25 Wildest-Dream Gifts on My Fantasy Christmas Wish List

Coming up with your own Christmas wish list can be harder than buying presents for anyone else. I know, I know—this is hardly the biggest problem anyone has ever faced, but I always dread having to answer the inevitable question posed by your parents, partner, or siblings: What do you want for Christmas

Of course, what you actually want for Christmas might not be the thing you tell them. While I always default to candles and skincare, I would never dream of telling my mum that the candle I would really like costs £145 (more on that later). This got me thinking—what would my no-holds-barred, wildest-dreams Christmas wish list look like? I decided to find out.

Over the last few weeks, I’ve been making a fantasy list of gifts ideas for women that would make me speechless on 25 December. It’s indulgent—and it’s never going to happen. Still, I had fun assembling it, and I think you’re going to have fun looking at it, too. For a dose of reality, I’ve included a handful of pieces that cost under £100, too, but they are in no way less special. In fact, some are up there amongst my tippy-top favourites.
