Food Gifts to Put a Smile on Anyone’s Face

Have you done your Christmas shopping yet? Or are you struggling for ideas to please the friend who has everything, or the colleague you don’t know very well? Why not give them a food gift this year? With so much choice available on ideli.online, you’re bound to find something to put a smile on the face of even the most awkward recipient. But why do food products make such good gifts? Here are a few reasons.

We all eat!

Let’s face it, giving food as a gift is a no-brainer really – because we all eat! Food is the one thing that every single one of us needs, and no one is going to turn their nose up at a well-chosen gift of quality food! You’re guaranteed to please when your gift is an everyday essential like jam or cheese. Or give someone a special treat with our delicious hand-raised pies and pasties.

You can give something a little bit unusual

We love looking out for quirky products to showcase on our website, and these more unusual things make wonderful gifts. Our range of Asian specialities includes everything you need to create a tantalising Indian feast, including rice kits, chutneys, breads and authentic cook-in sauces. And with flavours ranging from mild creamy butter chicken to extra hot naga chilli sauce, there’s something to suit every palate.

The chef in your life will appreciate one of our oil selection boxes, suitable for cooking and drizzling on all manner of dishes. Or if baking is more their thing, how about a bag of flour from the Nelstrops range – you won’t be able to resist that freshly baked loaf!

Everyone loves a treat!

How about giving friends or colleagues something special for the Christmas table, like our Christmas pudding loaf or luxury mince pies? If they’re more the savoury type, a selection of olives and antipasti is a tangy temptation. Or for something very different, our wild boar, venison and pheasant pâtés bring a touch of luxury to any occasion, and are so pretty you won’t want to wrap them!

Something for every budget

Finally, choosing food gifts means you can be really flexible with your spending. Whether you’re looking for an individual Christmas pudding or a 4lb pie, there’s something on ideli.online to suit every budget. Food gives you the opportunity to be creative – how about choosing a selection of our cakes and biscuits and making up a hamper with a favourite blend of tea? Or for an even easier idea, don’t forget our own hamper option – simply choose any 10 products from the website and we’ll do the rest. It’s the easy way to create the perfect gift for anyone.
