The 24 Luxury Items I’d Recommend for a Thoughtful Forever Gift

The 24 Luxury Items I’d Recommend for a Thoughtful Forever Gift

As I write this, the streets are glistening with twinkling lights and the first few chocolates have found their way out of my advent calendar, signifying that the festive countdown has officially begun. But whilst I’d love to say my gifts are already delivered, wrapped and tucked safely under the tree, in reality, with the whirl of cocktail parties, work celebrations and planning a Christmas-dinner food shop, my gifting list still sits incomplete. And I’m guessing I’m not the only one, which is why I spent an entire day scouring through the very best gifting options around to find thoughtful, useful and chic items loved ones will genuinely appreciate this Christmas and beyond. Naturally, they’re all sourced from NET-A-PORTER

Whether you’re shopping for the festive season or have other present-giving opportunities like weddings and birthdays coming up in your calendar, NET-A-PORTER always hits the mark for luxury gifting. As a hub of both beloved designers and new names to know, the retailer never misses on high-quality styles to be treasured for a lifetime. From workwear to partywear and forever bags to statement shoes, NET-A-PORTER’s sleek edits cover all bases, with refined offerings across every category. And this year’s gifting selection is a wonder in itself. 

There’s a particular joy in finding a perfect gift for someone special, wrapping it up and hiding it away until the time comes to present your find and watch their eyes light up. For some, it will be a delicate piece of jewellery that becomes part of their daily stack, treasured forever. For others, it may be a handbag they’ve been eyeing up for months that becomes a commute companion or a night-out plus one. Beauty lovers can indulge in festive gift sets galore, offering a chance to stock up on their most loved products or explore the full range of a new favourite brand. What about those who ask for nothing? Consider upgrading their everyday essentials by gifting them something like a timeless camel coat or a classic leather belt.

As ever, NET-A-PORTER has everyone covered, with beautiful designer plates for the dinner party host and indulgent candles for those who deserve a self-care moment. Whoever is lucky enough to be on your gifting list, there’s something for them in this sleek edit.
