There are some people in our lives that, for whatever reason, we really, really want to impress. We envision astounding them with a gift that they could only have dreamt of. Occasionally, we seek to elicit a reaction that surpasses a squeal of delight. Dumb-founded, jaw-dropping, earth-shatteringly surprised is the goal: excited and overwhelmed in equal measure. Sometimes, you just want to give a gift that good.
They say there’s no such thing as a selfless good deed, and in this instance, we're inclined to agree because to be the facilitator of a moment this special on the 25th of December would make the giver feel pretty great too. (Just not quite as great as the recipient of the Gucci holdall... or a Burberry coat... or a pair of Christian Louboutins). Giving a great gift is about more than the transient moment on Christmas morning, it’s about letting someone know what they mean to you long after they’ve pulled off the paper.
We’ve curated a collection of gifts that will transcend to the hall of gift-giving fame. These are the main event, the pièce de résistance of present giving, a collection of items that will evoke bewildered gratitude from the recipient. Whether it’s a family member, a friend or long-enduring partner that deserves a physical manifestation of your affection here is a selection of clothing and accessories that say everything you want to, without you having to utter a word.
