Free festive gifts for shoppers

Princes Street shoppers

Thousands of pounds worth of free presents are to be handed out in Edinburgh in a council-led drive to attract more shoppers to the centre.

Scotland's Christmas Capital is offering the presents on Saturday, including £1,000 in shopping vouchers and 50 store goody bags.

There will also be free skin products and dining and restaurant vouchers.

Anonymous Edinburgh Sparkles helpers will be handing out the gifts which the council hopes will boost spending.
