Cornwall Living

A festive emporium

Discover a carefully curated treasure-trove of gifts, homewares and sweet-smelling treats.

We love Christmas and this year is no exception. You will find the High Street in Falmouth has everything to help you in your quest for the perfect Christmas gift, and the Grey Lurcher is no exception. With Christmas stock arriving daily, the team are slowly starting to merchandise the shop for that all-important Christmas shopping. Who doesn’t love browsing around all the creative independent shops in Falmouth?

As usual, The Grey Lurcher will have a wide range of gifts for everyone. For him, there are amazing aftershaves from French brand Durance, along with shaving soap, scarves if he likes to wrap up warm in the winter and, if he enjoys cooking, you’ll be sure to find something in the homeware section.

For her, Rosie Fox jewellery has been a new edition this year; think semi-precious stones in classic combinations, along with Diana Wilsons’ re-purposed vintage pieces. During the Christmas season, you’ll also find Diana’s luxury velvet, limited-edition cushions gracing the shelves, that add amazing bursts of colour and design to any room. Hand-poured soy candles from St Mawes Scent Room add a subtle coastal vibe while on a more feminine note, and inspired by a visit to a French abbey, Illumens’ range of candles and reed diffusers bring flickering flames and olfactory indulgence to your home.

At this time of year, The Grey Lurcher is the go-to place for stunning tableware. Amongst the displays you are sure find some elegant glasses along with beautiful ceramics to grace your festive table. But don’t stop there, add candlesticks and wall sconces, along with Christmas decorations and garlands, and this is really is an emporium where the Christmas magic happens. Open Tuesday to Saturday from 11am to 4pm, why not pop up to the High Street, where the friendly and helpful team at The Grey Lurcher look forward to welcoming you, and be sure to follow them on Instagram and Facebook for the a sneak peak of what’s in store.
