Bespoke buying: unique gifts for your principal this Christmas

A Christmas ornament made up of tiny little symbols of Christmas, including a santa hat, candy canes, and Christmas trees.

With December 25 fast approaching, now is the time to think about your principal’s Christmas gifting. If they have put you in charge of sourcing gifts for their dearly beloved, it can be hard to know exactly what to buy – and where to buy from.

To make your December as stress-free as possible, we’ve curated three of the best bespoke gifts to celebrate with, ensuring your principal can pass on all the Christmas cheer this year.

Wine time with Charlotte

Tiger’s wine expert, Charlotte is perfectly placed to share her extensive wine experience with your principal’s family and friends this Christmas. Should they be hosting a private dinner or festive party, why not gift Charlotte’s personal sommelier services, where she can design, source and curate the wine offering?

If they are wine aficionados looking to build upon their knowledge or cellar, Charlotte can also host wine tastings and consult on building a private portfolio, ensuring your principal’s family and friends never go thirsty.

For something truly extravagant, consider purchasing the gift of a cellar – Charlotte can design and advise on the building of the entire structure, covering elements such as temperature control, storage and stock control.

Travel experiences with Brown + Hudson

Is this the year your principal and their guests jet off on a luxurious escape? The team at Brown + Hudson can assist in all travel planning, creating bespoke experiences in every part of the world. By gifting Brown + Hudson’s services, your principal’s family and friends are in for a treat – through a vast network of contacts, they are able to craft a journey that’s tailored to their interests and travelling style. From bucket list items, such as playing the grand piano in a concert hall or meeting endangered animals in their natural habit, to luxpeditions that conquer personal challenges, the world will be their oyster.

Creating memories with Stevenson Brothers and Wrightson & Platt

Should you need to arrange the purchasing of gifts for children, it’s hard to look past the Stevenson Brothers. Twins Tony and Marc have been creating bespoke rocking horses for the last thirty-five years and now count the Royal Family as clients. They can create the rocking horse in the likeness of a beloved pet horse, or something completely unique – either way, it will be hand-carved, hand-painted and enhanced with personal touches, such as favourite colours or a specific engraving.

Similarly, help your principal’s family and friends capture a moment in time with Wrightson & Platt. The sculptors and jewellers are the world’s leading experts in family life-casting and can create heirloom-quality pieces in a variety of materials, including bronze, silver and glass. Using the most advanced technologies and the highest attention to detail, the highly skilled team can capture every crease and wrinkle of a newborn’s hands or feet, a loved one’s hand or a dog’s paw.

Does your Christmas to-do list also involve hiring temporary staff for the holiday season? Tiger Private’s temporary division can help! Get in touch today.
