We hope your Christmas shopping is going well, and that you've managed to find some real treats to show all of your loved ones how much you care. It's the best time of year to treat the people in your life and spread good cheer to all those around you, but we know how stressful Christmas shopping can be when you're short on gift ideas.

We thought we'd remind you of the wonderful gifts that we have in store here at Bookbarn, in the hopes that we'll inspire you somehow or help you to find just what you're looking for.

First of all, obviously a book is one of the two best gifts to receive (the other being socks, of course), and we luckily have plenty of them here at our shop. If you've got a book in mind, or just want some help finding the right book to gift someone, just give us a call on 01761 451333 and we can help you find what you're looking for. If you're not local, we can post it out to you. If you are local, then you can come on in and collect it, and see if there's anything else we can help you with while you're here.

Aside from all of our lovely books, we've also got some lovely gift items and Christmas cards.

We have these beautiful Sally Walker cards:


These amazing Beatrix Potter Christmas Cards:


These positively evil Grinchmas cards:


These insanely cool mugs, from Unemployed Philosophers:



These seriously cool Magnetic Poetry sets:


Some Orinoko Folded book earrings:


And last but definitely not least,

These beautiful Literary quotes perpetual calendars, from Literary Emporium.


All of these items are currently in stock in our shop. Come and have a look!

We also recently held a Winter Fayre in our shop and cafe, which you can read about here. We hosted lots of local craftspeople and small business owners, and in the lead up to Christmas we'll be sharing some of their information and some pictures of their lovely goods to give you some gift inspo.

This week, we'd like to spotlight the lovely Coco and Ned - makers of quality Christmas decorations.


"We are a family-owned and run small business based just outside Bath, selling our own unique range of crafted Christmas decorations for the tree & home. We are absolutely passionate about Christmas & each Yuletide attend some fabulous charity fairs and Christmas markets across the West Country and beyond."

You can find them on their Facebook or Twitter.
