CVUK Christmas Wishlist

With only two weeks until Christmas (where has the time gone?!) all talk has turned to presents in the CVUK office.

Some of us have bought and wrapped all our gifts while others haven’t even started but what we’re most excited about is what we’ll be getting this year. Hours have been spent, over the last month or so, scrolling through websites to ogle at the presents we’re hoping we’ll be unwrapping on the 25th. We thought we’d share our wishlists with you, just in-case you’re out of inspiration!

Kara – Senior Consultant in Wholesale, Design & Technology

“This Christmas I want to sparkle more than the tinsel on my Christmas tree.” And what better way to do this than with a pair of sequin leggings, a sequin clutch and metallic nails.

Balthasar Flat Clutch by Anya Hindmarch £395.00 – “it is beautiful!!!!”


Illamasqua Nail Duo £24.00

“I hope Santa thinks I have been good enough this year!”

It seems bags and make-up are a common theme in our office, well a girl can never have enough bags and make-up is essential at all times.

Kerry – Consultant in Buying and Merchandising 

“I’ve have had my eye on a Lulu Guinness Lip Clutch for ages, in particular the ‘extra-large Lipstick Red’ to fit everything from my must have makeup, Jimmy Choo fragrance my phone and diary. Plus will brighten up any of my LBD’s for the festive season!”

KerryLip Clutch by Lulu Guinness £475.00

“On my list I have a Links Of London Rollerball pen, they have loads in their gorgeous accessory collection but my choice is the rose gold to match my watch. Its perfect for my handbag and for candidate and client meetings, shame I can’t have it before Christmas to write the  millions of cards I need to send.”

Kerry 2Links Of London Pen £120.00

“Last but not least I need a complete overhaul of my make-up collection. Some of the old favourites need replacing and there are some new products I’m keen to try too. The Selfridges beauty hall is the most amazing place in the world and being just across the road I visit it most days with my regular hang out being the Illamasqua counter. Their primer and selection of lipstick and nail colours always keeps me coming back and I love Molton Brown’s re-charge black pepper body scrub bar too! Just round the corner in street wear the H&M concession is amazing and then I can’t help but check out some of what I CAN’T have in McQueen”

I absolutely love this Kate Spade Clutch bag and the tongue in cheek twist logo, on a clutch bag great for when your actual Arm Candy is not present. Anything Tom Ford touches turns to Fabulous and I am wishing for this beautiful lip gloss to do the same to my lips.”
