As we write this blog Christmas Day is exactly six weeks away, and that really is no time at all! The weather has been so mild recently that it’s hard to imagine the classic festive scenes of roaring fires, mince pies and mulled wine, cosy evenings in and roast turkey dinner! But regardless of whether cold, crisp winter weather arrives, one thing is certain - we really need to crack on with our Christmas shopping.
Do you love gift shopping or see it as a chore? We know some people adore searching high and low to find something that brings other people joy, whereas there are plenty of people who think Christmas is more about spending time with family and loved ones. Of course, there are plenty of people who love presents and family time and there’s no right or wrong way to spend the festive period! But if finding something gorgeous for a friend or family member is on your to-do list, here are three top picks from our website to consider!
A Festive Red Fedora
Is there any better way to cheer up the gloom of midwinter than wearing a bright and beautiful hat? A splash of colour to jazz up a tweed race day outfit or perhaps to coordinate with a colourful coat! Our divine red Dorset Fedora is made from 100% wool felt and looks so striking finished with a classic monochrome guinea fowl wrap.
Our website isn’t just a treasure-trove of goodies for women, we also have unisex hats and these divine Hayfield cufflinks which are perfect for the men in your life. Our cufflinks are hand-engineered from 20-bore shotgun caps each with an embedded Swarovski crystal and are available in a silver or antique bronze finish.
Luxurious Silk Pillowcases
If you know someone who spends their time and money making sure that their skin and hair looks as youthful as possible, why not buy them a luxurious silk pillowcase? They are made from 100% pure mulberry silk which is kind to the delicate skin on your face and helps to prevent hair breakage. The result is smoother skin and happier hair in the morning, and these beautiful pillowcases are available in classic white or chic grey silk. Remember we also have a collection of bright and colourful silk scrunchies which make ideal stocking fillers and are equally kind to hair!
This is just a small selection of the gorgeous hats and accessories you can find on our website, so make sure you take a closer look around. Something which is adding a little more urgency to our gift hunting this year is that, to put it mildly, Royal Mail is in a bit of a mess. While strikes in early November have been called off, there are still due to be over 115,000 workers on the picket lines on Black Friday, and the action might continue into December. Whatever you think about the reasons why the workers are striking, the action will have an impact on Christmas shopping this year. We’re advising our customers to place their orders early, if possible, to avoid their parcel being stuck if a strike happens when it’s in transit.
