Christmas Gift Guide

Do you have some presents to get for people that are hard to buy for? Are you trying to buy more ethically and support local and independent businesses? Then we can help! Here is our guide to creative and supportive gift giving.





Arienas Collective soap making

For the spa lover

Buy them the gift of a soap making and skin care day with The Scottish Soapworks. They will learn how to make their own soaps, lip balm and hand and body cream, choosing their own scents and enjoying a relaxing day. All served up with lunch and a glass of fizz.

Portrait photography

For the selfie taker

Do you know someone who never misses a chance to take a photo? Then why not treat them to our portrait photography workshop with Jannica Honey. Focusing on how to capture the true essence of the person, on this half-day workshop they will learn what makes a genuine portrait and will never look at photography in the same way!
