With the festive season almost upon us it’s about time to start thinking about your Christmas gift shopping if you haven’t done so already. To give you some inspiration, we put together a Christmas gift list for the foodie in your life. From an Italian themed Christmas hamper to cooking classes – we promise you will be in your loved ones’ good books this Christmas with one of these gift ideas!


The Spirit of Christmas (Berry Bros & Rudd)

A real treat for those who enjoy the finer things in life! Parcelled within its chic wooden box is a bottle of delicious “The King’s Ginger” liqueur, which was originally concocted for Edward VII. Or maybe a bottle of Glenrothes mature single malt whisky will go down well! A fantastic gift to give to those who enjoy sitting beside a roaring fireside on a cold winter’s night.

Book them an online cooking class!

For the gourmet home cook in your life, there’s nothing more perfect for them than an online cooking class with Flavours! They’ll be transported to Italy from the comfort of their kitchen, as our Flavours chefs come to them, live from Italy, to teach them how to cook delicious regional dishes.

Find the perfect cooking class for them and give them the gift that keeps on giving! They’ll be using their new skills to whip up delicious meals (hopefully for you as well!)

Flavours-style Italian Christmas Foodie Hamper

Put together Flavours-style Italian Christmas Hamper, bulging at the seams with delicious and authentic Italian treats. A wonderful gift for your foodie friends and family, we would recommend including some delicious taralli  for a festive aperitivo, or a traditional panettone. You could also include homemade cantuccini Christmas biscuits or add a Christmas tree decoration to make it even more festive!

Gift Voucher for River Café (River Café)

For a real culinary treat, why not purchase a gift voucher for either lunch or dinner at the River Café. Widely regarded as one of London’s finest restaurants, its style can be described as top-notch Italian cuisine coupled with a relaxed Californian dining experience. A lovely way to make someone happy on Christmas day!
