Unless you are super organised you probably still have a few people on your list to buy presents for – and there’s only a few days to go before Christmas.
So here are a few ideas for last minute gift ideas from our business members to help you buy local this Christmas:
Park & Bridge independent neighbourhood wine store on Churchfield Road Acton W3 was recently featured in The Telegraph Weekend section and stocks a number of wines on the recommended Christmas wine lists from The Telegraph and The Times columnists. During December Park + Bridge is also open on Mondays and has extended opening hours see http://parkandbridge.com/christmas-new-year-opening-times/ Park + Bridge can create a bespoke hamper, suggest The Churchfield selection box and also have a range of glassware and other food and drink gift ideas.
