Where I’ve Been Christmas Shopping 2020

It’s time for Christmas shopping 2020! Last year I put out both a Scottish Gift Guide and an Edinburgh Gift Guide to let all my local pals know about my favourite local shops. I always think it’s nicer to gift something from a small business: it’s always good to support small businesses and Christmas is a huge revenue boost for them, but it just feels more special as a gift receiver! I love learning about my family and friend’s favourite shops in their hometown and it feels more like they were out doing what they love and thought of me.

With Extinction Rebellion and Greta Thunberg as household names, I think it’s safe to say everyone’s thinking twice about the things they buy this Christmas. No foiling on cards or wrapping paper, so it can be recycled. No sparkles, or glitter, or gift buying just for the sake of gift buying. Even if you don’t like to think about it too much, it still creeps into your head. I still love gift giving, and I’m determined to give the people I love something special this year. I’ve decided that buying local, and buying long-term is the ideal way to shop. So here is my ‘shop local’ Scottish Gift Guide! A list of shops local to Scotland that sell sustainable and/or long-lasting gift worthy products.
