Christmas Gift Boxes

 

Let us do all the hard work for you – no need to pick and choose from our vast selection of lovely, natural honey and beeswax products, we’ve put together some delightful skincare gift boxes that are the ideal treat for gardeners, beekeepers and natural beauty aficionados alike.

Take your pick from our flower selection, simply skincare or honey and lavender goodies – these are bound to be well received on Christmas morning.

Honey Gift Packs

 

Got a friend or family member who is a big foodie? Then we’ve got the perfect gift for them! Make their Christmas dinner complete, with the addition of our delicious crunchy honey mustard and unique honey variations.

Our honey is produced by our own bees in the 1,800 hives we have situated throughout Northumberland and the Scottish Borders and come in a selection of delicious, natural flavours – buttery, flower set honey can’t be beaten on Christmas morning!

Beekeeping Books

 

Do you have a budding beekeeper in your midst? Treat them to a wealth of knowledge this year, with our beekeeping books for all levels.

‘Reflections on Beekeeping’ is a must have gift for beekeepers of all experience levels, covering invaluable tips on how to keep your bees alive and well and producing amazing honey and beeswax products.

Beeswax Candles

 

Ditch the synthetic candles this year and opt for something traditional and natural instead. A wonderful stocking filler for all the family and in all shapes and sizes! Light up the room with hand-made Christmas tree candles or delight with 100% natural beeswax candles in fun, animals moulds.

Stocking Fillers

 

Finding stocking fillers that aren’t just a big waste of money can be a challenge, but we’ve got some lovely little bits and pieces that are perfect presents from Father Christmas!

For ‘him’, we have our 100% natural moustache wax in a quirky vintage-style tin; or how about a lovely beechwood honey dipper to go with that honey gift set? Our natural honey-based soaps are also a great choice for all the family.

The Chain Bridge Honey Gardener’s Gift Guide

Is it too early to mention Christmas? Probably, but just in case you’re thinking about it already, have a birthday coming up or fancy treating someone special who loves gardening we thought we’d put together the perfect gardener’s gift guide!

Our online shop is packed full of great gift ideas for anyone who loves to potter around in the garden, from practical items to luxury bits and bobs – there’s something for everyone.

To help you put together the ideal gift basket or Christmas stocking (or perhaps you just fancy treating yourself!) here is our gardener’s gift guide:

Hand Cream

Hard-working hands are a inevitable product of avid gardening, so help keep those mitts soft, soothed and smelling beautiful with one of our 100% natural and deeply moisturising hand creams.

We’ve got a scent to suit everyone, from summer burst to fill your nostrils with warm, floral aromas, to the more unisex scents of citrus or lavender.

The essential oils we use in our hand creams aren’t just for smell though – read all about their beneficial properties in our blog ‘Essential Oils & Why We Use Them’ to discover the right one for you.

Beeswax Polish

How about something that can be put to good, practical use? Our beeswax and carnauba furniture polish had to get a mention in our gardener’s gift guide, for the all important finishing touches on wooden garden furniture, or maybe even woodworking projects that get created in the garden!

This superior quality polish is exactly what you need for enduring protection and shine. Your gardener in mind will love this useful addition.

Beekeeping Book

It’s not at all unusual for people who love being in the garden to have a keen interest in bees – they do help flowers and plants flourish after all!

There are endless benefits to beekeeping, for us as individuals as well as the planet, so taking up beekeeping is a fantastic thing to do.

Point your loved one in the right direction for getting started with this invaluable book for beginners, ‘More Beekeeping Hints for Beginners’ by Ann Middleditch.

Natural Ointment

The odd scrape, scratch and sting comes hand in hand with regular gardening, so including one of our healing ointments in our gardener’s gift guide was essential. Speed up the repair process with just a small dab of your chosen ointment – a little goes a long way.

For really impressive healing results, try our honey and oat ointment with added Propolis. Propolis is absolutely fantastic for fixing up any minor wounds: you can read all about it here.

Honey Soap

Once it’s time to pack up and come inside, clean up in luxury with one (or a selection of) our gentle honey and beeswax soaps. Suitable for even the most sensitive skin and containing no less than 8% honey and 8% beeswax from our own hives for a luxurious experience, our soaps are a real treat.

Available in a wide range of natural scents and hand-wrapped in colourful, waxed paper, making these a great addition to our gardener’s gift guide.

Tweedside Honey

It’s hungry work slaving away in the garden, so revive with a cup of tea and a slice of toast slathered in our delicious, mild honey.

You may have noticed that we’re pretty proud of our honey products and eating it has got to be of the best ways to enjoy our beekeeper’s and bee’s hard work!

Coming straight from our 1,800 hives in Northumberland and the Scottish Borders, it doesn’t get any better than this. A must have in the gardener’s gift guide.
