3. Luxury Hot Chocolate Gift Box

There’s no denying that chocolate is synonymous with Christmas. Whether you’re looking for stocking fillers, small indulgences or grand gestures of love, chocolates are a timeless gift that never goes out of style.  The Luxury Hot Chocolate Gift Box is a stylish Christmas gift, containing delicious artisan chocolate and an ingenious Hot Chocolate Shaker - the secret to making the smoothest, most velvety hot chocolate. Shaking creates the right amount of friction to perfectly bind chocolate to warm milk or water which can’t be achieved with stirring alone. By shaking a hot liquid in an airtight container, the air inside the container heats and expands, causing a hot chocolate taste explosion. This ingenious, can’t-live-without hot chocolate shaker has a lid that pops to accommodate the increased pressure as the air expands. A chic gift box to give, it also contains two bags of artisan chocolates, Milk Chocolate Drops and Dark Chocolate Orange, for the very best tasting hot chocolate.

4. MEATER+ Smart Meat Thermometer 

For a thoughtful, practical present, look no further than the Meater+ Smart Meat Thermometer. This wireless, smart thermometer takes the guesswork out of cooking, ensuring that every gammon, turkey or steak comes out flawlessly - every time. The Meater+ connects to your smart device via Bluetooth, allowing you to monitor the cooking progress remotely. Its advanced sensors provide real-time temperature data.
