A garden and home lover’s Christmas gift guide 2020
We share some of our favourite finds, categorised by price, to help you find the perfect gift for your loved ones.
If you are looking for the perfect gift for a friend or family member who loves their garden and home, then look no further. We have selected some of our favourite items all at different prices. Some are quirky, some are one-off and unique, while others are useful and practical – we love them all, and so we are sure anyone who receives something from our store will love it too.
We have a great range online and in our Melrose shop, so we hope you enjoy our special gift selection here, which we have put together based on budget to make it even easier for you to find something you love at a purse-friendly price.
It might come as a surprise to find a beautiful gift at less than £10, but it is possible! We have a wonderful selection of thoughtful present ideas that would work as stocking fillers, secret Santa gifts, something for the class teacher or a little extra for an interiors-loving friend.

The subtle scents will transport you a million miles away from a cold, grey, winter’s day!
We couldn’t resist including our Cast-Iron Piglet, £20, in this list. Cute, quirky and definitely one to raise a smile, this little fellow will develop its own unique patina over time. Ideal for garden lovers - who wouldn’t smile when they caught sight of this little one beside a flower pot?
We all know someone who could benefit from a bit of downtime and self-care, and our Unwind & Escape Gift Set by Plum & Ashby, £25, is the perfect antidote to stress-filled days.
