65Days to go

As that time of year rolled around again, the Christmas fairies put together some inspired gift ideas from their pick of the best new stallholders of 2017. Trying to find unique, thoughtful and original gifts to surprise your loved ones is always a challenge, but with more than 60 new chalets at the Market last year, present-buying needn’t have been a struggle!

For Him

Wolfe Academy – For blokes, you really can’t go wrong with clothes. Local independent clothing brand Wolfe Academy will be selling apparel and accessories for those inspired by the great outdoors.

Flavourmagic – If he’s a keen cook or a fan of spicy food, pop to Flavourmagic for all manner of fiery spice blend gift boxes, seasonings and salt infusions.

For Her

Honey Willow – For beautiful jewellery that goes above and beyond the usual, visit Honey Willow for personalised gold and silver pieces. From name-engraved necklaces to birthstone rings, each piece will be a meaningful gift.

For Gran
