4. JAMMY GOODNESS FOR THE SOUL!

The best kind of gifts are the edible kind. Bhuira Jam is a personal favourite not just because their product is so delicious, but also because of the amazing story behind it all. With the abundance of stone fruit in the hills like cherry, peach, apricot and plums, this women-led and run brand creates preservative-free jams, marmalades and chutney. Behind every jar of jam is a very proud Himachali woman!

We recommend the jam set because there’s no such thing as too much jam.

We think books are such a personal gift! And for the friend or colleague who loves to cook as much as they love to read – we highly recommend buying them ‘The Flavour Equation’ by Nik Sharma. Culinary books are not just for chefs – and this one in particular is for home cooks and seasoned professionals both. The book serves as a cooking guide by diving deep into how understanding the functioning of basic pantry items can change your approach towards cooking and create deliciousness!
