Our Unexpectedly Joyful Christmas

Launching Pairs Scotland a couple of months ago was unexpectedly joyful in itself but the real joy has come from the streams of wonderful feedback from customers , insta love and press articles about our mohair and alpaca sock collections. It’s been emotional!

We were delighted to be seen alongside some truly exciting new and established brands in the press and we’ve had a lot of fun selecting beautiful presents from the gift lists for our friends and family to unwrap by the tree this Christmas.

Fashion Editor, Sophie Dearden’s glamorous luxe accessories selections in the 124 super-stylish gift ideas from YOU’s fashion and beauty teams put the chic into loungewear this winter. We chose Prowling Leopard Silk Pyjama Set from Yolke, they even have a matching child’s set! Delightful.

RED’s Abigail Southan was spot on when she wrote Christmas gift ideas for every different kind of friend  . Lots of customers have been sending unexpectedly joyful PAIRS of socks to friends when they can’t see them in replace of a hug this year. We particularly love the Brora Icelandic Mohair Jumper for your Scroogey friend! That’s definitely Alice and Anna in the office, who are not at all into Christmas jumpers but this is terribly chic and of course being in mohair it matches our mohair socks wonderfully.

Town and Country House Magazine’s very clever take on the gift list with The best Christmas gifts to buy based on the zodiac star signs provided a wealth of gifting inspiration! If you’re an Aries then here’s our choice of goodies. The stunning Alice Cicolini Candy Lacquer Totem Ring from Liberty is the perfect cocktail ring for that colour pop.

16 Sustainable Stocking Fillers for an Eco-Conscious Christmas from Suitcase Magazine absolutely spoke to us and our sustainably made alpaca bed socks were in good company with 15 other lovely brands promoting conscious Christmas presents. This tasselled pouch from Shiv Textiles is the perfect size for 2020 essentials: phone, purse, keys, mask and hand sanitiser and made entirely from yarn destined for landfill.

Championing UK’s best artisans, creators and designers Town and Country Magazine’s Ultimate Guide to the Best British Christmas Gifts featured too many amazing British brands (and we know of at least two items that have been pushed under certain husbands’ noses….. a Katie Scott candle by Polkra and an equiste pair of Jaipur Jammies !) but this de-stressing treat from Bamford is what some lucky friends will find under the tree this year.

Lucia Ferigutti from Boat International has been dreaming of new adventures in 2021 and has complied a beautiful collection of The Best Christmas Gifts for Explorers. Nothing transports you to foreign climes and adventurous memories like a scent does and this Penhaligon’s Cairo Eau de Parfum with notes of sandalwood, saffron and rare damascena rose is perfect to evoke desert nights.
