From coffee shots to cookies, this winter we’ve rounded up all of the stuff you never even knew you needed in our Christmas gift guide. Put these on your Christmas list, or buy for someone else if you’re feeling generous!
It’s made a name for itself for its pastries, but it would be a mistake to overlook Pophams Bakery ceramic range. With everything from porcelain egg cups to candle holders, we can’t stop staring at the pastry plates by potter Jess Jos. The perfect plate for your croissant, or just to make your kitchen look that much prettier.
Many of us have been working from home for the best part of a year and have recognised the importance of good coffee more than ever before. Cue coffee shots from pioneering coffee roasters Allpress. An espresso-strength concentrate of the classic blend, each bottle has enough for 15 shots to add to your morning shake, afternoon bake or evening cocktail.
We learnt more about Erchen Chang’s artistic talent when speaking to her for our Tools of the Trade feature earlier this year, so we were very excited to see her creative collaboration with Fergus Henderson of St. JOHN. These A2 signed screen pints are all hand signed and available for a limited time only. There’s only 100 available, so be quick.
Take your condiment game to the next level with this sauce multipack from Patty & Bun. Each pack contains a bottle of BBQ sauce, P&B mayo and hot sauce, or you can stock up on each sauce individually. The perfect gift for burger lovers and sauce enthusiasts alike – or just for yourself to enjoy all year round.
Whether it’s the prospect of spending Christmas with your family or being stuck in the house… or you just enjoy good wine, we love this survival pack from the clever team at Shop Cuvée. Get a mixed case of three or six bottles sent straight to your door. It’s as simple as that.
A coffee bag that doubles up as a Christmas card up next from oat milk company Minor Figures in collaboration with Perky Blenders. A mix of Brazilian and Kenyan origins, the coffee tastes like Christmas in a cup, with notes of spiced orange and red berries on a base of brown sugar, chocolate and hazelnuts.
That’s right, Crosstown can do more than doughnuts. Get your hands on a selection of 12 handcrafted Crosstown cookies, including 6 x black cacao (an extra rich, dark chocolate) and 6 x chocolate chip (Crosstown’s take on a cookie classic) in time for Christmas. If you can resist the temptation to order for yourself, you can get the cookies gift wrapped for a friend.
You’ve probably seen Who Gives A Crap’s toilet paper in hospitality venues across London, including the Standard Hotel, Daisy Green and Top Cuvée. Working to help reduce deforestation and build lavatories for those in need, you can now buy the A-Z toilet paper for your own home. The bamboo rolls include each letter of the alphabet, so you can let the toilet paper speak for itself.
Two people who love making food that makes people happy are Hong Kong-bred chef Katie and partner Jasper. They’ve spent years creating recipes with just the right amount of chilli. Now, they’ve put it into a variety of jarred sauces. If you like it fiery, you can order a box of six with 4 x peanut rāyu and 2 x black bean rāyu.
A CODE membership is the gift that keeps on giving. If your partner, relative or friend works in hospitality, you can gift them a CODE membership that offers more than 300 exclusive discounts at the best hospitality venues across the country – not to mention plenty of other member perks. Get in touch with the team by emailing [email protected] to find out more.
