Best of British Gifts For Christmas 2018

The season of goodwill is upon us. If, like me, you have a tendency to overthink gift-buying to the point where every drop of festive joy is sapped from the experience, then this one is for you. A selection of beautifully unique & thoughtful gifts, made by independent British brands.


By Mala

A collection of concentrated pure perfume oils, handmade by Mala. A perfect gift for the scent-obsessor, these luxurious unisex fragrances contain the finest natural ingredients, from oud to jasmine to saffron. Vegan, cruelty free & long lasting, there is no need to re-apply Mala’s perfumes throughout the day as the scent will keep working with your body heat.


Beautifully made, stylish & functional a PedalShed saddle cover is a winning gift for the biking pro, Sunday cyclist or city commuter. Based in London, Katherine Pedersen perfectly unites thoughtful Scandi design with gorgeous fabrics, from tweeds to leather to upcycled textiles. There’s little wonder this collection is the work of a Dane! Created to fit many different saddle shapes, treat the cyclist in your life to a dry, comfortable & stylish ride this Christmas.


Sara Tiara

A Sara Tiara headpiece is a gift for the ethereal soul in your life, who brings a little magic with them wherever they go. Sara & her team of milliners create each masterpiece from feathers, beads, shells & vintage fabrics in their Poole atelier. Visit Sara’s beautiful store in the beating heart of Portobello’s antique market & find ‘The One’ among her collection of one-of-a-kind designs.


Casa de L’Oil

Your resident foodie will love the work of Simone & Tim from Casa de L’Oil. Based in Suffolk & Southern Catalonia the couple produce outstanding olive oils from their Catalonia olive grove.

The ideal habitat for olive trees is said to require sun, stone, drought, silence and solitude.

It’s clear from the taste that Casa de L’Oil have found this habitat for their olives. Flavoured with a beautiful selection of fresh ingredients, including Spanish oranges & wild herbs, their Gift Selection will make a welcomed addition to any food-lover’s kitchen.
