Christmas is just around the corner, and with only a handful of shopping days left, you might be one of the organised few who has everything bought and prepared. But if you’re more the type that shops desperately on Christmas Eve, and you’re struggling to find some last minute gifts, you’ve come to the right place. We have thousands of handmade items in stock and despatch all orders the same or next working day.
Are you searching for a festive surprise for your sister? Perhaps you’re trying to find the perfect present for your girlfriend? Whoever you’re buying for, you can be sure that you’ll find just the right thing if you choose from our ladies gift guide – from journals to bags, vintage to storage, there’s a little something for everyone this Christmas.
Forget the bubble bath or chocolate, whether you’re buying for your sister, your best friend or your girlfriend, this red leather saddle bag, £52, will almost certainly be well received. Constructed from the same top quality leather as the more traditional Scaramanga satchels, this beautiful handbag will quickly become a wardrobe staple to the lucky recipient. Measuring 30x22cm, and with an adjustable strap, it’s big enough to squeeze in all the daily essentials, and can be worn either over the shoulder, or across the body.
Are you looking for present ideas for an arty lady? Trying to find a gift for a girl whose idea of a treat is spending the afternoon crafting and creating? Then you’ll definitely find the answer amongst our wooden printing blocks, which are all hand carved and arrive in a silky sari presentation bag. Ideal for use with water-based paints such as standard poster paint, these wonderful blocks are priced from £2.50 for a small wooden love heart block, up to £15 for a ten piece set of wooden blocks. Choose from designs such as animals, geometric patterns, flowers and hearts, which can be used for printing everywhere from scrapbooks to wrapping paper, handmade cards to paper bunting. Ideal for ladies who love to make-it-themselves!
If you’re searching for the right gift for a student with style, then why not opt for our large vintage leather saddle bag, £95? Measuring a whopping 38x38cm, this extra spacious bag is the perfect present for any ladies who can’t seem to leave home without preparing for every eventuality – whether they’re carrying University textbooks, a change of clothes, or even the kitchen sink! Made from Hunter buffalo leather, and triple stitched, this beautiful handmade bag is a wonderful alternative to a classic satchel that is guaranteed to withstand all that life has to throw at it.
For a truly beautiful, classic Christmas gift, you can’t go wrong with a journal, diary or sketchbook from Scaramanga. Whether you’re buying for your Mum or your best friend, for someone who loves to draw or a girl who likes to make lists, one of our leather or fabric journals is almost certainly the ideal present. Our newest leather journal, the Meenakashi leather journal, £35, has been handcrafted using traditional book binding skills, and finished with a beautiful floral decoration. For something a little more modern, why not choose one of our fabric journals, such as the tropical travel journal, £7.50, which has the same handmade paper wrapped in a more contemporary cover.
If you’re buying for a lady who likes something a little bit different, and is a fan of all things retro and vintage, why not think outside the box and buy her a vintage trunk or suitcase? The Scaramanga old travel trunk, £70, measures W49xD60xH24cm, and comes complete with inner canvas sections, ideal for either using as a weekend bag, or as a storage solution for accessories – perfect for adding a sweet retro touch to any room in the house. The old blue travel trunk, £175, is a truly unique gift – complete with old travel labels and stickers, this beautiful trunk makes the perfect present for any history buff. Measuring W78xD49xH32cm, it’s ideal to use as a coffee table, or to store books or magazines.
