The Lakeland Christmas Gift Guide 2023

The holidays are just around the corner and it’s time to start planning Christmas dinner menus, family schedules and – everyone’s favourite – gifts! Whoever you’re buying for, you want to give them something that’ll make their eyes sparkle and hearts swell with joy.

We’ve put together our ultimate Lakeland Christmas gift guide to help you find the perfect present for every personality in your life. From the foodies and bakers to the home snugglers and budding gardeners.

Food Gifts for the Cooks and Bakers

You know the ones, the food aficionados. Their homecooked lunches and dinner party spreads always leave you salivating. A simple kitchen utensil set just won’t fill their stocking. Gifts for cooks like these should be high quality essentials, useful gadgets or delectable edible treats.

Whether they’re a baker or a chef, an air fryer would make a fantastic kitchen companion. With this present, they’ll be able to shake up the oil-soaked roast and cook light, crispy roast vegetables and meats in a fraction of the time. They can even sort out the dessert course! Cookies, crumples and baked fruits will turn out a dream.

A less hands-on chef might be excited to unwrap a new slow cooker. Left bubbling away, they’ll have delicious hot meals to come home to on cold winter days. That’s a gift that keeps on giving!

Or, if time is no object, then nothing beats the joy of making pasta from scratch. Pasta makers and ravioli cutters are food themed gifts that entertain as much as they feed. We’ve got lots of makers and gadgets for those with a sweet tooth too. In our gifts for bakers roundup, you’ll find dessert makers, cake kits and Christmas-themed utensils.

Don’t forgot the seasonal tradition of food and drink hampers. Filled to the brim with gourmet goodies, you’ll get full marks with these sweet, savoury and deliciously indulgent offerings. Or, if their pantry is already stocked for the holidays, then top up their cheese board with chutney sets and homemade jams that’ll las them all year long.

Small Surprises for Stocking Fillers

We’ve all been there: pulling a name out of a hat and drawing a blank on what to buy. Stocking fillers and Secret Santa gifts can be tricky, but the key is to find something that packs a punch without breaking the bank.

What represents festive cheer better than a warm mug of hot chocolate? For the friends who swear by their daily cocoa or coffee, consider gifting them specialized hot drink equipment – perhaps a high-end milk frother or set of glass coffee cups. Throw in some festive biscuits and you’ve got stocking fillers than are worth waking up for!

Some silly but equally indispensable gift ideas include our quirkier kitchen accessories. Who can resist a dinosaur-shaped cookie cutter? Or keep a straight face as they unwrap a banana guard? These items add an extra dash of fun to present giving. We’ve got lots of games and novelty gifts to keep them entertained.

Of course, if you want to stick to practical gifts for stockings, then these next ideas will work. Turn every breakfast into a small triumph with the brilliant in-pan egg timer and boiled egg topper. For the eco-conscious colleague who hasn’t yet given up their iced coffee, consider a telescopic travel straw. These gifts add a little joy while solving a small problem.

When it comes to the people closest to your heart, sometimes you want to go the extra mile to find that perfect gift. We’ve picked out some Christmas present ideas that show them just how special they are.

For the women in your life who appreciate a cosy evening just as much as big night out, what could be better than a heated blanket? It’s an embrace that’ll last all winter long. Pair it with a popcorn maker, and your gifts to her will elevate movie nights, series binges and post-lunch snacking.

Moving on to gifting men, would a freshly pulled pint in the comfort of their own home tick boxes? The DraftPour Beer Dispenser offers just this, perfect for anyone looking to build out their home bar. Or, for the men who are missing their gardens over the winter, the Véritable Indoor Garden is a brilliant way to enjoy a year-round ‘window box’ full of homegrown herbs.

We’ll let you in on a secret too, these presents are great for sharing. So, if you’re looking for gifts for couples, keep these options in the mix!

And let’s not forget presents for the little ones! Getting children excited about cooking will open up a holiday of fun and a lifetime of culinary adventure. Start them off with their very own apron and some irresistible kitchen activities. Since it’s the holiday season, a gingerbread house kit will see them create their own edible masterpiece.

There you have it – your one-stop guide to gift-giving this Christmas! With a variety of options for foodies, surprises that fit in a stocking, and personalised presents for those who matter the most, you’re all set to impress.
