Christmas Shopping Guide: Olney, Buckinghamshire

With our head office located right in the centre of Olney, Buckinghamshire, we’re proud to be a part of the historic town community. Especially at this time of year, when the High Street walls are adorned with Christmas lights and the cafes, pubs, and independent shops become the perfect spot for Christmas shopping in Buckinghamshire.

Olney, Buckinghamshire

At Michael Graham, we value our communities and love to support the local businesses surrounding our towns and villages. So, let’s explore some of our favourite Olney shops for a day of festive shopping…



Exactly as the name describes, this is the perfect spot to “mooch” around and shop for your loved ones. But it will be difficult to leave empty-handed, as before you know it, you’ll have filled all your Christmas stockings with an ideal selection of presents. From Chilly’s Bottles to Jellycat toys, there’s something here for everyone.

Valeria C Boutique

A haven of accessories, Valeria C is the ultimate destination for “gifts for her”, offering a wide selection of jewellery, scarves, bags, and womenswear, along with some of the best bath & body products. With popular brands such as Katie Loxton, Joma Jewellery, and Bomb Cosmetics, you won’t struggle to find thoughtful gifts here.

Find them on Facebook.



Woosters is the place to be when shopping for womenswear. Whether it’s a gift for a loved one or a sparkly Christmas Day outfit for yourself, this independent shop provides high quality clothing and accessories that are perfect for the festive season.

Head to their website.


The Nest at No.9

A hub for all your home and gift needs, The Nest is run by two lifelong friends who have carefully curated a shop full of products from unique brands such as Noble Isle and Ortigia. They offer gifts that span from jewellery to body products, plus everything you could need to fill your home with festivities, including homeware, Christmas decorations, and Christmas candles.

Olney Pancake Parlour

A festive day of shopping isn’t complete without stopping for lunch… And we recommend none other than the Olney Pancake Parlour.

With the longstanding tradition of the famous Olney Pancake Race, the owners of Olney Pancake Parlour felt that the town deserved a pancake destination year-round. The result of their idea is a wonderful café serving breakfast, lunch, great coffee, and (of course) pancakes.

Visit the website.


The streets of Olney are full of some wonderful independent businesses, so you can fully prep for your festivities in the town centre alone. We recommend stopping for a coffee at Out Of Office coffee shop, and if you’re still stocking up for Christmas dinner, pop into Olney Butchers to check out their festive deals.

With characterful streets and an abundance of small town charm, it’s fair to say there’s no shortage of Christmas spirit here.
