Is it safe to get the tinsel out yet? At the Bute Gallery, we’ve been planning a fantastic festive season with some beautiful pieces to suit all budgets and tastes. We’ve had quite a few people in our Gallery looking for Christmas gifts for people who are ‘difficult people to buy for’, so we thought we’d help out with our Top Seven Crimble Types and what to buy them…
The Classy Lady:
Do you have someone to buy for who adheres to the maxim, ‘have nothing in your home which is not useful or which you believe to be beautiful’? We have some beautiful scarves, like this one – ‘Floating Dandelion’.
The Animal Lover:
If there’s someone on your christmas list who shares their bedside table, mantlepiece and windowsill with a menagerie of animals, search no more. We are so excited about our new range of bronze animal figures, with dogs, birds, cats, and yes, we even have a stunning stag, proudly surveying the seascape from his vantage point in our gallery.
The Smug Marrieds
We have carefully chosen pieces that are just perfect for newly weds’ first Christmas, babies and other special occasions to celebrate. Unusual sculptures, candle holders and table pieces – whether you are looking for an extravagant statement piece or a small thoughtful reminders of an important event, do come in and browse our selection. If you can’t make it into the gallery – no worries, order online in our shop and enjoy free postage and packaging for most items.
The Afternoon Tea Afficionado
With such a great range of quality individual crockery pieces, afternoon tea will be significantly upgraded for the sweet tooth of your family or cullinary friend. We also have beautiful little trinket bowls which make elegant little gifts, great for snacks or knick-knacks. This large serving bowl is stunning in our gallery!
The Bag Lady
For your gift recipient who is stylish and mature but with a sense of fun, Red Cuckoo handbags come in all shapes, sizes and colours and are also surprisingly affordable for the quality and finish. Larger bags come with a matching make-up bag included and are ideal for those who like to carry around all but the kitchen sink …and still look stylish!
The Perfectly Punctual Gent
We have a selection of beautiful watches by Storm, which will keep the recipient checking the time, just to admire the sleek and streamlined timepiece on his wrist.
A watch is one of those traditional gifts which never gets old – and certainly not with the beautiful modern styles available in the gallery.
Pop into the Bute Gallery to browse our selection of Storm watches, and remember, we offer Lay-away options for all of our items, for those who prefer to spread the payments over several installments.
The Inner Child
…and finally…do you have someone on your Christmas list who loves the quirky, the wonky and the colourful? We have had so much fun with these cushions – oranges, kiwis, donuts and even fish with more to come! These will brighten any corner and add one (or two, or three!) of your five a day to your home.
We hope to see you in the Bute Gallery soon!
