Are you looking for a truly exceptional gift for your wife or partner this year? Then I hope this luxury Christmas gift guide will help you gather some ideas or even find that perfect gift for the woman with exceptional taste.
I have carefully selected these ideas from businesses that I know personally. As such I can vouch for both the quality of their work and their commitment to great customer service. I hope you will enjoy browsing the ideas and perhaps discover a new favourite or two.
1. Jacqui Larsson Jewellery
Jacqui is an award-winning diamond specialist and gemmologist based in London’s famous Hatton Gardens jewellery district. From her boutique pieces to her bespoke creations for private clients, her keen eye for colour, style and elegance permeate each piece. It’s hard to choose from her designs as they are all so stunning! However, my favourite boutique creation is the Diamond Leaf Moi et Toi ring in white gold. Take a look for yourself and let me know which is your favourite.
2. Atelier Dickson
Adriana Dickson is a talented leather artisan crafting handmade bags, wallets, belts, dog collars and many more beautiful items in her atelier. I was introduced to her via a mutual friend and was lucky to make a leather bag under her experienced eye. Her attention to detail is truly exceptional and Adriana will not rest until everything is finished to her own exacting standards.
Browse her beautiful work via her website and get in touch with her for a personalised gift that will grow more beautiful with age and wear.
3. Silk pillows, hair covers and more
Silk is a wonderful material that I love using in creations for my clients. It’s incredibly versatile, breathable and also very kind to wear against your skin. So it makes sense that silk pillows and hair turbans can protect your skin and hair whilst you are sleeping. There are even soft silk face masks to choose from which can help prevent ‘maskne’. Perfect for a luxury stocking filler.
4. Luxury break
I know we are not allowed to travel at the moment and the travel industry may be disrupted for the foreseeable future. However, that doesn’t have to stop you from planning a truly memorable trip for when we are allowed to travel again.
I would recommend planning your getaway with an experienced travel designer. Not only are they up to speed on all the latest regulations and restrictions they also have insider knowledge of the best places to visit.
For a truly exceptional experience look no further than Janet Mactavish. Janet’s services are simply a cut above the rest. She has visited many of the best luxury hotels around the world and can put together a holiday for you with once in a lifetime trips and private guides. Her personal experience means that you get access to all her contacts on the ground ensuring you feel like a movie star whilst exploring the hidden gems of the world.
For great family holidays, I can recommend Janine Drake from The Travel Trove. She has a wealth of experience, the patience of a saint and will go above and beyond to put together an itinerary that works for you.
5. The gift of the perfect fit
Does your partner often complain about having nothing to wear or not being able to find a pair of trousers that fit? Why not purchase a gift voucher that promises to deliver an experience she will love.
For beautiful colourful dresses look no further than Maggie Semple. Her designs are elegant and fun and her gift voucher comes in the form of a miniature dress. I wish I had thought of that idea!
You can of course also order gift vouchers from me. Each one will be customised with your personal message. Please contact me for more details and to discuss your requirements.
6. Restore an old favourite
For something truly thoughtful you could get your significant other’s favourite pair of shoes or handbag restored to its former glory via The Restory. The magic they work on everything from complex leatherwork to satin shoes is truly fascinating to watch. Dive into their blog to be inspired and surprise your dearest with giving their item a new lease of life.
7. Colour consultation
I recently visited a local colour stylist to have my colours done. It was a fun and insightful experience. Knowing which colours suit you best is so helpful when shopping for clothes and simplifies the experience immensely. It’s like shopping with a filter which allows you to hone in on the colours that are in your range and discard those which are not. Shopping is much more fun and efficient as a result.
Most colour stylists will offer individual or group consultations. You could purchase an individual gift voucher or a family experience. It’s fun to do together and you will all leave with your ideal colour swatches in a handy wallet that you can take wherever you go. I really can’t recommend this service enough. To find a stylist near you please visit the House of Colour or Colour Me Beautiful pages.
Or if you would like a personal recommendation please get in touch and I can send you a few options based on your location.
I hope you’ve enjoyed reading this luxury Christmas gift guide and that it has sparked some ideas. Do let me know how you get on. I’d love to hear if you end up ordering from any of the businesses I’ve listed.
