MerseyMade is Inviting Last Minute Christmas Shoppers to Enjoy a Relaxing Lunch at Scribble while a Gifting Concierge Finds the Perfect Presents for Loved Ones.
MerseyMade is taking the stress out of Christmas shopping by introducing a gifting concierge who will come up with thoughtful presents for everyone on your list, while you sit back and relax over an indulgent breakfast or a lazy lunch at its new Scribble café.
Providing a personal service for shoppers who are struggling for inspiration, as well as those who are simply too busy to spend hours scouring the shops, MerseyMade’s gifting concierge promises to find something special to delight your nearest and dearest this Christmas.
The free gifting concierge service, available to anyone dining at Scribble, begins with guests answering a few simple questions about each recipient and setting a maximum spend, which can be as little as £10. A dedicated ‘little helper’ will then search the creations of more than 100 local makers and artists, which fill the shelves at MerseyMade, to find presents guaranteed to impress family and friends.
MerseyMade has gifts to suit even the most difficult to buy for person, from the youngest to the oldest, with a treasure trove of locally made delights on offer including jewellery, scarves, make-up bags, homeware, candles, organic skincare, chocolates, biscuits, chutneys, gins and craft beers.
There is also an impressive collection of cards and original art available, produced by some of the region’s finest talent, as well as incredible prints, inspired by everything from Crosby Beach and The Three Graces to Stranger Things and Absolutely Fabulous.
A truly hassle-free Christmas shopping experience, MerseyMade’s gifting concierge promises to have presents all wrapped and ready to put under the tree by the time guests have finished their ‘Scribble Christmas Dinner Sandwich’ or ‘Brie and Cranberry Panini’, which are among the seasonal specials on the menu.
Those who prefer to enjoy a classic breakfast or lunch, while MerseyMade’s gifting helpers get to work, can opt for ‘Eggs Benny on Sourdough’, prepared with honey and mustard shredded ham hock, poached eggs, hollandaise sauce and poached pears; or ‘Avocado and Lime Toast’, served with feta, caramelised onion and red wine marmalade. Alternatively, the ‘Scribble Breakfast’ makes a comforting treat with herb sausage, streaky bacon, confit tomato, homemade hash brown, mushrooms, beans, fried egg and toast. There are plenty of vegan, vegetarian and gluten or dairy free options too.
An inviting escape from the hustle and bustle outside, Scribble also offers a tempting selection of cakes, bakes and pastries, which can be enjoyed with locally roasted speciality coffees, fruit teas, indulgent Belgian hot chocolates or something a little stronger such as local craft gins or real ales.
Speaking on introducing a gifting concierge to MerseyMade, Founder Vicky Gawith, said:
“While we love nothing more than Christmas shopping at MerseyMade, we understand that not everyone shares our passion for choosing gifts. Scouring the shops or searching online for the perfect presents can often be a daunting experience, which is why we’re making it easy for people to treat their loved ones to thoughtful gifts without any of the stress associated with the last-minute Christmas rush.
“Whether you’re shopping for that certain someone special, your teenage niece or nephew or the grandparents, our team have a real talent for coming up with ideas to impress even the trickiest people on your Christmas list. Best of all, shopping at MerseyMade means you’re supporting local independent businesses, so why not let us do your Christmas shopping for you? Relax and enjoy a bite to eat or a glass of mulled wine at our wonderful new Scribble café and we’ll take care of the rest.”
MerseyMade also offers a wide range of gift hampers to suit all ages and interests from foodies and music lovers to film buffs and football fans with bespoke options available too. Those who prefer to choose their own presents will appreciate a MerseyMade gift card, which can be used anywhere in the shop including the Scribble café. Gift cards can also be spent on bespoke commissions from the local artists who are based in the studios at MerseyMade or any of the wine tastings and crafty workshops, which are regularly held at the creative hub.
MerseyMade is located at the historic Chancery Building on Paradise Street and there is a pop-up shop at Peter’s Lane in Liverpool ONE, which is open until 31st January. Find out more at merseymade.uk.
