Special macadamia gifts for the Christmas season

Macadamias are stars of the Christmas season. Their buttery crunch makes them a favourite nut – and one that most people expect to see on the Christmas table. From beauty products to baked goods, there are any number of macadamia-style Christmas gifts that you can make at home for friends and family. However, amid the Christmas rush you often don’t have the time to make things for yourself. Luckily, we’ve compiled a list of some of the best macadamia products on the market that make great gifts or can feature in your Christmas entertaining.

Brookfarm Oven Roasted Macadamias

These delicious roasted macadamias come in two delicious Australian flavours – Saltbush and Pink Lake Salt. Featuring the creamy crunch of lightly roasted macadamias and extra flavour from sustainably harvested pink lake salt or native saltbush, these nuts are so beautifully packaged that they don’t need extra wrapping. A great gift for teachers or to have on hand in case you need a last minute host gift. 

  • Available from many IGA supermarkets and online

Salty Co flavoured macadamias

There is something for everyone amongst the delicious Salty Co line up of flavoured macadamias! We suggest Chilli and Lime macadamias for Dad and Cinnamon Doughnut flavour for Mum. But there’s also coffee flavoured macadamias for the coffee-lover in your life and salted caramel flavour for the friend with a sweet tooth. These make a great stocking stuffer.

Macadamia ice cream

A decadent macadamia ice cream pairs perfectly with Christmas pudding, or serve it on it’s own as a lighter, more summery option. Connoisseur’s Caramel Honey Macadamia Ice Cream is a delicious option for larger gatherings and the kids will love their own Milk Chocolate Macadamia and Salted Caramel or White Chocolate Macadamia and Coconut Magnum ice creams. Plant-based eaters will delight in the delicately flavoured Lemongrass, Caramel and Macadamia Coconut ice cream from Zebra Dream.
