The Best French Foodie Gifts this Christmas

Entering the Christmas season is magical and yet it can become overwhelming when looking for the perfect gift for a fellow foodie.  Finding the present that will please their exquisite taste is not easy and no-one - oh non personne -  wants to buy a present that will find itself back on sale after a dusty month on the shelf.  

But fear not! You still have time to go shopping or even to make a unique gift yourself! Plus, we decided to give you a little extra help to bring happiness to any food lover no matter what your budget is.

DIY Mulled Wine Jam

This Christmas, show your friends and family how much you love them by giving them a gift you made yourself. In true foodie spirit, have fun making a present that can be offered to anyone – even that work colleague for this year’s Secret Santa. There are plenty recipes out there and this Confiture de Vin Chaud found on this French blog is definitely a splendid Christmas idea.

Borough Market Gourmet Goodies

Nothing is more certain to please a foodie this Christmas than some French gourmet gifts. From a fig jam that will pair to perfection with a succulent Fois Gras, to those special Noël condiments to use in mulled wine, Borough Market has all the French delicacies you could dream of. Our Christmas tip is to select a few products and create your own gift hampers.


Le Larousse Gastronomique

This book is THE Bible of all French cookbooks! “It contains recipes, tips, cooking styles and origins for almost every dish in history” and includes over 900 beautiful pictures. We all have cookbooks but this one is special; it’s the one you pick up whenever you need information or inspiration and it’s the one present every true foodie needs in their life.  

Le Creuset signature cast iron oval casserole

This iconic casserole can be found in any French grandmother’s kitchen and, if you decide to present one to the foodie in your life this Christmas, you will find it on your table for many, many years to come. With this ultimate dish, you can cook the most delicious boeuf bourguignon, daude de sanglier or simply the most amazing poulet roti – (That’s “Roast Chicken”, to you and me!). It truly is the best gift for a French foodie who spends all his/her time in the kitchen.
