So before you go rushing off to other towns or dare I say the internet to do your Christmas shopping this year have a look at what's on offer right here in Lichfield.
Trust me if you look hard enough you will find everything you need here's just a few ideas to get you started..........
With just 6 weeks to go it’s time to order your fresh turkey or other meats from local producers at Packington Moor Farm Shop They also offer food hampers and home made jars of all sorts of goodies. You can also order your fresh produce and vegetables and collect on Christmas Eve to make sure you have everything you need.
Charity Christmas cards are in abundance at The Plant Plot and they have unusual decorations for you to choose from too. Potted trees will be available from 15th November and fresh cut trees will be there from 25th November. Please ring to check availability. Grab a refreshing cup of tea in The Pantry & some home made cake to keep you going.
Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without some delicious mince pies from Hindleys Bakery & Cafe please pre-order to avoid disappointment and if you haven’t had time to make a cake this year you can get one of those too!
Have you seen the selection of gifts they have in the delightful Room to Inspire? There is something to suit every pocket and for the family member who has everything!
Do you have a new baby or small child to buy for? Try Mooch Kids for quality clothing and wooden toys with a twist.
Is there a budding chef in your house? The Kitchen Shop, have all sorts of gadgets & goodies to delight the novice or experienced chef and they also have an upstairs showroom of glassware and home-wares so don’t miss this!
How about supporting a children's charity and getting a FREE photo shoot? Image Inn are aiming to raise money for Clic Sargent and are offering you the opportunity to take part in their quest. This would make an unusual gift for that person who has everything!
Don’t forget to order your Christmas table decorations, mistletoe and wreaths from Ivison the Lichfield Florist where they make all their own displays. If you have a relative who lives in another part of the Country and who would love to receive a floral arrangement this year, don’t forget they are linked to Interflora.
If all this shopping has made you thirsty ‘pop’ in to The Spark Lichfield for a quick bite to eat and a delicious coffee!
Make sure you are not seen in the same party outfit at this years Xmas ‘do’ and try Cure in Bore Street for a designer dress to knock ‘em dead this year. They are helping you get what you want this year as well so don’t forget to leave a ‘wish’ on their tree & send your partner in to do the rest! Great ideas from the team at Cure.
Hats, scarves and gloves are always a favourite stocking filler and Louise at Dame Oliver's has loads to choose from. She also has a delight of jewellery that will suit all ages as well as sparkly tops and smart trousers to see you through the festive season.
For home-wares and gift ideas don’t forget the Arthur Price Factory Shop they do really have something for everyone.
Stuck for the person who has everything then what about a gift voucher from Obsession Salon & Spa You can treat them to vouchers for a spa session including facials, massage or just their nails! Or how about treating your partner to a new hair style to go with that party outfit for new year.
If you haven’t got time for your gift shopping this year or can’t make it around all the fantastic retailers we have here, why not chat to Pam from Mission Accomplished She’s on hand to help you with your shopping or gift ideas or in fact help you clear out the garage or loft ready for the next lot of presents to descend.
