With enough homeware to fill your suitcase and then some, why not head to Stockbridge natural skincare brand The Method for locally produced creams and concoctions. And, if gifting for the eco-conscious, make for nearby Treen and its quietly luxurious range of vegan garments and accessories.

Finally, nothing beats an edible gift, and Morningside chocolatier Edwyn and Irwyn’s signature chocolate frogs and dragon tails make for luxe stocking fillers for all, along with the biscuits from Mary Contini’s legendary deli Valvona & Crolla. High time to slink back to The Balmoral’s Scotch bar for a Macallan, we think? Slainté!
