Claire Rubinstein selects five items that sophisticated ladies will crave this Christmas
Multi-session package at 1Rebel
Sweating 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
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
As 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
Small 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
Fly 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.

Fun choices! I’m a bit old for the gym but I love Donna Ida myself too.
