Who doesn’t love a bit of Christmas shopping?! But what do you get everyone? It can be so hard to find the perfect present for that one person who has everything, or a token pressie for someone you perhaps don’t know particularly well. Here at Cordelia James, we have a gorgeous range of gifts, big and small, and here’s a selection we think are the perfect things to pop under the tree this Christmas…

Christmas Neom

Every year, Neom produce a divine Christmas collection. The gift sets make the perfect gift for a couple, or if you know someone who loves the brand already, a Christmas addition will be gratefully received. Available in the Hawkhurst store.


These match bottles and decorated boxes make the perfect accompaniment to one of the Neom Candles. They look lovely on display and can just add extra fun to your present. Boxes available in Hawkhurst & Rye. Bottles available in all three stores.

Cody Foster Decorations

Make your tree the one everyone talks about after the party with these unusual decorations. From sparkly beetles to gold fish wearing crowns. If you’re looking for a statement decoration this Christmas, these are for you. Available in the Hawkhurst store.

PomPom Galore

Fill their stocking with colour! These are the perfect gifts for your little (and big!) girls. The garlands will look wonderful in their bedroom and the pom pom charms will certainly be something to show off on their school ruck sack in January. Available in the Hawkhurst store.

Lancaster & Gibbings Keyrings

These pewter keyrings are a wonderful stocking filler. The different designs make for an unusual present, and your recipient will always be reminded of the gift you gave them when they pick up their keys. Available in all three stores.


‘Tis the season for sparkly socks and velvet. Sixton always make the best presents with their signature bees, butterflies, stars and lightening bolt pins. The sock tins can be reused for all sorts and the make-up bags will make a lush pressie. Available in all three stores.

Green Grove Weavers

Made in Scotland, these little mittens come in a rainbow of colours, so weather you’re buying for someone who loves an injection of colour, or someone who likes to keep things neutral, there’s a pair of mitts for them. Available in all three stores.

Starbust Lights

These are the present for the person who has everything. The lights come in two sizes and make an unusual gift. We’ve had repeat customers who have said they’ve kept theirs up all year and now their friends want one too! Available in all three stores.

Egos Slippers

With the weather guaranteed to be chilly for the next few months, a pair of slippers for Christmas wouldn’t be such a bad idea. As long as you know their shoe size, you choose the colours and the wrapping paper and they’re sure to keep their feet snuggly all winter. Available in the Lewes & Rye shops.

Hultquist Jewellery

This Copenhagen based brand looks so stylish on. The mixtures of 18k gold plate and sterling silver, with semi-precious stones is sure to have any girl swooning. Everything can be packaged up in branded tissue paper and boxes for that extra luxurious feel without the luxury price tag! Available in all three stores.


Don’t forget we have a wide range of Christmas cards, as well as wrapping paper and gift bags in the Hawkhurst store to make your presents look as good as the gift itself.

Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas!
