Great gifts for foodies and techies

By Sarah Edwards at

Father’s Day is this weekend and if you are struggling for inspiration, we have put together a quick gift guide to give you some ideas.
Local independent shops have great gift ranges so as well as taking the easy option and shopping online, make sure you check out high streets in Bicester, Banbury, Woodstock, Kidlington and Chipping Norton- and don’t forget all the fabulous pubs, restaurants and cafes that are scattered across Oxfordshire as well!

For the dads that consider themselves a bit of a foodie, the Kalamata Premium Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil gift set makes the perfect present this Father’s Day. The oil makes for a unique and personal gift, whether they love cooking for the family or if they are looking for the next perfect appetiser to pair with their evening tipple.

The oil is available to buy in two variants; as an Individual 500ml bottle, or in a wooden presentation box, making it ideal for gifting. The stunning wine-style bottle design lends itself to being on display and would sit well in any discerning food lover’s kitchen.

Individual 500ml bottle, £25
500ml Bottle in Presentation box, £40
Available to buy from www.kalamatapremiumoliveoil.com
