CHRISTMAS IS COMING – LET US INSPIRE YOU WITH A CURATED SELECTION OF TRULY SPECIAL GIFTS TO HELP KICK OFF YOUR CHRISTMAS SHOPPING

Choosing a gift for a loved one can be a tricky business. As well as weighing up their interests, wants and needs, you need to think about your own budget. This year, to make things easier for you, we’ve created a special edit of exceptional gifts for all the important people in your life. In other words, we’ve done the hard work for you.

‘Choosing the perfect Christmas gift can be a high-stakes business,’ says Dan Cooper, Partner and Buyer, Christmas. ‘To lighten the load, we’ve curated the most covetable, beautiful and innovative gifts that money can buy. We call them gifts of wonder.’

The gifts of wonder edit is a selection of 200 products – simply look out for items highlighted ‘gifts of wonder’ on our website. We’ve selected 40 of our favourite below. We hope that Christmas shopping just got a little easier.

With a multitude of interests and tastes, dads, husbands, brothers and sons are not always the easiest recipients to buy for.

GIFTS FOR KIDS

In an age where children often have it all, how do you wow and delight them on Christmas morning? We all know that showering them with dozens of meaningless gifts isn’t the route to happiness, so it’s important to choose something special that will stand the test of time and stay on their play list when the sparkle of Christmas has faded. Our special selection for gifts of wonder includes a classic Brio train set, our bestselling wooden block baby walker and an irresistibly squishy Jellycat octopus they’ll want to keep on cuddling. And yes, for older kids, we’ve got the most popular games consoles covered, including the Xbox One S and the Nintendo Switch.

Satisfy budding builders, artists, chefs and train drivers with our fun selection of gifts for the youngest members of the family
