Christmas spirit

From high-tech cameras to sleek cocktail shakers, The Royal Exchange's sophisticated selection of accessories offers something to delight everyone this Christmas

04 December, 2018

The festive months bring much excitement, but choosing gifts for family and friends can be a challenging endeavor. From picky partners to in-laws who appear to have everything, finding a special something that genuinely delights the recipient is no mean feat. Fortunately, whether you are looking for a thoughtful gift or just want to treat yourself to something special, The Royal Exchange is home to a refined range of festive accessories, guaranteed to please the most discerning of tastes.

For those with an eye for photography, a camera is a must for capturing special moments throughout the festive period. Leica’s C-Lux model is not only stunning to look at, available in colour options of light-gold or midnight blue, but inside it features a high-performance 20-megapixel sensor, and its 15x optical zoom enables exceptional close-up focus and clarity. It also conveniently sets up a wireless connection to a smartphone so images can be transferred effortlessly between the two.

If, however, you are looking to gift a timeless treasure that can be cherished forever, a beautifully crafted watch is a perfect choice. Montblanc’s Heritage Chronometrie Twincounter Date is a particularly refined timepiece for men, suitable for wearing every day, yet smart enough for special occasions, and the distinctive date function is indicated in a subdial, rather than the more traditional date aperture.

When it comes to keeping your friends entertained for hours, Georg Jensen has a playful yet elegant selection of cocktail sets sure to impress guests at any party. Then, for the finishing touches to any cocktail outfit, a pair of Cylinder Twister Royal Cable cufflinks from Tateossian are a suave addition for style-conscious men, and the Aurora Double Mixed Metal Link Earrings from Links of London will add subtle sparkle to any women’s evening ensemble. They’re a must for your Christmas shopping list, either as an indulgence for yourself or as an elegant gift for a special someone.

Discover all of the above gifts, plus many more, at The Royal Exchange’s exceptional collection of luxury boutiques.
