It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! We’ve had snow here in Vancouver for the past 2 days and I love it. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that we will have a white Christmas this year. It’s day 11 of my Countdown To Christmas. There are just 14 days left until Christmas day, that means that there are 13 shopping days left. Who do you still have on your list to buy for? Let us know! We’re here to help you find great gifts for everyone on your list. Read through our Countdown To Christmas posts, make your list, check it twice and head out to buy all of my fabulous gift ideas. All of the gifts on my lists are gifts that I would love to give (and receive) so you can feel confident that they are the best of the best.
COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS DAY 11 GIFTS FOR FOODIES:
I love creating food baskets for my foodie friends. Yummy bars of decadent chocolate, some savory nibbles, artisan crackers and cheese, perhaps something bubbly… arrange it in a nice basket (maybe nestled in a tea towel?) and voilà, the perfect gift for a foodie!
Gift Idea #1- PC Black Label Black Cherry & Peppercorn Artisan Crisps Dotted with ground black peppercorns, sweet dried cherries, pecans and sesame seeds, these irresistibly sweet and savoury crisps would be lovely paired with a nice piece of cheese.
Gift Idea #2- PC Black Label Fleur De Sel Caramels These luxuriously smooth caramels are made with creamery butter and blended with a pinch of fleur de sel, a natural sea salt with small delicate flakes and soft floral notes. The contrasting and mildly salty taste of fleur de sel complements and enhances the soft, sweet richness of these bite-sized indulgences. Sure to please anyone who loves a combination of salty and sweet. Imported from France.
Gift Idea #3- PC Black Label Turrón Duro Made with crunchy roasted almonds and caramelized honey sandwiched between crisp wafers, these exquisite and authentically Spanish nougats are crafted according to tradition by master confectioners. Imported from Spain.
Gift Idea #4- PC Black Label Vidal Ice Syrup Harvested and pressed from frozen Vidal grapes, this divinely rich syrup is bursting with the flavourful nuances of apricot and plum, along with the balanced acidity of citrus. This versatile ice syrup can be used in a myriad of both savoury and sweet culinary creations.
Gift Idea #5- PC Black Label Sipping Hot Chocolate Visibly rich 65% cocoa dark chocolate shavings meld with cocoa powder and pure cane sugar to create this intensely full-flavoured hot chocolate mix.
Gift Idea #6- PC Black Label Pomegranate Lemon Sparkling Beverage Exotic pomegranate melds with tart, lemon in this naturally flavoured and perfectly sweetened beverage. This lightly bubbly refresher is made with water from the French Vosges sandstone. Imported from France.
Gift Idea #7- PC Black Label Macadamia Nuts Specially selected macadamia nuts are dry roasted and lightly salted to enhance their buttery rich sweetness and fine crunch. Delicious whether enjoyed as a snack, baked into savoury dishes, or as part of dessert.
