The Christmas Gift Shop Edit

Finding an unusual decoration or interesting gift is always a challenge at this time of year.  Of course, the hard work and effort will be rewarded with a look of joyful surprise or mild envy as others admire your shopping prowess. So, here is a helping hand.

We’ve picked our favourite decorations and presents from gift shops – museums, the National Trust, English Heritage and Kew. Not only do they offer something different from the high street, but you can bask in the warm glow of having helped some wonderful organisations.
