Last minute local Christmas shopping ideas

Melanie Richardson


It’s that time of year again, Christmas shopping and the key question…what do you buy for the people that mean the most in your life? If you’re anything like us no matter how prepared you are there’s always a last-minute rush!



We work with hundreds of amazing local businesses, so we thought we’d give you some great ideas for last minute unique presents for your loved ones all sourced from our client list!



Davenport Vineyards


Any one of the organic wines would make a great present for a wine loving friend or family member, perhaps add the gift box to make it a really special gift




Davenport Vineyards make up 24 acres, grown on 5 parcels of land, 9 grape varieties and a multitude of soil types and micro-climates. The vineyards are mostly at Horsmonden in Kent, with a smaller vineyard next to the winery at Rotherfield, East Sussex.




Chillies Farm Dairy


Try the Sussex White for a true taste of Sussex produce.




Chillies Farm is a small dairy based on a family farm near High Hurstwood in the heart of the Sussex countryside. They are committed to low input farming using minimal fertilisers and herbicides and to conserving our environment. Their milk comes from our own herd of pedigree goats ensuring that it is as fresh as possible to hand-make kefir and cheeses that are full of character and flavour.



CrossFit Uckfield


How about a personalised nutrition plan for the new year? Personal training to kick start 2020? Or head straight in and buy a ten-class ticket or membership…




CrossFit Classes really are for everyone regardless of age, ability or experience as each movement is scaled to your individual requirements, which means everyone can access every workout via their own personalised route.

Their core discipline is CrossFit but they also offer a variety of Classes and Personal Training alongside our CrossFit classes to ensure we really do cater for everyone.

Heart of the south racing


Something a little different for this one…a share in a racehorse perhaps?


Owning a racehorse is a hobby in everyone’s grasp thanks to racing syndicates and is more accessible and affordable than ever before. Heart of the South Racing has excelled in managing successful racing syndicates (where we put together groups of 5, 10 or 20 individuals to share the thrill of ownership) for over 20 years. Their reputation is very well established within the industry and a large number of our owners have been with us for many years.



Noble Jacks:


New high energy music to get you stomping into the new year!

Noble Jacks have been touring relentlessly, with sold out shows across the UK on their headline tours, as well as shows at major festivals including Glastonbury, Isle of Wight and Bestival, plus major European festivals. With their second album, Stay Awake, released Spring 2019, the Jacks went straight into the top 10 Official Album Charts and played a sold out Concorde2 (Brighton) launch party.
