According to one newspaper story, Lego, dolls and something called Disney Doc McStuffins will be much sought after by children this Christmas.
If your nearest and dearest is rather too old for dolls, we suggest today’s Big Deal on a dinner, bed and breakfast stay at the charming No 11 Brunswick Street in Edinburgh.
Just five minutes from Edinburgh Playhouse and ten minutes from Princes Street, it offers elegant accommodation in a very handy location.
With vouchers valid from the 4th of January until the 31st of March 2015, this offer would make a very lavish Christmas gift.
Part of a terrace of Georgian townhouses, No 11 Brunswick Street combines the grandeur of classic Edinburgh architecture with opulent, contemporary facilities.
Option one is for two people to enjoy an overnight stay, Sunday-Thursday, in a double room. As well as a continental or full Scottish breakfast in the morning, the offer includes a three course dinner in the hotel’s delightful brasserie.
Also available Sunday to Thursday, option two is for two people to stay two consecutive nights in a cosy double room.
As well as a continental or full Scottish breakfast in the morning, option two includes a three course dinner in the brasserie on the first or second night of your stay.

The spacious brasserie at No 11 Brunswick Street uses Scotland’s best local ingredients on their appealing menus.
Exact dishes will vary with the seasons but recent main courses have included a seared fillet of sea bass with mussels and creamed leeks and a dish of pan-roasted wild grouse supreme served with potato purée, wilted curly kale and a whisky and game jus.
No 11 Brunswick Street has won plenty of fans on TripAdvisor. Recent reviews have praised the
‘elegant house’ as a ‘wonderful place to stay’ and offering a ‘great dinner’.
