#9 Mock Snake Skin Clutch bag £25

As soon as you descend the stairs into the Lilies & Dreams Boutique, you know you have entered somewhere very special. Lilies and Dreams is a veritable Aladdin’s Cave of lovely things that any girl will want in her Christmas stocking.

Handbags, Clutch Bags, Purses and Scarves, nestle with Jewellery and Luggage, all created by designers individually sourced from around the world. The pieces are lovingly displayed on vintage furniture – the quiet calm and eclectic mix offering a treasure trove of ‘must haves’ for those seeking something extra ordinary, never to be found on the high street.

Bringing together the very best designer collections from Scotland, the UK and further afield, each piece is carefully selected for that something special. Elegant, eclectic, quirky and quaint, every item has a story to tell and a promise of great memories, yet to come.

We spoke to the owner, JoJo Hernandez, to see if she could choose a few things from her stock as gift ideas…and here is what she came up with for you! (Is it wrong to want everything?) JoJo said:-“Here are my top tips for things to buy the woman in your life this Christmas…but of course we have more in the shop so come in and see us, or buy from our online store.”
