Organising Christmas is no easy task, so treat your host to something really special (it will make a change from a poinsettia plant!).
They’ve done all the catering, now let someone else cook for them. And who better than world-class chef Michael Caines and his team at Lympstone Manor in Exmouth. A gift voucher for a tasting menu for two starts at £255.
Offer to help with the drying up with these bright and beautiful hand screen-printed tea towels, designed by artist Ruth Broadway. Available through the Devon Guild of Craftsmen in Bovey Tracey, at £11 each.
Resist the temptation to try these delicious delights en route to your host. Cullompton-based Willie’s Cacao produces some of the best chocolate around. Willie’s Cacao Flavours of the World Bars: £1.99, Willie’s Cacao Truffles (35g box): £5.49, and Willie’s Cacao Truffles (110g box): £10.99.
