In no particular order, here are a few of our favourite potential Christmas gifts. This year, we’ve focused on everyday luxuries alongside a few bigger ticket items, generally avoiding novelty seasonal items to focus on the kind of timeless treats that’ll be a pleasure to use all year round for our Christmas 2019 Gift Guide.
For Yoga Lovers
Selfridges is always worth a look if you’re in search of something a bit special to put under the Christmas tree. If you’re looking for a slightly quirky gift for the yoga lover in your life, we love the Brogamats Original Yoga Joes set of nine (£25) from The Conran Shop within Selfridges. https://www.selfridges.com/GB/en/
For men with an eye for detail
Forget about socks as a classic stocking filler and opt for something a bit more luxurious this year! We love this striped wool scarf (£50) from GANT, which will go with most outfits and will add some very welcome warmth and comfort on cold mornings without compromising on style! https://www.gant.co.uk/
For those who take their skincare seriously!
It’s no secret that the His & Hers team have something of a La Mer addiction. If you’re buying for someone who appreciates a touch of luxury, we’d recommend The Multitudes Of Moisture Collection, featuring La Mer’s lovely lip balm with a subtle hint of mint and their hand cream. Applying these everyday essentials will feel so much more indulgent than usual – perfect for this time of year when central heating and chilly weather makes lip balm and hand cream a particular handbag must-have. Online exclusive: £70. https://www.cremedelamer.co.uk/
For the impossible to buy for men in your life!
We know it’s a cliché, but the His & Hers team firmly believes that it really can take a bit more thought to find the perfect gifts for the important men in your life. Rather than going for the classic stocking fillers, we’ll be putting in the research this year, asking searching questions and doing our homework, reading blogs like Lillicoco’s on the best jewellery pieces to buy for men this Christmas. Admittedly, this isn’t the fastest way to blitz your Christmas shopping, but we’ve all had that slight sinking feeling when giving someone a last-minute, hastily wrapped gift, versus the sense of satisfaction when you feel like you’ve found someone the perfect present (and yes, we’ll admit that the more difficult that person is to buy for, the more smug we feel when we find them the ideal gift!)
For Fragrance Lovers
Jo Malone London’s Magic & Mayhem collection not only features a delicious new fragrance, Jo Malone London Rose & Magnolia Cologne (RRP £104 for 100ml), it also includes some of His & Hers’ old favourites, such as Pomegranate Noir, in beautiful limited edition packaging. For fragrances and candles that’ll look just as beautiful on your dressing table as they do under the tree, you can’t beat Jo Malone London. https://www.jomalone.co.uk/
We love Next’s childrenswear for Christmas. From PJs to Christmas jumpers, you’ll find a host of cosy, colourful options which kids will love wearing over the holidays. https://www.next.co.uk/
For Good Hair Days
Aveda’s personalisable paddle brush has been so popular that until recently it was sold out. At the time of writing this feature, it was back in stock. This brush has been designed to minimise damage to hair while blow drying or styling. RRP: £30 (plus £5 if you choose to personalise the brush). Aveda.co.uk
