When it comes to finding the most stylish gifts this season, we’ve rounded up the best of the best and wrapped them up neatly for you in our Christmas Gift Guide 2017. From the luxurious to the novel, view our hand-picked selection below and start ticking some names off your list (or send some not so subtle hints).
Expect to find Ganni on every style maven’s Santa list this year as this Danish brand has become a cult hit. Their line of wrap style dresses are not only incredibly flattering but they’re also instant sellouts and come with an affordable price tag for a designer label. Pick up one of these for every woman on your list.

A truly luxurious, never-to-be-forgotten gift, the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer is for that someone special; someone who takes pride in their appearance and revels in the getting ready process. With its futuristic design, the Supersonic hair dryer looks and sounds completely different from a traditional hair dryer. It will never subject your hair to extreme heat and will blow (excuse the pun) their mind when they find it under the Christmas tree.
Special Edition Black and Purple Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer with black box, €399.99
Allow them to relax in luxury this holiday season in The White Company’s irresistibly cosy dressing gown (or housecoat, if you will). This sumptuous cotton robe is a classic, not to mention unisex so it’s the perfect gift for any man or woman who deserves a bit of “me time” this Christmas.

The most practical gift you could buy this Christmas, a cashmere beanie won’t disappoint, especially not in this standout shade of cobalt. Small enough to fill a stocking and premium enough to be a standalone gift, one size fits all.

For the avid fashion and photography fans, Annie Leibovitz’s latest book is a truly special gift.
