One way or another, we all know someone that’s always got food on the brain. Whether it’s a friend that’s already excited about festive treats, or a family member that can’t wake up without their tea and toast, we’ve rounded up great gifts that they’ll love opening on Christmas Day.
Ninja Foodi Max OP500UK 7.5 Litre Multi Cooker - Black
The Ninja Max multi cooker will make them feel like all their Christmases have come at once. From slow cooking succulent pizzas to recreating their Nando’s order, with so many cooking options they’ll be able to try out all the mouth-watering recipes that flood social media.
From roasting vegetables, to slow cooking a hearty stew and dumplings, they can whip up some absolute treats with all the multi-cooking functions. It doesn’t stop at savoury meals either, as they’ll be able to bake an oozing fudge brownie or a tangy lemon cheesecake for dessert.
The 7.5 litre capacity is the biggest in the range, so they can treat the whole family to a mouth-watering meal. And one thing’s for sure, you know who’s hosting Christmas dinner next year.
After a season of tasty treats and bubbling booze that leaves you as stuffed as the Christmas turkey, they’ll be thanking you for picking a multi-cooker with a healthy Air Fry option. Using little to no oil, wedges will be just as fluffy – and chicken just as crispy – as they would be in a deep fat fryer.
When the school run starts back up and there’s not enough time in the day to spend messing around in the kitchen, the slow cooking function is an absolute saviour. They’ll just need to pop all the ingredients into the pot, and leave it simmering throughout the day. And when the evening comes around, there will be a scrumptious meal waiting to be served.
Panasonic SD-ZB2502BXC Bread Maker with 27 programmes - Stainless Steel / Black
Ah, the smell of fresh bread in the morning is probably the best gift you could give anyone. With this bread maker, you can send the star-baker of your family a present they’ll go barmy for.
With 27 settings that include gluten-free, Italian, and Pizza, the baking doesn’t just stop at bread. From a fresh lemon drizzle cake to a rich gingerbread, this will help make use of all their Bake Off bingeing.
This special feature lets them create their very own preserves to go with their croissants and cakes. So, they really can bake all their treats from scratch.
Ideal for those with a sweet tooth, the clever dispenser adds chocolate chips, raisins and nuts into the dough, making sure everything’s all spread out evenly. This takes all the faff out of baking the perfect fruitcakes and Pain au Chocolats.
When they’re in a hurry, but need their carb fix, the Rapid Bake setting can bake a loaf in 2 hours. So, if they’re hosting last minute lunch plans with a friend, they can quickly whip up a fresh bake to impress.
Smeg 50's Retro KLF03WHUK Kettle - White
I think we’ve found the most British thing you could gift someone at the most wonderful time of year – a kettle. If you’ve noticed your nan’s sounds like it’s whistled its last tune, give her the upgrade she deserves - after all, you’re probably to blame with all the cuppas she’s made you over the years.
Taken straight from the 50’s, the stunning design will add a chic vibe to a kitchen. With a bold white body and silver accents, this will make a statement on any worktop.
The large capacity can boil enough water to brew up 6 or 7 drinks. Perfect for hosting winter catch-ups with friends, they can cosy up and spill the tea over a warm cup of coffee and shortbread cookies.
Inclusive to all the lefties of the world, the 360 degree swivel base makes it easily accessible for both hands. So, whether they choose to place it on the kitchen counter, or the bedside table, they’ll have no problem reaching for it on frosty mornings.
From that warming first sip of tea, to the hot Vimto before bed, this will pour quality drinks all day long. The limescale filter keeps the inside clean, so instead of wasting time scrubbing at it, they can relax with a drink instead.
Smeg 50's Retro TSF02WHUK 4 Slice Toaster - White
Pick up a toaster to make sure your friend’s kitchen is prepped for the feasts and hangovers that come with a (very) merry Christmas. Whether you’re grabbing this for someone who’s toast mad, or to pair it with the kettle, it’ll make a great gift either way.
Its classic 50’s design will really add some character to their kitchen. The silver accents on the lever and controls really pop on the white body, while the curved edges finish off the look.
With 6 toasting levels, this can cater for the whole family. So if they love a golden crumpet, but their partner prefers their toast very well done, they can change up the settings to suit them.
This special feature is the closest any of us will get to Christmas in New York this year. It perfectly toasts one side, giving just the right level of crunch, so they can enjoy a breakfast bagel at the start of their day, or a jammy bite to eat for supper.
Cleaning up is a breeze with the handy tray. It sits at the bottom of the appliance to catch all the crumbs, making them easy to bin when tidying up. This leaves more time in the evening to relax with (mistle)toast and wine.
Swan Nordic STP2091GRYN Kettle And Toaster Sets - Grey
Fluffy PJs aren’t the only matching set you should be gifting this year. Keeping everyone warm in the winter evenings and gloomy mornings, a kettle and toaster are the kitchen staple that should not be overlooked. So, swap out the ugly socks on your shopping list with a pair that’ll really be appreciated.
Transporting the kitchen to the heart of the Scandinavian hills, this set’s Nordic design will add a modern look to the room. With a minimalistic style, there’s no need to worry about them clashing with other appliances.
Thanks to this special feature, the kettle will take care of itself. If they accidentally boil the kettle without it having any water in, it’ll automatically cut out to prevent any damage. So, when they’re still half asleep before their coffee fix, this will have their back.
Ideal for grab-and-go mornings in the New Year, this model will toast four slices of bread at once. You can even put two slices in for longer than the other two. This is great if they like theirs golden brown while their other half prefers it charred, as the pair can brown their bread at the same time without any compromise.
Getting through a full loaf of bread before it goes mouldy can sometimes be a struggle. With the defrost function, they can stick the remaining slices in the freezer, and pop it on this mode when they’re in the mood for a turkey and stuffing toastie on Boxing Day.
