A Welsh Christmas Gift Guide 2015

This is the first in a little series of Christmas Gift Guides I have planned. I love Christmas and I really enjoy thinking about that something unique and special to buy my loved ones. As we are in Wales I thought I would put together a little list of locally sourced gifts you could give that special Welsh person in your life!


  1. Valley Mill – they make so many fab welsh gifts but this Bara Brith flavoured wax melt is amazing!
  2. Why not treat someone to tickets to a show at The Sherman Cymru ?
  3. Welsh Lady Preserves – who wouldn’t love a jar of Welsh Jam in their Christmas Hamper this year?
  4. A Spa Treat – for a really special gift treat someone to a spa treatment or experience. The Celtic Manor, Laguna and Hilton are all ones that I would recommend.
  5. These woodback snap back mobile phone and tablet cases from Cover-Up are created from sustainably sourced wood and made in Bridgend.
  6. Gauci Candles – these fabulous organic candles are handmade and they even have a ‘Cardiff’ range!
  7. Pop these yummy welsh cakes from Fabulous Welshcakes in someone’s stocking or christmas hamper. My favourites are the chocolate chip ones!

Disclosure – this post contains references to PR samples I have received.

    I’ve never heard of chocolate chip welsh cakes!! Must try those. Do you know if they’re readily available at supermarkets across the UK? I’ve never seen anything other than plain ones..

    I love going to the Spa especially having massages and relaxing in the pool. The jam looks good too!
