It's coming to that time of the year again, time to do some Christmas shopping! The National Galleries of Scotland have very kindly invited me to be one of their Festive Ambassadors (along with a host of other lovely Instagrammers). I've long been a fan of the Galleries' gift shops so I was extremely excited to partner with them this year. I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favourite pieces from their gift shop. Plus, 100% of profits go toward supporting the National Galleries of Scotland. So, without further ado, here's my Christmas Gift Guide with National Galleries of Scotland!

1. Charming Christmas Cards

  • Price: £6.99
In an age of Facebook messenger and Whatsapp, where we can contact each other instantly, I think there's something lovely about taking time to write out Christmas cards and giving them to loved ones. If you're looking for Christmas cards the National Galleries of Scotland have a charming collection. A few of my personal favourites are the Snow and Hare Allen William Seaby, Edinburgh in Snow William Crozier, Reverend Walker, and Catterline in Winter Joan Eardley!


2. Reine d'Amour's Pigment Jewellery Collection

  • Price: £4-£30
This playful and colourful collection really caught my eye! Reine d'Amour are based in rural East Hertfordshire. They create beautifully crafted pieces inspired by stunning moments in design history. Their latest jewellery collection is designed with artists in mind and created in silver-plated brass with enamel! Click here to see the full collection.

3. The perfect stocking filler... Coco Chocolatier

  • Price: £3.99
Beautiful art and chocolate combined?! I can't think of a better stocking filler than Coco Chocolatier chocolate bars. In fact, this time last year I bought a selection of their chocolate bars for colleagues and as stocking fillers for my friends. Having tried several bars of their chocolate myself, I'm sure you won't be disappointed!


4. Add a little ambiance to your home

  • Price: £8.99
I have a thing for candle holders so when I came across this gorgeous house tea-light holder in the National Galleries of Scotland (on the mound), I couldn't resist! It looks so pretty when it's lit. I would have linked it but I can't seem to find it online.


5. Something festive for your home... Christmas Tree Ornaments

  • Price: £6.99-£11.99
I love Christmas decorations and when I was passing through the National Portrait Gallery's gift shop on my way to their cafe a few weeks ago, I couldn't help but stop and admire their Christmas tree ornaments. I had to stop myself and remind myself that it was barely November. But, I have since returned and picked up a personal favourite of mine, the skating reverend inspired by the painting Reverend Robert Walker skating on Duddingston Loch by Sir Henry Raeburn, which is actually part of the Scottish National Gallery Collection. I would highly recommend browsing through their gorgeous plush velveteen decorations with intricate bead and embroidery work!


6. Something lovely to wrap your presents in... Bagpipe Gift Wrap

  • Price: £1.50
Lastly, once you've bought all your presents for loved ones, I can't think of anything better to wrap them in than this Bagpipe gift wrap designed by Edward Bawden! There's also a gorgeous "Birds and Oranges" gift wrap.
