West Malling Christmas Gift Guide

It’s that time of year when the Christmas lights have already been switched on and we really need to give some serious thought to Christmas shopping. The great news is you don’t have to spend days trawling around Bluewater, or wrestle the crowds on Oxford Street; you can buy gifts for all your friends and family right here in West Malling!

Here are a few ideas to get you started if you’re heading out Christmas shopping in West Malling:

Christmas Gifts for Women
Fragolina Shop - Swan Street

You’ll be spoilt for choice if you’re looking for Christmas gifts for your wife, girlfriend, mother, or sister in West Malling. For something sparkly you could visit Martin Wilde Jewellery, where you can choose from a superb selection of ready-made necklaces, bracelets, and earrings, or you can have a bespoke piece designed in their on-site workshop. Alternatively P’s Jewellery stocks colourful gemstone and bead jewellery, which would be just as suitable for a teenage daughter as for a grown up sister.

West Malling shops are full of accessories for women that make wonderful Christmas gifts. For a completely unique selection of scarves, purses, and belts, alongside a range of vintage style clothing, pay a visit to Fragolina.
Katie's Candles - Abbey Arcade
For unusual handbags and jewellery from Toxic Angel, check out Beauty and Treats in the Abbey Arcade. Designer handbags from the likes of Zandra Rhodes, Fiorelli and Modolu can be found at Number 39, alongside a range of shoes and other accessories.Ladies love to be pampered at Christmas, so why not pop into MiraMira for a toiletry gift pack or a treatment voucher? Alternatively some luxurious scented candles from Katie’s Candles, in a gorgeously exotic scent such as coconut and mango, can help her to relax and unwind. If you’re looking for designer lingerie or nightwear, Josh Lingerie is the place to go. Finally, for tea light holders, lamps, and slippers, Morocco Land has a unique selection of hand crafted gifts.

Christmas Gifts for Men

Men are notoriously hard to buy for, but whatever they’re into we have it covered in West Malling. Your first stop should be the new Monks Clothing store, which stocks menswear brands such as Bellfield, Pearly King, and Religion, and can provide anything from cosy Christmas jumpers to hat and scarf sets. If your husband, father, or brother loves his kitchen gadgets, then make sure you pop into the Smith & Webb Cookshop where they sell everything from coffee machines to slow cookers.
For men that enjoy the great outdoors, Moor and Mountain is a treasure trove of gift ideas. From headlamps and compasses to waterproof jackets and ski goggles, they stock a great range of outdoor clothing and accessories. If you’re buying a gift for a keen fisherman, you may also want to check out West Malling Angling for specific fishing gifts.

Moor and Mountain
For men that enjoy their artwork, pay a visit to The Gallery in the Mill Yard. You can choose from a varied range of prints, or paintings by local artists, or you could have a special print or photograph of your own framed in their workshop. Dads and granddads would love a photo of the children for Christmas, so why not book a family photo shoot with the White Studio and have an image framed or printed on canvas?
Christmas Gifts for Children

Christmas is all about children, so we couldn’t write a West Malling Christmas gift guide without including something for the kids. For a lovely range of toys and stocking fillers, as well as activity and colouring books, pop into the Post Office. You can buy the stamps for your Christmas cards at the same time!

Childrens Shoes from Soles With Heart - Swan Street
Across the road at Soles With Heart, you can pick up colourful boots or trainers that would suit children and teenagers of all ages, as well as hair accessories, wellies, fluffy slippers, and children’s jewellery. Cater to their sweet tooth when you visit Chocolate Umbrella. Their original sweet Christmas cakes can be made to order and are guaranteed to be a success on Christmas Day. They also stock chocolate Santas, Christmas lollies, and edible decorations for your little ones to hang on the tree.
