Cornish Christmas Gift Guide

If you’re on the hunt for Christmas gift inspiration in Cornwall, we’ve compiled a list as extensive as Santa’s beard. Explore options ranging from delectable cakes, fine spirits, and aromatic coffee, to exquisite candles, beautiful jewellery, and stylish homeware. Embrace the spirit of the season by championing local businesses and delight someone special this festive season.

The Cove Bathing Co

A gift from The Cove Bathing Co’s collection is guaranteed to be the most delicious smelling present in the stocking. From bath salts to body oils and scrubs, all products are handmade in Grampound Road, by founder Bianca, and use aromatherapy oils to help ease stress, boost mood, and energise.

The Cornwall Candle Co

The ultimate Christmas gift idea – candles are a total crowd-pleaser. These individually hand-poured soy wax candles are created by Anna on The Lizard peninsula.

Fully sustainable, hand-crafted in small batches, with a range of botanical scents to choose from, all candles are cruelty-free and vegan-friendly, featuring pure essential oils.

Badger & Birch

For sustainable homeware gift ideas in Cornwall, we’d recommend checking out Badger and Birch. Created by designer Hazel, in her home-based studio in Falmouth, her range of trinkets feature a gorgeous, terrazzo surface design made from recycled materials such as plastics, old fishing nets, oysters, and scallop shells. An eye-catching addition to any eco-conscious home.

Freda’s Peanut Butter

Your friends and family will go nuts for a jar of Freda’s peanut butter this Christmas. Born from an adventure around New Zealand in a campervan named Freda, peanut butter-lovers Lisa and Andrew were inspired by the range of artisan brands they uncovered on their travels.

Choose from a jar of their signature Smooth Original, or experiment with their alternative flavours, from Rich Chocolate & Vanilla, to Chipotle Chilli or Toasted Coconut.

Ladyvale Bakery

For bespoke cakes in stunning colours and impressive designs, check out Ladyvale’s Bakery in Newquay.

Independently run by local baker Lara and her husband David, their shop in Nansledan is a hit with locals and new visitors to Cornwall. From cookies and cupcakes, to showstopper bakes, there’s something for every taste.


If you’re shopping for clothing this Christmas, support local, sustainable fashion, and browse Hager-Vor’s line of ocean-inspired attire for adults and kids.

Hager-Vor (meaning ‘rough sea’ in Cornish), have been designing t-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies, and hats, with clean designs sketched out on stomps around the cliffs and coastlines of Kernow.

Atlantic Blankets

A cosy, luxurious gift, Atlantic Blankets are a staple for any coastal home. Choose from decadent wool throws, to picnic blankets perfect for sunset evenings at the beach.

Quality and care runs through every stitch of this family-run business in Cornwall.

The Cornish Cheese Co

Cheese and Christmas go hand in hand, and whilst it may be one of the more pungent present ideas on our Cornish gift list, it’s one we know will go down a storm with the foodies in your life!

The cheesemakers at the Cornish Cheese Co know their stuff, and have been making top quality Cornish cheddar, blue, yarg and brie at their farm on Bodmin Moor since 2001.
