The Best Scottish Christmas Gifts
Are you still dashing about looking for the perfect Christmas gift? Well if you are, why not make it a sustainable, Scottish gift and I'll have just the thing for you.
I've pulled together some of this year's most popular Scottish Christmas gifts on Made Scotland to help you out.
If you'd like to see lots more, go to www.madescotland.com. I have over 40 brands ranging from charcuterie to handmade jewellery to sustainable knitwear, art, drink, cheese, beauty and more.
When you buy gifts from Made Scotland you’re buying something hand-crafted and unique. Plus, buying from small makers means you’re supporting real people and communities. What could be better?
And there’s still time to order your Christmas gifts from us - but only just. I’ve put their last dates to order in time for Christmas – some are about to shut up shop! So hurry hurry.
Wild Venison Charcuterie from the Highlands is a popular one, with people ordering to host a gathering or as a gift. With bresaola, salami, chorizo and more it’s the ideal Scottish Christmas food. LAST ORDERS MONDAY 18TH DECEMBER!
Smoked salmon from this family-run smokehouse on the Isle of Lewis has been popular, as people stock up on their Christmas salmon. A true cut above the supermarket brands this, and the salmon and Harris gin gift pack is a good one too - oh and the Stornoway black pudding is another big hit. LAST ORDERS FRIDAY 15TH DECEMBER!
Macarons made to an authentic French recipe, beautifully presented in a gift box and in every colour imaginable. These things are the ultimate treat whether with afternoon tea or something more fizzy, they’re the perfect gift. LAST ORDERS SUNDAY 17TH DECEMBER!
These wonderful hand poured candles are made using a pure soy wax and natural essential oils. They burn for hours, come in stylish glass jars and have the most wonderful scent. It's alarming how many expensive candles are full of damaging chemicals which is why I love these candles which use only the purest of ingredients. LAST ORDERS MONDAY 18TH DECEMBER!
Pickles, Hot Sauce and Kimchi are all hot picks, both for gifts and as the pièce de la résistance at your bit-of-everything festive spread. I mean what’s a meal of cold meats, cheese and bread, without a whole range of pickles and sauces, right? LAST ORDERS SUNDAY 17TH DECEMBER
It’s not surprising these have been so popular, with their original designs and muted colours. The Bothy in the Snow card has been a favourite (of mine too!) and the gift wrap and tags too. A welcome break from the same-old clichéd Christmas designs you see in the shops. LAST ORDERS 15TH DECEMBER!
People wouldn’t be joking about socks for Christmas if they received these beautiful cashmere socks from Ava Innes, that’s for sure. They come in men and women in a range of gorgeous colours and there are bed socks too. The packaging is top-notch too so these make a great gift. LAST ORDERS TUESDAY 19TH DECEMBER
Harris Tweed is the ultimate sustainable fabric and as Scottish as the hills. Amy Britton is doing a fantastic job of turning this beautiful fabric into something really versatile and contemporary – the tweed wash bags and glasses cases have been popular. The amazing colours - lichen. heather, barley - are inspired by the Scottish landscape. LAST ORDERS TUESDAY 19TH DECEMBER!
