The Siop Y Pethe Christmas Gift Guide 2019
If you really want to get into the Christmas spirit pop into Siop y Pethe. Obviously, we’re biased but there’s so much more to it than that! Our special town of Aberystwyth really comes alive in the wintertime.
Siop y Pethe is situated in a beautiful building on the corner of Terrace Road right at the bottom of Aberystwyth’s main shopping thoroughfare Great Darkgate Street. It’s a real meeting point for the town. Where the Xmas tree stands, carols are sung and the fairy lights glow.
But enough about that. It’s mid December and you still have presents to buy!
Pop into the shop for quirky, unique clothing, music, books, toys, homeware and beauty products all with a Welsh twist! Just ask our friendly team if you need any advice or inspiration!
Siop y Pethe Perfect Christmas Gift Guide
The perfect Christmas Gift for: Mam
How about a beautiful handmade necklace from Buddug. Our favourite is this one with the word ‘Mam’ inscribed into the heart shaped enamel. Each piece is made individually, and is one of a kind – just like your Mam!
Other pieces by Buddug that we love include her teapot and teacup necklaces and one of our most popular pieces the “calon lan” necklace!
The perfect Christmas Gift for: Dad
“It is a sweltering August in Aberystwyth: the bandstand melts, the Pier droops, and Sospan the ice-cream seller experiments with some dangerously avant-garde new flavours”.
From Aberystwyth with love by Malcolm Pryce is another fabulous Louie King mystery from the king of Welsh noir. If your dad is more of a music lover, we have a brilliant collection of cd’s by artists from Rhys Meirion to Elin Fflur
The perfect Christmas Gift for: Your Brother
Is your brother “a weekend rebel from his crown to toe?!” This brilliant t-shirt from one of Siop y Pethe’s favorite brands Draenog will make sure everyone knows!
