Brioche Pasquier macarons

It’s hard to find really good macarons on the high street, but French family bakery Brioche Pasquier has perfected their recipe to a tee. We love the crisp shell and just-right chewy centre, with natural-tasting fillings piped beautifully in the middle.

Old Curiosity Distillery gins

This quirky new range of Scottish gins have been distilled using floral botanicals. These tinge the spirits pretty pastel hues that, when you add tonic water to them, change colour again for a highly Instagrammable G&T. Smooth and fragrant, they come in three different flavours: apothecary rose, lavender and echinacea and chamomile and cornflower (our favourite). £42 each, or £23 for a gift set of three miniatures, harveynichols.com
