Discover our Northumberland Gift Guide
It’s not too early to be thinking of holiday gifts. By shopping early it can help you budget, and you have plenty of time to find out what is on offer locally
For your stylish sister
No one does homeware like Susi Bellamy, maximalist style combined with high-quality materials and fabrics can add a touch of luxury to every home. This holiday season you can give a little luxury with their sumptuous velvet cosmetics bag finished with a gold zip. They’re as practical as they are striking. (12 designs available, £60)
For your organised friend
You could be mistaken into thinking Berwick-based Pith are straight out of Scandinavia with their minimalist design, high quality and super-cool products but they’re based right here in the North East, and are available at selected retailers and online. Our top pick for this holiday season is their 2023 diary, perfect for the person who has everything and available in multiple sizes. (198 x 129 mm, £21.99)
For the person who has everything
What to get the person who has everything? Cheese of course! With lots of different hampers, gift boxes and even a cheese afternoon tea, the Northumberland Cheese Company has you covered for that person who has everything. Based in Blagdon and delivering nationwide. (Starting from £13.50)
For the coffee lover in your life
Northumberland-based Caribe Coffee brings a taste of Central America to our shores with bold flavours and ethical practices. This family business is going from strength to strength, and you might have even spotted them on Dragon’s Den! With everything from sample bags to hampers and subscriptions, there’s something for every budget. (Prices start at £4.50)
For The Person Who Has Their Head In The Clouds
‘I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream,’ Vincent van Gogh, 1853–1890.
There’s no better place to stargaze than Europe's largest protected dark skies park, Kielder Observatory. Their events run most evenings throughout the year so there’s plenty to choose from! If you’ve not visited before, choosing an event can be a bit bewildering, but they host good all-rounder events such as Aurora Night, Origins of the Universe or The Secret Life of Stars which are aimed at all levels of knowledge and experience. (Tickets from £24)
