Already deciding which Christmas market to visit this year? If you are heading across the border, don’t forget to stop off at Gretna Green for your Christmas Market essentials…
Dress for the occasion
What better outfit to wear to a Christmas market than a stunning piece of cashmere, whether you’re opting for a traditional shawl to fully immerse yourself in traditional Christmas markets, or a traditional Scottish tartan cashmere scarf perfect for Edinburgh markets! Don’t forget to buy your accessories as well, including our range of hats and gloves.
Snacks for the road
When travelling anywhere, it is key to have snacks for the road… There is no better treat in the winter than some Scottish fudge. Stop by and stock up on your Scottish fudge, with various Gretna Green brand flavours, including chocolate orange, clotted cream and white chocolate. The perfect snack to enjoy with that baileys hot chocolate… Or if you’re going for a more traditional car journey, don’t forget to pick up your Gretna Green own brand mint selection of travel sweeties.
Make a weekend of it
Whether you are travelling North or South of the Border to explore your Christmas Market, split the journey up either way and enjoy an overnight stay at the Home of Romance, Gretna Green. From just $112.90, enjoy an overnight stay in either our Gretna Hall or Smiths hotel. Enjoy a crisp wintery walk around our beautiful countryside, treat yourself and your loved ones to gifts in our retail attractions and visit our newly opened Gretna Green Experience.
