But last-minute gifts don’t have to be an afterthought and can be just as special as those planned (or purchased) months in advance.
Her advice for giving an unforgettable gift? Pick something they wouldn’t choose for themselves.
“It has to have that ‘ahh, wow’ moment when it’s opened,” she tells marie claire.
“I spend a lot of time researching the perfect gift for each person and then the wrapping has to be beautiful, too.”
Here’s what she’ll be wrapping for her nearest and dearest this year.
For her sisters: GG Marmont Small Tote Bag
“I love the new silver hardware and the grey colour of this bag – it’s going to be perfect for one of my sisters. So we can gift something really special, we often come together on one statement gift - getting a Gucci handbag is such a lovely surprise.”
For mum: Herbarium butterfly mug
“My mum is a big tea drinker at home (coffee is always out in a cafe), so I thought this is a nice way for her to enjoy her tea ritual in a beautiful way.”
For herself: Dionysus small shoulder bag
“This is a Christmas present to myself! I always buy neutral hues so having one beautiful colour in my collection will be a lovely addition.”
From the kids: 25H Watch
“A gift from my children to me - they always ask me what ‘fashionie’ thing mummy would like from them, so we always go and select pieces together and then they gift it to me on Christmas morning. I don’t wear a watch often, but this piece feels retro and unisex which I like, and I’m sure I will gift it to one of my boys in the future.”
To wear for New Year’s Eve: Red velvet jacket and flared pants
“The red suit is such an iconic ‘Gucci’ piece as we all know, made famous originally by Gwyneth Paltrow in 1996, and now more recently when she arrived to the LA Gucci Love Parade. I like to collect iconic fashion pieces, to wear but also to keep for the future as these items are truly investments.
“Fashion for me is like collecting art - I just need to work out how to frame this suit!”
