Christmas Gift Ideas

Oh là là! It’s beginning to look and feel a little festive across the P-O. This year has been hard for everybody. Time to spread a little kindness and goodwill – and why not say it à la Catalane?

Please buy your Christmas gifts locally if you can.

And we know that all that shopping can be a tiring exercise so make sure you leave yourself plenty of time for a for a well-deserved cuppa or a coffee, snack or meal. Check out one of the region’s many fabulous restaurants and tea rooms to keep your energy up.

Don’t forget, there’s also a wide range of Christmas markets across the region too, although please check with local Offices de Tourisme for up to date info regarding Covid 19.

Watch this space too for a list of restaurants open over the festive period.

Stuck for gift ideas this Christmas? Out of ideas?

– Does Dad REALLY need another pair of slippers?
– Surely Simon has enough socks!
– Why is that Magic Mop you bought Mum last Christmas still in its box?

How about a gift card? It’s a great way to support local businesses!

Sometimes, we need a bit of extra help to treat ourselves.

With a gift card, we’re far more likely to go to that special restaurant, buy that stylish jacket that costs a little more that we would normally spend, book in for that relaxing facial or body massage….

Gift cards for a wide range of LOCAL shops, restaurants, services and activities – something for everyone.

Hair and beauty treatments, wine and flowers, shops and restaurants, land and sea adventures… there’s no easier way to offer that perfect gift and support local business at the same time. Click the images for more information.
