Giving gifts has got to be one of the best parts of Christmas! We love finding new and different presents that you wouldn’t find in the rest of the country necessarily. Cornwall is just marvellous, and the range and quality of our local shops give homes to some of the best Cornish Christmas Gifts.
We’ve compiled a list of THE BEST local gifts to give this year which your friends and family will fall in love with. You may even have to buy some of these for your own Christmas treats along the way!
Here’s (what we think) are the Best Cornish Christmas Gifts to give to support our local producers, makers and growers…

Polgoon Vineyard are found down in West Cornwall and create some wonderful wines, sparling wines and ciders.
For a unique gift for art and wine lovers – Art Bacchus – the Polgoon Art Bacchus is a collaboration with Newlyn Art School. The label features a painting of ‘Veor Cove’ by Paul Lewin, artist and tutor at the school. The bottle is signed by the artist and winemaker and each bottle from the limited edition of 1500 is numbered which makes it very collectable. This is a characterful wine made from Bacchus grapes grown at Polgoon in Penzance. It has aromas of lime zest with gooseberry and elderflower prominent on the palate. It has a balanced minerality reminiscent of Cornish shores. Perfect with Cornish cheeses and Christmas starters.
Try a Cornish Sparkling at Christmas – Seyval Sparkling 2014 – the Seyval Sparkling is the perfect fizz for festive celebrations. A hint of green pear on the nose followed by delicate citrus notes and a good balanced acidity. Food match with Cornish seafood, perhaps some delicious, fresh Cornish crab on Boxing Day!
