While we may not have the best weather in the world, we certainly have some of the most beautiful Countryside here in Great Britain, from the lush fields and rolling hills, to lively rivers, streams and lakes; you have to appreciate its beauty whether you are an ‘outdoorsy’ person or not.
For those that are lucky enough to live in the countryside, you can fill your senses on a daily basis just by opening your front door.
For those that live in a City or Town, you just need to be a little more creative and enjoy the British countryside though the vast ranges of country gifts that are now available for us to enjoy in our homes.
Items inspired by nature, sporting themes and wildlife, bring a touch of the countryside into your home, and will brighten up any rainy afternoon.
Country gifts such as kitchenware, home accessories and tableware are a great way to add a subtle hint of the outdoors into your home.
This stunning Salmon Oval Plate is a great example. It features beautiful artwork by Richard Bramble and is made from a high quality, hard-wearing porcelain.
At 39cm x 26cm, this plate is large enough to use as a serving platter and would make a delightful addition to your afternoon tea table.
Need something to brighten up your lounge our bedroom? Then take a look at this lovely cushion, by Evans Lichfield.
Made from 100% Belgian tapestry and featuring a beautiful Pug puppy design, this cushion would make an excellent country gift for any household.
A novelty milk jug such as this Jersey Cow Jug by Quail Ceramics makes a charming addition to your breakfast table and is a great way to add a little humour to your kitchen.
Made of fine china, this milk jug bears the Q stamp of quail and comes complete in its own presentation box, making it a perfect country gift.
