Struggling for gift ideas? Citywealth has compiled the luxury edit of gifts to impress even the most difficult to please. 

For him.

Treat him to a stunning Alexandra Llewellyn backgammon board such as The Zodiac (£18,000). Handcrafted in the UK using sustainable wood and traditional woodworking techniques such as dovetail drawers, marquetry inlay and hand-finishing, the Zodiac board is a timeless objet d’art bringing to life the true art of marquetry, taking luxury gaming to the next level with a break from tradition by introducing a round board.

For her.

From the luxury travel goods brand STOW creator of the Travel Tech Case, as seen carried by HRH The Duchess of Sussex, is the newly launched Namib Leather Belt Bag. The Namib Leather Belt Bag (from £395) has an on-trend box shaped silhouette, made from luxurious soft leather and can be worn over the shoulder, around the waist or across the body. STOW’s multi-pocket storage solution is built into the main body of the bag – six pockets can home bank or ID cards whilst cash or a mobile phone can be stowed in the two larger pockets, freeing up space in the main area of the bag for travel essentials whilst meaning your bulky purse can be left at home.

For the discerning drinker.

Celebrate the season with a bottle of Glenfiddich Grand Cru (£220). This single malt whisky has a unique expression matured for 23 years in American and European oak casks and elegantly finished in rare French Cuvée casks for up to 6 months. It’s the exclusive marriage of the finest flavours from Scotland and France.

For the food lover.

Harrods presents The Sloane hamper (£200). Filled with everything you need for when guests drop by to escape the cold December days, The Sloane hamper celebrates the store’s rich history with a selection of traditional delicacies from the Harrods Food Halls. Tucked inside this wicker treasure trove, you’ll find a whole host of delicious indulgences – from biscuits to hot drinks, and pantry essentials including jams and dried pasta. Or if you are looking for something a little more bespoke, contact Corporate Service at Harrods to discuss your requirements and let them help you impress your clients with the perfect gift.
