CHRISTMAS SHOPPING IN LONDON: MARYLEBONE HIGH STREET

11/28/2015,

Just a short step away from Oxford Street, Marylebone has still the feel of a real neighbourhood. It is one of my favorite areas in London: Regent’s Park is amazing for families and Marylebone High Street is truly charming.

It is the ideal place for Christmas shopping in London with beautiful boutiques, excellent restaurants, traditional pubs and a farmer’s market every Saturday. Here is my personal “must-see”  list for great shopping:

James Taylor & Son: dedicated to making beautifully made, perfectly fitting bespoke and wonderful footwear.

Emma Bridgewater is a a British ceramics manufacturer founded in 1985. Her shop offers beautiful pottery made from cream-coloured earthenware and most of the production work is still done by hand.

I love that all the pieces are individually hand-decorated, so every one is slightly different.

Daunt Books: founded in 1990 it is  one of my favorite bookshops for travel books, maps and literature.

At the heart of the shop is a long, galleried main room which has as its focus a beautiful arched window partly glazed with stained glass.

The Little White Company:  at their beautiful shop you can discover a range of products for babies, girls & boys, including toys, clothing and furniture.

I really liked their  Christmas jumpers and pure-cotton festive nightwear.

Please, also do not forget to stop at  Oxfam. They have a great selection of second hand books.

Just beside Oxfam you can discover and shop at Fresh: they offer a complete product range of skin care, perfumes and fragrances, makeup, cosmetics, hair care, candles and soaps.

The decoration of their shop is original and stunning.

Kusmi tea is a great shop for teas. They also offer accessories, gifts and assortments.

Don’t forget to stop at La Portegna, a Spanish handmade Travel accessories & shoes with timeless sunny style.

Their leather briefcases are on my wish list, but regrettably out of my budget.

And you can end your shopping day with a sweet stop at Rococo Chocolates, where you can taste their international award-winning couture chocolates and artisan bars.
