On the first day of Christmas, my true love sent to me….
Whether you’ll be shopping for your Mum, brother or a husband, I know it could sometimes feel daunting to choose the perfect present. This year, we are thinking outside the box. The presents I’ve got in mind are a little unusual, have a touch of luxury and are sure to delight even the person that ‘has it all’.
The most recent additions to our ladies’ and gents’ collections have been wonderful - as previewed and admired by our lovely customers in my Winchester high street shop. Here’s a pick of the favourites!
Made from extra fine Merino wool, this Brightgate pullover by John Smedley is certain to keep your gent looking his best on casual wintry walks. I'm particularly keen on the muted colour combinations that will fit into any wardrobe.
Not just for sports enthusiasts, this hoodie ticks all the boxes of the sports luxe style. Designed by Xavier Athletica and made with premium cotton marl, the cool-down hoodie is part of our fitness range but performs just as well for lazy Sundays, early morning dog walks and post-gym relaxing.
A retro design by GRN Sportswear, this classic chopper T-shirt blends functional bamboo and silky soft cotton for ultimate comfort and style. You won’t look out of place on your cycling commute, enjoying an evening in your local pub or at a concert of your favourite band.
Versatile and eye-catching, this silk square is a sensational multitasker. Dalliance & Noble has pulled out all the stops in this wonderful stag-beetle design inspired by the symbolism of objects within Surrealist and Dutch Still Life paintings. It can be worn as a pocket square or around your neck, adding a sense of free-spirited artist to any outfit.
Gentleman’s robe is a staple of any man’s wardrobe! Beautifully British made from 100% lightweight woven cotton, British Boxers has delivered the ultimate smart dressing gown for the lazy mornings and cozy evenings.
With a handcrafted imitation-ivory handle, this safety razor from Captain Fawcett fits standard Gilette Mach 3 blades and is an absolute pleasure to use. Beautifully made, lightweight and styled in a classic shape, perfect for the gentleman’s morning routine.
Grey slouchy jumper from the softest material is a staple of every woman’s capsule wardrobe. This effortlessly stylish piece from John Smedley will take you from day to an evening, not compromising on style.
The lovely folk at British Boxers know a thing or two about loungewear - prime example are these fabulous pink tartan pyjama trousers. Made from 100% brushed cotton, they’re soft, comfortable and the first thing I’d want to change into when coming back from work!
I was very pleased to commission our local designer and artisan textile maker Ellie Fisher of Elka Textiles to make wonderful pieces, especially for our ladies’ winter collection. This handwoven cashmere and merino scarf is a must for any Christmas shopping list, it makes a truly special present to be cherished.
Stunning French lingerie set, made by Brighton Lace turns an ordinary day into a bit of a treat. The vintage style longline bralette has a luxurious feel and adds a touch of playfulness when worn under a sheer top. Matching shorts-style knickers pull the look together. Even if underwear shopping isn’t your thing, this is one set that has the power to tempt!
When I’ve first spotted this dress by Wonderlust, I knew I had to have it! Its faux-wrap style, the eye-catching pattern and a fabulous slinky material flatters every figure. Make sure you include Sophie dress on your shopping list, it’s a real show-stopper.
