Gifts He’ll Want to Get His Teeth Into
When it comes to ‘gifts for him’ it’s long been known that the quickest way to any man’s heart is via his stomach, and with the selection of fabulous food and drink gifts available for your favourite gastronome, he’ll be singing your praises in no time!
Food glorious food!
If he’s a lover of the hot and spicy, why not give him the ‘grow your own’ chili kit, for the ultimate in window-box gardening skills! Who knows, the fruits of his labour may entice him to create some spicy dishes of his own in the kitchen! Or if he prefers something less ‘lively’ on his plate, perhaps try the ‘grow your own’ herb kit – perfect to chuck in the next spag bol!
Perhaps the man in your life is a bit of a health nut, in which case gifts for him might include the gorgeous deluxe fresh fruit basket, filled to the brim with a selection of the finest and freshest seasonal and exotic fruit – pineapples, grapes, satsumas, apples – he’ll be able to look horribly smug, while the rest of you tuck into the usual festive fare of snacks and chocs!
Otherwise, make the foodie experience an active one, with gifts for him which combine the best of food and drink, with an exciting trip – for example, a wine tasting experience and tour of an English vineyard, with a history tour, a wine tasting, a cold buffet lunch (after all that wandering about) – and even your own complimentary wine bottle to take home afterwards… Otherwise gifts for him don’t come much more suave than a Thames Dinner Cruise for two in a luxury catamaran cruiser, combining a night-time cruise of London, entertainment from a live jazz band and a top-notch four-course a la carte dinner with wine and chocolates thrown in! Dig out that old dinner jacket and smarten him up for the occasion, he’ll love how the high-life tastes compared to a usual Saturday night knees-up down at the local…
You might also want to treat him to luxury gifts for him that can be enjoyed outdoors – for example, the Baileys Hamper, which presents a bottle of the famous Baileys treat with two personalised glasses, some Twinings coffee and a box of delicious mint cremes – the perfect basis for a picnic – even one in your living room!
Tackle a thirst!
For lovers of fine-quality drinks, possible gifts for him might include a personalised 12 year old malt whiskey, or luxury champagne – a ‘premiere cuvee’ blend of Meunier, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, presented in a gift box. Certainly more stylish than the usual four-pack he keeps in the fridge. Make sure you get a glass or two yourself!
With the ‘morning after’ in mind, good choices might be the ‘tea and coffee’ gift box, which takes the humble tea institution to dizzy new heights, with the chance to grow his own coffee beans and tea leaves! The box includes seeds, growing pots, coconut husk compost, little plant markers and a booklet of handy tips. He’ll never look at a PG Tips in the same way again!
Sweet tooth gifts!
If he’s more of a sweet tooth man – and who said chocolate was for the ladies only – then he’ll love the more masculine spin on the yummy stuff with the quirky Chocoholics pizza! Created from the highest quality of chocolate, this pre-sliced chocolate ‘pizza’ combines Belgian chocolate with a choice of toppings – from jelly beans to honeycomb – and featuring Smarties, mini-marshmallows and vanilla fudge somewhere along the way! It comes in either an 8 slice, 10 inch version, or 16 slice, 12 inch version – but either way, it’s a sure fire thing that there’ll be competition for a slice of this memorable gift. Just remember – this is one pizza that doesn’t go in the microwave!!
And if he’s the caring, sharing type – or has no choice in the matter – then make it easy with the Big Share basket of treats – a giant basket, containing a delicious range of wickedly tasty treats for everyone – packed with chocolate muffins, brownies and shortbreads, and all overflowing from a lovely keepsake wicker basket. A perfect party-gift or a practical compromise where family members are concerned!
So go on, treat the man in your life with delicious food and drink gifts for him. With so many options on offer he’ll be spoilt for choice – and who knows, chances are he’ll need a bit of help getting through them all…
