Love local this Christmas
With the current protection framework in place in Scotland and many people not able to travel, we are looking at how we can support local Oban businesses to help with the devastating impact of the pandemic.
We've made a list of some of our favourite Oban area businesses that offer holiday gift shopping in person or online. We encourage everyone to shop small this Christmas and help some good folks who have had a tough time of it this year. So if you still have some shopping to do, take a look for some inspiration!
No matter what you are looking for, you'll find something for everyone on your list, and it will be extra special because it's made in Argyll! Browse a fine selection of works from local artist and crafters that is sure to be a hit with anyone on Santa's list.
Their natural skin care products are made with an emphasis on fresh organic, wild harvested ingredients and herbal therapy, in the heart of the Scottish Highlands. Shop in person or online for their heavenly scented products.
Catherine can help you source local meals this holiday season, from pork raised on her own farm to cheeses, meats, fish, seafood, treats and pretties, all from Argyll.
Visit Karen for her fantastic selection of beers, perfect for gift giving, perfect for saving some for yourself! Let her make a gift selection box for you or those on your Christmas list.
Don't forget the chocolate this Christmas! Shop the holiday collection in person or online for a wee treat for those who have been very good this year- or just for yourself.
Last but not least, get your spirits fix this season or give someone the gift of good taste. Their Whisky Fix website offers Scotland's best, whether it's whisky, gin or world class wines. Shop online from the comfort of your sofa this Christmas!
A private day tour or local experience makes for a once in a lifetime Christmas gift. If you have loved ones who will be visiting the Oban area in 2021, get in touch about a bespoke experience that is sure to be the highlight of their holiday. We'll send them an electronic voucher and brochure to announce your gift.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Imagine Alba!
