6 online gift shops based in The Cotswolds

The season of giving is almost upon us and while we're all thinking about what to get those special people in our lives, a second lockdown has turned up on our doorstep making gift shopping a little different this year.
Many stores are physically closing for a month but it's still possible to support those local businesses that have their virtual doors open so we can indulge in retail therapy throughout November. We know that it can be difficult to find those special, one-of-a-kind gifts online, so we've chosen six of our favourite online gift stores based in The Cotswolds, where you can find presents that are truly unique. All of these shops are independent businesses that we love, specialising in beautiful gifts from home furnishing to pamper sets.

Vicky and Jenny from Cologne & Cotton started out with their passion to produce quality, affordable bed linen. With a belief that nothing is better than pure cotton to sleep in, we think that the gift of beautiful sleep is perfect for winter!

Their soft furnishing covers everything from bed linen to towels and tablecloths, all designed in the trademark candy stripes, bright contemporary checks or timeless classic white embroidery. For a gift that ignites the senses, check out their fragrances, all produced in-house and bottled as perfumes and home fragrances, displayed in gorgeous vintage inspired bottles.
