There are many different approaches to buying gifts for weddings. Some couples organise a list and place it with a specific shop. Other couples may have already have set up home and sometimes they state 'no gifts' or indicate a charity that they would like some money to go to. Sometimes gift tokens or a cheque are welcome. However, lovely gifts - large or just a small token can delight the happy couple and add to the pleasure of their union.
It's fun shopping for gifts in Glasgow's West End - even for the couples who have everything.
Here are some of my favourite shops where you can find a range of gifts including beautiful furniture at Nancy Smillie's, unique art, ceramic dish, lighting or a small token.
Upper Floor, De Courcys Arcade, Cresswell Lane
A haven for Scottish Handmade Crafts
An exciting platform for Scottish handmade crafts from artists and crafters across Scotland. The gallery and shop, located in the heart of Glasgows West End. This brainchild of John and Janet Turner, a husband and wife team who are passionate about promoting Scottish creativity, offers a selection of unique designs if you are after something different. Always something new and a haven for Scottish crafters and artists.
Or you could call on the services of KAS Interior Decorators - how lovely to return from your honeymoon to a newly decorated room, conservatory or landscaped garden.
There are no end of choices and I will be adding to this list.
