The ATF Christmas Gift Guide Part 3 - Edibles & Drinkables

In part three of our ATF Christmas gift guide, we're looking at the best edible and drinkable gifts, because how better to say it (anything) than with food! Or wine. Or cocktails. Or stuff to eat them off and drink them out of. Here are our top picks for the year that's in it...


A Dolce Sicily Panettone

Italian café Dolce Sicily are selling not one, not two, but seven different types of panettone this Christmas, from pistachio to chocolate, fruits of the forest to one that's supposed to resemble a volcano. Supermarket panettones might tick the box, but these are the ones to buy for someone special.

Toonsbridge Cheese & Cracker Hamper

Toonsbridge has plenty of different hamper options this season, but we love the cheese and cracker hamper - very affordable at €32, and who doesn’t love cheese?! The perfect hostess gift for any get-togethers, it comes with three cheeses, crackers and some chutney, and if that doesn't float your boat you can see their full selection of hampers here.

Lilliput Christmas Hampers

Our favourite food-filled treasure trove never disappoints at Christmas time, full to the brim of pantry favourites for your loved ones (and yourself). Lilliput Stores are running their annual Hamper Market for two weekends this December so you can potter down and pick up your favourites to create your own, or if you prefer them to do the work for you there are plenty of pre-selected hampers at varying price points available on their website.

Hen's Teeth Hampers

You can always count on Hen's Teeth to get you out of a last minute gift jam, they have all the cool stuff, and Christmas is no different. They have three hampers from €50 - €125, or you can make up your own, but we love the €50 'Ah you're very good' option, with Hey Yum gummies, a bottle of Craft Cocktails, Ocelot chocolate, Piccolo contemporary garden seeds, and a Clean Slate candle. They'll even let you swap out items for something else, which is very sound. Buy them here.
