The best thing for

The best thing for

Here’s our round up of some of the things we think are the best in the West for celebrating this Christmas and Hogmanay and chasing the winter blues away.


finding a unique wee gift . . . Janet and John, on the upper floor of De Courcy’s Arcade in Hillhead, Janet and husband John Turner are a ‘department store’ for tens of friends in the arts and crafts world. Just the spot to find the kind of present that makes you say ‘that would be SO perfect for . . . .’


staying healthy this winter . . . the salt rooms at Salaan Hydrotherapy will help you build up your natural defences and relieve the symptoms of colds and flu.


finding the perfect venue . . . whether you want to join in one of their Christmas or Hogmanay events, or arrange a private party where could be more perfect than the House for an Art Lover, Charles Rennie Macintosh’s masterpiece in Bellahouston Park?


smelling divine and feeling fine . . . Ashtins Aromatics for natural, handmade bath and body products and wonderfully scented candles. If the Christmas rush leaves you frazzled and the winter chills bring ills just run a bath and light a candle you’ll be relaxed in no time.


chasing the winter blues away . . . a roaring fire, music and song and someone else doing the cooking for you! What could bring more midwinter cheer than the Fintry Inn?


a hassle free trip to the shops . . . free parking, a quick dash to collect your dry cleaning, prescriptions, a take-away or a bargain. It’s no wonder Broomhill Shopping Centre has such a devoted band of customers.


being inspired . . . Fernie & Florence’s philosophy is that life should be lived surrounded by (and wearing) beautiful things. Their lifestyle boutique in Kilmacolm is full of wonderful things they’ve sourced from all round the world.


joyfulness . . . Monkey Music sessions at Bearden, Lenzie and Gartcosh, bring music, singing and dancing to babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers. They bring joy to kids and parents alike.
