Stocking Fillers at Hambledon’s Festive Fizz Gift Shop
 Currently in our Festive Fizz Christmas shop we have some wonderful gifts for Christmas this year. In particular, some very good stocking fillers!
We have some of the finest handmade Winchester Cocoa Company Chocolates, such as boxes of deliciously indulgent salted caramels, as well as some fun and festive dark chocolate advent calendars. Rich, luxury and local chocolates, available for you to enjoy throughout the festive period, or give as delightful gifts to friends and family.
Our festive fizz gift includes some quirky and unique gifts, including a few that may interest the wine lover in your life. Hambledon baseball hats and bottle stoppers, beautifully presented Champagne glasses (including an offer of 2 glasses for £25, or 4 for £40) are just some of the stocking filler gifts we currently have here at Hambledon. Not forgetting plenty of bottles of the finest Hambledon fizz and blue Hambledon aprons.

In the shop, we can provide pretty gift bags, gift boxes, leaflets about the Vineyard to accompany Voucher gifts, as well as ribbon and tags if required.
