I find that Etsy is a great place to pick up Christmas gifts which are a little different. It’s also a wonderful way to support individuals and independent small businesses and give a custom or handmade present to someone. There’s a fantastic range of Scottish gifts on Etsy to suit all budgets and all types of people. Here’s my pick including prints, jewellery, clothing, home accessories and more:
I love this lino print as it’s such a beauitufl image of a scene which most people who have visited the Scottish Highlands and Islands in the summer will recognise. This lino print is carved and hand-pulled by the artist to create this striking artwork of a ruined cottage in the Hebrides fronted by an inviting meadow of Iris flowers.
The Scottish Highland cow has to be one of the most photographed cows in the country. These shaggy beasts are understandably popular. If you know a Highland coo fan, they’ll love this porcelain mug available in two designs. It’s dishwasher and microwave-safe too.
If you’ve ever been to the Outer Hebrides, you’ll find that this Harris Tweed Herringbone design in teal reminds you of the incredible colours of the sea. This colour goes well with that other very famous product from the Isle of Harris, Harris gin. You can also buy a bottle lamp adaptor to create your own lamp from an empty bottle as a wonderful reminder of walks along the stunning beaches.
Aberfeldy Tablet is a delicious homemade sweet treat with a creamy taste and crumbly texture. It’s a tasty and inexpensive gift so makes a great stocking filler.
£10 for 10 bars
For lovers of beer and Scotland, this beer cap map is the chance to create a piece of art from 28 of their favourite Scottish beer caps. Made from handsome birch plywood or oak and it comes with a hanging hook attached to the rear for easy wall hanging.
This men’s Scottish crew neck jumper is made from 100% natural undyed pure new wool. The two tones of yarn create a block effect across the chest which is also echoed in the ribbed cuffs and hem. Made in Scotland using wool spun at New Lanark World Heritage Site – an 18th Century mill powered by the River Clyde.
Other woollen items also available.
Vanishing Points sells photo prints of wonderful views taken by the Mark Greenwood. Mark says that this is “Perhaps my favourite view… Loch Leven and Kinlochleven from the Mamore estate landrover track way up in the hills.”
Other Scotland landscape photographs available too.
