Gift buying is difficult enough, but when you are low on funds it can be even more challenging. It helps when you know something specific about the recipient, such as hobbies or heritage. On the other hand, it is also good to give a gift that reflects who you are as a gift-giver. Scottish gifts--whether for or from a Scottish person, don't have to be expensive.

Whisky

Scotland is famous for its whisky so give a bottle as a gift. Bottles range in price depending where you live, local taxes and size of bottle. If the larger bottles are too expensive, look for the mini bottles.

Family History

Family trees and names are becoming easier to trace. There are many companies both on and off line that will trace a name or a tree and print out a picturesque certificate that outlines the family history. Family crests and tartans are also available and can be given as gifts. Tartan items can be almost anything--a scarf or mittens, a T-shirt, a bookmark, pillow cases, toys, car accessories or tote bags.
