There are two types of Christmas gift shoppers: the kind who have everything bought and wrapped by the first week of November or those who leave it until the last minute and spend Christmas Eve placing said presents into gift bags. Neither is right or wrong, but if there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s this: In the frenzy of dreaming up perfect gifts for others, it’s perfectly acceptable to play fantasy with the gifts you’d like to receive, too. And team Who What Wear has certainly been indulging in virtual window shopping of the highest luxury of late.
Now, we know the true meaning of Christmas goes way beyond shopping; it’s about being thankful for what you have, showing compassion for others and spending time with our nearest and dearest. But that doesn’t mean we can’t indulge ourselves by compiling a “money’s no object” Christmas list. We let our fashion fantasies run wild, and the result is an edit of luxury Christmas gifts for her that are so incredibly beautiful that it’s hard to believe they even exist. Whether you use this as inspiration for adding to your own lists, or there’s a special someone out there who you know deserves to be throughly spoilt this year, we’re sure you’ll find something that meets perfection in this edit below. From the chicest of coats and the most covetable of bags, all the way to premium skincare and elevated homeware, there’s not a women I know who wouldn’t swoon opening one of these gifts. Keep scrolling below to live vicariously through our assortment of high-end treats.
