One of the biggest challenges of the festive season is finding a gift that will really mean something. This can be particularly challenging when searching for a luxury Christmas gift for your wife. Help is at hand, however, as our TRULY tastemakers have a number of suggestions fit for ladies of any taste.
Cause a stir for your wife with an indulgent martini evening at the five-star Flemings Mayfair hotel bar. The stylish lounge here is the perfect setting for the famous beverage, shaken or stirred – your pick, to be paired with delightful canapés.
For a larger variety of cocktails, head to the very exclusive Purple Bar. Places on the guest list here are normally very hard to come by, but we have a way in… For those after even more of the showmanship, Oskar Kinberg’s eponymous Oskar’s Bar features a number of award-winning cocktails.
For Spa Lovers
A day spent at the Corinthia’s spa in the heart of London is one not easily forgotten. It’s little wonder that the location was named ‘Europe’s Best Spa’ by the Sunday Times, when you factor in the world-class therapies and cutting-edge facilities. The glass encased amphitheatre sauna, for example, gives 360 degree views over the entire thermal floor.
At the COMO Shambhala spa, it sometimes feels like you’re a million miles away from the centre of one of the world’s biggest metropolises. That’s misleading, though, as the massage therapies here take place atop Park Lane. The signature blended oils gently rejuvenate the body to leave it feeling fully refreshed.
Lunch at the London outpost of Joël Robuchon, the chef with the most Michelin stars in the world, is a Christmas gift with which you can’t really go wrong. The flavours here are immaculate, while some might be surprised to learn Robuchon’s speciality is actually none other than mashed potato. Be sure to try it if it features on the menu.
Meanwhile, a full-blown tasting menu can be enjoyed at the perhaps unlikely destination of an Indian restaurant. Rasoi offer an innovative take on ancient Indian culinary traditions, which earned the restaurant a lucrative Michelin star.
