Antique gift ideas across the years

Antique gift ideas across the years


Individual and unique antique gifts will hold their value and bring pleasure and happy memories to the recipient for years to come. Of course, buying antique gifts is made easier when you know what the recipient likes but if not, fear not as we have plenty of ideas for you and here are a few of our top antique Christmas gift ideas.

Gifts for antique lovers

Why not offer to spend a day with us and let the antique lovers in your life pass an enjoyable few hours browsing our 4 buildings? Treat them to afternoon tea at Hemswell Antique Centres and let them pick a favourite piece. If you can’t be with your loved one in person, our antiques posted for £15 and our gifts for every occasion will have the perfect gift.

Antique gift ideas for her

A wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt – we all have someone special in our lives and the choice of antique gifts for her offers lots of inspiration. With over 1100 pieces of antique jewellery and gold to browse online, plus many more at our centres, you are bound to find the perfect piece. If jewellery isn’t her thing, a piece from a favourite pottery in our 20th century ceramics may be just the ticket. For fashion forward ladies who love a little Hollywood glamour, consider something unique and unusual that will become a conversation starter whenever anyone sees it – a perfume factice, used by perfume houses to advertise their products makes a gorgeous, decorative piece of interior décor and will last longer than a bottle of scent!

Antique gifts for him

The men in our lives are traditionally the most difficult to buy for but that doesn’t make it impossible to find the perfect antique gift for him. For the young and the young at heart, a gift from our Vintage Toys & Games is bound to be popular or, for the railway enthusiast, browse our Railwayana department for that perfect piece of railway memorabilia. An original piece of artwork is a thoughtful gift but if an original is out of reach financially, how about a signed print? Browse over 600 antique paintings and prints to be inspired.

Antique gift vouchers

Of course, there will always be people who really are impossible to buy for – perhaps they have very niches tastes and interests. For these people, a Hemswell Antique Centres Gift Voucher is the perfect solution! Starting from as little as £10, gift vouchers can be used for in-person purchases and may also be used in our coffee shops and restaurants. Gift vouchers can be purchased in person or over the phone on 01427 668389, and our staff can even arrange to send the voucher to an address of your choice. (Sent via Royal Mail – Signed For delivery service).
