Best Gifts for Babies – in honour of the new Princess Charlotte!

We have often had discussions with friends and colleagues about the best gifts to buy for different occasions, from big birthdays to new house moves and more recently for new mums. Weddings are usually taken care of by a gift list so it’s the other events that tend to get everyone stumped. The last thing you want to do is be the friend who buys them another unimaginative voucher.

We’ve been experimenting with different gift combos for newborns depending on the price point. One of our new favourite things to do is to build a bespoke hamper (or Haute Box!) to put a few little things together. We’ve created our own suggestions for our three Haute Box options – £50, £100 and a couple of splurge ideas, depending on how much you want to spend. Let us know what you think, and if you need a hand sourcing other little extras to make the whole package look even more special.

P.s. it is really obvious that I don’t like “colour”?!

The Valentines Haute List – Gift ideas

We’re generally more fans of a home cooked meal (or some fried chicken…) and a good movie rather than Hollywood style romance on the polarising day that falls on 14 February, but any excuse to update our wish list. Here’s our selection of the things we’ve been clicking on (and re-clicking on) the most in the past few weeks… hopefully some will make it into our checkout basket! We’ll do a men’s one too in case you’re looking for something for the metro-man who has everything!

Let us know if you liked any of these picks – nothing wrong with a present to yourself! Go for the free gift wrap.. why not!

Hautelist: Christmas Gifts for Foodies

As we are officially one month away from Christmas, this week we will be making your present buying much easier! We’ve put together some tailored gift lists depending on whether your loved ones are real foodies, globetrotters or would just love something new to wear or use. Everything we have picked is basically what we would like to see for ourselves under the tree (we hope certain people are reading this!!!) so we have really scoured the web for you – if you like our taste in other things, then all you’ll need to do is click and buy and we hope your family and friends will like what you’ve chosen – let us know if they go down well!!

For today’s Christmas Hautelist, we’re focusing on the foodies… especially those who have been to every new restaurant in town and have kitted out their kitchens – there’s always a gadget they won’t have!
