Christmas can be more than dodgy mince pies and carolling, you know. If you’re in London, the world is your oyster. Check out these cool Christmas services available to all…
Have a gorgeous festive feast – with no effort
Peardrop London has launched its Moveable Feast Collection: spectacular feasting tables, delivered directly to your door. Whether it’s at home with friends or a work do, they will provide homemade sweet and savoury canapés, delicious desserts or feasting platters. Check out the Luxe Platter with an array of artisan cheeses, alongside smoked salmon, salami and parma ham, homemade malt loaf and honeycomb & fresh figs, or the Sausage Roll Box, with pork, prune & caramelised red onion sausage rolls.
Each Moveable Feast is handmade to order and delivered on electric bicycles in biodegradable, collapsible boxes, with napkins and festive foliage to decorate the table. For those wanting a special touch, Peardrop London team can deliver and set up the grazing table, too. It takes away all the stress of organising and also creates a beautiful festive centre-piece.
Indulge in some vegan mince pies
Stave off colds with an IV Drip
At Avicenna Wellbeing in Marylebone, IV drips are bespoke and tailored to needs and deficiencies. Pick from the likes of immune boost, anti ageing and skin bright – all much-needed for party season. You could also head to the IV Boost Clinic for its Christmas Cocktail Menu, offering the perfect party tonics to help you navigate the festive season.
Get all the gifts
Spring Green London is running the 12 days of Christmas programme. Each day one person on Instagram will get a gift from one of the people Spring Green collaborates with. It could be a supply of Bodyism powder for a month, worth £50, or an organic three-wick candle. Finally, someone will receive the ultimate gift – three days of Spring Green London food delivery. The delicious sounding pumpkin and porcini pasta is a new festive meal for Christmas.
Truffle it up
Gelupo, the artisanal gelateria in Soho, can deliver truffles straight to your front door. The white truffles (‘of the Madonna’) are delivered to Gelupo straight from Alba in Piedmont, North Italy. Next, they go via same day delivery to hungry Londoners. Each truffle delivery can be accompanied by a truffle shaver, gelato, or other items from the Gelupo shop.
Some recommended accompaniments are light, creamy pasta, risotto dishes such as taglierini with egg yolk and parmesan, or girolle risotto. Truffles can weigh between 5 – 50g, meaning the perfect size can be selected for any occasion and budget. Perfect for an intimate dinner party or a celebratory feast.
Now, that’s what we call service.

She’s also learning to cook. Wish her (and her husband) luck.
