With only two weeks until Christmas Day, don’t forget to visit your local Auchterarder businesses to get some festive cheer.
It’s a great time to visit your local High Street and get to know the local businesses. You may be surprised at the variety right on your doorstep.
Make sure you have your food orders in at the butchers and greengrocers in plenty time. You don’t want to be rushing about at the last minute. If you need extra serving dishes or culinary items why not pop into Urquharts – Oh, and make sure you pick up some extra batteries whilst you are there and maybe a lightbulb or two, just in case.
As for gifts, there is a fantastic selection to choose from in the local shops. With Giftbox, Paperclipz and Grace and Favours offering a wide variety of gifts, you are sure to find something just a little bit different. For the health conscious, don’t miss Jan de Vries with their wide selection and a whole lot of environmentally friendly items.
Don’t forget about our clothing stores with children’s clothing available at the Little Boutique and a wide choice of ladies fashions and gifts from Bear Necessities, R Watson Hogg, Forget Me Not, Whispers and Ruby’s.
With two shoe shops in town you will be spoilt for choice whether you are looking for slippers, socks, scarves, bags or shoes.
The local salons, cafes and many others offer gift vouchers for those looking to gift an experience rather than an item. Great for the person who has everything and wants to do more. Choose from Afternoon tea, beauty treatments and more.
There are even options available for your favourite cyclist at Synergy or for someone who enjoys relaxing with a drop of wine at Ellies Cellar.
You can even purchase gifts online direct from local creatives such as Lasting Moments and Culdees Crafts at the Auchterarder Marketplace website.
So why not support your local High Street and take a wander through Auchterarder this week?
