WILFRED’S CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE

I don’t know about you, but I like to sort my presents for friends and family well in advance, as I want to cosy up with a mince pie and a glass or two of mulled wine on Christmas Eve rather than rushing around the shops!

This year, more than ever, it’s about giving meaningful gifts that matter. Not only does knowing you’ve really nailed a thoughtful present for a loved one feel great, but it means less waste, with nothing ending up in a drawer (or, worse, the bin!). Plus, it means every single penny you spend on a present counts, as we all know that money doesn’t grow on trees.

With plenty of time to browse and buy in the big build-up, I’ve rounded-up the best gifts for the special people in your life, from foodies to spa-lovers. Rest assured, there’s something for everyone this season.

Gourmet gifts

As you’d expect, we’ve got all kinds of foodie ideas to inspire delicious gifts this Christmas, from our Cumberland Sausage Making Kit for the budding chef to The Black Farmer Leather Apron for BBQ kings and a Wooden Platter for hosts-with-the-most. For a packed lunch with pizzaz, my Indian-style Tiffin Tin is a favourite, while a smorgasbord of gourmet oils, condiments and fudge always make for moreish stocking-fillers!

Hamper hauls

Whether for a family member or a work client, nothing shows you care quite like a hamper brimming with seasonal goodies, and our festive selection is sure to do the trick. Choose from The Cheese & Wine Christmas Treat – packed with everything you needed to put on an after-dinner spread – The Relaxed Christmas Box – filled with ‘you-time’ essentials – or The Cheers For Christmas Box, perfect for dad with premium beer and quality snacks. Better still, everything comes ready-made, meaning gifting couldn’t be simpler.

Bar stars

Help friends to recreate happy hour at home! My house pour is The Black Scotsman Single Malt Whisky – a wee dram is sure to warm you up – while Don Wilfred Rum is a secret ingredient when it comes to mixing professional cocktails without stepping foot outside the front door. For something a bit different, the Globe Beverage Dispenser is a real conversation-starter, whether for spirits, beer or softs. Give it pride of place on a console table and tell friends to help themselves.

Wellbeing wonders

At last, health and wellbeing are taking priority. Which is why I created Pause – a line of all-natural products made in Britain – ranging from candles and diffusers to bath salts and essential oils. My pick is the Rosemary & Orange Aromatherapy Candle, hand-poured from natural wax using a special blend of soy and coconut, and scented with a herby, zesty fragrance. Give the gift of rest and relaxation this year.

 

Twinkling treasure

Who doesn’t like to unwrap a piece of jewellery on Christmas Day? Our bracelets, all beautifully-made, feature semi-precious stones – the Abalone Shell Bracelet is conducive to emotional tranqullity; while the Amethyst Cuff Bracelet is said to have healing properties. Eye-watching wrist candy for everyone.

Garden gear

Is there anything more British than taking pride in the garden? Our decorative pieces for your great outdoors are certain to get the neighbours talking come summer, from the handwoven Green Willow Star – which can be hung on a tree for maximum impact – to the Woven Willow Pheasant, a lifelike addition for any lawn.

Happy shopping!
