Dear Santa Claus,
We’ve been jolly good this year, as always.
Please feel free to peruse our carefully-curated list of gorgeous things we’d love to find in our stocking on Christmas morning. This should certainly come in handy while you’re making your list (and checking it twice.)
All our love and festive wishes,
Debrett’s is the great oracle and fount of all knowledge that Sloanies have been turning to for decades. For instruction and advice on social skills, sharp manners and flawless style, Debrett’s has the definitive answer – time and again. From how to negotiate that promotion at work to the correct way to eat oysters, this coffee-table book is full of dreamy photography and up-to-date pearls of wit and wisdom on dating, working, dressing and dining – and a whole lot more. The ultimate lifestyle companion for any Sloanie lady.
Time for an upgrade? Apple’s latest offering comes with an improved camera and the nifty Live Photos function for GIF-style capturing, 3D touch technology (so you can now do things like ‘peek’ and ‘pop’ as well as simply tapping) and it does everything faster than its predecessors. Oh, and it comes in this beautiful rose gold color. Want, want, want! Oh, and the iPhone 6s looks great with the matching Apple Watch in rose gold. Just sayin’…
Being the passionate Anglophiles that we are, we’re all in a lather over all the totes gorgeous gift sets from this Great British brand. Stocked in London’s three finest department stores – Liberty, Fortnum and Mason, and Harvey Nichols – these quintessentially British lotions and potions are inspired by the sheer beauty of the British Isles. Extracts are sourced from produce like English rhubarb, Scottish barley, Irish Sea oak, and Welsh beetroot. We’ve got our beady eyes on this adorbs Fire and Spice box set, with smooth and honey-like extracts of malted barley from a rare and prestigious Scottish whiskey distillery. Mmmmmm – it’s Britain in a bottle!
The perfect stocking-filler! Our nifty little canvas ID cases come in a range of gorgeous designs, so there’s something for everyone. Choose from vintage florals, Aztec print and galloping horse motifs to name just a few. The wristlet features card slots on the inside, and a clear ID card window.
No Sloanie country kitchen (or city kitchenette) is complete without a few gorgeous items of pottery from British favorite Emma Bridgewater. Her evocative and homely bits and pieces are stunningly crafted and carefully hand painted from her workshop in the Midlands. Emma’s offering free personalisation on all mugs for the festive season, too. Now, we simply can’t decide between her festive joy star design, or her iconic pink hearts. Perhaps we’ll ask for both…
