With only weeks left until the big day (and perhaps only days until your office Secret Santa) now is the time to start picking out the perfect presents.
There’s no doubt that December is an incredibly busy time of year, so we’re making things a little easier for you with this Hatton Garden Gift Guide. We’ve scoured the local offerings and picked the best gifts which will delight even the most difficult-to-buy-for people. We’ve found options for all budgets, and it’s not just jewellery!
The best part is that when you buy from an independent business in Hatton Garden, you’ll be helping the local community to thrive. Happy shopping!
Age UK 2020 Calendar
If you want your cash to go to a good cause, consider choosing Age UK’s 2020 Calendar. It’s full of photos of Leather Lane, it’s only £4, and you’ll be supporting the vital services which Age UK provides to the older people in our community.
Who doesn’t need a wall calendar?! Pick up a copy from their Leather Lane Boutique or order online
Give a piece of jewellery a new lease of life
You don’t always have to buy something new for Christmas - have you considered getting an old piece of jewellery cleaned and polished up for party season?
If your other half has a favourite item which could do with a bit of TLC, surprise them by taking the piece in to a Hatton Garden jeweller
for repair or cleaning. You’ll be showing how much you care without breaking the bank!
Make a caffeine-lover’s day
The ultimate safe-bet gift which is sure to be appreciated is some fancy tea or coffee. Luckily there are plenty of options to choose from in Hatton Garden. Stop by Prufrock, Good and Proper Tea, or the Department of Coffee and Social Affairs to pick up a gift pack of special blends or some brewing accessories (and maybe a little something for yourself too).
poster shop on Leather Lane is a true independent gem. Visit to buy genuine vintage movie and music posters, vinyl records, official memorabilia and to take advantage of their framing service. Your originality will not go unappreciated! Prices range from happily affordable to push-the-boat-out.
Giving the gift of a plant is a massive mark of respect - it says “I think that you are the kind of person who is responsible enough to keep this alive”.
If you want to brighten up a colleague’s desk or your friend’s flat, visit Wildabout florists on Leather Lane to choose a beautiful bunch of flowers, a basket of bulbs, or a potted plant.
Unique gifts from Magma
In an age when most people only buy their books and magazines online, visiting Magma’s
store just around the corner from Leather Lane is a treat in itself. You could happily spend a whole lunch hour browsing the shelves, or just make a beeline for the artsy magazines, coffee-table books, or hand-printed bags. Magma also stocks an impressive selection of gifts for children, so if you’re playing Santa Claus this year then be sure to send your elves to stock up here.
If you want to give a gift which will continue to be appreciated for the whole of 2020, membership to a boutique fitness studio is your best bet. Don’t want to commit to the whole year? Opt for a class bundle or a few Personal Trainer sessions. Find a run-through of the best gyms in Hatton Garden here
This wouldn’t be a Hatton Garden gift guide if we didn’t feature jewellery more than once. If you want to truly delight someone very special, go the extra mile by commissioning a bespoke item
. The process is actually much easier and less expensive than you might think! You’ll need to act fast though, as sometimes it can take a few weeks for bespoke designs to be completed. Find our list of recommended jewellers offering a bespoke service here
