Christmas presents anyone?

Here’s a starter for your Christmas present buying, or even a wish list you can casually leave hanging around the kitchen, this week from Kensington Park Road. For a starter, I saw a glam neighbour wearing these super stylish tortoise shell reading glasses (pic above) which look like they cost a fortune, but are £30 from Lutyens & Rubinstein and perfect for reading your new Christmas books with (suggestions for those later). L&R also do brilliant hardy canvas bags, perfect for students or just shopping. lutyensrubinstein

You can get 15% off the whole Christmas collection if you enter the code ELF15 before midnight tonight (Friday) or whisper The Code when you go into the shop. biscuiteers

By Sunspel the shop that brings you the softest, most comfortable cotton. Oh yes, it’s been making men’s underwear since 1860, made from superfine cotton so they know what they are doing. You can choose from the trad boxer in a cheery red or the superfine two button short (pic right). Thought we’d just show you the rear view … sunspel
