Nicky Clarke Salon

Do you know someone who could do with a day of relaxation and indulging in the VIP treatment or are you feeling a frazzled in the lead up to Christmas? Then we recommend that you book a day of luxury at the Nicky Clarke Salon either in London or at one of their regional salons.  Arrive and be greeted by champagne, indulge in a fabulous lunch, a massage, then a consultation and a cut by the man himself. Everyone always feels better after a change of style so indulge this season.


Tambour Medium Quartz Chronograph Lovely Cup Watch by Louis Vuitton

Christmas shopping can be stressful but thankfully nothing marks a special occasion or exudes more style than a Louis Vuitton watch. We have found the perfect style to fit with woman of all ages; the Quartz Chronograph Lovely Cup Watch is an ideal gift as it combines high fashion with practicality. The watch is available in an array of colours and you will find it near impossible not to find one that suits your special someone.



Photo Album by Life in a Book

Here at Poised we firmly believe in giving people presents that they will remember, and that is why we are recommending a photo album put together by Life in a Book for £325. Unlike the usual stress of putting something like this together, Life in a Book design and put together your photo album, all you need to do is select the pictures, approve their order and they send it to you when it’s complete. Immortalise your favourite moments.



Fortnum and Mason – Truly Scrumptious Truffles

An evening of truffles might sound a bit peculiar, but we firmly believe that Fortnum and Mason have created at truly unique event this holiday season. Between the 7th and 13th December they are hosting a fantastic evening in their Gallery restaurant which includes champagne, a four course meal celebrating the truffle, as well as a brief talk and some cooking tips. This is the ideal gift for a cooking fanatic or if you are looking for an elegant evening of phenomenal food this Christmas.



Imperial Hamper by Fortnum and Mason

Christmas is the time to share and at Poised that means experimenting with something new and special whilst you’re surrounded by your loved ones. Sounding like a nice picture? Then head to Fortnum and Mason and pick up their £5000 Imperial Hamper which is packed with taste explosions ranging from Cristal to Caviar to Foie Gras. This will make either a perfect gift for someone or it can be the perfect meal to wake up to on Christmas morning. Go on treat yourself.



Hotel Break – Pennyhill Park

The stress of Christmas holidays can take its toll, either you’re out shopping or working frantically, so what could be better than a trip to Pennyhill Park in Surrey. They offer a luxury holiday experience: you can stay the night in their sumptuous suites, stroll through the grounds, or if you are just looking for a day out, then spend the time in their exclusive Michelin star restaurant. We firmly believe that indulgence is necessary every now and then.



Dinner in the Dark – Dans Le Noir

At Poised we’re always looking to find you the newest experiences and we think we’ve found one you won’t have tried before. Farringdon’s Dans Le Noir is a new breed of restaurant where you eat in total darkness, you are served by blind waters and you experience an exclusive social and sensory evening. We do recommend you do not to wear your absolute finest Gucci or Versace outfit just in case you spill!



Cooking Masterclass – Jean Christophe Novelli cookery school

Preparing for a dinner party or looking to try something new this holiday season? Then we recommend spending some time at the Jean Christophe Novelli cookery school where you can brush up on your skills and learn some new ones to dazzle your friends.

These classes book up quickly so make sure you don’t miss out.



3 Day Christmas Break – Stapleford Park

Fancy a change from the usual hectic Christmas this year? We have searched for the perfect Christmas weekend getaway and we have found Stapleford Park in the heart of the Leicestershire countryside. Enjoy a luxury 3 day break from the 25th-27th December (£292.50pp). Arrive and enjoy cocktails and canapés, on Christmas morning wake up to a champagne breakfast, indulge a lavish feast and settle down with a buffet. If that wasn’t good enough then finish off the weekend with an exclusive dinner dance.  



Christmas Hotel Package – Athenaeum Hotel

Ice skating in Hyde Park, complimentary mulled wine and hot chocolate all within a luxury hotel setting, does this seem like a dream? Well after digging around for some fantastic deals this season this can become a reality at London’s Athenaeum Hotel. For £478 (based on 2 adults and 2 children sharing) between 16th and 31st December take a break from the Christmas build up and let yourself and your family relax in style. The kids can enjoy the library/playroom whilst you indulge in lavish style.
