Our Top 10 Favourite Christmas Gifts
Christmas, by definition, is a time for giving; whether this is with the time you spend with your family or in the beautifully wrapped present you gift to a loved one. We’re always on the hunt for those extra special Christmas gifts – an offering that is unique and personal to that person and really portrays how much you care. It’s not an easy feat so to make it easy, here are some of our favourites for this year!
For those who aren’t familiar, each and every one of our 289 products is inspired by our historical Moray walled garden. We grow the botanicals for our gin, the tomatoes for our chutney and the garlic for our oatcakes. We extract the previous pure, natural essential oils from the herbs and flowers to make our bath and beauty range smell divine. Best of all, all of our products are made in the UK (many just a few miles away) and they are all free of nasty artificial additives, colourings and fragrances.
For gin lovers, this is a very popular choice. From Jo’s Favourite Tipple to ‘Mum’s Gin Hands Off’ Engraved Gordon Castle Gin is the perfect personalised present. Choose up to 10 personalised words and not only will the unique bottle go down a storm, the garden-grown botanicals means it will taste amazing! Plus once the gin has been merrily enjoyed, the bottle becomes a keepsake. Order by 20th December for Christmas delivery. Priced at £44.25.
