curated by Adrianne Webster

FOR CLASSIC BAG LOVERS | Holly bag in Sand, £395, C Nicol

You can’t go wrong with a tan bag. In fact, we’re willing to say every wardrobe needs one. This bucket bag, by Scottish designer C.Nicol, plays with form in a modern way, while appealing to any traditionalists’ heart.

FOR AT-HOME CHEFS | Mildred’s Easy Vegan, £26, Oliver Bonas

FOR THE BEAUTY OBSESSED | Posh Lipstick in Pop, £37, Victoria Beckham Beauty

2023 was the year of the Beckhams following the release of their instant-hit Netflix series. But away from the runway and the small screen, Victoria has been making a name for herself in the world of cosmetics; namely her eyeshadows and liners that make up her signature smokey eye look. We also love this lipstick – slimline enough to tuck into pockets and clutch bags this party season, and the perfect shade of berry red.

FOR MINIMALISTS  | Scrunch Gold Vermeil Earrings, £350, Completed Works

Luxury gifts for her and him

An actual hair scrunchie was used in the design process of these earrings to create the unique pattern and texture. Arty people in your life will love.

FOR A BIG STATEMENT | Cartier Panthère de Cartier Watch, £3,950, Laings

Nothing about it smells synthetic and it’s a perfectly romantic scent for anyone adventurous. Just a stunning scent, well blended, refreshing, bright— and that kelp note? Blissful.”
