Christmas Gifts For Your Wife
Tea at the Ritz
Bring on the Ritz for Christmas! An indulgent high tea is a real treat, and the Ritz is one of the most iconic hotels in London. How your wife just how sweet you think she is with a high tea in this majestic establishment.
A Beautiful Brooch
The end-of-year festivities are all about indulgence. The old year is just about done and dusted, and a new one is about to begin. We’re allowed to have fun for the sake of fun and to enjoy beauty for the sake of beauty. One of the best Christmas gifts for wife is a luxurious embellishment for her wardrobe. Add a touch of exquisite beauty to her outfits by giving her the gift of a Chanel brooch set with pearls and crystal.
Design Her Own Handbag
If your wife has a flair for fashion, let her express her uniqueness by designing and making her own handbag with Rosanna Clare. Whether a tote or a clutch, it’s sure to be the envy of her friends. Plus, she’ll think of you every time she uses it.
Winter imagery abounds at Christmastime. The beauty of snowy landscapes, icicles, and snowflakes is undeniable, and it offers inspiration for Christmas gifts for wives. What better way to express that inspiration than by covering her with diamonds? If you can’t quite manage diamonds to get from head to toe, you may want to consider this stunning Panthère de Cartier ring instead.
Tour Of Kew Gardens
Take some time out with your wife and gift her with an experience of beauty. Join her for a tour of Kew Gardens, and appreciate her as the most beautiful flower among flowers. You can share your impressions of the Royal Botanic Gardens over a meal in a Michelin-starred restaurant after the tour.
Necklace With A Difference
The woman in your life is a multi-faceted human being, and you’ve no doubt seen her as bright as day and as dark as night. Honour her with the Constellation of Life pendant by Bleeker & Prince. The round black onyx pendant inlaid with gold and diamonds is fit for the queen that she is. Alternatively, consider Christopher Thompson Royds’ stunning gold and diamond Buttercup Necklace.
According to the Christmas story, two of the three gifts that the Magi presented to baby Jesus and his mother were frankincense and myrrh. Let their fragrant offerings inspire your Christmas gift for your wife. Indulge her with a niche fragrance from one of the most highly regarded perfume houses, Serge Lutens. We recommend Ambre Sultan, which includes notes of myrrh, sandalwood, and vanilla, among others.
Night at the Theatre
Love a little bit of culture at Christmas? Give your wife the gift of a luxury theatre evening in London’s West End. She’ll be treated to Michelin star dining beforehand, then enjoy premium tickets at a show of her choosing. For any woman that loves the arts, this is a dream gift experience she won’t forget in a hurry.
A Royal Day Out
Royalists are always falling over themselves to get an inside glimpse of Buckingham Palace. A thoughtful Christmas gift for your wife who loves Wills, Kate, and the monarchy, a tour of the Queen’s Gallery at the palace is just about perfect. Add a Michelin star lunch to the mix and you’ve got the ideal package.
A Gorgeously Framed Mirror
Your wife no doubt wants to know that she’s looking her best before she steps out, whether its for work or for play. Your gift of a mirror with a gorgeous frame will not only look good, it also will give her the affirmation that she’s about to go out and slay. We adore this antique silver full-length mirror from Primrose & Plumb.
If you and your wife enjoy skiing trips around Christmastime, why not spoil her with designer skiwear? An item from Bogner will keep her looking stylish on the slopes. We think the Sassy down ski jacket in red would make a thoughtful Christmas gift for a wife.
If your wife loves cosmetics a make-up masterclass will be right up her alley. She can enjoy learning new techniques and be painted by the pros. She’ll love exploring a new look and will feel gorgeous too.
Cause a stir for your wife with an indulgent martini evening at the luxurious Donovan Bar at Brown’s Hotel. The stylish lounge here is the perfect setting for the famous beverage, shaken or stirred – your pick, to be paired with delightful canapés.
If your lady loves being behind the lens, or she’s a selfie pro, a photography class will take her talents to new heights. Perfect for a wife with an artistic side, she can embrace her inner Annie Leibovitz and learn all about the craft from a master.
A Hybrid Smartwatch
For the woman who loves tech but isn’t keen to give up the style and charm of an analogue watch in favour of a smartwatch, a hybrid smartwatch is the perfect option. If that’s where the woman in your life is at, Fossil’s HR Charter is one of the best Christmas gifts for wife. It boasts an attractive analogue body as well as high-tech features.
Crystal Wine Decanter
If she’s a wine lover, a crystal decanter could be the best Christmas gift for your wife. It’s enough to add a touch of glamour to any occasion, whether it’s a candlelit dinner with you, a dinner party with friends, or a glass of wine after a long day at the office.
An Indulgent Spa Day
Christmastime can often be a period of immense stress at the end of the year. If your wife could do with some pampering, give her the gift of a spa day. 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.
Framed Family Photos
So much of what we do is online and so many photos we take we never see again. Change this by giving your wife a selection of framed prints for Christmas. A truly special gift that will last, she’ll love being able to see her favourite memories displayed in elegant frames. We love Papier’s range, and you can select the style, shades and size of prints that perfectly showcase your photographs.
Lunch With Wine Pairing
If she loves eating out and trying new taste sensations, a thoughtful gift is lunch at a top restaurant, complete with wine pairing. She’s sure to love the four-course tasting menu at Cigalon, a renowned eatery in Holborn, London.
Is your wife for a movie buff who loves the big screen? How about a luxurious cinema experience for her this festive season? The Soho Hotel’s private screening rooms come with spacious leather seats. She and her plus one will also be able to enjoy a delicious lunch, dinner or afternoon tea at the hotel’s restaurant.
Dinner with a View
Dinner at the Galvin La Chapelle, one of the most exclusive Michelin star restaurants in London, is a Christmas gift with which you can’t really go wrong. The flavours here are immaculate, while the epic converted chapel interior is sure to take your breath away. If your wife is a foodie give her the gift of a meal she won’t forget!
Whether these Christmas gifts for wives are what you fill her stocking with, or you use them as inspiration, we can guarantee that she’ll love whatever you pick.
