Reading OFM yesterday where someone had put a quince tree on their wishlist reminded me that I hadn’t looked at The Gluttonous Gardener this festive season. I think they have some very clever and lovely gift ideas, for those that not only love their food but want a hand in it too.
Sure enough, you can buy a lovely quince gift, which contains a tree and some quince and crab apple jelly from Ouse Valley, plus growing instructions and recipes. Given that quince is not necessarily the easiest item to track down, but does make some delicious dishes, then this might just really tick some food lover boxes.
There’s all kinds of fruit that you could choose from, including blackberries, blueberries and wild strawberries (my favourite). I also like the herb tea crate, which would make an unusual gift for a herbal tea lover. Can’t come much fresher than making it from your own herbs. I can also think of a few people that the Moroccan Mint Tea gift would suit too.
This is a great site to find unusual Christmas gifts for a foodie, that won’t be completely consumed and gone by the end of Boxing Day. Still time to order and get delivered in time for the big day.
