Today marks 4 weeks until Christmas a.k.a. time to accelerate your Christmas gifting efforts. We’ve rounded up the LuxDeco creative team and some of our designer friends who reveal what they’re gifting (or hoping for!) this year.

Sam Aylott – LuxDeco furniture designer

“I appreciate quality as much as I appreciate design and Ralph Lauren always wins for me. This throw is the ultimate RL signature. I love its navy and grey colourway and simple monogramming. It’s at the top of my list.”

“What’s not to love about this walnut poker set? An evening of poker—it’s a wintertime tradition!”

“I often lean towards nautical inspirations and this walnut whisky set is no exception. It’s ideal for catching up with friends over a dram.”

“These globe bookends are a touch of old-school luxury. They would add interest and style to my bookshelf.”

Laura Hammett – interior designer

“[A set of fluted double old-fashioned tumblers] for my husband who is a big whisky drinker. I love the contemporary take on the cut glass classics and the whole collection is stunning so can be added to over time. “

“[Assouline’s The Impossible Collection of Jewellery] for my mother because she has a wonderful collection of antique jewellery and you can never give too many books in my opinion. They are my most favourite thing to style with.”

“[AERIN’s what shagreen jewellery box] for my best friend. The soft warm tone of this shagreen jewellery box looks perfect on any dressing table.”

“[Oyuna’s Legere Cashmere Gown] for my mother in law (or a sneaky gift to myself…). A cashmere robe is the ultimate indulgence and the perfect Christmas gift. The length and soft beige tone of this one is very flattering.”

Michael Aram – brand founder

“Add an elegant and lively accessory to your dad’s desk or dresser with the Rainforest Trinket Box.”

“Give mom a gift as beautiful and memorable as she is with the Calla Lily Rose Bowl Vase.”

“Help make [new homeowner friends’] first holiday party even more memorable with the Butterfly Ginkgo Nut Bowl.”

“Universal and classic, the Twist Silver Frame is a great gift for anyone in your office.”

Joanne Quinn – LuxDeco interior designer

“The perfect cashmere accessory to curl up with on those winter nights. This is the ideal gift for every woman.”

“The winter months are a great time to refresh your dining rooms with sculptural pieces that are certain to capture your guests’ attention.”

“Not only is this piece the perfect game to entertain family and friends with over the holiday period, it will also look stylish all year round.”

“Who doesn’t love a limited edition? This beautiful handbound book would be a great decorative accessory in a man’s study.”

Fiona Barratt Campbell – interior designer and FBC London founder

“As an ex-international football player and current football coach, this beautiful crystal and aluminium foosball table is the perfect Christmas gift for my husband [ex-footballer and football coach Sol Campbell]. All boys love their toys and this ultra-sleek investment piece is ideal for grown-ups and their inner child. My only issue is how to wrap it?!”

“Mum adores anything and everything cashmere so this stunning reversible throw is the only gift for her. Immeasurably soft and cosy for the season, I can picture this throw at the end of my parents’ bed, ready to warm on cold winter nights.”

“When buying a gift for friends, particularly a Christmas gift, I always like to go with something they would never purchase for themselves. An item that would be seen as an extravagance, a ‘want’ rather than a ‘need’. I immediately thought of my best friend when I saw this luxurious rabbit fur eye mask. She sometimes has trouble falling asleep at night so I know this mask will help her drift into dreamland.”

“[For me?] Why not?! It’s Christmas. I am very interested in learning about the different varieties of wine across the globe and becoming a connoisseur. This is the perfect treat to peruse through on the sofa in front of the fire.”

Charu Gandhi – Elicyon architect, designer and founder

“My Christmas theme this year is ‘metallics’. This Aiveen Daly cushion has a beautiful pearlised finish and I love the woven detail and texture of the material.”

“My husband is a watch aficionado, and this beautiful watch box will sit perfectly on his desk.”

“You can never have enough cashmere throws, and this Oyuna bedspread in dove grey is the ultimate in luxury. I love using contrasting edges to bring a crisp, tailored effect to a scheme, and this will tie that in beautifully.”

“Art plays a significant role in my projects, and I am always looking to add to our artwork collection at home. This beautiful, feminine sculptural objet from Aerin in white marble really speaks to me. It would sit very well in my cornucopia of curated pieces on my dressing table.”

Brigitta Spinocchia Freund

“[For my sister], a beautiful box for little trinkets or jewellery with a rose quartz stone bringing metaphysical properties and loving energy.”

“[For Dad]. He’s an Italian and loves his Tajarin al Tartufo (truffle pasta).”

“For my husband, for his extensive collection of Patek Philippe watches, ideal for travelling with too and love how it can act as a display box as well as winding.”

“[For my daughters], a gorgeous trinket that can be treasured and will remind her of me as it has connotations to my nickname ‘Be’.”
