When purchasing a Country gift for a special friend, I always look for something that is not only appealing to the eye, but that is useful in the home. The ranges of gifts available at the Arundell arms online shop are a simply stunning example of the type of gifts I look for.

When you set out on the "gift hunt" keep in mind the person you are buying for and their particular taste.

The range of Tea Towels by Richard Bramble made an excellent gift for my grandmother. She appreciates quality materials and anything to do with the Countryside, so this collection of wonderful designs by Richard Bramble was a winning combination.

Made from 100% high quality cotton, these Tea Towels are printed digitally for sharp bright colours; they can be washed at high temperatures and feature beautiful artwork. At just £8.00 each they are fantastic value.

My mother loves to hold a dinner party and doesn't need any excuse to do so!  Anything that will contribute to her fantastic table display is always a winner, so the Set of 6 Game bird Table Mats by Richard Bramble is sure to make me very popular at her Birthday lunch in June!

The round table mats are produced with a cork backing and a melamine surface, making them heat resistant. Showing a variety of different British birds, each mat includes text about the bird in question making them a wonderful focal point. At £45.oo these table mats offer exceptional quality for a very reasonable price.

When buying for my best friend, cooking and tableware doesn't spring to mind.  The perfect gift for her - a wine cooler or a bottle stopper! A dog lover with a passion for chilled Sauvignon Blanc; she loves anything to do with the Countryside so the Labrador Bottle Stopper by Orchid Designs Ltd is perfect!

The stainless steel Labrador shaped bottle stopper is designed to fit any standard size wine bottle and it comes in a presentation box so you don't even need to wrap! At £12.99 this bottle stopper combined with a bottle of her favourite wine makes a simply stunning gift - in fact I would quite like to keep it myself!
