If we had a dream Christmas list where quantity and budget were no object, it would look exactly like the edit below. Receiving pure silk sleepwear, designer handbags, fine jewellery, statement sunglasses and anything cashmere never gets old. These items are gifting classics because regardless of how many you already own and what size you might be, an emphasis on quality materials and craftsmanship will never get lost at the receiving end.
If you're completely stuck, look to brands that are renowned in their field (like Olivia von Halle or Three Graces London for intimates, for example), and go from there. A brand like Joseph is revered for creating timeless, beautifully cut womenswear, so that's also a good destination if your giftee is in the market for a new coat. For everything else, take in our edit below, and happy shopping. We're glad to be of service.
