There’s nothing worse than that sinking feeling on Christmas Eve when you realise you should have been more organised and got all of your shopping out of the way earlier. This year, why not get ahead of yourself and, with a little help from us, get everything done and dusted before December?

To avoid that last-minute panic, we’ve got some great gift ideas for you, which are bound to help you out when you’re shopping for any of your family or friends.

Gift suggestions for busy bees

If you want to make life easier for a keen cook, we’ve got some great time-saving kitchen appliances to help them cook up delicious meals for all of the family.

We’ve got two fantastic slow cookers – the Sear and Stew and Partition Pot, which are both very handy gadgets and good Christmas present ideas.

Why would you choose the Sear and Stew over other slow cookers? It allows you to brown and cook meat in the same pot, so rather than having to faff around and increase washing up, this slow cooker means you can keep all the moisture and delicious juices in one pot, making a far tastier dish. The slow cooker has three settings; low, medium and high, and it features a clear glass lid to keep an eye on food as it’s cooking.

Morphy’s Partition Pot Slow Cooker is another fantastic Xmas gift suggestion, especially for any family with a fussy eater. The handy kitchen gadget allows for very versatile cooking, as it’s possible to cook two separate dishes at once. Anyone cooking a curry in their slow cooker can add varying degrees of spice levels to suit different tastes, perfect for every family. It boasts a 6l capacity, which is big enough to feed plenty of hungry mouths, making it a great Christmas gift.


Our Soup Maker is another clever kitchen appliance which will reduce time spent prepping in the kitchen. This is the ideal gift for anyone who likes to whip up tasty soups, but doesn’t always have much time to do so. It’s really quick and easy to make homemade soup in this stylish kitchen appliance. Select from the smooth or chunky settings to whiz up a delicious, nutritious soup which is perfect for all of the family to enjoy.

Gift ideas for foodies

If you know someone who loves to bake, they’re bound to be over the moon with the Christmas gift of a breadmaker.

Our super-sleek White Premium Plus Breadmaker is the perfect addition to any foodie’s kitchen. The appliance features a whopping 19 different programmes, so you can make anything from a basic loaf to cakes and even jam.

It’s possible to make three different loaf sizes – 1lb, 1.5lb or 2lb – meaning it’s perfect for everyone from those living alone to those with a giant family to feed. There’s a 12-hour delay timer, ideal for overnight baking, and there’s a choice of five crust settings, so there’s a darkness to suit everyone’s tastes. This is the ultimate present for anyone who loves waking up to the smell of a freshly baked loaf.

Gift suggestions for caffeine addicts

Why not impress your coffee-mad friends with this fantastic Elipta Espresso Automatic Coffee Maker for Christmas? It comes in a stylish brushed stainless steel finish and delivers delicious mugs of coffee at the touch of a button. The swish appliance boasts programmable memory function, meaning espressos can be made exactly how you like it, quickly and easily. Plus, it features a steam wand, ideal for making a frothy top for a latte or cappuccino. There’s even a cup warming function, so the coffee’s always going be steaming hot for everyone to enjoy.

So there you have it; some great Christmas gift ideas which are available right here on the Morphy Richards website. Get organised this year and start shopping for those Xmas presents now.
