Our guide to choosing Gifts

Finding that special present for your loved ones can be fraught…… get it wrong and there could be a touch of frost in the air after the unwrapping…. In our quest for global harmony, we have asked Natalia and Catherine, the doyennes of Cordings Customer Service for their top tips on choosing the right gift.

NATALIA: Always check the size; look in their current wardrobes for clues, and never guess. A furtive glance at most items of clothing will give you this information.

CATHERINE: Avoid tailored items such as jackets if you are unsure, knitwear is one of our best-selling presents, partly because it is more forgiving.

NATALIA: Try to buy a gift that you know will match something in their wardrobe, one comment that we hear is ‘I have nothing to go with it’

CATHERINE: A touch of luxury is often well received, a pair of cashmere socks, or our silk and cashmere scarves are hugely popular.

NATALIA: Putting together an outfit for that special present is also popular. Talk us on 0207 7584122 for advice. A shirt, tie and pair of trousers are the most frequently bought Christmas outfit.

CATHERINE: Cordings are renowned for our heritage pieces such as our Covert Coat and Mackintosh. These are timeless classics that will give years of pleasure.

NATALIA:Buying an item from our classic tweed ranges such as the House Check Tweed is also popular, as you can continue to add to their wardrobe with matching items.

The House Check Tweed can be built on to create a series of gifts, from the jacket to the cap and even the washbag.

CATHERINE: Our best-selling gifts for ladies are our fairisle serapes, eminently versatile and with a range of colours, they have proved to be a sure fire winner.

NATALIA: Boots and shoes are also very popular for ladies at this time of year; it is a fact of life that a woman rarely has enough shoes!
