Christmas Day may be within touching distance, but you may find yourself with last-minute gift shopping or an uncle or sister-in-law who pops around unexpectedly. First rule: don’t fret. Instead, stave off that sinking feeling and get ahead of the game with our emergency gift buying edit.  

All things to all men

For HimChristmas is the best excuse for board games and a tipple, so our Wine & Chess Set perfectly combines the two. Appeal to a discerning gent’s nature with the Waiter’s Friend corkscrew, foil cutter, drip collar and wine stopper, before stopping for a game – or two – of after-dinner chess.


For those health-conscious men in your life, this Bugatti Juicer – seen here in chrome – is on point. Channeling the brand’s incredible craftsmanship, the antioxidant-friendly kitchen device effortlessly combines form and function in one sleek package. This is one gift that will see him through 2018 and beyond.


A combination of designer looks and high-end specifications make our Bugatti Coffee Machine a wishlist-worthy gift for that special someone. Showcase the sleek curves and retro-inspired design on your kitchen worktop – features include a double espresso facility and option to use both loose coffee and pods.


The first lady

For her

If you need lastminute inspiration for the favourite women in your life, take your cues from our edit of beautiful buys. Start the new year by creating a haven at home with our Aroma Diffuser. Its beauty lies in its simplicity: fill with tap water and a few drops of essential oil for subtle aromas that will suffuse your home.


Bring the outside in – and enjoy the appearance of fresh orchids all year long – with this 

Beadnell Pot. Handcrafted in the UK, this elegant flower arrangement will put added emphasis on beautiful details in your living space.


Tap into the geometric trend with our Origami bowl – its beautifully cast glass body and opulent gold hue will elevate any table or mantelpiece in an instant. Just remember to take care when wrapping!

Kidding around

For little ones

Leave space in the stockings for the little ones with our Musical Hip Hop Santa – perfect for keeping the kids tantrum-free for a few hours. We love the charming dance moves and singing –  kids will love them just as much. For a cuddlier alternative, look to our Animated Pug with Antlers – guaranteed to bring a smile to younger members of the household. Elsewhere, if you have a budding intergalactic explorer in your midst, our Astronaut figurine will be just the ticket.
