Warmer temperatures are finally setting in, marking the first vestiges of spring (yay!).

After all, spring is a time for new life and new beginnings, and what better way to breathe new life into your home.
So, while planning your spring cleaning checklist, why not throw in a bit of redecorating? We’ve got you covered with this list of brilliant gift shop finds that you can add to your home or gift to your loved ones.
1. Whisky Barrel Stave Wall Clock With Harris Tweed
Upcycled wood from a whisky cask and authentic Harris Tweed — it doesn’t get more Scottish than that.
Made by hand in Scotland using wood from authentic oak whisky barrels, our stave wall clocks make for fantastic focal pieces and conversation starters in your home. The clock face’s gold hands are mounted onto a Harris Tweed backing, creating a piece that adds a rustic touch to any living space.

4. Frosted Glass Scottish Thistle Tea-Light Candle Holder
Made by hand using an upcycled stave from a genuine oak whisky cask, these tea-light candle holders are all about that rustic, cottagecore aesthetic. The stave is sanded to a smooth finish and holds a crescent-shaped piece of frosted glass to diffuse the light from the votive candle.
Each glass tea-light holder comes from a unique piece of wood, so no two will be exactly the same.
