The run up to Christmas this year is looking slightly different to how it normally would. We’re forgoing packed office parties for festive Zoom drinks and family reunions for scaled down socialising Something we’ve found helpful through all this change, is to focus on the simple pleasures in life.  

For any and all of these little luxuries, John Lewis & Partners is the one place we’re heading to right now. We all know how great the high street retailer is at nailing those festive ads, but it’s their thoughtful selection of perfect pick-me-ups that’s keeping us coming back this year. Their luxe loungewear offering not only includes great value sets from their own labels, but also a selection from brands that always top our list when recommending quality cosiness— Mint Velvet, Whistles & Hush, to name a few. 

Last year, John Lewis & Partners introduced an excellent capsule of party outfits to suit all occasions (you might remember our editors trying it all on). This year it’s back, although now full of throw-on pieces that deliver maximum impact with minimal effort— these are pieces getting us excited about dressing up again, if only for our own satisfaction. 

And, of course, it wouldn’t be a John Lewis & Partners Christmas without gifts a-plenty. We’re particularly lusting after the silk pillowcase, cashmere socks and Charlotte Tilbury lipstick (perfect for pepping yourself up for yet another Zoom meeting). 

Keep scrolling to shop our favourites from John Lewis & Partners’ new winter edits, for yourself or others— we won’t judge.

From silk pyjamas to cashmere tracksuit sets, John Lewis has the perfect items for a Christmas spent in front of box sets. 

Just because this year might be a little more low key doesn’t mean we can’t wear some sparkle too. This green sequin Whistles set is a real mood-lifter. 

John Lewis & Partners is our go-to place for gifting, and below we’ve put together our best bits from the beauty hall and accessories sections.
