Whether you’re looking for British gifts for Christmas to give to someone who is going to the UK or just an anglophile who loves the UK, this is the ultimate list of British gifts that will make sure you find the perfect ones!
Some are physical (“I’d rather be in London” mug, anyone?), some are delicious (afternoon tea delivered to your house, yes that’s real), and some are just insanely useful (a step-by-step itinerary for when you do get to the UK – yes, please).
Express your love for the Queen, British history, and the beautiful British landscapes with these UK themed gifts!
1. Afternoon Tea and Scones
One of the most popular things to do in the UK for visitors is to get afternoon tea.
Whether you opt for the fancy one at the Ritz or a more casual one at a cafe, everyone loves trying their scones, clotted cream, and jam.
For US readers, I’ve got the perfect solution for you to have an afternoon tea with your family without ever having to leave your house!
I’ve partnered up with a Brit delivering afternoon tea boxes in the UK, and you’ll love the authentic taste (done in the actual British way, not the American scone way), as well as the jar of clotted cream, jam, and British tea included!
This makes for a great gift for others, or a fun thing to enjoy on Christmas day.
The scones are fresh, and can freeze when they arrive if you want to wait a little bit to eat them.
To purchase, just click the button below to get information about a provisional order so I can pass it over to the supplier (they’re a small business so we have to make sure they have capacity) and then get you over to their website.
2. “Ready for Tea with the Queen” Mug
You need something to drink your tea out of, duh!
Tea is one of the most accurate stereotypes about the Brits – loving it, drinking it, living for it.
We’ve designed a range of mugs to help you express your love for the UK and wanting to get back there, with sayings like “Ready for Tea with the Queen,” or “I’d Rather Be in London” (who wouldn’t?)
These make great stocking stuffers, and are a fun item to have in your kitchen.
3. Quirky Kings Tote Bag
These tote bags feature two-sides with kings saying things like “Get me on my good side!”
Whether you take this shopping with you or bring it as your travel bag, this is a great gift for teens or those obsessed with the monarchy.
Again, like all products in this guide, these are exclusive and cannot be bought anywhere else, as they were designed by a Brit that only I can convince to design things for you (my husband, if you’re playing along).
4. Keep Calm and Write On Notepad
I don’t know about you, but I’ve got a lot of feelings in 2020.
This year, why not take up journaling and get all of those thoughts and frustration down in a “Keep Calm and Write On” notepad?
Available in paperback or hardcover notebook, these are really fun gifts for the writers in your life.
5. I’d Rather Be in London Pin Badge
Whether you need some new pins for your jacket, your backpack, or to proudly wear around the house, the “I’d Rather Be in London” pin badge is a fun way to show your feelings for the UK and bring a little bit of that British magic into your daily life.
These are small and inexpensive enough to really be just a fun little side addition to the holidays, maybe as an addition to a stocking or to pin onto a stuffed animal or other gift and let your Anglophile know that you understand where they’d rather be on any given day!
