Left gift shopping to the last minute like we have? Give the faceless online shopping giants a miss this year and make a beeline for some of our favourite local stores for a hand crafted gift that's one of a kind. At Culture Scouts, we're all about supporting small business. These are some of our favourite stores we frequent on tours, all locally owned and run by people who are passionate about their products.

Not only are these curated shops full to the brim of amazing artisan curiosities, but guaranteed to come with a side of personality from the friendly face that sells it to you. I don't think we can say the same for our digital shopping cart! Happy gift hunting.
