“I’m the Designer responsible for gifting at Radley London, so Wrapped Up Radley has been a long time in the making for me. I started sourcing inspiration for the collection in October last year and have loved every aspect of the design process; from creating the different characters to applying the finishing touches.
“I’m hoping to spend the period up in Scotland with my family – rules permitting! – but am getting a head start on present-buying just in case. Whether you’re in the research phase of your own personal Christmas list or looking for something special for the women in your life, my top picks might give you an idea or two.
“From new eco-conscious pieces to the latest home accessories – these are the Radley London gifts I can’t wait to give this Christmas.”
There’s nothing like a pair of festive socks to get me into the Christmas spirit. Crafted in a soft and stretchy cotton-nylon blend, this luxurious sock set features three limited edition designs and comes in its own keepsake, drawer-shaped box. I love the little lurex details and know my best friend will too. I’m tempted to treat myself to pair of our new Scottie Dog Socks – all the Radley and Friends designs are super cute.
I’ve had my eye on this bright multi-check scarf since I first saw the final outcome – it’s definitely going to be on my list this year. Crafted in a cosy mix of recycled and virgin polyester, it’s part of Radley Responsible; our range of products made using environmentally friendly materials and processes. I love the fringed edges and intricately embroidered logo too. This scarf’s perfect for keeping me warm in Scotland’s frosty weather.
I’m really hoping to get my sister or mum in our family Secret Santa this year – just because I know they’ll love our amazing new Finsbury Park bags. Every style is lightweight, versatile and crafted with sustainable materials – including recycled nylon, made from plastic bottles! The Tote Bag matches my sister’s taste whereas the Cross Body is perfect for my mum.
I think this year has reminded us all how important it is to look after both our minds and bodies. As a reminder to take care of themselves, I’m gifting this faux leather wellness journal to a few of my closest friends.
Across its pages, you can record positive notions – including goals for the day ahead and things that made you smile – and keep track of what keeps your body healthy, like your sleeping pattern and daily water intake. I know they’ll love all the little details (especially the gold foil embossing) and I’m sure they’ll appreciate its on-the-go size.
I can’t give my friends a journal without without a fancy new pen to write in it with. Beautifully presented in a Radley London gift box, this luxurious ballpoint pen is a delightful gift for those who have everything (and for forgetful friends too). Plus, its ink is refillable so they can treasure it forever.
I love this water bottle. The stainless steel design is not only beautiful but functional also; it keeps drinks ice cold for 24 hours and hot for 12. Plus, it features an advanced leak proof lid to stop any spillages from happening. I’m buying this one for myself to use all year round.
If, like me, you’re always on the go, you’ll appreciate having a compact mirror for make-up touch ups and last-minute hair checks. Decorated with our seasonal starry pattern, this handbag essential is expertly made with a faux-leather outer and foil embellishments. You won’t want to leave the house without it.
I’ve always loved the original Liverpool Street handbag, so I was thrilled when we began remastering it for Autumn Winter 2020. Liverpool Street 2.0 features the same triple compartment interior and detachable cross body strap, but its premium leather silhouette has been softened with elegantly rounded corners and moulded handles. It’s the style everyone in our London Design Studio wants!
For me, the best gifts are those with thought behind them. As with all Radley London handbags and accessories, every style on my list is expertly made with the ultimate blend of creative design, quality materials and immaculate craftsmanship.
