Personal Shopper: Fun, inexpensive hats and scarves for Darcy's celebratory post-surgery trip to Scotland

Darcy R. wrote, "Hi there! I recently had brain surgery to correct a birth defect called Arnold-Chiari Malformation. It went really well, and so my mother and I are taking a celebratory trip to Scotland this December! I'm writing because I need some suggestions for (relatively cheap) scarves and hats. I love bright colors, so don't worry about limiting the search based on that. Hope you can help a girl out. Much Thanks in Advance, Darcy"

I have this scarf and LOVE it:
It's beautiful, as well as being fair trade, recycled, AND each purchase funds food for hungry children!

I just got back from Scotland. Darcy, while you might want to a buy a hat or two to take with you, please note that cashmere is incredibly cheap, plentiful, and of high quality in Scotland. If you'll be anywhere near Glasgow or Edinburgh, you can get tartan cashmere scarves at 2 for 50 pounds (75 bucks) or less! So be sure to save some room in your suitcase and wallet for that. Enjoy!
