Best Christmas Gifts Ideas

    17 Jul 2024

    What with all the festive parties, Christmas can be a lot of fun, but let’s face it, dreaming up new present ideas every year is a pain in the proverbial. Fortunately for you, our team of elite London escorts are experts in choosing gifts – especially for that special lady in your life (even if it’s your mum). We asked them for their top Christmas 2018 present tips, and display the results below…

    Female fans of yoga will love to receive a Backslash Fit Yoga Mat. It syncs with Alexa, who will then read out a guided workout or meditation on demand. This smart mat is always securely locked into place, so it won’t slip on a hardwood floor. As if all that is not awesome enough, the Backslash will roll itself back up when you are done, allowing for easy storage!
    Personalized accessories are apparently all the rage this winter, and our ladies recommend named earrings which can be made to order. If the lady in question doesn’t like earrings, how about some personalized initial hand-carved wooden keychains?

    It is a scientific fact that 98% of women love handbags, and this year the bag of choice is the Loewe Gate Brown leather tote. Its two-toned leather will make the wearer look rather chic as she struts down the King’s Road in Fulham and can be bought at Harvey Nicks. The slight problem might be the price, as it retails just a shade below 2 grand. If that’s beyond your price range, how about the Rebecca Minkoff Medium Christy Shoulder bag which is going for the bargain price of £395 at the same store?

    If your loved one likes wine, then what could be more luxurious than some gold-plated wine glasses for Christmas? The Astrid Wine Glasses feature a bright gold, stunning honeycomb pattern that will make your next wine tasting truly decadent. They come in a pack of 4 for the very reasonable price of £34.95, so hopefully she will invite you round to try them out.
    Those with a sweet tooth will be delighted to receive sea salted caramel truffles from Bond Street chocolatier Charbonnel et Walker, available from John Lewis for just £24. Those who like savoury as well sweet tastes might prefer a classic Regency Hamper, which come complete with English chutneys and Cotswold cheeses.

    Of course, not all gifts need to be come in Christmas wrapping. Experiences have become one of the most popular presents in recent years, and this trend continues in 2018. For example, Virgin Experiences are offering a One Day Cookery Course at Rick Stein’s Cookery School in Cornwall for just £198. If your special woman prefers crime thrillers over cooking, then how about booking a trip for two on a Belmond British Pullman Murder Mystery Lunch Trip? This 5-hour round trip from London Victoria immerses you in a live Agatha Christie-style thriller, as you are tasked with finding out whodunnit. The cost for this trip is a hefty £680 from Red Letter Days, but a sumptuous five-course meal is included, and if your partner is a budding Poirot, they are going to love it!

    What do you think about the gift suggestions from our London companions? Having an expert panel of gift-givers can help you avoid some legwork as the clock counts down to the big day. We hope these ideas help you out this year, so you don’t have to resort buying an uninspired bottle of Chanel No. 5 at the late-night petrol station.
