According to some reports, novelty Christmas jumpers are back in fashion. We blame Sarah Lund.
If you think that your nearest and dearest would like a Santa sweater for Christmas then go ahead.
However, we think you might be on firmer ground with today’s Big Deal on a luxurious dinner, bed and breakfast break 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 until the 29th of March, this offer would make a very gracious Christmas gift.

No 11 Brunswick Street has won plenty of fans on TripAdvisor. This very enthusiastic review was posted recently. We’ve edited it for length but not meaning:
‘What a breath of fresh air in the heart of Edinburgh. My wife and I recently stayed at No.11 for a couple of days last week and our experience was simply superb. Our Executive Room in the lower ground floor was very Georgian in feel and the decor was very nice indeed. It was a very spacious room too with a stunning bathroom. The bed was very comfortable… The owner of this hotel definitely has their head screwed on the right way as everything is top notch, like the under-floor heating (with easy adjustable wall control), flat screen smart Samsung TV and the best tea I have tasted in a long, long time… The staff were friendly and the full Scottish breakfast was perfect…. Thanks for easily making this our favourite Edinburgh Hotel.’
