That time of year is approaching and it's always a good idea to start your Christmas shopping early! We have put together a little gift guide to help get the generosity juices flowing and make sure you are able to find the perfect present. Whether it's a small stocking filler or a grand gesture, there is something for everyone.
FOR THE FOODIE
Portugal is not widely known for its food scene but this is gradually changing and we are proud to be spreading the word about the delicious produce originating from this country. For the Foodie, we recommend one of Lusophile's alluring cookbooks full of original options for the festive period. We are also stocking a mouth-watering selection of jams and honeys, perfect for glazing meat or veggies, or for adding a sweet note to a cheese board.
FOR THE PERFECT HOST
Who doesn't love a tapas night? Canapés? Our Appetiser Dish by Amorim Cork is perfect for arranging a selection of nibbles in the middle of the table while friends and family gather round with a glass of bubbly. The 3 dishes are removable for easy washing up. Our hand-painted ceramic coasters are also perfect for entertaining. The regular coasters protect your furniture from drips and spills and the larger size can be used as a hot pan stand or even as a serving platter!
Men are renowned for being tricky to shop for so here at Lusophile we thought we would give you a helping hand. The Shaving Set by Ach Brito, one of Portugal's leading soap manufacturers, is the ultimate in luxury mens grooming. Everything you need, packaged in an artistic box. Just wrap! If you are confident enough to go for clothing, we have picked our 3 favourite pieces from Litoral's A/W collection: a shirt, t-shirt and chinos. Comfort and quality always.
FOR THE YOGI
Lastly, we all know someone who is keen on their yoga or pilates. Cork yoga mats are becoming very popular in yoga studios across the world and it's easy to see why. Aside from looking far more stylish than their synthetic counterparts, the cork provides an excellent non-slip grip while remaining soft and cushioned underfoot. Cork is also a renewable resource, making this a sustainable product too.
Have you spotted something that you like the look of? Would you like to see it first-hand before purchasing? Then make sure you come and visit us as the Country Living Christmas Fair at the BDC in Islington next week!
