As the last glint of gunpowder fades into the night sky it seems Christmas has snuck up on us again this year. If you are stuck for that Insta-perfect present for your loved one – do not fear as our Vic and Henry are on hand with their suggestions for the most lustworthy gifts this Yuletide!
We all love a good cup of tea (and the accompanying biscuit, obvs) and our Vic is no exception. Therefore, what could be better than the Dolce and Gabbana Smeg KLF01 kettle to ensure one can have a cuppa in style?
Price: from £399 – Available from the Smeg London store or Harrods.
Sticking with the Italian theme, our Vic loves nothing more than the the smell of the luxurious products concocted by Officina Profumo Farmaceutica Santa Maria Novella. She has a distinct weakness for Bagnoschiuma Alghe Marine, which is available from the brands’ tiny store located in the gorgeous Piccadilly Arcade.
Price: £55 for 250ml
Some of you may know that Team Keef were the winners in our recent MYZONE challenge. Headed by Victoria who hit an epic 5000 MEPS in the challenge you won’t be surprised to see that she has added these very rock star boxing gloves to the wishlist.
Is it really Christmas without any bubbles? After all, ‘tis the season to be jolly. Our Vic says be merry and bright with a case (or two) of Ruinart Blanc de Blanc.
And finally, if you really want to get in someone’s good books this Christmas, why not help them channel their inner Maria Schneider in Last Tango in Paris with this epic shearling-lined suede coat.
Next up we have Henry’s Christmas must haves, a list that truly reflects the sophisticated man we know and love, though rarely sighted.
First up, it has to be the imposing and immutable citrus fragrance of the Penhaligons Blenheim Bouquet – our Henry’s favourite pong. An absolute must have for Christmas!
When looking for the perfect boot one does not simply choose any old thing – it has to last a night of dancing at our Christmas party after all! The British-made Amsterdam boot by Church’s has a classic Ebony finish with lovely deep brown, almost burgundy hues. And, comes straight out of Northampton!
Now here it is. The present to top all presents. These Art Deco 18ct Gold & Platinum Cabochon Sapphire Cufflinks will do the trick. We’re no Christmas party DJ but a request to Henry’s wife wouldn’t go a miss!
Next up on this year’s list are Pantherella’s Hemingway Long Men’s Socks. A traditional favourite and made in little old Blightly! Wear over the calf and be super cosy. Will last for years.
And last but not least, it may not be mulled but is it really Christmas without wine? Treat your beau to a bottle (or eight), whether it is Pinot Noir or Burgundy just keep them coming!
And there we have it, this year’s Christmas must haves, a lust-worthy list of all things luxury and classic this Christmas.
