Luxury Food Gifts that never Fail to please

Words by Joseph Broome

Food, glorious food. Nothing can elicit joy quite like it – that’s why chocolate bouquets and celebratory cakes are always so warmly received. These are gifts that tap into our purely indulgent sides, the things we eat not because we need to, but because we want to.

Here, we’ve compiled a list of the ultimate foodie presents, from the edible to the experiential – food gifting isn’t exclusively about eating, after all. Browse our mouthwatering edit of treats, tipples and tools for all manner of occasions, safe in the knowledge that, whatever you decide to gift, it’ll appeal not just to your recipient’s tastes, but to their tastebuds, too.

Best luxury food gift: Armand de Brignac Blanc de Blancs Champagne (75cl)

The biggest and most important celebrations call for the most luxurious food and drink gifts, and what better to fulfil this role than Champagne? Indeed, there’s a built-in sense of occasion around it – that’s why you’ll find it sprayed on podiums and broken over the bow of a new ship. For your fondest loved ones, we recommend Armand de Brignac’s showstopping Blanc de Blancs Champagne, as we defy anyone not to be impressed by the world-renowned metallic Ace of Spades bottle and, upon popping the cork, the elegant palate of exotic fruits and sweet spice.

Best unusual food gift: Teaspec Regent 2011 Pu-Erh Tea Coins Set

The most important criteria for a food gift is, of course, that it tastes good. And yet some recipients – specifically, those who appreciate the unexpected, the curated and the one-of-a-kind – want to be impressed by more than flavour alone. It’s for these people that you should look to our favourite unusual foodie present: Teaspec’s tea coins. They’ll open your loved one’s eyes to the world of pu-erh tea; it’s something of a marvel, hailing from China’s Yunnan Province, fermented like kombucha and renowned for its myriad health benefits and complex, aromatic taste.

Best romantic food gift: Harrods White Chocolate Strawberries (270g)

There are no prizes for guessing which treat we consider to be the most romantic food gift: chocolate-covered strawberries are, and always will be, an easy winner. Sweet thanks to the freeze-dried fruit yet sensual because of the chocolate in which they’re decadently enrobed, they’re a gift that will inspire swooning in both recipient and giver – after all, we suspect that you and your loved one will enjoy them together.

Best gift for a foodie: Leonardi Il Patriarca 30-Year-Old Balsamic

 

It can be tricky to shop for a foodie. Their culinary-connoisseur status means they’ve likely got their hands on the latest gadgets and must-try ingredients before the rest of us have even learned of their existence. So, when it comes to gifting, we suggest keeping things simple by opting for a pantry staple, but sourcing one of incomparable quality. Try this 30-year-old balsamic, sure to impress even the most devoted foodie thanks to its impressive provenance – what else on the kitchen shelf can claim a decades-long life? – and a sweet and sour flavour profile of immense nuance and power.

Best gift for a chocoholic: Harrods Chocolate Fruit and Nut Collection (850g)

Gifting without chocolate is like Harrods without its Chocolate Hall: it just wouldn’t be the same. Luckily, said Chocolate Hall offers quite the selection of sweet treats to satisfy those in your life with an insatiable chocolate craving. With dark, milk and white varieties all taken care of, the Chocolate Fruit and Nut Collection makes the ultimate gift for a cocoa connoisseur – and it’ll provide many an evening of indulgent nibbling thanks to its generous size, too.

Best food gift for him: Dinner at The Grill

Goodbye socks, hello steaks – the days of dull gifting for men are over. For a dad, a foodie man or simply the man who has everything, we recommend leaning away from the usual birthday and Christmas suspects and turning instead to the experiential: in this case, dinner at The Grill, Harrods’ homage to meat in all its glorious forms. What’s more, this is something you can enjoy together – it goes without saying that quality time is the most special gift of all.

Best gift for home cooks: Marcato Ravioli Stamp

For home cooks, food is all about the process. They could dine out or order in, but instead every evening represents a chance to test out a new recipe, gadget or technique – your gift, then, should offer simply another opportunity for them to flex their culinary muscles. Marcato’s ravioli stamp ticks all the right boxes: it’s high quality, endlessly satisfying to use and, what’s more, all but guarantees you’ll be served a plate of freshly prepared ravioli next time you go round to the recipient’s for dinner.

Best gift for those who don’t like to cook: Anova Precision Cooker Pro

 

For every devoted home cook, there’s someone who views the kitchen as a place to avoid at all costs. What food-related gift could you possibly bestow upon such a person?
