At this time of year, Christmas consumes us, and other important dates such as birthdays and anniversaries seem to take a back seat. I always feel sorry for those who celebrate their birthday during the Christmas period, as their special day is swallowed up amongst the festivities, and many of us choose to give them a “double” gift to cover both Christmas and their birthday.
So making an extra special effort this year, I am determined to treat my friends and family members to both a Christmas and Birthday present, and now that the mad rush for Christmas gifts is over, I can concentrate on beautiful birthday gifts instead.
Growing up in the great British countryside, both my friends and family members love the outdoors, country sports and the beautiful wildlife that can be found amongst our shores, so choosing a country themed gift is always a good place to start.
Country gifts for the home such as fine china, cushions, photo frames and bronze sculptures are always popular with the Ladies, and with such as huge range to choose from, finding something to suit every taste is easy.
A personal favourite of mine, and something I am sure my sister-in-law is going to love, is the Cast Bronze Stag Sculpture by David Geenty. A stunning piece, it stands 23cm high and shows every feature of this beautiful creature.
A wonderful country gift for any home, this gorgeous sculpture will stand proudly on any mantelpiece or bookshelf, and complements both traditional and modern interiors.
For the Horse rider, racer or enthusiast, our stunning Belgium tapestry cushions make fantastic gifts for every occasion. Available in a range of different colours and designs, these high quality cushions look great in the living room, bedroom or even a traditional country kitchen, and are perfect for resting a weary head after a day at the races!
A country gift for the fishing fan perhaps, our Silver Plated photo frame with a Salmon emblem by the English Pewter Company looks great on every shelf. Photo frames make wonderful gifts, especially if they are personalised with a nice photo, and those in the English Pewter collection come complete with a stylish presentation box.
Country ties, fishing rods and equipment, books, fine china, and a range of other beautiful items feature in our country gift collection, so treat those birthday boys and girls to something extra special this Christmas!
