 #Ad – I have been gifted some products in this gift guide

Christmas is 2 weeks away and many of us have started our Christmas shopping already. However, if you are not quite finished or you are just looking to get a few additional gifts, here are some suggestions for some last-minute gifts.

Gifts for foodies – 

Mermaid Salt Vodka – RRP £40.00

If you are looking for a drink for an adult recipient, this may be the perfect gift for you. This is no ordinary vodka, they describe the flavour to be “like the subtle kiss of a mermaid”.

Distilled at their Isle of Wight Distillery, it is infused with sea salt that is locally sourced, which enhances its flavour. This is perfect on its own or even in cocktails, making it the perfect Christmas gift. It is also the prettiest bottle I think I have ever seen.

Bobby’s Schiedam Dry Gin – RRP £37.99

If your recipient is more of a gin drinker than a vodka drinker, this may be the perfect gift for you. The market for gin flavours has exploded this year with gin becoming more and more popular but I haven’t seen any like this one. This gin combines a pice mix that includes clove and cinnamon, making it the perfect Christmas tipple, as it combines Holland and Indonesian flavours to make a drink described as Dutch courage mixed with Indonesian spirit.
