Christmas Gift Guide
It’s the most wonderful time of the year once again and the race is on to get everything ticked off your Christmas list. There is still time to shop local in Bristol, supporting independent businesses and buying unique and unusual gifts that you wouldn’t find on the high street. We hope by now Santa has his list checked twice but there are lots of local businesses that can help if the elves are falling behind. What could be better than giving someone you love an experience to share together? Take a trip to our eclectic, beautiful city with your loved one and make memories that will last long after Christmas. The best available rates for our serviced apartment accommodation in Bristol are always available when you book directly.
What do you get for the person who has everything for Christmas? Chances are they don’t need another pair of socks and you want your gift to stand out. This year, give the gift of experience when you give your loved one a gift voucher for PREMIER SUITES. Our vouchers are the perfect last-minute gift as they can be delivered and/or printed on the spot, so it doesn’t matter how late you buy them. When you purchase an e-voucher, you will be treating someone to the gift of travel across 27 destinations, throughout Ireland, United Kingdom, Netherlands, and Belgium. Whether that’s a weekend getaway or a family vacation, it’s up to them. You can gift any amount between £50-£500. If you’re lucky, they might even take you along!
Shop Local for Him
Dad probably has enough socks and your brother certainly does not need another shower set! Shopping local for the man in your life is easy with the huge selection of local and independent shops in Bristol. Room 212 on Gloucester Road offers an amazing array of artwork by local Bristol artists and creatives including paintings, original prints and illustrations. Bristol CoLab is an independent shop on Gloucester Road that sells clothing, gifts, art, jewellery, cards and books, ideal for picking up something unusual for the important men in your life. Books are always a good choice, especially for lovers of history, art, fiction and fact. Arnolfini Bookshop, Storysmiths and Stanfords are local independent bookshops we recommend.
Shop Local for Her
If she already has enough of her favourite perfume, look for a more unique gift for the important woman in your life this Christmas. On Gloucester Road, Paper Plane Bristol is full of beautiful handmade gifts from Bristol, jewellery, items for kids and teens, homewares and clothes made by local designer makers and artists. Kiln, also close to Gloucester Road, offers pottery painting for kids and grownups and is a creative bonding experience she would love. Stokes Croft China sells English fine bone China, T-shirts, books, cards, original art and prints – how luxurious! Fig1 on Wapping Wharf sells homeware, festive items, cards, cooking paraphernalia, jewellery, and indulgent body care – you’re sure to find something she’ll love.
Local Toy Shops Bristol
Independent toy shops are a dying breed. While there are dozens of chain stores with mass-produced plastic toys, it’s hard to find great quality, durable toys that you can pass down through generations. Bristol still has a couple of independent toy shops that need your custom. Playfull Toyshop sells children’s toys and games from across Europe. This gorgeous Gloucester Road shop specialises in wooden toys, games, crafts, books and puzzles. Totally Toys has been selling all kinds of child-friendly fun since 1988. The shop boasts one of the largest collections of Lego in Bristol – always a hit with all ages.
