Christmas Gift Guide
It might feel like Christmas is still some time away, but it’s never too early to start planning your gifts.
If you’re bored of giving the same old pair of socks or bottle of bubble bath, why not consider a gift experience which can be treasured throughout the year, rather than ending up stuffed in a drawer by January?
We’ve created our annual Christmas Gift Guide to hopefully give some much needed present inspiration; take a look at some of our top picks below.
A Spa Day at Bank House Malvern View Spa
The Bank House Hotel Malvern View Spa is an oasis of relaxation and indulgence. With stunning panoramic views towards the Malvern Hills, guests can unwind in the indoor swimming pool, sun terrace and Thermal Suite. The spa offers various levels of membership as well as day packages and overnight stays, so there’s something to suit everyone.
Beauty Treatments at The Sanctuary at Holloways
If your loved one is in need of a little New Year pick-me-up, why not book a beauty treatment for them at The Sanctuary at Holloways? Nestled in a stunning location in Suckley, the team offers a whole host of treatments from massages and facials to pedicures and lash extensions, so you can book the perfect pick-me-up in the New Year.
Come the end of January when the weather is still miserable, the New Year diet has gone out the window and the party season is a distant memory, a voucher for Afternoon Tea could be very much appreciated. There are plenty of locations in Worcestershire to choose from, but our picks include Brockencote Hall, Stanbrook Abbey Hotel and the Laura Ashley Tea Room at Southcrest Manor Hotel.
WCCC Junior Membership
Are the kids into sport? Then how about getting them Junior Membership at Worcestershire County Cricket Club? For £20, cricket fans aged 17 and under can gain access to all home Vitality Blast T20 group matches, all home County Championship matches and all home Royal London One-Day Cup group matches.
The Commandery Membership
If your little ones are more interested in history, encourage them to learn all about the Faithful City with Commandery membership. An annual ticket is included in the price of membership as well as discounts, access to events and other benefits. Family membership is also available so make it something to enjoy together.
A Trip to a Farm Park
A day out at a farm park can be something the whole family can enjoy. A spring time visit can be especially worthwhile, with the chance to see new born animals, bottle feed lambs and cuddle day-old chicks. Why not purchase a family pass to Little Owl Farm Park, Attwell Farm Park or All Things Wild?
A Gtech Electric Bike
Worcestershire has some of the most beautiful scenery in the country, so how better to explore it (and get fit at the same time), than by bicycle? Local company Gtech manufactures and sells a range of electric bikes suitable for both city and country. The electric feature uses a battery to power the motor helping with riding over different types of terrain.
National Trust Membership
If you want to gift something that will last until next Christmas, how about an annual National Trust or English Heritage pass? There are lots of properties to enjoy around Worcestershire (and beyond), including Croome, The Fleece Inn, and The Firs: Elgar’s Birthplace (one of the newest NT properties), so this is certainly something that can be enjoyed again and again.
Becketts Farm Cookery School vouchers make a great present for those who enjoy discovering new food and cookery skills. Led by a team of expert chefs, there are over 15 different courses to choose from, exploring a wide range of cuisines. Shared workstations make a lovely gift for a couple to share together and are a wonderful evening out to look forward to in the New Year!
