It probably feels as weird to me writing about Christmas right now as it does to you reading about it…it`s just 3 months away after all!
So if you are particularly organised and have started looking for gifts for your loved ones already but have hit a brick wall then these ideas from British Luxury brand, Alfred Dunhill may inspire you.
The brand have just launched their new Christmas 09 catalogue, which we have to say is full of absolute marvels when it comes to luxury products. Here`s our top three:
Shagreen Compendium – £25,000
Christmas is all about playing games right! Well, with this Stingray skin covered Compendium Christmas will be no boring affair this year.
This is our favourite product out of the catalogue this year and comprises a shagreen-covered box and cedar wood boards for chess, backgammon and noughts and crosses, all complemented by Sterling Silver playing pieces. At the bottom of the compendium you`ll also find dunhill playing cards, poker dice, bridge score cards and dunhill gaming pencils.
Crocodile Holdall – £17,500
You`re looking at a holdall made from the finest hard-wearing crocodile hide dyed with rich, chocolate brown colouring and joined together with metal studs and exquisite hand-stitching. It`s finished with a wax making it waterproof and the large zip makes it easy to pack. It also comes with a palladium lock, the key being contained in the holdall’s matching, crocodile pouch.
Mammoth Tusk Duffle Coat – £950
This is no ordinary Duffle Coat, this has 4000 year old Siberian Mammoth Tusks for Toggles! These tusks have been retrieved from the depths of the Siberian permafrost by nomadic herders who gather the tusks from the swamps during spells of warm weather. The tusks have been hand carved by artisans to create unique dunhill products, distinguished by their natural colour and the smoothness of the finished polished piece.
