The Xmas Gift Guide 2021

Our famous festive gift guide is back – and packed with loads of great ideas, just as you’d expect!

We are fantastically spoilt in Brum with super makers, creators and retailers on our doorstep, so let’s show them some big love this Christmas. We’ve gift ideas ranging from £6 to £2,500, including a combination of tangible presents as well as awesome experiences. While we’ve included web addresses, we reckon if you’re able to get out and support physical businesses where possible, they’d be cock-a-hoop. Here’s just a very small sample of some cracking local gifts on offer – check out the print version of Birmingham Living for pages and pages of inspiration. Happy shopping!
