Selfridges’ Destination Christmas
It may be a little too soon, but it can’t be helped. The sight of Christmas adverts, decorations, iconic store windows and general festiveness makes us want to shop. A lot.
Selfridges has launched its much-lauded Christmas shop as well as revealing is new window concepts and the must-have gifts for 2013.
There is an overarching sense of refinement within the men’s gifting edit this year; products are clean, classic and, best of all, sure-fire winners for any man in your life.
In true Selfridges style, the edit’s range covers all budgets. Simple gift sets from the likes of Clinique and Selfridges’ in-house design team are available for around £30-50, whilst a Mulberry iPad sleeve (£165), Tateossian cuff links (£109) and a Tag Heuer watch (£1,250) are just some of the gifts that cater to those who appreciate the finer things in life.
Here we pick out some of the key gifts from Selfridges’ edit…
