Only a few more weeks! Maybe you have all the gifts organised and wrapped. You might be getting your Christmas tree up, and all of the decorations out of the attic. You might even have begun planning your Christmas menu! But when your pulling out all the decorations, and have the stockings hung with care – Ooft! What about the stocking fillers!? Don’t worry! We have got some great ideas for everyone’s stockings.
Not Long Now! And Christmas will be here before we know it. 4 short weeks to go but still plenty of time to order your highland wear gifts. Kilts, Jackets, Waistcoats, and all the accessories are fabulous gifts at Christmas time. A new sporran or a new pair of ghillie brogues aren’t always the things that men rush out to buy, which make them a great gift for giving. Here are some items that you can get just in time for the special day.
We are now 5 weeks until Christmas, and we are all asking the same question – “What do I buy for a man who has everything?!”. Really though, what do we buy them? Men always go out and buy what they want, so why not treat him to something a bit different.
We are starting our Christmas countdown, and we are just over 6 weeks until the joyous day. Do you have your gifts sorted? If not we will list some great gifts for your loved ones (or even yourself!) over the next few weeks. This week we are all about textiles. Living in the Scottish Borders we cannot deny the history and presence of textiles. It is all around us from the mills that are still standing the test of time, to the Heriot Watt – School of Textiles right in Galashiels. Regardless of your budget, we have the right textile gifts for you!
Last month the Scotland’s Trade Fair has been in Glasgow at the SECC. This is a fantastic opportunity for us to see what’s new in the world of highland wear and gifts. It is also a great chance for us to bring some new products in the shop, and to Galashiels, just in time for Christmas. Here is a sneak peek of some new products that will be coming soon to Tartan Plus Tweed. And don’t forget to check our facebook page for up to date posts of all our new products.
This month the focus in our shop has been on pewter. We love pewter because it’s classic and there are so many different products out there made from pewter. From quaichs to spoons we have a wide array of pewter products in our high street shop. Pewter is a malleable metal alloy, mainly composed of tin, copper, and antimony. We love it in our shop because it’s great to engrave on if you wish to do so. Many of our quaichs, hip flasks, and other pewter items are bought as gifts, so, I’d like to share with you the top 5 gifts made from pewter at Tartan Plus Tweed.
