Sometimes it's the little gestures that count the most, which is why we've come up with our top five small luxury gift ideas that say a lot without burning a hole in your pocket. What's more, they can all be personalised for that extra special touch. There's only one rule to remember: get your orders in early to avoid disappointment!

Smythson

A gifting stalwart when it comes to fine leather goods, Smythson has a few surprises up its sleeve this Christmas thanks to brand new personalisation options. Creative director Luc Goidadin and his team have delved into the luxury marque's typographical archive and created a variety of vintage-inspired fonts inspired by those favoured by customers in the early 1900s. In those days, clients would have their stationary embossed with initials framed within Baroque printed frames. The design team have used these embossed frames as a starting point, turning this decorative element into actual letters. As a result, a new Smythson alphabet renders gifts smore unique and avant-garde. Embossing starts at £6 a letter; notebooks start at £25 for the brand’s adorable ’Wee’ model.

Chaos

Personalised tech is a genius idea and it comes courtesy of Chaos, a brand that has its finger on the pulse when it comes to good looking gifts. The business – it simply specialises in personalised high quality leather bound accessories - is the brainchild of queen fashion stylists Charlotte Stockdale and Katie Lyall, who realised that there's nothing quite as ‘Intagramable’ as a trinkets branded with your own name. Kendall Jenner is a fan which is a testament to the popularity of this label built on a simple premise. There are cardholders, laptop covers, bag charms and iPhone covers to choose from, but by far the nattiest offerings are the leather embossed 'wrappings' for iPhone/laptop chargers ( UK, EU, US) and wireless Apple earphones. From £45, https://shop.chaos.club/

Olivia Von Halle

Maker of exquisite PJs, Olivia Von Halle has an extensive celebrity fan base. In fact, her silk pyjamas are intended as both sleepwear and outerwear, meaning that you can team her luxurious sets with killer heels and hit the party – when you’ve over done the champers, you can just crash into bed! Pyjamas and nightdresses start at around £310, but these stylish ‘Jet-Setter’ sleep masks are more affordable at £75; what's more. you can have them personalised for £15 a letter. Choose from simple Serif or super cool glitter initials. oliviavonhalle.com and Selfridges.com

Moet & Chandon

A good bottle of champagne is a failproof gift but you can make it all the more special with a personalised message. Selfridges are offering this service online and what's more, it doesn't cost a penny more. You can add up to 10 letters. £45.99 Selfridges.com

Johnstons of Elgin

Don't knock the socks! And especially if they come from this British brand. A set of ultra plush bed socks by Johnstons sets the bar high when it comes to gifting: they are 100% cashmere and can also be monogramed for that extra special twist. £120 + £20 for up to three letters. johnstonsofelgin.com
