The Christmas season is upon us and Europe’s leading retail and leisure destination, Bluewater, has conducted some research to find out the top gifts on Christmas lists of people across the South East. And, because it’s Christmas, Bluewater has teamed up with John Lewis to make Christmas shopping a little easier, unveiling a Christmas guide to satisfy the desires of her and him.
Perfume tops the lists of women in the South East’s must-have list, so why not treat her to a luxury fragrance such as the Charlotte Tilbury Scent of a Dream Eau de Parfum £49, a first-of-its-kind ‘floral chypre’ perfume harmony.
Give the gift of dazzle this Christmas with a little black dress adorned with sequins and all things shiny, a catwalk trend for the year. Check out this Damsel in a Dress Clarisse Dress, Black £129, where sequins reign supreme.
3. BEAUTY PRODUCTS
A selection of the season’s top lipstick tones will make a great addition to any lady’s makeup bag, so why not opt for the Marc Jacobs Up All Night Lip Creme Make Up Set £34, that will be sure to indulge any pout.
Make her Christmas memorable by choosing a personalised piece of jewellery that will be forever treasured, like with the Merci Maman Personalised Intertwined Charm Necklace, Gold £89, a great gift for any occasion.
According to Bluewater’s research, clothes top the wish list of men in the South East, so with the classic bomber jacket being one of the biggest trends this year, why not get the John Lewis & Co. Waxed Cotton Bomber Jacket, Navy £99, a luxurious take on a casual outerwear classic.
Help make exercising in the New Year a little easier with the Bose Sound Sport Headphones £139, which feature sweat-resistant technology and stay comfortably, yet securely, in place during exercise, an ideal gift for runners.
For those looking for a timeless gift, why not consider a watch like the Sekonda 1225.27 Men’s Date Watch, Silver and Black £38.75, an effortless daytime watch and great addition to any outfit.
4. AFTERSHAVE & BEARD GROOMING
Aftershave and beard grooming kits are a popular choice for the modern man, so how about gifting a shaving product such as the Taylor of Old Bond Street Sandalwood Shaving Cream £10, which will do the trick.
FOR HIM & HER
Treat a friend or family member to something you know they will love with a Bluewater Gift Card. From £5 to £500 and redeemable at over 300 stores and over 50 places to eat, the Bluewater Gift Card is the ultimate gift.
All items available at John Lewis, Bluewater. The Bluewater Gift Card can be purchased at bluewater.co.uk or at one of the Concierge desks in-mall.
Because it’s Christmas, guests taking a trip to Bluewater can enjoy much more than just cracking their seasonal shopping list. Why not stop by the Giving Tree to donate a gift to a less fortunate child, show off your best moves on the outdoor (undercover!) ice rink or take the children to see Santa in his Grotto (with special guest PaddingtonTM). Plus, extended opening hours and free parking means you can make the most of your day out.
