The Breadonbutter 2015 LAST-MINUTE Gift List

This year, it’s all about last-minute. We’ve been moving since the beginning of the month so you can imagine the mess we’re living in. I am thankful for every bit of it, but I’ve been neglecting Christmas planning – which is wrong for someone who drinks in an ‘I Heart Christmas’ mug all year long. It’s the last week before Christmas. The day is fast approaching and we’re expecting the first batch of family members this week already! I better get moving with their gifts as they come bearing presents from the land of beautiful things 😉 I thought I would write my list of last-minute gift ideas for those of you who, like me, have had no time to shop yet.

1) Polygel cookie cutters or stamps, with an adorable mold of the shape you prefer.

On the top of my list, a gift for home bakers! The best thing about this is that you can choose and order everything online. Just head to their website and make your selection.

2) A board game.

Nights in are the new Saturday night fever. Card games and board games are the first choice for a Saturday night in winter, hand in hand with great cheese of course. A board game like the all-new Monopoly or Risk is perfect for the cool geek in your family.

3) Double wall cups – MG supplies.

For the family members or friends who have just moved in, those double-wall glasses are perfect to drink their hot tea or espresso in style.

4) H&M Home objects.

Also for those who have just moved in – excuse the bias – head to H&M Home. Pure bliss.

5) A Lonely Planet book collection.

This is for the hard-core travellers. Depending on your budget, make a selection of Lonely Planet books and wrap them into one gift to inspire their new traveling year.

6) Jamie Oliver Cookbook series.

This is for the crazy Jamie fan (hint, hint). You know those people, so enough said.

7) Tea collection – Kusmi Tea.

For your mother who loves tea and hosts afternoons at her house, a beautiful and colorful Kusmi Tea selection is the best choice.

8) Ye!! Speaker.

That’s for the cool young brother whose world is music. He can take it wherever he goes.

9) A dinner with Bibayti.

Christmas time is followed by some special events. Be it valentine’s or a capricorn’s birthday, there’s nothing better than inviting them for dinner at their own home.

10) KitchenAid toaster.

Many of us wake up just for breakfast. This toaster would make anyone think twice about hitting that snooze button.

11) Lamps for the bedroom or office – Decalé.

That’s for the uncle who works from home. The choice of lamps at Decalé is as confusing as beautiful.

12) A wonder.full box.

The good thing about this gift is that there’s a box for every personality. Head to their website to browse your choices.

11 Perfect Food Lovers Christmas Gifts

Before we start off with awesome food lovers Christmas gifts ideas, I’d like to say that on this first of December, we should be happy and grateful more than ever. Beyond gifts, food and parties, December is a month of feeling thankful and appreciating what we have. It’s the month to let go of all the effort we’ve been doing throughout the year and enjoy the little things. It’s that time where you gather with family and friends,  help others a bit more and feel warm inside and out.

For food lovers, this time of year is pure excitement. We get to eat without feeling guilty, we get to cook for our loved ones, we get to make warm and fuzzy drinks, and we get to get ourselves the most wonderful cooking tools there are!

For those of you who are looking for inspiration for food lovers Christmas gifts, I’ve compiled a list of 11 very cool things to surprise them with. All price ranges and preferences are in there of course.

Take a look! I hope it inspires you 🙂
