Deluxe Herb Hamper

Jekka’s Herb Farm in Alveston have a great selection of Christmas gifts available.

BBQ Gift Box

Described as “the ultimate gift for the BBQ fan”, Bristol-based California Rancher‘s BBQ Gift Box contains one of every product they make: four different seasonings, a bottle of their BBQ sauce, both oak and beech Smoking Wood Chips and a 160g pouch of oak smoked sea salt. It also includes an info sheet with a few of their favourite recipes, as well as instructions for using the wood chips on your barbecue at home.

Mexican Treats

Lovers of Mexican food will appreciate a gift from Clifton Village’s Otomi – an outlet in the Clifton Arcade that specialises in Mexican goods.

Their products can also be bought online, and include kitchenware, glassware and a variety of food and drink products – have a look at their website or visit them for inspiration!

“Cookware specialists for over 40 years”, Kitchens on Whiteladies Road is a haven for home cooks. With a small shop front, its size is deceptive – inside you’ll find three floors dedicated to all manner of kitchen products.

Keen cooks may appreciate a gift voucher for the store (available in a variety of values), or select from a range of products that you can also buy online. There’s a lot of stuff on their website that I’ve never seen in my life…Camembert Baker, anyone…?

  1. I enjoyed your post very much. The Christmas gift ideas are perfect. I especially like the cookware products from the Kitchencookshop website. I also got some information about Jekka herb farm which deals with over 650 varieties of rare herbs and medicinal herbs.
