7* Life’s luxury Christmas guide 2020 part 2

At 7 Star Life we believe in living your most fabulous life at all times, pandemic or not, and Christmas is another excuse to go all out and drape your life in glorious levels of pomp and merriment.

To make your festive shenanigans that little bit more joyous, we’ve created this handy guide for creating a 7 Star Life Christmas to remember..

 


Tattinger Champagne

What better way to get into the festive mood than opening a bottle of the finest Champagne? Tattinger have always been a firm favourite of the 7 Star Life team for its refreshing fizz, citrusy notes and all round exquisiteness. We also love their smaller half bottle size for slipping into the luckiest stockings over the fireplace….

 

Pines and Needles Christmas Tree

A firm favourite of celebs in the know and royalty, Pines and Needles sell a variety of natural Christmas trees online or from one of their many stores around London. Choose a lavish Norway Spruce tree for decorating your outdoor spaces like a BOSS, or opt for a Nordmann Fir which will retain its needles and leave your home smelling delightfully of pine. All trees can be conveniently delivered to your own home with a pick up service if necessary and a range of Christmas decorations are available to suit even the fussiest elves this festive period.

Sharpham red wine and cheese gift box

Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without fine cheese and wine, so why not treat a beloved cheese lover, or yourself to this delightful red wine and cheese box from Sharpham wines? Containing a bottle of silky smooth Pinot Noir and their award winning brie, this gift of cheesy merriment is a must for foodies and wine buffs with excellent taste.

Melitta EPOS coffee maker 

Perfect for making those restaurant quality coffees after a lavish festive feast, the Melitta EPOS coffee maker features the first-ever pour over system with an integrated grinder. It’s swanky open filter allows you to view (and smell) the fragrant brewing process, whilst the built in hotplate keeps your coffee warm for up to 40 minutes – ideal for those “lose your phone in the fridge” kind of days.

A truly exquisite, cutting edge device, this coffee making game changer of a machine will also make the Christmas present of dreams for your caffeine-loving loved ones.

 

Traditional Christmas treat hamper by Hampers.com

Founded in 1979, hampers.com have been putting together bundles of pleasing treats for longer than many of us have been alive, so surely they know what they’re doing. Their traditional Christmas treat hamper will make most people smile – especially those rather partial to sugary goodies. The box contains 4 luxury mince pies, a mini brandy Christmas pudding, a festive gingerbread caramel spread, a tempting dark chocolate bar adorned with freeze-dried raspberries and award winning gingerbread latte gourmet popcorn by Joe and Seph’s. We really wish it could be Christmas everyday with this box of merriment.

 

PS-929 party speakers by SHARP

Christmas parties with your chosen households this year need a speaker with the kind of wow factor that reminds you what being in a club feels like. After all the humdrum and worries of this disastrous year, what could be better than dancing with your nearest and dearest to your favourite tunes courtesy of a glitzy speaker complete with flashing LED disco lights, strobe, super base effect and mic? Get two and pair together for true wireless stereo sound – the neighbours will have to get used to it.

The best bit? it’s portable so come summer next year you can take it with you for an impromptu dance in the countryside with your favourite raver.

 

Coombe Farm organic fresh turkey 

Love it or loathe it, Christmas Day wouldn’t be right without a plump bird sat on the middle of the table, and we’re not talking about drunken aunt Susan. Cheesy festive dad jokes aside, Coombe Farm’s organic turkeys are famous for their juicy meat and optimum quality and at 7 Star Life we are massive fans of all their quality organic and grass fed options.

This renowned organic farm brand only rears traditional bronze organic turkeys – an old fashioned breed known for their great flavour and even coverage of meat. By slow growing the turkeys and hanging the birds for 10 days ensures succulent meat without any shrinkage in the oven.

Ashling Park sparkling wine gift set

Perfect for celebrating any remaining smidgeons of joy this Christmas or New Year, this gift set of English sparkling wines includes one bottle of Ashling Park Cuvée NV and one of Ashling Park Sparkling Rosé 2014. Both wines are renowned in wine-loving circles for their crisp, refreshing flavours, even winning a Trophy at the WineGB Awards 2020.

Wanting to give a unique gift this year to your wine-adoring loved ones? Why not treat them to not only a fetching gift set featuring these two special wines, but an actual wine tasting session and tour of the scenic Ashling Park vineyard in pretty West Sussex.

Christmas delivery guaranteed till the 21st December so make sure you get your orders in now, or prepare for feelings of immense wine-related FOMO.

 

For the Gin Lover – VII Hills Italian Dry Gin 

Booze-loving critics around the world have rated VII Hills as their No 1 Italian dry gin brand, so 7 Star Life was intrigued to find out why. After receiving a sleek bottle in the post and concocting a fancy glass of ice cold gin and tonic complete with Sicilian lemon garnish, we can quite happily confirm that this gin is in fact a creation of the special Gin Gods.  Exclusively handcrafted in Italy, this unique spirit is made with seven fragrant botanicals foraged from the hills that surround Rome.

Perfect for making festive Italian Negronis, this perfectly balanced spirit has a unique body, strength and flavour that is slightly bittersweet with hints of blood orange and a herbal, almost Christmassy aroma. Chin Chin!
