Gifts for all Occasions at Havens

claradonpairOur lovely customers at Havens are a generous lot and our beautiful ranges of gifts are among our top sellers, both online and in store.

From Anniversaries to christenings and weddings, our customers say that a good browse at Havens provides inspiration and, ultimately, the perfect gift, whatever the occasion.

Special anniversaries in particular can cause a bit of head scratching.  What do you give a couple who have been married 25, 40 or 50 years (apart from a medal, yes, I know you get less for murder!).



Waterford Crystal has a fabulous range of crystal glassware specifically designed for those anniversaries, including Champagne Flutes and Vases.  Stylish and elegant, they are an ideal keepsake and useful too!

We are also one of the few retailers to stock a wide range of cut glass, still a popular choice to mark a special occasion.  Royal Scot is excellent quality and reasonably priced and all items come in smart presentation boxes. Whisky and brandy glasses are a particular favourite for birthdays and vases and rose bowls are also top selling gifts.  For weddings boxes of 6 glasses are often given, leaving the way open for the happy couple to carry on collecting the rest of the range.


Baby and christening gifts can also be a challenge.  It’s always nice to find something that can be kept through the years and a china nursery set is a gift that has stood the test of time, remaining a top pick.

Border Fine Arts make the gorgeous Beatrix Potter sets, featuring Peter Rabbit and Jemima Puddleduck and Royal Doulton continue to make their charming Bunnykins range.

There are also contemporary choices from The Gruffalo, The Hungry Caterpillar and Jamie Oliver – something for every taste.



Steiff Bears are another lovely Gruffalotraditional gift, as are Royal Selangor’s lovely pewter egg cups and ornaments.  And who can resist the gorgeously soft and tactile toys from Jellycat – if you buy one, you probably won’t want to give it away!

Swarovski Crystal also makes a fabulous gift, lending itself to all occasions.  It’s a big favourite on Valentine’s Day, with the Cute Kris Bear Range, featuring a bear holding a heart or red roses and saying it all for you.  The Swarovski Flower Range is also a winner on Mother’s Day – beautiful and thoughtful – just like Mum.



Buying a really special gift is a big responsibility and we’re happy to see our customers breathing a big sigh of relief as they find what they’re looking for at Havens.  And our experienced team are always on hand to offer suggestions and advice, as well to gift wrap all purchases.
