Hautelist: Christmas Gifts for Foodies

As we are officially one month away from Christmas, this week we will be making your present buying much easier! We’ve put together some tailored gift lists depending on whether your loved ones are real foodies, globetrotters or would just love something new to wear or use. Everything we have picked is basically what we would like to see for ourselves under the tree (we hope certain people are reading this!!!) so we have really scoured the web for you – if you like our taste in other things, then all you’ll need to do is click and buy and we hope your family and friends will like what you’ve chosen – let us know if they go down well!!

For today’s Christmas Hautelist, we’re focusing on the foodies… especially those who have been to every new restaurant in town and have kitted out their kitchens – there’s always a gadget they won’t have!
