Christmas Shopping Evenings at Armstrong Ward – all welcome
Lifestyle store Armstrong Ward opens its doors after hours (6-pm) on Thursday 14 and 21 of November for some festive shopping. There are complimentary cocktails, exclusive offers and a fabulous charity raffle – their 15th fundraiser is for Cancer Care.
The relaxed, candlelit events are an ideal time to pick out the perfect present and to look for ways to make your home feel Christmassy and welcoming. There are decorations galore for hall, hearth, tree and table as well as snuggly touches which include throws, cushions and candles.
If you want to buy British when looking for Christmas gifts there’s a brilliant selection at Armstrong Ward – for him, her and the home. There are store favourites like Emma Bridgewater, Neom Organics and John Sankey for furniture. And there are some new British finds.
Thomas Clipper Country Cologne is developed in the home of fragrance, Grasse in France, and hand-filled in small batches near Lincoln. Expect a scent that’s masculine, complex and deep with a combination of vetiver, saffron, sandalwood, ginger and black pepper.
For girls and women of all ages take a look at Armstrong Ward’s Alice Caroline cosmetic bags and eye masks. They are made in the UK in an ethically audited factory and showcase the best of British design prints including William Morris’s Strawberry Thief. A print whose popularity has truly stood the test of time and a lovely place to stash essentials. Or why not present it filled as an extra special gift.
Another new British brand for Armstrong Ward is Mary Temperley skin and body products, made by hand in a converted barn tucked away in South Somerset. The MAKE bath foams, with essential oils, come in fabulously richly coloured glass bottles, real Christmas treasure.
Armstrong Ward also has a wonderfully stocked children’s section with a vast array of wooden and design-led toys and gifts. You will find stocking fillers and main gifts here. Look out for ride-on tractors, spy pens, soft toys and lovely babywear.
