Steph’s Holiday Wishlist – and Ops Gift Ideas

Ops&Ops gift card

Anything related to the Fab Four makes it on to my wishlist and this just-released 7in-gem, is a must for fans of the Beatles’ early days. Recorded in Paris in July 64, it features eight songs from their regular live set of the time. A fun cover pic too.

Our chums Tatty Devine, who made the pulls for our clutch purses, have done a collab with the Bowie Foundation. This Ziggy Suit necklace will work a charm for lovers of TD’s art jewellery and the great man.

Melitta’s Aromaboy® filter coffee machine is our new favourite kitchen gadget. Mini in size, less than 8in tall and just 5in wide, it’s ideal for the smallest of countertops and right up our retro street in colour and style. It also makes a knockout cup of Joe.

Mabel Sheppard’s love of colour and vintage designs go hand-in-hand (!) with our design sensibilities. Her Red Leather Lightning Bolt Gloves add a seasonal blush for winter wear and are a perfect match for our Lipstick red No10 flats.

For a unique gift that will last for ever, you can’t go wrong with a signed piece of artwork. We’ve loved Swedish artist Petra Borner since we first met, at an Ops event, and this Tillsammans Together print is top of my picks.

No colour says holiday season like red and we’ve got you covered. Twice. No17 Ruby metallic or No10 Lipstick Red straddle going out and staying in no matter your celebrations.

Our clutch bags also come into their own this time of year with travel and parties on the horizon – transport toiletries, flat pack for when you arrive or carry as a night-out purse.

And if you’re not sure or want to give a hint to someone? Go for a Gift Card, starting from £25. We can send electronically or by Royal Mail – order by Wednesday 20 December for guaranteed special delivery.
