THE FALA HAT KNIT KIT FOR BEGINNERS
THE NORWAY HAT KNIT KIT
This fab knitting kit, the Norway Hat, is perfect for the outdoorsy type in your life! Made in gorgeous lightweight merino it keeps you warm but not too warm. Ideal for the adventurous type and for someone who wants a simple knit but with a bit more of a challenge than the Fala Hat (the yarn and needles are smaller so it takes a bit longer to make). This has proven so popular with so many people because it's such a timeless classic - wear it on the mountain or on the way to work. It's always a winner.
Gullane Glögg - the almighty drinks mixer from East Lothian. Designed to be added to wine, fizz or beer to make it taste even better. There's the winter mix or the summer mix. Take your pick. Either way it's delicious, it's local and it's good at Christmas, New Year, Thursday nights, picnics in the park...you get the idea. Add a bit of festivity to the drinks trolly this Christmas!
SANDRA VICK ESPRESSO CUPS
Sandra Vick is a Scottish artist, based just outside Edinburgh who draws and paints beautiful images of birds and these espresso cups with her sea-cliff bird details are absolutely gorgeous. These are the perfect gift for a coffee or bird (or both!) loving fella in your life. Stylish, modern and British.
THE SPICE WITCH
It's a fact. If you don't like chutneys then there is something wrong with you. The Spice Witch is an East Lothian wizard (witch) when it comes to chutneys. I'll admit it, I have some sort of chutney with nearly every meal, but even if you've not got my level of dedication to the chutney you have to admit they have a non-negotiable presence at Christmas time. Check out these amazing chutneys, relishes and mustards for the food lover in your life.
THE ILI LAPTOP STAND
We all love a bit of tech - whether it's a new phone, a fancy laptop or any variation of accessories and this is the accessory that everyone needs in their life. Created, designed and imagined by a family who live in Edinburgh the Ili Stand is a beautiful piece of sustainable tech engineering. A laptop stand that does it all. If you've got a laptop then you probably need this.
Ever wondered what happens to old whisky barrels once all the whisky has been sent on its journey to your bellies via a bottle? I hadn't until I visited yet another amazing distillery recently (Dalwhinnie - you should go, it's fab and the whisky is pretty tasty too!) and it got me thinking... Well... This is what! Whisky Frames make gorgeously cool frames out of them! These would make a fabulous gift and they've definitely got a touch of the Scotland about them!
So there we go. A collection of superb gifts for the special man in your life. These will all go in my Christmas list for the special woman in your life too as they are all so fab.
If you buy from anyone on this list please know that you'll be supporting small businesses in the UK and I think we need that more than ever now. We'd like to say thank you for your support and wish you a very merry Christmas and winter season. Remember...a gift from a small business is not just for Christmas - we love our customers at any time of the year!!!
All the best
