With the Coronation of King Charles III and Queen Consort Camilla on May 6, brands across the globe are launching bespoke coronation collections. Many have taken classic English treats and added a unique royal flair. Here are the top 5 foodie gifts for your Coronation celebration.
Biscuiteers is offering royal-inspired biscuits featuring 12 expertly crafted, hand-iced lemon-flavored biscuits, gift-wrapped in a commemorative pink gilded keepsake square tin ($75). Each is inspired by royalty, with a range of bespoke biscuits such as the Sovereign’s Orb and sceptre, and the Gold Stage Coach, which will transport the king and queen to and from Westminster Abbey.
Marks and Spencer had royals on their mind when creating their Coronation Celebration Hamper with Prosecco ($149). It is the perfect combination of savory bites, like crown-topped sausage rolls and Coronation chicken crisps, and sweet treats like the mini King Colin cakes and chocolate crowns, all accompanied by a bottle of prosecco to toast the occasion. The Coronation Celebration Hamper also comes with decorative Coronation-themed paper plates, napkins, and a souvenir tote bag.
Fotnum & Mason rolled out a series of gifts and created The King of Picnics basket ($620) for the coronation. It certainly lives up to its name. The picnic basket features 39 items, including olives, bread, crackers, cheeses, meats, teacakes, and brownies that are made fresh before packaging, along with a special Coronation Champagne.
The Limited Edition Coronation Case ($145) from Drinkwell contains 12 bottles of sugar-free wines to perfectly pair with delectable Coronation treats. Each glass of wine only has, on average, 78 calories, making it a relatively low-calorie pour. Drinkwell recommends Traces Sauvignon Blanc to pair with salads or goat cheese and crackers ― an English favorite ― and Henners Chardonnay paired with another English favorite, fish and chips.
Another decadent picnic option for the Coronation would be the Luxury King’s Coronation Selection ($186) from Dukeshill. The lavish assortment includes handmade pork pies, quiches, smoked salmon, and brownies. The luxury lunch celebration includes bottles of Mike Tindall, James Haskell, and Alex Payne’s award-winning Blackeye Gin — a feast fit for a King and Queen!
