regular in my house for many years and I remember having these most Christmas’ at my grandmas house. They are silky smooth pralines that should be accompanied with my glass of evening Bailey’s on Christmas day. No proper Christmas is without them.

The Wonderbag

Oh my word – what can I say about this bag. It is such an amazing idea and every party house needs one. If you’re hosting a Christmas get together this year then this is such a sensible and cool purchase. The Wonderbag can keep food warm for up to 12 hours and your booze cold too! If you’ve got a large family banquet or you are thinking of a Winter picnic this year then this is a winner. It’s also the perfect gift for any foodie/camper or beach lover. It’s blooming amazing what this bag can do.

Thermapen

A Classic SuperFast Thermapen thermometer is fast, accurate, colourful and used by chefs and BBQ enthusiasts worldwide.

A Thermapen would make a great gift for the person who cooks the turkey on Christmas Day, especially as a staggering 75% of Brits are not aware that the correct temperature of a cooked turkey is 74°C! Ask Jen, almost everything I cook now gets checked with my Thermapen!

Black and Blum Bento Box, 19.95

I love this bento box! We aren’t a traditional ‘sandwich for our lunch’ family and so something like this is ideal to cater to our taste. One of the children is a grazer and so having a sectioned box like this is ideal to make sure they have all they need for the day, whilst also catering to them needing smaller portions and giving them choice.

Black and Blum Thermo Pot, £39.95

This thermo pot is the perfect gift for a new parent or commuter on the go! The flask will keep your food warm for up to 6 hours. We love the design – metal and cork work well together to keep the food warm and it comes with a soup spoon. We have gifted this to a friend that is just about to have their baby so that their partner can make a deicious warm lunch and leave it for them without the need to heat it up. We would also recommend their lunch pot meal prep pack for the same reason!
