Gift Wrap Guide.ScotClans now offers a gift wrapping service. The price for gift wrapping each item is banded according to weight.
Each item will be individually wrapped and tagged - tags will include the product code and variant (clan/tartan etc) so you can identify the item yourself if you are giving gifts to several people.
At the moment there is no facility to add a message to individual tags and you should contact us if you would like us to do this for you.
We will shortly be adding a feature to add a greeting card to your order. This will be limited to one per order.
Please note that at the moment you can only select one delivery address per order so if you are sending gifts direct to more than one person its better to create one order per delivery address.
