Swansea City Centre Christmas Shopping
Nov 23, 2020
Swansea City Centre businesses have been there for us, stepping up their deliveries and keeping us all well-stocked during the pandemic. Let’s return the favour and give them a cwtch for Christmas, by shopping locally.
This year more than ever, local businesses need your support, so we are encouraging everyone to #shoplocal. By doing so, more of your money stays within Swansea, allowing business owners to provide for their families and their staff, as well as keeping the shops in business over the festive period and beyond. Scroll down to find out how you could win Christmas on us!
Where should you start your shopping in Swansea City Centre? Here are our recommendations.
Our wonderful selection of shops has gifts to suit all of the family. For toys, games and presents for the kids, take a look at Teddy Mountain, The Gamers’ Emporium, Console Action, Arlene’s Sweetie Jar and Warhammer Swansea.
Beautiful choices for the ladies or the home can be found in Valley Mill, Attica, Jigso Cymru and Nebos Swansea. If you’re venturing away from trusty socks for men this year, check out Moda or Moustache for fashion gurus and Derricks and Swansea Bay Records for music lovers.
For the friend who has everything, why not buy a voucher for their favourite bar, restaurant, salon, hotel or venue? You can buy gift vouchers for Madeira Swansea, Storm in a Teacup Coffee House, Rani’s Brow and Eyelash Lounge, Plantasia and The Grand Hotel Swansea. For gin lovers, take a look at Cygnet Gin for distillery tours or taste their new Cherry Liqueur. If your favourite restaurant, salon, shop or venue isn’t mentioned here, give them a call to find out what gift options they have.
