Gifts of time and love are the basic ingredients of a truly merry Christmas and with Santa Clause only visiting once a year, we appreciate how important it is to get our Christmas Wishlists just perfect. If you are looking for some gift inspiration, we thought we would share with you what the team at Aurelia Probiotic Skincare are hoping to receive under the tree this year, as well as a special gift we are giving to a loved one.
Claire Vero - Founder
I have lusted after this newly discovered Thela Nlack monogrammed bag by Meli Melo crafted from beautiful Italian saffiano leather and finished with gold hardware. It looks very cool indeed!
These amazing carved wooden Bosworth FINLAY & Co sunglasses for Archie my cat. I am not sure he will use them though so I wonder who will!
Hannah Marsh - Marketing & Digital Director
This Christmas I am hoping for this beautiful gold bracelet by London designer Lisa King. Lisa's unique style is instantly recognisable and is richly researched with strong influences from her Thai and Indonesian background. I love the delicate design and her sometimes slightly cheeky marketing!
My sister has two very young boys who I absolutely adore but it also means that her gifts often have to be somewhat practical! However I think practicality doesn't mean you need to compromise on luxury and I have my eye on this beautiful scarf by Beulah London whose dresses and passion for positive social change is favoured by the Duchess of Cambridge - if it is good enough for Kate then is it good enough for my (very tired) sister!
Anna Lewin - PR Director
Having had my engagement and wedding rings made by the very talented team at Originals Jewellers & Gallery in Odiham, Hampshire, I would love anything silver & sparkly from them for Christmas this year!
I am going to be giving my two daughters Lottie & Coco a personalised illustrated map of their family from JennyCrayon; they are absolutely gorgeous and a really fun way of teaching them who their family are and where in the world they live.
Jess Harms - Account Director
I recently disposed of my battered old radio - I was secretly delighted that it had given up the ghost as I have been coveting a ROBERTS Revival RD60 DAB Digital Radio for a long time. I'd love the duck egg blue but it won't go that well in my kitchen so I'm hoping for the pastel cream colour.
It's so hard to find something my parents will really love and treasure so I've been working on a photo book of our wedding day from www.photobox.co.uk. They have been asking for copies of the pictures for four years so I'm pretty sure they will be pleased! Designing it has been long and laborious - I've spent hours and hours getting it just right, but they have been an amazing support this year so they totally deserve it.
Antonia Knox - Training & Brand Manager
I am totally in love with the Alex Monroe jewellery collection; the delicate, nature-inspired designs and textured gold he uses are simply beautiful. I have my eye on the stunning ‘Twisted String Bangle’ for its realistic golden string design and fine composition. Or course, the bangle would go beautifully with my Alex Monroe posy ring, which has a similar twisted loop and tiny flowers so it looks like an absolute must for me!
My boyfriend Josh is a keen adventurer and DIY aficionado and is always fixing things, large or small. I wanted to get him a special, but also extremely practical, gift. The Leatherman Wave Multi Tool is made up of 17 full size tools and is the international best seller so it should withstand even the toughest jobs! For an extra special touch I am going to get his name laser engraved on the handle so he can’t lose it on his travels.
Clare Fisher - Retail Analyst
On my list, a simple jewellery box to tidy away my everyday pieces away from the hands of my two toddlers, who love all things shiny and beaded!
For someone special, a treat for my husband and I to escape the Christmas mayhem. Our local, awarding winning restaurant The Harrow at Little Bedwyn.
Emily Mackenzie - Retail Operations Assistant
For Christmas I would love the Louis Vuitton Alma PM shiny Monogram Vernis leather handbag. I am hoping Father Christmas will heed my wish (as I don't think anyone else will!!!!)
For my lovely friend Olivia, I would like to treat her to a fabulous dinner at Sushi Samba. After making it through a tough 6 months she deserves to be spoilt rotten with the most amazing sushi, cocktails and views of London!!
Louisa Gayford - Intern
For Christmas I am hoping for these gorgeous silk pyjamas from the white company -they feel so luxurious against the skin!
For someone special I have chosen to buy my Dad tickets to the Fleetwood Mac concert in May - he is a mad fan! Buying tickets for us both will allow us to share a fun experience together and I have no doubt it will make a fun night out.
Victoria Lorkin - Operations Director
My husband is buying me a fabulous personalised Noble Macmillan diary with my initials engraved on it in gold. He bought one for me last year and I just love the format & size- it helps keeps me organised!
For my sister, I’m buying a Jenny Packham limited edition Real Luxury candle from Neom- the scent is divine and it will look gorgeous in her bathroom.
