Shopping For A Foodie? Check Out These Gourmet Treats From Marks & Spencer's Holiday Collection

Whenever the holiday season comes around, Marks & Spencer unveil their collection that happily makes M&S stand for "merry and seasonal. It’s almost become a Christmas tradition, the ready solution as shoppers rack their brains for the ideal Christmas gift. Whether sweet or savory, there’s something at M&S that will hit a home run. Their Christmas lines are excellent gourmet gifts that will always be appreciated. They’re smartly packaged, and there’s a diversity that’s been developed over the years. You get perennial favorites and there are new items constantly being brought out. 

 

 

For Christmas 2018, we especially liked their Golden Snowflake Christmas Cake, a matured all-butter fruit cake. And beyond the Classic Christmas Pudding, there’s also a variant, the Fruity Christmas Pudding.

 

 

When it comes to their cookies and biscuits, Christmas is definitely in the air with Iced Reindeer Biscuits, the Salted Caramel Shortbread, the Petticoat Tails Shortbread In Robin tin, and the Merry Percy-mas Biscuit Tin.

 

 

 

 

The Christmas chocolates include Salted Caramel Pinecones, and a solid Chocolate Christmas Tree. Brandy Snaps are back, and you have boxes that distinguish between Swiss and Belgian origin chocolates.

 

 

And if you're looking for gifts for those who don’t have a sweet tooth, the savory selection fits the bill. Puff Pastry Mince Pies, Stilton Handcooked Crisps (our potato chips), Goat Cheese and Rosemary Bites, and the Cheddar Cheese and Roasted Onion Bites.

 

 

 

There are so many choices, from sweet to savory, and things in between. Given that it’s such an established global brand, it’s easy to forget how M&S were one of the first lifestyle retail chains developed. But what’s good to note is how they haven’t rested on their laurels, but have constantly searched out for new offerings; and come Christmas-time, found ways to package their products in a festive manner.
