A rich nectarine fruit character and lingering toasty vanilla notes make this Veuve Clicquot Brut Ponsardin a popular classic. Bearing the famous ‘Clicquot Yellow’ label, this bottle is housed in a signature arrow gift tin, complete with a glittering font to mark the occasion. Once again, go the extra mile by personalising it with your hometown, a special city or the name of your favourite person for a gift to treasure long after the bubbles have popped.

This super versatile “Amelia” bag from FatFace is made from soft, supple leather, this shoulder bag comes in a slouchy shape with tonnes of pockets inside and out. The buckle fastening details are a stylish finishing touch, while the cotton lining ensures it’s strong on the inside. Wear it from on a weekend walk with the dog to a festive night out with friends.

This is what is known as a key winter piece, this fully lined wrap style coat from Jigsaw is designed with a narrow slim fit and self tie belt. Featuring two large patch pockets and a revere collar. Looks equally as good over a flowy dress or with jeans and a knit.

Smythson’s ‘Wafer’ notebook is a scaled-down version of the label’s signature ‘Panama’ jotter – so it’s perfect for stashing into your bag. Handmade in the UK, it’s constructed from metallic textured-leather to match the gilt-edged featherweight pages and has a grosgrain ribbon to keep track of recent entries. The #winning lettering stamping at the front makes it a great congratulatory gift.

OK not another one for your Mum or Gran, but this Lauren Ralph Lauren Satin and lace PJ set makes for the perfect gift for the one you love. Also, just putting it out there, maybe not suitable to be unwrapped in front of the outlaws, or potential ones.
