Original Olive Inspired Gifts

Finding the perfect gifts to give your family and friends this festive season can be a nightmarish task, searching crowded malls in the hopes of finding a seasonally-overpriced gift that people actually want is not so easy.

That’s why the Olive Central team have found some original olive gift ideas to make your gifting search a whole lot easier.

Babylonstoren has some beautifully packaged local olive products that any foodie would want in their kitchen. We love the design on their olive oil tins, and that there is a selection of two different kinds of olive oil for the discerning olive oil lover. Babylonstoren also offers customers elegantly designed jars of Manzanilla Olives.


Chaloner products are grown and crafted by the Chaloner family at their farm on the slopes of the mountain next to the picturesque town of Stellenbosch, in the Western Cape Province of South Africa.

The great thing about this range of products, besides the taste of course, is that there are so many different olive inspired condiments with different flavours to choose from, there is something for everyone! Their signature Olive & Chilli Marmalade, paired with one of their olive tapenades and a bottle of their award winning extra virgin olive oil, would make an impressive olive gift hamper.


Willow Creek Olive Estate is another favourite local producer with a variety of olive oil and olive products to choose from. Their selection of different flavour infused olive oils, such as lemon and blood orange, make for the perfect gifts for the adventurous home cook. Willow Creek’s range also includes an assortment of olives, tapenades and pestos, mixing and matching these you can easily create your own delightful gift set.


Rio Largo Olive Estate’s product range includes bulk olive oil tubes that are not only packed with quirky artwork designs, but also store the award winning olive oil under optimal conditions allowing no air or light in to spoil the oil, perfect for the supreme olive oil enthusiasts.  Their range also includes beauty products, olive oil skin balm and olive oil soap, which would also make great gifts.


Olives and wine pair perfectly together, and Baleia Wines not only offer award winning wines but also interestingly packaged olives and olive oil. Simply throw together a bottle of their wine with some of their delicious olives and you have a gift that most wine lovers would envy.
