Isle of Wight Distillery: Mermaid Gin – £39.50
I am in love with this small batch gin. It’s more expensive than your bog standard gin but justifiably so as it is very lovingly made by a small distillery on the Isle of Wight.

Treat someone to a gluten free baking course in London, for a gift that will keep on giving. The recipient will learn how to make sponge cake filled with lemon curd and cream; hazelnut and carrot cake with chocolate ganache topping; pineapple upside down cake and many other mouth-watering desserts. I have taken this course and it was brilliant, but please note it is not a dedicated gluten free kitchen environment as they run other courses in the same premises.
Not all cookery classes happen in London, as shown by this bakery class for two run at the Seasoned Cookery School in rural Derbyshire. This day course will see you learning how to make a white load of bread, Jaffa cakes and savoury choux buns.
