Homemade Food Gifts For DIY Christmas Gifts - olivemagazine

Christmas this year might look a little different for many of us who are still getting used to the ever-changing Covid restrictions. If you can’t see friends or family in person, then you might be thinking about some nice gift ideas of what you can send them to show that you are thinking of them over the festive season. We all love a little indulgence over the Christmas period, so what better gift to give than some lovely foodie gifts! 

With so many different food-inspired gifts available to buy online, there is plenty of choice as to what you can buy, but if you’re struggling for inspiration, then here are some of the best food gift ideas that you can send this Christmas. 

Movie Night Set

If you know that the recipients love nothing more than unwinding in front of a good movie with snacks, then why not put together a movie night set for them to enjoy! If you’re ok with creating your own gift hamper to send, then pack it out with either ready made popcorn or kernels so that they can make their own, with some delicious flavours and seasonings. 

If you really want them to recreate the movie experience, you could buy cardboard popcorn boxes for them to put their popcorn in. Add their favourite sweets and chocolates, as well as any savoury snacks they might enjoy too. You could include a voucher for Amazon Prime for them to rent a few of the latest blockbuster movies. 

Cooking Inspiration

If your friends or family are big foodies and love spending time in the kitchen, why not send them a gift to provide cooking and kitchen inspiration for some New Year culinary experiments. If they’ve recently moved into a new house, you could gift them a nice new saucepan or frying pan or if they’re a student, an essential kitchen hamper could come in handy, packed with utensils, tea towels, plates and accessories. 

For budding chefs, spice kits, savoury sauces and marinades can help them create some tasty new dishes or if you want to give them a gift to remember, why not gift them a cooking experience at a local restaurant? 

Sweet Treats

Christmas is a time where many people wind down and prepare for the New Year. For many families, children are off school, parents are at home and there is a lot of free time to spend as a family. If you know a family that love sweet treats or just want to send something special for them to enjoy, there are plenty of ideas out there! From brownie gift boxes and hampers of fresh bakery products for all the family, to luxury panettones and luxury handmade dark chocolates for adults to enjoy with a glass of wine once the madness is over, no matter what their tastes and preferences are, you’re sure to find a gift they’ll love.
