Food and drink
Personalisation is a great way to show that you’ve put some care and attention into selecting a gift for your loved one. There’s plenty to choose from at Selfridges Birmingham, including personalised Reese’s chocolate peanut butter (£6.99) and a Lindt chocolate teddy with a special ribbon bearing the name of the lucky recipient (£14.99). Or take it up a notch with Moet, which will have a calligraphy robot in store to recreate a message or a drawing beautifully engraved straight onto the bottle.
For the ultimate foodie gift, Selfridges Birmingham luxury gift boxes and hampers are a must. The limited-edition Wolseley Christmas Hamper (£349) is a memorable gift that brings a taste of the legendary cafe-restaurant to your home. Enjoy a bottle of The Wolseley Medoc 2011, The Wolseley Sancerre 2016, as well as teas with silver-plated tea strainer and caddy, jam, marmalade, hot chocolate, truffles and a copy of ‘Breakfast at The Wolseley’ by AA Gill.

Pringle and Ellery are tempting party-goers with exaggerated sleeves and bold silhouettes.
For a rock ‘n’ roll Christmas, glam it up with some of the world’s leading beauty brands. From skincare that will provide TLC after a night out to dramatic make-up for the ultimate party, Selfridges Birmingham’s renowned beauty hall on Level 3 is the place to head to for the best selection - and there’s plenty of exclusive products and limited editions to choose from.
With the over indulgence of Christmas cocktails and parties, Estée Lauder’s limited edition Night Repair (£76-£93), Re-Nutriv Diamond Crème (£280) and Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift (£125) will keep the skin looking youthful all through the party season.
