Shop local this Christmas! #DiscoverAshbourne has visited every shop in Ashbourne to find the best and brightest festive shop displays. Most are worth a look through the windows but do try and go during opening hours as they are even better to walk around.

Every £ you spend in Ashbourne supports local jobs and local businesses. And in December, every £10+ purchase in selected shops, gets you an entry into the Christmas draw.

1. Fairways

Fairways is without doubt the best Christmas shop in Ashbourne and perhaps even in Derbyshire. Its on the top level of their car park and they have removed most of the normal homewares and given the whole space over to Christmas. We love the mini parked between the Christmas trees and the phone box outside is beautiful. It's worth also taking a peek through the main windows of the garden centre and of course there is also a fabulous cafe.

2. JP Flower & Home

Running Fairways a close second Is JP Flower & Home. Our favourite display is the family of reindeer just inside the front door but there is more to see around every corner with silver-themed Christmas goods artfully displayed amidst JP's stylish homewares. The shop is attached to Prestons Garage on Old Derby Road. It also has a fabulous cafe, with the nicest ladies loos in Ashbourne!

3. Handmde Design

Handmade Design's windows are always lovely and their Christmas displays are no exception. No bling, just subtle and sophisticated, carefully chosen and lovingly made gifts and household decor.

4. David Neill

This is our favourite town centre store for buying christmas bling, with some stock we've not seen anywhere else. The windows are perhaps not quite as good as past years, but still worth a visit.

5. Sticky Fingers

Sticky Fingers is another shop that always has fabulous windows, with a display that changes to match the season. Inside is a cornucopia of tasteful gifts and decorations, and of course, their cafe and pot-painting studio.

6. Sally Montegue

Everyone knows and loves the Morris Minor in the yard, currently kitted out for a skiiing trip. But less well known is the homeware & accessories shop inside, always beautifully laid out and now all Christmassy.
