Stationery & Gifts

Gifts and cards

If you're stuck for a present, here are some helpful suggestions:

  • A Dikes jute bag filled with local ales or ciders, or a selection of local produce
  • A hamper stuffed with cheeses or other goodies please ask at the Deli for details
  • A beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers
  • Chocolates: from a large tin of Cadburys Roses to an exquisite selection of hand-made truffles, we have something for every taste, including organic.
  • We have a good selection of recipe books and children's books and DVDs
  • You cant go wrong with a Yankee Candle we have a massive selection or local candles from Lily-Flame, plus tealight holders
  • Trays, oven gloves, teapots and mugs
  • A Dikes cup and saucer set (see our display in the Cafe)
  • A special bottle of single malt whisky or Somerset Cider Brandy (we have some jolly strange and exciting bottles in the drinks department) or champagne
  • A boring pair of socks

And if after all that you STILL cant decide, buy a Dikes Gift Voucher so that they can choose something themselves, or enjoy a cream tea or lunch in the Cafe. (We have a lot of greeting cards made by local artists and photographers that seem to fit our Gift Vouchers perfectly).
