Artisanal Christmas Hampers and Food Gifts

Craved sent me the Craft Christmas Taster to try. It arrives in a handsome Craved wooden crate with a hinged lid. Everything is packed carefully in straw (all of their packaging is 100% recyclable), and glass items are wrapped further in corrugated cardboard. There are lots of gorgeous treats inside, listed below. The gorgeous tub of Bouef Bourguignon crisps, part potato crisps and part jerky, were the first to be devoured. Rillettes next with that lovely bottle fermented cider. It is a perk of the job that I get to taste everything, and there is nothing in there that I wouldn’t cheerfully buy again. YUM!

All of these items are new to me, and I spend my time trying to find new and exciting things in the world of food and drink, so I am impressed. It is a joy and would make a superb gift.

Five Other Perfect Christmas Gifts from Craved for Food Lovers

Craved offer a lot more than five gifts but I know how life is. BUSY! So I have selected some which I know you will enjoy. 

Experimental Gin & Tonic Cocktail Kit

I love the sound of the Hepple Juniper and Douglas Fir Gin. Christmas in a glass! It comes with some interesting craft tonics and almonds to snack on while you experiment. The larger size also has premium gin from the East London Liquor Company, the lovely Bermondsey Tonic Waters and the Square Root tonics (I love both of these brands and use them at home) and more snacks.

From £35.

This is the perfect gift if you are travelling home to stay with family or to a friends for dinner. Packed with the best of British charcuterie and cheeses, there are some crackers in here including golden cenarth cheese from Caws Cenarth Cheese in Wales, Coppa ham from Beal’s Farm Charcuterie and wild mushroom & truffle saucisson from Moons Green Charcuterie.

From £59.

Beer-Meat-Hot

Everyone has at least one person in their lives who would love the Beer-Meat-Hot box! Tasty craft beers and small batch snacks to power anyone through the festive season. Expect truffle beer sticks, spicy sweet potato crisps, biltong, together to down with some excellent craft brews and excellent sauces including the terrific hot sauce from Dalston Chillies..

From £29.

Amazing Vinegar Making

I love the produce from Cult Vinegar and use it all the time in my kitchen. Sublime hand crafted live vinegars, rich in flavour and natural probiotics, and in the larger size their wonderful Vinegar Vase, hand crafted in the UK by Cult Vinegar. I never recommend anything I don’t love, I also know Jonathan (he was one of the early food bloggers in London, like myself!) and I just love what he is doing here. All style AND substance and everyone I have introduced to it has loved it. 

From £42.

Make Your Own Hamper

For this I am going to suggest the items I would love in a handcrafted hamper for Christmas. Pump St Bakery Chocolate is one of my favourites, and it is a real treat; Gooseberry Gin and / or Rhubarb Vodka for Christmas Cocktails (make mine a sour!); Clementine, Black Cardamom and Saffron Marmalade from The Modern Pantry for Christmas breakfast (on porridge, hello!) or with a cheeseboard and Welshmen’s Caviar, dried and toasted laver seaweed for your breakfast eggs, will start you off nicely!
