Jigsaw Actually… Meet Laura, Graphic Designer

Christmas means being excessive with food and family, hilarity and happiness and glitter and glamour. Quaint and boozy, but equally British – I do Christmas in Surrey with my family and Boxing Day in London with my friends. In between, I do the Winterville in Clapham and ice skating outside Somerset House.

What is on your Christmas wishlist this year?

I’m terrible at writing Christmas lists, so I usually get given money towards travelling. This lets me justify my want for long weekend city breaks. On that note, I probably do need a new cabin suitcase; I dragged mine back from Gatwick Airport with no wheels on my last trip…

What is the best present you've ever received?

A beautiful vintage wooden chest. It’s great for storing old photos and keepsakes and I’ll hold onto it forever.

And the worst?

My granny bought me a pouch one year covered in cut-out photos of different cats chasing butterflies…it’s so bad that it’s great.

What is your favourite Christmas ballad?

It’s got to be “Fairytale of New York" by The Pogues! The perfect song for mulled wine fuelled dancing in the pub.

What are your top-tips for Christmas shopping?

Take notes of ideas you may have during the year, and don’t forget that sometimes homemade gifts are the best ones.

I like modern tailoring with a casual and refined element. This velvet suit is just that, and a little bit more. This Christmas I’d gift the watch to a close friend as it’s minimal but beautiful, and I think the resin ring would also make a nice stocking filler or Secret Santa present!
