Happy First of December folks!
It’s been a busy old time here at The Square Peg, with lots and lots of deliveries arriving! Christmas has officially landed in the shops and they’re brimming with lots of glitter and gold. We’ve also been unpacking lots of other goodies…
So, if you’re here in search of some Christmas gift inspiration then you’re in luck! We are full of useful ideas for him, her and the kids. We’ve been having fun compiling a helpful little list of some of our favourite and most popular gift ranges – so take a look and hopefully we can provide some suggestions. All of the products featured in our Christmas Gift Guide are available both in the shops and online – while stocks last, of course!
This is our first instalment and we decided to start with the guys – as there’s barely a day goes by that we’re not asked for gift ideas for men. Whether it’s your Dad, Brother or Significant Other – it doesn’t matter how well you know them, the gents always seem to be the trickiest to try to choose for.
So, how about this range: Thistle and Black Pepper from Scottish Fine Soaps?
We know you might think that smelly stuff is a bit of an obvious choice, but trust us, this collection is incredibly popular. Enriched with purifying milk thistle extract, it has a rich and woody amber fragrance with notes of citrus, herbs and sea buckthorn. The products range from a single soap or beard oil to some pretty great gift sets which include a range of products. We bet that any of these would go down a treat. Shop the range here.
Our next suggestion is another classic - how about a nice pair of socks? We’ve got the most incredible range of gent’s socks from popular Scottish accessories brand Powder – they’re a bamboo mix and the designs are fantastic; bright, colourful and fun. Plus, each pair comes with complimentary gift packaging – ready to give. Perfect if you’re just looking for a little something.
If it’s a slightly more significant gift you’re looking for then how about some glasses - we have some really special individual pewter whisky glasses from AE Williams Pewter. The A E Williams family have been making Pewter since 1779- they are the oldest family run Pewtersmiths in the world. Either one or two would make a really thoughtful gift alongside a bottle of his favourite?
Or we also have a lovely little range of tweedy hip flasks – the tweed is a removable sleeve, so they’re perfectly practical too. They come in a sleek black gift box and at only £30.00 each, they're a fantastic present idea that's good value and sure to be appreciated either on its own or with a wee miniature tucked in beside it!
They say good things come in threes, so here's our final refreshment themed offering; this rather lovely wall mounted bottle opener. These are individually hand made from reclaimed oak whisky barrels, meaning that each is truly unique and handmade in Scotland.
Remember that everything that we have online and in store can be gift wrapped free of charge and delivery from the website is free on all orders over £20.00. We can even wrap and send directly to the recipient, so not only do we save you wrapping it up, we can also save you a trip to the post office!
As always, we're here to help, if you have any questions then please contact us and we'll do what we can to assist you. Look out for our next gift guide coming soon and best of luck with the browsing!
