The gift comes with an explanation of how it all works and the land that comes with the lairdship.

It’s a strategic game, where each player represents a clan in the Scottish Highlands. So even if they’re not in their favorite country, at least they can pretend to be there with this game.

Shirts with funny Scottish sayings or typical Scottish items are perfect Scotland travel gifts because travelers can easily take an extra shirt on a trip. You can check out Etsy to pick a design that works best for the person you are getting this gift for.

Or get this funny one from Not on the High Street. It says: “Whits fur ye’ll no go by ye”.

Translated to understandable English, this saying means something like whatever will be, will be.

The best books about Scotland

Books are great Scottish-themed gifts for people who can’t be in Scotland right now. They can mentally transport themselves to the place they love the most.

Do you need to find Scottish gifts for someone from Scotland who misses home?

Give them a flavor of home with these original Scottish tablets!

And in case you are wondering what Scottish tablets are, it’s a popular traditional Scottish treat or candy that is similar to fudge, but with a slightly crumbly and grainy texture. It is made from sugar, butter, condensed milk, and sometimes flavorings such as vanilla or whisky (I mean they’re Scottish after all).

This cute keychain with the Scottish national flower (a thistle) is a great small and personal gift for someone who loves Scotland!

#25 Harris tweed-inspired gifts

I’ll admit, I had to look up the difference between Harris Tweed and Tartan since to me it’s both a patterned type of fabric.

But Wikipedia taught me that, and please correct me if I’m wrong, Harris Tweed is handwoven tweed cloth by Scottish Islanders, whereas Tartan refers to the patterned cloth that’s typical of Scotland.

Anyway, I just thought that this was worth explaining before we would finish this list of Scottish gifts!

You can find Harris Tweed anything, scarves, gloves, jackets, hats, and bags. I quite liked the coin purse as Scottish gifts for her, but check out Amazon for more inspiration.
