‘Tis the season to be jolly – and maybe panic slightly about Christmas shopping. But fear not: we’ve done the groundwork for you with our edit of gift ideas for the fur fans in your life – for kids from one to ninety-two – which we will be posting over the next few days. (Self-gifting is perfectly acceptable as well, of course.) First up: our guide to gifts for her, in sumptuous fox and mink.


The VSLBD (Very Special Little Black Dress)
Velvet and fur ruled the AW16 runways, and this gently sculpted Givenchy dress with mink sleeves combines the best of both – very much in the sophisticated spirit of Hubert de Givenchy himself. Shop here

A forever coat
Ageless, timeless, flawless: The Row’s mink coat is now and forever. Shop here

Clever knitwear
Knitwear is a Christmas go-to but this Moncler cable knit crew neck makes things interesting with its sumptuous, detachable silver fox collar with toggle fastening that allows it to be worn separately to elevate any coat or dress. Shop here

An alternative to the pearl necklace
Mary Katrantzou’s coral and black mink necklace has the power to take a top or dress from low-key to statement chic in two seconds flat. A fresh take on a neat strand of pearls. Shop here

A symbol of love
A piece of fashion history (from Hedi Slimane’s final show for Saint Laurent and inspired by Monsieur Saint Laurent’s 1971 green fox coat), this heart-shaped fox chubby is an all-out declaration of love. Cue Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You. Shop here

The fashion dream biker jacket
What to give the outerwear obsessive who has everything from a silk bomber to a full-length intarsia fur coat? A biker jacket, re-imagined by Burberry in pink mink, of course. It’s a game-changer. Shop here

Gloves with a twist
Forget the notion that gloves are an unimaginative buy. People are guaranteed to lose one at some point and will be grateful to get an extra pair. And once you bring mink pompoms and cashmere lining into the picture, gloves are hardly boring. Shop here

A bag charm with charm
Fendi’s bag charms are endless fun – we love the ABC fox charms for adding a personal twist to any bag. Shop here

A versatile cape
This wine-coloured fox-trimmed cashmere cape from Gorski is the height of relaxed glamour – throw it over everything from daytime denim or leather trousers to evening looks. Shop here
