Miu Miu Nuit: sequins, pearls and party girls

At 40 New Bond Street, shopping never looked so good. The marble-clad home to Celine’s brand-new flagship store has been meticulously crafted and curated by creative director Hedi Slimane. The seriously seductive space is stocked full of rare art, books and vintage furniture, and boasts intimate spaces, clandestine fitting rooms and, of course, the latest mens and womenswear collections alongside the Celine Haute Parfumerie line (we can attest, it smells good). And to wet your whistle, Celine are offering a range of bags exclusive to the store (have a sneak peak here). So revel in the art, read a book, lounge on an antique and max out your credit card: this is a store devoted to its customer. Aka, you lot. Enjoy.

Kit out your loved one’s gaff with one of many knick-knacks on offer this season. There are benefits to gifting homeware, you see. It can be wonderfully useful, terrifically useless, and those on the receiving end will be reminded of you morning, noon and night while traipsing around their house. Win win! But there’s no need to go for a crappy vase or A-Z bookends – not when you take notes from this gift guide, anyway. We’ve got practical stuff like ashtrays, slippers and Snoopy cups, a ton of odd trinkets, pillows and fluffy robes. IKEA? Forgeddit.

A book says a thousand words, and whether you’re shopping for fanatics or those in need of a handsome bookshelf spruce-up, retreating from the festive madness will be made that much sweeter with this handy guide to the best literary gifts. From hilarious nonfiction essays and niche independent titles to zines, proper escapism and bonafide witchcraft, there’s something here for everyone.

Nothing says I give a shit like gifting your loved ones with art. It’s thoughtful, cool and will have you looking hyper cultured. And when Christmas Day gets too much (nan’s pissed, turkey was crap, dad’s asleep), retreat to a corner of the house and immerse yourself in one of many photobooks from great independent bookstores like Climax or Claire de Rouen, or stare longingly at your stellar new print ’til your eyes bleed, or shock your granddad with Ami Evelyn Hughes’ filthy hot GUT magazine. Merry Christmas!
