It’s the time of year when you really should be poring the Christmas gift selections on websites for other people, but I can’t help but keep adding things to my list! Here’s just a few things I would love to see in my Christmas stocking this year!
A “my egg and soldiers” egg cup set
Last year I nearly bought the equally cool soldier egg cup for my dad, but when I went to order one they’d sold out. This year they have the amazing my egg and soldiers egg cup set with this ultra cute horse so your soldiers can ride to their yolky fate! Available from Of Cabbages & Kings, who are definitely worth checking out for more Christmas gift ideas!
Spotty pudding bowl
This gorgeous spotty pudding bowl is the ultimate addition to any kitchen. It’s kitsch, it’s retro. I would never want to put it in the cupboard. Bespoke Country has a few stores up North, the latest being their shop in York, which I bought lots of divine reindeer ribbon from.
A subscription to Waitrose Food Illustrated
Price: £30 for non partnership cardholders, cheaper if you are!
I’d love to get a subscription to Waitrose Food Illustrated! The food is always delicious with lots of seasonal ideas to inspire. The photography is always outstanding as well and gives me plenty of ideas for my own photography.
A cookery lesson at Restaurant 27, Burgoyne Road, Southsea.
I haven’t been here yet but it’s more than promising as the head chef is former head chef of my current favourite restaurant Bistro Montparnasse. I was so excited to see he is now offering cookery lessons. Haven’t enquired as to the price yet but can’t imagine it will be more than£150 at worst. You’re guaranteed to learn some great stuff, and surely it’s the gift that keeps on giving back?
A halogen oven
This clever little oven can cook your meals up to 60% fasters and use much less energy than your regular oven. So if you want a quick roast in the evenings you could get this out and have a roast chicken in just 35 minutes! I might even be bothered to make a roast during the week with this! The halogen oven is available Amazon.
