As the saying goes, the way to a man’s (or woman’s) heart is through their stomach. Which is probably why food and drinks always make perfect gift ideas guaranteed to satisfy. In time for the Yuletide season, UK luxury department store Selfridges has introduced the The Christmas Celebration Hamper comprising two wicker baskets overflowing with 33 items such as nuts, cookies, chocolates, condiments, preserves, sweets, tea, coffee, and biscuits. Traditional staples of panettone, stollen, mincemeat (for your pies), hot chocolate and marzipan fruits are also included.

Not to be outdone, Harrods has unveiled The St James Christmas Hamper, which is well-stocked with British festive classics the likes of Christmas pudding, cake, panettone and mince pies. It also comes with jams and spreads such as spiced honey, chutney, brandy butter, port-infused cranberry sauce, and marmalade with whisky. For the little ones, there’s a variety of jellies, gummies, chocolates, and biscuits.

Also worth considering is Fortnum & Mason’s The Fortnum’s Christmas Collection Hamper filled with delightful treats. Highlights include biscuits presented in a tin that sings ‘Jingle Bells’, reindeer noses in the form of milk chocolate cereal balls, Peppermint Bark (white chocolate dusted with mint candy), Christmas spiced black tea, and blackberry and elderberry conserve — which we recommend slathering thickly on hot, buttery toast.

Make it a boozy Christmas for your loved ones with the indulgent Whisky Advent Calendar from Drinks by the Dram, which features 24 30ml drams of whisky concealed behind doors. Savour whiskies from a diversity of labels such as Balblair, Chivas Regal, Gulliver’s, Kyrö, Sheep Dip, Lagavulin, Talisker and Tobermory. The calendar comes in three colourways, but our pick is naturally the White Christmas, which depicts a beautiful, wintry landscape.

For gin aficionados, Drinks by the Dram has also rolled out a dedicated, juniper-centric Premium Gin Advent Calendar. Expect to sample 24 different types of gin from labels like Gin Ting, Hendrick’s, Hepple, Roku and Tanqueray. Get the calendar in the Art Deco colourway, which sets the drams against a vivid backdrop of blue, green and purple hues.

Travelling right before Christmas Day and fretting about how and when to do your gift shopping? The newly launched Macallan Colour Collection is a travel retail exclusive range of five aged statement whiskies available at selected stores in airports around the world. The whiskies feature natural golden-brown hues derived from their maturation in sherry oak casks, and come in packaging and boxes designed in collaboration with famed graphic designer David Carson. Standouts include the 21 Years Old — carrying notes of candied ginger and orange dark chocolate — and the 30 Years Old, which has tropical fruity notes with hints of cinnamon and nutmeg. The Macallan Colour Collection is available at the arrivals hall of Hong Kong International Airport and various other locations globally.

Planning to keep the vino flowing throughout Christmas? Wine lovers will need a Coravin wine preservation system, which is equipped with a needle that gently passes through cork so one can pour out the wine inside without actually opening it. The device fills the empty space in the bottle with argon gas to keep the remaining wine fresh so its taste and quality aren’t compromised, and reseals the cork upon the Coravin’s removal. If you’re shopping for an oenophile, the Timeless Six+ Burgundy, which pairs the product’s all-black hue with a striking red shade on top, is a stylish choice. It comes with a Timeless aerator, three Coravin pure argon capsules, six Timeless standard screw caps (for your screw top bottles), one Timeless carry case, one needle clearing tool, and one bottle sleeve.

A spectacular feast deserves equally incredible tableware. We’re particularly enamoured with the 17-piece blue and green glass dinner set by Completedworks, which is exclusively available on Net-a-Porter. It comprises four wine glasses, four tumblers, four dinner plates, two side plates, a salad bowl, a jug, and a tapered candlestick all crafted in recycled glass. The wine glasses are works of art with their delicate, swirling stemmed bases, while the glass jug is an eye-catching feature with its whimsical, sculptural lines. Dainty, beautiful and sustainable, the whole set is bound to be a conversation-starter.

For something a little breezier and über Instagrammable, go for the Anya Hindmarch Eyes leather-trimmed straw picnic set, which features a basket bag packed with plates, cutlery and cups for four people. It’s adorned with brown leather details along its straps, edges and sides, and boasts two spacious compartments. Embroidered on its front is the brand’s iconic eyes motif.

This Christmas, treat your loved ones to the luxury of smelling fabulous by giving them the ultimate scent experience. Step away from typical perfumes and pamper their senses with CELINE’s magnificent ‘CÉLESTE’ bath and body line, combined with the fascinating ‘ILLUMINATIONS’ candle.

The ‘CÉLESTE’ bath and body collection is a beautiful collection that contains cologne splashes, scented body oil, and bath milk. Explore the brand’s recently developed solid soaps, which capture the same enticing Eau De Cologne smell, ensuring a comprehensive and deep sensory experience.

In keeping with the luxury theme, gift your loved ones the enticing ‘ILLUMINATIONS’ candle, a new addition to CELINE’s candle line. That brings the brand’s unique scent options up to total of 7, making it the ideal present for individuals who love the art of fine fragrance.

If you believe in imbuing your gifts with personal thoughts, these are your options. This amazing wristband effortlessly combines aged wood with stainless steel links to create a magnificent accessory perfect for those with an eye for the extraordinary. Embrace the craftsmanship that comes from the heart of whisky culture with this timepiece, which features a classic black dial face decorated with a cork-shaped oak crown. This clock strikes a delicate balance between minimalist beauty and rustic appeal, making it the ideal gift for spirit fans who value craftsmanship as well as style.

Capture the essence of your special relationship with a unique holiday gift. Let Claudia Moldovan turn your favourite song into a magnificent wooden masterpiece. These one-of-a-kind wall sculptures are made to reflect the chosen tune’s soundwaves. Choose a clip, the chorus, or the complete song to transform it into a beautiful work of art that is sure to spark conversation.

Bridge the gap and illuminate the lives of those you miss dearly with this special Friendship Lamp. Whether they’re across town or across the world, this new design maintains the heartwarming functionality: touch your lamp, and theirs emits the same glow, sending a silent “thinking of you.” If you’re buying these for a group of friends, add a personal touch by assigning colours, so each person can enjoy their own special hue. Light up the holiday season and connect with those who hold a special place in your heart.

Help your loved ones to resist the harsh winter elements with Augustinus Bader’s ‘The Winter Radiance System.’ Each product protects while promoting skin rejuvenation and is powered by the brand’s revolutionary Trigger Factor Complex technology. The ‘Cream Cleansing Gel’ eliminates pollutants and conditions the skin, preparing it for additional treatment. Follow up with the award-winning ‘The Rich Cream’, a daily moisturiser that nourishes while slowing water loss to keep your skin youthful and healthy.

With MZ Skin’s ‘LED 2.0 LightMAX Supercharged’ mask, you can embrace the year’s biggest skincare trend. This non-invasive at-home therapy promotes general skin renewal, similar to Dr. Maryam Zamani’s in-clinic procedures. Give this advanced LED mask to a loved one as a gift to help them maintain a glowing and revitalised complexion.

Consider the House of Dior’s magnificent Advent Calendar for a fantastic holiday experience. The gorgeous advent calendar opens up to reveal stunning adornments by artist Pietro Ruffo, and is designed to replicate the iconic boutique at 30 Avenue Montaigne. An exquisite representation of the Tuileries Garden with its beautiful wrought iron work, octagonal basin, and statues, this advent calendar serves as a backdrop for 24 miniature treasures. The calendar features fragrances, skincare, makeup, and lifestyle essentials, making it the ideal gift for any beauty fan.

For adventure-seekers and travel-buffs

There’s one in every family and group of friends – the frequent flier whose life just seems to be an endless revolving door of glittering sandy beaches and exotic faraway places. These sorts never seem to tire and are blessed with an abundance of energy that they use to chase the next big thrill. To them, life is an adventure, and the world is an oyster just waiting to be explored. And, if you’re lucky enough to be the travel buff in your circle, send this gift guide out to make sure you get exactly what you want under the Christmas tree.

Adventure seekers are always on the go! There’s no time for meandering about the airport; they’re the first to clear security and customs, the first in line at duty free, and somehow always arrive at their gate with plenty of time to spare before boarding. Every airport speed walker needs easy access to their documents, money, and items at any given time. For that, we love Bellroy’s eco-tanned leather travel folio, which stores up to two passports, eight cards, and paper currencies of all sizes. It even zips up, keeping one’s documents safely tucked away to be conveniently retrieved at a moment’s notice.

Every adventure seeker wants to make the most of their time abroad, and that means there’s zero time to make up for jetlag. That means it is absolutely imperative they sleep through their flight. What better way to ensure that proper shut-eye than with Versace’s Crete de Fleur sleep mask, which is both effective as well as stylish?

Chasing down one’s next big adventure is a Herculean feat worthy of The Amazing Race. For those who waste no time getting in and out of the plane, a larger piece of luggage means lost minutes, which could be better spent hailing down a cab to start seeing the sights. If you know someone who travels light, Rimowa’s Signature Nylon flap backpack makes a great in-flight companion; it even conveniently attaches onto the handles of hard suitcases to make transportation an absolute breeze.

For every adventurer who zips through the airport at the speed of light with minimal luggage in tow, there’s a planner who comes prepared for all situations. Without a doubt, these folks have distilled their departure-to-plane-to-arrival experience into a well-rehearsed performance. They are the kings and queens of thinking ahead, with lists upon lists of places to visit and items they’ll need both in-flight and upon arrival at their destination. They’re also wonderful travel buddies, particularly if you enjoy the experience, but none of the planning that goes with it.

Help your planner friends out by giving them the wherewithal to travel with everything they’ll need. The Celine travel spray case in smooth calfskin provides protection for delicate bottles, keeping them safe from the trials and tribulations of being on the move.

If your planner friend is a stickler for organisation, the Hermes Travelsilk PM travel cube provides a structured space for the careful storage of clothes. Adorned with a Mors Ajoure motif, it is available in four alluring colours, including a wine-red shade that’s perfect for the holiday season.

Do your planner friends have travel anxiety? The Samsonite x Maison Kitsuné sling bag is a stylish and convenient way to help them keep everything they need close on hand. Adorned with the Japanese label’s iconic fox emblem in a ‘camo’ pattern, the bag provides convenient storage within its organised and spacious interiors, with detachable and adjustable shoulder straps for optimum carrying comfort.

There’s something incredibly romantic about traveling ala Audrey Hepburn on Roman Holiday. Give your loved ones the ultimate gift of style with these fantastic luxury picks – the perfect accessories to evoke quiet luxury on chic holidays abroad.

For those who want to travel in style, there’s Tumi’s International Expandable 4 Wheeled Carry On, now available in festive red to truly bring home the spirit of Christmas. Equipped with a built-in USB port, an integrated TSA lock, retractable top and side handles, a zipper expansion, and more, it’s got everything one could possibly need for traveling in ease and comfort. The kicker — plenty of storage space to keep you in festive ‘fits from Christmas to New Year’s Eve.

Nothing beats a leather duffel bag for a weekend getaway, and Gucci’s Savoy large duffel bag provides in, quite literally, a big way. Crafted of beige and ebony GG Supreme canvas incorporating a distinct pattern and Double G hardware, the design marries both form and function. A green and red web provides tasteful recall to the holiday season — with style.

Shopping for someone who wants to make a splash? Louis Vuitton’s Keepall Bandoulière 50 marries the design house’s new Epi XL grained leather with a vibrant-red colourway, making it an instant eye-catcher of noteworthy maximalism.

For those who eat, breathe, and sleep fashion

What is Christmas if not the most socially acceptable excuse to dress up in fabulous clothing? With most big brands dropping their festive collections, the option to pick the perfect piece — for yourself or the discerning connoisseurs in your life — seems to be growing with each merry second! There are no fashion rights or wrongs during the holiday season; only an endless array of sparkly dresses, exquisite bags, glittery heels, and bedazzled watches.

Constructing the perfect party fit often starts with finding the right dress. Standing out in a sea of reds and greens requires bold colours and even bolder designs, which is why India-based couturier Kangana Trehan’s offerings are a cut above the rest. Our pick includes this black slip dress, which is encrusted with Swarovski crystals with slits high enough to give just the right amount of leg. If going dark isn’t your vibe, orange can be your new black with this mini dress from The Real B. Tease out your inner sexy goddess with this embellished number, which features a plunging neck, barely-there back, and a flare that’s fit for a queen.

For shoes that are sure to seal any deal, Jimmy Choos are your best friend. Part of the brand’s festive drop, these emerald satin pumps with Swarovski crystals are sparkly enough to keep all eyes transfixed in your direction.

Pair any outfit with Bottega Veneta’s silver Sardine bag, and you’ve got yourself a look that’s going to be etched in your memory for several Christmases to come. If you’re looking for something a little less metallic, Coach is always here to serve up some hot girl handbags with their Barbie pink Tabby box bag.

When it comes to picking the right accessories to match your festive mood, no jewellery brand comes close to Tiffany & Co’s. A timeless addition to any jewellery collection, their small Wrap Necklace in yellow gold is here to impress and dazzle. Meant to embody the spirit of the women of New York City, this layered piece is your passport to global style — because why settle for sidewalks when you can own the runway?

In a world where time is money, a brand-new watch is an expression of love. Those looking to gift a timepiece for the first time can look to a Michael Kors number, which will certainly do the trick. The brand’s 38mm Runway watch features a silver brushed dial, chronograph movement, and a stainless steel pavé bracelet that’s worthy of stealing every limelight. The luminescence of the watch is meant to add that extra sprinkle of love this festive season.

The second watch on our list of recommendations is a stunner from Emporio Armani. This 42mm watch features a black sunray dial and comes with automatic movement and a lust-worthy stainless steel bracelet. Imagine whipping out this baby on Christmas Eve and undoubtedly becoming your loved ones’ favourite gifter of all time. Pretty sweet!

But for the watch connoisseurs who love their bold designs, Diesel’s 44mm Vert watch is the way to go. Featuring a black sunray dial, three-hand date movement, and a black textured leather strap, this accessory is more an architectural marvel than your conventional horology piece. Chunky enough to make a statement, yet subtle enough to seamlessly style with every outfit, the timepiece is worth every penny of that investment for anyone on your gifting list.
