It may be a tad smaller than Liberty’s of London or Saks in New York, but Art Room 59‘s beautifully styled, festive window display is Dunfermline’s own signal that the Christmas shopping season is well and truly underway. Owner Ruth Walls always has a fantastic range of present ideas at this time of year so it is a great place to start ticking things off your list.

Unique present ideas, you can also be found at The Little Thistle on East Port, The Secret Door on Maygate and A Village Affair in Townhill.  For art and craft gifts, try Fire Station Creative and Maker in Inverkeithing and if you are looking for Dunfermline-specific items, the museum shops in DCLG and the Andrew Carnegie Birthplace Museum  could be a good place to look.  A Woodland Gathering makes gorgeous linen clothes that would be a delight to find under the tree while local author Caroline Copeland’s latest bestseller Christmas in the Glen Again – an enchanting tale for children filled with familiar faces and landmarks – is the perfect present to complete your locally sourced stocking.
