Christmas can creep up on you, leaving little time to scrabble around and find the perfect gifts for your nearest and dearest.
If you are planning something special this year, you might need a bit of guidance when picking between the many potential present options.
Here are just a few luxury gift ideas to make sure that when December 25th rolls around, you are well prepared.
Irene Neuwirth Earrings
When it comes to luxury gifts for her, boutique designer Irene Neuwirth can always be trusted to deliver the goods.
The range of earrings on offer from this brand is particularly impressive, with beautiful heart-shaped opals making a particularly big impact. They are proof that you don’t have to opt for diamonds when there are so many other amazing gemstones to select.
Brunello Cucinelli Jacket
One of the most respected fashion houses in the world is responsible for some truly compelling menswear options, including stylishly cut jackets which are perfect for formal occasions and more casual affairs alike.
There are lots of different colour and material combinations available, with some Brunello Cucinelli jackets cropping up on designer sale lists in the run up to the festive season. This shows that you can buy a luxury gift while still saving some cash in the process.
iPhone XS Max
Apple’s largest, most powerful iPhone to date is the epitome of luxury in the hugely competitive mobile market.
With a cutting edge 6.45 inch display that harnesses OLED technology, the XS Max is definitely capable of delivering a jaw-dropping visual experience. Coupled with its A12 Bionic chipset and 3,174mAh battery, this phone even manages to pack in a pair of 12 megapixel cameras on the rear, making it a hugely appealing gift for any fans of photography.
Linda Farrow Sunglasses
While winter may not seem like the time to snap up sunglasses, they can actually make a very thoughtful gift, especially if the recipient is planning a skiing trip, or simply wants to protect their eyes from UV all year round.
The range of shades offered by Linda Farrow is comprehensive and undeniably luxurious, with shapes to suit all faces. From round tortoise shell-patterned specs to slender wire framed models, you should be able to find something suitable.
Gucci Velvet Cushion
Since it is a little over a year since Gucci launched products aimed at brightening up homes, it makes sense to get ahead of the pack and pick up one of its flagship soft furnishings.
Its cushions are especially compelling, combining classical influences in terms of materials and imagery, along with modern trends when it comes to tassels and fringes.
As you would expect from such a high class item, every element of the embroidery has been carried out by an experienced specialist, rather than by some automated piece of machinery. This means that each cushion is essentially a unique piece, helping it to steer clear of feeling mass produced, which will no doubt help when the wrapping paper comes off.
