THE CHRISTMAS GIFT BOX COLLECTION FROM THE RIVER CAFE

21/10/22
The River Café is a true icon in London’s dining scene and celebrated around the globe as an innovator in modern design and authentic Italian cuisine. This festive season, chef-owner Ruth Rogers and her team have created their biggest and boldest collection of Christmas Gift Boxes to date, combining food and design with a curated selection of Italian delicacies and sweets, all packaged in modern gift boxes created exclusively by Michael Nash Associates in The River Café’s signature colour palette.
 
The new gift boxes offer something for everyone at every price point and every taste. From The Ultimate Box (£1,000) to The Essentials Bag (£125), each has been carefully curated with Italian ingredients and colourful homewares alongside new items for 2022 such as a one-kilo bar of chocolate, biscotti from The River Café pastry kitchen, chocolate truffles made exclusively for The River Café by La Molina, a limited-edition Spiced Negroni bottled at The River Café, the season’s new olive oil, and a signed copy of  The River Café Look Book, the newest recipe book by Ruth Rogers, Sian Wyn Owen, and Joseph Trivelli.
 
Also new this year is the ability to build your own bespoke box. The River Café is dedicated to providing an unparalleled guest experience and will work with customers to curate the perfect gift—no minimum or maximum spend.
 
Pre-order here, or on 020 7386 4280. Available throughout the UK and Worldwide. Order by 18th December to arrive in time for Christmas.
