If you're stuck for foodie gifts then look no further, here's what i'd like to find next to my Chanukah doughnuts...

Here are a few of the food or cooking-related goodies I already love or would happily receive this year. With 8 days of giving, you've still got time to buy them for the foodie in your life: 

Ion 8 water bottle:

These days no one walks around without at least drinking vessel - whether insulated coffee cup or water bottle. With pressure to drink those litres, mine is almost surgically attached. My former bessie bottle was the Joseph Dot, which told me how much i'd drunk - so long as I remembered to twist the top with every refill. I still love it, but my head has been turned a new bottle. 

It's pretty in pink; easy to hold and never (but never) leaks, due to the super safe lid. A scale on the side tells me how many ml's it holds and still looks clean and shiny. Best water bottle ever. £10.99 here

Copper stone frying pans:

I don't fry much, but when I do a need a good non-stick pan so I can use less oil. I wasn't expecting to like these pans as much as I did, but they are fantastic. Everything i've cooked in them hasn't touched them, from onions to omelettes. They even work on my induction hob. I just need somewhere to store them! The only con is the wood-look handle, which stops me being able to chuck them in the oven when something needs finishing off in there.   

Doughuts, doughnuts and more doughnuts: Carmelli's limited edition Madagascan dark chocolate and blood orange doughnut:

If you're going to eat a doughnut then it needs to be worth the calories. My absolute favourite was always the custard-filled doughnut from Patisserie ValeriI've not yet tried this, but it won the US competition
