Wedding Gift Guide 2023: For Foodie Couples
It’s officially wedding season, and if you’re stuck for what to give the happy couple, I’ve selected 10 gifts that any foodies would love.
Buying wedding gifts can be difficult, so to make your life a bit easier I’ve selected a wide range of options including cookery school vouchers, tableware, a kitchen gadget, and a curry subscription.
Let me know if you find a winner in the selection below...
Swinton Park Cookery School voucher
We recently stayed at Swinton Park (you can read about it here!) and I discovered that they have a cookery school with a wide range of different courses. There are full and half day options, with courses such as show stopping canapes, South East Asian, or fish and seafood.
Sometimes if I’m struggling to think of something to give someone, I find that an experience is a really nice gift. And I think a lot of couples would enjoy doing a Swinton cookery course together.
Marble Glaze Ceramic Cake Stand £75
For the couples that love baking (and eating!) cakes, this stand* is a beaut! It’s handmade in Portugal, and the ceramic has a beautiful marble effect glaze with a matt finish.
I really like that each piece will be slightly different due to the handmade nature of these, making it a unique gift.
Stoke Ceramics White Gluggle Jug £39.99
If your foodie friends are anything like me, they’ll love the gift of some really beautiful tableware. There are so many choices when it comes to nice plates, tablecloths, dishes, glasses etc. But this gluggle jug* is something so many people would love.
It is available in lots of different colours, and I really liked this simple white option. The autumn orange colour is really nice too.
Selfridges Ultimate treats hamper £100
This Ultimate Treats Hamper* from Selfridges is perfect for a couple with a sweet tooth! It’s a decadent selection of some delicious Selfridges Selection products.
The fill includes chocolates, two different flavours of shortbread, a chocolate coin, chocolate pecans, and a selection of teas. Hopefully it won’t cause too many arguments when it comes to sharing out the different products.
Fortnum & Mason Canvas Picnic Backpack £195
For the foodie couples that also love the outdoors, this picnic backpack* would be perfect.
This canvas backpack contains everything you need for your picnic (apart from the food of course), including plates, glasses, cutlery, napkins, a corkscrew, and a mini salt and pepper. And it's fully insulated too.
The canvas bag is also made from recycled materials!
Our Place Cast Iron Pot £150
Move over Le Creuset, there’s a new cast iron pot on the scene! A wonderful gift for those who love cooking at home.
Like the Our Place Always Pan, they’ve designed their cast iron pot to be multifunctional and it can be used for braising, searing, deep frying, roasting, baking, the list goes on…
This comes in some really cool colours too - spice is my favourite! And the pan also comes with two silicone Hot Grips and a beechwood scraper.
Philips Viva Collection Juicer £79.99
There’s so many options when it comes to kitchen gadgets, but this Philips juicer* would be a great gift for those who are health conscious and like to make their own juices at home.
It has some really good reviews, and most importantly, is easy to clean.
Borough market treats hamper £76.95
Borough Market is easily one of the best places in the UK to discover some incredible artisanal food producers, and this hamper gives the recipient the opportunity to try some of their amazing produce.
There is A LOT packed into this Borough Market Treats Gift Hamper, including So Chocolicious salted caramel truffles, Wyfe of Bath cheese, Monmouth espresso, and Food & Forest cinnamon and honey cashews.
In a previous gift guide I included the ‘Taste of Borough Market’ tasting tour which would also be a wonderful experience - this is a 3 hour guided tour with Celia Brooks, and tickets are £110 each.
Curry Spice Kit Subscription £48
There’s quite a few food subscriptions around at the moment (there’s another one below!) and this curry kit subscription* stood out. Every month for 6 months, the recipient will be sent fresh spices and recipe cards to make their own curries at home. And the kits aren’t just for curries, you’ll also make side dishes like chutneys, rice dishes or bread.
The curry recipes are from all over the world, and include things like Javanese chicken curry, Goan pork balchao with coconut pancakes, and kashmiri lamb curry with raisin chutney and poppy seed raita.
Cheesegeek Subscription (from £96)
Who doesn’t love cheese?! Cheesegeek offer a variety of subscription options, with prices starting at £96 for 3 cheese boxes, delivered monthly.
Each box contains 4-5 cheeses, and they guarantee that in a 12 month period the recipient won’t receive the same cheese twice. I think this would be a really delicious gift, it’s something quite different, and a great way to discover some new cheese you might not have tried before.
