Blumilk’s Twelve Gifts for Christmas
This year, we all know Christmas is going to feel a little strange, so we thought we would lend a hand with twelve excellent gifts to add to your Christmas shopping list for that someone special that you can order or book from the comfort of the sofa. Hopefully, we might inspire you to keep it a little more local for 2020 and get some dates in the diary to make 2021 somewhat more appealing…
First up we have Wylam Brewery. Know someone that enjoys the perfect beer? How about getting them a set of beers or a gift voucher for the amazing Wylam Brewery? Founded in 2000 Wylam is a 30 Barrel Micro Brewery that resides at the Palace of Arts in Exhibition Park.
How about gifting the jazziest pants in town, whilst funding an amazing charity at the same time? With over 300 unique underwear designs, they have something for everyone. Join the pants party and order your OddBalls today!
Love pizza? Need another lockdown activity? Gilchesters has you covered! Gilchesters has a great range of gift boxes from Bread Making Boxes to New Beginning Kits for the newbies to baking. Our favourite is the Pizza Gift Box which features a pizza stone and the ingredients for the perfect home-cooked pizza base.
Towering 150 feet above the coast with outstanding sea views, nine acres of unique Northumberland to explore and a history dating back thousands of years, perhaps a ticket to the amazing Bamburgh Castle could be the ideal gift this year?
We’re sure our Geordie following all know that Barbour is based in the North East, so it’s the perfect excuse for shopping luxury and local this year, plus there’s a chance we will be spending all our weekends wandering National Trust gardens again next year, so the outdoor wear is honestly a win-win gift!
Nestled in the treetops, experience a cosy lunch or dinner by a roaring log fire surrounded by twinkling lights. With hand-crafted furniture, excellent service and notoriously good food, there is no better place than The Alnwick Garden Treehouse Restaurant. We know we wouldn’t mind receiving a gift voucher for a date night here.
Can’t wait for live music again after 2020? How about booking an event at Utilita Arena? For an extra treat, have a look at their hospitality packages which include access to a VIP Members Lounge with food and private bar, sounds like an evening they won’t forget.
For the person that already has everything, what about a donation to a charity in their honour? Here at Blumilk we work with amazing charities such as Tiny Lives and Great North Air Ambulance who would both make excellent candidates for a donation. Tiny Lives support premature and sick newborn babies and their families at the RVI Hospital in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. The Great North Air Ambulance Service (GNAAS) brings pioneering pre-hospital care to the scene, rescuing hundreds of severely injured or ill patients every year.
A North East coastal break with all the family? Yes please. Modern, self catering caravans are available to hire for your holiday in either South Shields or Cresswell with Northumbrian Leisure. The holiday parks are in two picture-perfect locations and a trip away is the foolproof surprise for anyone needing a pick-me-up next year.
Still looking through our ultimate gifts for Christmas? After a tough 2020…how about treating your loved one to a night away? A Sunday night stay in Hotel Du Vin, a three course dinner, a glass of fizz and a full breakfast? Sounds heavenly.
One for the adventure seeker! Durham Climbing Centre is one of the largest dedicated bouldering centres in the UK. They cater for every level of climber from beginner to pro so this could be a great one to tire out the kids. You can book block Rock Star lessons via their website.
Foodie on your Christmas list? No problem! How does a voucher for an afternoon tea in a rooftop restaurant overlooking the River Tyne sound? Delicious? Thought so. Have a look at the vouchers available on SIX Baltic’s website.
We hope you like our ideas for gifts for Christmas!
