Christmas gift guide: 10 gifts for foodies

They say the best gifts come in small packages, but we like to think they come with the taste of chocolate and the scent of savoury turkey. Foodies make the best friends (they always seem to be whipping up something tasty), so why not treat them to the tools they’re pining after this Christmas? From the cooks who spend hours perfecting a Sunday roast to the drink-smiths who prefer to mix a cocktail from scratch and the fabulous friend who loves to throw parties, we all know someone who is passionate about food and entertaining.

Tick off your holiday shopping list with these ten unique gift ideas that any foodie would love to find under the tree on Christmas morning.
