Stuck for what to buy for the foodie in your life? Try these ethical Christmas gift ideas for foodies, full of clever sustainable and eco-friendly ideas.

Shopping for Christmas gifts that are eco-friendly and/or ethical can be a bit tricky.  So to help out I’ve got a whole load of Christmas gift ideas coming up over the next few weeks for all ages, interests, and budgets that fall into the eco-friendly or ethical camp.  All items have been selected from UK-based retailers that pay tax in this country, so you won’t find any suggestions from Amazon or Starbucks or Play.com, Topshop, or anywhere like that.

First up are some eco-friendly or ethical Christmas gift ideas for food lovers.  I’ve distinguished which are eco-friendly by (EF) and which are ethical by (FT):
