Five of the Best: Christmas gifts for her

Claire Rubinstein selects five items that sophisticated ladies will crave this Christmas

 

Multi-session package at 1Rebel

Five of the Best: Christmas gifts for herSweating in the dark with a group of strangers… Yes please! Book a session at 1Rebel – whose mantra is “We don’t spin, We ride” – and experience highly intense fitness sessions against a backdrop of bespoke playlists by internationally acclaimed DJs and rockstar instructors. They’ve taken London by storm and you can either “kick ass” and reshape in a group or privatize your pain with a personal programme. GQ don’t call this “The King of Gyms” for nothing.

 

Festive Chelsea blowdry at Vos

Five of the Best: Christmas gifts for herIf the mere thought of a workout leaves you looking like you’ve just endured a wild weekend with Bear Grylls, then it’s time to cool down and move on to grooming. For the perfect festive Chelsea blowdry, head to Vos on the Kings Road where you’ll get lots of va va voom volume and perfect waves that will see you through the party season in style.

 

Whilst we’re on the subject, I have to include a visit to Waggin’ Tails Pet Boutique & Spa where my standard poodle, Marcel, leaves feeling fresh, fluffy and smelling divine.

 

Jeans from Donna Ida

Five of the Best: Christmas gifts for herAs a child of the 70s, my denim obsession shows no signs of waning and my favourite has to be Donna Ida denim. It’s the ultimate designer denim destination with boutiques in Chelsea and Belgravia curated by the ‘Queen of Jeans’ – as Donna Ida herself is known. Great fitting and style advice is offered as well as a superb range of clothing and accessories, including my latest jewellery favourites from True Rocks Ibiza.

 

Mini Countryman Park Lane SD ALL4

Five of the Best: Christmas gifts for herSmall is the new big and though its too large to fit into a Christmas stocking, this £26,865 stunner is certainly spacious enough to carry anyone’s holiday shopping.

 

First class British Airways flight to Los Angeles

Five of the Best: Christmas gifts for herFly the flag and escape the grey monotony of London for light and colour in California. I love BA and nothing beats their service; the height of good taste.
