Best Of British Gifts
There are so many inspirational designers and manufacturers in the UK, many of them right on our doorstep, so make sure that you support local producers by buying British this Christmas.
Squire’s Garden Centres is a big supporter of local producers. As well as sourcing 80% of their plants from British growers, they also have a host of products that are designed or made in Britain, all of which make great gifts to give this Christmas.
Summerdown Black Mitcham peppermint is grown in Hampshire and harvested to make barrel aged peppermint oil, which is the essential ingredient in all their products. Their range includes fragrant diffusers and candles, hand wash and delicious mint chocolate collections encased in ethically sourced chocolate.
Sarah Squire, Chairman of Squire’s Garden Centres said; “If I could ask for just one thing for Christmas it would be Summerdown hand wash. I am not sure I have tried anything with quite such an enchanting, fresh yet comforting scent.”
Heyland and Whittle
English manufacturer Heyland and Whittle of London produce their products in the traditional way. But there is nothing old fashioned about their soy blended candles and reed diffusers which come in really pretty recycled glass. The attractive card packaging is 100% recycled and recyclable.
Leatherhead based Toasted Crumpet make and design a range of luxurious thick tea towels and beautiful fine bone china jugs and mugs, all inspired by garden plants and the Surrey countryside.
“We love their Fern, Hydrangea and Eucalyptus designs, and the enchanting festive robin mug is just perfect for the season,” says Sarah Squire, Chairman of Squire’s Garden Centres.
