Find The Perfect Gift in Canary Wharf
With five spacious, interconnected malls filled with every shop you could need, and plenty of places to stop for a delicious bite to eat, Canary Wharf makes Christmas shopping easy.
Gifts For Him
Where to start? Put your best gifting foot forward at Bremont. Among the British watch brand’s newest releases are some limited-edition delights, while its classics timepieces or aviation inspired cufflinks are sure to go down a treat. An equally luxurious present comes in twos; double-check his shoe or boot size before heading to Russell & Bromley’s stylish store to pick up a smart pair for the coming season. If he’s into keeping fit and having fun at the same time, buy him lessons from a pro at Padium on one of its eight brand-new, world-class padel courts, or vouchers for adults-only fairground venue Fairgame so you can go together.
For a man who’s into his tech, talk to the experts at Samsung to find out what he didn’t know he was missing and, for those keen on maintaining their wellbeing, turn to Aesop or Malin+Goetz for unfussy, premium products and to Randox Health or Freedom Clinics for a full health MOT. Leather accessories and box-fresh boxers tend to appeal to everyone – enter Coach and Calvin Klein Underwear respectively. Job done!
Gifts For Her
Sometimes, the smaller the box, the better and this is certainly true of presents chosen at Monica Vinader. The jeweller champions a distinctive, effortless style, and best of all, the Canary Wharf store offers complimentary engraving on a wide variety of its pieces; choose from a range of fonts and motifs, or have your own doodles and handwriting engraved. If she’s a shoe or accessory lover, the box will have to be slightly bigger for the chic, high-end goodies you can find at Dune London, Bimba Y Lola and Kate Spade New York.
Browse Space NK to surprise her with replacements for her favourite make-up products or new beauty goodies, Kiehl’s for superlative skincare and Jo Malone or Penhaligon’s for home fragrances that are presented as beautifully as they are scented. If she loves a mani-pedi, buy a gift voucher from London Grace or Townhouse (and pop some premium varnishes in with it) or a luxurious facial experience at skincare atelier Weather and Palette.
Gifts For The Kids
We’ll be surprised if you don’t spot a few things you’d like for yourself while meandering around Flying Tiger of Copenhagen; its offering is as unique and quirky as its name, selling everything from toys and games to arts and crafts. Essentially: the perfect stocking fillers. For the ‘big presents’, regardless of whether your child is a baby, toddler, primary-schooler or tween, the best toy shop in Canary Wharf is John Lewis & Partners, which can always be relied on for the presents that bring the biggest smiles. If they love gorgeous matching Christmas pyjamas as much as you do, The White Company’s selection this year is better than ever, and its cuddly toys are pretty irresistible too.
Gifts For Yourself
Once you’ve spent time and effort shopping for everyone else in Canary Wharf, gift yourself something special too. Watches of Switzerland stocks a number of brands that are renowned industry-wide for the calibre of their timepieces, from Rolex to Rado and Hublot to Zenith; consult the experts to find your perfect watch, whether it’s subtle or makes quite the statement. At David M Robinson’s beautiful showroom, luxury watches and fine jewellery both take centre stage; the team has perfected its bridal jewellery offering and is also home to exquisite Patek Philippe timepieces. If you’re after something to indulge your senses over the Christmas period, treat yourself to a gloriously festive Flowers & Plants Co. creation or Rituals advent calendar.
The little things can bring big smiles. Start with a Hotel Chocolat-shaped package (the chocolate penguins are delicious, festive and cute in equal measure) or a round Charbonnel et Walker box which houses its exceptional truffles. If they love a good brew with their sweet treats, Whittard of Chelsea stocks everything from first-class tea, coffee and hot chocolate to hampers and gift boxes – all so elegantly packaged that you’ll want to keep them on show. The Body Shop is a fail-safe for enticing scents and body products, while Waterstones is an essential stop for the newest books and 2023’s best-sellers.
To give back to our community this Christmas, shop for gifts at Circle Collective Canary Wharf; our partnership with this social enterprise, selling unisex skate and streetwear and vintage apparel in its Jubilee Place store, helps young Londoners looking to gain employment. The annual ELBA Toy Appeal is back too, running from 20 November to 15 December in Jubilee Place, encouraging our workers to spare a thought, and gift, for children in the local community. Each festive season, the Appeal’s team organises the donated gifts and distributes them to children and young people living in poverty in east London and beyond.
If you can give the gift of time, volunteer for The Felix Project, a charity that tackles food poverty by distributing surplus food. If you or your business would like to find out how to get involved, click here.
