Christmas gift inspiration starts here with engraved or personalised keepsakes that are extra special. Here’s our pick of both unusual and classic Christmas gifts for all the family, from beautiful jewellery to homewares that you won’t see on the high street or anywhere else.
For engaged couples and newlyweds, or even those celebrating many years together, these cute personalised Christmas baubles, teapot, mugs and egg cup sets below are as brilliant as they are unusual. Individually or together they make a very personal keepsake gift that will be treasured in the family home for years to come.
Candles are another classic that everyone loves, particularly at Christmas time. The gorgeous lace effect candle above is available in a choice of metallic pastel shades and will cast a pretty glow over surrounding walls.
If you’re looking for something different, then this elegant, old fashioned dip pen writing set above is a very unusual gift, ideal for writers of all ages. The adorable white ‘bear hug’ salt and pepper set will be a small and welcome addition to any happy home.
Gifts for her
Looking for something different to the usual collection of ‘smalls and smellies’ you give every year? A photo shoot and makeover experience is a truly amazing gift, ideal for someone special to you. Book a full makeover with professional hair and makeup with the shoot for the full experience. Or book yourself a shoot and give a framed portrait to your loved one.
Giving something pretty to your partner, sister or female friends is a Christmas classic. These sleek silver trinket boxes and compact mirrors are available in various shapes and styles, and can also be engraved with your message.
When it comes to jewellery, choose from sophisticated crystals, pearls and diamond-like cubic zirconia for a sparkling gift that won’t break the bank. Here’s a beautifully gift boxed 3-piece pearl set that makes a gorgeous Christmas present.
A traditional real leather wallet is another favourite Christmas gift. Add the owner’s initials for an understated personal touch, or for something extra special, these gift boxed lead crystal whiskey glasses can be personalised with a unique message too.
Simply phone or order online and we’ll send to your door. That’s another item ticked off your list and you didn’t even have to leave the house!
