Does your better half go crazy for Coniston? Are your parents happiest in Hawkshead?

If there’s a special person in your life this Christmas and you’re stuck for ways to fill their stockings, look no further than our guide to Christmas gift ideas for the Lakes lover!


1) Herdy Stuff

If you’re into Lake District souvenirs, chances are you already have a Herdy mug sitting somewhere close by to your kettle, or a herdy tea towel hanging off the oven door. The ‘Herdy’ brand has become iconic in recent years, with five stores in Kendal, Bowness, Grasmere, Keswick and Hawes offering a full range of products - many of which can still also be found on the ends of aisles at tourist attractions.

The Herdwick sheep logo now finds itself on all manner of kitchenware, home products, baby toys and items of clothing. The full range is also available online, delivering all over the country.

The special edition mug pictured above can be fuond here! 


2) Mountain Art Prints

If your recipient’s a rambler, they may have a favourite fell. Luckily, there’s a seller on custom-order site Etsy whose range of poster prints includes a unique, minimalist depiction of Helvelyn. The sellers even do custom orders to include additional text, messaging or colour schemes - and pricing starts at under a tenner.


3) Lakes Distillery Gin & Vodka

Fancy the sound of salted caramel vodka, or a rhubarb and custard gin? You’re in luck! The Lakes Distillery is fast becoming a household name for their growing collection of specialist alcoholic produce. But at Christmas time, the company has really ramped up its offering.

The Lakes Distillery online store now offers the likes of flavoured Gin Christmas Crackers, whiskey, gin or vodka baubles, miniature gift packs and more, any of which would be a perfect stocking filler present or larger gift for that special someone.


4) Anything from Lakeland

Now, this one might be a little more of a niche as it depends on how much time your recipient likes to spend in the kitchen. But if a keen chef is on your to-buy-for list, Lakeland Limited are certain to have something that’ll fill the gap in their pantry.

From cake pop machines to knife sets with a lifetime guarantee, Lakeland will have everything you can think of as well as a tonne of stuff you’d never imagined before. They also have a fantastic Christmas range with fun gadgets, stocking fillers, games, treats and more. If you were wondering where on earth you’d find that brussels sprout toilet roll your Dad asked you for, you need look no further…


5. A Stay at Littlemere!

Call us biased, but we couldn’t put a list together without it! Littlemere is an all-season park in a great location on the edge of the Lake District. A perfect base for those looking to explore the area and come back to peace, quiet and natural beauty.

Why not surprise your loved one this Christmas by booking a stay at our park?
