10 last-minute edible gifts for everyone on your list this Christmas

Trine Jensen-Burke

Only days to go now.

And if you still have people left on your list to buy for – how about going for a delicious, edible present?

There are so many delicious and innovative Irish food businesses to pick from right now, and making an effort to buy Irish and shop local will no doubt have a massive impact on many small businesses nationwide. Especially this year.

Here are 10 seriously delicious edible gift ideas we know we would be only delighted to unwrap come Christmas day:

1. Nobo Chocolate Bar Collection

Curated selection of four large Nobo chocolate bars in a special edition Christmas gift box, every plant-based foodie will be delighted to unwrap this treat come Christmas morning.

The box includes a Smooth and Creamy bar, a Salty Carmel bar, a Coconut bar and an Orange bar.


2. Sheen Falls Lodge Smoked Salmon

Lightly smoked in a traditional way in Sheen Falls Lodge’s own smokehouse, the exquisite, distinctive aroma unfolds when the side of salmon is cut into thin slices.

Perfect as a Christmas pressie, the salmon is presented in a beautiful presentation box handcrafted in Kenmare.


3. Nibbed Dark Chock Orange Melting Spoon

Indulgent dark hot chocolate spiked with organic oranges. Served up on a spoon, for your convenience.

Plunge into a cup of hot water or milk of choice (we love barista Oatly or Flahavans Oat Milks). Stir and wait patiently for melted satisfaction.

This is a rich cup of cacao pleasure with a little coconut sugar and homemade orange powder.


4. Irish Whiskey Marmalade

A deliciously zesty marmalade from Avoca laced with the finest Irish whiskey, this delectable preserve just cries out to be smothered on freshly baked bread.


5. Stillgarden Distillery Xmas Cake Gin

The festive season wouldn’t be complete without your Mam’s Christmas cake, right? Xmas Cake Gin is complete with festive spices of cinnamon, ginger and star anise and distilled using the traditional pot still method.


6. Lily O’Brien Crunchy Salted Almond Share Bag

Crunchy salted Almond pieces encased in Lily O’Brien’s signature creamy milk chocolate. An irresistible sweet and salty combination that leaves you wanting more. Naughty and nutty but equally nice.


7. Badger & Dodo Hot Chocolate

Got a chocoholic on your list this Christmas? This bespoke hot chocolate blend from Badger & Dodo coffee and Ó Conaill Chocolate might just be the perfect gift.


8. Nutshed Peanut Butter 1KG & Socks

For the peanut butter lover in your life! 1KG Peanut Butter Original or Crunchy Honey Roasted, our custom NutShed socks & a NutShed Christmas card illustrated by Irish illustrator Fuchsia MacAree.


9. Donnybrook Fair Mince Pies

What would Christmas be without a minced pie? And we argue Donnybrook Fair makes the best ones!

€6.95 for six

10. Olly’s Farm Dublin Mountains Heather Honey

100 percent Dublin heather honey collected by the bees when they are moved up into the Dublin Mountains in late summer.

Note: This honey won GOLD at the Blas Na hEireann Irish Food Awards in Dingle in September 2017.
