As youd expect, at Christmas, Quintessentially pulls out all the stops for Members looking for rare gifts that come with lashings of wow factor.

But as we know, shopping can be stressful, especially when theres little time or inspiration to run with. This is where Quintessentially can really make the difference to someone this Christmas, thanks to a highly knowledgeable and super-connected gift sourcing team, who are passionate about all things luxury. Dee Bowman, General Manager of Quintessentiallys gift sourcing team, explains how she and her experts approach the festive season:

Dee Bowman: We arent really like the competition because we have a solid 18 years of experience in this field, rooted in the personal relationships we have nurtured over that period (and which we continue to grow) with the likes of Chanel, Rolex, Cartier and Faberg. This means we can locate the most exquisite limited edition pieces, be they fashion, fine jewellery, Herms bags, timepieces or the latest cutting-edge technology, for our Members.

Personal shopping is now at the core of our gift services and it keeps on growing as peoples lives get busier. Few want the stress of dealing with the crowds at Christmas. We provide an invaluable, seamless and stress-free service for our cash-rich, time-poor clients.

DB: We get all kinds of requests for inspirational gift ideas and hard-to-find pieces. We adapt to the clients brief and budget, and mine our expertise and contacts. We also offer a curated gift edit and once the client has made their selection, we will wrap each item with love and care for them, and deliver anywhere in the world in time for Christmas, circumstances permitting.

Some of the most sought-after gift choices include the iconic Herms Birkin or Kelly handbag, which are only available to top-tier clients of Herms. Wecanaccess these kinds of elusive items. We also receive requests for limited edition watches, such as the Patek Philippe Grand Complications timepiece.

How to pick the perfect gift this Christmas

DB:Gift giving should be an enjoyable, positive experience, but leaving shopping until the last minute takes a lot of the pleasure out of it and we see how it can lead to costly mistakes.

Give yourself as much time as possible.

Think about the person you are buying for, what do they love doing, what makes them happy? A gift that reflects the values and passions of the recipient can create a truly memorable experience for them.

Dont always go for the failsafe options, be adventurous and take a chance on something extraordinary, or thats not obvious.

Personalised, customised, bespoke gifts show how much you care.

Experiences are increasingly popular gifts: a cooking class with your favourite chef in Italy or France for example.

Ordering gifts online is another great way to save time.

And finally wrap your gifts beautifully. There is something very special about receiving a box wrapped in bows, placed under the tree.
