Follow the Melrose Christmas Shopping Trail ...

... for your chance to win!

More than £500 worth of gift vouchers with values from £20 up to the First Prize of £100.


Starting on Monday, 12 November for the six week period until Christmas Eve, doing your shopping in Melrose can be both fun and rewarding.

Present Perfect is joining sixteen other local businesses to host the Trail and provide you with festive inspiration for gifts, flowers and food & drink. Simply pick up an entry form at any of the participating businesses and as you visit each one they will validate it (no purchase necessary). No need to do it all in one day, you have six weeks to complete the Trail.

So enjoy shopping; take a break for coffee and a snack, meet family and friends for lunch or dinner or relax over drinks at the end of the day, all the time completing your entry form. When fully validated, hand it in for your chance to win. The Draw will take place after the Christmas break and winners will be notified by 11 January 2013.

The Melrose businesses participating in the Shopping Trail are: Abbey Fine Wines, Burts Hotel, Cobblers of Melrose, The Crafters, The Fabric Shop, Fountain Flowers, Henderson's, House of Hogarth, The King's Arms Hotel, Lyndoch Antiques, Merlin Music, Monte Cassino Italian Restaurant, Present Perfect, Russells of Melrose, Sarah Thomson, Tracey M, Yeha Noha Too.

First Prize: gift vouchers worth £100
2nd Prize: voucher for a bar supper for two at Burts Hotel worth £50.
Ten Prizes of a £40 gift voucher.
Two Prizes of a £20 gift voucher.
Vouchers can be used in any of the participating businesses. Prize Draw entrants must be over 16 years of age.

Last week a BIG delivery arrived from Shudehill with all sorts of goodies to add to the great selection of gifts that we already have in the shop including several styles of tealight holder, Christmas lanterns, mugs and decorations, jewellery, photo frames and cute doggie door stops! During next week we are also expecting a delivery of stylish homewares from Parlane. All of which will help you add that finishing touch to your gift list or make a well deserved treat for yourself!

This is one of our own Christmas card designs. Titled 'Eildons in Snow', it is a digitally manipulated image from an original photograph and can give your greetings a great local "flavour". Only £4.99 for six cards.

On 22 November, once again we will have a stall at the Gibson Park Christmas Fair, 7 - 9.30p.m. in the Corn Exchange, Melrose. It makes a great shopping evening and helps the playgroup. There will be mulled wine on offer too!

Melrose itself will also have a late night shopping evening on Thursday, 6 December when there will be tasty treats on offer and, hopefully, some music in the Square to add to the festive atmosphere. Present Perfect will be giving 10% OFF all purchases between 5 and 8 p.m. and remember, you can use all these opportunities to get your Trail entry form validated too!

So do follow the Shopping Trail and Make Merry in Melrose! We look forward to seeing you.
