So, Halloween has finished, and the run-up to Christmas has – finally – properly begun, marked by the change in colour of all high-street shop window displays. Orange and black has become red and green, as pumpkins and masks are replaced with presents and mistletoe. Over the next 7 weeks, we will all spend endless hours marching around shopping centres or comparing deals on Amazon, frantically filling our baskets – both real and virtual – and ticking off wish lists. However, when it comes to buying presents for a loved one, a little more time and consideration is required. If you want something personal, or even completely unique, then why not use a bespoke, online directory, as opposed to simply browsing Google in the vain hope you’ll stumble across the ‘perfect gift’.
Beyond Bespoke curate the very best of British luxury brands for customers to peruse at their leisure. An incredible array of makers and designers are able to advertise their wares on this self-affirming ‘little black book of luxury’. If you want to buy your partner a signature item of jewellery, a vintage case of wine, or even a rare antique, then you’ll be able to find a number of bespoke creators and small, luxury-goods providers through this website. The organisation is dedicated to bringing top specialists to a wider audience of affluence, be it for a designer knitwear maker or luxury travel agent; these small firms are showcased for mutual benefit – yours and theirs.
