Places to buy your Xmas presents in Clitheroe
As the popular Christmas song goes, it’s the most wonderful time of the year! So what better to while away a few hours than do some Christmas shopping in Clitheroe and get into the yuletide spirit. Clitheroe is a regional market town which boasts a combination of high street and unique boutique shops meaning that everyone is catered for. Don’t miss out on the Christmas Market in town on Saturday 3rd December where you can buy festive treats from the stalls and enjoy the merits of the ‘Best Dressed Shop Window’ competition! Other places you can buy Christmas presents from are:
Clitheroe Books – for the special people in your life who enjoy having their nose in a book. Stocked with all types of literature, children’s books, travel and the arts, history… you name it, Clitheroe Books has got it. Being a secondhand shop, the books are fairly priced without compromising on the condition. While they do buy books from individuals, their standards are high meaning you know you’ll get a quality gift for someone!
Ken Varey’s Town & Country Wear – for those who enjoy the outdoor lifestyle. Opened 30 years ago, this shop has a reputation for selling quality country clothing, listing a number of brands amongst their goods such as Joules, Hunter and Barbour. Brands like these are popular even with people who aren’t so interested in the outdoors meaning you could pop into the shop and cross some people off of your Christmas present buying ‘to do’ list!
Backridge Farm – for those who appreciate a nice fragrance. Set just outside Clitheroe, Backridge is a collection shops some of which sell candles, reed diffusers and fragranced treats alongside accessories with a twist, a bit different from the usual high street products. Once you’ve stocked up you can enjoy a relaxing meal at a decent price, whilst the kids play in the park on site. The perfect combination for a pleasant afternoon of Christmas shopping.
Longitude Art Gallery – for art lovers. This is a small but well stocked gallery showing regular exhibitions from a range of artists in a range of different mediums. They’re currently presenting the work of acclaimed artist and designer Louisa Boyd. While you’re in town, find out about their ‘Dine at the Gallery’ events too; food and drinks are the accompaniment for a short talk from a visiting artist. Christmas presents and cultural events rolled into one… what’s not to love!
Gazehill Organics – for those who prefer edible presents! Gazehill Organics is a working farm which offers some top quality local produce meaning you can be fully prepared for all the meals over the Christmas period. The crown jewel of the traditional dinner is the turkey and here you can buy organic free roaming turkeys for as little as £47.99. For food lovers buy them ‘The Lancashire Cook Book’ in the sale for less than £10, an ideal Christmas present-come-holiday souvenir to wrap up and put under the tree!
