Christmas gifts for everyone
Filed under Christmas
Just hear those sleigh bells ringing! Christmas is just around the corner and it’s time to really get into the festive spirit and get that gift list well and truly underway. We’ve got plenty of ideas for presents for glamorous aunts, fussy uncles, the family prankster, kids, masterchefs, gardeners and more.

Check out our round-up and a sneaky peek into what our staff have already chosen for their nearest and dearest.

  Perfect for kids

We have a magical festive book in store this year, called The Lost Elf, in which Buddy hunts for a family to spend Christmas with. It's the perfect bedtime story in the run-up to the big day. Plus, you could really bring the story to life with one of our sweet little plush elves (see below!). Other wonderful presents for children include Gifts in a Tin, such as Sew Me Up Bunny or Sew Me Up Owl, or how about a Tea Party or Card-Making set? For older children, our stunning Pomme-Pidou money boxes (pictured left) would make a wonderful and colourful keepsake. For the remainder of the school holidays, they’ll find hours of entertainment with our Kids’ Scavenger Hunt (£12.99) and Kids’ Charades (£12.99).


What I've bought for Christmas: Liz Dowling, Brand Manager

‘I couldn’t resist these two little elves (left, £2.99 each) for my niece and nephew’s Christmas stockings. I’ve also bought my sister a lovely natural heart-shaped decoration and of course I couldn’t resist buying myself something too – a beautiful metal windowsill ornament which is backlit by candles and the light shines through the cut-out stars.’ 


  Perfect for her 

Have you seen our gorgeous Earth Squared wool and tweed bags, purses, scarves and gloves in mulberry and claret (pictured left)? Prices start from £7.99 for a purse, up to £36.99 for a bag. Our Dartington vases in stunning jewel colours make a real statement and start at £13.99. Braintree socks are currently 3 for £12 for Millbrook family members*, or £4.99 each. To brighten up bathrooms, our Heathcote and Ivory Braids and Blooms Soap Flowers are so pretty – they’re £11.99. 

  What I've bought for Christmas: Tammy Woodhouse, Managing Director

‘We are gathering a collection of Gonks (pictured left) – I’ve just added 2 more to those that we bought a couple of years ago. We like to keep them out until the clocks change to add some cheer to the winter months! I have also bought one of the lovely tweed handbags (see above) and matching gloves as a Christmas pressie for my friend.’

  Perfect for him

Has the man in your life had the same wash bag forever? Time to get him a smart new one – we have a handsome selection themed by sports. How about putting together a hamper for him with maybe some fun beer like the Spirit of Christmas set (pictured left), a mug, chocolate spanner, wash bag and gardener’s soap

  What I've bought for Christmas: Julia Lane, Crowborough Centre Shop Assistant

‘I’ve bought my Dad Gino’s Italian Escape – A Taste of the Sun (£5.99) cookery book as he loves Italian food. I’ve bought my fiancé a Love you to the Moon and Back crescent-shaped coin tray (£6.99) and a wooden heart with the same message on it. I’ve also bought my mum a selection of DVDs.’

  Perfect for gardeners

There is so much in-store that would make a gardener’s face light up! Seeds, tools, watering cans, gloves, kneelers, to name just a few and, of course, plants. Few say Christmas quite like a poinsettia. With their bright red and green foliage they're perfect for Christmas displays and table centrepieces. If you look after them (we stock a handy poinsettia drip feeder), they can still look stunning until March. Our Christmas roses (Hellebores) or hyacinth baskets make an ideal present, especially when gift-wrapped. Plus, don’t miss our Christmas planted containers for both indoors and outdoors.

  Perfect stocking-fillers

Stockings are all about fun! Whatever age the recipient, we’ve got something for everyone. For adults, liqueur chocolates are always a good bet, while for older children The Ultimate Selfie Kit is a great idea for just £3.99. For kids there’s a whole range of fun sweets from gourmet lollipops to giant chocolate sterling notes along with our magic 3D Christmas glasses and fun Emoji range, they're sure to raise a smile.

If you’ve ever received a hamper, you’ll understand the joy of rummaging through the box, uncovering delight after
delight. They’re often items you wouldn’t necessarily buy for yourself, so they’re great to receive as gifts. We have some lovely hampers in stock such as a The Honey Hamper, We all love Ginger Hamper (pictured left), chocolate hamper, chutneys and jams hamper and even non-food varieties such as a bird-feeding hamper. There’s lots of wonderful biscuits, sweets, cakes, spreads and treats, so why not ask our friendly staff to make you up a bespoke hamper with the goodies of your choice, so you can choose someone’s perfect selection?
      Gift wrap
Kids’ presents can be huge, can’t they?! So for these special presents, you’ll need huge special gift wrap. We stock some wonderful extra wide gift wrap (9m x 99cm approx.) for just £4.99. Plus, if you’re a Millbrook family member* you can get 3 for 2 mix and match on cards, wrap and gift tags.

  Join the Millbrook family and Refer a Friend

The Millbrook family is all about us spoiling our valued customers with a whole host of personal benefits, rewards (such as the ones mentioned above) and surprises. Plus, if you refer a friend and they decide to join the Millbrook family too, we'll give you BOTH a £5 voucher* to spend in store. A lovely little Christmas bonus!

*Excludes giftcard and café purchases. Email address must be provided.
