Have a Very Putney Christmas

Don't bother with the West End - everything you need is in Putney

PutneySW15.com has put together a shopping guide which exclusively features presents offered by SW15 businesses. There's no need to traipse into town when gifts for every member of the family can be purchased right here on your doorstep. 

Discerning shoppers will find great value and choice in our local shops without the hassle and fuss of going to the West End. In fact, many local businesses offer home delivery, too, so you can shop from the comfort of your own home, safe in the knowledge that you are 'being green'.

And we've even done some of the hard work for you.  Below is listed some of the very best that's on offer in the local area for the festive season.

We are always happy to give our support to locally owned shops, businesses, artists and artisans. If there is any provider of local gifts that you think we should feature let us know. To add your company please contact editor@putneysw15.com or call 020 8932 8295.

Trees are dotted around Putney, the current thinking is that Blue Spruce is the tree most likely to hold onto its needles all Christmas. They are bushy and have a blue tint to their thick needles.

The more traditional Norway Spruce is now regarded as the cheaper choice and the most likely to shed its fine and spiky needles at the least provocation. (Don't forget you can leave your tree for recycling after Christmas outside your house - awaiting dates from the Council.)
