Emma’s Ultimate Gift Guide

It’s so easy to leave everything to the last minute when it comes to Christmas, but by the time the big day arrives, I’m usually worn-out and frazzled.

So this year I put together a list, and here are my top 10 items to make anyone feel special this Christmas:

10. Archie Grand – The Classic Notebook

An essential for any bachelor. This is the perfect stocking filler 😉

9. Lanvin – Two-Tone Metallic Leather Pouch

Its minimalist style makes this leather pouch the ideal tote for day or night, while the two-tone metallic is perfectly appropriate for the party season. A must-buy for that style-savvy sister of yours.


8. La Perla – El Color Rojo vs Agent Provocateur – Electra 

Lingerie is a necessary luxury, which makes it the perfect gift and one you can both enjoy.

Why not treat Mrs Claus to La Perla, or go for a sultry elf in Agent Provacteur. 😉 Just don’t forget their matching briefs, here and here!


7. Del Toro – Slippers

For a man with swag, Del Toro shoes are seriously cool.

6. Dolce and Gabbana – Beaded Cross Necklace

We love this ornate gold-tone necklace from Dolce & Gabbana featuring a beaded chain and a cut-glass embellished cross pendant. This is the perfect style-statement for a rebellious choir girl 😉

5. Guiseppe Zanotti – Emma Sandal

Giuseppe Zanotti will make any girl’s Christmas. The patent peep-toe is understated and classic, while the gold tusk-shaped bars that clasp the ankle make for a dramatic finish. They have my name on them already 😉

4. BOMBER x Keith Haring – ‘Luna Luna’ Skis

BOMBER are the official supplier of the US and Canadian ski teams, while Keith Haring was responsible for some of our favourite pieces we saw at Art Basel Miami Beach.

Apparently, these skis were built by a master craftsman in a small race lab in Italy, and reflect the dedication to speed, performance and durability that BOMBER is renowned for. These limited edition skis are exclusive to BOMBER and Nordstrom, and are guaranteed to make your ski buddies jealous. Act fast and don’t forget to book the chalet while you’re at it!

3. Repossi – Ear Cuff

Forget being on Santa’s good list this year, nothing says good girl gone bad quite like a Repossi Ear Cuff.

2. A Personalised Watch

Akin to Overfinch for Range Rover, Bamford Watch Department specialise in high-spec personalisation of watches from some of the major brands in timepieces, including Rolex, Audemars Piguet and Patek Philippe. This is for the man with absolutely everything. Available at The Webster in Miami and elsewhere.

And finally, No. 1. Your time. I truly believe the most valuable gift you can give someone is time. So make sure you spend yours wisely this Christmas, with the people that mean the most.

Lots of love

P.S. If you find yourself in a tight squeeze, I recommend checking out Caroline Stanbury’s Gift Library. The website has so many great gifts for him and for her, from a range of designers such as Nancy Gonzalez, Nina Campbell and Alexandra Von Furstenberg. Definitely worth taking a look, particularly if you’re running out of time, or ideas!
