The BEST luxury gift ideas for any occasion
4 luxury gifts ideas from Whittard of Chelsea
Whittard first started life as a small tea shop in London way back in 1886 by merchant Walter Whittard. Since then, it has grown on a massive scale yet has still maintained Walter’s ethos of buying high quality and responsibly sourced teas and coffees.
I absolutely love Whittard and really enjoy their ever changing range of teas, hot chocolates and coffees that satisfy all my hot beverage needs throughout the year. They also have a fabulous range of gift sets that are perfect for all occasions and are guaranteed to put smiles on the faces of the special people in your life.
Here are my top 4 gift ideas from Whittard of Chelsea:
1. Coffees of the World Gift Set
Whether you enjoy it first thing in the morning to kick start your day, throughout the afternoon to keep you going during those back to back meetings, or when you come home in the evening so you can put your feet up and enjoy, coffee is a fundamental part of everyday lives so it’s essential to have a selection to suit your every mood.
The Whittard Coffees of the World Gift Set is perfect for every coffee lover and includes a fabulous range of single origin coffees from all over the world including India, South America, Africa and Indonesia. The nine individually boxed coffees range from dark to light roasts and various flavour profiles from rich chocolate to aromatic citrus and honey-sweet.
I especially love the Monsoon Malabar dark roast which is perfect for my morning espresso. The packaging is also beautiful with a variety of colourful animals on each packaging created by the extremely talented illustrator Persephone Coelho.
2. Cocoa Creations Hot Chocolate Gift Set
With the cold and wet weather we have throughout the year in the United Kingdom, warming hot chocolate is a must all year round! Luckily, Whittard have a decadent selection of six luxury hot chocolates that will satisfy all cravings.
The selection includes their signature Luxury Hot Chocolate and Luxury White Hot Chocolate as well as Salted Caramel, Orange, Rocky Road, and my favourite, Mint. Each flavour is rich and silky smooth and guaranteed to keep you warm and fuzzy whatever the weather outside.
3. Limited Edition Summer Teas Mini Caddy Trio Gift Set
Whittard have just launched their range of limited edition summer teas and have created a gorgeous mini caddy trio gift set that are all vibrant and colourful and housed in a beautiful gift box.
The delicious teas are Peach Bellini - fruity passionfruit, apricot and sweet peach on a base of sencha green tea, Limoncello - a luscious blend of lemongrass with zingy lemon peel, apple and sweet blackberry leaves, and Tropical Punch - a full-bodied blend of green tea with juicy mango, apple and beetroot coated in Japanese matcha.
I absolutely love all these teas and they all smell and taste like summer. They taste great as a hot beverage but for an extra splash of summer they are perfect chilled over ice.
4. Afternoon Tea at Whittard of Chelsea Tea Bar
As well as providing beautiful luxury gift sets to take home, Whittard also have a gorgeous Tea Bar located in Covent Garden where they offer a variety of Afternoon Tea choices that you can enjoy in store!
They have over 100 loose leaf teas, coffee and hot chocolates to choose from to go with their all-day afternoon tea. As expected the Afternoon Tea includes sandwiches, scones and divine cakes! Spending a luxurious afternoon enjoying these delights is another perfect gift idea!
So those are my four perfect Whittard gift ideas that are perfect for an occasion. Whether it’s tea, coffee or hot chocolate, these are three gifts guaranteed to put you into a lucky someone’s good books.
