£45 for 3 Course Fine Dining Meal + Glass of Fizz for 2 at The Western Club Restaurant, Glasgow

Despite the name, cowboys, ten gallon hats and six shooters are seldom found at The Western Club Restaurant.

However, you will definitely find gourmet food, elegant surroundings and polished service. Today’s Big Deal gives you the chance to experience it for yourself with a three course fine dining meal and glass of fizz for two.

This Deal would be perfect as a Christmas gift or for a romantic meal with your other half.

Timeless sophistication

The Western Club Restaurant in Royal Exchange Square has been a Glasgow institution since Regency times when Glasgow was the second city of the Empire and many a local merchant or adventurer would pop in for a little refreshment.

These days The Western Club combines its refined heritage with an airy and bright modern ambience.

The restaurant in the Club Dining Room on the first floor offers a sophisticated and welcoming environment for superb fine dining.

Menus at the Western Club combine the finest seasonal Scottish produce with classic French cooking techniques. Maybe that’s why The List Eating and Drinking Guide described it as ‘precise, satisfying food’.

Available Sunday to Friday throughout January 2020, this Big Deal invites you to enjoy a three course meal for two at The Western Club Restaurant. A glass of specially selected Western Club Fizz for each diner is included.

 £35 for a Private Luxury Speedboat Trip for up to 7 People with Loch Lomond Leisure

It’s not easy to squeeze a luxury speedboat, sparkling loch and prancing deer into a gift bag.

Unless, of course, it is a 5pm Big Deal for a 30-minute private cruise on Loch Lomond.

Up to seven people can go on this trip, meaning you could either treat a special someone or the whole family.

Whichever you choose, this is a present that will be remembered for a long time to come.

Luxury Loch Lomond cruise

This scenic speedboat adventure will set off from Luss Pier Sundays to Fridays, taking passengers on a private jaunt across the water.

Led by an experienced skipper, up to seven people will have the speedboat all to themselves. This means that you can either make it a romantic couple’s day or bring along family and friends (children are welcome).

Although the boat will zoom across the water at an exhilarating pace, your skipper will slow it down at sights of interest, giving you a chance to drink in the scenery and take snapshots.

Your thrill ride across the water will take you past some of the loch’s fascinating islands, including Inconnachan.

Get ready to sit back with the wind in your hair while whizzing across a glassy loch, surrounded by the emerald hills and glens of the Trossachs. If you are lucky, you might even spot the odd deer or golden eagle.

Valid from March to the end of September 2020, this Big Deal on a private Loch Lomond cruise would make a Christmas present to remember.

£315pp for a 3 Night Break in 3* Hotel in Reykjavik with Return Flights from Edinburgh

We might grumble about the colder parts of the year but only because we are not very good at doing it right in Scotland.

By contrast, Iceland is an expert when it comes to the winter time. There is a clue in the name…

This unique volcanic island is a compelling destination for memorable breaks.

Today’s Big Deal whisks you off for a three night stay in a magical land of thermal baths, the Northern Lights, geysers, volcanoes and whale-watching tours.

Valid for departures until the 23rd March 2020, this Big Deal would be perfect for an adventurous autumn or winter break.

It would also make a generous and romantic present.

Cool capital

The Big Deal, exclusive to 5pm customers, flies you to Reykjavik, a quirky, stylish and fashion-conscious city surrounded by dramatic volcanic landscapes.

The Big Deal offers return flights with EasyJet from Edinburgh with cabin luggage allowance and three nights room only accommodation, based on two sharing a standard twin room, in the 3 star Arctic Comfort Hotel.

The simple, modern 3 star Arctic Comfort Hotel is situated a short bus ride from the centre of Reykjavik, handy for the island’s largest shopping centre Kringlan and the main park the Laugardalur, with its zoo, hot springs and indoor ice-skating rink.

Romantic winter break to Iceland? This Big Deal is just £315 per person with a low deposit of just £47.

£19 for an Olaplex Treatment + Blow Dry at The Salon 145, Glasgow City Centre

Romeo loves Juliet. Will loves Jada. But what does your hair love?

We’ll let you into a little secret – hair loves Olaplex. In fact, it’s head over heels for it.

What’s more, Olaplex loves hair right back.

And when you bring the two together, what do you get? Bouncier, flouncier, happier locks, of course.

Treat your hair to the ultimate love-in with today’s Big Deal for a restoring Olaplex treatment plus blow dry at The Salon 145 on Bath Street.

Olaplex + hair = true love forever

If you’re not familiar with the wonders of Olaplex, it’s basically a cutting-edge revamp system that permanently rebuilds damaged hair, returning it to its soft and lovely natural state.

In other words, this is so much more than a conditioning treatment.

With today’s Big Deal from The Salon 145, you will also get a choice of a smooth & sleek or bouncy blow dry thrown in as well.

Valid from early January to the 30th of March 2020, this Big Deal from The Salon 145 would make a lovely stocking filler.

The class is suitable for both gin aficionados and novices.

Afterwards, you can impress your friends with your newfound status as ‘supreme guru of juniper juice’. All hail!
