It’s that time of year again! Taste of Bath is popping up at the Bath Christmas Market with our fabulously festive hamper collection, featuring our beautiful signature Bath Boxes filled with delicious local food and drink – you can find us in Chalet 84 on Bath St, and our elves will be there to sort out all your Christmas shopping dilemmas until the 8th of December. Don’t forget we’ve got a great residents’ offer – free Taste of Bath tea towel with every purchase over £20, just show us your Discovery card!
You’ll also find plenty of our lovely Taste of Bath producers at the market, so it’s the perfect opportunity to say hello and find out more about their delicious goodies. And when it comes to non-foodie presents, we’ve rounded up five more of our favourite local businesses – so if you’re looking to shop local this Christmas (and we really hope you are) then read on…
Ubiety (Chalet 82, Bath St)
Ubiety offers a gorgeous range of all-natural pampering products, from hand soaps and moisturisers to scented candles and diffusers, and 100% of profits go to Dorothy House Hospice Care, so it’s the perfect way to give and give back. Not only that, but the products are carefully designed to be sustainable and vegan-friendly, and bring together several local businesses behind the scenes to make it possible (including the lovely Limelight Bath, who you can also find at the market) so it’s a gift that makes you feel good in every way possible.
Up to Seven (Chalet 48, Abbey Churchyard)
Looking for something for the little ones? Up to Seven produces possibly the most stylish kids’ wear in Bath, with a whole range of utterly adorable handmade clothes and accessories, plus a carefully selected collection from a few other small suppliers. Beautiful prints and fabrics as well as quality craftsmanship mean these are pieces that will wash and wear brilliantly, and we particularly love their reversible items – an incredibly practical and clever idea, as any parent will agree!
Pasha Living (Chalet 100, Bath St)
Newly launched earlier this year, Pasha Living have been upgrading the Instagram shots of Bath’s best-dressed with their gorgeous clothing and accessories, and now for the Christmas Market they’re introducing a stunning homewares collection. Featuring luxurious throws and bedspreads, embellished cushions and more, these beautiful textiles will make the perfect gift for stylish homebodies.
Please note – Pasha Living will be taking part in the second half of the market, from the 9th of December onwards
Gemma Atwell Jewellery (Chalet 116, Bath St)
The Bath Christmas Market always features plenty of gorgeous jewellery, but Gemma Atwell (formerly the Silver Shed, who you may well have seen at other local markets) particularly stands out because her creations are both elegant and original. Every item is designed and hand-finished by Gemma in sterling silver and gold – look out for wonderfully whimsical little touches, like her polar bear pendants or bangles stamped with snippets from her favourite books and plays.
Meticulous Ink (Chalet 67, Abbey Churchyard)
A deservedly beloved Bath business to finish on – Meticulous Ink supply some of the city’s most sophisticated stationery, combining old-fashioned methods and beautiful design. Forget the usual mass-produced stuff this year and treat yourself to some of their exquisite Christmas cards. We also highly recommend a gift voucher for one of their immensely popular lettering and calligraphy workshops, if you’re looking for a truly original gift for the person who has everything.
