It's back! The annual London Christmas Shopping Guide from The Daily Constitutional!
This year I'll be including museum gift shops and markets for gift ideas.
As well as gifts I'll be pointing you toward local London shops for the best in Christmas food and drink. Where relevant, I'll list the London Walks tour that finishes near the shop in question.
As usual, you can drop me a line with your own tips by emailing the usual address, by leaving a comment below or via Twitter.
Harvie & Hudson Shirtmaker
DC Editor Adam writes… Harvie and Hudson is the only remaining company still in sole ownership of the original families in the bespoke shirtmaking trade in Jermyn Street, London. Thomas George Harvie and George Frederick Hudson set up the business in 1949.
In the 1960s H&H revolutionsed Jermyn Street by branching out into vibrant colours and introducing their signature bold stripe.
And they are still going strong!
I always look forward to a trip to Harvie and Hudson, where I buy my waistcoats and I'm delighted to see they've started a nice line in snuff handkerchiefs, not so easy to acquire these days with the near extinction of the old school tobacconist.
We'll be passing by on my Village in Piccadilly tour today - meet 2.30pm at Piccadilly Circus tube (by Eros) and again later on my Fun Photography Walk – Christmas Lights Walk 7pm also at Piccadilly Circus tube (by Eros)
