'It is an art -- gift-giving. To choose just the present that pleases is a matter which needs thought, and a careful study of the particular tastes of everybody in the gift circle. Some people hate the bother of buying presents, but it's simple enough if you go about it in the right way.'
Advert for James Ramsay, Silversmith. Dundee Courier, 27th November, 1911.
