This Christmas Gift Guide is around the theme of luxury gifts, those products which are a little bit more special and have a more luxurious feel to them. As these are luxury gifts they are more expensive, so if you’re looking to splurge this Christmas you’ve come to the right place. We’re starting the gift guide with Clive Christian who are a leading independent British perfume house, with a vision to create the world’s finest perfumes. What makes these fragrances so special is that they use a very high concentration of fragrance (20-25%) compared to most other perfumes (15%), as well as using the best quality natural ingredients including rare and globally sourced ingredients. The design of the bottle requires just as much attention as the perfume itself. In 1872, the Crown Perfumery was created to cater for the high society in London and afar. Queen Victoria was really impressed with the perfumes so she decided to allow an image of her crown to be used for the cap of the bottle. The crown stoppers are a symbol of the brand’s supreme British quality and superiority which still remains today. The brand was took on by the luxury designer Clive Christian in 1999 who continued the original values of the house so creating pure perfumes with the most precious natural ingredients. This year Clive Christian have curated a lovely edit of gift sets for Christmas including their Original Traveller Set, which allows you to explore the delights and variations between all the perfume in The Original Collection, as well as their Original Collection Gift Sets. Their No. 1 perfume is an enchanting and sophisticated fragrance and is the world’s finest perfume, showcasing the perfumer’s signature finesse in its fine balance of 248 ingredients. Also available as a candle, this extends the experience into the home. All of the perfumes are available at the world’s most prestigious retailers including Harrods, Selfridges and Fortnum & Mason. Perfume is a truly incredible gift with beautiful memories and moments captured in a scent.

Dower & Hall also make a variety of pieces in their London based workshop which include sterling silver, gold vermeil, 18ct gold to platinum and luxury bespoke pieces, so if you are looking for a unique piece of fine jewellery they have something for everyone. I wanted to share a few pieces from their Feather Collection which was originally launched in 2013, but has remained a best selling design since. This beautiful feather pendant necklace with delicate chain and feather studs are made from sterling silver which are hand carved by Dan Dower, and as feathers often adorn the catwalks these pieces will always stay on trend.

This woody aroma complements the room with seasonal winter scents and honestly smells incredible. Crabtree & Evelyn has always been a story of exploration and this reed diffuser is no exception.The story of Laduree began in the middle of the 19th century with Pierre Desfontaines, who first thought of taking two macaron shells and joining them together with a delicious ganache filling, the recipe has not changed since. They’re famous for their delicious macarons but also have a beautiful range of gifts including this Parisienne Macarons Keyring which is available from Amara. If you’ve never heard of Amara before they sell luxury gifts and home accessories, definitely have a little look at what they have to offer as they sell some beautiful products for both men and women.
