Highland Boundary's Scottish gift guide.
Whatever the occasion: birthdays, anniversaries and even Christmas, a hamper will always put a smile on a loved one’s face. If you’re looking to celebrate with something a little different, we’ve created a guide on how to create the perfect Scottish hamper.
Not only will it be full to the brim of wonderful gifts inspired by Scottish heritage and culture. But, by following our guide you’ll also be supporting local independent businesses. We’ve curated the crafts and talents of our friends and fellow artisan businesses who we admire and share our love of all things Scottish.
Let’s get started! Here’s how to create the perfect Scottish hamper.
Highland Boundary | Gift Box Set - Birch & Elderflower and Larch & Honeysuckle
A true Scot’s themed gift hamper isn’t complete without a nip or two! Give your friends and family the taste of the Scottish wilderness with our botanical spirit gift box. Including two 200ml bottles of our most popular flavour combination Birch & Elderflower which is a light floral spirit. As well as a bottle of our newest addition to the range, Larch & Honeysuckle - a sweet, peppery tipple. We also have the Birch & Elderflower and Birch & Sloe Berry gift box if your recipient prefers a liqueur.
Dunkeld Smoked Salmon
Enjoy a taste of the Tay with the fresh offerings of Dunkeld Smoked Salmon’s artisan smokehouse. Dunkeld Smoked Salmon was founded to facilitate the smoking of wild salmon either caught by anglers or netted in the River Tay. With the net buyouts and ban on the sale of rod caught salmon, the business diversified to include premium farmed salmon.
Ronnie has been the head smoker for 30 years now and is a master in his field. He uses only salt, curing for 24 hours before being smoked for another 20 hours over whisky barrel chips. Dunkeld Smoked Salmon produce their classic cold smoked, whisky cured and hot smoked salmon range. Fancy treating your loved one to a home cooked meal from their Scottish hamper?

Each, specially blended with a hint of your favourite essential oil, formulated to protect, rehydrate and illuminate.

Scents of the Wild’s Relax & Unwind Candle
Everyone loves a candle! Scents of the Wild hand make natural and vegan-friendly soy candles here in Perthshire inspired by Scottish botanics and the therapeutic benefits of essential oils.

House of Highland Fudge
Include a sweet treat in your perfect Scottish hamper with House of Highland’s range of unique fudge flavours. Cherry bakewell, gin and elderflower, candyfloss and lemon meringue pie are just a handful of flavours on offer. Based on the Isle of Skye, House of Highland also offer their own Christmas fudge hampers which come lined in the island’s signature tartan. The team are also proud to own the Isle of Skye’s only goat farm where animal care is a top priority. The goat’s milk is then used in the fudge recipes as it has more calcium and less lactose than cow’s milk. What flavour will you try?
