Find the perfect gift for foodies, from a smorgasbord of smoked treats to locally made venison bresaola and everything you need for the ultimate cheese and wine evening

Sussex Gourmand Sussex Gastrobox, £215

This collection celebrates the Sussex countryside and is the perfect gift for someone you really want to spoil this Christmas. It includes three canape kits (each making up to 24 nibbles) showcasing their highly acclaimed beef and venison bresaola, plus smoked salmon.

That’s complemented by a trio of wines from Ridgeview and Bolney Estate, plus six award-winning Sussex cheese and chocolate truffles from Montezuma’s.

This small batch producer has limited availability, so encourages customers to pre-order early.

They dispatch by overnight courier nationwide up to 23 December and deliver within a 10-mile radius of Brighton and Hove free of charge, up to Christmas Eve.
