✨ Our Christmas Gift Guide ✨

November 16, 2023 3 min read

This year our Castle Farm Team have been round the farm shop and picked out their favourite gifts for 2023! Here is a summary to fill you with inspiration if you are struggling for ideas of what to give that someone special. 

Visit the shop for a feast of delights - gifts and decorations... plus festive foods and treats for the little ones! 

We have beautiful Hampers online too - and you can make bespoke hampers filled with your favourite items which you can then post directly to a UK address. 



Kathryn Gift

"I have gone for a beautiful glass tankard and local ale - there are some lovely designs and colours to choose from, plus I enjoy buying local food and drink as gifts". 


"I chose hands on kits for building vintage vehicles over the Christmas break! There is such a great selection of designs and colours". 


Being let loose in the shop is a bit of a treat for these two... but Wilfred chose a BEE Activity Book and Frankie went straight for the 'Find the Fairy' Snap game with beautiful illustrations!


"These little coasters are wonderful. I have one that I have been using on my desk and it’s a great coaster because it’s quiet when you put your cup down and the patterns are all really attractive. They also have larger trivet versions! I’m a big fan of a gift that is a natural, sustainable material and is genuinely useful!


"This trio of Perry Cider is going straight to a good friend of mine - the lovely labels are also great for animal lovers". 


"ROKA bags are a long-lasting, sustainably minded gift for someone who enjoys getting out and about. They are incredibly well-made and I have one myself and use it all the time!" 


"I know exactly what Archer wants for Christmas!! These Rigby & Blackwell dog treats are described as 'Charcuterie for Dogs'... and they aren't far wrong.. luxury little treats for happy dogs!"


"My Mum has unashamedly requested more Sleepy Scent products from the shop for Christmas! She hasn't tried the Evening Candle yet - so that is going to be my surprise for her!" 


"There are some really lovely books in the shop - so I found it hard just to choose one! But 'The Grazing Table' gives you super inspiration for putting together antipasto boards.... then you can sit back and devour them with a glass of wine and friends."


"Receiving and discovering goodies inside a Christmas Hamper is always exciting... and in the shop you can choose the contents so you can match the likes and dislikes of the lucky recipient!" 


Gingerbreads galore! Coco couldn't go past the Christmas table with picking out a reindeer, snowman and penguin festive treat for each of the kids! 


The farm shop is open Tuesday - Saturday 9am-5pm and Sundays 10am-5pm. We hope to welcome you soon to browse the shelves without the chaos of the Christmas crowds! Enjoy your Christmas gift buying this year... we look forward to welcoming you. 


If you can't make it to the farm, there are lots of lovely gifts online... you can even make your own Hamper.. by adding our 'MAKE A HAMPER'product to your basket then choose your individual items. The team will pack it beautifully and can post out nationwide!
