9 foodie gift ideas this Christmas

It’s that time of the year…people are rushing about to get things checked-off their Christmas shopping lists. And others are stressing over what to get people so that they can create a list to begin with! To top it all, malls in Dubai are so big and have so many options that they’re bound to confuse you in regards to what to get for the people you love (or maybe don’t really love, making it even harder to get this done). While I for one love Christmas carols, four hours in a mall with every shop playing different versions of the same carols while you’re trying to get your shopping done, can make you want to run right into the very decked out Christmas tree in the mall and knock it over in frustration very testy.

Given tis’ the season to be jolly, we at She Said have picked out some food-esque gift ideas to help ease away some of the stress! And best of all, mostly everything is available in Dubai and we’ve included links below so you know exactly where you’re going.
