It is always nice to receive gifts, but there is something rather special about picking a gift for a loved one and seeing the look on their face when they open it.
But what if you could give a gift knowing you would not only make someone smile, but you were supporting British manufacturing and helping to minimise the effects of fast fashion?
Well, luckily for you, gifting British-made clothing and accessories has never been easier thanks to the luxury pieces we design and make at Teddy Edward.
Because we are a proudly British fashion brand, we put everything in to ensuring that that we design, source, and manufacture all our items right here in Great Britain. This helps us to reduce our carbon footprint, support local employment and skills, provide fair wages, and do our bit towards reducing the environmental impact of the fashion industry.
So, if you are looking for a gift that is both luxurious and rooted in British provenance, look no further! Be it for a birthday, Christmas, Father’s Day or just because, here are some ideas to inspire you to give the gift of Great British fashion.
Whether you want to purchase a gift for your partner, mum, daughter, or even friend, we have lots of choice when it comes to treating that special lady in your life.
First up we have a classic option that is always a crowd pleaser – Phoebe, our cashmere scarf! Spun by talented artisans at a 150-year-old cashmere mill in Scotland and rippled using hand-worked teasels, you won’t find a scarf softer and more elegant than Phoebe. The ideal accessory to banish the cold in style, this scarf can be worn multiple ways, dependent on outfit choice. So, why not ensure your loved one is wrapped up in a slice of luxury this season by gifting chic and versatile Phoebe?
What could a girl possibly love more than being gifted a bag? Our new and exclusive Jenni mini backpack makes for the ultimate companion for country jaunts and city strolls. Featuring a flap-over closure with clip fastening, spacious main compartment with drawstring and even a handy phone pocket, this is the ultimate accessory for someone who craves both opulence and convenience. Jenni has been crafted by artisans using luxuriously soft British suede and hand-embossed ostrich effect leather, making this staple piece a classy addition to any wardrobe.
If you are after a present for someone who is a little more laid back, how about gifting them our Daisy lounge socks? Made from a 90% alpaca mix for the softest, slouchiest sock imaginable, Daisy is the ideal companion for chilly work-from-home days, or those lazy weekends on the sofa. Available in three beautiful colours, why stop at buying that lucky recipient just one pair? Get them the whole set and ensure they are never anything short of cosy.
Think the man in your life is impossible to buy for? Think again! With our selection of luxury British-made clothing and accessories, finding him the perfect gift for any occasion is easy. And remember, Father’s Day is on 21st June so make sure you get your Dad a present he won’t forget.
If you are looking to gift something that not only looks great but is practical too, then consider our Alex baseball cap. Crated from hardwearing cotton, and designed with both style and comfort in mind, this cap is sure to get heads turning. The recipient will be able to keep the sun (or rain!) in check with the pre-curved visor, ventilation eyelets and closed, elasticated back which shapes comfortably to any head. So, whether on a day out in the country or a weekend break in the city, Alex is the ideal choice for that dapper look.
Know a man that always feels the cold? Our Scott luxury cashmere gloves would certainly make the ultimate gift! Woven in Scotland by talented artisans and spun from 100% cashmere wool, these super soft gloves are bound to keep chilly digits warm, whatever the weather. Coming in two stylish colours and featuring thick, ribbed cuffs, Scott exudes gentlemanly charm as well as providing maximum protection from the cold. For a warm and practical gift that will last through years of cold spells, choose Scott for the man in your life.
Finally, for a loved one who is an outdoorsy type, why not consider gifting our Lauderdale cushion sole socks? The perfect match for feet that love rambles in the valleys and hikes in the mountains, these hard-wearing, durable socks have been designed to effortlessly take the wearer on any adventure. Featuring a hand-linked toe seam, cushioned sole for unparalleled comfort and available in five colours, Lauderdale makes an eye-catching yet practical gift.
