Rather than the usual “wicker hamper” which gets put away in a cupboard after Xmas, never to be seen again, our goodies come in a high quality Love Edinburgh tote bag designed by local artist Ben Morris. When Ben is not drawing comic strips for Doctor Who he produces a range of illustrations of cityscapes and iconic buildings from Edinburgh, Glasgow and further afield. The totes make great reusable shopping bags or beach bags once the festive season is over!
