We have organized a trip to Schotland at the end February.
We have most of the activities in place, places to stay, distilleries, golf and the like.
What I like to know, is there anything where you can please a Scotsman with.
We are from the Netherlands and like to bring something for our hosts.
Peter, the first choice is probably not postable on VT, but depending on your host a round of some vintage drink might be in order.
Hi I have a Scots friend and always take a small gift when we visit.However though it senems odd to take a bottle of whisky to him he is pleased at the thought of a gift no matter what.
How about taking something that is traditionally Dutch? Maybe a bottle or a gift that reflects your countries culture?
Just a thought
Jenever? It's not easy to find in the UK. Dutch chocolate, stroop wafel, hagelslag or unusual sweets; salmiak perhaps? A nice Delft tile or vase with a tulip in? Or a tie or scarf with a Delft print? Miffy gifts if they have a child?
Basically something representative of your country, you'll know what better than I.
