If you're looking to get brownie points this Christmas, consider one of these luxurious gifts for the ladies in your life

1.Charbonnel & Walker sea salt caramel truffles

Forget a ropey selection box, these milk chocolate truffles with a caramel and sea salt centre from the high-end English chocolatier, will posh-up the lady in your life’s stocking without making too much of a dent in your wallet.

 £12.50, liberty.co.uk

2. Marc by Marc Jacobs deco scarf

A 50-50 mix of silk and cashmere, this bold and bright scarf in Marc Jacobs' popular Etta print manages to be chic, warm and on-trend retro too. She’ll love it, we promise.

£195, harveynichols.com

3. Penhaligon's musical Christmas box

This elegant rotating music box plays the sweet tune of a songbird. A lovely addition to a dressing table and something for her to keep little treasures in.

£30, selfridges.com

4. Nicholas Kirkwood bespoke shoe/meeting

If she loves shoes, then she'll get very excited about this bespoke service from top Brit designer Nicolas Kirkwood. It's not cheap, but she'll get to meet him and he'll help her pick a customised pair and see it made -  it's a bit of a one-off experience. 

£1,000, giftlibrary.com 

5. Maison Fabre knitted gloves

A combination of luxe lambskin and creamy soft wool, these unusual gloves make a bit of a statement as well as being practical - in them she can be smart and cosy, all in one.

£199, fenwick.co.uk

6. Liberty purse

This pretty purse in Liberty’s Iphis print is small enough to fit in a clutch bag — an important quality, trust us— but still keeps money organised as it has card slots and a coin pouch.

£165, liberty.co.uk

7. Her Majesty book

This coffee table tome, published to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, celebrates the private and public life of Elizabeth II. It’s the quality and the depth of the photography— some previously unseen— which makes flicking through a real treat. Look out for the work of renowned photographers past and present including Cecil Beaton, Lord Snowdon, Rankin and Wolfgang Tillmans.

£99.99, nationalgallery.co.uk

8. Diptyque orange chai candle

Scented candles fall into that category of things that people want but feel a bit decadent splashing out on for themselves, so it’s nice if someone else does.  This one, a limited edition from the Parisian maker, is a festive mix of orange, quince and Indian spices.  

£25, Selfridges

9. Victoria Beckham grained leather pouch

Think what you like about VB, but her simple, elegant but funky bags are on many girls' wish lists. This colour popping orange number with an exposed zip is cool and versatile - it has detachable shoulder strap, so can be used as a clutch.  

£495, harveynichols.com

10. Lomography La Sardina Metal Edition

Analogue cameras are increasingly popular and this one's a stylish take on the trend. Use it for taking wide-angle snaps or play with the wind-back function to layer photos over each other. The metal and bright blue casing means it makes a cool accessory too.

£149, sweatband.com
