Our Top Picks for all your Christmas Gifting Needs
I know how busy Christmas can get. There are chestnuts to be roasted, trees to be tinselled and Christmas puddings to ignite. Sometimes, there just aren’t enough days on the advent calendar to get everything done.
That’s why I’ve put together my top picks from The Gromit Unleashed Shop, for all your Christmas gifting needs. Whether you’re after simple stocking fillers or the perfect gift for an avid Aardman fan, get inspired by my festive favourites, today.
C’mon, lad! Is it time for a stocking yet?
Trust me, I know how hard it can be to choose which festive Gromit Unleashed figurine to add to your collection. There are just too many crackers! Luckily, I have the ulti-mutt solution: The Gromit Unleashed festive hanging Christmas decorations. From the elegant ‘Prima Featherina’ to the super cool ‘Ice Ice Puppy’, these wooden decorations, with their robin-red ribbons, make a real statement beside my bog-standard baubles.
But decking the halls with decorations just isn’t enough, so I’m going to dress to impress with a Christmas sculpture glitter pin badge. These pins are just the thing to brighten up your office party outfit and add life to lanyards, bags, coats and more.
Available in two of my favourite festive designs, ‘Noël’ and ‘Santa Paws’ the whole family will be wearing them at Christmas lunch this year.
Gifts for Kids
Buy yourself some quiet time with my top treats for kids.
The kids are making a list, they’re checking it twice, and guess what? Christmas Gromit large stuffed toy is always at the top! Dressed and ready for the colder months in his Santa hat and scarf, the little ones are paw-sitivley prepped for some festive fuzzy cuddles.
Between mince pies and unwrapping presents, it’s always a joy to unleash your little one’s artistic side. The Gromit Unleashed Christmas creative activity set is a real game-changer come Christmas morning, or perfect if you’re putting together a Christmas Eve box. Choc-a-block with activities, from colouring sheets to a game of spot the difference with the infamous ‘Gingerbird’, here’s hoping it keeps the kids distracted, during Christmas dinner preparations.
Challenge the most artistic grandkid with jungle paint by numbers. Featuring the raw-some Gromit Unleashed animal sculptures: ‘Grants’, ‘Grrrrromit’ and ‘Cubby’ there are hours of wild painting antics ahead. I’m hoping it might buy me a couple of hours to watch the Strictly special in peace.
Grab some Gert Lush Gifts for your Bristol Buds.
Now, what to get for those Bristol besties? They already have a framed print of Clifton suspension bridge and a beautiful bit of Bristol blue glass, what to get them next? Hello Gromit Unleashed’s new Bristol Collection.
After a long day of mooching around the Christmas market, find yourself the nearest kettle and make your mate a cuppa in their brand-new Bristol winter latte mug.
And if you can’t treat yourselves to something sweet at Christmas, when can you? Open up a box of the Bristol Hound gert lush tripple chocolate fudge. Sure, it might be a gift for them, but it’d be rude not to share...
Shaun the Sheep
Get Merry with Mossy Bottom Farm.
No need to drink from the trough. Treat your nearest and dearest to the most baa-ewe-tiful water bottle on the Mossy Bottom market: Shaun the Sheep metal water bottle. The fleece top is great at keeping my drinks warm during those chilly winter months.
My go to for when you really want your friends or family to stand out from the flock, is the Shaun the Sheep soft toy keyring. A baa-rilliant addition to bags, keys and belt loops.
This year, I’m sending one to my friend, who’s off travelling in the New Year. They’re going to love getting a photo of Shaun the Sheep in front of all the amazing sights on their trip.
I’m also sending them a little something for the long plane journeys, the ‘Where’s Shaun’ search and find book’. With over 1001 things to find, this book’s sure to be a serious boredom buster.
Wallace and Gromit
All I want for Christmas is...ALL things Wallace & GromitIt’s a truth universally acknowledged that any serious Wallace & Gromit fan needs a Gromit Head Mug. You’ll look like a right mug if you don’t have one!This makes the Gromit head mug the perfect gift for new Aardman admirers, and the ideal hot chocolate vessel at Christmas (go heavy on the whipped cream to give Gromit a wacky wig). Then you can sit back and take in the delightful sights of their Christmas tree, which ought to be decked out in The Wrong Trousers hanging ornament!
If, like me, you’re counting down the days till Spring, grab your Gromit lovers a Gromit solar pal! As the days grow lighter and brighter, watch Gromit nod in agreement that, although we LOVE Christmas, it’s definitely time for some sun.

The Rest of the Best
When I think of Christmas, there are three words that pop into my head: Jumpers, board games, and decorations. That’s why these three items have stormed their way to the top of my Christmas Shopping list.
Firstly, get the living room feeling festive with one of my all-time favourite figurines ‘Fleece Navidad’. Keep cosy in matching Gromit knitted fairIsle Christmas jumpers, with children’s sizes available for the first time this year! If you're prepared to brave family board games, take a look at the Bristol edition of Monopoly. You might find yourself landing on The Grand Appeal community chest if you’re lucky!
If you’re after a cracking Christmas, look no further than The Gromit Unleashed Shop for all your seasonal shopping.
