Festive Gift Guide: Have a Very Merry Mackenzie ChristmasKatrina Rose Ellis
All is calm, all is bright…. Enjoy the joys of gift giving this year and be inspired by our simple but effective festive gift guide. A thoughtful offering can go a long way – and here at Mackenzie, we guarantee a lifetime.
Our Christmas Elves – Andrew, Kevin, Ed and Simon – busy crafting our bespoke festive goodies in our Edinburgh workshop.
The most wonderful time of the year may not always feel wonderful for some during those last remaining weeks of precious shopping time before the Big Day. And with more of us focused on buying local, sourcing high quality and handmade, the task can feel impossible. Gift giving should be a joyful experience from start to finish, that’s why we’ve compiled our ultimate festive guide, to ensure you too can have a Merry Christmas with Mackenzie.
One for you, one for me:
The Gladstone, The Gladstonette
Our popular British classic is a star choice for that someone special. With so many options of size, colours, personalisations and more, a bespoke Gladstone is a gift to rival Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh.
The Gladstone Leather, crafted from our Italian Soft Hide in Matt Siena, from £945.00
Also known as the Doctor or Travel bag, the Gladstone is roomy and stylish, making it the perfect travelling companion. Our Gladstone Leather bag is handcrafted using the finest Italian hide that gains character over time, giving it a beautiful and distinctive worn charm. Opt for our classic full Leather design, or create something a little brighter with the Canvas & Leather Gladstone in a colour way of your choosing.
The Gladstonette (right) is guaranteed to perfect pair with any of our Mackenzie styles, from £590.00
We also highly recommend our sister design, The Gladstonette. This compact and feminine version of the original bag is the ideal choice for the ultimate coordination – buy for your partner, sibling, parent, or even for yourself, and be sure in your investment of a timeless classic that will work with multiple styles for years to come.
