It's officially the most wonderful time of the year. The decorations are up and sparkling, and your calendar is filled with celebratory plans. Now, all that's left is finding the perfect gift for your loved ones. This may seem like the most challenging part for some, but fear not, the team behind LiliAnne has you covered. Ready to delight even the hardest on your list to please, their festive hampers are filled with gourmet treats galore.

"Everybody loves food. Nobody will say no to food," laughs Executive Chef of La Serre, Anne Laure Morisset Dutel. Joined by Lilia Dombrovscaia, the Regional Chief Operating Officer of Lincoln Hospitality Group, they are the duo behind the brand. "Food brings people together," adds Lilia. The LiliAnne line-up currently includes biscuits, granola, honey, jams, oils, pastries and vinegars. Each item is created by hand, in-house by the talented team at La Serre, using only the finest ingredients.

The hampers arrive in four different sizes. The small features a jar of jam, a flavoured honey, a packet of cookies and some tea to enjoy it all with. The medium adds an oil, truffle oil and the brand's much-loved granola to the mix. Next, the large almost doubles in size, and for the true food lovers, the extra-large hamper arrives with no less than 17 of LiliAnne's most celebrated items.

Foods perfect for the season ahead include its zingy Apricot or Christmas favourite, Cranberries and Orange Jams. Sweep a thick layer onto a slice of fresh baguette or use them in your festive cooking. Add a little more luxury to any meal with some Foie Gras Terrine or nibble on a selection of French cheeses. Not only for those on the naughty list, LiliAnne's Sweet Black Truffles arrive reminiscent of pieces of coal. Bite into them to reveal a golden honeycomb on the inside, the perfect sweet surprise.

It's even time to elevate the most basic items of your loved one's pantry. A humble jar of salt is combined with herbs sourced from the Provence region in France to add a punch of flavour to every meal. Or look to adding artisanal butter to your menu with LiliAnne's range of Bordier infusions. With flavours like wild garlic, lemon, and smoked salt, you or those you have gifted will never look at butter in the same way again.

Hampers can also be personalised to your loved one's tastes, with a minimum spend of AED250. Arriving in classic wicker baskets that feature leather and gold detailing alongside the brand's elegant logo, they are a gift in themself. They are available to purchase directly at La Serre or online at LaSerre.com. You can also order them online at Deliveroo. Making for the perfect day out, why not stop and enjoy some refreshments and festive cheer right on the boulevard whilst you're at it?
