Travel North Wales | Our Local Christmas Gift Guide

Our Top Recommendations for Christmas Shopping in North Wales

2020 was meant to see our very first ever Christmas Market at Tan Rallt Holiday Park, unfortunately we’ve had to put that idea on hold until next year – but that doesn’t mean you can’t still support some of the fabulous independent retailers and craftsmen that North Wales has to offer!

Here’s our list of the best places in North Wales to get a unique gift for someone this Christmas.

Gift Ideas for Foodies

Baravelli’s Conwy

A long standing favourite with the team here at Tan Rallt – you can’t go wrong with chocolate from Baravelli’s!

TR Tip – the chocolate baubles make beautiful decorations (& are very tasty too!)


Hickory’s, Rhos-on-Sea

One of North Wales’ most popular family restaurants, Hickory’s has recently launched a Hickory’s at Home service! So you can order their signature BBQ straight to your door UK wide!

TR Tip – don’t forget to add on their signature range of spices and sauces to your order, they even do gift sets for just £15


Bodnant Welsh Food Centre

Just half an hour from Tan Rallt Holiday Park, Bodnant Welsh Food Centre is a one stop shop for local produce who also offer national delivery!

TR Tip – splurge out on one of their fabulous cheese & wine hampers which comes with three of our favourite cheeses from the Snowdonia Cheese Company!


Gifts from the Bar

Gwinllan Conwy

Another Tan Rallt favourite Gwinllan Conwy, just 20 minutes from Tan Rallt Holiday Park, is North Wales’ number 1 vineyard.

TR Tip – if you’re looking for something special order a bottle of their Rhosliw Pefriog – it’s our favourite British sparking rose


Aber Falls Gin

Just 35 minutes away from Tan Rallt you will find Aber Falls Distillery – their award winning Welsh gin is infused with botanical ingredients from across North Wales and made using Welsh water filtered from the Snowdonia mountain range.

TR Tip – if you aren’t sure which flavour to go for, Orange Marmalade was our best seller when first stocked Aber Falls Gin in the bar at The Cliffs Bar & Restaurant!


Vinomondo, Conwy

Need some expert advise? Vinomondo wine merchants on Conwy High Street is the best place to head to. Stocking a range of wines, beers and spirits including many made in Wales.

TR Tip – the team in Vinomondo are very friendly – so if you aren’t sure what to buy you’ll find their reccommendations very helpful!


For Local Gifts

The Gift Shop, Abergele

Tucked away in Abergele you will find the very aptly named Gift Shop! This charming shop is well stocked with beautiful gifts for all occasions.

TR Tip – this is our most local recommendation on this list so why not pick up something Abergele related like one of the Gwrych Castle Official Calendars?


Luther & Co, Conwy

Another Conwy recommendation Luther & Co is an independent treasure trove filled with a range of beautiful home gifts and accessories – perfect for Christmas!

TR Tip – their exclusive silk scarf featuring an original 1920s map of ‘Conway’ is on our Christmas list!


Peculiar Gallery, Abergele

One of the latest additions to Market Street, Abergele, The Peculiar Gallery is home to all sorts of unique pieces of art – paintings, ceramics, prints, sculptures and books!

TR Tip – this is the place to visit to find a gift that is completely unique! (and dare we say it, a little peculiar…)

The Retreat Spa

We couldn’t have a gift list without including our very own Retreat Spa! You can contact Holly to purchase gift vouchers or to pre book spa packages for next year.

TR Tip – if you’re booking one of Holly’s fabulous spa packages why not also get one of the Comfort Zone candles or luxurious moisturisers to be unwrapped with your gift voucher on Christmas Day?
