With so many stylish gifts on offer, we’ve given you a Santa’s Helpers helping hand and selected this season’s festive finest.
Anything that keeps you warm but is also fashionable always makes for an ideal Christmas gift and this on-trend oversized striped Masai scarf by the Queen of striped knitwear, Madeline Thompson is a favourite. The all time matching accessories set remains a Christmas gift staple and this marl grey woolly hat, scarf and gloves by Boux Avenue with glittery diamante detailing adds a festive sparkle. For a burst of colour, this fiery orange and purple knit scarf by Missoni will contrast that all black winter wardrobe while for a touch of luxury, a silk designer scarf such as this exquisite arabesque scarf by Givenchy is a timeless classic.
Instead of the usual hair care Christmas set these exclusive label.m gift boxes come with a catwalk-chic twist. Featuring an exclusive Giles Deacon design, Giles’ bold print for label.m has also been applied to this sexy clutch bag. Other fabulous beauty festive treats include this b.you Vision titanium styling iron with titanium mirrored floating plates for non-stick performance as well as a literally life-saving auto shut off mechanism; this limited edition show-stopping eye colour palette by Sue Devitt; for the beauty queen, Benefit’s ‘All Decked Out’ make-up set; the all time celestial haze that is Angels with Halos glowing skin illuminator by MeMeMe and the must have Givenchy L’Or Celeste starry loose scintillating body powder – spray the gold lightly scented glittering stars all over for sparkling festive aura. And if you’re looking for a heavenly and luxurious Christmas scent the highly coveted (only 2 available in the UK!) numbered embossed vanity Fendi case containing the precious Fan di Fendi Eau de Parfum is a special gift as is Clive Christian’s No. 1 Pure Perfume - coined the world’s most expensive scent after being linked to the infamous Imperial Majesty, this perfume comes in a crystal bottle complete with a single white diamond in its collar.
‘Diamonds are a girl’s best friend’ – a total cliché but true so if you’re at a loss what to buy her, jewellery is always a winner. Making a name for herself among the fashion pack with her gold animal inspired jewellery, this charm cluster necklace complete with bird, cross and pearl by Annina Vogel gets our vote as does Bianca Jones’ cute girlie gold plated on silver bow necklace. Statement designer cocktail rings are all the rage and this YSL arty oval ring is the perfect gift for the discerning fashionista whilst these quirky Miss Marc earrings are a great stocking filler. For added festive sparkle, opt for these star bright earrings by Phoebe Coleman and for the classic ladies watch, this high quality Swiss Elegance Roamer watch with gold bracelet is indeed timeless.
If she’s a handbag aficionado, then this bronze snake Marc by Marc Jacobs clutch is for her or for tasteful Christmas style, we love this glitter snowman clasp black satin Wilbur & Gussie clutch. Or for something for the office, this Stone folio by Marshall Bergman for Apple is a chic alternative gift to the traditional briefcase.
And for the home birds, we recommend this pretty candy striped cashmere care kit gift box by Total Wardrobe Care and this sweet smelling scented Boux Avenue Pink Taffeta candle infused with delicate rose, amber and peony...mmmm.
