Chic and cosy outfit choices are important over Christmas, so why not treat yourself to a stylish jumper for the big day? As well as this, a gorgeous investment coat is sure to keep you warm during cold winter walks, and a special dress or elegant top ensures you look the part on New Year’s Eve.

Unsure what to get them? You can’t go wrong with a gift set from The Body Shop. The Nourishing Shea Big Gift Box features The Body Shop’s most renowned products in their most famous scents; I always purchase this for my friends and family.
For myself, I adore the body butter trio which includes three 50ml body butters. I’m also tempted by the This Works Sleep Plus Pillow Spray. This Works use natural remedies that help you to get the best night’s sleep.
Finally, a L’Occitane gift set is a great gift for the Aunt or Cousin you’re struggling to buy for. The Verbena Discovery Kit by L’Occitane is perfect for this, featuring three products in their incredible Verbena Scent.

For me, Christmas is all about feeling that extra bit luxurious, and what’s better than the gift of new shoes?! This year I’m buying luxe leather boots from Oliver Sweeney as an investment. Sophia Webster heels for the girls to hit the dancefloor in and some soft sheepskin slippers for my mum– perfect for a cosy night in.

When it comes to this years Christmas gifts – I’m proud to say I understood the assignment. You can always count on Lulu Guinness to not disappoint! With its distinctive Dali-esque lips motif – the brand’s most recognisable signature, I knew this brand had the makings of the perfect gift. The combination of sophisticated silhouettes and witty embellishments are perfect for the trailblazing women in my life.

If you spend a third of your life sleeping, there’s no point in doing it in a pair of pyjamas you don’t love. PJs are my go-to present for both myself as well as my family and friends. Perfect for sleep, snuggling, pyjama parties, at home luxuriating and bedtime rejuvenating, they are a versatile and thoughtful gift guaranteed to delight.
My number one is the best selling Laycuna silk rich satin PJs, back by popular demand in this season’s luxurious rich emerald hue, they are already the envy of all in the office – everybody wants to buy a pair!
Claire, Kitchen & Dining Buyer
I love entertaining friends and family and giving gifts over Christmas. From planning and cooking the food and preparing the drinks to serving the finished product on considered tableware and in beautiful glasses, it truly is the most wonderful time of year.
‘Tis the season to drink out of lovely glassware, as well as giving it as gifts. After all, who doesn’t like a new set of glassware for Christmas! For serving -prosecco cocktails I will be using Riedel’s Set of 4 Prosecco Glasses. They are perfectly shaped to enhance the bubbles, and the stem means your drink won’t get warm when held.
For serving wine, whether its red or white, again, Riedel has me covered. Be it the set of 4 red wine or set of 4 white wine glasses. Riedel glasses are quality because they are produced in a premium Austrian factory, crafted using the finest crystal glass – making consistently exquisite product.
For the gin and tonic lover? Simply serve in this Spiegelau gin and tonic tumbler. Whilst they aren’t crystal, they’re still made in the same factory as Riedel. They boast a full, rounder body to allow the space for your drink to fuse with the flavours.
For a lover of brandy, whisky or rum, I’ll be gifting them the Waterford Crystal Marquis Sparkle High Ball or Old Fashioned Glasses. Waterford is a beautiful British Heritage brand and their glassware comes in lovely gift boxes.
