1. Attend the Clifton Christmas Lights Switch-On

We particularly love the Clifton Christmas Lights Switch-On! The whole community comes together and 

2. Get Your Tree from Refutrees

It can be hard choosing where to get your tree! Natural or fake, big or small… so many decisions. Well, we’re deciding for you this year – go get your tree from Refutrees in Bristol to truly celebrate the season of giving. Their fabulous trees and lights are available online for delivery or at their pop-up location. Head to their website to find out more.

All of the profits from your tree go towards supplying their free shop for refugees with essential living items. They support partner charities, create safe spaces for isolated people and refugees, and help people seeking refuge to learn new skills, foster community, and take care of themselves. All in all, they’re a fantastic organisation and the best place to get your tree this Christmas in Bristol.


3. Attend a Wreath-Making Workshop

We loved our Wreath Making workshop with Blossom Co Floral Design a few years ago! It’s the perfect way to do something a bit different and get in the festive spirit. Keep your eyes peeled – we may be hosting even more workshops this year! 

This year, we’ll be attending a workshop with Clifton Flowers! We’ll see you there. From pumpkin arrangements at Halloween to Christmas wreaths, their workshops are a great way to get involved in the spirit of the season.

4. Christmas Shopping in the Clifton Arcade

With so many wonderful independent shops on our doorstep, Christmas shopping is easy! Forget the stress and make a day of it in Clifton Village. Meander through the Arcade, then head into Clifton Village. From plant shops to gift shops, clothing to food, there’s something for everyone in one beautiful, walkable area.

Our favourite shops in town for gifts this year are Pod, the Interior Oasis, and… us! We offer a range of gifts and experiences all year round, but they’re perfect for Christmas! You can browse our offerings here.

Wrap up warm! Our cure for rosy cheeks and frozen fingers? A pot of freshly brewed loose-leaf teas and some scones at No.4. Winter Afternoon Tea is the perfect way to relax this season. Especially after a long day in town!
