With the month of festivities well and truly upon us, it’s time to indulge, be merry and browse the shops for gifts for loved ones ahead of Christmas. For those looking for a unique Christmas present, the Royal Albert Dock has an eclectic selection of offerings, available nowhere else.

For the personalised gift…

Leather Satchel Company offers a beautiful range of hand-made leather goods, including some great Christmas gifts that can be personalized in store. From a perfectly crafted luggage tag (£15), to a metallic clutch bag (prices start at £40), there’s a whole array of goodies to choose from.

For the jewellery lover…

Local artists and makers contribute to a unique range of gifts and designs at the Nest. Finest Imaginary offer distinctive intricate acrylic necklaces, with one of the designs being Liverpool’s very own Sefton Park Palm House (£48).

For the foodie…

Lunyalita’s Spanish flavours never disappoint, with its deli brimming with all sorts of mouth-watering goods to buy as gifts for Christmas. The Paella pan gift set is packed with the finest bomba rice from Valencia – home of the paella, arbequina olive oil, Santa Domingo sweet paprika, and a flavoursome saffron-based paella seasoning (£30). Customers can also create their own bespoke hamper with whichever goodies take their fancy.

For the coffee lover…

Coffee lovers will make a beeline for a packet of Peaberry Coffee House and Kitchen’s Single Plantation Peaberry Bean from Fazenda Sertão in Brazil (£6). Peaberry takes its name from the ‘peaberry’ coffee plant, offering maximum flavour and an even roast, giving them a sweet toffee flavour with lemon-tart acidity.
