Christmas shopping at Bodiam Castle

Tins of Christmas shortbread and other festive food in a National Trust shop

This article was written about our Christmas shopping offer for Christmas 2016. We'll be updating this article later in the year with details of our offers for the 2017 festive season.

Decorate your tree and home

Our gift shop has a good selection of attractive decorations for you to choose from.  Decorate your tree with sparkly mice and rabbit decorations or, perhaps, you prefer a more traditional Christmas bauble. There are plenty to choose from in a range of festive colours.

If you like to decorate your home, then choose from some of our larger or free-standing decorations. There are plenty of Father Christmases and robins to fill that quiet corner of your room, and don’t forget the countdown to Christmas with an Advent calendar.

Be of good cheer

This year we have a range of Christmas drinks on sale from Christmas cider to mead.   Some are sold in more traditional looking flagons so will make a special present for someone who likes a tipple or two.

Christmas treats

Everyone likes that special box of biscuits at Christmas and this year we have several for you to choose from.  The tins are well decorated and will look good well into the New Year when you’re storing something else in them.

Christmas lunch wouldn’t be complete without a Christmas pudding to follow the turkey.  We have a traditional round Christmas pudding on sale, wrapped in muslin and ready to cook. Just imagine it steaming away with a sprig of holly on the top and lashings of brandy butter and custard.

Gifts for everyone

There are special gifts that we have for Christmas but our usual gifts and souvenirs are still on sale too.  If you’re struggling to find that special gift, ask any of our shop team for advice. They’ll be pleased to help and are full of good ideas.

Happy Christmas shopping.
