This is part of our ongoing guide to Christmas gifts available to order from the traders you can find at Levenshulme Market and have delivered direct to your home. You can read the whole of the guide here.
If you happen to have children, you’ll know the Christmas day, as well as being a time of high magic for your little ones, can also be one of unfathomable exhaustion for you. From the unimaginably early start of the day right through to the bedtime tantrums, it’s a packed day, one which you’re only realistically going to get through with the assistance of some caffeine.
So here are some hot drink options to support you through the festive period, all available for home delivery from some of our regular traders.
1. Aeropress & Coffee Combo from Kickback Coffee
Either a pick-me-up for when you’re on the go, or a gift for the roving coffee-lover in your life, this aeropress is a mini marvel and Kickback Coffee, as many regular Levy Market customers will attest, know their beans and their blends like few others, with all their coffees sold within two weeks of roast date.
2. Christmas Gift Box from The Horse Trailer
If you’re planning to give someone a classic gift box, you can’t go wrong by supporting a small local business and purchasing one of these beauties from the Horse Trailer. This includes a pair of 200g bags of coffee replete with tasting notes and farm information, as well as a bag of homemade fudge, all gift wrapped and ready ribbon’d. You can even go deluxe with a cafetiere, eco cup and Monin syrup set.
3. Tea Hamper from Tiger Tea
After a gruelling day fuelled by coffee, you’ll want to take things down a notch. So why not treat yourself to this hamper from the great Tiger Tea Co. It includes three tea blends of your choice, an infuser, a Chinese tea cup and coaster and two mini Pu-Erh tea cakes.
For those after a calming Christmas, CBTea blend tea leaves and CBD oil, a compound found in the leaves of the cannabis plant. It contains no THC so won’t get you high (soz) but there is some research which suggests it can relieve arthritis, alleviate chronic pain and reduce anxiety and depression. To order send a DM via Instagram.
5. Coffee Cranks Vouchers
Coffee Cranks, one of our more regular coffee traders, is a cooperative that is 100% owned and run by the people who work for it. Their bicycle coffee cart will be back with us in the new year when, hopefully, the market will be back to normal. For now, why not support Coffee Cranks in a way that guarantees your enjoyment of our future markets by buying some of their vouchers which can be redeemed at either the market or at their cafe in Whalley Range.
