The air is crisp, and the holidays are fast approaching! With Hannukkah kicking off early on Nov. 28 and everyone worried about Christmas shipping, it's the perfect year to get your holiday shopping done early. 

If you (like us) have a love affair with the look of tweed and dream of posh weekends in the Scottish highlands, why not surprise that special someone with J&L Tweed's soft, luxurious tweeds with a twist?

We've got something for everyone on your list, but here are some of our favorite gift items!

For any woman or young lady in your life:
The Blair Cross Body Bag - the perfect gift for women of any age

Our Blair Cross-Body bag is one of our favorite gifts for women of any age. A cross-body bag is a classic because it keeps your hands free and your essentials close, perfect for the working woman, the posh outdoorswoman, and your teen with an eye for fashion. This cunning handbag comes in fan-favorite Black Isle and Portmahomack tweeds and features coordinating laminated lining, an interior iPhone pocket, adjustable hand-crafted leather strap, and magnetic closure to keep items secure.

The classic men’s gift: 


The Norman Dopp Kit

America’s love affair with the dopp kit goes back to World War II, and the unique shape, history, and practicality has made it a top choice for toiletry bags ever since. Made to hang on a hook in even the smallest quarters, the Norman Dopp Kit can fit everything a man-on-the-go needs to be presentable. Our version is always one of our best sellers, because we’ve made the classic even more special by replacing the usual canvas or leather with our “tweeds with a twist,” complete with waterproof lining.


The practical for everyone gift: 

The Emerson Trinket Tray

Everyone needs a little help catching the pocket change, watches, keys, earrings and other end-of-day items pulled from pockets and purses. The Emerson Trinket Tray is a perfect catch-all that looks great on your bureau AND easily unfolds flat to go with you on your travels, so you never have to fear losing your wedding ring or billfold in a hotel room again! The Emerson comes in a wide range of our J&L Tweeds, with metal snaps that take it from a portable 8.5” square to a tray with contrasting lining and leather interior base.

For the “backpacker”:

 The Elizabeth Backpack

Whether they’re off to school, roaming the big city, or on their big European backpacking trip, The Elizabeth Backpack is a great way to make sure they have room for all the essentials -- and will look great when they go! Nearly as roomy as our weekender bags, the Elizabeth backpack is great for a day’s walking or touring anywhere you need to go. The flexible tweed exterior covers a large interior pocket with both a drawstring closure and exterior flap to keep your precious items safe, while the exterior pocket lets you have easy access to the things you most need. Looking for something more compact and versatile? Try the Janie Backpack for a trendy look with less packing power. 

The Stocking Stuffers: 

Stocking Stuffers in J&L Tweed

Go beyond the typical stocking stuffers, and make it extra special with luxurious “tweeds with a twist!” The Jenny Eyeglasses Case and the Morgen Coin Purse are great choices for young and old, and a small Walker Makeup Bag can make your partner or teen feel extra special - especially if you fill it with a giftcard for their favorite makeup!
