Candles that smell like Scotland

Inspired by her travels around Scotland, travel blogger Kay aka The Chaotic Scot has launched a series of scented candles that smell just like Scotland.

There are four scents inspired by the seasons – Springtime in Edinburgh (cherry blossom), Summer in the Outer Hebrides (sea salt + coconut), Autumn in Perthshire (burns orange) and Winter in the Highlands (whisky + honey) – and a few extra special editions like cranachan and clootie dumpling scented candles.

My top choice though is the festive ‘Coorie In’ orange & cranberry-scented candle for a cosy night in.

The candles are 100% natural soy wax and hand-poured in the Outer Hebrides by Sandwick Bay Candles. Shop here.

A Scotland JigsawPuzzle 

One positive thing to come out of the pandemic lockdowns is that jigsaw puzzles have had a massive comeback. I couldn’t write a Scotland gift guide without at least one jigsaw on it!

The Jigsaw of Scotland comes with a picture atlas explaining some of Scotland’s most iconic landmarks, attractions and wildlife.

Shop Amazon US / Shop Amazon UK; also available in Waterstones.

Scottish Silk Scarfs

Aberdeen-based textile designer Mimi Hammill has launched a new collection called “Memory Square”. 

It consists of three beautiful silk scarves, each celebrating an iconic Aberdeen landmark: Aberdeen Art Gallery and Museum, Duthie Park and the Bon Accord Baths. 

The luxury silk scarfs are designed in Aberdeen, printed and hemmed in England. Shop here.

Artisan Soaps by Made in the Glen

Decor and Art from Scotland

Apart from my own photo prints which are available framed and unframed, or as wall art on canvas, wood and metal, why not look into giving some Scottish artworks?

My favourite place to buy Scottish home decor is Etsy. You won’t believe how many Scottish artists sell their beautiful designs there!

Here are some of my favourites:

  • Home Decor from East End Press

Glasgow-based artist Ellie from East End Press screen prints her beautiful nature-inspired designs onto any material she can get her hands on: pillowcases, throws, tablecloths, wall decoration, mugs, posters, coin purses – you name it! I love her art prints, but also the Christmas baubles and other home decor ideas.

Scottish Jewellery

Jewellery is a classic Christmas present for a special person in your life, and you will find many jewellery makers in Scotland! Here are some of my favourites:

  • In the Heather

In the Heather uses real Scottish flowers, foraged all over the country, to create beautiful and elegant resin jewellery. I have a pair of earrings containing Scottish moss (discontinued), but my top choice for a Scottish Christmas gift would be jewellery made with foraged heather.

  • Emma Wylie Jewellery

I had the pleasure of meeting Emma Wylie during the snorkelling artist residency at the Argyll Hope Spot. She’s an Edinburgh-based jewellery designer who draws a lot of inspiration from the sea. I particularly love her rings that are inspired by colonies of barnacles.

  • Red Houss Shetland

Mike Finnie from Red Houss Shetland is a Shetland-based architect, painter and jewellery maker. When I visited Shetland I did a jewellery workshop with him and fell in love with his designs which he makes from silver, pottery and sea glass from local beaches and Fair Isle designs! Shop here.

Every contribution makes sure that these wild mountain landscapes will be protected for the future. Your gift includes an adoption certificate, an information leaflet about your mountain and a letter of adoption. Shop here.

One of my favourite Glasgow-based design brands, Trakke makes incredibly beautiful, but also functional bags for all kinds of outdoor adventures. Their classic design, the Bannoch Backpack, would look great underneath your Christmas tree. Shop here.

    LOVE these ideas! I just scrolled through a bunch of Outlander items on Etsy after reading your post and some of the coffee mugs made me laugh out loud! One of them said, “Classy, sassy, and a bit sassenachy!” Haha! Thanks for the suggestions!

  4. Victoria says:

    love all of these ideas! I did a semester in Glasgow so I definitely need a print of the city for my wall! That adopt an acre idea is SO COOL – I have to add that to all future Christmas and birthday lists!
