One of my favourite things about Christmas is planning what to buy friends and family. I'm so excited to think about what they're into, choose something I know they will love and see their face when they open it. I refuse to buy generic presents for the sake of it, that they probably won't ever use and invariably come in plastic packaging, creating pointless waste.
If you're sick of spending your money on the standard toiletries, chocolates and socks, why not give them something you know they'll use and enjoy, produced in the UK and delivered without any plastic packaging?
If you're sick of receiving the standard gifts, why not send this article to your friends and family as a not-so-subtle hint 😉
For the passionate cook 🧑🍳
Our British Cast Iron Cookware is perfect for anyone who loves to cook. It's so versatile, it can be used on almost any cooking appliance or open flame, indoors or outdoors, to make anything from eggs to lasagne to chocolate brownies (yes really!). With an extra thick base and ergonomically designed handle, we think it's the best quality, British cast iron you can buy, and also the most sustainable. Made using high quality recycled cast iron and shipped without any plastic, these sets will last you forever.
For the pizza enthusiast 🍕
Is your loved one going to be opening a new pizza oven on Christmas Day? Are they already obsessed with their Ooni or Gozney? Make sure they can get cooking straight away with a Pizza Oven Fuel Kit. We're the only UK company to stock a specialist fuel kit for every type of pizza oven. The wood is perfectly dried and cut to size, so you won't need to get the axe out on Christmas morning!
Looking for something a bit more special? Our gorgeous Handmade Pizza Serving Boards are handcrafted in the UK from solid hardwood. They're strong and study, but lightweight and comfortable to hold. Cared for properly, they will be serving pizzas for many Christmases to come, and we can even engrave them for that extra personal touch.
If that all sounds too much, keep it simple with one of our Pizza Cookbooks
For the BBQ lover 🍖
We've all got a friend who spent lockdown learning to cook outdoors. Feed their BBQ obsession with our Sustainable British Charcoal and Smoking Woods. Our Applewood charcoal will add something special to their next cook, and our Whisky Barrel Chunks have the novelty factor whilst also adding incredible flavour.
