If you’re struggling to think of what gifts to buy for your loved ones this Christmas, look no further. We have put together a little gift guide to help make your present buying easier this Christmas.
For our men, we recommend one of our most iconic garments, Dorset. Made from the finest Merino wool, Dorset is a long sleeved shirt with fashioned shoulders and rib trims for an uncompromising fit. Our accessories make ideal stocking fillers and our Hanover hat with matching gloves Sutton are a sure win. Made from a luxurious fibre mix of 80% super-fine wool, 10% silk and 10% cashmere, this matching set is the ultimate in luxury. Our Seaboots socks are lovingly hand made in Great Britain and feature hand linked toes. Seaboots are a great way to jazz up any outfit this Christmas.
For our ladies, our long sleeved crew neck cardigan Amina is made from extra-fine Merino wool and is the perfect layer to dress up or down. Matching hat and gloves, Ronay and Sabbia feature a small button detail adding a feminine touch and making them a beautiful set. Look to Thymus for the perfect classic scarf in this season’s hottest colour Pinotage.

We’ve put together complimentary women’s pieces to help piece a complete look:
Nina our sleevless wrap style cardigan in bitter chocolate can be worn losely over your top or wrap it around snugly and tie with belt. Accessorise with ‘Eunice’ our tonal stripe scarf with contrast block of colour at both ends and ‘Careen’ our socks, which use the same stripe with contrast on heel and toe.
For a more formal look, try ‘Gracie’ over our scoop neck short sleeved sweater ‘Tottie’ for a chic twinset. Availble in black and winter white, you can add some colour to this outfit with ‘Sissy’, a vertical striped scarf which includes a winter white stripe to compliment the outfit. The perfect way to brighten up any cold, winter’s day.
Complimentary menswear pieces that make the perfect Christmas gift:
Alternatively, try new jacket style ‘Harding’ in a luxurious Merino/Cashmere blend. Teamed with ‘Richards’ underneath and ‘Taurus’ our merino wool hat, this is the perfect combination for keeping out the cold.
Made in Britain, all our garments go through 35 hand finishing processes to deliver the high level of quality seen in every product. Perfect for your loved ones, these gifts will stand the test of time and won’t be disgarded along with your ‘i will you use it one day’ foot spa and coffee makers!

(Now all I need is a santa’s little helper to wrap all the presents!) Order now to avoid dissapointment!
It’s freezing and Lea Mills looked absolutely beautiful this morning. The hills were dusted with frost and everything had a certain calm and stillness. One thing is for sure, winter is definately on the way and with it comes a sneek peak of the window display at our Flagship store on Brook Street.
We are over the moon with our glove Christmas tree and the staff in store have been struggling to keep their hands off. Our twinkly window display is decorated with clusters of baubles in sumptous tones of caramels, chocolate and charcoal. The gloves were knitted here in Matlock in various shades of green and sizes to create the prefect glove tree!
The rustle of Christmas is certainly upon us, with Christmas lights sparkling above and the jingle of Santa’s bells approaching. If you haven’t already had a chance to see the store, it’s definately worth a visit and you might be able to start some Christmas shopping whilst you’re down there too!
Black is undeniably the colour of choice when choosing a sophisticated, chic look. If you are unsure of what to wear to your Christmas functions’ this year, look no further. Our classic pieces including ‘Catkin’ and ‘Sandpiper’ will go beautifully with this season’s mid length skirt or high-waisted trousers. Our roll neck jumper ‘Catkin’ featured in The Times Magazine to wear alongside this season’s ‘it’ colour, caramel.
Another feature in November’s issue of Harpers Bazaar got us salivating here at John Smedley. ‘Geranium’ featured in the article, seen here in black showing how you can take this classic jumper and accessorize to create a truly spectacular look. A perfect way to wear your favourite little black jumper and sparkle at this year’s Christmas party.
