The Best Spots for Festive Shopping in Hull


With Hull teeming with independent shops and businesses, it’d be rude not to indulge at Christmastime. If you’re searching for the perfect present for the person who has everything, look no further than these unique gift ideas.


Handmade trinkets at Traenerhus

Treat your loved one to something truly special and locally made at Traenerhus. Situated opposite the Museums Quarter on the High Street, this quaint workshop is brimming with incredible items made by Hull-based crafters.

Here you can find distinctive art prints, beautifully made accessories and stunning jewellery. What’s more, they also offer gift cards for their expert-led craft classes. Learn anything from basket weaving to sewing and even lino printing.

You can find Traenerhus at 167 High Street. Keep up to date with their latest workshops and events on their Facebook page.


A new do at Mousey Browns

The vibrant salon that opened its doors earlier this year on Humber Street is currently offering a range of gift cards. Priding themselves on bespoke hairdressing that is tailored to the individual, Mousey Brown’s is the ideal spot for those who are after a brand new look or just a simple trim.

Know someone in need of a pamper? Head down to the retro modern chop shop today.

Discover your new style at 14 Humber Street. Visit the Mousey Brown’s website for more information and opening times.


Something sweet from Cocoa Chocolatier

Head a little further down the newly-renovated Humber Street and you will smell the gorgeous scent of fresh chocolate and pastries.

Specialising in the truly indulgent, Cocoa Chocolatier made its name at Trinity Market, serving wonderfully rich brownies and sweet bites. Check out their mouthwatering festive variety of confectionary, but be sure not to scoff them all before the big day.

Tantalise your taste buds at 7 Humber Street. Alternatively, see their range of chocs on the Cocoa Chocolatier website.


A vintage treasure from Roisin Dubh

Tucked away in one of Hull’s charming Victorian arcades, Roisin Dubh is jam-packed full of shabby chic homeware and vintage-inspired treasures.

Translating into English as Black Rose, the small and delightful boutique is an excellent choice for those who love quirky items. Here you can discover a diverse assortment of kitchenware, nostalgic accessories and boudoir decor.

Pop into Roisin Dubh in Hepworth’s Arcade. You can also buy online.


Fruity goodness from The Tea Shop

We all know a tea addict: that person in the office who always has a brew to hand. Upgrade their stash by gifting them some special blends from The Tea Shop.

Selling over 150 varieties of the brew stuff, the stall has you covered whether you’re after herbal, fruit, green or black loose leaf tea. They also stock a collection of novelty teaware, including some Hull-inspired mugs and teapots.

Sample something new at The Tea Shop in Trinity Market or visit their website to view the full range.
