Have you started thinking about Christmas? Maybe you should. I know it feels like it’s too early to start thinking of anything related to Christmas – presents, cards, advent calendars and even stocking fillers… but this might be the best time to start getting prepared for the festive season. After all, the last thing you want is to leave everything to the very last second and be rushing around looking at empty shelves because others got there before you.
It’s not every day that I confess to being a foodie. I love going to different restaurants and trying new things that I’ve never tried. I love having food experiences of strange food pairings. I’m a foodie, unfortunately or fortunately (depending on how you look at it!). I also have many friends that love good food – is there someone who doesn’t?
So, in the spirit of Christmas and finding the perfect foodie gift for those around me who share a passion for food, I’ve partnered up with Springvale Foods, wholesale fine foods. Springvale Foods are a family-run wholesale food business that specialises in fine foods and artisan goodies. So, whether you want some foodie stocking fillers or are looking for a foodie gift, you will find everything you need at Springvale Foods. I might treat myself too!
I think it’s important to buy from local businesses and Springvale Foods offers the best of both worlds – they are a UK-based company that sources delicious products from innovative English brands but also from around the world. With thousands of products and a wide range of gluten-free and vegan products, there is something for anyone.
Plus, buying bulk might be a favourite of mine. I enjoy always having the foods I love at hand and for Christmas gifts, buying bulk means that I can tackle a variety of gifts for different people at the same time. As this article on Zero Waste Family says, “Buying in bulk cuts down on product packaging and transportation costs, reduces waste, and is usually cheaper. So, it is cost-effective and good for the environment.”
The perfect gift for all the chefs-to-be of the family. This festive bottle comes will all the dry ingredients you need to bake delicious winter wonder cakes. These come with an easy-to-follow recipe that will be perfect for the little ones to make.
