Stuck for gift ideas? Her Royal Highness can help!
Our development at Monaveen is set in Poundbury, part of the Duchy of Cornwall estate. We’re super proud of some of the great produce that’s created in this part of the world, some of which may be suitable for your Christmas shopping list!
Check out our list below of the best bits of the Waitrose Duchy Organic range – most of which are available at Waitrose here on Queen Mother Square – and get inspired for Christmas treats and gifts fit for a King (well, a future one..).
With the Waitrose Duchy Organic range providing top quality products, there are many great small gifts on offer. From craft ales to all butter mince pies, there is a treat to suit everyone at this most wonderful time of the year.
And you can feel good about it too; did you know that all sales of Waitrose Duchy Organic products provide a donation to The Prince of Wales's Charitable Foundation? This year, over £2.5m will be donated to the Foundation, supporting good causes across the UK with over £17m raised for initiatives such as the Duchy Future Farming Programme, which helps farmers develop more sustainable farming practices.
So, grab your coat and tote bag and head on down to pick out some of these fab Duchy products which we think make the perfect Christmas gifts. You could even create your own bespoke Duchy hamper…
- The Waitrose Duchy Organic Richly Fruited Christmas Pudding
A rich organic Christmas pudding, full of plump vine fruits, almonds and walnuts, and infused with cognac. Made by a company who have specialised in Christmas puddings for over a century, using fine organic ingredients, it’ll be a hit for the whole family.
- Golden Ale England
A refreshing light bodied ale brewed with British Wheat, Fuggles & Goldings Hops. This Golden Ale has been brewed using specially selected organic British hops, malted British barley and a small amount of British wheat to deliver a refreshing finish. The perfect pre-Christmas dinner pint!
- Rosemary & Thyme Oaten Biscuits
Baked in the heart of the Scottish Highlands, these delightfully crunchy biscuits are made with churned British butter and British stoneground oats including oats harvested from Duchy Home Farm at Highgrove, and aromatic rosemary and thyme. A must for any Christmas cheese board and especially good when paired with…
- Golden Cenarth
Soft cheese made with pasteurised organic cow's milk and washed in organic cider.
Take a break…but still shop!
And of course, when you are in the throes of your Christmas shopping, don’t forget to refuel at The Duchess of Cornwall Inn, which can be found in the heart of Poundbury at 12 Queen Mother Square.
Whilst relaxing with a warming mug of well-deserved mulled wine, browse the selection of gifts on display from local companies including Sea Stone Jewellery, Emmy and the Fox, Wild Bird, Poundbury Door2Door, For the Love of Stampin, Bert’s Bows, Fatnex, Maiden Candles, That’s Rich Artwork, Harriet Glen Creations, The Boardroom Blackboards and Floral Couture.
If you are visiting, we’d love to show you around Poundbury and our homes there; our team is at the show apartment every day. You can also read more about the development and get in touch with us here.
