We round out our top 5 Gifts picks for winter in our Winter Gift Guide. Get inspiration for that perfect gift for those cooler months.
Top of our winter list is the ultimate in winter adaptions. Taking our favourite summer preoccupation and literally warming it up. The secret of course to a fine mulled wine is all in the spices. A perfect mix of cinnamon, cardamom, star anise, cloves paired with a top NZ wine. Our favourite is the Pepper & Me spice blend. It’s super easy to use as it comes in a handy sachet which means you can use it again with your next bottle! In fact we love it so much have included in our new Winter Warmer – Mulled Wine Gift Box
One of natures super foods, honey is great all year round. Perfect in winter due to its containment of rich antioxidants for the blood. Pop a tablespoon in a glass of warm water or add it to your favourite warm drink. Perfect to calm an inflamed throat or simple to enjoy the natural sweet taste honey provides.
Like honey, chocolate is best enjoyed all year around but in winter there is something about some luxurious dark chocolate enjoyed by a fire. One of our favourite thing to do though is a little cube of chocolate inside a couple of biscuits with a toasted marshmallow for a little decadent s’more like treat!
Tea is great gift in winter. We are so lucky in NZ so have some of the world’s top tea suppliers. Recent trends have seen an exciting shift back to loose leaf tea. With it has come the revival of some beautiful new tea strainers and reusable tea bags. We love a loose leaf tea, especially a lovely citrus green and we have a great range available in our Make Time for Tea range of gifts.
Nothing warms the cockles of your heart like a beautiful smooth cocktail! We understand the thought of the work that goes into making just one can mean it’s just too hard! That’s why we have chosen to include cocktails from the J.M.R Cocktail Co range. They are small batched in NZ and are perfectly proportioned for one or two servings of 100ml cocktail. Premixed and ready to drink as is or add in your favourite mix and enjoy a couple. Enjoy an espresso, chocolate or gin martini or go old school and have yourself a Negroni, Old Fashioned or Manhatten. Looking for something to entertain a group then we have our Shaken not Stirred – 1L of the delightful Batched Espresso Martini mix ready to pour, just add the coffee beans!
Whatever the occasion we have something to help anyone chase away those winter blues. Looking for something more bespoke don’t hesitate to get in contact with us to chat about options.
