Back at work for the New Year? To get you back into that “rearing to go feeling”, we’ve picked ten things that will give your New Year a boost.
Violet organiser from Temperley for Filofax
Seems so obvious but you can’t start the year in style without a stylish organiser. We love this violet leather pocket organiser from Temperley for Filofax. It’s small, compact but will hold all your notes and appointments. Priced at £135.
Sonnet red fountain pen with gold trim from Parker
Naturally, with a brand new organiser in tow, you’ll want a great pen. This Sonnet red fountain pen with a gold trim from Parker has that timeless classic feel to it. And with gold plating on the nib and trim, you know it’s designed to last. Priced at £75.
Available from Pen Heaven
Tarte Au Citron luxe quartet from Laura Mercier
Make room for a little me-time this year with this indulgent quartet from Laura Mercier. The Tarte Au Citron luxe set contains bath honey, shower scrub, soufflé crème and body mist, allowing you to get thoroughly relaxed in a home spa. Priced at £55.
New show piece from Saatchi Art
Changes to the home can be something small, like a new fragrance, or something big, like this show piece from Saatchi Art. This one, Valegro ll by Lindsay Robertson, is priced at $3,250 but there are many other beautiful pieces on the online art gallery. Oh, and they offer an art advisory service too.
YOGA 3 Pro from Lenovo
January might be a good time to ditch your old and slow laptop and trade up to the YOGA 3 Pro from Lenovo. It’s one of the slimmest and most flexible laptops out there and with a touch screen, it’s great as a tablet too. Prices from £1,299.99.
Professional whole fruit power juicer from Andrew James
Juicing is in, whether you believe in detoxing or not. This professional whole fruit power juicer from Andrew James makes a great investment for juicing as not only can it process whole fruits, it’s also easy to clean. Priced at £99.95.
Kindle Unlimited from Amazon
One of the things that we’d like to do more of in 2015 is reading. For that, we think Amazon’s new Kindle Unlimited service is a wonderful option. You won’t find every single book out there but 600,000 is a great start. And you don’t need a Kindle – it works on any device. Priced at £7.99 per month.
UP24 from Jawbone
Getting fit might not be your New Year’s resolution but if it is, it might be worth investing in an UP24 bracelet from Jawbone. It promises to track everything from how you eat to how you sleep and, along with its handy app, helps you to set goals and achieve them. Priced at £99.95.
Large Ibiza leather tote from Jil Sander
If you’re starting a new job this year a new bag that says “I mean business” makes a small addition to your new wardrobe. This new season large Ibiza leather tote from Jil Sander measures up pretty well in that esteem. Priced at £1,004.65.
Ladies’ Fragrance Collection from Penhaligon’s
The new year is a great time to explore a new fragrance for yourself. Penhaligon’s Ladies’ Fragrance Collection is brilliant because in four little bottles you can experience their most popular fragrances before making the leap. Priced at £30.
