When it comes to the holiday season, there are two types of people: those that have their Christmas shopping list checked off way in advance, and those that are scrambling ’til the turkey is in the oven. I tend to fall into the latter group, but nonetheless, here are some things that I’ve loved over the years. Each would make a worthy present for someone special (or a treat for yourself).
Perfect Moment Ski Suit
Because ski season is upon us, and chic new skiwear is always a welcomed present. I’m loving the sleek and sporty look of ski suits on the slopes right now.
Jo Malone Limited Edition Pine & Eucalyptus Candle
Because no one can ever have too many candles. This one smells exactly like Christmas, so even if you don’t put up a tree this year, your house will still smell just as fresh and festive.
Anya Hindmarch Personalised Leather Goods
Because a touch of personalisation always makes a gift that much better, and Anya Hindmarch takes it up a notch by embossing everything from keepsake boxes to travel accessories with a message in your own handwriting. This is one of my favourite gifts to both give and receive as it always feels so special.
Goyard Monogrammed Pet Carrier
Because your pet companions deserve something special too. This Goyard carrier is not only stylish but also functional and comfortable for your pet to travel in, and it can be monogrammed with their name on it in a variety of colour combinations.
Because there’s nothing better than a beautiful bookshelf. Juniper books make a great gift for any home as the book spines, when lined up, become a piece of art or imagery. You can also design one-of-a-kind book sets to add to your home library.
Dior Maison Homeware
Because the holidays is all about dining and entertaining. Dior Maison has some of my favourite tableware, glassware and ceramics that are the perfect addition to any holiday table.
Shanghai Tang Lacquered Jewellery & Watch Box
Because we all love a modern take on Chinese aesthetics. Shanghai Tang makes the most beautiful hand painted lacquered boxes inspired by a secret garden.
Gucci Memoire Fragrance
Because when in doubt, you can never go wrong with gifting a luxurious fragrance. This one is unisex, with notes of Roman chamomile and Indian Coral Jasmine.
Venyx Opal Lunoor Necklace
Because it wouldn’t be the holidays without a little sparkle. Venyx creates unique pieces merging retro and futuristic elements, like this white gold crescent moon adorned with diamonds, moonstone, lavender chalcedony and blue lace agate.
Ookonn Round Luggage
Because who says luggage has to be boring? I always get asked about these round suitcases whenever I travel. They are not only super cute, but also incredibly light, sturdy and wheel like a dream. What better way to embark on your next travel adventure!
