With Christmas just around the corner you may be a bit stuck on what to buy for some of your loved ones. Whether you’re buying thoughtful stocking filler gifts or more, we have something for everyone in your life at Coletta & Tyson Garden Centre this December.

Christmas isn’t all about the presents, but it is nice to show you care about someone with a small gesture in the festive period, whether you take inspiration from any of our favourite gifts, or you choose to get creative and make a handmade personal present. Spending time with your friends and family is the most important part of the holidays and we wish you all the best this Christmas.

We’ve pulled together some of our favourite gifts for your loved ones and created our Coletta & Tyson Gift Guide. Grab a cuppa, take a seat and have a read to feel inspired.



Buying a present for your mum is typically an easy task, they are usually happy with beauty gifts, anything that smells or looks nice, anything fluffy or practical. Here are our favourite things that any mum would be happy to receive on Christmas day.

We stock a range of Cath Kidston products in store, ranging from £8-25, so there is something for everyone. Our favourite pick is this “Christmas pamper hamper” priced at £25, this includes various products from bath salts, to lotions, and not only are the products lovely but the packaging is beautiful too. You could even get away without wrapping it up!

A practical favourite of ours are the Warmies microwavable slippers, they come in two styles and colours costing either £15 or £20. These slippers are not only a practical gift to keep her feet extra warm but we’re guessing they’ll definitely be an upgrade on the existing ones she owns!

We personally love the makeup bag; these can also be used to store anything in, priced at £16. The full range starts from £10.


Dads are often the hardest person to buy for, unless they have a new passion or something you know they have been after it can be a challenge to find them the perfect gift. These are our top gift ideas this year.

From their favourite sports players to comedians, an autobiography is a great book for a man. Not only is it a thoughtful present it’s also a nice gift that they can enjoy and learn from. If your father doesn’t follow anyone in particular, they may be interested in other topics such as machinery. We have a collection of books all about aircrafts and cars explaining the history of engines and showing lovely imagery. Our books range from £6-£10.

Another great place to visit for a great gift for dad would be in our Old Glasshouse Deli, stocking premium food and drinks these would make the perfect hamper. From chocolate liqueurs, meats and cheeses to locally brewed alcohol. Customise your selection and he will feel spoilt for choice on Christmas day.

We all know that dads love a gadget, and we have a whole range of Ooni products, from the pizza ovens themselves to the utensils to go with it. Whether you’ve already got a pizza oven ready for summer or want to treat the whole family and purchase one, we have something for every household. Our Ooni pizza ovens start from £249 and accessories start from £14.99.
