Which Christmas Shopper Are You?
With over 50 independent retailers, exquisite boutique shops, delicious dining and places to pamper yourself, Christmas shopping doesn’t have to be a stressful experience in Eastbourne. Here’s our guide to getting ahead of the game and making a day out of Christmas shopping!
Girly Shopping Trip
What’s better than picking a date and enjoying some TLC with your best friends? Doing all of that, plus getting your Christmas shopping ticked off! Begin the day with a scrumptious brunch at Miss Walls Back Garden for pancakes topped with blueberries, fuel for the day ahead. Get your hands on fabulous buys from boutiques like POSH, gift some jewellery from Taboo Jewellers and take a well-earned break in the evening at cocktail bar Maxims. If you’re undefeated by the shopping, why not carry the night on in Eastbourne’s many bars!
Mens Day Out
For the classic “get it all done in one day” job, look no further. With tonnes of boutiques and gift shops across Little Chelsea, you’re bound to find plenty of stocking fillers and gifts to keep your loved ones happy. When the day is done, it’s the perfect opportunity to reward yourself with a pint or two. From the Dew Drop Inn to The Dolphin to The Eagle, you'll wish you came shopping all the time!
Couples Shopping Date
Forget doing your Christmas shopping separately, why not team up and blitz the buying list as a duo? Explore Little Chelsea, fill your shopping bags and visit Beau-k Florist because you can’t go wrong with a bouquet of flowers for mum, whatever the occassion. Have a romantic evening at Eastbourne Christmas Market in December, sipping on hot chocolate and buying stocking fillers. When the day is done, why not have a ‘date night’ at Bibendum followed by a few glasses of wine?
Mother Daughter Shopping Day
Have a pamper with mum whilst getting those all-important errands sorted. Delve into the contemporary homeware stores, or get keepsakes and delightful gifts from Banana Tree. When you’ve shopped til’ you’ve nearly dropped, why not stop for tea and cake at Dickens Tea Cottage? Or reward yourself with a trip to Essential Beauty for a massage or manicure.
Shopping With Little Ones
Just because you’re pushing the pram it doesn’t mean shopping has to be chaotic. When you’ve pottered around the shops and need to recharge those batteries head to The Art House Creative Café. With a kids zone, the children can get stuck into some creative play while you have a coffee and a bite to eat.
