The DeLonghi Alicia Espresso maker is an ideal gift for coffee lovers. It is one of the most popular espresso coffee making machines in Italy, and there are three very good reasons for.
Treats from England for the foodie
They say that France produces more cheeses than any other country but when I think about the wonderful country cheeses that are available from England I suspect that statistic isn’t fully accurate. England has a cheese-making history that goes back hundreds of years and produces marvels such as superior Stiltons to mature farmhouse Cheddars.
Give the gift of health
Mmm … who doesn’t love food? And I don’t know about you but that’s a problem for me. I find that the easiest way to ruin a diet – either simply eating healthier or a weight loss diet – is when I get the nibbles. We are almost hard-wired to snack these days and it’s so easy to reach for the wrong kind of food.

No matter how much we enjoy other cuisines, I think that many of us admit that foods from France just have a special caché, flavor and unmistakable style that is missing from other country’s offerings. The finest cheeses, charcuterie, chocolates and more are all available to us all to buy online.
Who can resist chocolate?
I know I can’t and yet it’s very rare that I’d buy it for myself. After all, I like to think that I’m eating healthily – most of the time. But what can I do it someone buys me some beautiful chocolate as a gift? Of course I can’t resist and this is what makes it such a special gift that’s suitable for almost everyone.
Recently we’ve been researching a question we’re often asked. ‘Where can I buy meat that is completely natural?’ And admittedly, it is difficult to come up with the answer. So many vendors have, to put it bluntly, leapt onto the bandwagon.
High tea from Harrods
There was a time when the highly prized branded goods from Harrods were only available to lucky Londoners or to tourists visiting Britain. (Doesn’t everyone visiting London go to Harrods?) But that was in the old days; today this prestigious store ships its luxury, branded goods worldwide. (Food items cannot be delivered to Australia and New Zealand however, but other purchases are fine).
For the person who has everything – your own personal lobsterman
Seriously. This is a wonderful gift or treat. (Scroll down to see a couple of the lobstermen). There are several places online that sell fresh and prepared lobster and this site does that too but in addition, you can have your own dedicated lobster trap, complete with its own fisherman, who will send you your own catch. But that’s not all.
There’s more to culinary classes and tours than simply ‘learning to cook’. These are social occasions plus, if you check these out, a wonderful way to travel and discover new cuisines.

Most of us have outdoor cooking facilities these days. We’ve come to appreciate how beautiful food can be when it’s cooked simply on the grill and eaten out of doors. But what about when you’re on the go?
There’s not much doubt about it. I can’t think of anyone I know who would love one of these delicious cheesecakes as gift. Yes, we all say that we’re trying to eat healthily but what can you do when you receive a gift like this? I know that I can’t resist.
This is a very cool idea – quite literally. In fact, it’s one of those ‘I wish I’d thought of that’ things. The Corkcicle is a simple and effective way of keeping your wines at the right temperature for drinking. As the company explains on their website, red wines sitting on the dining table become too warm and white wines in ice buckets become too cold.
Gifts that everyone will love
There are very few people who don’t appreciate fine foods. Sure, we’re all trying to eat as healthily as we can these days but if someone gives to a delicious treat as a gift, what can you do?It would be so rude to not indulge! By giving gourmet treats we are saying ‘go on, enjoy yourself, you deserve it’.
The easy way to please your guests
Entertaining can be tricky enough without having to produce every scrap of delicious food yourself. This is particularly true during holidays and special celebrations; there are so many other factors to get right. Several years ago I discovered just how easy entertaining can be when you use ready-to-serve or ready-to-rehear foods for your guests and family.
The best gift for the foodie or cocktail lover
I know before I even start that I’m going to find it impossible to describe exactly what these are. But if you’re looking for an extremely unusual gift, these are for you. Some people are so difficult when it comes to choosing a suitable gift but these kits will satisfy even the most jaded recipients.
Genuine Italian food and treats available online
I’m lucky because there are some lovely specialist food shops in our local area. But nevertheless, there are many foods that I remember from vacations in Italy, or dining at lovely restaurants, that I just can’t find. So you can imagine how delighted I was to find this wonderful website.
A year-round gift
This is a superb gift for a loved one – although equally, you might want to treat yourself to this strawberry club membership. Here’s how it works. Join the club online and you or your recipient will receive a different pack of delightful chocolate-dipped strawberries four times in the next year. What’s great about this is that you pay as you go.
What is a bento box?
Bento boxes are the way to store and carry lunchbox meals. But they are so much more than that – they are a stylish traditional Japanese art that has been around for hundreds of years. Today, they are available in sophisticated and traditional designs for adults and modern, funky versions that are perfect for kids.
Super Italian & French chocolate treats
We can all buy various brands of hot chocolate in our local grocery stores and supermarkets but unless you have an extremely good deli nearby, it’s unlikely that you can buy these delights locally. However, they are freely available online to be delivered to your door. And once you try them, the supermarket variety will pale in comparison. But that’s just one reason why these are a wonderful gift idea.
Brewing Craft beer at home has never been easier!
Craft beer has never been more popular. Now you too can brew your own craft beer, in the comfort of your own home. Control every part of the process, ensuring the highest quality brew.
Romance, history and intrigue in a cup of tea…
Does that seem a little fanciful? Maybe but that’s the way I see these delicious teas. The company that produces these teas started their business in 1867 – exactly fifty years before the Russian Revolution – in St. Petersburg, Russia. As a designer,I have to admit that I have bought these teas simply because of the gorgeous packaging only to discover on delivery just how special they are as a beverage. And then there’s this history and romance…

Craft beer club, for someone who has sampled all the local beers, and wants more
Craft beer is a wonderful thing, isn’t it? A good craft beer really shines like nothing else. If you have already sampled everything local, expanding your palate to new, varied beers becomes a chore, driving long distances to sample a new set of brews can take hours.
Scientifically designed glass improves all spirits aroma
Scientists have designed a glass specifically for drinking spirits neat. The glass is designed around Naturally Engineered Aroma Technology, or NEAT. The NEAT glass lets the alcohol scent remain in the glass, while releasing the fine aromas of a good spirit. The strong alcohol scent we get when drinking spirits numbs the olfactory senses. By leaving the alcohol scent behind, you are enhancing your experience.

Frankly, it is a try it before you die coffee, and belongs on your “bucket list” along with Wagyu Kobe beef and The Macallan single malt.
Great gift ideas for whiskey lovers
Every whiskey aficionado knows that whiskey should be enjoyed at 15 Centigrade to really open up the bouquet without sacrificing texture. Ice will over-chill your drink, and leaves a relatively small window of opportunity to enjoy your spirit at just the right time and temperature without breaking up your whiskey.
If you’re looking for an easy way to entertain – but with the best possible gourmet foods – there’s nothing easier than ordering online and having your dinner party or special meal delivered right to you door.
