2013 Summer Collection


Welcome to our latest collection Welcome to some highlights from Gift Library’s latest collection. I’m not ashamed to admit that one of the main reasons for starting Gift Library was to indulge my love of shopping. And that has to be a love of anyone who joins the team too. But not just any old shopping. We’re only interested in the sort that finds the most beautiful and the most indulgent: quite simply, the absolute best. Applying that talent to Gift Library has taken us around the world in search of that extra something. It’s all very well to give a gift. It’s quite something else to give something that takes your breath away, and I hope that everything you see in these pages makes you look again, even if just for a moment. If it has that effect on you, imagine what it would feel like receiving something like that as a surprise. That’s the idea anyway. From underwater boys’ toys to silk pyjamas, from Steiff pugs to deluxe dog beds, the only real challenge is giving them away to someone else. Thankfully the Gift Library team are on hand to do just that – we’ll give advice on what to choose and we’ll make sure it gets to the lucky recipient exquisitely wrapped and as quickly as possible. Finally, these pages are just a taster of what we have to offer. If you don’t see the right thing here check out our website to find even more to entice. Sort out all those summer wedding, birthday and holiday gifts with none of the strife and all of the style. We’ve had great fun finding these treasures, I hope you enjoy them too.

“Caroline Stanbury’s site caters for high-end gifts of the sort of cashmere and crystal varieties we’d all love to receive.” Vogue, November 2012

FOR HOME 16

Finding a gift for someone’s home when they’ve got inimitable and impeccable taste is everyone’s nightmare. Our role as seekers of all things stylish goes into overdrive here and we think we’ve done a very good job from home and garden to beach. So if it’s a croquet set, it’s chic and unusual; if it’s a fire pit, it’s a barbecue as well; and if it’s a rug, well it’s Missoni of course. You thought they had everything? Think again.

FOR PETS 32

Our gifts for pets don’t even get a look in if Buster hasn’t tried, tested and approved them first. And if they survive his rigorous testing, both from a stylistic and a practical point of view, then they’re in. We’ve got gifts for pets that even the most spoilt dog will relish, not to mention their owners. Take the travel blanket, for example. Not only does it solve that tricky dinner party dilemma of whether to take the blighters or not, it keeps the dog happy away from home without compromising the style stakes too. Or the Valley of Dolls inspired Puppy Uppers canisters from J Adler: who knew pets could accessorise so well?
