DIY Cake Stand
You can send several of your favorite plates to Teacup Candles and they will transform them into a beautiful cake stand for you!
Made in Britain.
Available at Not On The High Street – £20

Vintage School House Cookie Jar
Every good kitchen should have a cookie jar. Cute, comical and vintage, if possible. I love this 1970s one from Babylon Sisters (Etsy) – $36.

Fair Trade Recycled Rice Bag Pot
These adorable pots can be used in a variety of ways in the kitchen but I think they look cute for planting your favourite herbs. Handmade in Cambodia, fair trade certified by AAC (The Artisans Association of Cambodia).

Recycled Glass Pitcher
recycled-glass-pitcherServe your filtered water or luscious iced teas in this lovely pitcher that is handmade in Spain.

Booja Booja Vegan Truffles
For a little chocolate decadence, try the hazelnut crunch flavour. They’re the perfect after dinner treat! Handmade in Norfolk (click link below for vegan ingredient list). Available in health food stores or online at sites such as Riverford – £4.99

Upcycled Apron
I had to include one of our aprons in this foodie gift guide. I know I’m biased but they really are lovely to wear and cook in. Each one is handmade in London using the best remnant fabrics.
Available at GreenLashesFashion (Etsy) – $25 (approx. £16)

good-housekeeping-the-cooks-yearSecond Hand Cookbooks
You can find oodles of good second hand books at Oxfam, either online or in-store. Why not gather a selection of rare and lesser known cookbooks for your gift and stick to a theme such as Italian, Vegetarian, Seasonal or Baking.
Good Housekeeping: The Cook’s Year – available at Oxfam (£3.99)



  1. Some ‘Booja Booja Truffles’ cookery school master-class would be a good idea as a gift for teenagers (especially girls) who have ‘active hands’ and ‘live attitude’ to their hobby 🙂 For instance – for my nephew.

  2. Never saw such modern and stylish recycled glass pitchers before 🙂
    One should definitely be a pro designer to create such.
