What do you buy for the the culinary adventurer who has everything? When your best friend, partner, husband or wife has almost everything they could ever want, Christmas shopping can be a confusing and frustrating ordeal! A fancy bottle opener? They’ve got a rocket-powered one. A bread maker? Their sourdough technique is already perfected.
Don’t panic! We’ve got a list of great gift ideas for cooks, craft beer fans and even gifts for wine lovers right here. Take a look and get inspired – then get a move on, because Christmas isn’t far away now.
Sushi Making Kit
If you know an adventurous chef, why not introduce them to the art of sushi making? A sushi making set won’t set you back loads of money, and the result will be a delicious new skill that you’ll be able to enjoy too.
This wooden sushi press is a useful gadget for any sushi lover, because it’ll mean they can make delicious Kansai-style oshi-zushi or “pressed sushi” at home.
For the wine lover who has everything except storage space for their beloved bottles, a wine cooler could be the perfect present. Easily installed into their fitted kitchen, you can choose sizes to suit their preferences.
We like this 18 bottle Innocenti Mirror Glass wine cooler, because not only will it fit three cases of wine inside, its stylish looks will bring a touch of modernity to any kitchen. Add to this the benefits of having perfectly chilled – or ambient – wine at all times and you’ve got yourself the perfect wine lovers’ Christmas present.
Professional Knife Sharpener
A good cook is nothing without a set of sharp knives, but keeping them sharp can be difficult without the right tools.
This AnySharp knife sharpener has been designed with a strong sucker on its base, so it can attach – mark-free – to any work surface. Then you simply drag the knife carefully along the sharpening stones, wipe clean and you’re done. The ideal gift for any chef.
Mini Beer Kegs – uKeg Growlers
This gift idea is perfect for the craft beer lover in your life. The Growler Werks uKeg growlers store beer and keep it fresh, but they also dispense it with C02, meaning you’ll have a foaming glass of fresh beer each time.
They look pretty cool too, with their vintage styling, and you can choose black, stainless steel or even copper to match your at-home bar’s aesthetic.
Whether you’re toasting with a glass of champers or wondering whether you can drive the morning after a festive celebration; mulling over if you’ve surpassed the legal limit to drive is a worry everyone could really do without.
This smartphone breathalyser is Bluetooth-enabled and gives you accurate information about your blood alcohol level – as well as telling you when you’ll reach 0.00%.
Eco Drinking Straws
We all want to do our bit for the environment, so if you’re looking for a stocking filler for someone that’ll do good as well as help their gin and tonic taste good, why not get them reusable straws?
These stylish metal straws are durable and reusable, and because they aren’t meant to be thrown away, you’ll be stopping your secret Santa from choking up the planet with plastic straws. Everyone’s a winner!
These are some of the best gift ideas we’ve found on the internet this festive season, but remember, no matter what you choose to buy your difficult foodies and drinks connoisseurs for Christmas, we’re sure they’ll love the thought you put into their gift. Have a wonderful Christmas and a very happy new year from all of us here at My Appliances.
