Fred Aldous' 2023 Gift Guide
Tis the season, already. Seems like only yesterday we were soaking up the summer rays, and now, here we are, gearing up for the old festive runaround. The woolly gloves are out, tubs of celebrations have started appearing at work, we're pondering where to put the Christmas tree and Morus can't wait to start playing Mariah Carey.
Let's face it, some of us could pass for Santas elves – gifts sorted, wrapped, and tucked away while the summer sun's still shining. The rest of us? Well, we might need a nudge in the right direction.
Not to worry. Our team of artists and craft connoisseurs have put their heads together to cook up a list of top-tier pressies. Seems logical we start with gift ideas, from our gift shop. Take a look...
Whether you’re raising the next big thing in the art world or just looking to restock your loved ones' paint palette, we've got just the ticket. Our Art shop has everything for the creatively inclined – brimming with all sorts of bits and bobs that'll have your resident artists, big or small, grinning from ear to ear as they unwrap inspiration on the big day.
Well, folks, it's officially the time to celebrate the great indoors. What better way to ward off the winter woes than taking up a new craft, with hot chocolate in hand. Whether you're just dipping your toes into the DIY waters or you're a seasoned hand at making magic from scratch, we've got you covered.
Earlier on, we let slip about our plan to hibernate with a new craft until winter finally thaws. But if crafts aren't your thing, don't worry. Why not take on one of our model kits? Put together your very own miniature battalion ready to take on the world, or better yet, a fleet of Star Destroyers that'll give Darth Vader a run for his money. Time to roll up those sleeves and play god with glue and plastic.
Saving the best for last – when it comes to heartfelt gifts, nothing really tops something knitted with a whole lot of love. Woolly hats and blankets are like a warm hug from you to your loved one on a nippy day. Swing by our haberdashery shop and you’ll find all the makings of the cosiest gifts. Gifting the old-fashioned way – one stitch at a time.
