Local Christmas Present Ideas from Ginger and Pickles
Let’s be honest - Christmas shopping can be a nightmare. This year has been an absolute whirlwind and with Christmas shopping being a little more difficult it’s easy to get stressed when trying to find meaningful gifts for loved ones. There’s a lot of temptation to spend money on presents from the larger companies. This may seem cheap and convenient at the time but it comes with a flaw, it’s bad for the environment and doesn’t support the smaller businesses.
If you’re trying to do your bit this Christmas by supporting smaller and more local businesses, we’d love to welcome you to try G&P. We guarantee that all of our gifts are sustainably sourced, made in the UK and unique to Ginger and Pickles. With this in mind, we’ve compiled a list of gifts and a selection of hampers that we’ve recently released to help satisfy all your Christmas shopping needs! Have yourself a local Christmas this year and read on to find out how you can tick off the presents for all your loved ones this Christmas.

A SWEET TOOTH
There’s only so many times you can give a friend a box of Celebrations for Christmas. Show the one who has a sweet tooth some love by treating them to some locally made goodies or giving them the gift of our famous afternoon teas.
This smooth and creamy hot chocolate is created by local master chocolatiers and makes the perfect winter beverage for those cosy, curling up on the sofa kind of nights in. Our hot chocolate has a velvety texture that’s made to last until the very last sip. You can enjoy our gorgeous hot chocolate guilt-free in the knowledge that it is vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free and soya-free (but not calorie free hehe).
Give the gift of a Ginger and Pickles Afternoon Tea this Christmas! Why not buy a voucher for a friend or loved one so you can bring them along to enjoy the ultimate Afternoon Tea experience and if you’re feeling extra generous, you can upgrade your Afternoon Tea to have it with prosecco. Each Afternoon Tea comes with a hot drink of your choice and a gorgeous selection of freshly made sandwiches, cakes and treats. The perfect post Christmas treat!
Ideal for a loved one with a sweet tooth and a passion for chocolate, our no.1 winter warmer hamper is the perfect Christmas treat. The box comes with a bag of our G&P pure indulgence drinking chocolate and six home baked chocolate chip cookies, baked on the morning of dispatch so they’re as gooey and fresh as possible.

A HARD WORKING COOK
Buying something for that one friend who never stops cooking, or someone who takes pride in having a beautiful kitchen? We’ve got just the thing to add some G&P essentials to their space.
Any Ginger and Pickles fan will love this tea towel of either Ginger and Pickles Tarporley or Ginger and Pickles Nantwich. It’s printed on 100% cotton and designed by the daughter of the owners! They make a perfect addition to any home cook’s kitchen and they’re also sold individually to keep them as one-off and waste free as we can.
Our hand wash takes extra care of your hands. This liquid soap, infused with the relaxing and revitalising essential oils of lemongrass and basil will cleanse and naturally nourish your skin whilst taking pride of place in your kitchen. The lotion is gentle, lightweight and easily absorbed to help soften and soothe your skin. It’s also infused with lemongrass and basil essential oils, leaving your skin smelling beautiful and feeling revitalised.
This lotion is made in the Lake District from 100% natural ingredients and the bottle is made from biopolymer which is created using the waste of sugarcane. The renewable sugarcane captures CO2 from the atmosphere, helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions too. With this in mind, your loved one can enjoy this hand wash knowing that it’s brilliant for the environment!
A wonderful gift for a wine lover or a cook who deserves a treat. Halfpenny Green Wine Estate in South Staffordshire has produced award winning wines over the years to rival some of the best new and old world wines. All the wines in this gift pack are vegan friendly so you can enjoy your unique and beautiful wine knowing it’s from the best possible source.
Our wonderful gift pack is a celebration of their best sellers and contains three 375ml bottles of Penny Red, Penny Black (white wine) and English Rose wines.
This particular hamper is ideal for the hard working cooks who need a little appreciation and comes with a gorgeous set of G&P goodies. The Cook’s Hamper includes an oversized, organic cotton tea towel featuring original G&P artwork, lemongrass and basil Cook’s Hand Wash and our lightweight Cook’s Hand Lotion, specially crafted to soften and soothe the skin.

Perfect for a coffee connoisseur, this single origin espresso from Brazil is a well balanced espresso coffee with a subtle hint of red fruit sweetness with nutty notes. Our coffee is also roasted in small batches to achieve the depth of flavour only achieved by small, independent roasters. We’ve also decided that for every pack of coffee sold we will be donating a nutritious breakfast to the charity Magic Breakfast. No child should go without breakfast as it’s the most important meal of the day and is a vital component for succeeding in school. With this in mind, when purchasing a pack of ‘The Mary’ coffee you can have full knowledge that you’re playing a part in helping this very important charity.
