In Christmas

Christmas in Wiltshire

We know what it’s like, there’s always someone in your family who’s tricky to buy for. In previous years we’ve written articles on some unique gift ideas for Christmas and we are doing the same again this year. So here we have it (and don’t forget to let us know if you have any other suggestions as well).

Salisbury Plain Safaris

Go off-roading on Salisbury Plain

Whether on a nature tour with Salisbury Plain Safaris or an adrenalin-filled exploration with Stonehenge ATV – we have two very different ways of exploring the vast wilderness that is Salisbury Plain. A fascinating way to explore an area of Wiltshire that’s remote and often undiscovered.

Wild Wiltshire

Discover Wild Wiltshire

Wiltshire Wildlife Trust has compiled a beautiful new book entitled ‘Wild Wiltshire’ which showcases some of the county’s outstanding landscapes and the wildlife that lives in them. The book retails at £20 and is full of stunning images (such as the Avebury picture above) taken by local photographers and is available to buy via the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust website.

Hire a classic car for your loved one

Want to impress someone? How about hiring one of Vintage Classics’ vehicles. Their latest addition to the fleet is the Aston Martin DB7 Volante (have a read of Emma’s blog on her trip around the county in it here) or you could opt for the Alfa Romeo GTV or Jaguar E-Type.

Box Steam Brewery

Try some engineered beers from Box Steam Brewery

How about buying a gift set from Box Steam Brewery, Holt? This year’s Christmas brew is called ‘Bauble’ but you can also combine a set with some of the brewery’s more traditional brews including ‘Tunnel Vision’ or ‘Derail Ale’.

Create your own presents at Eastcott Studios

Whether you make something at one of the ceramic workshops or create your own piece of unique jewellery, Eastcott Studios in Swindon’s Old Town offers a variety of opportunities for you to make your own gifts.

Fisherton Mill jewellery

Buy artist-made gifts at Fisherton Mill

Browse the galleries at Salisbury's Fisherton Mill and uncover a treasure-trove of festive ideas including art, sculpture, handmade jewellery, handbags and stocking fillers.

Book a VIP experience at Longleat

Ever wanted to feed a lion or get up close to some of Longleat’s scaled creatures? Book a VIP experience and you can do just that. Keen photographers may also be interested in the Big Cat Photographic experience. There are a variety of different experiences with prices starting from just £60 per person. 

Made in Bradford on Avon

Head to Made in Bradford on Avon
