There’s no doubt that Christmas feel extra special this year, not least because you’ll be reuniting with family and friends after some time apart.
But a way to make it even more festive is with the joy of giving gifts that are not only thoughtful, but classic enough that you’ll love them for years to come.
If you’re in need of gifting inspiration for yourself, or your loved ones, these items are high on our editors’ wish lists.
For the accessory lover
Nothing elevates and transforms an outfit quite like an accessory, and of this Burberry has many, which vary from the classic to the trend-setting. Its timeless selection of scarves, including its signature cashmere collection, is carefully crafted at a 200-year-old Scottish mill and available to personalise.
You can’t go wrong with the classic check cashmere, available in no less than 18 colours, ranging from cream to camel, though we personally love the archive beige as you’ll be hard pressed to find a more iconic style. You can also get it personalised with your initials, making it even more iconic.

That said, the reversible check and monogram scarf is a great versatile option thanks to its two-sided print. With one side boasting the archive check, and the other the house’s trademark monogram design, the outfit combinations are endless.

For the handbag obsessed
Nothing says ‘I love you’ more than a designer handbag, beautifully wrapped in that trademark monogrammed packaging. There are different options you can gift this season, depending on what tone you want to set.
The TB is the ultimate timeless piece. With its distinctive Thomas Burberry monogram clasp, it was inspired by an original archive drawing of the label founder’s initials, with a modern twist.
