Swan Christmas Gift Guide: Our Top 12 Picks

There are so many things for us to celebrate when Christmas arrives. Celebrate your loved ones with the help of our Christmas Gift Guide: Top 12 Picks...

There are so many things for us to celebrate when Christmas arrives. The cold crisp weather and cosy dark evenings, candles and hot chocolate, food and drinks… And, of course, Christmas Day! It’s a great time to acknowledge all that our loved ones do for us and this is our time to say a big thank you in appreciation of them. Picking gifts for our friends, family and partners can be a challenge, too, when it comes to getting the right gift! 

Sometimes it can feel like they already have everything they could possibly need already, especially having just had months of lockdowns and impulse/boredom bursts of online shopping. Well, if you’re struggling with ideas, our Christmas Gift Guide will give you plenty of unique and useful options to choose from. We’ve got you!

We’ve released our Christmas Gift Guide early this year to give you a heads up on the Black Friday discounts! Take advantage of the BF sale between 15th November and 3rd December, and leave yourself plenty of time to get the gifts wrapped.

Retro Stand Mixer

Everybody loves a gift that can be used all year round and can benefit everyone, so here you have it! The Retro Stand Mixer is the gift that you’ll be thanked for time and time again. This is the ideal present for somebody who loves baking, or possibly for somebody that’s tremendously inspired by GBBO, but just hasn’t been given the push to give it a go yet!

It holds a powerful motor without sounding too much noise. Your loved one will be pleasantly surprised with the mixer’s 8 variable speeds and pulse function, its powerful 800W strength to help them mix effortlessly, and its simple rotary switch. The mixer comes with a generous 4L stainless steel mixing bowl, allowing them to mix up large batches, this means huge tiered cakes, large loaves, or muffins to feed all of your friends and family.

Another GBBO inspired essential that serves as a thoughtful gift is the Retro Scales to match. Possibilities are endless with these Retro kitchen additions!

There’s nothing like the deep, rich smell of fresh coffee first thing in the morning, or whenever you need it most. If you have a loved one that is also a caffeine fiend, our Nordic Espresso Coffee Machine could be just the Christmas gift you’re looking for. It’s not only a sleek and stylish Nordic addition to the kitchen but also a simple and straightforward way to make barista-quality coffee at home.

The Nordic Espresso Coffee Machine holds 15 bars of pressure while boasting a 1.2L detachable water tank. The machine can fill 1 or 2 cups at once and is able to make Espresso, Cappuccino, Latte, Flat White and more! Say hello to steam pressure control, a die-cast boiler and 1100 wattage. The removable drip tray is easy to clean, and the machine includes a measuring spoon and coffee pressure, think stylish, think convenient.

A word of advice, buy it for a loved one that you visit often. Then you’ll be able to reap the benefits of this delicious coffee machine!

And if the Coffee Machine gift goes down a hit, why not follow up with a New Years’ gift with our Swan Set of 4 Double-Wall Cappuccino Glasses 250ml? They’re sleek and sit perfectly with the Nordic Pump Espresso Coffee Machine. Aesthetically pleasing kitchen counter? You got it!

There’s nothing better than being able to give someone a gift that they can use any time of the day and all year round. This cheeky Retro DAB Bluetooth Radio helps to make any house a home for your loved ones. Having spent months hidden away in lockdown, we’ve all come to appreciate that feeling of company, even if it is just some cheerful background noise.

Your gift-getter will be able to celebrate the cosy nights in with a cup of tea, a winter-scented candle and the lovely sounds of the radio (including 20 pre-set stations to choose from!). And if they only want their music? They’ll have the option to get their phone synched up to the device’s Bluetooth, then the only thing left to do is to sit back and relax.

Mornings aren’t just for coffee, of course! When it comes to starting your day off right, breakfast is just as important as a good cuppa. It truly is the most important meal of the day. Eggs are the perfect breakfast food, but they’re not always easy to get them just how you like them. The Swan Egg Boiler and Poacher takes all of the guesswork and uncertainty out of making perfect poached or boiled eggs. If the person you’re buying for lacks confidence in the kitchen, this is a great way to make their life a little easier.

They’ll be able to boil up to 7 eggs at once with a choice of 3 settings: soft, medium and hard. They can just set it up, sit back, and wait for the buzzer to sound, perfect eggs, with no fuss, every time. If you want to help your loved one to make a hearty, fun-loving breakfast with minimum hassle and maximum convenience, our Christmas Day Gift Guide has you covered!

We know that the Great British Bake Off has got everyone in the mood for baking, so why not treat your loved ones to a Swan Bread Maker. They’ll be able to create delicious home-baked bread for the whole family to enjoy with ease.

The Bread Maker features an impressive 12 modes to choose from, and you can make a variety of bread including basic white loaves, whole wheat, pizza dough, brioche and even cakes and jam.

Meaning it can make a delicious gluten-free loaf at the press of a button, perfect for those with gluten intolerance. 

It’s a gift that can include everybody, with the option to choose from either a 1.5 or 2lb loaf and bake to exact requirements. They’ll even be able to add seeds, chocolate, nuts or raisins, and the bread maker can even keep the bread warm for up to one hour after baking! It comes with a fast bake option which allows them to make bread in under an hour, or the handy delay-timer bakes bread in over 13 hours, so they can wake up to warm, freshly baked bread in the morning. You can’t really ask for a better gift than that.

Treat your loved ones this Christmas!

We’ve all had a trying time over the last year. For many of us, the support of our families, friends and partners has been vital. At the same time, many of us have been able to see them far less than we might have liked (especially around the time of Christmas 2020). As we begin to approach the light at the end of the tunnel, it is a lovely and essential time for us all to celebrate all that our loved ones mean to us. Now, more than ever do we need to hold together and support one another when we can. And there is no better way to say thank you for all that they do than a thoughtful and lovely gift.

We hope that our guide has given you all of the inspiration that you need to prepare for your gift-getting this Christmas. Let’s make up for lost time and appreciate our loved ones like never before!
