Christmas gifts a foodie will love

Jujube Fruits and hickory nuts

If you are looking for a unique snack this Christmas jujube fruits and hickory nuts could be just the thing. Jujube fruit is a red coloured berry which comes from the buckthorn family. It is often known as the red date. While it is new to the UK people in the Far East have been using it for thousands of years to promote health and well being. It tastes very similar to a date and is quite delicious. They are available as whole fruit, stuffed with almonds, walnuts or cashew or sliced into crisps.

Hickory nuts come from the hickory tree which is found in North America and South-East Asia. They have a lovely rich taste which is similar to butterscotch. They also won the Great Taste Award. As well as being tasty they are a good source of manganese. This helps form connective tissues, maintains strong bones and helps protect cells from antioxidants.

These products are available in gift jars (£12.99) from You can also buy the smaller packs at Ocado, Grape Tree, Wholefoods and Revital.

Cadbury’s Chocolate

No Christmas would be complete without chocolate. Cadbury’s have a range of chocolates that make great stocking fillers. What Christmas stocking would be complete without a selection box? The Cadbury Medium selection box has a great mix of favourites including the Cadbury Double Decker, Crunchie and Dairy Milk Buttons (RRP £2.99)

Some of the treats include Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate Jolly Santa’s which come in packs of five. Each Santa has his own special look with seven different looks in all. (RRP £2.99) A tube of Cadbury Dairy Milk buttons would also be a welcome gift (RRP £1.42). Cadbury Snow Bites are incredibly addictive and a bag of these is always welcome. The milk chocolate balls encased in crisp sugar shells would also look brilliant decorating a Christmas cake. (RRP £1.15)

Don’t forget to add the chocolate decorations on the Christmas tree. A packet of Cadbury Dairy Milk Tree Decorations is RRP £2.13. They might not last until Christmas though.

Shortbread and mince pies from Walkers

Christmas is a time for sweet treats. There is nothing nicer than sitting down with a cup of tea, a slice of Christmas case and a selection of biscuits. One of the biscuits I always love at Christmas is shortbread. This year Walkers have come up with a range of festive shortbread treats and mince pies that are perfect for the season.

Do you know someone who is always cooking in a slow cooker? They may well love a wonderbag. This is a revolutionary new method of slow cooking food without using fuel. All you do is heat your food up to a boil then place the covered dish into the wonderbag. It will continue cooking the food and keeping it warm for up to twelve hours. It is a great way to save energy.

The wonderbag is lightweight and portable so it would be perfect for taking camping or on other outdoor adventures. It is also very good at keeping drinks cool. I think any foodie would love to try one of these.

Wonderbag is available on RRP £35
