If you follow food bloggers like I do you’ll have seen plenty of Christmas Gift Guides for foodies coming out over the last few weeks. I am afraid I’m appallingly late at publishing mine (would you believe I still haven’t started my own Christmas shopping yet?!), but nonetheless, here are a few reasonably priced gifts I think would be perfect for foodies.
