Swansea is brimming with top spots to pick up beautiful, unique gifts that your loved ones will adore. And whether you’re an organised shopper or a last-minute panic buyer, we have some inspiration for you. Take a look at our Christmas gift guide:
Handmade Trinkets and Unique Gifts
If you’re looking for unusual gifts and handmade pressies, then look no further than the Christmas Street Market; this is the perfect place to pick up arts and crafts, and bespoke and personalised gifts for your friends and family. Taking the time to peruse the stalls will really show when your loved one unwraps that heart-felt package on Christmas day.

If you’ve got a foodie in your life, then getting them something scrumptious is the obvious choice, but don’t just rush to the supermarket and grab them a box of chocolates or a cooking gift set, get them something special instead.
Pop along to So Cocoa in The Mumbles where you can choose a selection of fine chocolates to gift or something a little quirkier – why not pick up chocolate building blocks or a chocolate chess set if you’re buying for someone who’s young at heart? They’ll love it!
If your foodie doesn’t have a sweet tooth, then head to the Christmas Street Market or to one of the many delicatessens in Swansea’s Indoor Market. A nice welsh cheese and a jar of homemade chutney will surely go down a treat.
Cymru Am Byth
If you know someone who loves all things welsh, then you need to stop off at The Welsh Stall at Swansea Market; here you can choose from an array of welsh crafts and wools, perhaps even picking a love spoon for that extra special someone.
A Fine Print
Do you have a friend or family member who enjoys the finer things in life? Then what better way to cater to their tastes than with a unique print that they can proudly display in their home? Head over to the Swansea Print Shop on Clarence Street to choose an original print – they cater for an array of styles and budgets so you’re sure to find something great.
The Perfect Pamper Package
And finally, if there’s someone in your life who is always on the go, someone who is always taking care of others and never leaving time for themselves, then why not treat them to a pamper package for the Dragon Hotel in Swansea? A girls pamper day out would make a divine gift, and you may even want to indulge yourself while you’re at it … after all, all this Christmas shopping is hard work!
