Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat … and your thoughts may have turned to what to buy your business clients or staff. If you’re tired of ordering the usual chocolates and wine, here are our suggestions of some unusual gifts to delight.
A Bottle of …
Why not ditch the wine this year and offer your clients a bottle of something a little more interesting? Our selection of flavoured extra virgin rapeseed oils are great for frying but they’re just as delicious drizzled over vegetables and meat or even as a dip for crusty bread. Available in chilli or garlic varieties, we also have two selection packs that would be perfect presents for anyone wanting to add a dash of flavour to meal times. The Salad Selection Pack includes lemon oil, a great accompaniment to chicken, seafood or couscous; basil, to add a Mediterranean twist to salads or liven up a pizza; and a delicious smoked oil that works well on meat and fish and is extra tasty with a fresh ciabatta. And while Christmas doesn’t normally summon up images of barbecues (unless you live in the southern hemisphere!), the Barbecue Selection Pack (garlic, chilli and classic oils) will leave your guests dreaming of long summer evenings in the garden.
Cheese and Biscuits
Cheese is always a popular choice of gift and we have a wide selection of cheeses from around Europe. From vintage Cheddar to tangy goat’s cheese, and creamy Brie to nutty Cambozola, there’s bound to be something to please. We’d especially recommend our premium range from the Snowdonia Cheese Company. These mature Cheddars come in flavours as varied as whisky, pickle, and cranberry, and look fantastic in a hamper. And don’t forget to throw in a box of our sourdough crackers, the perfect accompaniment to any cheese.
Pickles and Conserves
Conserves are always popular at Christmas and no one would be disappointed to receive a jar or two of strawberry jam, lemon curd or three fruit marmalade in their Christmas stocking. Or why not combine sweet with savoury for a delightful teatime treat – our pickles, chutneys and preserves will be a most welcome addition to the Boxing Day table.
Pies, Pies and More Pies
If you’re looking for something really unusual, you can’t go wrong with one of our hand-raised pies! From individual treats to pies big enough to feed a family, this is a quirky gift that will put a smile on someone’s face. The only decision now is which filling to choose!
A Christmas Hamper
Finally, for something a bit special, why not create bespoke Christmas hampers your clients will love? Will you choose a fine range of cheeses, biscuits and relishes? Perhaps someone would love a hamper of Indian sauces, bread and accompaniments? Or maybe you’d prefer a seasonal selection of pickles, preserves and pies? Just choose any ten of our products and we’ll do the rest. Or for hassle-free shopping, pick one of our party packs – the selections include cold meats, pies, cheeses, biscuits and much more, and offer a huge saving on buying the products individually.
