It's complicated, isn't it, knowing what to take home to remember your vacation? We have just got back from our little trip to the Alps, and since the shops are full of stuffed marmots, deliciously ripe cheeses and cowbells, it's a wonder we weren't stopped at customs for loud (still remarkably sweet) sins against Swiss people. We ended up buying a couple of postcards. But I thought: what would be the perfect memory of Scotland?
Whether you wear it for style or a coat, the tartan scarf will add special meaning to any outfit you want to wear. It represents Scottish pride and is a great accessory for both men and women. These gorgeous tartan scarves come in a variety of options including wool, silk, and cashmere.
They are often used as baby scarves. They are smooth and serve as a great highlight for your jumpsuit. Their length allows them to be wrapped in a number of different ways. This is an ideal gift for someone special or for yourself that look you more style.
There are other options, however, and what could be more unique than something you created yourself? One of the most famous aspects of Scottish culture is the arts and crafts scene.
Knowledge of our craftsmen is becoming more and more accessible, regardless of whether they are jewellers, joiners or weavers. It brings you closer to us, the Scots, our country and our culture. And it gives back a little to the local communities you've travelled through.
Bringing an authentic piece of Orcadian silver or eating porridge with a spoon carved by a local carpenter when you get home will be a daily reminder of your wonderful trip to Scotland.
And trust me, only after you've moved your foot on a loom for a minute do you really value time, effort, love and sweat. - Included in every hand-spun Harris Tweed sample available in stores.
A key ring may seem like an insignificant object to some, but to many others, they are also souvenirs of sentimental value often received as Scotland souvenirs from trips to distant places or as gifts at memorable moments.
In fact, we often don't know how often we use a keychain in our daily life. We all are using keys, whether it will be a house key or a car key, and a keyring not only makes them look more appealing to the eye, it also makes our keys stand out so they're easy to find.
The Scotland Magnets are most popular souvenirs and one of the most used elements for advertising and brand awareness.
Scotland magnets are extremely useful for sticking important notes and to-do lists on your fridge door, and also they can be attached to any other metal surface in your home or office. Many people do this with keepsake magnets that act as nice mementoes of their travels and adventures.
Some fridge magnets are also decorative and practical and can come in all sorts of designs, such as magnetic bottle openers, notepads, thermometers and much more.
The epitome of Scottish culture, this knee-length pleated skirt dates back to the 16th century. It is traditionally worn by Gaelic men and boys in the Scottish highlands.
Worn with dignity and respect, the kilt is a symbol of patriotism and honor for a Scot. If you are planning to buy one of these for yourself or someone else as a carryover from your trip to Scotland, make sure you have enough space in your luggage as it can take up a lot of space in a suitcase.
These are some of the souvenirs that you can purchase for the remembrance of Scotland from our Souvenir Shop. For more Scotland related gifts and collectables check out our latest collections.
