Jazz up your soft drinks with Jukes

With a striking, summery design courtesy of King of Colour, designer Matthew Williamson, Jukes 8 is the perfect summer rosé dupe for any alcohol-avoiders. That said, the dry fruit-perfumed flavour would appeal to any sophisticated palette. Stir in to sparkling water or tonic for a refreshing, seasonal spritz.

£38 for 9 small bottles

Always the perfect gift, display photos in style by Addison Ross

Available in a choice of colours from zinging orange to this rather elegant periwinkle blue. One can never have enough photo frames and this enamel and silver version from Addison Ross is destined for pride of place


Mother-of-pearl inlay heel makes this Freya Rose design even more special

The Luna shoe from Freya Rose was created following a social-media competition during lockdown in which Freya challenged her community to come up with a winning design. All profits are being donated to UK children's charity Together for Short Lives. Should this particular model have sold out (it is a limited edition piece), rest assured her other fabulous creations are just as unique and beautiful.


Flamboyant Flamingo Floor Lamp by Margo and Plum

If it isn’t written in stone that every couple should receive at least one quirky gift, then it should be. My choice would be this flamingo floor lamp which has a tremendous sense of fun coupled with show-stopping style.


Wedding dress – check. Wedding swimwear? Check out Maiyo

The Eva swimsuit from Maiyo is as intricate as any wedding dress; in fact, throw on a chiffon overskirt and I’d be tempted to wear this on the wedding day. Failing that, establish yourself as a newly-wed on the honeymoon and hope for free cocktails by the pool.


Delectable treats in a keepsake box from macaron masters, Ladurée

So exquisitely pretty, but what else would you expect from macaron specialists Ladurée? This September sees the launch of their latest collaboration with Parisian one-of-a-kind handbag designer, Olympia Le Tan who has lent her artistic talents to designing a keepsake box for these delicate confections. Deliciousness all round, and so original as favours or bridal party gifts.


Switch to silk and you won’t regret it. The Big Silk should be a must-have on every list

100% mulberry silk, grade A and 22 momme (that’s one for the aficionados, it means the quality is exceptional and durable), the Big Silk’s pillowcase may have been created to address our individual beauty needs but take my word for it, you and your spouse will definitely need one each. Not only does it protect your blow-dry, prevent frizz and protect from pillow-crease, it’s also a literal dream to sleep on. (whilst you’re on their site, check out the face masks and scrunchies – all equally indispensable).

£49 each

A timeless classic from luxurious perfume-house, Creed

Golly, this is a sensory delight and I can’t get enough of it. Original Santal is simply perfect for sultry, sensual summer days and evenings as it practically pulses with warm, woody spices and dry floral infusions. This has everything that makes a classic: quality, longevity, appeal and originality.

From £175
