Christmas Gifts and Festive Fun


1 Marriotts Walk Blog Graphics November 2018 It’s the same sentiment every year, get an early start with the Christmas shopping, bag a bargain and surf online to find the perfect (and unique) gift for partners, friends and family members – but it never quite happens that way does it?

So we thought we’d offer a little help to check off your present list with a few ideal Christmas presents from the Marriotts Walk retailers for 2018.

Remember, we have a huge free car park, toilets and baby change area and outdoor seating in case you need to just stop for a few moments.

Trespass, the latest addition to Marriotts Walk, has some wonderful waterproof wellies for kids who want to join in the outdoor action but who aren’t always great at staying away from melted snow puddles!

Crew clothing also have an abundance of check (check is in this winter) trousers, shirts and jumpers for him and stripes, spots and stars for her – plus the essential slippers and PJs for when the outside expedition is over and thawing is needed.

Gifts for the beauty buff

For the extroverts and limelight seekers who want to look their best, you can never go wrong with makeup sets, smellies and eye-catching jewellery. M&S have a wide range of face palettes and perfect definition liners. Debenhams can always be relied on for the latest fragrances and we particularly like the huge range for him and for her from Dorothy Perkins – we spied this horoscope necklace which is a must for friends that follow their stars.

Gifts for divas and dudes

Most Marriotts Walk retailers have amazing glitzy Christmas party outfits that will twinkle and sparkle on any dance floor but we especially like the shimmering gold, bronze and silver festive inspiration from toe to crown for the ladies from Wallis and Evans and the sparkly sequins and embellishments from Phase Eight.

Check out the party time Pinterest board from Evans for ideas.

Slightly less energetic but still gorgeous are the slippers, mules and boots available for the guys from Fat Face. We can already see them toasting in front of the log burner.

Gifts for little ones

Christmas is a delightful time for babies, toddlers and youngsters, full of excitement and the anticipation of waiting for Father Christmas – by the way, Santa will be joining us on 21-23 December for free entertainment with his balloon modelling friends.

Jo Jo Maman Bebe and Debenhams have some gorgeous Christmas jumpers and cutesy baby grows and sleepsuit sets for a baby’s first Christmas.

Perfect stocking fillers

We adore the eye masks from Monsoon as perfect stocking fillers and who do you know that’s going on holiday and will need matching travel essentials?

For tea, coffee and chocolate lovers, Whittard has some beautiful beverage baubles and gourmet fudge selections, perfect for those who like to pop the kettle on and put their feet up.

New Look have a superb 2018 Christmas party wear range but their knitted penguin and llama decorations, hats, slippers and toys are simply adorable.

Fresh Cards and Gifts is the ideal stop off to pick out your special friend and family cards, colour coordinated wrapping paper, tags and additional ideas for quirky, even risqué, gifts

 Christmastime at the movies is exciting with a colourful animation, feel-good tear-jerker love story and a thrilling sci-fi blockbuster to choose from.

The ideal gift for cinema thrill seekers is Cineworld’s Christmas Gift Box, packed full of popcorn and candy goodies and the obvious movie film vouchers.

But before we forget…

A quick stop off to replenish energy levels

Any form of shopping is tiring for the feet and mentally so you need to factor in a quick pit stop for a festive frothy coffee or Christmas chow from the Marriotts Walk food outlets.

For a quick lunch, grab a hot Panini or mouth-watering pastry and cake selection from Caffe Nero or sub-cookie-drink combo takeaway from Subway.

Café Rouge has a range of succulent savouries and spiced sticky sweets on their jolly menu plus there’s a complimentary Prosecco reception for Christmas Parties (terms apply).

Frankie & Benny’s Christmas menu features everything from the classic turkey roast and trimmings to brand new dishes such as the Vegan ‘Not Dog’ and Popcorn Prawns.

And if you’re short on time or fancy evening ‘entertainment made easy’ pop into M&S to see what delectable delights can temp you.

Nom, nom, finger-licking festive fun.
