For a gift that keeps on giving, you can’t beat a culinary masterclass. The mince pie course at Borough Market bakers Bread Ahead (£90 for 3 hours; breadahead.com) will get you into the festive spirit. Follow it with a bespoke cocktail class with a twist at Fitz’s at The Principle (£150 per head; email email@example.com up to one week prior). Then Ginger Pig’s beef butchery classes will send you home with a lovingly prepared côte de boeuf to impress your festive guests (£165; thegingerpig.co.uk).
