For the music lover in your life, the new Attessa Turntable from Roksan (£995) is chic, sleek and the perfect present on which to play even the most treasured record collection.

A night at Claridge’s may be off the cards, but their delicious pyjamas certainly aren’t. Created for Claridge’s by Rebecca Marks of Green Wolf Studio, their very first (and very limited edition) luxury pyjamas in pure cotton feature the iconic art deco fan print in the Claridge’s classic jade green palette, finished with mother of pearl buttons, contrasting white piping and the hotel crest in gold. Sweet dreams. £225 at www.claridges.com



Speaking of sleep, specialists in shut eye Sleep 8 have created the S8 Power Eyes eye massager. Relieve the stress and strain of staring at a screen all day with this gently massaging mask, helping to improve blood circulation around the eyes and sinuses, promoting deep relaxation. Select between two modes: soft air-compression massage, and the slightly increased intensity of vibration massage. It also features a luxurious warming effect. Its rechargeable battery lasts several hours, and the compact design allows the S8 Power Eyes to fold away neatly into an included storage pouch when not in use. £89 from www.sleep8.uk




How utterly wonderful is Sipsmith’s leather satchel? The ultimate cocktailing kit for gin lovers, it’s been designed in collaboration with the iconic British bag company Cambridge Satchel Company. A wonderful gift for a gin connoisseur or aspiring bartender, included in this beautiful Sipsmith x Cambridge Satchel Company satchel is their gin cocktail book: SIP, and all the barware and spirits you'll need to craft not only a delicious Martini, but also all 100 of the cocktails. The bag includes gins, vermouth, a Martini stirring glass and beautiful copper accessories including a jigger, strainer and bar spoon. £350 at www.sipsmith.com




There’s no greater gift than starting each day with an amazing coffee and when it comes to the kit with which to make it, there’s not beating Sage. Like professional machines, the new Sage Bambino Plus (£399.95) can deliver third wave specialty coffee, delivering barista quality performance and a powerful hands-free automatic steam wand that makes microfoam milk for you ready for latte art. It starts in three seconds and makes a perfect cup, every time. Is it wrong we want to keep this one for ourselves…? www.sageappliances.com



This Is Silk’s dressing gown in Gainsborough Blue is surely the most luxe loungewear to swan about in on Christmas morning? Cotswolds based This Is Silk was founded by Sonal Keay, who wanted to recreate the old-fashioned, thick and lustrous silk she remembers from her childhood, not the thin and flimsy fabric we often see on the high street. This Is Silk uses 22 momme weight of silk, heavier than most on the market, with a superior grade that means it is more lustrous, more durable and machine-washable. Also available in cream. £94.99 at www.thisissilk.com



For the pièce de résistance for any festive spread, there is no competition to a Cinco Jotas leg of acorn-fed jamón Ibérico, undoubtedly the tastiest ham in the world. Created in Jabugo in southwest Spain, the birthplace of acorn-fed jamón Ibérico, Cinco Jotas ham is exceptional in every way.  This masterpiece will be a talking point for any Christmas feast and will make sure you go down in gifting HISTORY. £550 at https://shop.josepizarro.com
