If you’re looking for gift inspiration this year, here are some timeless luxurious items which are perfect for the season of staying in and cosying under a blanket.
Food and drink
Whether taste buds are sweet or savoury, thoughtful gifts of the luxury versions of favourite food and drink items will offer a festive feast for the senses. Recreate the barista experience at home, anytime you like, with the perfect preparation machine, perhaps a solid silver teapot, an automatic bean to cup coffee machine or a bespoke hot chocolate maker?
Why not treat loved ones to a hamper of rich, velvet chocolates or gourmet cheeses to enjoy alongside favourite television shows?
Buttery soft leather goods will always be well-received, whether as a gift of a new purse or wallet, or a larger, much sought-after, handbag or travel case, or the perfect pair of shoes. Leather jewellery boxes and manicure sets are an attractive luxury item, often with a monogrammed option. Equally, a leather-bound notebook, document holder or writing set is a considerate gift to give, during a time when more people are working from home.
Gadgets do not always have to be large and expensive. From hobbies to entrepreneurs there is a gadget for every occasion.
Treat the person you love to a high end beauty gift that will appeal to the senses, whether in the form of a favourite luxury scent, or velvet-soft moisturiser, and make every day feel like a spa day.
Indulge in glassware for the home this year with a decadent set of champagne saucers or cocktail glasses, which can also be used for festive sorbets or delicious deserts for those special occasions. The open bowls of glassware help to emphasise flavours as well as providing a presentational talking point.
