This Christmas treat your loved ones to the beautifully curated and thoughtfully packaged modern foodie gift boxes from On The Table. 

Each is a joy-giving curation of the very best produce from independent suppliers across the UK.  Forget traditional gift delivery brands and the same old seasonal staples, with On The Table you can impress family and friends with delicious gifts that are tasteful and most of all, thoughtful.

The company was dreamt up by Founder and Food Entrepreneur, Lucy Mee, who explains: “On The Table is a chic and elevated foodie gift box concept which champions the most exciting small batch producers and brands from around the UK. Nothing tacky, no wasteful, boring ‘filler’ items. We’re here to make gifting sexy again and if we can do that by supporting independent food and drink producers who are doing things the right way, then it’s a win-win for everyone this Christmas.”

Here is Lucy’s pick for the festive season:

British Cheese and Fancy Fizz

Perfect for the cheese lover in your life, this trio of British, small batch cheeses has been paired with Amie’s Sparkling Cremant De Limoux to create a gift fit for any festive celebration. Discover Bix organic soft cheese, which is handmade in small batches in Henley at the Nettlebed Creamery; Lincolnshire poacher, a rich savoury cheese with a creamy texture made near Newcastle and Keens Cheddar, made in Somerset. All are paired with fire flame chilli jam, handmade at the Single Variety Co. Completing the box is Harth Chocolate, which hails from a female owned micro bakery in Somerset. 

Oatnog and Nibbly Bits

A real hug of a hamper. It features the chicest bottle of small-batch Oatnog ever seen. It’s creamy, decadent and dairy-free – think winter spices, buttery rum and a rich, velvety finish. Move over Eggnog – this is the only nog worth sipping this festive season! It comes paired with two seasonal specials from Pump Street Bakery, their iconic Cookie Chip bar with tasting notes of crisp caramelised cookie, butter and rounded cocoa, plus the Jolly Father Christmas Figure which is hand-poured from molten single origin craft chocolate and made by Pump Street in Suffolk. A packet of ethically grown honey and cinnamon cashews by Food and Forest, completes the nibbles.

Aperitivo Hour

Making a gorgeous gift for Christmas party hosts and fans of top-notch tipples, this box is sure to make your Aperitivo hour spicier and your gifting game hotter. It showcases the Blacklines Negroni, a short, strong and timeless classic featuring East London Gin, Campari and Spanish Sweet Vermouth, that comes complete in a strikingly illustrated bottle. It is paired with Perello Olives, a Spanish classic grown in Seville. 

Plant Based Cheese and Saucy Set

Really living up to its name, this fully plant based hamper is the sauciest of pressies to receive. It features the world’s best plant based cheese (Macadamia and Cashew) by Hackney based producers, Nettle. It is served up with Peanut Salsa from Saucy and gluten-free Rosemary and Olive Oil Flatbreads from Breakin Bread. All are perfectly paired with the non-alcoholic aperitif, Botivo, which features a delicious fusion of bittersweet, herbal and citrus botanicals balanced out with wildflower honey. 

Sending Love

This one goes out to all the lovers in the room. Lovers of rosé, that is! This gift box features a bottle of organic Rosé of the moment, Amie, plus British beeswax candles and a box of handmade Harth Truffles from Somerset.  It’s a romantic gift idea, as well as a gift of creating a moment. Dim the lights, burn the candles and pour a glass. Ding ding, festive date night inspiration. Celebrate friendship, romance and the love of Rosé with this gift box delivery. 

Nibbly Bits for Christmas

This set is perfect for sending to loved ones who like to crack open the wine and sit in front of the Christmas fire with a board full of the most delicious snacks. It boasts a bottle of Amie Carignan Red, a fruity and deep red that’s perfect for the winter months, Torres truffle crisps, if you know, you know, and Heartful Masala Cashews and Almonds which are coated in Indian spices. To finish, tuck into the small batch, ethical Harth Chocolate, that comes wrapped in the most aesthetically-pleasing keepsake fabric. 

Big Celebration Box

If you’re really out to impress, this one really does tick the ‘Big Celebration’ Box! Think Nibbly bits for snacking, Sparkling for celebrating and small batch chocolate for afters. You’ll also discover the best in British cheese and charcuterie, thanks to the Cobble Lane British Mixed Charcuterie Selection featuring Bresola, Coppa and Fennel Seed Salami, plus Lincolnshire Poacher and Bix Organic Soft Cheese. Finishing touches include crisp Mor Poppy Seed Crackers, juicy Perello Olives and Torres Truffle Crisps.
