Christmas is a time for sharing and relaxing with your whole family, expressing love through giving and receiving heartfelt gifts.

Sometimes though, it can be difficult to know the right presents to get each and every member of your family.

Many of us have a tendency to over-complicate things when trying to find something special, when in fact, the simplest gifts are often the best.

As such, we’ve put together a list of great Christmas gifts for the whole family and a guide on why you should consider each gift for each person.

Mother:

Mothers are often the people who have given us the most in life and spend much of Christmas toiling away to make sure that everything goes smoothly and everyone is happy. We feel it’s only right that they get something special for Christmas.

One special gift idea to make your mother feel special is a fantastic lambswool serape. The Stewart Royal Modern Tartan Lambswool Serape is a beautifully soft and stylish accessory, in the elegant and classic Stewart Royal Modern tartan.

Made in Scotland from 100% super soft luxurious lambswool from the Lochcarron mills, this serape is an ideal gift for any mother wanting to enjoy the luxurious warmth of lambswool and look stylish whilst doing so.

Father:

Fathers can often be quite difficult to buy Christmas gifts for, they’ve normally bought themselves the things they need throughout the year or they often don’t want anything in particular.

In which case, something classic that belongs in every gentleman's wardrobe would be the ideal way to show your father how much you appreciate him.

The Black Watch Modern Tartan Luxury Cashmere Scarf is cosy and stylish, crafted from luxuriously soft cashmere sourced from the Lochcarron mills in Selkirk.

A classic and traditional tartan, Black Watch Modern is versatile in that it works well with almost every dress code and colour combination.

Sister:

Depending on the age of your sister, the gift you decide to give her could vary greatly. However old (or young) your sister might be, at some stage in her life she’s going to need a good quality purse or wallet to carry her essentials in.

The Ailia Navy Check Travel Wallet is the perfect accessory for this. It is a classy and sophisticated accompaniment to a handbag or tote with a spacious interior that can accommodate plenty of cards, notes and coins.

The wallet also features an internal zipped compartment both for important everyday items and any sentimental keepsakes that she may want to keep safe in there.

Made in Scotland from pure new wool with a leather trim and finished with subtle embossed branding, the Ailia is the perfect gift choice for a stylish and sophisticated woman.

Brother:

It’s often best to get your brother a gift that they can make good use of, that way it will stand the test of time. At some stage in their lives, all men are going to need a good quality and stylish tie.

The Smith Modern Tartan Tie, made from a lightweight Reiver fabric, has just the right amount of sartorial edge to be worn to both formal and informal occasions, making it fantastically versatile as well as being exceptionally stylish.

A tartan tie is a brilliant addition to a gentleman's tie collection and works particularly well for seasonal and festive occasions.

This modern looking tartan works equally well with a suit and formal shirt as it does with chinos and a button down, so your brother will have plenty of opportunities to wear this tie.

Grandfather:

There are a whole number of fantastic gifts to buy for one’s grandfather, however, to avoid getting him the usual whiskies and books that he is likely to receive from a number of other people, it is worth branching out a bit.

Sometimes grandfathers can be overlooked when it comes to clothing and accessories, but that doesn’t mean they don’t appreciate them as much as the rest of us. Every gentleman needs a great hat in their wardrobe, so why not surprise your grandad with a fantastic flat cap?

We recommend the Crail Check Tweed Barnton Flat Cap, made from a lightweight Reiver 10 oz. tartan and tweed fabric. Padded on the inside for additional comfort and warmth, this flat cap is perfect for a chilly day in town or country.

Grandmother:

Your grandmother should be one of the most important people on your Christmas shopping list, so a special present is only fitting.

Something to keep her warm through the cold winter months whilst serving as a suitably stylish alternative to the classic sweater is a great gift idea for your grandmother.

This Classic Women’s Merino Cardigan is stylish and luxurious with a lovely soft feel and comes in several colours. A cardigan is a practical and versatile item of knitwear to compromise between the cold weather outside and the often stifling central heating systems indoors.

Aunt:

It can often be difficult to buy presents for people who aren’t part of our immediate or ‘nuclear’ family, particularly if you’re not especially close with them or don’t seem them very often.

If this is the case for you, then it might make more sense to avoid thinking outside the box and to go down a safer route. Accessories are a great option as they don’t require you to know a person’s size.

The Douglas Grey Tartan Fine Wool Snood is a brilliant gift idea for an aunt as it serves the dual purpose of being both practical and stylish.

Comfortable and relaxed, snoods are an excellent alternative to the more traditional scarf and a perfect way to pleasantly surprise your aunt this Christmas.

Uncle:

Like aunties, uncles can also be somewhat difficult to buy Christmas presents for. The natural temptation is to opt for something that we might normally choose for our fathers or grandfathers. Instead, why not try something different and go down the clothing route.

Knitwear is always a good option when it comes to buying presents, especially around this time of year. Merino is a very soft and fine wool that will keep the wearer warm in cooler climes, but equally will be lightweight and breathable as the temperature begins to rise.

This Classic Men’s Merino Blend Half-Zip is a great layering piece and represents a perfect addition to any wardrobe as it is lightweight and suitable for wearing all year round.

Buying great Christmas gifts for your family members doesn’t always have to be a tedious exercise, it’s often just a case of thinking outside the proverbial box.
