Take their breath away with something extra special this Christmas
Sometimes we want to go that extra mile when it comes to treating someone exceptionally close to us. And a special gift is the perfect way to show our thanks, appreciation, and endless love.
With just two weeks to go until Christmas day, Shop Cornish has curated a collection of high-end Cornish gifts that will knock their socks off and show them just how much you care.
Artwork with heart
We adore Fiona Cant’s paintings which so brilliantly capture both emotion and energy. Inspired by wild landscapes, Fiona paints intuitively and creates works of art that speak from the soul. Visit Fiona Cant Studio online to view her collection of original semi-abstract paintings such as the exquisite, Gleam.
Fiona also welcomes private commissions, enabling you to order a piece of artwork with personal meaning – portraying a unique location, intention, or emotion. We can’t think of a more heart-warming present.
A forever gift
Give them a timeless Herringbone Wool Picnic Blanket from Atlantic Blankets this Christmas. Made from 100% sustainably sourced wool and backed with a waterproof lining – this blanket is designed to be both kind to our planet and super practical in the great outdoors. A durable natural leather strap makes this blanket easy to carry – and we think it’ll accompany them on a lifetime of adventures. Opt for a duck egg blue Atlantic Blankets gift box to present your gift in style.
We feature the gull grey Herringbone pattern but visit Atlantic Blankets to shop the full range of gorgeous colourways.
Those who know Cornwall will have undoubtedly discovered Jo Downs’ stunning Glass Galleries throughout the county. Her striking handmade glass creations make the most incredible statement pieces in the home and double up as exceptional gifts for those who appreciate Cornish artwork.
The Enchanted Eden Extra Large Deep Dish in the Artisan Collection is a fine example of Jo’s beautiful work. With an arresting blend of dark marine blues, rustic oranges, and soft swirls of gold, this dish has an eye-catching glossy finish and a unique design that they will treasure.
Sure to bring a smile
When lit, these amber glass candles bring the warmest glow to a room, and their ingenious fragrances of Naughty (Christmas Spice) and Nice (Candied Almond & Rose) fill the home with heavenly winter-themed scents.
What’s more, they come in a pretty kraft presentation box all wrapped up with a bow, so your gift can lie in pride of place under the Christmas tree.
Show your love with gold
Surprise them on Christmas day with Catherine Amesbury’s Gold Sweetie Necklace. This on-trend gold chain is made up of dainty gold-filled rings and fastens with a classic T-Bar closure.
A matching bracelet is also available for a truly special jewellery set that can be worn on both everyday and more formal occasions.
Snug and warm
There’s something timeless about beautiful knitwear – especially the Traditional Aran Sweater by knitwear specialist, Atlantic Shore in St Ives. This cable knit jumper is made of high-quality British wool and is as warm and hard-wearing as those made for fishermen all those years ago.
Choose natural cream for a traditional look, or an earthy shade of charcoal, green, gold, or blue for a contemporary take on this classic Irish sweater.
Bring out a Magnum of Tarquin’s Cornish Gin this holiday season! Designed for sharing with friends, this huge 1.5l magnum is over double the size of a standard bottle and will really get the party started! Individually filled, waxed, and stamped by hand – this massive magnum has been made with care and tastes deliciously fresh and crisp, with a vibrant juniper note.
If you can’t go all out at Christmas, when can you?
A little sparkle
She’ll be overjoyed when she opens a Lucy Kemp Jewellery pillow box containing a pair of Sterling Silver Hoops with Rose Quartz. These semi-precious stones are set into a silver bezel drop charm, looking stunning on the ear.
Handcrafted in Cornwall, these hoops are also available with opal, amethyst, labradorite, or semi-precious turquoise so you can select the perfect gemstone for the special lady in your life.
For the little angels
In a classic A-line design, and made to order in 10 colour options, she’ll find this so cosy and comfortable to wear all winter long!
Say it with jewellery
A great deal of love and thought goes into choosing a piece of jewellery, and she’ll really see that when she unwraps the Tangle Ring by C Jane Jewellery. Handmade in Southwest Cornwall and inspired by the organic shapes and textures in nature – the maker has wound strands of sterling silver intricately around each other in this artistically created piece. This truly is a gift that she’ll love dearly.
