The Myself Gift Guide

This January, it's time to concentrate on that special someone in your life who may have overlooked during the festivities last season: you. Inspired by our Piccadilly windows of wisdom with their unique words of encouragement, we are very much of the mind that this is the time to put yourself first. Because no one deserves a reward quite like you do.

 

Whether it's a bottle from our celebrated Wine Cellar or something delicious from the Fortnum's Food Hall, we're here to help you make the most of giving yourself the ultimate gift.

 

Find Happiness Within

 

Our hampers are cherished the world over as the ultimate joy-filled gift, and our Piccadilly Hamper in particular is the perfect treat for yourself and those you choose to share all the goodies inside with. Just like all our hampers, it's brimming with delicious things you're certain to love. 

 

Your Year to Sparkle

 

Speaking of staving off the January blues, what could be a better remedy than something to toast with. Another tea innovation, our Sparkling Teas are our zero to low alcohol tipples made for times of celebration. An effervescent alternative to Champagne, it's tea but not as you know it.

 

You Can Brew It

 

Tea is not just a drink at Fortnum's - it's a way of life. It's a secret to no one that it's something we're extremely passionate about, which is why we've been conjuring up innovative blends for centuries. Our Cold Brew Infusions are summer joy in a cup (or water bottle), and perfect for brightening up your days of January mizzle. 

 

Practice Winefulness

 

There's nothing as important as taking care of your wine, body and soul, and our Argentinian Malbec, Chakana is a good place to start when it comes to wine. A must for lovers of rich ripe reds, our organic Argentinian Malbec offers the richness you would expect from the region, but with a wonderful freshness that provides balance. But if you're looking for something whiter or with a bit more fizz, our Wine Cellar is the best place to start.

 

Live, Laugh, Lossus

 

Mightiest of all the biscuits, the Lossus dynasty can't be beaten when it comes to size. And recently they had a new member join the family - the Gingerlossus, their fieriest addition, made with dark chocolate and chewy whole stem ginger pieces for some extra kick. They're the ideal choice for any teatime heatseekers. But no matter what kind of dunking companion you're seeking, you're certain to find it at Fortnum's. 

 

Keep Your Eyes on the Pies

 

A visit to the Fortnum's Food Hall - whether here or in-store - will always be the perfect exercise in self care. And while there is an endless selection of delicious things to try, its most celebrated landmark might just be our simply iconic Scotch Eggs. An original Fortnum's recipe for 300 years, we've since brought the world bacon and truffle varieties as well as a vegan iteration. Our pies are just as hearty too, enveloped in the crumbliest, tastiest pastry and filled with everything from pork to venison. Reward yourself with something as scrumptious as these this January. 

 

Take the Bath Less Chosen

 

We understand. It's colder, greyer, the days are shorter and the Christmas warmth has faded. However, creating a warming, calming setting at home to help you relax is the perfect way to reward your hard work and attend to your needs. Created especially for Fortnum’s, these luxurious bath soaps in our Bath Truffle Soap Gift Box are rich in natural moisturising oils and have a subtle fragrance.

 

Let Your Light Shine

 

You may know us best for our extraordinary wickers and delicious Scotch Eggs, but the story of Fortnum's has a slightly more surprising origin. Back in the 1700s, Queen Anne insisted on having new candles every day, and her entrepreneurial footman - William Fortnum - had the idea of selling the spare wax. By 1707, William Fortnum's enlightened sideline had melted down into enough to leave royal service and start a business with his landlord Hugh Mason. Today, our collection includes artisan candles, diffusers and accessories from only the finest perfumiers. Our Four Seasons Rose Petal Candle is a particular highlight, a fresh candle inspired by our Rose Petal Jelly that will illuminate your home with a soft warm glow and fill any room with its sweet notes of Bulgarian rose, Chilean bergamot, violet leaves and fresh rhubarb. Oh, and to light it - we have our very own Matches.
