Christmas Gift Inspiration from the Cookshop
The festive season is upon us. At Bakers and Larners of Holt, each of our departments is filled with Christmas gifts to suit a range of desires and needs. Whilst many may well opt for an item from our beauty department, an item of clothing, or perhaps a luxury B&L hamper, our cookshop department there are many Christmas gifts waiting to be found — whether they be as a decorative piece for the home, or as a present to be cherished in the years to come. Read on as our Cookware Assistant Chloe talks though some of her personal favourites.
Eddingtons Christmas Reindeer Nutcracker - £15.95
Whether it’s walnuts, hazelnuts or almonds, it simply wouldn’t be Christmas without the customary bowl of nuts. Our reindeer nutcracker makes this tradition all the more festive, and is equally impressive as an ornamental piece.
Gently press down the reindeer’s tail to crack the shell leaving a whole nut inside. Made from chrome metal, this hardwearing piece from Eddingtons is sure to last for many Christmases to come.
As Chloe enthuses: “This is an ideal ‘cracker’ of a gift and quite novel too!”
Emma Bridgewater Joy Robin Half Pint Boxed Mugs - £39.95
Those walking past our Market Place window displays this will find it hard to ignore our Emma Bridgewater Christmas collection. Featuring everything from plates, to candles and even hangable Christmas earthenware, the Joy Robin mugs in particular are ideal for a hot chocolate or mulled wine around the fireplace and make for a “practical and quaint gift,” as Chloe describes.
Spode - Glen Lodge 3 Piece Tea Set - £10.95
Another of our most eye-catching in-store displays this Christmas is that of the Spode Glen Lodge Collection — a celebration of the British countryside, inspired by the Highlands of Scotland. Our featured product is the Glen Lodge 3-piece tea set. Complete with tea caddy, spoon and spoon rest, this boxed set is perfect for wrapping and ideal for the tea lover this Christmas 2016.
