Christmas is approaching at lightning speed, but there’s still time to get those remaining gifts. If you’re stuck for ideas or you’re worried that you’ve left it too late, don’t panic! Here are some last minute life savers your other half will love!


The foodie

Does your partner love cooking or are they a fan of going out and trying fancy restaurants? Do they have a penchant for wine or craft beers or are they always on the lookout for new recipes? If you’ve got a foodie in the family, there are all kinds of gifts you can put together or buy at the last minute. Vouchers for restaurants are a great idea, especially if there’s a place they’ve been keen to try for ages or a restaurant that has sentimental value. Another option is to order recipe books online or look into cooking schools that offer classes. You could also take a trip to a farm shop or a festive food fayre and create a bespoke hamper full of their favorite foods and drinks. If you’re keen to go down the experience route, why not organize a trip to a vineyard and do some wine tasting?
