Need a last-minute gift? Spitalfields has it covered
You know the feeling. Sheer panic when you realise you’ve forgotten an important birthday or anniversary and need to rush out for a last-minute gift! We’ve all been there, more than once… and luckily for you, Spitalfields has the answer. We’ve put together a list of go-to stores with our recommendations for when time really is of the essence. You can thank us later…
Something a little bit different
Source is a treasure chest of super cute and unusual gifts and cards, clothes and accessories, homewares and personalised trinkets. Whether it’s for your mum, sister, daughter, wife or nan, this lifestyle boutique is the perfect place to find a unique, budget-friendly gift that looks like you’ve actually put some thought into it.
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend
Dower & Hall has the perfect gift for the lady in your life. With knowledgeable staff on hand to help, you’ll be sure to find something personal and unique in store. From dainty stacking rings to fancy diamonds, there’s something for all budgets. All with the added bonus that you won’t have to gift wrap it yourself!
Sweet like chocolate
The best things in life are free, but then there’s chocolate and you can’t go far wrong with Montezuma’s luxury handmade chocolate treats. Always a winner, and their giant jars of organic chocolate buttons (900g of goodness) are a fail-safe surprise for chocoholics of all ages. Alternatively, their range of chocolate hampers are real show-stoppers. Remember, sharing is caring. So, a gift of chocolate for somebody that lives under the same roof as you are often a gift to yourself too. Now that’s a win-win!
The icing on the cake
Konditor & Cook are self-proclaimed “legendary bakers”, and we have to agree with that title because their personalised celebration cakes are out of this world. Give the gift of cake and choose from lemon, red velvet or carrot cake (to name a few), then have their talented bakers decorate with a personal message of your choice. Whatever the occasion, cake is always welcome and going bespoke will get you all the ‘brownie’ points you could hope for.
Crack open a bottle
How about those awkward occasions when you just don’t know which gift to buy? Usually weddings, or birthdays of friends or relatives you haven’t seen for a while… If you know they like to savour a proper drink, Bedales can help you do the rest. With over 400 different wines on-site, you’ll be spoilt for choice. For something a bit more special, why not treat them to a wine tasting evening in store? Ask staff for details.
Lots more is happening every day at Spitalfields and of course, all of the above are completely acceptable for self-gifting! Especially when payday arrives, and you know you absolutely deserve it. Take a look at our store listings to see all that Spitalfields has to offer. From treats to necessities, there’s something for everyone.
