It’s that time of year again when everyone is starting their Christmas shopping, or maybe if you are super organised you’re just finishing! Every year I like to write gift guide posts to share some ideas and products I have found and hope that it helps a struggling festive shopper. Today I’m kicking off my guides with the luxury Christmas gift guide for him, her and for tech lovers.
Xbox One S Battlefield 1 / £249.99 – A more streamline version of the Xbox One, it’s slimmer and more powerful. Also comes with a voucher to download the full Battlefield 1 game.
PlayStation 4 Pro / £309.99 – This upgrade features a better graphics card and double the memory all inside a slimmer sleeker design.
PS4 PlayStation VR / £349.95 – The new PlayStation Virtual Reality system will get you some serious brownie points. Now you can live the game and get more involved than ever. This is even on my wishlist, paired with a zombie game I’d hibernate for weeks playing this. Please be aware that the PS4 PlayStation Camera V2 is required for the new VR system.
Ted Baker Leather Satchel / £265 – If your man loves his bags then this would be a great luxury option. Nowhere near as expensive as a designer bag for a lady but still luxurious. Available in black, chocolate and tan, your man will look as chic as you.
Burberry Saffiano Leather Wallet / £265 – To complete his new look if you get a new bag this saffiano leather wallet from Burberry will be perfect. It includes eight card slots and two slip compartments. Small and compact and so sophisticated.
Tom Ford Leather Card Holder / £190 – If he likes his wallet to be even more compact then this card holder is probably the best option. It’s super stylish and comes in black, chocolate and slate.
Hugo Boss Watch / £179 – Obviously a gift guide isn’t complete without a designer watch but I’ve kept the price fairly reasonable. A stainless steel watch with a leather black strap it’s simple but still very sophisticated.
Givenchy Antigona Medium Leather Tote / £1,465 – Also available in small for £1,375 here this bag is the ultimate luxurious gift for that someone special. You will get bonus points to last you years with this present. Very pricey but such a gorgeous bag.
Kate Spade Purse / £168 – This purse will make the perfect addition to any ladies handbag. Available in a variety of different styles and colours, I love this shade, Porchini, it’s different but still simple and stylish.
Cluse Watch / £79 – This Cluse watch is just stunning, from a brand that doesn’t get a lot of attention but definitely deserves it. A rose gold stainless steel watch with a grey leather strap that can be changed for a different colour, it’s super stylish and at the top of my wishlist this year.
Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Lipstick Wardrobe / £220 – If you’re buying for a beauty obsessive then this set of 12 beautiful Matte Revolution lipsticks is the present to get. Also available in the K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipstick formula as well, you will make one lucky lady very happy indeed.
Aspinal of London Large Marylebone Tote / £950 – A cheaper alternative but still very luxurious this bag has a fabulous feature for any tech lover, a special tech compartment that includes cable pockets for when you’re charging on the go. The tech charger pact is sold separately at an extra £100 but it’s a great feature and a beautiful bag.
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit / £69 – Every year Hourglass release a new stunning palette and every year it gets better and better. This year they released the Ambient Lighting Edit in white marbled packaging….I know, beautiful! Featuring 5 exclusive shades, this palette is perfect for a beauty lover.
Diptique Mini Candle Trio Holiday Collection / £80 – Most girls love candles, I certainly do and I’m yet to come across one that doesn’t. For a real candle lover, spoil her this season with this beautiful Diptique holiday trio in stunning packaging. If you think £80 is a lot for three small candles, don’t worry you lady will find a use for the empty jars afterwards…if she can face burning them – I certainly couldn’t.
Chanel N°5 L’Eau / from £68 – Probably the most luxurious fragrance brand you could ever buy from, the new Chanel L’Eau is a younger fresher take on the iconic Chanel N°5. Once it’s settled on the skin it’s a beautiful light floral scent and this is high on my wishlist.
*If you’re interested in getting a fragrance for a loved one, I will be writing a fragrance gift guide as well*
Apple iPad Air 2 / from £379 – The festive season is the perfect time to all go in together and get that special person a tech piece they have always wanted. The iPad Air 2 is a great addition to any Apple fans collection however their iPad Mini’s are also a good option.
Panasonic Lumix Digital Camera* / £549 – This new Panasonic travel camera will be absolutely perfect for anyone who loves to travel as it’s one mighty camera wrapped inside such a compact design. Featuring 10x optical zoom, a 1-inch high performance sensor, 20.1 megapixels and 4k videoing it makes for the perfect travel companion. I only wish I had this for my little adventures to Dartmoor, it would be incredible. Just imagine those stunning holiday shots, you can’t go wrong with this brilliant camera. Available in three different colours.
Apple MacBook Air / from £849 – I’m writing this on a MacBook Air so I may be a little biased but it’s honestly the best laptop/computer I have ever owned or used. It’s sleek and lightweight which means using it on the go is great, the quality of the product is brilliant, mine’s 2 years old and still as fast as the day I got it! So if you have a special someone who has been lusting after an Apple laptop then this is your chance to make their day/year!
Apple very recently released their new MacBook Pro which looks brilliant, I love the new touchbar feature and I’m definitely lusting after that new laptop. Prices start from £1,449 for a 13-inch and £2,359 for a 15-inch.
Apple iMac / from £1,199 – Sadly I don’t own one of these just yet but much like the laptop, if you know someone has wanted one of these for a while, why not surprise them with an iMac. Starting from £1,199 for a 21.5 inch screen the prices go up from there.
Olympus Pen E-PL7 / £399 – Most bloggers will tell you just how much they love their Olympus Pen but it’s great for general use, traveling, family photos, landscapes, it takes such beautiful photos and I absolutely adore mine. It’s a great investment piece, especially if you know a blogger who really wants one! They have recently released the Olympus Pen E-PL8 however I much prefer the look of the 7.
Olympus Leather Handstrap / £14.95 – To complement their lovely new Olympus Pen a wrist strap is a must! These come in a variety of shades and the simple design is so chic.
Olympus M.ZUIKO 45mm f/1.8 Lens / £179 – For any avid photography lover, one of the things I love the most is getting that depth of field and beautiful blurry background, this lens will do just that. It’s a must for any photography lover and again, it’s on my wishlist. It comes in black and silver to match the Olympus Pen that you have.
Apple Watch Series 2 / from £269 – If you have an avid Apple fan in your home then the Apple Watch may be for them. Series 1 is still available at a cheaper price, however Series 2 has a built in GPS and is waterproof, pretty cool.
Of course any of the gaming consoles are great for tech lovers too but in risk of sounding like a parrot I didn’t include them again but everything is linked to make your Christmas shopping as easy as possible. I hope you have found this luxury gift guide useful, they always end up just being a huge wishlist for myself but I tried my best to contain myself this time.
