Christmas Gift Guide 2022
For anyone with an Antarctic enthusiast or Frozen Planet 2 fan in their life, look no further than our online shop for some wonderful Christmas gifting ideas this year. Best of all, the money raised from each sale helps fund our conservation work across our six heritage sites in Antarctica.
BEST WILDLIFE GIFT FOR ADULTS & CHILDREN: ADOPT A PENGUIN
Our Adopt a Penguin scheme helps protect over 1,000 gentoo penguins that have made their home at Port Lockroy on the Antarctic Peninsula. This gift includes an adoption certificate, fact booklet and welcome pack, gentoo cuddly toy, gentoo updates from Port Lockroy and a gentoo postcard sent from Antarctica.
BEST CHARITABLE GIFT: GENTOO PENGUIN DECORATION
Support not just one, but two charities with this beautifully handmade gentoo penguin tree decoration created in collaboration with Fine Cell Work. Fine Cell Work is a charity and social enterprise that train prisoners in high quality needlework, providing them with the skills needed to earn money and live crime-free in the future. Each penguin is hand stitched and carries the name of the person who made it.
BEST LUXURY GIFT: ANTARCTIC TARTAN BLANKET
This beautiful 100% pure lambswool blanket is wonderful to snuggle under in winter, or picnic on in summertime. The blanket also comes with a very special story - the Antarctic Tartan design is exclusive to UKAHT by Lochcarron of Scotland. Each colourway was chosen to reflect a different aspect of Antarctica from the white ice to the summer midnight sun.
BEST FOR HERITAGE FANS: UK ANTARCTIC HERITAGE TRUST 2023 CALENDAR
New for Christmas 2022, the UK Antarctic Heritage Trust 2023 Calendar takes a look at nostalgic mid-century life in Antarctica. The spectacular black and white photography of the Trust’s six Antarctic heritage sites chart humanity’s quest to discover the unknown.
THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING: GIFT MEMBERSHIPS
If you have someone in your life who is fascinated by Antarctica, giving them the gift of membership to the UK Antarctic Heritage Trust means that they are helping us carry out critical conservation work in Antarctica, as well as run a UK-wide engagement programme aimed at inspiring people about the history of this majestic wilderness. Benefits include getting the inside track on our latest projects and conservation work, as well as invites to exclusive events.
BEST FOR PENGUIN-LOVING KIDS: SUSTAINABLY & ETHICALLY SOURCED TEE
Children will love this unique t-shirt design based on a hand drawn sketch of gentoo penguins by Sir Robert Falcon Scott’s granddaughter Dafila Scott. The designs are sustainably and ethically produced by Stanley Stella and are vegan PETA-approved.
