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.
We stock the first four volumes of New Forest Archive Film DVDs. These contain rare footage of historical film from the 1950s and 60s.
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.
You will find the New Forest Collection greetings cards in our Stationery Department as well as an excellent range of seasonal cards for Easter and Mother's Day. Our wide range of Gibson jigsaw puzzles, stationery sets, journals and address books are second to none and we also have superb pictures, prints and photographs by local artists.
If you are searching for more unusual gifts take a look at our beautiful silver designer jewellery, straw bags, scarves, ties, socks, bronze sculptures and our English-made pewter ornaments, needlework accessories and paperweights - they make pretty and practical gifts for all the family.
For outdoor types we have a wide choice of English-made walking sticks and for younger visitors we stock gemchip jewellery plus traditional wooden toys and games, quality educational toys, jigsaw puzzles and Forest-themed soft toys.
The Gift Shop also sells a range of good quality New Forest Centre merchandise - including confectionery and pocket-money priced items, postcards and quality mementos of your visit.
