Christmas Gift Ideas for Young Children

Suitable from birth, Jellycats are the super soft, snuggly toys that will be adored from the second they are unwrapped. Collectable and full of personality, Jellycat toys come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, but for Christmas, it has to be from the Christmas Jellycat collection. There’s the Jellycat Bashful Stardust Bunny, the Jellycat Peanut Penguin, and don’t forget to look at the Jellycat books too!

Nomination bracelets are a firm favourite as a gift for friends, and their rose gold friendship knot charm is really special.

Christmas Gifts for Couples

When you’re buying for two, it’s always better to find something that will appeal to both sides of the partnership, rather than just one… but if opposites attract, finding a Christmas gift that sits in the middle can be somewhat of a challenge. Don’t worry, we’ve done the hard work for you!

Give them some sparkle they can show off with a pair of our Dartington wine glasses. Ideal for newly weds, new home owners, or couples who enjoy a glass or two on the weekend.

For couples who love getting creative in the kitchen, we have a whole host of fantastic cookery books like this Halloumi Cookbook, Vegan Snacks Book and the National Trust Book of Baking.

Christmas Gifts for the Person Who Has Everything

There’s always one person who is notoriously difficult to buy for. When you ask them what they want for Christmas, they’ll say: ‘I don’t mind, surprise me!’ or ‘you don’t have to get me anything’. While it’s lovely that they aren’t picky, it can make choosing a gift even more difficult!

Don’t worry, we’ve gathered a collection of Christmas giftspiration that anyone and everyone will appreciate. First up, is our Christmas chocolate selection. Decadent, delicious and indulgent chocolates that are a real treat for anyone who enjoys chocolate.
