Edinburgh Fringe Festival: Weather Survival Guide


The Scottish weather is famous for its unpredictability.  It’s been known for there to be rain, sun and snow all in the same day!  We understand that airline luggage restrictions can be strict, and that packing for such temperamental weather can be difficult. Thankfully, Liquorice Tree Gifts have all the accessories you need to survive Edinburgh’s ever-changing weather and enjoy the Festival to the fullest.  Our Edinburgh store is conveniently located just off of the Royal Mile, just a minutes walk from the Edfringe Shop.


We all have our fingers crossed for a glorious summer full of sunshine!  After all, Edinburgh in the sun is an incredibly beautiful place, perfect for exploring and relaxing.  The arrival of the Fringe Festival means that beer gardens will open all around the city centre, so enjoying a refreshing gin and tonic in the sun becomes oh-so-tempting!

For the hot weather, certain accessories are essential.  A quality pair of sunglasses are a summer must-have, and the right pair can make any outfit look instantly put-together and chic.  Whether you’re looking for something neutral or statement, we have a great range of fabulous styles, shapes and colours available in store and online.

Here are a few of our favourite pairs, all of which will link you straight to our website for a simplified shopping experience.  Each pair comes with a branded hard storage case and cleaning cloth included to keep your sunnies safe and polished.  A gift bag is also included, if you’d like to give someone the ultimate summer gift!

Unfortunately, we all need to be prepared for the Edinburgh rain, which can strike at any moment!  Carrying an umbrella at all times is definitely recommended.  Being a shop based in Scotland, we make sure to offer an extensive range of umbrellas to suit all styles and needs.  For those with limited space, a small, collapsible brolly is the perfect choice.  Here are a few of our favourite designs.
