Brrrr... it’s windy outside, the nights have drawn in and there are just three weeks to Christmas. If you’re looking for present ideas we’re here to help. We’ve done a rustle around the Heathcote & Ivory office to find out what some of us at have in store for our loved ones. Mum, sister, grandma, dad, other half, mother-in-law and more, read on for some great gift ideas.
ESTHER – Head of Operations
MOTHER-IN-LAW - My mother-in-law loves Morris & Co., so I’d choose the Morris & Co Strawberry Thief Velvet Clutch Bag. It’s such a classy prezzy and she will think I have spent more on her than I have! If I’m feeling really generous and want to get into her good books, I would also buy her the Morris & Co Velvet Eye Mask.
MY STEP-DAUGHTERS – it’s got to be the Cath Kidston Stanley Toiletry Gift Set and something from the Cath Kidston Alpacas collection. They’re sooooooo cute and fun.
MY BEST FRIEND – Vintage & Co Baubles & Belles. Anything, everything, all of it! It so reminds me of the TV series Bewitched. It makes me smile.
RACHEL – NPD Assistant
MUM – Morris & Co Strawberry Thief Velvet Clutch – This clutch is sophisticated, beautiful and the velvet makes it a very luxurious gift. My mum loves socialising, so it’s a perfect accessory for her evenings out with friends, or for organising her handbag for weekend getaways.
MY BEST FRIEND - Salsa Silks Bathing Flowers – they’re a fun and colourful gift that looks great - perfect for an artistic friend who enjoys pampering and having beautiful things in her home. They also smell amazing!
MICHELLE – Senior Designer
MUM – I would give my mum a Morris & Co. Hand Care Set or the Morris & Co. Advent Calendar.
SISTER – My sister would love a Sara Miller Hand Care Duo or Body Soufflé.
ANJALI – Executive Assistant
MY FIANCÉ - Morris & Co. Refined Gentleman Wash Bag and the Travel Grooming Set. My fiancé travels a lot for work and plays football every weekend. So, the wash bag would be ideal for his travel necessities. It’s beautifully embossed giving it a luxurious feel. He’d love it. The travel grooming set is perfect as it has all the essentials packed into one gift box ready for his Saturday football and his travelling. Easy for me to wrap and smells amazing.
FUTURE MOTHER-IN-LAW – Vintage & Co Baubles & Belles Bath Fizzers for Belles and Nailcare Set. The festive period is very busy for her as my fiancé’s family is large, so she is cooking constantly. I think this gift would be perfect for her as she can indulge over the Christmas week in a nice relaxing bath. And extra bonus, this give is pre-wrapped beautifully, so nothing for me to do!
And the nail care set because she always maintains her nails and they are always well manicured. The festive packaging makes this the ideal Christmas gift for her, and as it’s also part of the Baubles & Belles range it’ll be a beautiful collection for her to open on Christmas day.
LYNNE – Senior Product Manager
DAD – He loves travel, flying and wine tasting – he likes the finer things in life and has a real sense of adventure. I’d give him the Morris & Co. Refined Gentleman Beard Duo. Since he has discovered that the modern man can take pride in using creams, lotions and potions he’s really taken to it. The fragrance is subtle and fresh, and the formulations have lovely extracts of Borage, Juniper and Willow Bark. I think it would be a great introduction for him to beard care.
MOTHER-IN-LAW – She is 64 going on 25 – she loves fashion and the latest trends and is really into bright colours. I would give her the Navy Sara Miller Cosmetic Bag. It is just such a beautiful classic design and palette, and I can see it working perfectly on her dressing table. She would love it to keep all her make-up and skincare essentials in.
