A good way to lord a great gift over your loved one this holiday? Make your gift recipient an actual Lord. Literally.
Nature preservationists Highland Titles currently offer a “Perfect Christmas Gift” that cheekily but legally includes the right to a Scottish title.
Their offerings, starting at $43, feature:
- A plot of souvenir land in the Highlands of Scotland
- Permission to use the titles Laird, Lord or Lady of Glencoe and/or Lochaber
- A personalized certificate, presentation folder, plot card and more
Plus, you have the right to display and wear the Highland Titles Buckler and Tartan (admittedly, it's not officially a Scottish Coat of Arms).
While it all seems like a bit of a joke — as one customer notes, they’re “already trying to figure out how to build on their 3’ x 3’ piece of land” — the money raised goes toward maintaining two nature/wildlife reserves in the area.
Plus, there are real perks: You can visit your land (via a 4x4) whenever you like, and, if you’re willing to spend more, you’ll get more land (up to 1000 square feet), plus camping access, golf course membership, fishing rights and a lambswool scarf.
Throw in a bottle of Scotch and you might be giving the best themed gift of the year. To learn about Highland Titles, watch the video below.
