Historic Environment Scotland has festive shopping wrapped up this year with the Historic Scotland online shop, which showcases a unique collection of gifts and different ranges filled with perfect presents for all the family this Christmas.

This year’s collection includes a number of traditional favourites along with a range of quality knitwear, gifts, textiles and final flourishes for the home and tree. Even man’s best friend is catered for with a stylish Harris Tweed Dog Coat, priced at £26.99.

Whilst an assortment of decorations and ornaments take a lead from the wintery wilderness, including Snowflakes, sparkling ice skates and silver acorn tree hanging decorations. Priced from £1.50 each, these are just some of the items in the range that can be picked up to add the finishing touches to any Christmas tree this festive season.

Historic Environment Scotland’s Head of Retail, Natasha Troitino, said: “We’re excited to be rolling out our online Christmas collection for this year in the build up to the festive season. This year’s range focuses on themes such as Frosty Loch and includes textiles, accessories, decorations, unique gift ideas and much more.

Customers can click their way through our festive collection and search for the perfect present, choosing from ranges and items including limited edition toys, tree ornaments, table decorations and stocking fillers – there’s something for everyone.”

Shoppers can click their way through the different themed categories for special gift ideas including a pair of silver goblets, priced at £80, perfect for toasting the festivities or seeing in the New Year in style from the dining range to a limited edition cuddly bear toy. With only 1,500 made, each exclusive bear named Cobbles, comes labelled with its own number and a fabric presentation bag.

Also included in the seasonal collection are home accessories and furnishings in a traditional Scottish theme, including a tartan fleece-lined throw, costing £28.

Affordable stocking fillers for under ten pounds for the little ones are covered too, with miniature soft toy husky dogs, novelty bagpiping squeaky ducks, tartan Santa’s, decorative elves and much more.

All of these ranges can be viewed and purchased online.
