Great Food Gifts For Families Under £50

Christmas is almost upon us and if you're looking for inspiration on some brilliant food gifts that are perfect for families - look no further!

I've put together this gift guide full of amazing and delicious food gifts that are perfect for all members of the family to enjoy (of course only adults will be enjoying the alcohol!) and which are all available for under £50!

Traditional Wicker Christmas Hamper (£39.99)
If you're looking for a traditional yet affordable Christmas hamper to gift a family with then this Traditional Wicker Christmas Hamper from The Present Finder is the one. Presented in a beautiful wicker basket complete with festive red lining, this hamper is packed full of goodies, with something that each member of the family can enjoy.

This hamper contains 8 festive treats. For mum and dad there's a bottle of Shiraz for enjoying a little tipple once the kids have gone to bed. For all the family to enjoy together there's 3 Taste traditional mince pies, Farmhouse Recency cranberry crumble biscuits, cheddar biscuits, Delafaille assorted pralines, Stas milk chocolate bauble tree decoration, Eternal Grocer chocolate coated nuts and raisins and a Christmas preserve.

This is a perfect affordable and beautifully displayed hamper and would make a great gift for a family this Christmas.

Savoury Bouquets

If your gift recipient prefers savoury over sweet, then has some amazing tasting bacon rose bouquets and beef jerky rose and flower bouquets that are bound to go down a treat! 

The bacon rose bouquets come presented in a box and are flavoured with dark chocolate. They come in a perfect dozen and are a unique treat to gift a foodie family with.

Cadbury Christmas Hamper (£30)
It wouldn't be Christmas without a Cadbury's treat - or two! This hamper is affordable and packed full of treats to keep the whole family happy.

With 2 large tubs - one with the Christmas staple that is Cadbury's Roses and one with Cadbury's Heroes, there's lots of chocolate to share. The hamper also contains a Freddo selection box to keep the kids happy, as well as three large cartons of Maynard Bassetts Wine Gums (my favourites) and Jelly Babies and Cadbury Eclairs.

This is a lovely hamper and one that's great for chocolate and jelly lovers - of which I am both! This is just one of the fabulous hampers Cadbury Gifts Direct has available. They have hampers and gifts available for all budgets and they make for wonderful Christmas gifts.

Green & Black's Organic Chocolate Advent Calendar (£12.99)
If you want to gift a family - or even a member of your own family, with something sweet before Christmas, then an advent calendar is a great choice.

This Green & Black's Organic Chocolate Advent Calendar is a great choice for those who like chocolate but prefer the dark stuff (like my partner and his father). With flavours of butterscotch and ginger, this advent calender is sure to be a real treat for chocolate lovers.

Green & Black's have lots of great Christmas gift ideas to suit all budgets too.

Biscuiteers The Snowman Biscuit Tin (£38)
This is the most gorgeous food gift to gift a family with young children and fans of Christmas class The Snowman and The Snowdog. This beautifully decorated tin contains 9 hand-iced biscuits in all spice flavour that are perfect for tucking into on Christmas Eve whilst watching The Snowman - it's a tradition in our house.

These biscuits are securely package to keep them safe in the post and can be sent to your receipents directly if you prefer that option - great for gifting someone who may not live close by to you. I was once gifted some Biscuiteers biscuits and they were delicious. I also kept the tin as it was so lovely so they really do make for a great gift!

 Guylian Praline Sea Shells (£5)
If you're looking for a delicious chocolate treat to gift a family with this Christmas then you can't go wrong with Guylian Praline Sea Shells. These are a firm favourite in our house and at just £5 for a box of 22 chocolates, they make for a cost-friendly gift too for all to enjoy.

These are available in a variety of different box sizes, so if you want to gift a larger box the option is available, but for how delicious they are, they still make for an affordable gift - even when gifting a larger box.

Cadbury's Christmas Treasure Box (£10)
This is a lovely little gift for chocolate lovers and at just £10, it's a great affordable gift too. This Christmas treasure box is filled with some of Cadbury's delicious seasonal treats such as Mini Snow Balls and Dairy Milk Winter Wonderland edition, as well as some fan favourites such as Wispa Gold and Twirl. This really is a treasure box for any sweet tooth!

Thorntons Cheeky Elf and Snowy Bear (£8)
How adorable are these Cheeky Elf and Snowy Bear chocolate figures from Thorntons? If you're wanting to gift a family with children a delicious treat then these would make the perfect yummy gift!

The Cheeky Elf is made from delicious milk chocolate and is finished with white and dark chocolate as well as red coloured decoration. The Snowy Bear is made from hollow white chocolate and green decoration on his scarf. There's also a super cute reindeer as part of this range too!

Hopefully this post has given you some yummy gift inspiration for this Christmas.
