Gifts for her



Kick off her Christmas morning with super-glam jewelled fuchsia court shoes or a gleaming gold watch. Aspiring beauty queen in your midst? Gift-wrap a set of matching make-up brushes or a classic, suits-everyone fragrance like the fresh and floral Princess from Vera Wang or the sultry Aurora from Ann Summers. Health nut? Snap up a blender that’s cute enough to make her daily-smoothie resolution stick (and if it doesn’t, well, there are always cocktails).

Gifts for him



Let’s be honest: the men in your life aren’t that difficult to buy for. Athletes, gamers, snappy dressers, kids at heart… our gift edit caters for them all. Choose from sleek old-school trainers, designer cologne, and a huge selection of gadgets, games and consoles – though it might be hard to tear him away from the screen when it’s time for the annual family charade tournament.

For your little ones



When it comes to gifts, children can get a little fixated on quantity over quality, but we’re all about finding the toy or gift that will keep them entertained long after Boxing Day. You can’t put a foot wrong with Lego, board games, and arts and craft supplies, while sweet cuddly toys can be cherished for years. A case in point: the all-singing, all-dancing Hatchimals Surprise. This new set features cuddly interactive twin creatures that your child needs to coax out of their egg – squeals of delight guaranteed.
