Cumbria Life Christmas Edition!
This weekend we kick off the festive show season as we attend Cumbria Life Christmas.
16th & 17th November
Rheged Centre, Penrith, Cumbria
Packed full of Cumbrian crafts of all varieties this is a wonderful shopping event.
Here are a few of the Lauren's Cows Favourites!
Shopping events like these are a fantastic way to find unusual gifts and products that you can't find on the high street. The show will feature over 60 exhibitors championing independent businesses, creatives and makers to showcase the best of the North’s home and gifts, arts and crafts, food and drink, tableware, stocking fillers and decorations. The event will celebrate craftsmanship, ethical produce, good design and innovation through a diverse range of inspirational and affordable gifts. Each and every stand has something special to offer, but here are a just a few of my personal favourites!
The Chocolate Cottage
If you like a bit of luxury in your life then look no further.
Choccies are always a great 'go to' gift. I mean who doesn't like to indulge at Christmas. However these exquisite chocolate boxes from The Chocolate Cottage are the ultimate treat. Using delicious Belgian Chocolate, Lakeland double cream and a range of extra special ingredients, Chocolate Cottage create scrumptious, visual delights worthy of their iconic Lake District surroundings.
They even have a delicious vegan range!
Jeannie's Kitchen Garden
For the Foodies!
One of my favourite things about Christmas has to be the food! The ultimate special treat for me is a no expense spared cheese board with all the trimmings! That's why I am especially excited to get my hands on a jar of Jeannie's Kitchen Garden's Festive Fig and Plum Chutney!
Working with excellent local Cumbrian fruit and veg suppliers, along with home grown herbs, Jeannie creates award winning jams and preserves the traditional way. Every morning the Garden Kitchen will be filled with the delicious smell from the pans of fresh jams bubbling away. Every jar is filled with love, colour and flavour with absolutely no additives!
Bread & Jam
The personal touch!
I love to find gifts that have that little something special about them, which is why I'm very excited to visit the Bread & Jam stand.
Like us Bread & Jam are a family led business. Full of whimsy and fun, all of their gifts are simply a delight! From stationary and homeware to party decorations Bread & Jam love creating what they call 'moments of sunshine'. So whether it's a Personalised Stocking or some After Dinner Fortunes for the Christmas table there's a little something for everyone.
It's obvious that a lot of thought goes into these gifts!
Reflect & Repeat
Something to stand out!
As and artist, I am always drawn to colour and exciting new prints. Created by Jo Mitchell, Reflect & Repeat create luxury products for the home featuring Jo's trademark floral designs with a modern edge!
These dramatic eye catching products are something truly unique. I've already eyed up the stylish notebooks and I'm sure my Dad will be getting a vibrant Beetroot tea towel in his Christmas Stocking designed for much acclaimed sister chefs Hemsley & Hemsley.
