Halloween may have only just passed but it is time to prep for Christmas!

I always think little gift hampers make great gifts, especially for those passionate about food and drink! This Prosecco Savoury Basket from Bradfords is perfect for Christmas.

Foodies that are partial to a good quality cup of coffee are in luck with this three-month subscription to Beans Coffee Club from Buyagift. Select your taste, flavour profiles and coffee brewing method, and before you know it, you’ll be enjoying a bespoke coffee at home.

If cider is your recipients choice of tipple, then a Cranes Cider Gift Set is a good choice! It comes with a branded glass and a selection of three delicious fruit ciders. Cranberry & Lime, Raspberry & Pomegranate and Blueberry & Apple. What’s even better is that Cranes ciders contain 30% fewer calories than the other brand leaders!
If you want to treat someone to a tipple that will wow them, then Mermaid Salt Vodka is high on the list. From the Isle of Wight Distillery, this vodka is infused with island sea salt giving it a smooth and unique taste. It’s delicious over ice both on its own or served with a mixer of choice, but this vodka also makes a great addition to those holiday cocktails! Besides the great taste, another thing I must rave about when it comes to Mermaid Salt Vodka is that it is environmentally friendly. The bottle is plastic-free with a plant-based biodegradable seal and all-natural cork. Available from John Lewis and Master of Malt RRP £40.00/70cl.
Disco Cocktails are 100ml or 500ml pouches that fit through your letterbox delivering a tasty tipple to your recipient.
