Shop Local – Primrose Hill Christmas Gift Guide

Shop locally this Christmas to keep it ethical and support our local businesses. Here are a few ideas to get your festive season off to a sparkling start.

Harriet Kelsall

This delicate pendant has been inspired by natural, unfurling forms often found in nature and made from solid, Fairtrade rose gold from a certified mine in Peru. A brilliant cut diamond has been set into the curl to add a sparkle. The 18-inch rose gold chain is also Fairtrade and features an adjuster at 16 inches, attached through a hidden bail. Pair with matching earrings for extra festive glamour. Necklace £595

Primrose Bakery

For a sweet Christmas try this Christmas chocolate cake, a less traditional (but more delicious!) version of a traditional fruit Christmas cake. The cake is a 70% dark chocolate sponge and buttercream, iced in the middle and down the sides and decorated with Christmas decorations and/or a message. The Primrose Bakery will have a wide range of Christmas cupcakes, cakes, biscuits, slices and gifts available over the whole Christmas period.
