Best for... the chocoholic

The ultimate in chocolaty naughtiness, The Sweet Reason Company (pictured above) will deliver a handmade selection of gourmet brownies to your door. Each box comes with tea-pigs teabags and sugar swizzle sticks so you can have a nice cuppa as you work out which flavour is your favourite. You can even make your own bespoke box and with a personalised label and message to your gift.

Best for... the coffee connoisseur

Pact Coffee buys coffee beans from farmers across the world. They then roast these beans in small batches in Hertfordshire and post their coffee within 7 days of roasting. Choose from a selection of unique blends, such as Finca La Joyeria, from Columbia, which has notes of poached pear and dark chocolate. You can also request that your beans are ground, depending on how your friend likes to brew their coffee.
