Foodie gifts & treats
What Christmas isn’t complete with a little (or a lot) of indulgence when it comes to food and drink! Whether you’re a chocolate lover, a cheese fiend or just enjoy your favourite tipple more than once, Frome has it covered.
Keren’s Comfort Kitchen offers a whole host of Christmas naughtiness which can also be beautifully wrapped up in a hamper as a gift. Boozy sauces, chutneys, gingerbread…the list goes on. If you can’t wait until Christmas to get stuck in, try out her Christmas Cream Teas! Keren’s also offering Christmas meals for delivery on Christmas Eve (ready to be heated through on Christmas Day).
If beer is your Christmas drink of choice, why not go for something brewed locally. The Frome Brewing Company has a selection of ales in cans or mini kegs. And if you’re still struggling for gifts for those hard-to-by-for beer drinkers, then their ultimate Beer Lover’s Gift Box might be just what you’re looking for.
If you don’t drink alcohol, enjoying a Christmas beer doesn’t have to be boring. Long gone are the days when your only choice was a Heineken or a Becks Blue! Low Brews offer a great selection of non-alcoholic beer, cider and other soft drinks to get your taste buds tingling. They also sell taster boxes and gift vouchers.
While you’re waiting for your pizza, check out Eight Stony Street’s huge selection of wine. With all regions covered, there’s sure to be something to suit every wine lover, and if you’re struggling to choose, they offer bespoke wine package. You can also order selected wines online and as well as cocktails and mulled wine syrup as part of their takeaway service.
Whether it’s as a pick-me-up on Christmas evening or the much-needed wake-me-up for the morning after the night before. Why not treat yourself to a speciality coffee locally produced using a zero waste, carbon neutral system. Order via their Facebook page or select it as part of Fromie Gifts gift box (see more details below).
Patisserie May create bespoke biscuits, custom cakes and elegant patisserie for any occasion – especially Christmas! If you’re looking for some nibbles for family members with a sweet tooth, or even some stocking filler treats. Check out their Facebook page for some ideas.
If an ice-cold gin and tonic is what you need to kick-start your festive celebrations, then why not look to local brand, Still Sisters. Their range of gins are created using some locally sourced botanicals from family businesses and include lavender, rose & hibiscus flavours as well as a Christmas London Dry.
What Christmas would be complete without a cheese board?! Whether it’s a classic mature cheddar that you’re after or an eye-watering stilton, you need look no further than Cheap Street. You’ll find a wide range of other treats including chocolates, biscuits and crackers (of the biscuit variety!).
Supporting local couldn’t be easier than a visit to the Fromie Gifts website. They offer a wide range of gift boxes and you can either build your own from a selection of local producers including the aforementioned Still Sisters and Upcy Coffee.
Rum, vodka, gin, liqueurs….Friary Drinks have got them all and more. Perfect as gifts or a well-earned treat to celebrate the end of a pretty rubbish year!
