The Perfect Food Box for Every Occasion with Thyme Out

Thyme Out Dalkey have put together thoughtful food packages full of delicious home cooked and nutritious meals so that you can take a break from the kitchen duties or let someone know that you are thinking of them, for whatever reason. Whether it’s a gift for a friend who is ill, pregnant, new parents, a celebration, a bereavement, or for someone who is going through a hard time, Thyme Out want the person receiving one of their food boxes to feel cared for and know that someone has thought about them by choosing such a thoughtful and practical gift.

For something a little less formal, Thyme Out gourmet gift hampers are packed full of artisan foods guaranteed to delight any recipient.

Thyme Out’s food boxes are prepared daily in their kitchen and are cooked in small batches using freshest ingredients to ensure that they are of the highest quality. Vegetarian boxes are available and meals are suitable for home freezing.

Let Us Cook for you Food Boxes

The perfect gift to let someone know you are thinking of them. This box includes a selection of healthy, nourishing meals – perfect for anyone in need of feeding up but maybe lacking the energy to cook for themselves. The Thyme Out Taster Box (from €65) contains 7 Thyme Out take home meals including Chicken and Broccoli Gratin, Shephard’s pie, Spinach Lasagne and Aubergine Parmigiana.

Gifting Food Boxes

Treat someone to afternoon tea or a picnic box (from €59), packed full of delicious sweet and savoury treats, the perfect grazing box for informal gatherings. Why not add a bottle of wine, rose or bubbles (from €14.50). Packaged in an easily transportable box, perfect for indoor or outdoor dining.

New Parents Food Boxes

This box is a godsend to any new parents, or as Thyme Out like to call it.. heaven in a box! The idea behind this Thyme Out Food Box is that exhausted new Mums and Dads can enjoy a week off cooking in the evening. The dishes have been specifically chosen for low spice and salt content for breastfeeding Mums. The First Week Food Box (€110) contains 14 dinners – that means 7 days worth of lovely dinners for two, ready to heat and serve.

Summer food boxes

Due to popular demand, Thyme Out have created The Holiday Home/ Air BnB Food Box (from €200). This Food Box is perfect for anyone enjoying their summer holidays in Ireland whether it be in a mobile home or an Airbnb. All meals are pre-cooked so all you need is a hob, oven or even a microwave to reheat and enjoy a delicious home-cooked meal.

This Food Box contains 5 nights worth of dinners for a family of four or six so that is 20 dinners or 30 dinners for a family of six with some sides, fresh bread and some homemade sweet treats. Treat yourself and your family to summer nights ‘in’ with a difference or buy as a gift for a family that deserves some spoiling.


Thyme Out handmade hampers are the perfect gift to surprise friends, family or colleagues. The gourmet gift hampers (from €45) come with favourite Thyme Out foods.
