For any gift-buying-guide our first point of call is always the wonderful Mirabella by Elizabeth Burry. Based on the shores of Trinity Bay, this store has some fantastic present options, all of which can be purchased from the comfort of your own home through their online store.
Our top picks from Mirabella include their beautiful hand-crafted jewellery;
Elizabeth’s delicious collection of teas, each named after a local town or area to add a little extra charm to your cup. Why not get a collection of home-made teas for your loved ones?
Next we head to the Green Family Forge, and Cooperage based in the historic town of Trinity, and available online through the Trinity Historical Society’s online shop here.
Check out some of the wonderful things on offer including hand-made wooden spatulas or beautiful key rings and hooks made in the traditional forge by skilled blacksmiths.
If you’re lucky enough to be in St John’s this Christmas, why not head to the Craft Council on Duckworth Street to see some of the beautiful things they have to sell both in their Craft Shop and Gallery?
You should also head to Quidi Vidi to see the beautiful Village Plantation that houses a number of talented artists, with items being made right before your eyes. How about a beautiful bag or mug, or a hand-printed tea-towel as a smaller gift, perfect for a Secret Santa!
Finally, this guide would be incomplete without mentioning Aunt Sarah’s Chocolates. For a more decadent gift that will go over a treat with the whole family on Christmas eve, or as a scrumptious after dinner snack for two, Aunt Sarah’s online shop is now offering a 15 or 30 piece Chocolate Gift Box that can be delivered straight to your home.
Whether you are looking for that something special for that someone special, an impressive craft, or a delicious treat, this guide will help you find something for everyone this Yuletide season.
