Become A Christmas Gifting Pro With Le Mill
Every year, in between mulled wine, mince pies and the annual holiday office party, the slightly high-pressure gesture of holiday gift giving is inevitable. Not to add pressure, but we've always felt that how you approach gift giving says a lot about you, revealing how you view and value your nearest and dearest. A great gift is one that has an element of surprise and delight – and is often something the recipient covets but never expected to receive.
As the holiday season kicks off, we've thought ahead and got you covered with help from Le Mill co-founders Julie Leymarie and Cecilia M Parikh. Their recommendations are perfect to substitute for your loved ones – and the best bit? Le Mill is a one-stop destination to get them all!
Presenting The Perfect Gifts For …
The Men In Your Life
CECILIA: Anything from Kardo. The subtlety in this menswear line makes it a hidden gem.
JULIE: Agreed! A travel bag from Kardo.
The Dinner Party Hostess
CECILIA:A box of tea from No.3 Clive Road, specifically the masala tea.
JULIE:I would home deliver a Libellule bouquet before dinner to the hostess' house.
Your Sister (In Law) or Best Girlfriend
CECILIA:A pair of Isabel Marant military boots for my best friend. It helps that I know her size!
JULIE:Super cool culottes from Dries Van Noten.
Your Mother (In Law)
CECILIA: The Alexander McQueen poppy cage clutch is classic but distinct.
JULIE: An embroidered Janavi shawl.
CECILIA: Well, that's Julie, so a classic pussy bow playsuit from Stella McCartney.
JULIE: Well, that's Cece, and I can't afford her dream earrings from Gem Palace 🙂 I would pick the white ruffle blouse by Alexander McQueen.
And most important – Yourself!
CECILIA: A pair of thick gold hoops from Gem Palace.
JULIE: A Mary Katrantzou bag. I need a small, cool cross body bag to be able to carry my baby at the same time!
