Best local spots for Christmas tree shopping this festive season

By Yuup

Friday 4 December 2020

As many of us venture out to find our ideal Christmas tree this weekend, why not support a small business as you choose. We're sharing some spots around the city where you’ll find your tree and maybe a local treat or gift while you’re there. Not only will you have a beautiful tree to take home, you'll be spreading some local festive cheer too...

Choose your tree and pick up a treat at Windmill Hill City Farm

You’ll find freshly cut Christmas trees from Secret Valley Farm this weekend at Windmill Hill City Farm. Pick up a Norway Spruce or a Nordmann Fir, both varieties measuring in at around 6 foot. While you’re there, visit the farm shop for a selection of independent products - and personalised Christmas hampers. This year the farm has a ‘fill your own hamper’ station with a variety of luxury gifts to put inside, including lots of tasty food treats.

Save a Christmas tree at Avon Valley

Head to Avon Valley Adventure & Wildlife Park for a choice of beautiful trees that have been passed over by the supermarkets for not being quite perfect enough. Avon Valley saves these environmentally friendly trees, grown in South Wales, so you can buy yours online and then pick it up in their tree area just outside the main car park (pictured above, photo credit Avon Valley DriveThru). Looking to the new year, why not plan to visit Avon Valley for one of their animal experiences or for a train ride on the Strawberry line miniature railway

Pick a Bristol Christmas tree on bustling North Street

This year Bristol Christmas Trees are using The Steam Crane pub garden on North Street to house their quality tree offering. There’s a huge selection to pick from, and there might even be a mulled wine on offer from The Steam Crane to keep you warm as you choose. While you’re on North Street, why not pop into Trylla next door and look at their lovely selection of gifts and stocking fillers. Or make your way down to KASK, to choose some of their tasty organic takeaway wine to enjoy when you get home and into the warm. A little further down you'll find Upfest open again, with a range of prints and paints that would make lovely gifts. 

If you're looking for other ways to shop small and support local this Christmas, why not gift someone special a local Bristol experience. For ideas and inspiration including gifts under £50, head to our Christmas shop.
