Done your Christmas shopping yet? Fear not, here’s a list of comprehensive ideas to help you along, with gifts you can buy now from the comfort of your armchair. All have been chosen to have special appeal to the type of people who love attending The Game Fair.

Nouvelle habit oiled skirts

1. For the equestrienne/dog walker/gardener

A waxed cotton, handmade riding or walking skirt from Nouvelle Habit (shown above). An elegant and comfortable alternative to waterproof trousers, these skirts will keep the wearer warm, dry and looking chic. Gift vouchers from £50.

2. For the country girl who loves the classics.

How about a gift voucher from Penelope Chilvers, renowned for fashionable footwear design (shown above), beautifully crafted. A pair of these boots will last and last, and never look off-trend. Gift vouchers from £50.

3.   For the aspiring Young Shot

Whether the Young Shot in question is new to shooting or more experienced, a morning on the Young Shots course at Holland & Holland will go down a treat. £95, including refreshments.

4. For the stalker, shooter and general outdoors type

A pair of boots from Brandecosse. Beautifully crafted from superb materials, they will go that extra mile. POA.

5.  For grandparents who have everything

Why not give grandparents tickets to The Game Fair? They can take the grandchildren along (children under 7 are free) and there’s plenty to see and do. What’s more, if you buy your tickets before 1st January you’ll get a 25% discount. Concessionary tickets £25.50.

6.  For a shivery spaniel

After a long day in the field spaniels can feel the cold. Wrap them up in a coat from Ruff and Tumble and they’ll be dry and warm. The coats come in all sorts of different sizes, including ones that fit labradors and they’re easy to wash. POA.

7. For those who love the good life

Gift those hard to buy people a day in the VIP Enclosure at The Game Fair. They’ll have a ringside seat of the Main Arena, a quiet place to catch up with friends, a private cash bar and the chance to have lunch cooked by celebrity chef, James Martin. Different packages available from £99.

8. For the all-round country lover

A gift voucher from Fur Feather & Fin will allow the recipient to browse through gifts for a country home, food and drink, something for the dogs or something for the field or riverbank.

9. For the hip flask

Foxdenton makes a delicious selection of English fruit gin liqueurs and dry gin. If you haven’t had time to make your own bottles of sloe gin to give as gifts, then a tipple from this company will be well received.

10. For those north of the border

Set in the grounds of historic Scone Palace, the GWCT Scottish Game Fair is a celebration of the Scottish countryside and all it has to offer. If you have relatives in Scotland who love the great outdoors, some tickets to the event could be the perfect gift. Again, if you buy your tickets before 1st January you’ll get a 25% discount.

All of the above will also be exhibiting at The Game Fair at Blenheim Palace in July 2024. Have you got your tickets yet?
