St James’s gives you exclusive gift ideas for Christmas 2012

St James’s London offers exclusive and limited edition gifts unlike anywhere else in the world, for those looking for something really special this Christmas.

With 170 years of experience, Foster & Son can create an extra special bespoke shoe. For an investment of £2850, style and design can be tailored and a shoe created precisely for that person’s measurements, the ultimate in custom-made gifts. If an indoor winter is planned, Crockett & Jones offers hand-embroidered velvet slippers designed for both men and women starting from £150 and £225 respectively. At shirt and tie makers Harvie & Hudson, gift tokens for fully custom-made shirts starting from £175 are available for a totally personalised present, or for a festive themed gift, a made to measure pyjamas set from Turnbull & Asser costs £285.

Perfumers Floris has unveiled four new exclusive gift sets comprising moisturiser, shower gel, hand washes and eau de toilette. Scents include White rose, Cefiro, Santal and Cinnamon & Tangerine, ranging in price from £35 to £70.

Alfred Dunhill is offering a laser projection keyboard for a seamless typing experience, the perfect, compact present for a regular traveller. Another traveller gift essential is the Harris Tweed Wash Bag from D. R. Harris, available in two sizes and featuring two bespoke-designed Harris Tweeds, ‘Town’ and ‘Country’; prices are £75 for small and £95 for large. New to St James’s, JM Weston has created the Attaché Case from their first large leather goods range; Grand Angle, a beautiful gift for the modern professional – inspired by both the suitcase and briefcase, with magnetic flaps, this product is sleek and sophisticated, costing £1,430.

After a hard day of shopping in St James’s, customers can enjoy a glass of Perrier-Jouët Champagne in the Lounge at Dukes Hotel, or afternoon tea at The Cavendish. Italian restaurant Franco’s have tables, rooms and even the whole restaurant to hire to host Christmas parties from 12 to 125 guests to enjoy traditional and modern Italian dishes in the heart of St James’s.

As well as their traditional range of Christmas Hampers, Fortnum & Mason can help during the build up to Christmas with their Stir Up Sunday Kit and Christmas Cake Kit, providing all you need to make the perfect Christmas deserts. Ready made Christmas cakes and puddings are also available and for those wanting an alternative, sponge cakes come in a variety of flavours such as Lemon Curd, Triple Ginger and Sticky Toffee with Salted Caramel. As a savoury alternative, Paxton & Whitfield’s Acacia Wood Boards with Cheese cost £45.00; made up of four individual cheese boards made from acacia wood, they come with portions of delicious Montgomery’s Cheddar, Trefle, Beauvale and Oxford Isis.

Berry and Bros. & Rudd, London’s oldest wine and spirit merchant, produces the exclusive No. 3 London Dry Gin, named after their address on St James’s Street. This gin is a favourite of Dukes Hotel in St James’s who use this in their famous Vesper Martinis based on the recipe by Ian Fleming.

“A bespoke shoe is not just for Christmas, it’s for life”
