Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
It’s just not Christmas without a last-minute dash through the sale aisles, indiscriminately filling your basket with any old tat like a deranged Santa, right? WRONG. London has a huge selection of shops selling excellent gifts, you just need to know where to look.
That’s why we’ve put together a list of brilliant Christmas shops around the capital, where you can pick up gifts that people will remember for years to come for all the right reasons. Festive dons like Harrods and Selfridges are in there, of course (they’ve been hanging their tinsel since July) but we’ve got indie shops too, from arty museum gift shops to cute boutiques, geeky bookshops to top menswear stores. Now get your wrapping paper at the ready and get shopping.
