Christmas Gift Ideas 2012

It’s not always easy to find presents when you buy for the same people every year, and personally I find it almost impossible to buy for the male members in my family who never seem to have any ideas of what they want! Shops are full of gifts and sets at this time of year, and we have a wide range of products online to help you out. There are obvious choices from big brands such Barbour, Musto, Dubarry and Schoffel, so here we will look at some of the other products available online.

Cleaning Kits

Anyone who takes an interest in the shooting field will know the importance of maintaining a clean gun. There are a number of different parts that need to be cleaned in different ways, and having a cleaning kit which holds everything will make this a lot easier. If you don’t want or need to buy a full set you can still buy individual items here. Perfect for the man (or woman) outdoors.

 Hip Flasks

A great accessory to take out onto the field, a range of stainless steel, leather finished hip flasks from Marlborough and Dubarry make a great gift idea. With different styles and colours available, you could also add a set of nip cups too.

Jam Making sets & equipment

Thanks to a rise in popular TV baking programmes, more and more people are going back to making things from scratch, and there has been an increase in jam making and preserving. With the necessary products more accessible than ever, it couldn’t be easier for people to try to make their own jams and chutneys. Kilner jars are still some of the most popular and trusted on the market, but you can also get a good range of jars and accessories from Leifheit. For more information, please see our blog on The Art of Jam Making & Preserving.

Cufflinks, Ties & Braces

To complete any outfit it is all about the small added touches. Sax is one of the biggest range of accessories we stock, with the country gentleman in mind. Particularly popular are their range of Sax Country printed silk ties which feature different bird and animal designs.

Hunter Wellies and Liners

Hunter are known for producing not only functional, technical wellies, but also fashionable wellies and liners. Popular with people of all ages, Hunter are as often seen on the high street as they are at festivals or in the countryside. The original tall boot will fit most people, however they also do a Huntress size for ladies which gives extra calf room, and there is an adjustable boot for both men and women, as well as a short size.

Barbecue Accessories

Okay, so it may not be barbecue season, but a range of barbecue accessories will definitely get you excited about the summer! From flavoured wood for cooking meat, to grilling baskets, roasting and pizza pans – barbecue accessories have definitely evolved. Big brand Weber do one of the biggest ranges of accessories, however to see our range of all things BBQ please click here.

Of course this is just a sample of what we offer online, and with a wide range of stock available we hope you are able to find the perfect gift.
