Last-minute presents for the fashion-forward people in your life

What will your loved ones find under the tree?

Christmas is just days away, and it’s all hands on deck to finalize those dinner plans, get the tree up and make sure everything is sparkling clean and decked in cheer for the big day.

And of course, shopping for presents has to fit in somewhere, too – but why not take it online?

It’s not just much easier to shop because it spares you from queuing up for an hour to pay, you’ll also get it delivered straight to your door; not to mention that, while comfortably lounging on your sofa, it’s also lots easier to find inspiration.

We all want to give something special, something that’ll make the person smile (and us all warm and fuzzy inside!), so together with Psyche we have assembled some of the most special gifts sure to dazzle your loved ones – and all without knowing their clothing sizes!

The Lulu Guinness Lipstick Perspex Clutch Bag is possibly one of the most out there designs, but just the perfect gift for a fun-loving woman (or man, if he is so inclined) in your life.

Sure to turn eyes, the clutch is a key design – not just because a red lipstick print is part of the brand’s identity – and a truly timeless piece.

If she’s not for eccentric designs, the Michael Kors Jet Set Large Pocket Tote Bag is an updated version of the brand’s best-known model, made from high-quality saffiano leather.

Classic and low-key, it looks good with everything and matches every occasion, from a day at the office to a night about town – and it has enough space to fit everything you need in.

And for the man in your life – or a woman looking for a big bag holding everything you could possibly need – the Barbour Tweed Explorer Holdall is just the right thing.

Slung over a shoulder or carried in your hands, its small-check tweed adds a nice touch, making the bag look like a more sophisticated and stylish version of a practical design.

Adding some fun into the mix is the Paul Smith Accessories Billfold Mini Wallet, made from soft leather and offering enough space for all your important cards, too.

Open up the simple black exterior to reveal a color- and playful interior, at the heart of which the iconic Mini Cooper features next to a vibrant striped design – perfect for someone who likes their accessories to be a mix of serious and fun.

Scarves and hats are also popular choices, but why not add a pair of nice leather gloves into the mix?

For those cold days, the Barbour Leather Utility Gloves will keep your dad’s/brother’s/partner’s/friend’s hands nice and warm.

Made from supple leather, they also feature a stunningly soft faux fur lining, and a buckle and press stud allow adjustment to fit a number of hands.

Smaller (and maybe daintier) female hands will appreciate the Barbour Squadron Long Length Leather Gloves all the way into spring.

Featuring a military design, they are still streamlined and elegant and will match any outfit, from smart-casual to some more festive ensembles – not to mention they’re so versatile they’ll go with every kind of jacket or coat.

And of course, you cannot forget scarves – whether they’re fluffy and warm or serve a more decorative purpose, they can be a right hit at Christmas.

Made from soft silk, the Knightsbridge Polka Dot Silk Scarf adds a nice finishing touch to everything – from casual jeans-and-t-shirt-days to a full suit.

White polka dots set off against a deep, shiny burgundy add a lively detail to every outfit, but without looking tacky or over the top.

Featuring one of the world’s best-loved cities, the Joules Bloomfield London Print Silk Scarf turns the British capital into a beautiful accessory.

Depicting all the famous sights – from red buses and black cabs to marching guards and St Paul’s Cathedral – it’s crafted from soft silk and hand printed to give it a truly unique feel.
