The 5th of December marks 'Small Business Saturday', so we put together a Christmas wishlist with all items coming from local Scottish businesses.
For the foodie
We were already fans of
's treats when she was selling them exclusively at local markets and we continue being regulars at her cosy Grindley Street café. However we have not made it yet to one of her
- hence the wishlist item. There are several classes scheduled for next year and it would make a perfect Christmas present for any foodie.
While you can book the classes online, it is worth popping in to the café to admire Mademoiselle Rachel's window decorations (and possibly to munch on some scrumptious macarons). This year's theme is 'The Lion, the witch and the wardrobe' to match the
's repertoire across the road.

For the fashionista
One can never have enough scarves. We have recently discovered
's beautifully patterned silk scarves at her
sample sale. She has four limited edition Christmas patterns which you can also buy online. Our favourite one is the Nutcracker, but keen bakers might prefer the Mary Berry silk scarf.
For the tea lover
I am dreaming about a matcha
whisk for Christmas (ok, maybe it's not very Scottish but still on my wishlist). Oh and a tin of
as well, please! Yes, you read it right, it is tea grown in Scotland. All courtesy of
