Five of the Best – Places to Buy Gifts

Marketeer Branka Virily selects five of the best places to buy gifts

Buying gifts can sometimes be a challenge.  Even if you know the type of gift you want, finding something that is exactly right can be difficult. Here we look at five of the best places to buy gifts.

 

Online

Flowers are a gift that is perfect for so many occasions, and many people are gifting trees as gifts, with fruit trees popular for their seasonal produce over the years. Red roses, symbolic of love and passion, have become a traditional gift for those choosing the right present for Valentine’s day, for example. However, since these blooms fade within a week, an eternity rose preserved at the peak of its natural beauty makes a stunning piece of home décor for you to enjoy for a lifetime.

 

With so many online stores, your gift options are almost limitless, though most offer support to help you find your best options. With free delivery on offer, online shopping also is a great idea if you are short of time or may not be with the person on the day of celebration.

 

Bookstores

Bookstores no longer just sell books they sell a lifestyle. For those who love to read, any gift that creates a contemporary library will be appreciated. This can include books in a quilted leather slipcase from Chanel, large glossy coffee-table books or quality scented candles to create a relaxed atmosphere as well as other objects d’art for the library.

 

Some luxury bookstores sell furniture, helping to keep the ambience and beauty of books in spite of the digital age. In St James’s, London, Assouline have a bookstore that also creates books that are as informational as they are beautiful works of art. These books have traditionally crafted hand-bound covers, stunning pictures that have been hand-tipped on luxuriously thick pages. Maison Assouline sell the highest quality books in the world.

 

Eccentric gift store

Eccentric gift stores offer wonderful gift ideas, great for those you may be struggling to find a gift for. Percy Bass in Walton Street, Chelsea is one such store, full of wonderful gift ideas, including desk trays and paper bins, behind which are a vast array of artists, craftsmen and dealers offering a diverse selection of gift ideas for even the most difficult person to buy for.

 

Percy Bass also offers handbags, purses and clutch bags from favoured brands for women. These act as a statement to any outfit in this season’s shades and shapes to suit every style. Eccentric gift stores are worth spending a little more time perusing so that you find exactly what you want.

 

The world’s most delightful corner shop

Perhaps the world’s most famous corner shop is Fortnum & Mason in St James’s, though Harrods in Knightsbridge may also claim that title. Over five floors, Fortnum’s offers original and luxurious gift ideas, from a crafted pebble-grain Italian leather wireless charging station through to their famous hampers of food and wine.

 

Whilst based in Piccadilly, London for 300 years, worldwide stockists for the company can be found in Australia, the United States, Canada, Mexico, Hong Kong, China, Japan, South Korea, Russia, France, Germany, Switzerland and Ireland.

 

Interior design studio

An interior design studio offers accessories and furniture that can be designed to suit an individual’s taste and style. If you are looking for something quintessentially British, David Linley in Belgravia has in-store exhibitions as well as interior design teams for something extra special. These designs are inventive, show meticulous attention to detail, ingenuity, creative spirit, eccentricity, sophistication, wit and charm. From a Union Jack cufflink box to a Trafalgar straight whisky tumbler, there are some beautiful items to consider.

 

Branka Virily is a marketeer with a passion for seeking out the very best luxury goods on the planet.
