Feast on the best Christmas food gifts this holiday season, whether you're on the hunt for a loved one or yourself.

Just like the best Christmas hampers, you can't go wrong with giving food gifts at Christmas. Practical gifts that can be used, enjoyed, and more often than not, consumed, Christmas food gifts tend to go down a storm.

Given the sheer volume and variety of foodie gifts available, it can be challenging to find a present that's just right. To help you shop, we've handpicked the best Christmas food gifts across all budgets, meals, and gift types (be it devices, food and drink packages, or prep kits).

Just be sure to choose wisely, because many are perishable and therefore non-refundable and non-returnable. 

Best Christmas food gifts

Gourmet food gifts are second to none, especially if you're already shopping for Christmas gifts for friends or Christmas gifts for your parents.

From traditional baskets and luxury indulgences to one-of-a-kind memberships, nifty gadgets, DIY bread-baking kits, and more. Suffice to say, there's truly something for everyone in our guide, even for the picky foodie.

Samuel Goldsmith

After leaving university with a BSc in Food from the University of Birmingham, Samuel embarked on a career in teaching; he taught cookery to teenagers at secondary school level. At the weekends, he worked as a sous chef and assisted on food photography shoots during the holidays. 


After 8 years as a teacher, he decided to concentrate fully on food writing. Nearly 15 years after he began his professional food career, his work has featured in national and international publications including Waitrose Food, Australian Delicious, and the LAD Bible Group. Samuel was also a nutritional consultant for BBC’s Eat Well for Less. Throughout his career he has specialised in recipe writing and he still loves to teach people how to cook (although he’s not quite as patient as he used to be!).


After travelling Europe searching for the best coffee shops, he landed the perfect role working across woman&home, Woman’s Weekly, Country Homes & Interiors, Livingetc, Homes & Gardens and GoodtoKnow. Along with the Test Kitchen team, he produces recipes and looks after the content for these magazines and websites and others in the Future portfolio. 


Away from Future, Samuel is also Co-Vice Chair of the Guild of Food Writers and a Trustee of 91 Ways CIC. He can usually be found binge-watching TV shows, wandering a museum or escaping the city for greener and sunnier climates. He also dreams of buying a run-down Italian villa and turning it into a cookery school in the sun.
