HIGH SOCIETY

SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker Lucille pumps, £310, Amazon Fashion (amazon.co.uk/fashion)

Emulate the enviable wardrobe of ultimate style icon Sarah Jessica Parker with these statement heels from her label. The classic pointed court style comes in a luxe satin fabric (also available in black and cream), and the stiletto heel is topped with an oversized bow. We’re sure Carrie Bradshaw would approve.

GOOD CALL

Monqi children’s smartphone, £149.99, Carphone Warehouse (0800 049 6250, carphonewarehouse.com)

If your child’s begging you to get them a smartphone but you’re worried about their digital safety and how much they’ll spend using it, this is your answer. The monqi Android phone is simple to use and links to an app on the parent’s phone, through which they can limit calls, texts and data usage, approve contacts and be alerted if the child leaves a certain area. As well as all this, the phone comes with all the high-tech features your kids would expect, and they won’t feel as if their privacy is being compromised, either.

LIP SERVICE

Lulu Guinness mini portable DAB & FM radio, £89.99, QVC (0800 514131, qvcuk.com)

A popular retro style of radio at this moment, this glamorous one has been created by designer Lulu Guinness, known for her iconic prints of cats, lips and ladies’ faces. The liquorice allsorts shades and striking design will complement any boudoir, and it’s also portable.  

HELLO DOLLY

Chatsworth doll’s pram and bag, £350, Silver Cross (0345 872 6900, silvercrossbaby.com)

Fans of the Royal family have a lot to get excited about next year, and what better way to help your little one get excited for the arrival of a new prince or princess than with this dolls’ pram from a brand that’s been a favourite with the Royals throughout history. 

A mini version of the real thing, it comes with a matching changing bag, adjustable hood and unique suspension system, plus lots of other high-quality details like hand stitching and chrome-spoked wheels.

LA DOLCE VITA

Blond chocolate & hazelnut panettone, £26.99, Selfridges (0800 123 4000, selfridges.com)

The traditional Italian festive cake is a lighter alternative to the rich Christmas cake, but sometimes the flavours can be a little uninspiring. Try instead this indulgent variety from Selfridges, full of blond chocolate (a type of caramelized white chocolate) and rich hazelnuts, and is delicious enjoyed on its own alongside a black espresso, or toasted and buttered.

Selfridges’ salted caramel panettone is apparently the best-selling Christmas item in their Food Hall, and we imagine this crowd-pleaser isn’t far behind.
