This gourmet gift contains all you need to mix up velvety espresso martinis at home: just the thing for those who like it shaken, not stirred

With Christmas fast approaching, I’m starting to think about present ideas – when you’ve got a family as big as I have, forward planning is crucial. Top of my list is this espresso martini gift set, new to our online selection of Christmas hampers and gifts. It contains the makings of gorgeous espresso martinis at home: smooth, crisp triple-distilled vodka, warming coffee liqueur, and single-origin Ecuadorian dark chocolate to grate on top. And for a final festive flourish, there’s a pot of edible glitter which gives your drink a fabulously Christmassy gold shimmer. That’s one gift down – just a few more to go.
