Who doesn’t love a bit of Birmingham-based merch for Christmas? From quality shaving brushes to stylish ceramic mugs, we’ve picked a selection of stocking fillers to give your gift lists a flavour of this fine city:
Shepherds Grooming, Great Western Arcade
This Shepherds Grooming Shaving Brush, Super Badger is handmade in Sheffield and features the salon’s logo and branding. The finest, highly polished polyester is used and the shaving brush is filled with super badger hair.
Tilt, City Arcade
Tilt, in City Arcade, offers the best craft beers, coffee and pinball. Recreate a touch of Tilt at home with this awesome Friends Mug, an 8oz ceramic camper mug which, thankfully at this time of year, doesn’t require you to only use it when camping.
Yorks Café, Stephenson Street
Sign up for a Yorks Café subscription and not only do you get expertly-sourced Yorks coffee delivered to your door at the amount and frequency that works best for you, but the team will also add a white or black huskee cup with your first delivery.
Loki Wine / Punks & Chancers, Great Western Arcade
The brains behind the great ‘YES BAB’ tee-shirts, Punks & Chancers, have created this lovely stainless steel engraved hip flask, available through the Loki Wine website.
Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery
Take a piece of Brummie artwork home with this exclusive mug featuring James O’Hanlon’s drawing of his panoramic view of Victoria Square from the Alpha Tower. The illustration is called Birmingham 2012 and the mug is available from the Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery online shop.
