Food and drink gifts

San-Mai chef knife by Holly Loftus (pictured above)

Buying for someone who spent lockdown inhaling ‘MasterChef’? It doesn’t get much better than a hand-forged knife. Holly Loftus is a Deptford-based bladesmith making one-of-a-kind Damascus-steel numbers with UK-sourced timber handles. But chop chop: these sell out fast, so be sure to get your order in asap.

From £290, www.loftusknives.com
