Don't panic, but it’s just three weeks until we’re all going to be eating chocolate for breakfast, watching the kids unwrap their presents and having a cheeky glass of bubbles while the dinner is cooking. And that means if you haven’t finished your Christmas shopping yet, it’s time to put your head down and focus. There’s nothing worse than the sweat of not knowing if the post will deliver your gift in time or facing the Christmas Eve crowds on the tube!
To give you a helping hand we’ve pulled together our Christmas gift guide of our top picks, so if you’re feeling a little lost it’s a good place to start. If you’re worried about sizes, we have a 30 days returns policy so you can return the item post Christmas for a refund or exchange.
If you’re not going to see the recipient this season then we can send it directly to them on your behalf. You can write a gift message at check out and we’ll include it on a cute card inside the parcel. Plus it saves you two lots of postage costs.
Maybe you're the organised type and have your presents all wrapped up and waiting under the tree (hats off to you!). Enjoy your relaxed pre-Christmas run up. But, if you know the hubby isn’t the type to have bought his gifts, maybe send him this link with some helpful pointers… after all, it’s always better to get something you really really want.
The ‘play it safe’ gift
Perhaps you’re in a new relationship and it’s an in-law you’ve only met a handful of times, or maybe it’s that distant Auntie you still buy presents for even though you don’t know why as you’ve never met her! If you’re a bit unsure if what they like then you can’t go wrong with a candle. After all, EVERYONE loves candles, especially when they’re a bit special.
Firenze is a gorgeous blend of berries and wild rose with 40 hours burning time. It’s handmade from soy by an elite perfumer in London. But don’t just take our word for it, here’s what one of our reviewers Lydia had to say: “Smells so expensive! I am a candle obsessive and I could smell this candle as the postman handed me the package! It smells incredible, even when unlit, such a beautiful, elegant scent - like a luxury hotel! Already re-purchased.”
The ‘I’m so cold’ gift
We all know this person. They’re the one that wears one hundred layers to the shops, sleeps with an electric blanket and is never seen without a cardi… even in summer! Our vast edit of gorgeous warm hats is the perfect choice in this instance.
For the gift list we’ve picked out the Natures Collection Safina Pearl Hat Grey. The ‘always cold’ friend is likely to be a little bit extra, so the cute addition of pearls is perfect for someone who wants something a bit different.
The ‘wifey’ gift
We’re referring to all wives here… it might be your actual wife, maybe it’s your BFF or work wife! They’ve been there for you during the toughest year for a long time. They’ve listened to your concerns, made you laugh and kept you upbeat. They’re the one who deserves something extra special this year to symbolise how you can’t be without them.
Carter is the boot that every wardrobe needs. It’s so versatile and can be worn with pretty much anything. Without being too high to make it impractical, the heel is the perfect size to give you a sprinkle of confidence, whilst the gold heel trim makes it extra special.
The ‘thanks for tolerating my child’ gift
Teacher gifts have become a big deal in recent years. Now, we’re all for a Christmas card to tell them how much you appreciate them and don’t believe in bribery whatsoever, but if you wanted to include a little token (maybe your bundle of joy has really thrived from their guidance despite the lockdown) then these key rings are super cute. And it has to beat the twenty boxes of chocolate she’s also going to receive!
Sometimes it’s the little things that can help us along our way. These cute key rings are marked with the Louvreuse logo and a little wink. Made with Italian calfskin leather and carabiner in golden leton and comes with a little gift box.
The ‘I love you mum’ gift
Nothing says I love you like a stunning piece of jewelry, especially one with a ‘wow’ stone. So we’ve chosen the Kate Green Labrodite Necklace. Not just a stunning colour, labrodite gemstone shimmers with every move. We love the beautiful hand textured 22kt gold finish. If you're looking for gifts under £50 this is perfect.
The ‘I’ve run out of time’ gift
If you’re reading this on the 24th December then you can still order a gift card. We’ll email you the voucher so you can print it off and present it nicely.
So there you have some of our favourites. There is loads more on the website and in our boutique (Northcote Road, London). And if you're really unsure contact us for help.
