Wow them with Cornish gifts this Christmas
At the rate that November is flying by, it won’t be long before we’re hanging stockings by the fireplace and gathering family and friends together for feel-good Christmas festivities. But in the meantime, you can get ahead of the Christmas shopping game with our handy blog full of smaller Cornish gifts that are ideal stocking fillers. These promise a great reaction when unwrapped!
Practical yet pretty
The Pebbly & Bark Keyrings by SilverHare Jewellery will go down a storm with him or her. Handcrafted from recycled fine silver and personalised with a letter of your choice, plus a hammered pebble or embossed bark texture – this tactile keyring will add some sparkle to their every day and they’ll think of you every time they pick up their keys.
A little box of squish
Oh my word, we might just have found the ultimate sweet treat to gift this Christmas! Introducing the Seasonal Selection of Gourmet Marshmallows from Red Robin Pantry. Choose your own selection from 6 seasonal favourites including winter-themed flavours like mulled wine and gingerbread! Splendid with a hot chocolate or toasted over a roaring fire.
One for the outdoorsy folk
Dry, cracked hands can be synonymous with the winter months – something gardeners know all too well! But thankfully Sōlseed has come to the rescue with their Gardener’s Hand Salve which provides protection for dry, hardworking hands and effectively heals painful cracks. Fragranced with earthy essential oils – this also smells like a dream.
A special cuppa
They say that tea tastes better from a fine bone china cup – so we’re sure they’ll be thrilled with the beautifully designed Whiskers Fine Bone China Mug by Budeful. The monochrome cat design was inspired by the keys on a piano and is true to Budeful’s trademark art deco style.
Beach inspired threads
With their Take Me To The Sea Organic Cotton T-Shirt, Cornish clothing brand Kernow Mojo has captured the ‘draw to the sea’ that all beach lovers feel when away from the coast. This soft and comfortable t-shirt is cut in a relaxed and contemporary style – flattering all shapes and sizes. Available in French navy, black, white, and pink – this is a thoughtful gift for those that feel at home on the beach.
For little bookworms
Young readers aged 8 and up will be spellbound by timeless children’s book Tanzy – A Fable by Cornish-based author Tom Barrie Simmons. This short story tells the tale of a 13-year-old girl called Tanzy who is given a soft-toy colt. At night, this toy transforms into a mythical horse and the book takes the reader along with them on their riveting adventures.
A Cornish gift that supports bees
We know how vital bees are to our ecology and Cornish candle maker Nature’s Beeswax actively supports this by working closely with local beekeepers who lovingly maintain hives throughout Cornwall.
Using beeswax from these hives, Nature’s Beeswax makes natural, toxin, and smoke-free 100% beeswax candles such as the pillar style Flower Block Candle – featuring the sweetest flower detailing. A gift that works in harmony with nature – what could be better?
Coasters meet art
We’re a little bit in love with the hand-crafted, fused glass Wave Coasters by Dreya Glass. Not only do these coasters protect surfaces from drink stains, but they look incredible too. Each and every one is totally unique and perfectly captures the varying colours and moods of the sea. Pick up a pack of 2, 4, or 6 wave coasters for your special someone.
A Christmas classic for a reason – the sheepskin slipper has long been a festive favourite. Check out the Sheepskin Bootie Luxury Slipper Boots from Atlantic Shore. They’ll be in heaven when they sink their feet into these 100% natural suede slippers with a cloud-soft sheepskin lining. And with a durable rubber sole, these are made to last and last.
A nifty gift for dog walkers
The genius people at Dicky Bag have invented a solution to our dog poop woes in the form of the lightweight Dicky Bag storage and dispensing bag. An airtight & leakproof neoprene bag where you can pop those unsightly bags of dog mess when out on dog walks. With a separate compartment for a roll of clean bags, a bespoke air freshener, and the option to clip to either yourself or the dog, the machine-washable Dicky Bag really is the civilised way to carry dog poop. We feature the Blue Windmill Dicky Bag. Visit Dicky Bag to shop the full range of fun designs.
Artisan spirit maker, Moorland Distillery, brings us the 50ml Moorland Distillery Gift Pack that includes 3 of their popular spirits in pocket-size form. Their Apple Brandy, Cherry Brandy, and Hip Flask (an autumnal blend of sloe juice and distilled apple juice) are all crafted and matured on the edge of Bodmin Moor from the purest ingredients. Delight a relative or friend with this gift pack of warming tipples.
Creative kinds will treasure Corinne Lapierre’s Llama Felt Kit from Stitches & Cream. This make-it-yourself kit includes everything they need to create their very own llama decorations – from super soft felt, to threads, needle, and filling. Templates and instructions are also enclosed, plus a length of ribbon to hang these personality-packed animals around the home.
