The perfect Christmas gift guide

Are you looking for an eco-friendly Christmas present that is still going to elicit that wow reaction? We’ve selected five fabulous ideas for gift experiences that are just perfect for friends and family.  

A Royal Christmas

Presented in a Britannia-branded gift wallet, gift vouchers to The Royal Yacht Britannia, available in £5, £10 or £20 denominations, are a wonderful gift this Christmas. Vouchers can be used for admission to tour Britannia’s five decks, in the Royal Deck Tea Room, for delicious fudge in the onboard NAAFI or in Britannia's Gift Shop.

The perfect city escape

New for 2019, give the gift of Fingal, Scotland’s first luxury floating hotel. There are gifts to thrill everyone, from Fingal’s interpretation of a classic Afternoon Tea to a night on board in one of the stunning cabins. Loved ones can experience Art Deco-inspired glamour in The Lighthouse Bar with a delicious evening supper featuring the best of Scotland’s larder, from coast to port. Choose a cabin stay, Afternoon Tea, cocktail gift vouchers or you can even leave the choice up to them with Fingal's monetary gift voucher.

A gift to blow them away

For a very different kind of experience by the sea, this gift will have them heading to the coast for a unique way to blow away those winter cobwebs. Sitting only a few inches off the ground, race along the West Sands Beach of St Andrews in a Land Yacht to experience an adrenalin rush like no other! For those ready to take to the water, Blown Away also offer kayaking, paddle boarding and surfing.

Michelin-starred gifts

Located at Leith’s Shore, and a 10-minute walk from Britannia, The Kitchin offers stunning dishes in keeping with their philosophy: ‘From Nature to Plate’. The restaurant itself has an intimate yet relaxed atmosphere where guests can watch Chef Tom Kitchin and his team creating Michelin-starred dishes through a viewing window.

The Kitchin gift experiences range from a three-course set lunch for £36 per person to the Prestige tasting menu, including matching wine, at £280 per person.

Toast the New Year

Edinburgh offers a wealth of fantastic visitor experiences. For those who enjoy a taste of traditional Scottish whisky, then this could be the perfect gift! At the Scotch Whisky Experience, located at the top of the historic Royal Mile, they’ll become a connoisseur after one of their fun, knowledgeable tours. Choose from silver, gold or platinum levels. Each level includes a whisky barrel ride where they will learn about whisky production followed by a lesson in how to smell the aromas within the whisky itself. The tour ends by tasting a dram with the stunning backdrop of the world’s largest collection of Scotch whisky.
