Let's be honest, we all love food. Delicious food in pretty packaging is just absolutely irresistible, it can make a perfect present or a treat for yourself, and whether you want savoury preserves, chutneys and dips or sweet jam, tasty biscuits and melt-in-the-mouth chocolate. Over the past few months we've found some new brands that will excite any foodie, with ridiculously tasty products presented in gorgeous packaging.


First off let's talk about Cartwright & Butler, a company that began selling homemade jam in 1981 from a craft gallery in a small coastal town in Yorkshire. The Cartwright & Butler range makes me think of a quaint country kitchen, with pastel packaging including reusable biscuit tins and recyclable cardboard.

Everything they produce has an air of homemade, and most of the range is made in the UK, with certain products made abroad by artisan producers to capture an authentic flavour. Along with traditional biscuits made with real butter, Cartwright & Butler produce cheese flavoured biscuits and preserves prepared in Kilner style jars you can use over and over again. They even produce beautiful hampers that will make an absolutely great gift for your loved ones, filled with tea, coffee, sweet biscuits, savoury biscuits, jams and chutneys presented in beautiful painted baskets.
