A thoughtful gesture goes a long way. From a young age we learn the essence of gifting is the sentiment – a tradition deeply embedded in Italian heritage. If you’re a regular Devouree or have celebrated a special occasion at Devour at the Dyehouse, you may have experienced that touch of sparkle from Liv – our founder. She loves to share the magic of those special moments – a warm reminder of why Devour exists, to help you connect, savour, and sparkle in every moment.

With the holiday season in full swing, Liv has curated her favourite gift ideas—exclusively available at Devour at the Dyehouse, Holmfirth's best Italian restaurant.

We extend our opening hours leading up to Christmas, so join us for a drink and discover the perfect presents. Pre-orders are welcome via email; we'll reserve your selection for you.

The gift for the ungiftable – the Devour experience

The answer to the ultimate gift conundrum – what to get the partner who has everything, the parent who wants comestibles not possessions, or a friend who’s a really great human and is always there for you? There's no better way to say ‘thanks’, ‘love’ or ‘sorry’ than a luscious lunch or a divine dinner at your favourite Holmfirth restaurant, with the perfect Christmas Gift Experience.

Purchase gift card: Available online here or for collection at Devour.

Our Le De Da coffee blend

Coffee transcends the ordinary—it's an art. Espresso, cappuccino, affogato—all Italian classics. Devour presents its exclusive La De Da coffee blend, in collaboration with Dark Woods, as the ideal stocking filler. This specialty blend comprises select arabicas from South America and India, paired with the finest robusta from the award-winning Harley Estate in India. A mid-roast results in a smooth, rich-bodied espresso, redefining this classic style.

Who makes our blend: Dark Woods Coffee are award-winning speciality coffee roasters based in Huddersfield. Carefully roasted and packaged by hand, producing an array of flavours to suit a wide range of styles and tastes – it’s no surprise Dark Woods were awarded more Great Taste Awards than any other coffee company this year, as well as another ‘Golden Fork’ for Best Northern Product.

Purchase La De Da coffee: Medium/dark roast - toasted hazelnut and dark chocolate coffee. Bean OR ground, 250g, £9 – available at Devour.

Pair your brew with the perfect mug

Is there anything better than cosying up in a corner, getting lost in a good book, only to be tempted away by a mug of your favourite tea or coffee?

Olivia has selected some of her favourite mugs from the Home Society and Nkuku, available from £6 – the best accompaniment to our La De Da Coffee.

Pick up a book that can’t be put down

Help your loved ones unwind, find inspiration, or escape reality with a book from our diverse selection. Satisfy Italian cravings with indulgent Italian recipe books, explore Italian fiction, or learn a little lingo with an Italian phrase book. For local enthusiasts, discover classic Yorkshire walking guides.

Liv’s favourite: Elena Ferrante – My Brilliant Friend, set in Naples.

Our honey, for your honey

Known by the Greeks as the ‘food of the Gods’, honey really is the sweetest treat. Homegrown and homemade, our local honey is a result of a partnership with our friend Carl from Holme Valley Honey.

Carl the honey man collects from the bees who visit our wildflower meadow which becomes a mass magnet for beautiful butterflies and bees during late spring and summertime.

Irresistible and exquisite, we use it in our dishes and cocktails – be sure to pick up a jar of this perfect companion this Christmas, available for £10.90

Our best seller - Devour mulled wine

The all-time favourite, the Devour mulled wine. Returning for the fourth year, the Devour mulled wine is one of Liv’s favourites.

Made with Nero d'Avola red wine from Sicily, Liv sums up this popular drop: “Mulled wine is one of my winter highlights; the welcoming warmth of a glass of spiced wine after a long walk in the cold is just wonderful. At its best, mulled wine brings the smells and thoughts of Christmas flooding back whatever the season.”

Purchase mulled wine: Available for take-home, 750 ml of homemade mulled wine made with Sicilian Italian red wine, brandy, cinnamon, orange peel, cloves, star anise, stem ginger, and vanilla. £21 per bottle.

The Akènta Sub – underwater sparkling wine from Sardinia

A unique masterpiece designed by the sea, the Akènta Sub is a remarkable gift for enthusiasts and admirers. A rare sparkling wine aged on the seabed of the Costa Coralla, submerged to a depth of 40 meters for 8-10 months. Aged in the absence of oxygen and light, this excellent aperitif pairs naturally with all fish and delicate land dishes.

Only two of the 5,000 bottles of this extra dry Vermentino di Sardegna Doc are available at Devour at the Dyehouse.

Purchase from Devour at the Dyehouse, £95 – only two available.
