I am looking for something a bit unusual but also delicious for a foodie friend. He has savoury tastes rather than sweet. I am completely stuck for ideas. What foodie present would you most like to receive (by post)?

Where are you located?

France, but am sending to London.

If it was me I would relish being sent a little jar of the finest saffron, foie gras or maybe some gorgeous truffle in oil. All ridiculously expensive & indulgent but fabulous for a genuine foodie.

Have a look at hampers. Loads of different styles/contents/sizes. Most of the major stores do them and you can control price.

Thanks. He is a genuine foodie, but I am looking for something he doesn't know about as he's likely to have got himself everything he fancies. Alternatively, something for his (new) BBQ. Maybe some of this BBQ rub?

Fortnum and Mason. Yum. Lots of choice.

I like Luigis' mail order - lovely (mainly Italian) goodies, good range to choose from and a range of prices. Nice cheeses, salamis, truffles, oils etc.

Or if you want something more unusual how about some bits from Japanese Kitchen? Interesting things that you can't get in normal supermarkets.

Thanks, these all look great.
