18th December 2020
From fine jewellery and scented candles to leather goods and silk pyjamas, there’s still time to find the perfect present in our curated Christmas round-up
Boodles Raindance ring
This year marks the 20th anniversary of Boodles' iconic Raindance ring - and 10 years since the V&A selected it to display in its permanent collection - so to celebrate, the British jeweller has released a new take on the classic. Available in a choice of two sizes, the anniversary ring is set in platinum and scattered with rare fancy white diamonds (weighing 2.32 carats in total) and pink diamonds (quarter of a carat).

Desmond & Dempsey pyjama set
One of our favourite PJ brands, Desmond & Dempsey's gorgeous designs come in a wide range of jazzy prints. This Christmas, we have our eye on the Sansindo Tiger Print pyjama set in navy and pink. Printed with big cat repeats, the shirt and bottoms have an elegantly tailored silhouette, meaning they're ideal for lazy daytime lounging as overnight wear.
E.B. Meyrowitz glasses & case
A thoughtful gift for the spectacles-wearer in your life, this festive limited edition sees a pair of E.B. Meyrowitz's "The Birdie" glasses, crafted in walnut burl and buffalo horn, available to purchase with a smart Chesterfield leather case in pine green.
Savoir bespoke dog bed
Having spoken before about Savoir's ultra-luxurious beds, recently we were delighted to discover that the British brand also caters for canine friends too. Like its beds, each of Savoir's dog beds and toppers are hand crafted and made to order, meaning you can choose the perfect size and shape for your hound whilst also complementing your home with the right style and fabric. Interested parties should contact one of Savoir's showrooms.

Harry Winston Premier Precious Kaleidoscope Automatic 36mm
Bursting with vibrant colours and patterns, Harry Winston's limited-edition Kaleidoscope collection brings the hypnotising beauty of a kaleidoscope to life across a range of jewels and timepieces. We particularly like this beautiful watch in blue beaded mother-of-pearl, complete with cabochons of malachite and turquoise. 72 brilliant-cut Paraiba tourmalines also feature, along with 40 brilliant-cut diamonds, 12 pear-cut diamonds and six marquise-cut emeralds.
Linley Henley watch winder
A novel idea for watch lovers, Linley's beautifully crafted walnut winder displays and rotates a timepiece set into it, ensuring that its owner will always be on time. Oscillating between clockwise and anticlockwise rotations, the watch will complete 1,900 revolutions every 24 hours. Should your timepiece have any special characteristics to consider, you can customise the program using a dedicated software program on your computer.
Turnbull & Asser blanket
Rounding out its extensive collection of men's shirts, tailoring and accessories, Turnbull & Asser's cosy blankets are just the thing this winter. Above is a charcoal appliqué hand-stitched cashmere style, inspired by traditional patchwork techniques. Made in England, the 100% cashmere blanket features hand-sewn silk tie patches repurposed from past Turnbull & Asser collections.
Dior Rose des Vents cuff bracelet
At Dior, fine jewellery creative director Victoire de Castellane recently added new pieces to her popular Rose des Vents line, reimagining Christian Dior's signature "lucky star" in the form of miniature medallions, creating the image of a wind rose with eight-pointed stars.This elegant 18-carat pink gold bracelet is detailed with mother-of-pearl and 2.30 carats of diamonds.
Connolly x Elie Bleu shagreen turquoise bridge set box
As indoor pursuits remain high on the agenda - and we have certainly have had our fill of jigsaw puzzles - consider shaking things up with a game of cards this Christmas. Fashion brand Connolly has joined forces with decorative wooden object specialist Elie Bleu to create this beautiful bridge set, complete with two sets of cards and a specially designed lock and key.
Lee Broom Fulcrum candlestick
A sculptural play on the concept of pivots and supports, Lee Broom's clear monolithic candlesticks show a cylindrical stem appearing to balance on a central supporting sphere. Shown here in optical glass, the candlesticks are also available in white or black marble.
