Here is this year’s final Wanstead Gift List – our list of good presents which can be bought from Wanstead shops.
It’s been collated by Wansteadium and readers, and is our annual contribution to avoiding a Mayan apocalypse coming to our beloved Wanstead High Street. So all readers are encouraged to do their duty.
â˜… Amber drop earings for approx Â£35 from Keatings
â˜… A place on sewing course from Stitch
â˜… Family photo taken in one of Wanstead’s parks nicely presented in a silver photo frame (Â£10) from The Art Shop
â˜… Silver open heart necklace from The Orange Tree (Â£12) [Reader writes: “It was present to myself and I’ve had loads of compliments since buying it last week.”] â˜… Wooden toys for toddlers, from the Pet Shop (Heads and Tails)
â˜… Cool iPhone-style cufflinks, Nicole’s
â˜… Hipflasks, the Art Shop
â˜… Diaries from Bennett’s newsagents
â˜… And our top selection: In a week that the Cabinet decided placemats were an appropriate present for the Queen, there can be no better present than Wanstead-themed coasters. From the Art Shop.
