Now that the school holidays are here, those who have little ones of their own (or little ones they love) will have more family time on their hands. Quality time with kiddos in the sun is one experience that can’t be rescheduled – so make the most of summer with holiday gifts that the whole family can enjoy.
Well-timed gifts for the summer holidays are the perfect way to show support for parents as they manage extra childcare. Not to mention an extra treat or two can bring families together and help make sunny, funny memories for life.
Our brand new range from The Cherry Tree features a mouth-watering BBQ Essentials Collection, which covers all your grilling needs!
Each gift contains 5 large jars of Cherry Tree chutneys and pickles, carefully chosen to compliment grilled meats, veggies and that all-important halloumi. From Smokey Tomato & Garlic Chutney to a classic BBQ Relish, it’s just the ticket for a family barbeque.
Gifts to get stuck in
We know the one thing little ones miss about school (apart from their friends) is a fun-filled and ideally quite messy crafternoon. 😂 Encourage kids and their grown ups to get creative together with make-at-home pottery gifts by Sculpt. Choose from the Pottery & Paints Kit, Home Pottery Kit or the Candle Making Kit (ideal for teens!). Recipients can pick their preferred paints and glazes, for a totally unique gift that will take pride of place next to the family photos.
Make summer blockbusters extra epic
