About Edinburgh City Centre - Gift of Giving ‘Reverse’ Grotto

A ‘reverse’ Santa’s grotto is coming to Edinburgh City Centre that promises to offer little ones the gift of giving.

A twist on the traditional Christmas experience, the Gift of Giving Grotto will be held on George Street, opposite The Dome, within a made-over Lothian bus, complete with twinkly decorations and a very special driver – Santa. He will be waiting inside to meet children and help them buy an affordable stocking filler for their loved ones. There will also be the option for accompanying grown-ups to make a donation to local charity, Mission Christmas by Cash for Kids.

John Lewis and The Body Shop will fill the grotto with gifts each weekend. If you have any allergies, please inform a member of staff on arrival.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Edinburgh City Centre - Gift of Giving ‘Reverse’ Grotto are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
