Christmas at Highgrove!




It was a festive night at the Highgrove shop Christmas launch event in Bath last Monday night. We were able to preview all their new luxury Christmas gifts and really felt in the true British Christmas spirit!
One thing I do have to highlight are the stunning Christmas decorations dressing the shop, designed by Shane Connolly himself. Shane Connolly designed the flowers for the Royal wedding! You must go and take a look, his garlands and window display are beautiful!
There is something for everyone in the Highgrove shop and all gifts are hand made by skilled craftspeople. Everything caught my eye and I walked around the shop over and over again finding gifts for all the family, but as usual I am always attracted to anything I can wear. I do however have a small candle obsession and the cinnamon and spice candle they had burning in the shop smelt amazing. They also sell a diffuser, potpourri and a room spray of the same smell…….yummy!

Here are my top picks below:

They sell beautiful cashmere socks (Knitted in Scotland) in different colours as seen in the photo below which you can buy with or without a cosy knitted hot water bottle cover which I also love.
 
They also do Corgi long wool blend socks (‘using traditional hand manufactured methods dating back to 1892, Corgi were the first company granted a Royal Warrant of Appointment’) They are great for wellies and the Christmassy Fair isle ones for curling up in front of the fire.
The jewellery is unique and beautifully handmade including little bumble bees inspired by the English country garden (handmade in Somerset) and Wren birds which are a frequent visitor to the English garden (handmade in Sussex). Prices do range, whether you have a ribbon tie or a silver chain, bracelet or earrings.


Don’t forget to grab yourself a cinnamon and spice Highgrove candle, it smells amazing! My house is already feeling Christmassy! Also add a traditional Highgrove hanging tree decoration to your collection, I have the red robin. You must take a look at The Highgrove shop website, I love the way each item has a brief description of where and how it was made making each item unique and special.

So go on you too can spend a traditional Christmas at Highgrove!




Happy Shopping!
