We know that feeling, the occasion demands a present for her that’s going to wow, is quirky, and fabulously different. And you don’t want to face the Christmas crowds to find it.
Fret not, we’ve got your back. Take a peek at Vela’s top picks below the £130 mark.
Fornasetti Ortensia scented candle
King of understated Italian design, Fornasetti lives on in a fabulous collection of home décor that’s tricksy to get your hands on. Which is exactly why this quirky candle will please, beyond the delicious scent and luscious looks that is.
Chinti and Parker can see our dreams, and then design them. Whether you go for this deliciously irreverent Breton beauty, or one of their trademark knits, these connoisseurs of contemporary cashmere will win you serious brownie points on Christmas Day.
Yes, yes. We know what you’re thinking. Of course we’d say that. But why let the surprises and smiles end when the wrapping paper is cleared away by the bin men? With a Vela subscription, she’ll be thanking you again and again, as each month a new selection of the season’s finest flowers arrive through the letterbox to brighten up her home through those bleak winter months until the sun makes a reappearance in June. In in doubt, ask yourself: how long do you want to see that grin for?
