Special Cornish gifts for friends and family
If you’ve set foot on Cornwall’s sandy shores you will have undoubtedly formed a lasting bond with our beautiful county. There’s something about Cornwall’s breathtaking landscape and unique heritage that stays with us and draws us back time and time again. But, when you can’t be on Cornish soil, the next best thing is to surround yourself with Cornish gifts and keepsakes that bring back memories of happy days in the homeland!
Shop Cornish has hand-picked a collection of Cornish souvenirs that make incredible gifts for family, friends, or even yourself! Each and every one of these carries the spirit of Cornwall and will help you relive your most treasured Cornish moments.
Point the way to Cornwall with the Cornwall Direction Sign from The Cornish Store! Those with a soft spot for Cornwall will love this fun distressed wood effect sign that looks great hung on a wall or hook at home. Painted in sea blue to remind us of sunny days on the coast, this beach-inspired sign makes us feel closer to Cornwall and adds a stylish touch to any room.
Inspired by the Cornish coastline
If you’ve explored the Southwest Coast Path or some of the stunning open gardens in Cornwall, you may have admired the succulents that thrive in the region’s temperate climate. If you fancy recreating these beautiful succulent scenes back home, why not visit Cornish grower, Surreal Succulents’ online shop where you’ll discover a huge selection of succulents in many different shapes, colours, and sizes. These attractive plants are ideal house plants, very easy to care for, and make great gifts!
Pasties with a twist
Attention chocoholics! We must tell you about Trenance Chocolate’s Mini Chocolate Pasties! Handcrafted in Cornwall using fine couverture chocolate sourced from Belgium and made with a crimped crust – just like real pasties, these luxury bites are both delicious and beautifully made! Each box contains 9 milk chocolate mini pasties and is available for mail order with a handwritten gift card.
Jellyfish glass art
Reminiscent of Cornish beach days with jellyfish bobbing around in the water and glistening on the sand, Niko Brown’s Ocean Jellies features 8 round jellyfish that have been hand-crafted from fused glass. Each little jellyfish is an individual work of art with unique coloured markings in the glass. Professionally framed, and signed by the artist, this piece makes a gorgeous addition to your artwork collection or a super gift for a loved one.
Brand new from Budeful, the Bude Blue Wave Bowl is locally made from white earthenware clay and hand painted with waves inspired by the dramatic Cornish seas. With a choice of warming orange or calming blue inside, these good-looking bowls look amazing on the table and attract many a compliment!
Loose leaf teas from Cornwall
For an authentic Cornish brew, try some of Cornish Tea’s loose-leaf teas such as their refreshing Loose-Leaf Peppermint, fruity Red Berry Loose-Leaf, or supremely popular Cornish Breakfast Loose-Leaf which is a fine 100% black tea blend. Cornish Tea sources the finest teas and tisanes from around the world, works its magic on them in Cornwall, and turns them into these comforting blends that all tea drinkers love!
An arty centrepiece
Transform your dining table with Alchemy Tiles’ Cascading Centre Piece Tiles that are designed to protect your surfaces from hot plates and serving bowls. Individually hand carved and decorated with designs such as our featured ‘Mother Earth in Summer’ and ‘School of Fish,’ these circular tiles slide together to create a stunning focal point.
The mischievous seagull
All too often a seagull swoops down and steals our ice cream or fish and chips, but as pesky as seagulls are, it wouldn’t be Cornwall without them! The Cheeky Gull Picture from St Ives Glass Studio is handmade by Cornish artist Adam Carver and makes a perfect seaside souvenir. Set in a 3D wooden box frame that can be stood on a shelf or hung on the wall, this fused glass piece appeals to all ages and spreads a little Cornish cheer!
