If you are familiar with Scotland movies, culture, or history, you’ll have come across this kilt many times; this deeply engrained Scottish history and a beautiful part of it.

A map is one critical gift every visitor to a country needs, be it a tourist or a new resident, so grab a nice map that would help your friend navigate their way; it’ll be better still if you get a map of the specific area or locality they will be staying at, as a plus let them have a guide of different security emergency contacts.
9. The Caledonian Canal – Hardcover
Like I pointed out at the beginning, Scotland has a truckload of history most we often mistake for England’s; nevertheless, this is a book that goes into detail about the famous Telfort and his crazy plan of connecting Loch Ness, Loch Oich, and Loch Lochy and the sea, it’s a history that would interest anyone who gets to read it.
10. History of Scotland – Paperback
Up until now, the books on Scot history I’ve suggested here as gifts didn’t go into much detail about every war, king, event, William Wallace, other notable figures, etc., who have shaped the history of Scotland, this book tries to ensure it covers all of that, this is a more comprehensive history on Scotland, of course not perfect.
11. A Nice Scotland-themed Item
Another exciting gift to get your receiver would be this nice table cloth with memorable terrains and locations across Scotland.
I’ve written countless gift guides on a similar topic, and I often suggest items that my receiver would usually use that feature the location of where they are going too.
The advantage of getting gifts of this nature is you subconsciously memorize some aspects of this map that may be useful in the future.

Something small yet meaningful as this badge is another awesome gift idea.
