Supporting the Work of the Charity
The Centre Shop is full of wonderful gift ideas to suit all tastes and budgets and all profits support the work of the New Forest Ninth Centenary Trust, the charitable trust (charity no 279373) that owns and runs the New Forest Centre.
For younger visitors we stock a wide range of pocket money items plus traditional wooden toys and games, quality educational toys and Living Nature forest-themed soft toys.
If you're searching for more unusual gifts take a look at our beautiful costume jewellery, bags, scarves. Bronze sculptures and our English-made pewter ornaments and needlework accessories make decorative and practical gifts.
In our Craft Section we are delighted to now stock framed photographic prints of the New Forest National Park by popular local photographer Catherine Ovenden plus hand-turned wooden bowls, pots and ornamental fruits by local craftsman John Snow.
We stock an exclusive range of Bee Fayre cosmetics and candles and also sell a range of good quality New Forest Centre merchandise - including confectionery, preserves and biscuits, postcards and quality mementos of your visit.
You will find the New Forest Images greetings cards in our Stationery Department as well as an excellent range of seasonal cards. We stock a range of jigsaw puzzles, stationery sets, notebooks and chalk boards.
Our Book Department stocks our own Trust Publications as well as a wide and varied range of local interest titles. You will also find an excellent choice of DVDs about the New Forest's fascinating natural and social history and we stock all four volumes of New Forest Archive Film DVDs. These contain rare footage of historical film from the 1950s and 60s.
