Cornish gifts – experiences
Left it to the last moment? Suddenly found yourself in need of an email-able pressie? Supporting a plastic-free theme and buying experiences? You've come to the right place: our pick of the best virtual presents across Cornwall to the rescue.
Cook up a storm
You’ll benefit too from gifting a loved one a cookery course at Philleigh Way. With fresh fish and shellfish landed daily, wonderful meat and vegetables grown on their farm and wild food foraged from woodland, hedgerows and river banks, inspire a love of Cornish produce that will last beyond the course.
Shape it real good
Apparently boards are like bikes (in that you can never have too many, so they say) – treat your favourite surfer to an intro workshop at OPEN in St Agnes to learn the basics of shaping their own board. If they like it, you can upgrade to the full course for next year.
Posh Pig stay
Give the promise of a night away with a gift voucher from The Pig at Harlyn Bay, to be redeemed when we’re allowed to travel again. There’s availability after Christmas if you’re local and can escape for a night, otherwise earmark a date for next summer.
Cove24 dinner and cocktails
Book a table at lush Newquay restaurant Cove24, write a nice note in a Christmas card telling the recipient your plans and you’ll make someone happy to be taken out for a drink or dinner.
A spa day voucher is always a winner, but if you’re local to St Ives you can also sign up as a spa member, which sounds pretty relaxing.
For grounded adventurers
This is a nice option for adventurers near and far – pay online at Finisterre and your recipient will be emailed their voucher, so they can then shop on line at their leisure, perhaps once they have some idea of when they can make plans again.
