Destination Christmas At Selfridges

Selfridges London

Yes ladies its that time of year again.  Before you even think about making pumpkin pie, the gift guides start appearing.  I of course can polish my halo, I made a start a few weeks back and boy does it feel good.  I like to be organised and have all the presents bought before December 1st.
I've learnt my lesson with toys going out of stock and heaving high streets in the run up to Santa's arrival. I like to sit back with the laptop and wait for the courier to arrive, wrap immediately (with the paper I bought in the January sales) and tick off the list.
So if you are about to make a start but are lacking inspiration, lets kick off with some goodies from Selfridges as they launch their "Destination Christmas" campaign. Packed full of exclusives and special offers to make shopping a breeze, the old lady of Oxford Street has some classy gift ideas to suit every pocket.

SELFRIDGES SELECTION Revel & Relish hamperSELFRIDGES SELECTION Discover & Surprise hamper

With Champagne from their own growers to the finest of Christmas puddings, spread the good cheer this festive season with a  Selfridges gourmet hamper.  With a special selection for  coffee lovers, cocktail lovers, even film and  breakfast lovers, there is bound to be a hamper to suit that certain someone in your life or why not treat that special family to a Celebrate and Share hamper? Shop all hampers here.

I first became aware of the Kate Spade brand courtesy of the Sex and the City girls and now the Oxford Street department store has an exclusive selection of the  New York based designers accessories including handbags, scarves, purses and jewellery
The 2 Park Avenue Beau Tote will bring out the upper east side princess in even the most discerning fashionista while the resin curve necklace is sure to become a jewellery box staple and will look perfect with the simplest of tops. The stud and bow wool hat will add a touch of class to your winter accessories and the watch collection features both classic and quirky designs for those adding a new timepiece to their Christmas wish list. Shop the Kate Spade collection here.

JO MALONE Pomegranate Noir cologne 100ml
Jo  Malone adds a little magic to her famous Pomegranate Noir fragrance this Christmas with a limited edition bottle. Who wouldn't want this beautifully presented scent on their dressing table?  £85 for 100ml  here.

The friendship bracelet trend gets a designer nod at a Christmas Stocking  friendly price, with this Anyagram bracelet from Anya Hindmarch which comes with cord and 90 beads to create your own unique identity whether funny, cryptic or even rude! At just £10 these will soon be out of stock so buy here.

Have you started your Christmas shopping yet?


  1. I'm heading here this afternoon for a Halloween Event in the Toy dept for the kids! Wish me luck but will try and sneak off to get a closer look at your top picks

  2. No. I choose one day in November. Usually a Saturday and go into Liverpool armed with a list of who I need to buy for. I don't come home until I have got everything on the list.
    As you can imagine my list is not that long just husband, mum, four children, son's girlfriend, one sister in law and one second cousin.
    I send money to my sister in law for my young niece and nephew and top up my children's gifts with cash.
    My brother and the rest of my husband's siblings don't buy gifts anymore.

  3. Oh I'm hoping to get a wee trip to London over half-term - loving the photos. Putting me right in the mood for Christmas shopping! x

  4. I have managed to buy a couple of presents in the end of season sales here in the South of France so am feeling quite proud of myself. I find men the hardest to buy for.

  5. I always vow to start early but it never happens and I'm usually panicking in December when time starts whizzing by!

  6. Thanks for the tip-off about the Friendship Anyagrams! Perfect for all those young girls I need to buy Christmas pressies back in the UK. I used to love shopping at Selfridges back in my London days, such a fabulous store. Happy (online) shopping.

  7. You are so organised having everything bought by 1st December! Great ideas here and I know I would be happy to receive one of the hampers or the Jo Malone perfume!

  8. I haven't really started yet .. but this post is definitely putting me in the mood. I LOVE Kate Spade! And Jo Malone . in fact, I may just leave this post open on the laptop and see if anyone gets the hint!!!

  9. Adore your Kate Spade & Jo Malone picks! xo

  10. I lOVE Christmas and get my decorations up early November as there are so many of them it would be a waste to wait! But it has to be Harrods and Fortnum and Mason, they are my ultimate Christmas fantasy come to life!

  11. Wow loving this post, I am organised and have my notebook and lists done, I have put together some pamper hampers and have a few gifts, I love the Jo Malone bottle it looks so cute!

  12. Love the cute beanie! Its my first Christmas in the UK for 7 years & I'm planning to go a little OTT within a tight budget! If that is at all possible! I've got 2 pressies already & will get some more next week when pay day comes around again! I'm so excited & can't wait! Ax

  13. I always leave the pressies to wrap in one go as it's a bit of a romantic notion isn't it - all snuggled up inside with the fire burning and a hot chocolate on the go etc. Never quite pans out like that in reality and I've been know to be frantically wrapping on Christmas Eve some years - far too stressful! Must take a leaf out of your wrapping procedure Sharron! Love the Kate Spade accessories xx
