food of the month clubs in UK

shaynarenz Nov 20, 2011 08:10 PM

I want to give my boyfriend who lives near London some sort of food or wine of the month club membership. I'm from the US where there are a lot of these options but none that ship Internationally. Does anyone know of anything like this in the UK or one in the US that will ship overseas?

    neal's yard dairy do one for cheese ( c£200pa for a box of 4 cheeses every quarter!) and hotel chocolat also does them (for choc, not cheese, obviously!).

    for wine, laithwaites do a range of "wine plans" that might be suitable

      Oh chocolate would be good. Thank you! I know this sounds odd but you don't know of anyone that does an "ice cream" of the month type club do you?

        Scoop (www.scoopgelato.com) and Gelupo (gelupogelateria.com) both do online ordering - you could either set him up with an online account and some credit, or call/email them and see if they'd deliver a different flavour every month. Or Laverstoke Park do their buffalo milk icecream online - odd, but worth trying! http://www.laverstokepark.co.uk/Ice-C...

        Saw this & the replies & you got me wanting a monthly meat box! Had a quick Google & these people seem very reasonable! Most monthly medium meat boxes are around the £80 mark, or so Ive seen, but these are a very reasonable £50 with free UK mainland delivery! & you can choose your date for delivery. I think I might give them a go! http://www.blackface.co.uk/products_d...

        For wine you could join http://www.nakedwines.com/ - you get to put money in every month and build up credit and cashback, as well as just standard purchases. They constantly do nice things like give you a set of wine glasses with a case, or a free bottle that they are promoting.

          You could probably arrange to get a meat box delivered every month - Donald Russell is meant to be good. I've done coffee before from the Algerian Coffee Store in Soho. This went down EXTREMELY well with my coffee-loving friends who deemed it "the gift that keeps on giving".
