Gingerbread, spiced cookies and roasted almonds - sweet, fragrant treats increase the anticipation of the festive season. Now is the time to start thinking about lovely gifts for gourmets and those with a sweet tooth. With enchanting motifs, you can create individual photo gifts for gourmets that you can't buy anywhere else. Whether it's an all-round sustainable Advent calendar, a creative recipe calendar, pretty menu cards and place cards or the CEWE PHOTO BOOK as a cookery book - with CEWE every gift of enjoyment becomes a very special one. CEWE has put together the best ideas for homemade Christmas surprises here.

Perfect for conscious gourmets - personal and sustainable photo Advent calendars
CEWE Advent calendars are absolutely unique, because they are made uniquely and individually for the respective favorite person - and also score points in terms of sustainability. With just a few clicks, you can design Advent calendars at CEWE that stand out from the crowd and create a special connection to the recipient with personal photos. In addition to the cover picture, many Advent calendars have space for photo surprises on the inside of the doors. And of course, there are little surprises hidden behind each door: Whether they are filled with fine chocolates from Ferrero, sweet chocolate treats from kinder® or small, exquisite gifts - CEWE's photo Advent calendars have the right filling for every favorite person.

By the way: with CEWE, the pre-Christmas period can be enjoyed in a particularly sustainable way. All CEWE Advent calendars now have a biodegradable inner part and the FSC®-certified paper used also contributes to a carefree Advent season. The XXL Advent calendar with sustainable Tony's Chocolonely chocolate is available from CEWE for the first time. The fairly-produced chocolate not only convinces with its delicate melting, but also with the attitude behind the nibbles: Tony's Chocolonely goes hand in hand with fair working conditions and fair pay for cocoa farmers. In addition, the chocolate packaging is completely recyclable.

The CEWE Advent calendars will be available from October 2022. For guaranteed delivery by 1 December 2022, the order must be placed by 24 November 2022. For more information, please visit www.cewe.de

With fine recipes and inspiring photos through the year: The cooking calendar
An individual gift idea for friends and family is a self-designed cooking calendar. All you need are 12 favorite recipes - and suitable photos. To make the selection easier, it is best to choose a specific theme. In this way, old family recipes can be brought back to life in the "family kitchen calendar" - for example, with photos of the authors or with pictures of the old, often handwritten recipes. Those who like to travel can also design their calendar as a culinary journey through the year, with recipes and pictures from all over the world. And, for all those who want to capture special memories of evenings together with delicious drinks and good conversation, there is - adults only - the cocktail calendar with photos and recipes of their favorite shared drinks. Inspired by the seasons, choose a delicious recipe each month, preferably with seasonal ingredients: a fresh mint elderberry iced tea to start the spring, homemade rhubarb-strawberry compote in summer, pumpkin spice latte for autumn and apple mulled wine with cinnamon to get you in the mood for Christmas.

There's a lot of love in it: The self-designed CEWE PHOTO BOOK as a cookery book
Cooking is a passion for many people, whether for themselves, the family or evenings with friends. How about putting together the best dishes with equally beautiful photos in a CEWE photo cookbook for all your favorite people? There are no limits to your imagination. Whether it's sweets, vegan dishes or entire menus - whatever tastes good is allowed! Often it is grandma's or mum's special recipes such as Königsberger Klopse, lentil soup or Dampfnudeln that should definitely be passed on. The collection of favorite dishes finds a worthy place in an individually designed CEWE PHOTO BOOK as a cookery book. Such a unique recipe book is a very personal gift idea, especially at Christmas, which will awaken fond childhood memories of familiar delights in the recipient. Simply put together the most delicious recipes and appealing photos and create a very personal CEWE photo cookbook. Pictures of the dish are particularly suitable, a combination of detailed shots and large-scale pictures looks best. But a fully decorated table, the whole family eating or impressions of shared celebrations are also great motifs for a personal photo cookbook.

Tip: Who says that dishes can only be photographed in the kitchen or at the dining table? Simply take the plate outside and use the natural light - for a very special effect.

Beautifully decorated festive table - because the eye eats with you
What is a relaxed Advent dinner with friends or a delicious Christmas meal with loved ones without a beautifully designed menu card? An individual menu and drinks list immediately increases the anticipation of enjoying the meal together and at the same time serves as a decorative element on the Christmas table. Stylish menu cards are easy to design with card templates from CEWE. Choose the right design from a wide range of festive designs and add your own photos and text - and you have a beautiful and very personal table decoration. Menu and drinks cards made of sturdy, high-quality paper can also be finished with a glossy varnish to give them a particularly festive character. Tip: Design matching place cards with photos and names to go with the menu cards so that every guest can find their place at the Christmas table. Available in a set of 10 with matching white envelopes.

Made with Love for Christmas: Small but exquisite gifts from the kitchen
Everyone is especially happy about gifts that they have made themselves with love. Trendy and loving at the same time are gifts from the kitchen, such as home-baked biscuits in a large glass bonbonniere or herb oil with dried herbs from your own garden. The highlight: a self-designed label with a photo sticker. Simply cut out a label from colored cardboard, decorate it with a self-adhesive photo sticker and attach it to the jar with a colored ribbon. CEWE photo stickers are available in different formats on brilliant photo paper in sheets of 4, 8 or 16 photos (from EUR 2.99 RRP).
