Time spent in London is a gift all its own. From the history, shopping, dining and one-of-a-kind experiences that your FROSCH Travel Advisors can arrange, there’s no shortage of memories to be made here.
But what about those back home, liking every Instagram story you post and living vicariously through your travels?
We can’t forget about our family and friends, so here’s a few tried and true (as well as new) gift ideas!
What could possibly be more British than a tea set?!
Whether from top end makers like Fortnum & Mason or their more affordable gift shop equivalents, a traditional and authentic tea set could be the perfect gift.
You can even buy individual pieces if a full set seems overkill. Make sure they’re wrapped securely before transporting or shipping them home.
As with our tea set idea, umbrellas can be purchased at top end boutiques or airport duty-free shops.
If you’re looking to channel your inner Kingsman and invest in a quality product, make it a point to visit James Smith & Sons.
Founded in 1830, this shop’s umbrellas and walking sticks are world-renowned for the amazing detail carved into their handles. These impressive statement pieces will run you about £300, but they also offer more affordable, everyday options that will put that sorry excuse for an umbrella that lives under the seat in your car to shame!
Modern day London is synonymous with Platform 9 ¾ at Kings Cross Station, where Harry, Ron and company boarded the Hogwart’s Express each school year.
“It’s not real,” you say?
You’ll be guaranteed to wow any Harry Potter fan back home with a gift from the Platform 9 ¾ Gift Shop at King’s Cross.
From authentic House ties, scarves and Quidditch jumpers to a wand collection featuring the wizarding staple of nearly every major character – you’re sure to find something for anyone loyal to Gryffindor, or day we say, Slytherin!
These “built to scale” die cast Mini Coopers are a pint-sized throwback to the original Mini Cooper made in 1967 and reintroduced to the world in 2000 by German maker, BMW.
A decidedly British vehicle, perfect for navigating traffic on London’s narrow streets, this modern-day “Hot Wheels” could be the beginning of a collecting obsession for a lucky nephew or little brother!
