Does the thought of Christmas shopping send you into a spin? Does it feel more of a chore than an occasion? Imagine then leaving the hustle of the high street behind and enjoying a more relaxed and chilled out shopping experience.
Head to Welbeck and you’ll find a wide selection of gift ideas for family and friends. Start your festive shopping with a trip to the Welbeck Winter Weekend and pick up some special hand-made gifts from over 100 artisan makers, you could have Christmas all wrapped up.
Step inside The Harley Shop and you’ll discover a range of contemporary crafts that make the most thoughtful of gifts. The gallery shop is stocked with unusual, and often one-off, items from artwork, jewellery and ceramics to scarves and cushions that have been crafted by talented independent artists and makers.
Here you will find something to suit all friends and family with the added bonus of prices to suit all budgets. Visit The Harley Shop to see the full range.
If you fancy creating your own gifts to give that extra personal touch, then why not take a look at the full range of artist-led workshops and let an artist guide you through a range of skills and techniques, from crafting something special from a lavish jewellery piece made in silver and gold to a personalised pottery piece that you can treasure forever.
If you need a gift for the food lover, we'd recommend you check out Welbeck Farm Shop. With shelves stocked full of delights for everyone, from locally made gins to delectable chocolates and luxury hampers stuffed full of festive flavours and delights, that are sure to make the perfect present this year. There is also the very special Made at Welbeck selection, which includes artisan cheeses from Welbeck’s Stichelton Cheese and real ales handcrafted at Welbeck Abbey Brewery.
If there’s someone in the family who is notoriously difficult to buy for, have you considered buying a voucher?
Gift experiences are the perfect present, whatever their interest. Know a Great British Bake Off fan? They will love you forever if you give them a voucher for a course at The School of Artisan Food. As for beer loving friends, why not treat them to a voucher for a Welbeck Abbey Brewery tour? Meanwhile, creative types will love a voucher for one of the arts and crafts workshops or a session of the monthly Makers Club.
So, there you have it, that’s Christmas all wrapped up! That just leaves you with time to head over to The Harley Café for an indulgent festive treat – perhaps even (dare we suggest it?) a celebratory glass of Prosecco? Cheers!
