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:

You can grab a Clare Gage Button Cup or Cup & Saucer for just £26! Last Date to order is 20th.
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.
Peak Ales are a Bakewell-based brewery, that can make you your very own personalised bottle of their beer. This would be the perfect opportunity to immortalise all of those in-jokes that will make you laugh until you cry!
