The City of London Christmas Gift Guide 2022
The Whiskey Exchange Spirits Advent Calendar

There are few things more magical than Christmas in the City. Twinkling lights, hot chocolate and childhood glee abound. Father Christmas is officially on his way to the Square Mile, but he’s not the only one with top-notch presents in his sleigh.

At City Matters HQ we’re ready to pour the eggnog and dash out for some caroling. But first, it’s time to give the big man in red a run for his money.

We scoured the Square Mile for the most luxurious and unexpected products for you to choose from for your loved ones. From bundles for bookworms to homeware that will be the talk of the next Christmas party. Only one problem…they may be too good to give.
