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.
