Where to buy Gifts and Homeware while on Holiday in Suffolk

Though it may seem counterintuitive to be spending time thinking about your home when on holiday, there are so many incredible places to pick up special gifts and homeware in Suffolk that it would be remiss of us not to mention them. What’s more, many guests that we welcome to our Barns and Barges for rent have commented on the superb additions to their home that they’ve collected when out and about. Of course, you won’t struggle to discover boutique homeware and gift stores in Suffolk, but we thought we’d provide a little inspiration all the same.

Stag Interiors in Southwold

Bringing together a phenomenal range of homewares and accessories, Stag Interiors in Southwold stocks everything from classic pieces of kitchenware to seahorse sculptures. All bearing a distinctly modern style, their items are characterised by a sense of playfulness that would be at home in just about any home. Whether you’re looking to bring a flash of fun to your home, or are shopping for someone you know would appreciate it, you’ll be sure to find it at Stag Interiors.   

Snape Maltings 

Situated on the bank of the River Alde – an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty – Snape Maltings is home to a remarkable independent homeware store. Covering everything from dining tables to fire pit accessories, the store provides everything you could possibly need to dress your home in a beautifully rustic fashion. Their collection of bath and body products also makes incredible gifts if you’re planning on bringing something back in the way of a gift. The timber dining tables are a particular favourite of this blogger.

Happiness at Home Store

Perhaps the most aptly named stores on this list of places to go for homeware and gifts in Suffolk, the Happiness at Home Store in Woodbridge is a charming boutique positively brimming with pieces that promise to, well, bring happiness to your home. From thoughtfully handmade gifts to unique accessories, this is certainly the place to head if you’re keen to source some true “one-offs” when in Suffolk.

Risby Barns Antiques Centre

An exciting alternative to the range of modern homeware and gift stores in Suffolk, the Risby Barns Antiques Centre is a veritable emporium of gems. As the name suggests, this destination is made up of an assortment of barns that are quite literally packed to the rafters with vintage homeware and accessories. To discover other treasures, be sure to read our guide to antiques and homeware shops in Suffolk.
