Marks & Spencer is also the perfect place to find this season’s athleisure and go-to bright jumpers. 

For the teenagers in your life, head to Claire’s and Accessorize has inspired finds for the teenagers in your life: from mini bags to stackable jewellery. Create photos of fun matching pyjamas on Christmas Eve for the whole family at Next and Marks & Spencer alongside sheepskin slippers (perfect for trying to spot Santa in the evening sky). 

For him, discover tailored and smart looks from Ted Baker at Fenwick or more laidback styles at Gas Station and Superdry. Outdoorsy type? Trespass has weatherproof jackets, walking boots and stylish backpacks. For shoes, Ugg’s Classic Ultra Mini Boots are topping the most-wanted lists at Office along with Veja’s sustainable trainers.

Thinking of something truly luxurious? Royal Victoria Place is home to leading luxury jewellery and watch stores.

Step in store and discover tactile, fragranced and gorgeously packed presents for friends, family and teens. Top of wishlists this year are fragrances by Chanel and Dior and make-up sets from No 17, Maybelline and Benefit (head to Boots and The Perfume Shop).

L’Occitane’s festively wrapped gifts inspired by Provencal almonds and lavender look gorgeous under the tree while Mac’s special edition beauty for Christmas includes its cult Ruby Woo lipstick shade set, Eye Love Surprises Make-Up Palette and Stacks On Stacks Mascara duo.
