We've shared our top five festive happenings in Edinburgh and now it's Dundee's turn. Since the light switch on last week the city has being feeling rather Christmassy. Twinkly lights, freezing temperatures and cheesy Christmas tunes all add to the atmosphere and it's safe to say we're getting in the swing of it. It's definitely time to get started on the present shopping and luckily Dundee has plenty of shop small opportunities coming up. Take a look at our top five:

Meet your Winter Makers 
Neo Design | 25 November - 2 December
An exhibition and selling event packed with lovely items made by Dundee designers. From woodwork and glass to jewellery and ceramics, there's set to be a whole range of choice. What's more some of the designers will be on hand to demonstrate their working methods and there are a bunch of workshops so we can get hands on!

Tea Green 4 Week Pop Up Boutique
The Old Flour Mill | 26 November - 24 December
The last Tea Green Concept Atelier was filled with some of our favourite designers, so we're very excited that they're coming back for Christmas. It certainly is an unmissable line up with plenty of opportunity for gift buying, even if we're sure to want to keep it all for ourselves!

Christmas Night Market
Duke's Corner | 6 December
Food and drink always make for great gifts in our books and this market has an excellent mix of exciting local makers that provide just that. Gin, cake, wine and more deliciousness, plus a bit of jewellery and craft thrown in for good measure. We do enjoy a market where we can sample some of the wares and have a drink as we browse.

Wasps Studios Christmas Fair
Meadow Mill | 11 December
With studios full of amazing artists and designers, Wasps always put on a great spread when it comes to their markets, fairs and open studios. Last year's Christmas market was a good 'un so we know this time around will be just as good, if not better. With mulled wine and mince pies on the menu expect a whole bunch of festive cheer!
 
PopDundee Christmas Market
The Circle | 11 December
Money can be a little tight around this time of year and gift buying on a budget can be tricky. Do not fear, PopDundee are coming to the rescue with a £10 art and craft market. Teaming up with The Circle ( a new community facility) they're bringing together 50 artists and everything they're selling will be £10 or under! Such a great concept and perfect for ticking off that secret Santa gift.

Bonus event: Thrift-mas at The Circle | 1 December
We couldn't help but mention this additional event at The Circle because it features the fabulous Christina Miller, aka The Daydreamer. She'll be on hand to help sort out your Xmas wardrobe, styling up  basics to give them a little bit more pizzazz. Plus cocktails and canapes are always a winner!

Now there's no excuse not to make a start on your Xmas shopping! Remember - shop small, support independents and be thoughtful. That's what we're going to be focusing on for this year's festivities! That and eating all the mince pies.
