For many, the thought of Christmas shopping sends shivers down the spine. With so much to do, so little time and a seemingly endless gifting list, this time of year can potentially strike fear instead of festive cheer.
If the above sounds like you, then don’t worry as we have collated 3 simple ideas to help you complete your Christmas shopping for the whole family with ease and enjoyment here at Trentham… ‘tis the season to be jolly, after all!
In a world oversaturated by online options, it can often be difficult to find the unique gift for that special someone. As our charming Shopping Village is home to over 80 fantastic retailers, you would be hard pressed to come away empty handed. The unique blend of independent retailers and beloved brands makes Trentham the perfect location to fix up Christmas for the whole family in one swoop (Of course we would recommend a hot chocolate break in between!)
Il Gusto is home to premium quality goods, including spirits, liqueurs and even olive oils. Product is decanted from casks into a bottle of your choice with your own message gorgeously written on it, so an ideal choice for those who love a festive tipple.
Or, for those animal lovers in your life, a trip to Zoophoria could be a great gifting opportunity. The beautiful and stylish products on sale support wildlife conservation and help raise awareness of the exploitation of wild spaces and loss of biodiversity. Artisan made and ethically sourced, this delightful store has plenty of present options for those who love wildlife.
Design 44 is a lifestyle and handmade gifts store supporting over 90 local designers and makers, with stylish and ethical gifts in store too. They currently carry Christmas gift boxes consisting of cheerful themes including Plant Lovers, Box of Positivity and Stop and Smell the Roses. This store truly is a one-stop-shop for your loved ones!
The last 2 years have been challenging for us all, many of us sacrificing precious moments with family, friends and colleagues to help stop the spread of coronavirus. It’s these sorts of moments that we’ve perhaps taken for granted, so the gift of experiences may be more appreciated than ever before.
Our annual Trentham Membership is a great option to keep the gift going all year around. Whether you’re looking for a stroll and a catch-up with your grown-up children or wish to discover the wonders of the wildlife inhabiting the Estate, Trentham Membership is a chance to play your part in supporting the conservation work constantly taking place. With Membership, you are also eligible for discount day passes for loved ones and gain early access to book our special events.
Speaking of which, Trentham Live 2022 tickets are a perfect option to spend time with loved ones. After an incredibly popular 2021 event, Trentham Live is back bigger and better with world-famous artists Olly Murs, Craig David and Steps headlining. With the stunning Gardens as a backdrop, sing and dance the evening away to some incredible music – certainly a gift to look forward to!
At Trentham, we are lucky enough to be surrounded by over 700 acres of glorious Gardens and woodlands that are just waiting to be explored. Spending time in the great outdoors is proven to make us happier and healthier, by lowering blood pressure, reducing stress and even improving our sleep!
