Top 10 Gifts 2017 

 

1. Apple Watch

Top of the list is the Apple Watch. Choose from a wide selection of options on the wheel below. The beauty of the Apple Watch is it was not designed for one specific user. No matter who you are, no matter what your profession or hobbies you can tailor Apple Watch to your needs. From sports progression monitoring, reading messages, scrolling social media and browsing emails to answering calls and, oh yeah… telling the time! Available in two different screen sizes, thousands of strap combinations and now with inbuilt GPS + cellular capabilities an Apple Watch is the ultimate gift to place under your tree – a smile guaranteed (ps mum it’s the one on the far right).


2. The Best Vlogging Camera

A question I get asked a lot is what camera gear do I use? The Sony RX100 is a camera I absolutely swear by! It isn’t just for vlogging but if vlogging is something you are into or want to try the Sony RX100 is the kiddy. It’s super easy to use in full manual mode to ensure you get the highest quality video and audio. When creating movies the last thing you want to be stressing about is the technical mubo-jumbo. The Sony RX100 is in the middle price bracket of a decent point and shoot camera’s but has top of the range image quality. I predominantly use mine for video but the image quality is just as sexy. So if it’s travel, food, lifestyle or fashion you are in to – get the Sony RX100 in your shopping basket and watch those Instagram likes rise. The camera comes with a re-chargeable battery, you’ll just need to grab an SD card below. I’ll link it all below here for you. Or Buy on Amazon Here.


3. Knomad – ‘KNOMO London’

This isn’t just for the self-employed, the Knomad is beautifully designed and manufactured to Knomo’s premium standards. From the robust zip to the bespoke inbuilt organizer – the Knomad oozes functionality and style. Available in two different styles, two different sizes and two different colours. With the option to include a power pack – you won’t run out of juice on the move. Even if your cafe-stop off doesn’t have a plug by the only free table (we’ve all been there).

Yeah… it’s a toothbrush. And it’s cool. And it’s the most powerful clean you’ll ever have. In a league of its own and uncomparable to competitors, the Foreo Issa carves a mark within the dental industry of its own. Recharge via USB (cable included). The Polymer bristles will last so much longer than a regular toothbrush. I’m not usually a fan of an electric toothbrush but the Foreo Issa bridges the gap between manual and electronic toothbrushes. The Freo Issa massages the gums and inhibits overbrushing, preventing damage to tooth enamel. Plus… it looks good. That bathroom shelf will be looking fly with a Foreo Issa on it ;). If nothing else friends will be asking what even is that? And it comes with a soft leather pouch for traveling. Not your typical gift but remember the importance of dental hygiene, coupled with the long life and high quality of the Foreo Issa and it’s suddenly a really thoughtful gift idea! Check out and shop the choice of colours below.

 In at number 5 is James Read’s Hydra Tan Mist. Newly launched for men (did you read my post all about how I use the Hydra Tan Mist?) but also available for women. This bottle is a £20 ticket to sun this winter. If you haven’t tanned or regularly tan this is for you… So wait? That’s everyone! The Hydra Tan mist slowly builds up dependant on how often you use it. Treat someone (or yourself) to a cheeky winter bronze glow and get yourself a bottle or two. This is genuinely my favorite new-found grooming product of 2017. Trust me on this one guys. Shop the Hydra Mist for men here, and shop the women’s below.

The Blac Croc iPhone case from Aspinal Of London is available for most iPhone sizes. It also comes in a deep purple which is just as gorgeous. This is genuinely the best quality phone case I have ever had to date. Easily. This sexy black croc number is super sleek, beautifully made and protects your phone without compromising the thinness (you know that annoying chunky case effect slapping something on the back of your phone can have? Not here!). Modelled on my iPhone 7+ above, with the ability to emboss the initials of the person you are buying for, the black croc iPhone case from Aspinal is the perfect gift this Christmas. Added bonus: it come’s gift wrapped – that’s one less thing to worry about guys! Shop the case here.


7. Henry Watches

Like the idea of giving a beautiful time keeping piece for your partner to wear and remember you by each day? Don’t have thousands of pounds to spare? Me neither! Henry watches are the solution. Having been lucky enough to own a few Henry watches (as photographed), the minimalistic design and perfect colouring make each timepiece from Henry London stand out. My Henry watch is one of the lower costing watches I own, yet it always receives the most questions and compliments. If the unique square finish isn’t quite doing it for you, then shop a round face which is finished off with a luxury glass dome. The round glass dome gives Henry watches an almost 3d effect – something I haven’t seen from other brands. Henry watches are perfectly priced, perfectly designed, perfectly manufactured and perfect for under your tree this Christmas.

Remember I did a fitness class balancing on a board on water?.. If you have no idea what I’m talking about: I recently was invited to Bose’s aqua fit class at the Haymarket Hotel to experience a fitness class, on a balance board (I fell in, it was in my IG story, it was fun). It was all part of raising awareness for Bose’s brand new product: The SoundLink Micro. Having experienced an in-depth product demonstration, throwing one into the pool and then taking one home – it’s safe to say Bose have done it again! I own the mini link II, but the micro is now my go-to speaker. It’s Water resistant!! What a bonus. With similar sound quality as the mini link II but to be smaller, brighter coloured and a lower price makes this the ultimate wireless bluetooth speaker to gift this Christmas. If you buy two you can use them in party mode – play the same track through both speakers at the same time or put them in stereo mode and one will play the Right while the other plays the Left parts of the studio track. Cool right? Shop the Soundlink Micro below!

9. The Ultimate Party Jacket – NEXT

 It’s the item of clothing that’s given me my first 2000+ likes on Instagram, one that is always a talking point. It’s my go-to part jacket it’s my purple blazer from NEXT. I’ll be writing a guide to upping your blazer game for party season too. But for now grab your’s to gift this Christmas (while stocks last on this one!!).

WORK SMARTER, GET ORGANISED | KNOMO

Quality, fashion, comfort and practical are four words not commonly associated with one another. How can something be comfortable and practical yet have a striking, fashionable appearance?

The answer is ‘Knomo’.

Knomo London is one of my favorite luxury luggage brands on the market today. While Knomo take-away the baggage from stressful packing. Each bag has been carefully designed and produced with precision engineering. Owning a good bag is extremely underrated, from the damaging repetitive strain injuries that cheaper alternatives can give you, to the subconscious negative psychological effects having a cluttered bag can bring.

As a self-employed individual I rely on products like my Knomo London bags, and Knomo’s admirable attention to product functionality. I now own two of their beautiful leather bags; ‘Knomo Dale’ and ‘Knomo Laptop Bag’ – both featured in this post.

Transferring my items between Knomo bags is simple as each product has its own place in both bags. Two very different styles incorporating the same technology and design qualities. It is genuinely challenging to discover any Knomo faults. Any easy way to see if a bag is worth the money… The zip. So many bags, both designer, and high street fashion often use the same low-quality zip. You could have the most beautiful bag in the world, but if that zip goes the bag is useless. Knomo London shares the same outlook on the importance of the zip quality and this is instantly recognisable as soon as you open the bag to remove of the retail packaging. A solid, I’m going nowhere zip. Thank you Knomo!!

Knomo London’s tough stitching through the high-quality leather echoes the attention to detail invested by the Knomo designers. Both bags are bags for life. And that’s just the exterior, it get’s better. The interior of both bags has character. High-quality neoprene pockets for your gadgets and cables keep you organised on the move. Better organisation reduces stress and increases productive workflow.

Knomo London’s ‘Dale’ (backpack) is my go-to bag. Wear it as a backpack, tuck the straps away and carry it as a tote, or securely slide it onto your suitcase handle for easy travel compatibility.

The backpack strap buckles are a metal composite. When fastened it feels secure so you don’t need to worry about the possibility of them coming loose and damaging the contents. When switched into business mode the ‘Dale’ can be carried as a tote. The thick handles allow you to carry a full bag without it digging into your skin. They are also securely sewn into the leather – two months of use and there is no sign of wear and tear. Open up the front compartment to reveal Knomo London’s iconic bright-blue organiser. I fill mine with 1x card reader, spare SD cards, battery pack, wallet, business cards, lens cloth, sunglasses, laptop charger, pens and an on-the-move aftershave ;). It’s all quickly accessible and neatly organised – perfect for those long days in the city or short haul trips. Click HERE to learn more about Knomo Dale.

One of my favorite functions is the ‘Detachable Key Chain’. I have a brown leather attachment on my keys and both Knomo bags have a little hook inside that this fastens onto. No more rummaging for keys!

Don’t need all the bells and whistles and just need something to organise your essentials? The Knomo Laptop bag is a dream. Those high-quality zips, beautiful leather, and inner organisation compartments will protect your laptop and accessories from scratches and have them easy to access at each stop-off you have throughout the day.

The Knomo Laptop Bag compliments the Knomo Dale perfectly. Incorporating the same design details and product functionality into a smaller, lighter-weight alternative for when that extra space is not required. I use my Knomo Laptop Bag to carry a 13” laptop, magic mouse, laptop charger, external hard drive, battery pack, A4 notebook and iPhone charging cable. It’s like being able to detach the Knomo Dale’s front compartment and take it into the city with you. Learn more about Knomo Laptop bags HERE.
