“Help, it’s nearly Christmas”: The Good Gift Giving Guide.

We can’t be alone in wondering how on earth it’s Christmas again. This last year has flown by; an emotional rollercoaster of lockdown announcements interspersed with all last year’s weddings and birthdays crammed into our few months of freedom.

But alas, we can’t slow down the relentless passing of time no more than Kim Kardashian can seem to stop North West from going “live” without her permission…and so we find ourselves once more wondering what the hell we’re going to get *insert that difficult family member’s name here* for Christmas once again.

Well fear not, we may not have the answers to all of life’s burning questions but we sure as hell do have some excellent gift ideas to satisfy even the pickiest of Christmas gift recipients. Oh, and they’re good for the planet too.

As always, ladies first (well, men too as this is gender-neutral)…

Why not show them how you feel with the Contradictions in Ilk Virtuous Extrait de Parfum? A modern unisex perfume brand founded in London in 2020 by Annabella Fasano-Leslie and Holly Hutchinson. Contradictions in Ilk is all about self-expression. As Dante once said, "Beauty awakens the soul to act" and this virtuous scent is beautiful and stirring in equal measure. Hand mixed in England, this transports your soul to the bucolic Tuscan countryside with the scent of the aromatic herb garden, cold stone walls, leather bound books and lingering incense.
