We have a selection of unique gift items for everyone on your “nice” list. From Scottish Fine Soaps, produced right here in Falkirk, to a selection of handcrafted items from across the UK, there’s a wide choice to suit all tastes. Outlander fans will find the officially licensed range including magnets and the famous “Jamie Fraser” tartan shawl. Recent additions include a selection of gin & gin liqueurs from The Wee Farm Distillery. We are also pleased to be working with Windswept Brewing Company in Lossiemouth. Their Wolf of Glen Moray dark ale, matured in a Glen Moray whisky cask, is an ideal Christmas gift, especially as it makes a perfect pairing with Christmas pudding!
