Christmas is finally upon us. Yep, our decorations have been up for a fair few weeks – haven't yours!? Our tree is getting delivered later this week – a real one! In a pot! And I am so excited. After all, it's never too early to get in the festive spirit. 

This gift guide is slightly later than usual, and a little later than planned – but good things take time, and as they say, better late than never. I've been putting together my annual luxury Christmas gift guide since 2016 – can you believe it!? And I'm back again with the most luxurious pieces that are perfect for gifting to loved ones or popping on your Christmas wish list this year. 

From luxe timepieces to cosy slippers, opulent perfumes and heady candles – there is something for everybody. Literally! More refined and select than my other gift guides, I've only featured anything that I deem worthy of being shouted about from the rooftops – so please rest assured that I LOVE everything within this gift guide. Promise.

Luxury Christmas Gift Ideas for 2021

Luxury Fragrance from Floral Street*

Floral Street is the epitome of luxury when it comes to fragrance. Potent and heady, strong and classic – having discovered this opulent brand just a few weeks ago, it's safe to say I'm head over heels in love with everything about this brand. There are three items I've tried out from Floral Street, and each one of them would make a stunning standalone Christmas gift for anyone in your life who adores floral fragrances and sheer luxury. 

The Wonderland Bloom Candle (£34) has got to be one of the most potent (in the best way imaginable) smelling candles I've ever smelled. With 40 hours of burn time and a stunning array of fragrance, this candle makes the perfect Christmas gift. With notes of pink candy floss, pink peonies, fresh guava, and lemon – it's chic and full of feminine fragrance. 

I love the candle so much, but I love the perfume even more, and the Wonderland Peony Eau de Parfum lives up to everything you could imagine. Everything you could possibly want from a sweet yet floral fragrance, this scent is great for anybody who's partial to gourmand fragrances. I've got the 10ml, which is perfect for my handbag, and I can honestly vouch for the impact that this fragrance has. With similar notes to the candle, this perfume also boasts of pink pepper scents as well as woody blackcurrant. 

The Black Lotus Eau de Parfum is another great fragrance from Floral Street – but definitely one for spicy, heady and woody fragrance fans. A best-selling fragrance, the Black Lotus scent combines red peppercorn with saffron, English-Rose with papyrus. Strong and full of attitude, this powerful fragrance is perfect for any lovers of musky scents, and fragrances that linger for hours.

Pink Pepper EDT 200ml from Marks & Spencer

A stunning fragrance that would suit anybody who adores sweet and fresh gourmand scents, the Pink Pepper Eau de Toilette from Marks and Spencer combines zesty orange blossom with floral pink pepper and soft jasmine. At a steal of a price, 200ml will only set you back £12.50 – which is amazing for such a strong and potent fragrance. Although an EDT, this scent definitely lingers. Perfect for sisters, cousins or nieces – this fragrance is vibrant and full of fun.

Chloe Nomade from Perfume Direct*

An uplifting and feminine fragrance that has warming and woody notes, the Chloe Nomade perfume balances light and dark perfectly. Elegant and sophisticated, this musky and heady scent makes the perfect gift for any classy lady in your life. With notes of plum, citrus, bergamot and freesia, as well as oakmoss, patchouli, amber, rose and sandalwood – this fragrance is really a treat for the senses. This bold fragrance is luxurious and opulent, yet can be worn everyday as a signature scent. Gift to a best friend, girlfriend, mum or sister. Chloe Nomade is available from Perfume Direct

I Wish I Knew This Earlier: Lessons on Love by Toni Tone*

The perfect Christmas gift for any young woman in your life who needs guidance, this Sunday Times Bestselling book will be a hit with whoever needs this in their lives (trust me, we all need this). Covering all bases when it comes to dating, relationships, breakups and love – Toni Tone educates and offers advice, in the way a big sister would in her book I Wish I Knew This Earlier: Lessons on Love. Speaking from experience and with the utmost empathy, Toni Tone talks the reader through healthy boundaries, goals, comfort zones, and taking responsibility. Gift to a little sister, younger cousin or best friend, and let me assure you that they will love it, and use it as their ultimate guide on love.

Onaie Sheepskin Slippers*

Bespoke handmade slippers? That don't break the bank? Well, Onaie is the brand for you. Priced at around £39, these affordable, comforting slippers are extremely cosy. Handmade and hand-crafted with genuine leather, these slippers feature sheep fur lining and a stunning design on the front. Lined with sheep wool these gorgeous slippers are the cosiest things you'll ever put on your feet. I have the Pink Embroidered Sheepskin Slippers and the Star Sheepskin Slippers – both of which are sumptuously soft, comfy and great for wearing around the house.

Chelsea Peers Pyjamas from Simply Be.*

The ultimate Christmas gift – pyjamas. Perfect for gifting to literally anybody, Christmas isn't Christmas without pyjamas beneath the tree. Chelsea Peers have been my favourite brand of pyjamas for around a year. I first tried out their loungewear last Christmas and have been a total convert ever since. I was a loyal high-street pyjama girl before, but since investing in Chelsea Peers – I'm a total convert. Investing in good quality pyjamas that look good and last for a long while is so important, so why not give them as a gift this year? The Chelsea Peers NYC Gold Foil Bee Jersey PJ Set and the Gold Foil Pineapple Set are the perfect festive pyjamas that can be worn throughout the entirety of the year. Priced at around £38, these luxurious PJs will always be a hit.

Beauty Electricals from BaByliss*

The 3Q Hair Dryer and the 9000 Cordless Straightener from BaByliss make the perfect Christmas gifts – because Christmas isn't Christmas without luxury beauty electricals. The BaByLiss 3Q Hair Dryer comes after 50 years of drying expertise, and is their best dyer yet – making it the ideal gift for any glam-obsessed girl in your life. With a high speed airflow and ultra-fast drying, you'll get frizz and static free results in an instant. The BaByliss 9000 Cordless Straightener on the other hand is the first high performance cordless hair straightener that combines micro heating matrix technology with cordless performance. Charge up, take with, and go – hairstyling has never been easier. Delivering heat instantly, you'll have smooth, silky hair in the swipe of the straightener – in any location. 

The Camden Watch Company*

The Camden Watch Company is an independent British brand designed in the heart of Camden. With an aim to create beautifully thought-out and exquisitely designed timepieces, the brand succeeds tenfold. This gorgeous timepiece – the No.27 Rose Gold and Oxblood – is a modern reworking of the classic vintage dials found on Victorian floor clocks and pocket watches. With slimmed down Roman numerals, ornate studding (which evoke the rivets used in the railways on bridges and tracks), and a colour palette that oozes opulence – what's not to love? Retailing at £108, which is low when you take the craftsmanship and sheer beauty into account, this timepiece makes the perfect present for any luxe-lover with a penchant for class.

SANTE + WADE Queenie Red Sneakers*

Designer trainers underneath the tree? Yes please! These stunning red and white sneakers from black-owned brand SANTE + WADE, make the perfect gift for Christmas (or just about any occasion imaginable). The Queenie Red Sneaker retails at £165 and boasts of a classic (and timeless) athletic silhouette. With a luxe white upper leather that contrasts with the coloured design on the side panels, these trainers are stylish and comfortable – meaning you won't have to compromise. With a cushioned footbed made from a breathable high-density memory foam and recycled cork – they're super springy and great for everyday wear. Perfect for gifting to loved ones who are fashion-obsessed and trend-led, these sneakers would make an ideal Christmas gift for any style-conscious person in your life.

Elomi Matilda Bra and Briefs*

If you follow me on Instagram, you'll know just how much I rave about Elomi and their stunning Matilda bra. PERFECT for girls with fuller busts and shapely curves, Elomi was created with curves in mind. The Matilda bra is a soft-shelled bra that doesn't have any padding. It's in a versatile plunge style, and can be worn with so many different necklines. The Matilda bra (£42) and matching briefs (£24) in the Crimson colour-way (which is brand new), makes such a great gift for any lingerie lover. 

Dear, Dahlia Eyeshadow Palette + KVD Liner*

For makeup lovers, the Mesmerizing Moment Eyeshadow Palette from Dear, Dahlia would make such a special gift. Bursting with stunning, highly pigmented eyeshadows, this palette features an array of nudes, pinks, and shimmery champagne hues. Dear, Dahlia is available from Look Fantastic, where they stock a vast array of beautiful offerings from this gorgeous brand. 

If you're gifting an eyeshadow palette, you'll be in their good books if you complete the gift with a KVD Tattoo Liner. The ultimate eyeliner for any makeup lover, this precision, smudge, last-all-day-long liner is a cult classic for a reason. KVD Tattoo Liner is available from Feel Unique, where they stock even more KVD goodness.
