The TLA team are looking forward to Christmas more than ever this year, and we don’t think we’re alone. Our Junior Account Manager, Lydia, has already asked if it would be acceptable to eat a mince pie and our Account Executive, Kristie, is already planning to put her Christmas tree up in the middle of November… controversial, we know.
We know people who have their Christmas shopping all wrapped up, those who are nearly done and those who haven’t even started. If you’re the latter, fear not because the TLA team are here to inspire you.
Unique vine adoption concept, Cuvée Privée, have teamed up with Relais & Chateaux property, Les Crayères, to create the ultimate Christmas gift this festive season. I’d love nothing more than to be whisked away to Champagne for the
weekend to visit the Forget-Chemin vineyard, dine at a two-Michelin-starred restaurant and feel the sun on my skin (something that I’ve definitely missed this year!).

Even though Christmas might be a little different this year, it won't stop me going gift crazy [within reason £££]! Lille-based accessories label, Le Colonel, are my number one choice for men's accessories. It's a great idea to surprise a guy in your life with a bow tie, tie, braces or cufflinks; something small but impactful that he wouldn't normally buy himself. Their beautiful packaging alone is worth it! I'll be nabbing my partner Josh this silk bow tie – perfect for when we're able to go to events again. One of our longest standing clients is Swedish basics favourite, A Day's March. A winner in the menswear field, they've just launched a womenswear line headed up by the wonderful Behnaz Aram. I'd love to be wearing this checked overshirt in a gorgeous boxy fit by boxing day... hint hint!

This Christmas, I’ll be sending a selection of Funkin’ pre-mixed cocktails to all my friends. Their Piña Colada and Strawberry Daiquiri cocktails are perfect for those who have really missed travel this year, while their Espresso Martini ‘Bag in a Box’ is great for those who plan to sip Espresso Martini’s all Christmas long.

This Christmas, a festive city break and visit to The Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa in Bath would be just the ticket to bring the jolly spirit! For me, I love seeking out the UK’s hidden gems and in Bath there is plenty to be discovered, from the historic cobbled streets and artisan shops, to the cosy pubs and underground wine bars where mulled wine is aplenty! At The Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa, they do everything to deliver a true home from home experience, where every luxury touch creates a special moment. Ok, it’s not quite going to fit under the tree but if this year has taught us anything it is to treasure spending quality time with our loved ones and creating lasting memories”.
