The General Store has some great offers for Christmas gifts or simply to make your own festive celebrations really special. Their Christmas wine crates offer something for everyone from a great value Party Box to special Classic Selection, with wines chosen to complement the Christmas Feast. The Christmas Hamper would make a wonderful gift and many of the items are exclusive to this selection and are not even available in store! They will be bringing back MR WHIPPY for one night only – free cheeky monkeys for children!!!  There will also be free prosecco and panettone giveaways that evening and they will also be launching their raffle to win a GIANT CHOCOLATE ROBIN (it weighs 5KG!)

For stocking fillers, Dornoch Christmas cards and unusual toys (e.g. Kaleidoscope, clay modelling dinosaur, train whistle) go to Historylinks Museum. On your way stop at Cocoa Mountain for a hot chocolate while you sample and place your Christmas order- they will be running a 544 promotion on the night – every 5th item is free! Their Signature Collection Gift box is very popular (£26).

The award winning Carnegie Whisky Cellars has a range of gifts to tempt you from a Glencairn whisky glass at £6, to a bottle of Wolfburn Small Batch No. 128 at £67.

While in the Courthouse, call in at Aspen Spa and choose a luxury gift or treatment voucher for the lady in your life.  Their Delilah Xmas crackers contain 2 colour intense lipsticks in nude or red shades, a fantastic gift for £28. Voya have released the popular Christmas spice candle (£25) again this year which sold out last year.

No trip to Dornoch would be complete without a visit to Jail Dornoch, which offers a superb selection of unique Scottish gift ideas, jewellery accessories, luxurious cashmere and quality country wear and its sister shop Country Interiors, which is an Aladdin’s cave of beautiful decorative objects, gifts, soft furnishings and furniture.  There will be a 10% discount on the night and customers will enjoy Prosecco and chocolates while they browse.

A visit to Coast Candle Co. awakens the senses, with a range of hand poured fragrant candles in all shapes and sizes. You will be welcomed with a glass of fizz, sweet treats and a complimentary Christmas wax melt. With luxury in mind head up to Links House at Royal Dornoch for their range of J & L Tweed products (make-up bag £30, men’s wash bag £70) and gift vouchers for a special lunch, afternoon tea or dinner.

In High Street you will find Lily & Roux children’s boutique which is offering a fantastic 20% off everything for the late night event only!! They are fully stocked for the party season, and have added a few wooden toys for the run up to Christmas.  Across the road is The Dornoch Bookshop – a fantastic place to browse at any time of year and great for Christmas presents, cards and book tokens. Finally don’t forget Mitchell’s Chemist which has gifts for all the family including perfume, toiletries, mug & sock pack (£15.95), cushions and designer bags.

Why not treat yourself to a cocktail or hot drink at the Castle Hotel at the end of the evening.
