Christmas Gifting For Your Muddy Match
Monday, November 23rd, 2020
Has Lockdown 2.0 given you more time on your hands? If so, why not take a leaf out of Muddy Matches HQ’s books and use this extra time to get organised for Christmas. We know that Christmas 2020 is going to be very different from our usual seasonal celebrations, but that doesn’t mean you can’t put time and thought into gifting your loved ones. We’re here to inspire you with some thoughtful and country-specific gift ideas to put a smile on your countryside companion’s face.
1. Create a local and seasonal hamper
At Muddy Matches we are passionate about supporting small, local businesses. So why not get online or visit your local farm shop and put together a massive hamper of scrumptiousness? So many of our local businesses are running click and collect, or chat and collect, services so give them a call and see what’s in stock. As we as supporting your local economy during this testing time, your Muddy Match will really appreciate the thought and the delicious contents!
2. Check out the Muddy Partner Offers
This year, we’ve partnered with some amazing rural brands to bring you some incredible offers that will set your tastebuds tingling! Check out the full selection here; we’ve got cheese, gin, coffee, fudge, meat and much, much more. Why not buy some for yourself too, so you can enjoy them together over a video call?
3. Read back over your messages and get some hints
You may not have spent as much time as you want with your #MuddyEverAfter this year but to make up, you may have exchanged more messages and emails than ever before. This is gifting gold! Take time to read over your past conversations and pick up on any items that they’ve mentioned or admired, and get buying! You’ll get extra points for your thoughtfulness too.
4. Hygge home style
This winter it’s likely we’re going to spend a lot more time in our homes in the evenings, so why not buy a few select pieces to help your country match create their own hygge in their home? From indulgent candles and twinkly fairy lights, sumptuous throws or cushions, novels or photography books to get lost in, or even a pair of super-cosy socks or slippers, your countryside match will love relaxing with them after a long day of work.
5. Deliver a dinner
Does your muddy match work long hours? Or do you know that they struggle for inspiration when it comes to cooking? It’s time to support your local restaurants and cafes by taking advantage of the new take-away services that many of them have launched this year. Whether it’s brunch or afternoon tea, a full-on gourmet dinner or a box full of sweet treats that you go for, this is one superb way to indulge your loved one. Get searching online to find a place near you.
6. Pet perfection
Are they a cat or horse lover? Own their own goats or sheep? There are plenty of essential, as well as luxurious, gifts that you can get that will give you kudos with both your countryside match and their animals.
