24th November 2023

Gorgeous Cornish gifts for female friends and relatives

4 weeks until Christmas! It’s getting close, isn’t it! And if you’re anything like us, the days leading up to the 25th just get busier and busier!

Amongst the frenzy of festive decorating, Christmas parties, nativities, and preparations for guests, it can be hard to find the time to brainstorm novel gift ideas, that haven’t been used in previous years. So…we’re here to provide a little gift inspiration to take the stress out of your Christmas shopping and delight your favourite females!

Introducing a selection of our best-loved Cornish gifts for women – all made by artisan producers in Cornwall and sure to spark joy!

Holiday warmth

When the first frosts arrive, wrap up in the limited-edition Christmas Trees Blanket by Atlantic Blankets. UK made from recycled cotton, this roomy reversible blanket is perfect for snuggling up in over the festive period and brings all the holiday joy! Choose from traditional red or green, or a beautiful Cornish blue for a contemporary Christmas look.

Jolly jewellery

If you know a keen swimmer, the Swimmer Bangle by Made By Caroline will absolutely make their Christmas! Humorous, exceptionally unique, and very easy to wear, this resin bangle features hand-painted figures in a variety of swimming poses and comes in 3 different sizes for the perfect fit.

A cheerful kitchen

When it’s cold and grey outside, bring some Christmas cheer with Poppy Treffry’s Christmas Tea Towel. Screen printed in Cornwall on 100% unbleached cotton, these beautifully made tea towels make drying up a way more enjoyable task! For a bundle of Christmas gifts, take advantage of Poppy’s current 3 for £30 offer, using code TT3 at checkout!

Christmas chocolates

Elevating the humble box of chocolates to a whole new level, Langley’s Best of Dark Chocolate Selection Box includes a mouthwatering selection of rocky road flavours. Blending luxury dark Belgian chocolate with a tasty range of complimentary flavours, such as ginger, lemon, caramel, and amaretto, Langley’s has created something truly exceptional – so good that it has achieved a Taste of the West Gold award!

No home should be without these scrumptious pieces of rocky road this Christmas, so grab your box of 4, 12, or 24 without delay!

Glorious gifting

Practical gifts (the kind you rarely treat yourself to!) are often really appreciated. So, if you’re stuck for ideas, Caitlin’s Cornish Textiles’ Vanity Gift Set is a good bet for those hard-to-buy-for females!

With 3 handy zipped bags that work brilliantly for toiletries, make-up, or hair accessories – this set is just the job for storage at home or when travelling. Handmade in Cornwall from cotton-backed oilcloth, these cases are both durable and wipe clean. We feature the navy Aztec design, but you can take your pick from a selection of 21 lovely fabric designs.

Handmade loveliness

Taking inspiration from the shapes and colours of the Cornish coastline and countryside, Polgear Pottery in Redruth, produces a delightful range of pottery pieces from Cornish stoneware clay, with beautiful glaze finishes.

Polgear Pottery is exhibiting at the Made in Cornwall Christmas Fair on the 1st and 2nd of December in Truro Cathedral. Call by to view the full pottery range and find some superb gifts.

Recycled and repurposed

We can’t shout loudly enough about Behaviour Change Cornwall. We love what this Cornish charity is doing – recovering lost fishing gear and plastics from the ocean and recycling them into beautiful and useful new items.

Amongst their ingenious jewellery and homeware creations are the Ocean Plastic Scallop Shell Earrings. Made from bundles of fishing line, lobster pot frames and white ropes found in Cornish waters, these earrings are truly unique and also, of course, waterproof! Each purchase funds Behaviour Change Cornwall’s work recovering and recycling plastic – and contributes to ongoing work keeping our seas healthier.

Joyful gin

Ebba Coastal Cornish Dry Gin by Mounts Bay Distillery is a real showstopper. Not just because of its distinctive duck egg blue ceramic bottle, but also because of its noteworthy taste.

Enhanced with Cornish botanicals such as fresh sea aster, locally foraged rock samphire, and sea berries, this classic London dry gin has a sea herb finish that works in harmony with its juniper and citrus notes.

Named after the ‘ebb and flow’ of the ocean, this gin deserves full Christmas gifting status and is the perfect match for all sea-loving gin drinkers!
