Home for Christmas, since 1971

An emporium selling a unique variety of Christmas gifts and decorations. Discover this remarkable collection and its story.


A cosy mix of traditional decorations made from felt and fabric with stitched details and embroidery. The predominant colours tend to be red and white with some wood features.


Have lots of fun with this retro theme! Clashing colours of red, blue, gold and pink, featuring brightly coloured nutcrackers, sequinned red glittery balls, flamingos in socks… anything goes!

Winter Wonderland

This is the land of enchanted forests with snow and ice, accents of pale gold and silver glitter, mythical white unicorns and silver birds.


A vibrant mix of bright jewel colours such as emerald, sapphire, amethyst and ruby with accents of old gold. Inspired by colours of the Raj. The theme includes hand painted glass, Kashmiri baubles and bells, and luxurious peacock feather wreaths.


This new theme for Snape Maltings combines contemporary Scandinavian design with a touch of luxury; simple white shapes in ceramic, enamel and natural materials such as feather and drift wood offset with warm tones of gold, copper and bronze.
