Spinnaker Favourites

Spinnaker Favourites!

It’s hard to show all of our amazing products, so each month we highlight our current must-have item or items, selected by one of our very own team members!

This month, love is in the air at the Tower! From Valentine’s High Teas to Love is in the Air, an evening sharing platter and Valentine’s themed decorations around the Tower, we’re definitely sharing the love. Throughout our Gift & Souvenir shop, you’ll find lots of local products displayed as part of our ‘Love your City’ theme too! 

So, we’ve put together out top 5 Valentine’s gifts from our Souvenir & Gift shop, made by our lovely local suppliers. Struggling to choose just one? Why not create your own gift set of local products with one of each!

Top 5 Valentine’s Gifts in the Souvenir & Gift shop…

For the Chilli Lovers

Does the love of your life love a bit of hot and spicy? Treat them to Spice Island Chilli sauces, made just over the harbour! You can find most of their product range here at the Tower including Centurion 1744 (Scotch Bonnet & Spiced Rum), Drake’s Gold (Habanero & Pineapple), Ghost Ship (Ghost Pepper sauce) and Hardy’s Kiss (Jalapeno & Lime). 

For the Gin Lovers

Is your special someone obsessed with a classic G&T? Discover Mermaid Gin in our Souvenir and Gift Shop, hand-crafted on the Isle of Wight. It uses ten ethically sourced botanicals, delivering a smooth yet complex blend of fresh organic lemon zest and peppery grains of paradise, with a hint of sea air from locally foraged, fragrant rock samphire. 

For the Garlic Lovers

Do they love Garlic and just can’t hide it? Choose from a selection of garlic gifts from The Garlic Farm in our Gift & Souvenir shop, from unusual Garlic Beer to irresistibly tasty chutneys! (Don’t forget the mints!) 

One of a kind!

Someone special deserves a gift just as unique! Browse through our Sea Glass Jewellery, made by Adele Squibb, a local mosaic artist and oil painter. Every piece is slightly different, using broken glass bottles, jars, windows, ceramics, tableware or even shipwrecks, found on the beach! 

For the Pampering Pro

No matter what your gender, we all love a bit of pampering! Explore Southsea Bathing Hut‘s collection in our Souvenir & Gift shop, with products for him and her!
