Treat him to a gift he will never forget with our Messenger Bag in Charcoal by Alaskan Maker. Perfect for safely transporting all of his gadgets and much much more, this bike bag is a practical present that will leave him wondering how he ever managed without it.
Or why not spoil him with this luxurious Lunch Bag NOMADE by Alaskan Maker. It’ll keep lunches and snacks cool and dry, while he’s out exploring the great outdoors.
Bring a smile to her face and a glow to the home with the glamorous Glimmer Candle. This captivating candle is dusted with subtle shimmering particles making it an extra special stocking filler.
Perhaps she’s a lady with more of a traditional taste. So, why not present her with one of our classic Faroe Throws? Available in three nature-inspired shades, and crafted from 100% pure new wool, these throws bring effortlessly stylish countryside-chic to her home. Whether she’s curled up in front of the fire or thrown the faroe around her shoulders when out for a walk, these throws will keep her nice and warm throughout the winter.
For the Fashionista:
Is everyday a catwalk for this special someone? If so, why not add a unique accessory to their wardrobe that is bound to add a splash of colour to all of their outfits. The Harris Cashmere Blend Scarf in Navy is a true fashion statement, that ensures heads will turn.
For the One With Green Fingers:
Got a keen gardener to buy for? Then you have come to the right place. Treat your green-fingered friend to our Hort Hand Fork. Made from sturdy steel and pinewood, this hand fork helps make gardening tasks a treat.
For those often found tending to the kitchen garden or caught snipping blooms in the cutting garden? Then trips to and from the garden can be made a whole lot easier with a timeless trug. Made from hard-wearing willow, our beautiful Bell Trug is perfect for transporting bundles of fresh blooms and harvested hauls.
For the Wine Lover:
Struggling to find a present for your fellow wine connoisseur? Our Set of Six Wine Goblets by The Vintage List can’t fail to delight. Available in two delightfully vintage-style lens and star designs, these hand-blown and hand-engraved, lead-free crystal goblets take enjoying a cheeky glass to the next level.
For the Host/Hostess With the Mostess:
We all know that one person who loves to play host. Setting out divine dining displays and cooking the most spectacular dishes is their true passion. Applaud your host this Christmas by treating them to our Tall Crystal Hobnail Jug, and watch them create astonishing table scenes like never before!
If scrumptious snacks are more up their street then why not present them with our Deauville Nibbles Plate in French Grey? This abstract and detailed plate is perfect for displaying all of their nutritious nibbles and lends a showstopping finish to every occasion.
For the One Who’s Always Outdoors:
Can’t quite find a present for your lover of the great outdoors? Well, not to worry as we have the ultimate outdoor gift. Le Brasero Firepit by Alaskan Maker will change the way they adventure forever! Portable and practical, this stylish fire pit makes an excellent present for anyone who loves to be immersed in nature.
For the Star Baker:
We all know someone who loves to fill us up with tasty treats and delicious bakes. Why not treat your very own Mary Berry wannabe with a place to exhibit their baking triumphs in our crystal-clear Scrumbles Jar. Engraved with a subtle star design and topped with a gleaming lid, this jar is sure to keep hands coming back to the cookie jar.
For the Cheese Lover:
Cheese, cheese, cheese! Tangy, nutty, creamy and moreish, we can’t get enough of it here at Bloomsbury. And so, we couldn’t resist the Ledwell Paddle Platter. Paired with our golden Set of Cheese Knives, who could resist indulging in a morsel here and a little chunk there. The answer to every cheese lover’s prayers.
For the Budding Interior Designer:
Bloomsbury Home is filled to the brim with handcrafted and bespoke homewares. Abstract and adventurous, we like to go bold with our interior design (and we love to add a splash of colour here and there). Whether they have just moved in, just moved out or have lived there forever, why not give a colourful furnishing this Christmas with help from our vivid Hope baskets. Or if they are in full festive swing, why not give them our Star of Wonder decoration?
For the Plant Parent:
Indoor plants are huge (even when they’re tiny!). House plants bring with them known health and wellbeing benefits, but let’s not have nature’s wonders housed in plastic pots, when they can be presented in plant palaces. Gift them a home in our metallic Burnished Moon Planter with it’s captivating copper finish. It’s the perfect contrast against greenery and frames a botanical scene.
For the Artist:
Fellow creatives will light up at the sight of our hand thrown and glazed Edo Peony Dinner Plates. As aqua meets rose, this picturesque plate is the perfect gift for anyone with an eye for art.
