The best last-minute Christmas gifts for foodies Wine News

Christmas shopping is one of those chores along with dinner prep – both are fun to make, but very stressful to make. So if you pushed it off at the last minute, you won’t be the only one.

But if it’s too late to ship a cashmere shawl from Jammu, or if the toy store just rolled out this year’s must-have tattoo for toddlers, don’t worry. There are a whole bunch of food subscriptions – regular deliveries of delicious food and drink – that make fantastic gifts. Some offer instant pdf certificates that you can print out and give to the lucky recipient, making this one of the few gifts you can buy on Christmas morning – not that I’m suggesting you leave it until then. Nobody wants to type on a computer keyboard when the before-lunch traffic jams pop.

Food subscriptions can be an easy fix for party shopping scammers, but they’re not just a cop. Rather, it is a gift that is not just for Christmas, but well distributed throughout the year. Who doesn’t find a bundle of cheering treats during the dullest months?

Some of the boxes offer enthusiasts the chance to explore more – whiskey regions of the world, for example, or unusual vegan finds. Some have a more practical aspect – baking kits or cooking classes for children. Others simply mean regular deliveries of premium meat or coffee, which may be hard to come by or just too extravagant to consider buying for yourself.

What they all have in common is that they make life easier – both for the giver and for the receiver. Although unfortunately they will not be cooking Christmas dinner.

Ideal for lovers of experimental cooking

Sous Chef

Sous Chef is a foodie’s secret source for unusual and hard-to-find ingredients, and its monthly subscription is a dream gift for kitchen explorers. The box features a mix of intriguing new finds, staple foods and exotic snacks, like White Mausu’s Peanut Rayu (a cult ingredient) and Acquerello’s 7-Year Aged Risotto Rice. Above all, there is a guide for each of them, with recipes and flavor pairings.

£330 for a 12 month subscription including delivery, or £27.50 per month plus £3.99 delivery.
