A Glasgow Girl's Guide to the Alternative Christmas Shop: Mumshape

Tweed Hepburn Backpack from Catherine Aitken - £130, Cashmere Gloves from Rosie Sugen - £65, Tunnocks Place mats from Gillian Kyle - £21, Filigree Pendant from La10 - £60

My mumshape is partial to a bit of luxury but is also fond of some more off beat designs so her gift guide is broad range of treats from different Scottish based independent designers.
Catherine Aitken makes the most beautiful tweed bags. When I saw the Hepburn bag I knew it would be perfect for the mum. Other than having a really elegant, understated design - it's luxurious and practical which I just know my mum would be all over. It is also firmly in the camp of things I buy for mum so I can borrow later. Keeping with the whole luxury theme, some cashmere gloves wouldn't go amiss. From new Scottish knitwear designer Rosie Sugen these two tone cashmere gloves are all sorts of fancy. Again they are simple and elegant (which is what we're going for here) plus one of those things you keep FOREVER.
My mum has been all up in Gillian Kyle since she first saw her designs in Eco Chic earlier this year. I've picked up a few goodies for her and the Tunnocks design has always been a favourite of hers. My mum loves having people round for dinner (read a cheese board and some gin - because she is inherently wonderful)  and is always looking for new place mats.
Last but not least is Scottish based jeweller La10. Creating breathtaking contemporary designs their collection of necklaces and pendants is like taking a tour through my mums jewellery cabinet. Sophisticated and clean designs  - the Filigree pendant stood out for me. The slightly smaller design is perfect for every day wear without loosing the detail of the floral design.
 I'm pretty sure I'd be pretty stoked to find any of these bad boys under my tree (in some alternative universe where I am a classy understated dame) but I know these are all PERFECTO for my beloved M.
All of these guys are available online and I'd say if these designs are spot on for your M then do have a shifty around their sites, actually filled with all sorts of gorgeous luxe as treats.
