Presents for Pampering – a Holkham gift guide

December 6, 2022 | Christmas | 5 minute read

December is here, the Hall is decked, and the Holkham team are all beginning to feel rather festive. With Christmas in mind, we have collated some of the gift shop’s beautiful and practical products to create a series of guides to inspire your gift-giving this year. Whatever your budget, we hope you’ll find something to suit whoever’s on your Christmas shopping list.

Our gift shop will be open daily until Christmas Eve with late-night openings on certain dates.

Presents for Pampering

In the first of our Christmas Gift Guides, we turn our thoughts to the pamper lover whose perfect evening includes a candle-lit bath, perhaps alongside a glass of wine or two, or that busy, stressed-out soul who may not make the time to enjoy this, but probably should!

We all need more self-care and less stress. These are the perfect gifts for those in need of some relaxation after hectic days at work, or someone who simply enjoys an indulgent evening now and again. Carefully made with natural products, they are the ideal gift for that person in your life who’s trying to be more sustainable. Help your loved ones (or yourself!) to slow down and enjoy some luxury during these darker months by treating them to some of these wellness gifts.

A stay at The Victoria

For a really special treat, book a night or two at The Victoria. Situated perfectly, just a few minutes’ walk from Holkham Hall, Park, the National Nature Reserve and beach, The Vic is a countryside restaurant and hotel with twenty bedrooms, each individually designed. Winter breaks can be enjoyed cosying up by the fire following a chilly walk outside, or book for the summer months to enjoy the long days and the big blue skies.

St Eval Candles, from £11.50

Inspired by natural surroundings, St Eval “tread softly on the earth, protecting flora and fauna.” Their scented candles, in beautiful pots, will fill rooms with fragrances to remind anyone of beautiful, coastal days, calm seas and mist.
