 to do before the holidays, and so little time. But we’re almost there. Need a pick-me-up? Treat yourself to an infrared facial, or pack it all in and get away for one last break before the family time begins. Otherwise, if you’re in full-on shopping mode, we’ve got some personalised gifts for you – the Veuve is remarkably quick (we just bought two) and the swim trunks may be too late for Christmas delivery, but we’ve always been partial to a NYE gift. Also on our radar this week is getting in to Din Tai Fung, and today’s In Conversation with Gridiron’s Colin McSherry and Liam Davy contains a wealth of great London spots – a long, boozy lunch at Casse-Croûte on Bermondsey St. sounds like just the trick. Enjoy!  
Snow, and then some
The rise of the ‘do everything’ holiday means après-ski just got a whole lot more interesting. From surfing off the rugged west coast of Canada to snowboarding in California, these trips have got it covered.

Where do you go to celebrate?
Liam: I absolutely love a long, boozy lunch at Casse-Croûte on Bermondsey St.
Colin: The Hoxton Hotel. Always a good vibe, and you’re assured a late drink.

The Weekend
There are only a couple of weekends left before Christmas, so we say make the most of it with some gift shopping at Maltby Street’s Christmas Lates and the Independent Label Market, and then treat yourself to an alternative Christmas lunch at Ikoyi.

Personalise It
We’re going mad for monograms
There’s something nice about getting a bespoke gift, so we’re saying amp up your Christmas with something personal, whether it’s PJs, a bottle of Veuve Clicquot, an LV passport cover, or a Ferrero Rocher tree. P.S. If, like us, you love the swim shorts – they have a three week lead time, so we say order them for a NYE getaway somewhere warm.
