Derbyshire isn’t short of impressive local products, so if you know someone that likes their presents to be unique, we think these would make for perfect gifts- in stockings of all shapes and sizes!

So, here’re a handful of local Christmas gift ideas that we love:

Unique Ceramics by Clare Gage

Clare Gage is a Derbyshire-based ceramicist, who has had a life-long love affair with both textiles and ceramics. These have come together to create a collection that would be impossible not to treasure- a perfect and personal locally made Christmas gift!

You can grab a Clare Gage Button Cup or Cup & Saucer for just £26! Last Date to order is 20th.


Wine Made in Belper!

The chances are that you know someone who loves wine, and so you’ve always got the fall-back present of a nice bottle. BUT, have you ever thought of getting them a bottle of English Wine? Believe it or not, there is a vineyard here in Derbyshire. Belper, in fact!

This wine is £15 per bottle.
