The British Import Shop has fantastic stocking stuffers from across the pond. There are not too many places that one can get chocolate, toffee, tea, marmalade, and so much more all the way from the UK in Edmonton. Looks may be deceiving because these little indulgences are straight from the UK and are made with different ingredients than the same brands here in Canada; these sweets are milkier and the chocolate will melt in your mouth just like it does half way across the world.
The British Import Shop has something for all the UK lovers on your shopping list this season. There are treats for kids, men, women, and some that are only available this time of year.
The British Import Shop carries Thorntons toffee in caramel or treacle, 12 year Bowmore Islay single malt scotch whiskey marmalade, selection boxes and annuals just for the holiday season. Selection boxes and annuals are gifts that kids in the UK wake up on Christmas morning excited to receive each year. They also carry toffee strips made by Wham, Refreshers, Tango, and Vimto too! If any these are on your list to pick up this year, you better hurry in because they will fly off the shelves fast!
Canadians may not understand the importance of tea and treats they way the UK does so if you are not sure where to start for this person on your list, they would love to receive Yorkshire gold tea which has more bold flavour or Yorkshire red tea which has a less bold flavour. Now to go with the tea they would enjoy Mr Kipling Bramley apple pies, Viennese Whirls or Soreen Fruity Malt loafs. But, if they are chocolate or candy lovers instead, you may want to go with Jelly Babies or Fry’s chocolate cream, orange cream, peppermint cream or good old fashioned Turkish delight for their sweet tooth.
The British Import Shop doesn’t just have tasty snacks; they also have gifts for soccer (or football) fans, Celtic jewellery lovers and even Coronation St. fans. They carry toques with various soccer teams for our cold Canadian winters, beautifully designed pendants that showcase the intricate Celtic patterns and t-shirts, calendars, mugs, tea pots, and glasses all bearing the Coronation St. name.
This is the store to go to for anyone on your list who holds a special place in their heart for the UK this holiday season.
