Christmas2021

Our designers' top choices

Christmas - Wrapping Guide
Group 157

At this time of year, finding the right gift for friends and family will be near the top of most people's lists. Sometimes it can be tricky to find the perfect gift for someone, even those closest to you.

That’s why we’ve created our definitive list of presents for those who love design – from stocking fillers to all-out generous gifts.

 Most of our picks are Scottish based or can be picked up from our friends around Scotland where possible.

Reinventing the classics

STOCKING FILLERS

Sometimes the most thoughtful gifts are the smallest ones. Practical, fun or even tasty, adding in a small treat is a great addition to any occasion. Here’s our take on some classic gifts traditionally found in stockings.

BARE BONES CHOCOLATE

THE CHRISTMAS COLLECTION

Our take on chocolate coins - consider gifting from a local, quality company that focuses on sustainability and great flavours.

JORUM STUDIO

PARADISI

A luxurious take on the classic clementine stocking stuffer. With an unctuous opening of exotic and near-indescribable fruit notes and augmented citrus oils, Paradisi presents a novel freshness and odd familiarity albeit from a fruit that you have never experienced before.

NICOLAS VAHÉ

CARAMELISED ALMONDS WITH SESAME

Simple, tasty and refined. These almonds with sesame seeds from Nicolas Vahé are a refreshing take on the classic and popular assorted nuts that traditionally line stockings.

GIFTS FOR PLANT LOVERS

FOR THE GREEN FINGERED
