Even when we think we are ahead of the game, with a stash of presents already bought, now with only a nano second until Christmas there is still lots of shopping to do, so it is all systems go. The cities are Christmassy and twinkling with fairy lights; so lovely to look at but no fun for shopping in. Sofa Surfing has revolutionised our gift buying habits.

This season at Winser London we think that our fashion items make wonderful presents for special loved ones we want to spoil. First up; the crystal necklaces, four subtle colours to choose from, these will be treasured by all girly girls. Fingerless gloves are definitely for teenage nieces, who will love them in black £39. Men and boys will appreciate the soft Merino wool scarf in any of the colours, though chocolate is my favourite choice for them £49. There is a great selection of colours for the Cashmere Blend Poncho £99 , which works for all ages and sizes too, one I have recommended to male family members for them to give to sisters. Black is cool for the young who will wear it with shorts, boots and piercings! Suitably lady like in ivory, the different colours completely change this garments fashion vibe. Now a mention of the scarves and shawls to swathe your friends in. Let’s start at the top with the most divine Luxurious Oversized Cashmere Wrap £250, delicious in champagne marl. The stole and pashmina are both lovely in size and quality. The Winser Cashmere Scarf in feather fine and can be worn 24/7 and at £95 it’s a steal. Consider too the pink cable scarf, it’s so soft and cuddly and will look as good on a Uni campus as on the set of Downton. So, lots of presents to elevate any Christmas wardrobe to be fit for a princess.
