Harrogate Christmas Gift Guide

By Victoria Turner– 16th November 2020

Now more than ever we are realising the importance of shopping local and shopping thoughtfully. However, it can be quite hard to do this in practice. That’s why I’ve listed some of my favourite Harrogate Independents to help you shop small this Christmas.

Let’s make amazing memories


Yorkshire Heart
Tim & Georgina run the vineyard just a few miles from Harrogate & York. Not only can you order their wine and beers online you can also visit the vineyard and brewery for a tour. In the summer months, why not take advantage of afternoon tea amongst the vines. A perfect day date.

Leafy Couture
I can’t recommend Sarah enough – I love her and her flowers! So why not order a luxury wreath kit to bring a few hours of calm to your day. This is perfect to bring a bit of Christmas sparkle to your front door. Even better, get a few friends to order it and craft the night away together, on zoom of course, with a gin!

Live for Today
With over 20 Exciting Outdoor Activities across Leeds, York, Harrogate, and Kendal, it’s great fun for all the family. Why not buy a voucher to use in the new year. I highly recommend Axe Throwing or one of their escape rooms at Ripley Castle.

A magical Christmas


The Harrogate Hamper
This newly created local Hamper company offers a selection of locally produced goodies. The Harrogate Hamper is the perfect gift to pop under your tree this Christmas.

Butterfly Kisses
Kaye is a local shop owner and when Lockdown 2.0 happened she decided to take her gorgeous shop online. Get ready for a treasure trove of gifts and home accessories like you’ve never seen before!! There really IS something for everyone… and every occasion!

Offering a blend of products that work together to help solve some of life’s problems such as sleep, stress, anxiety, fatigue, and general wellbeing.

Fat Badger night
The Fat Badger in Harrogate is the embodiment of the Old English character associated with a traditional British pub. It’s the place to be for a good steak and a great ale! Why not treat someone to a gift voucher to use at one of their Beer club nights.
