Our top picks for Christmas - 2017
Christmas is fast-approaching, and with it comes the chaotic nature of Christmas shopping and gifting.
The thing is, at Ulster Weavers, we don’t really do stress and chaos; we prefer things to be calm, cosy and lovely. To help you feel the same way, regardless of needing to find those special gifts for family and friends, we’ve put together a short Christmas gift guide featuring some of our favourite items for some truly unique Christmas gift ideas.
Best of all, they’re all available online for delivery, meaning you get to skip all that frantic running about! Sit back, put the kettle on and enjoy the Christmas build-up…
For a comfortable home:
Working hard to keep your house warm this winter? One stylish and effective way to keep your home cosy is by using one of our draught excluders. Made from high-quality cotton and filled with polyester and sand for maximum insulation, they are available in a range of designs to suit any home.
Our choice would be the Hound Dog draught excluder (https://www.ulsterweavers.com/hound-dog-draught-excluder). Perfect for any dog lover!

For the baking lover:
It’s no secret that we love baking at Ulster Weavers. Thanks to the rise of shows like Great British Bake Off, we think the nation is rediscovering its passion as well. If you’re capable of producing fabulous show-stoppers, or just want your cake to look the best it can, our range of cake stands can help.
One of the most popular ones in our range is the Dotty Sheep cake stand (https://www.ulsterweavers.com/dotty-sheep-cake-stand). Using the same popular print as the rest of the Dotty Sheep range, the stand is made of high-quality ceramic, and can be taken apart for easy storage.

For the tea connoisseur:
We’re a nation of tea lovers in the UK. Nothing comforts people like a nice mug of tea and a comfy place to sit. If you have a tea lover in your life, now would be a good time to look at tea pots, they’re set to make a comeback in 2018!
Once you’ve found a tea pot that suits, team it up with one of our animal tea cosies, such as our adorable Scottie dog, (https://www.ulsterweavers.com/scottie-dog-shaped-tea-cosy) to keep their tea warm and looking fantastic!
All of our tea cosies can be found here: https://www.ulsterweavers.com/kitchen/tea-cosies
For the sofa:
Nothing brightens up a living room like a few cushions, does it? We’re very proud of our range at Ulster Weavers, with all our cushions made of 100% cotton with a dense polyester filling, for optimum comfort, and to ensure that the cushions stay plump and shapely.
Whatever colour scheme you’re going for, we’ll have a cushion to suit. For example, contrasting colours with grey is very on trend, and our Dotty Sheep cushion, with a different design on each side, will co-ordinate perfectly with any shade of grey!

For the home chef:
While not technically a Christmas gift, the chefs who work away in the kitchen on the big day deserve a few bits to make it more enjoyable!
Bring the Christmas spirit into the kitchen with one of our special winter ranges, featuring everything from oven gloves and gauntlets to Christmas tea towels and aprons. As with all Ulster Weavers products, unique designs are extremely important, and our winter ranges include snow globes, robins and festive garlands.
For truly traditional Christmas kitchenware try our Christmas feast range, designed in conjunction with Kelly Hall. Featuring a range of useful trays, coasters, mugs and tea towels, the design combines all the elements in a traditional Christmas dinner, meaning it can also act as an impromptu checklist if you’re worried you’ve forgotten something!
