For many people, birthdays or special anniversaries have fallen during lockdown - yet while we can’t meet up to have parties, we look at the gifts you can send to show you are thinking of loved ones while helping local businesses.

Coffee - Paddy and Scott’s

Working from home has become the new norm for many of us, but at home or at work many of us still need our coffee to get going in the morning.

With that in mind, Suffolk coffee brand Paddy and Scott’s is now selling a range of ground and whole bean varieties which can be delivered to your home.

Hampers - Suffolk Food Hall

For a slightly larger present, hampers always seem to be a hit.

Suffolk Food Hall is currently taking orders via email or over the phone for its hampers, which can contain a number of different local products and can be customised to your requirements.

Gins and vodka - The Suffolk Distillery, Fishers Gin and the Heart of Suffolk Distillery

For many people, one of the first things they are looking forward to when life returns to some sort of normal is going down the pub - although that may be some time away.

While we remain in lockdown, Suffolk’s own distillers have a number of different options on offer that can be delivered to your door.

Aldeburgh distillers Fishers use local herbs and botanicals to capture the Suffolk seaside.

Undertones of strawberry, orange and cranberries are among the options available in the gins offered by the Heart of Suffolk Distillery.

Condiments - Stokes Sauces

Books - Aldeburgh Bookshop and the Woodbridge Emporium

With many of us having more time on our hands, getting out a good book seems like a sensible idea.
