Five unusual and unique gift ideas for any occasion

We all love to give and receive gifts, but finding inspiration is not always easy. We’ve done some of the thinking for you with our list of five unique gifts for (almost) any occasion.

Paella Pan

Making a Paella is a real art and it’s undoubtedly the ultimate Spanish social dish. Originally from Valencia, this famous recipe can be made for groups of all sizes. Seek a dish of between 40-50cm in diameter for average sized dinner parties and don’t forget to include a recipe like our Pack a Punch Paella.

Pasta Maker

There’s nothing quite like the taste of fresh pasta. And we all love pasta, don’t we? Average consumption is around 350,000 tonnes per year in the UK, so you probably can’t go wrong with this one. Even for gluten-free people, a pasta maker makes a handy gift - see our healthy recipe for Whole Grain Gluten-free Spaghetti.

Homemade Old-Fashioned Cookies

The smell of freshly baked cookies is irresistible, so why not bake some and give them as a gift? Try this recipe then add them to a greaseproof-paper lined gift box and tie with a bow. Perfect.

A Three Month Coffee Subscription

If you have coffee loving friends or workmates consider keeping them supplied with premium quality beans for three months or more. A great idea for a Christmas gift and a lovely thing to do. They’ll thank you every day with each brew. Try the Weanie Beans Three Month Plan.

Rhubarb Gin and Tonic

If you have friends, colleagues or family members that are partial to a cheeky G&T then why not treat them to the best, but with a twist? This really is a unique gift idea. Try this incredible small batch Rhubarb Gin from 55 Above and add this Bermondsey Tonic Water to round off this as-near-to-perfect present.
