A last minute gift guide for the awkward customer

If you happen to be anything like me, around mid December you may well find yourself with a rather long list of people to buy Christmas gifts for and not much time left to execute said list.

Well hello…

I have curated two rather excellent gift guides for you right here – a somewhat random collection of bits I either already have and love OR things on my own wishlist.  I featured a wide variety of brands but did my very best to include some local Scottish brands as well as some small independents (and the necessary Amazon Prime finds for the truly last minute Santas among us).

There are just two categories and no rules other than price – first up…
