Today I’m sharing with you my adult Christmas gift ideas. You can check out my kids Christmas gift guide here. Adults can be tricky to buy for. I always find it hard to buy a gift for my husband. It’s hard to buy for my brother and my sister, well as she lives in Canada I have to find her something small that she can take home.
So hopefully these few ideas here in this guide will give you a few ideas to find the perfect gift for a loved one.
Kicking off my adults Christmas gift guide I have this amazing homebrew kit from Home brewtique. Its a great way to start learning how to brew your own beer at home. Everything you need is included in this kit right down to your own personalised beer bottle labels, if you opted for that!
They have just opened their Christmas pre-order shop to help you get ahead of the busy festive season.
Their all-grain small batch home-brewing kits come beautifully packaged and make the perfect gift for Christmas, allowing any beer-lover or creative cook to brew their own beers just like a brewery – but in much smaller batch sizes and from the comfort of their own home.
Home-brewing is a great hobby for anyone who loves beer or just spending time in the kitchen, and these kits are unique because:
- They allow you to make beer from scratch using all natural, raw ingredients rather than a pre-mix
- The equipment is lightweight and attractive, so you can brew in any size kitchen
- Easy-to-follow recipes and customisable options make it a good fit for the novice to expert
The Christmas Gift Kit (£87) provides the basic brewing equipment needed and the option for a recipe voucher if you’re not sure which recipe to choose. Includes the option to personalise the beer bottle labels for a truly unique gift.
Flowers from Appleyard
A special bunch of flowers are always appreciated. This gorgeous bunch from Appleyard is called Festive Punch. They have fragrant lilies and beautiful roses included. I do love the added touch of some silver foliage. Makes them much more Christmassy.
