Ealing has a fantastic array of independent shops, whether you’re looking for the perfect gift for a family member or simply looking to treat yourself. The Christmas shopping experience is a little different this year, and so for those of us who might not make it out to the High Street but still want to support independent and local brands in the area with their last-minute purchases, we’re adding some sparkle by sharing a round-up of COVID-secure boutiques.
Mooch, the award-winning independent gift shop in Northfields, offers homeware, clothing and accessories perfect for acing that dreaded Secret Santa! The store is open for click and collect up until 20th December, and remains open for customers with safety measures in place.
If you’d like to organise a present without leaving home, you can’t go wrong with a big, beautiful bouquet of flowers; the talented team at Blooms by Eberé creates impressive arrangements for every occasion and are still delivering to homes across London.
The Christmas and New Year parties might be taking place on Zoom this year but that doesn’t mean you can’t look your best. If you wanted to travel a little further afield this year, with your designers at least, Klein & Wallace stocks unique and stylish pieces from French and Italian designers. The store is also offering home delivery for customers who prefer to stay at home.
After a tough year, away from friends and family, many of us might be looking for more thoughtful, personal presents. If you’re in need of a handmade gift, All Original features ranges created by local artists from ceramics, jewellery, or affordable handmade cards. They’re currently offering a click and collect service for customers.
