Dear Santa: Our Blog

Whether it’s a special gift for your other half, a token of appreciation for your best friend or a tasty treat for the kids, be sure to find the perfect present with a little inspiration from our gift guide from our stores here at the Clarendon Oxford.

Christmas is the most magical time of the year and nothing makes it more special than spending it with your loved ones. If you’re looking to show the lady in your life just how much she means to you this festive period, we recommend this stunning sparkly dress from French Connection- she really will feel like a million dollars stepping out in this! To perfectly compliment her party outfit why not surprise her with an Olivia Burton gift set from Goldsmiths? The effortlessly chic watch and matching rose gold Daisy bracelet are timeless accessories for the lady who enjoys the finer things in life. Talking of the finer things, Swarovski’s limited edition 2018 Snowflake Ornament is made up of 156 clear crystal facets and comes on a white satin ribbon, perfect for adding a touch of class to your Christmas tree.

If materialistic fashion gifts aren’t for her, perhaps the Festive Sack of Berry Bon Bon Delights from The Body Shop may be more her thing. The novelty Christmassy sack is stuffed with fruity surprises that will leave her skin feeling invigorated and smelling like berries freshly foraged from the forest all Christmas long!

Buying for your BFF can be a difficult one. Are you sticking to a budget? Is there anything you can gift her to help her have the ‘me time’ she deserves? Well our stores have got both options covered! Sticking to a £20 budget has never been so easy with Kiko’s Sparkling Holiday Eyeshadow Palette which is available for just £16.90! Coming in an array of 4 mesmerizing shades, this is the ideal gift for your beauty Queen best friend. If you’re searching for the perfect pamper gift, look no further than The Perfume Shop’s Mugler Angel eau de parfum gift set. Complete with a mouth-watering sensual spray, luxurious body lotion and a delicious scented candle, she’ll be thanking her lucky stars that she has a friend like you.

And now moving on to the little ones. Christmas wouldn’t be complete without a sweet treat, and Thorntons have plenty of naughty but nice confectionary waiting to fill the stockings of all the good boys and girls of Oxford! We love this chocolate Santa model, which you can even add an iced personalised message for free to make it that extra bit special. An alternative gift for your little angels that’s just as sweet is this penguin diary from Claire’s.
