When it comes to finding the right gifts for Christmas it can be an absolute nightmare. Thankfully, there are enough fantastic stores on the High Street and in and around Newmarket to make it that bit easier to find the right present for the festive season. We’ve put together a quick gift guide for anyone looking for the ideal gift to buy for your significant other, father, brother, friend and where to find a few goodies around town.
When it comes to looking sharp and being ready to tackle the day then a shave or a trim of the beard is key. Make it seem like less of a chore with this classic shaving brush and razor set from Goldings. They’ve got loads of other great grooming products to go with it as well. Pop into their store on the High Street and take a look around at what they have to offer.
You can head to Gibsons Saddlery to pick up these bad boys that will definitely make light work of walks up Warren Hill or along the Devil’s Dyke. One of the must-have essentials for living in the Suffolk countryside and being able to take advantage of the vast areas of open space on Newmarket’s heath and in the surrounding villages. Perfect for a morning on the gallops or walking the dogs in the evenings
The Gift Shop at the National Heritage Centre for Horseracing and Sporting Art at Palace House has these stylish ties on display and would help when it came to suiting up for a day at the races of the next big board meeting . Keep an eye out for some of the racing themed ones as well, a nice touch if you’re buying this for a racing fan.
Now that you’ve got the tie, why not finish off the suited and booted look with a pair of these stylish cufflinks, also available at the National Heritage Centre. There are loads of different themed ones, personal favourites include the Scottish Terriers, as well as those of Stubbs’ Anatomical Drawing and the Harry Hall Portrait of Jockeys pair. There are also loads of tie-pins as well in this collection.
At the top of the High Street is Busy Bee and it is the place to go if you are after any sort of leather products. They have a host of footwear, briefcase, bags and these stylish polo belts that make an excellent stocking-filler and they come in a range of colours .
Now, nobody has ever been overly thrilled when they open up a present and receive socks for Christmas. But that’s all changed. usually a gift reserved for Dad, these Happy Socks from Golding will definitely result in an improved ‘sock game’ and adds a fun element to having to get dressed for work. The brighter and wilder the better!
