Our Luxury Christmas Gift Guide 2016

Ayten Roberts

It's sometimes tough thinking what to get your family, friends and partners for Christmas so we thought we would give you a helping hand...

For Him

Men's Gift Guide - Cocktail Book

We don’t just stock elegant lingerie; we also cater for the men in your lives. Here are a few ideas to put a smile on their faces…

The Gentlemen’s Guide to Cocktails. Has your other half ever wished they were more suave and sophisticated? Now they can learn all the tricks of the trade from the experts and know their margaritas from their mojitos. With over 150 cocktail recipes you’ll be hosting the best party this New Year.

Luxury Men's Socks Christmas Gift Guide

Socks? Bit of a cliché isn’t it? But when the socks in question are made by Pantherella from our good friends British Boxers you can be sure they will be very well received. Soft and warm and ideal for keeping out the cold this Christmas.

Luxury Men's Cotton Boxers Ayten Gasson

Whether you favour the figure-hugging stretch or the comfortable cotton boxers we have a great selection in a variety of colours. Choose from bright red or multi-coloured stripes if you’re feeling particularly daring, or opt for the more classically conservative blue pinstripes. Whatever colour you go for you can guarantee a gloriously comfortable fit with British Boxers.

For Mum

Christmas time is the ideal time to treat your family and we think we have the perfect gifts to make mum’s day.

Silk Sleep Set By Ayten Gasson

 

Why not treat her to an Eyemask and Lavender Bag set? They come in a range of colours but the Orla set features a particularly beautiful Liberty of London print. The eyemask is ideal for relaxation and the lavender bag will provide a subtle, fresh aroma to clothes drawers. We automatically gift box all our full price pieces so ordering these two together means we sort out the packaging too!

We also have a wide range of luxury stationary and one of our favourites is the Esmie notebook. Covered with a beautiful hand silk screened cover, these hardback notebooks come in a range of designs. Ideal for your mum to make your Christmas list for next year!

 

Champagne and Pomello Kew Vintage Tin Candle

Adding a touch of elegance to any room, our Kew vintage tin candles not only look good, but come in a range of natural botanical fragrances that create a wonderfully natural aroma. Our favourite is the Champagne and Pomelo but there are plenty of others to choose from.

For Best Friends

We all like to treat our best friends at Christmas and we have a great selection of gifts to suit those very special people.

Mustard Tights By Hose With Printed Bees

Our range of Hose tights come in a variety of innovative and fun designs – from bees to shells. Hose are another wonderful Brighton-based brand that we love and all their tights are 100 denier, making them a very stylish way to keep out the Christmas chill.

Luxury Ethical Gift Ideas By Ayten Gasson. Noctua scented candle

Our Noctua scented candles come in a range of exotic fragrances and are all packaged in a beautifully illustrated gift box. These hand poured candles come in a reusable owl shaped glass to show off how wise and thoughtful you have been in your gift buying!
