Present Perfect

This year, you swore that by December 1st you’d have the perfect Christmas presents for all your friends and family bought, wrapped and stowed under your beautifully decorated tree. Unfortunately, as always, the endless Christmas carousel of festive lunches, champagne soirees and back-to-back parties has got in the way a little, and the tree is nowhere to be found, let alone the presents… If the very thought of doing a mad mall dash has you reaching for the mulled wine, fear not, luckily the DSTS Gift Fairy has just fluttered back into town and let us in on her top picks for everyone on your gift list. Best of all, each and every item is available online, just a click of your mouse away, and will be winging its way to your favourite people quicker than you can say ‘piece of Christmas cake’…

For the Glamazons:
All that glitters is gift gold for this uber-glam girl. Indulge her with a Glitter Globe Kotur clutch or a bundle of stylish snuggle in the shape of C by Christing C’s Elgin Fur vest. Stuff her stocking with the Julie Hewett Perfect Red Lip Kit - all she’ll need for a va va voom Christmas pout, just add mistletoe…

For the Fashion Fabulous:
She’s Vogue personified so gift her something fashion with a capital F.  Help her show her fashion allegiances with an LPD New York sweatshirt or dress things up with a pair of classic sparkly Choos. If she likes her chic with a side of eco, what better than the handmade fist necklace from the ever-awesome A Boy Named Sue?


For the Ladies who Luxe:
This is one lady who likes to walk on the opulent side. Spoil her with a softer than soft cashmere wrap or a gilded skincare set from Tatcha, which will have her glowing all winter long. Alternatively give her the Aromatherapy Associates deep relax night time ritual, a present which guarantees the most indulgent gift of all – the perfect night’s sleep…

For the Global Nomads:
She’s circled the globe more times this year than most people do in a lifetime. Inspire yet more wanderlust with the New York Times’ 36 Hours Asia & Oceana or ensure she’ll be kittenish on her next long haul flight with the Charlotte Olympia Cat Nap Satin Travel Set. Last but not least, because she’s never happier than when lounging by a pool, kit her out with the ultimate black one-piece from Itsie Bitsie.

For the Hosts with the Most:
Fill their home with the scent of warm winter fires, first snowfalls and woodsy pines no matter what the weather with Cochine’s Juniper and Ginger candles. Ensure their table is dressed to perfection with The Silk Flower Company’s Caledonian Centrepiece, and the fun keeps going all night long with Worldly Wise The Globetrotters Quiz Game.

For the Techies:
He’s an out and out gadget addict, so make sure there’s something suitably high-tech with his name on it under the tree. If his tablet is virtually joined to his fingertips, lighten his load with a brand new featherweight iPad Air. Alternatively, amp up his computer’s audio with a set of Bowers & Wilkins MM-1 Computer Speakers or give his desk a futuristic edge with the Virtual Laser Keyboard.

For the Dapper Gents:
Smooth and stylish with old-school manners and a hint of James Bond about him, the Monocle Guide to Better Living will be right up his street. If he’s a little more Casino Royale, perhaps a set of Alexander Wang Playing Cards would be more his scene. Stuff his stocking with the Dr Harris Arlington Kit to ensure he starts off 2014 impeccably groomed.

For the Too Cool for School:
He’s about six steps ahead of the rest of us when it comes to all things cutting edge and cool. Give him a hit of retro cool with The Impossible Project Instant Lab, which turns your iPhone photos into Polaroid prints in seconds. Add some awesome to his wardrobe with a Maison Labiche tee or indulge his love of the movies with a Federico Babina Architecture in Film print.

For the Cool Kids:
Pick up DCI Safari Stix chopstick holders, the perfect stocking stuffers for your little globetrotters, or build a beautiful holiday hamper that would make any little elf smile with Baobae’s customized gift service. Even Santa won’t hear them tiptoeing around on Christmas morning in Shanghai Tang’s silk baby shoes.

The perfect presents await!
