North Devon's Guide to Christmas Gifts

Christmas shopping can be a daunting task, but when you have an abundance of shops, delis and garden centres like we do here in North Devon, gift buying has never been easier.

Affinity Devon

Affinity Devon is North Devon’s unique outlet shopping centre, and with over 30 stores to shop from you’re bound to find a festive bargain or two. Offering up to 50% off rrp prices in stores such as Nike, M&S and GAP, it’s definitely worth a visit for some brand names at discounted prices. With free parking, onsite wifi and a range of delicious bakeries and coffee shops to refuel, a visit is a must. Open 9am-6pm Monday to Friday and 9am-8pm Thursdays, festive shopping awaits.

The Proper Marmalade Company

Know someone with a sweet tooth for confectionery gifts? All 100% handmade locally from fresh fruit, The Proper Marmalade Company are based in Ilfracombe and are a top contender on the gifting front this December. These award winning marmalades come in two varieties, the ‘Proper’ marmalades for the traditionalists and the ‘Improper’ marmalades full of quirky, off the wall combinations.

Green Lanes Shopping Centre

The shopping and social hub of North Devon, Green Lanes Shopping Centre is jam packed with festive offerings. With stores from the likes of River Island, TK Maxx, The Works and Pandora, there is bound to be a gift for the whole family. Stop off for a bite to eat in one of the many eateries that encompass the building for a day full of festive fun and delicious food.

Pick up a keepsake in the pandora shop, a practical handbag in River Island or even book a holiday at TUI, it has all your shopping needs in one place.

Dartington Crystal

Head to Dartington Crystal on the edge of Torrington for a range of glass goodies that you can even create yourself! Watch the glass masters at work and then visit the factory shopping complex which provides a great selection of products and offers all under one roof.

With a whole host of other brands from The Dartington Kitchen & Home store, Edinburgh Woolen Mill and more, this is certainly the place to festive shop until you drop.

Johns Of Instow

Fresh, homemade, quality and local - what more could you want when picking up some tasty treats and Christmas gifts? Head to Johns of Instow to purchase everything from tasty cakes to jams, chutneys and spirits; some of the best things at Christmas.

Barnstaple Pannier Market

Markets are great places to pick up unique and individual items that may not reach the high street stores, and at this time of year Barnstaple Pannier Market comes to life with an array of goodies. From knitted scarfs to fudge and wreaths, you name it, you’ll be able to get it at the market! Head down between Tuesday and Saturday from 9am - 4pm.
