Christmas Markets and Fairs
Wander between pretty market stalls, pause to buy a hot chocolate or a piece of gingerbread, listen to the sound of carols being sung nearby - what could be a lovelier start to the festive season than a trip to a traditional Christmas market? Don't miss the delights of Salisbury Christmas Fayre which runs from 30 November to 24 December this year. There will be a host of wooden chalets in Salisbury's Market Place selling traditional festive foods to hand-crafted gifts. And there are other smaller Christmas markets taking place across Wiltshire this year, such as the Roves Farm Christmas Craft & Food Fair on 16 and 17 November.

Have a look at when the Christmas lights will be switched on in Wiltshire to find out more.

Make your own Gifts
Getting ready for Christmas doesn't have to mean Christmas shopping. If you would prefer to avoid the shops this year, why not consider giving your nearest and dearest handmade presents? Have a look at the programme of upcoming Christmas workshops at Arundells to learn how to make candles, crocheted snowflakes or Christmas wreaths. Or there's still time to book yourself onto a course at one of the high quality cookery schools in Wiltshire where you can find out how to make some delicious festive food and drink, sure to go down well as a handmade Christmas present. 

Experiences and Gift Vouchers
We all have those friends who are hard to buy presents for! For those difficult customers, consider buying a gift voucher or an experience instead of a physical Christmas present. Gift them an afternoon tea at a lovely local cafe or tea room, or an indulgent treatment at a sumptuous spa. Thrillseekers will be over the moon with a skydiving experience from Skydive Netheravon or Go Skydive, while more cerebrial types will enjoy peacefully floating through the clouds on a hot air balloon ride from Aerosaurus Balloons

And if you're planning to head to Wiltshire for a Christmas shopping trip this November or December, have a look at our accommodation pages for some inspiration and ideas on where to stay.
