We’re sure you’re starting to think about Christmas presents 🙂
Receiving them is great, but buying them for others can sometimes be a bit stressful…there’s always that one person who’s a little bit tricky to buy for.
You possibly need something a bit special, and a bit different from the things you’d find in the largest retailers on the high street.
Don’t worry – we know just the place 🙂
Wrexham Tourist Information Centre
Yes folks, if you need a bit of inspiration, your TIC is the place to shop this Christmas…
They’ve got some great items on sale that would make wonderful Christmas presents, so where shall we start?
Aber Falls gift set
The TIC has a great Aber Falls gift set currently on sale containing a selection of five different gins and liqueurs.
For those of you that aren’t familiar with Aber Falls, all their products are produced and bottled in North Wales. So aside from being delicious, this gift also has a local touch too!
And if you’re looking for something even closer to home, how about the Wrexham Lager gift set they also have on sale?
After a non-alcoholic present? There’s plenty of those too 🙂
Forget the big brands, this is North Welsh chocolate at its best!
These chocolates are made in Rossett, Wrexham and they make fantastic presents because they look great on the outside, but they taste even better.
You’ve got a choice between a chocolate reindeer, a chocolate pizza, or one of their truffle selections. You could even go all out and give someone one of each.
Got any friends or relatives who enjoy live music? How about this gift…
New Year Gala Concert
New Sinfonia are performing on Saturday, January 5 and you can purchase your tickets from the TIC 🙂
The concert takes place at St Giles Church, Wrexham (3pm) and tickets are £15 for adults, £12.50 for concessions, and £4 for students.
There’s also Welsh Christmas cards for sale, and some cool little gingerbread decorations you can buy too.
And if you need reminding about some of the other stuff we’ve talked about in the past, here’s a quick recap.
Other local gifts
Have a quick browse around the TIC and you’ll find: uniquely designed Welsh slate jewellery, handmade pillows and cushions, high quality Tweedmill blankets, a selection of Welsh dragon gifts, and many quirky handmade gifts too.
Did you know the centre stocks a variety of local foods such as sauces, teas, biscuits, jams, chutneys and curds? Well they do, and they’re delicious.
Amanda Hill, a tourist information advisor at the centre says:
“Call into the Tourist Information Centre and have a look at our range of local Welsh gifts and food.
“And don’t forget – we sell a variety of tickets for local events. We have discounted Chester Zoo tickets for sale and we sell National Express coach travel too.
“A lot of people are unaware of the diversity of our products, therefore why not call in and see for yourself?”
So there you have it…
We’re off to buy concert tickets and some Aballu chocolates, so we’ll catch you later
