Bonfire Night is an eagerly awaited British tradition celebrated with fireworks, a bonfire and maybe a toffee apple or two.

You may be heading to a family party, a local bonfire event or be stopping in for the night to look after your beloved pet but no matter how you intend to spend the evening, make sure that you are wrapped up in style!

Keep on reading to find out our top Frenchgate picks that will help get you ready for Bonfire Night – you may even find a sweet treat in there, after all, it’s not Bonfire Night in Yorkshire without a huge slab of parkin!


If you are heading to a muddy event, the Dunlop Wellingtons from Deichmann are thick and sturdy which will keep your feet warm and protected or if you want to invest in something more expensive, the Hunter Original Tall Wellington Boots from Next will look iconic all year round.

Winter is all about styling those layers and Topman have a great selection of knitwear in store. The Burgundy Marl Roll Neck Knitted Jumper will keep you cosy and add a pop of colour to your outfit whilst still looking autumnal.

No Bonfire Night outfit is complete without a pair of gloves from the Vault Menswear, the Superdry Orange Label Gloves are perfect for keeping your hands warm but you may have to tuck them away when its time to enjoy some delicious traditional bonfire food.


If you love autumn colours, then the Orange Check RI Knitted Scarf from River Island is perfect for you and will brighten up your look on Bonfire Night. You could then tone it down with a more neutral hat in black, grey or white like the Black Faux Fur Pom Pom Beanie Hat or if you want to stand out, the Debenham’s Faith – Pink Faux Fur Pom Pom Beanie Hat might be for you.

If you want a pair of shoes that will see you through the winter then head to Schuh to invest in a pair of timeless classic Dr Martens that will never go out of style. The Black Pascal 8 Eye Boot Boots will complete any outfit and look super stylish on Bonfire Night.

If you are stopping home on the 5th November then the Purple Velvet Socks In A Box from Dorothy Perkins will keep your feet nice and cosy - after all who doesn’t love a pair of fluffy socks!


Smiggle is renowned for its fun, vibrant colours and is a brand favourite amongst children so why don’t you treat your children to some funky new Imagine Unicorn Earmuffs to keep their ears toasty on Bonfire Night.

If you want something the kids can wear over and over again but will also keep them warm under their winter coat, then head to JD Sports to see their great range of hoodies for boys and girls. The boys Under Armour Poly Fleece ½ Zip Hoodie is stylish and will match any outfit or the Nike Girls’ Core Logo Hoodie is casual yet super comfortable – both great for watching the fireworks.

Bonfire Night is all about the winter hat which H&M has plenty of. For young children check out the Paw Patrol themed Double-Layered Hats or the dinosaur themed Double-Layered Hats, both come in sets of two. Alternatively, girls may love the Angels by Accessorize Pink Unicorn Rainbow Mane Scarf from Next with its sparkly threads and magical feel.


If you don’t fancy heading to a busy event this year, then enjoy the fireworks from your garden and roast some marshmallows on your very own mini bonfire. The Sainsbury’s Marshmallows are a tasty mix of vanilla and raspberry – ideal for toasting. Or if you are vegetarian, the Freedom Mallows from Sainsbury’s are just as tasty!

If you are heading to someone else’s house to enjoy the evening, then you can’t turn up empty handed but luckily Thorntons have got you covered with their delicious chocolates. The Seasonal Selection offers a variety of sweet treats including; Strawberry Dream, Almond Praline and Toffee Baton.

If you prefer to cook your own food for Bonfire Night, then why don’t you invest in a new cookbook from WHSmith which you can use all winter long. You could get the kids involved and whip up some delicious creations with the Annabel Karmel Family Cookbook Winter and Christmas which includes recipes for Bonfire Night fun.
