This winter, our stores are bursting with gifts to suit every age, taste and personality.
We’ve rounded up a selection of tempting treats below, but there’s plenty more to discover when you wander round the shops, enjoying the festive atmosphere in Wembley Park. Remember that London Designer Outlet offers the Dropit service – so you can buy as many gifts as you wish, without the hassle of having to carry your bags home.
For your favourite chef
Pro Cook has plenty for foodies to get excited about this winter. Our favourites are the Carbon Steel Wok, perhaps paired with a lovely Pro Cook Blue and Cream Apron, and the Stovetop Expresso Maker, for enjoying rich, aromatic coffee anytime.
Henckels’ Seven Piece Self-Sharpening Knife Block Set is another superb buy for the chef in your life. Denby also has a lovely range of homewares to suit any kitchen and dining room. Look out for the Large Accent Mugs in different designs and the Celeste Leadless Crystal Small Tumbler Set, which comes in a beautiful presentation box, if you’re looking for something particularly special.
Scents and stocking stuffers
The Body Shop is always an excellent place to stock up on treats for yourself and your loved ones. The Cherries and Cheer Gift Bag makes a lovely present, with a full-size Cherry, Almond and Vanilla shower gel, body butter and hand balm. For a stocking filler, the Pears and Share Mini Gift Set has a beautifully scented travel-size body butter and shower gel.
Gifts for gamers – and music lovers!
Sony has a great selection of versatile goods that will appeal to both gamers and music lovers this festive season. Its WH-1000XM5 Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones deliver exceptional sound quality, while the SRS-XB100 Mini Wireless Bluetooth Speaker is a stylish addition to any desk.
Looking for a selection of indulgent items? How about a Mini Gold Tin from Lindt to fill with the chocolates of your choice? Jo Malone’s fabulously fragranced Pomegranate Noir Candle is another win. Or how about a matching Tartan Pyjama Set from the M&S Outlet to keep you and your other half cosy all winter long?
Gift an experience
An experience gift is a lovely way to give the recipient something to look forward to. This winter, Urban Rose Beauty recommends gifting a 60-minute VIP Manicure, which comes with a glass of champagne, for a lovely hour of ‘me time’.
Bread Ahead’s popular Baking Workshop is another wonderful experience gift. Not only can the recipient enjoy the half-day or full-day session, they’ll also be able to make you delicious treats forevermore.
A Four-Class Gift Card from More Yoga is another lovely experience to gift someone, particularly as the seasonal feasting and lack of exercise give way to New Year’s Resolutions.
A theatre lover? Andrew Lloyd Webber's Starlight Express is returning to London in 2024 and tickets are on sale now.
