For The Love of Money! Gift Cards

OK it’s Christmas Eve, we hate to be that guy but if you’re buying Christmas presents today then you’re cutting it a little bit fine. Unfortunately our Gift Cards won’t make it to you in time for the big day but will work well as an extra surprise after the big day or maybe as a gift for those loved ones that you might be meeting a few days after Christmas.



We have over 100 unique gift experiences and packages at different venues throughout Scotland. There’s something there to suit everyone, whether you’ve got a foodie friend or a movie mad mum our gifts that tick all the right boxes. The prices are also really flexible, with prices starting as low as £10!


Monetary Gift Cards

If you’re still stuck on what to get don’t worry we’ve also got cash value gift cards that they can use to choose their own gift. Our selection of monetary gift cards are available from £25 right up to £100 and can be used at some amazing bars, cinemas, restaurants, cookery and drinks masterclasses and hotels across Scotland. You’re basically giving them the gift of picking their own present!



Our monetary gift cards can be used in the following locations:

Afternoon Tea for Two! Great minds think alike

Today we have some wonderful offers to help with your Christmas shopping, it’s kind of what we do! A wise person once said a cup of tea is an excuse to share great thoughts with great minds, something that we could not possible agree more with. So much so that we offer seven separate Afternoon Tea offers on our website at some fantastic venues across Scotland!

Afternoon Tea for Two!



Who doesn’t love a good Afternoon Tea? Hand cut sandwiches, freshly baked scones and a selection of teas, afternoons don’t  get much better than that. Unless you throw in some bubbles of course!


As mentioned the Afternoon Tea experiences we have are on offer are available throughout Scotland from St. Andrews to Edinburgh. The Doll’s House in St. Andrews, specialising in hearty ‘good mood food’, The Doll’s House offers a diverse range of quality offers from weekend brunch to value market menu dining.



Meanwhile in Leith, The Granary serves quality hearty food in a comfy, homely setting looking over the docks. The kitchen serves up food that will warm your cockles and leave a lasting impression on your tastebuds!

This is just two of the great places that you can enjoy Afternoon Tea, check Gift Ideas for everywhere else!


The Food Challenge Is On!

On the second day of Christmas my true love gave to me…a food feast on a plank?

The Man Plank Package at The Three Sisters


Nothing helps build that wonderful bond between friends, than getting together and working as a team to absolutely demolish an entire wooden plank of glorious food!

That’s right our top gift for today is the man plank at The Three Sisters, Edinburgh. Imagine the biggest foodie feast possible served up on a huge wooden plank the size of a table. Don’t let the name put you off, the plank is perfect for all of those friends that love a foodie challenge.



This really is the mother of all food planks and features burgers, nachos, chicken wings, racks of ribs, samosas, pakora and more all topped off with two pint steins of beer for everyone. It’s available for all of those that can handle the feast.



The man plank is available at The Three Sisters, considered one of Edinburgh’s liveliest and most fun venues! This is where you’ll find everything from great food and an amazing drinks selection to live music and HD big screens with all the sports under the sun shown live. They also have a massive outdoor courtyard space, which plays host to some very ‘unique’ Three Sisters entertainment.



Get down to The Three Sisters in December and you’ll get to enjoy Cowgate Christmas, an alternative festive market with hot mulled drinks, tasty sweat treats, gourmet food and lots of live entertainment. The highlight has got to be the Drag Queen Mariah’s performing Christmas classics every Friday and Saturday night.

The Beautiful South! Afternoon Tea at The Waverley Tearoom

One of the great things about all of the amazing experiences we have on offer is where they can be used throughout Scotland, from the capital city to the granite city and everywhere in between! Today we’ve put the spotlight on Glasgow, or to be more precise Glasgow’s Southside.

Afternoon Tea for 2 at The Waverley Tearoom



Considered a cultural hub of the Southside, Shawlands has been through some exciting changes over the past few years. Offering a range of arts and music festivals, street food events and more new bars you can shake a stick at, it has gradually seen a steady of hip new locals move in.


Amongst some of the great bars and restaurants is the Waverley Tearoom, a great place for dining, drinking and generally staying up late! Not only does this place have the largest open air terrace and beer garden this side of the Clyde, it’s also one of the only bars in the area with a 1am licence, making it lively at weekends…and many week nights for that matter!

Afternoon Tea for 2 at The Waverley Tearoom


But it’s not just late nights, as you can imagine with a name like Waverley Tearoom they also do a mean Afternoon Tea. Featuring fresh finger cut sandwiches, homemade scones and a selection of sweet treats! There’s also the option to add on some bubbly if the mood takes you! The perfect gift for locals or those looking to enjoy the full southside experience for themselves.BUY NOW
