Stuck for how to spend a healthy budget on loved ones this Christmas?
We’re here to help with our guide to the best gifts for under £250. From jewellery to fashion and with some spa treatments and technology thrown in for good measure, we’ve got it covered.
Plain Travel Collection
Aspinal of London
The perfect gift for that globe trotting best friend, Aspinal of London’s Plain Travel Collection is divine. Ideal for holding your passport, travel docs, tickets and money, it also comes with two gorgeous leather luggage tags for pimping your suitcase. We love it in Smooth Cognac and Stone Suede.
Diptyque Un Air de Diptyque Electric Diffuser
Cult candle brand Diptyque has launched its electric diffuser, Un Air de Diptyque, and it’s pretty much the only thing you home needs in 2016. Evenly and discreetly distributing its to-die-for scents using air currents, it’s beautiful as well as functional.
Got that hard-to-buy-for foodie in your life? Forget the personalised cheeseboard or (yet another) wine-tasting experience. Michelin-starred chef Jason Atherton has just teamed with food mag FOUR and Boadicea the Victorious, the British fragrance creators, to debut FOUR fragrance, Vetiver Imperiale. Housed in a seriously stand-out bottled, the powerful scent blends citrusy crispness with spicy undertones that works for either sex. They won’t be disappointed.
Eleanor gold peacock feather
We love this House of Florrie watch – perfect for the slimmer wrist. With a gold satin finish, it comes with interchangeable printed leather straps so you can match your watch with your outfit or mood. Our favourites are the Gold Peacock Feather strap and the Rose Gold Florrie Fan.
Journey to Africa
It is a truth universally known that women love a good spa treatment. Why not treat someone to a sumptuous massage at the breathtakingly gorgeous St Pancras Renaissance? The spa at the iconic hotel is currently offering a variety of spa journeys inspired by destinations around the world – you know your mum would love a Journey to Africa, which includes a Crème De Rassoul wrap and a Moroccan massage. You can thank us later.
Taylor leather and mother-of-pearl headphones
Friends, the swanky headphone designer, has got music-on-the-move style on point. Treat your trendy friend (or yourself) to some Taylor leather and mother- of-pearl beauties to ensure plenty of jealous glances on the tube.
Nordic Rabbit Luxury Faux Fur Throw
If you’ve ever wondered what the most stylish way to beat the post-Christmas blues is, it’s owning one of these faux fur throws so you can stylishly hide from January. Tielle Love Luxury’s irresistibly sumptuous throws come in Alaskan Fox, Nordic Rabbit and Snow Fox, and are the perfect accessory for that designer hotel-suite look.
Grenson Stanley Leather Wingtip Brogues
A man can’t go wrong with a good pair of Grensons. Buy your better half a timeless pair of burnished tan Stanley Leather Wingtip Brogues – ideal for the man who knows exactly how to rock that smart casual dress code.
ghd CURVE® CREATIVE WAND GIFT SET
Spent the last decade thinking ghds are only for creating sleek, poker-straight locks? Think again – the ghd Curve Creative Wand is the best thing you can buy to create natural looking curls that don’t look rigid. Buy the gift set in Arctic Gold for extra wow factor. Oo err.
SIREN MEDIUM STACKING RING
Fashpack favourite Monica Vinader’s iconic rings don’t seem to wane in popularity. Make like Jourdan Dunn, Kate Winslet and Solange and stack them up for a layered look. We love the moonstone Siren medium ring which goes with anything and everything.
