Christmas Day is almost here, but if you're still searching for that perfect gift for a loved one there's still time to visit our Virtual Christmas Market.

Make it snappy if you want items delivered, but some of our stallholders are offering click and collect so you can pick up your present in time for the big day.

The Art of Curry have brought back their famous cooking sauces - in a gift hamper!

These four sauce gift sets, with beautiful Indian lamps, handmade spice bags and soothing chai make a wonderful Christmas present, and can be ordered to be delivered anywhere in the UK.

They are fresh, chilled sauces, and so orders will be cooked and despatched as close to Christmas as possible.

Please visit the website to place your order as there is a limited number of these available to order by 18th December. The Art of Curry's online cookery masterclass course will commence in January 2021, so now is the perfect time to get a gift voucher for your loved ones for Christmas.

These consist of 12 hour-long lessons covering everything from starters to main courses to snacks and rice. They will be available to access all year round after the live or recorded lessons are held every week.

Available on the website - click on the Online Gift Voucher icon on the classes page, or order for yourself!
