All we want for Christmas: the Soho House holiday wishlist

Everything on the Soho House team’s holiday wishlist | Soho House

It’s gifting season – here are the things the members of our content team would like to be surprised with this month

Friday 2 December   By Soho House

Whether you celebrate the holidays or not, one thing we can all get behind is an excuse for a great gift. No matter the occasion, gifting is a love language and here on the Soho House content team, it’s one we understand well – be it as givers or recipients. 

With new (and classic) drops across fashion, beauty and homeware that we’re keen to get our hands on our wish lists are growing by the day – with Soho Home, Cowshed and Soho Skin doing a lot of the heavy lifting. From artisan lamps inspired by our House in Rome to a new bar cabinet for your hosting duties by way of the perfect silk pyjamas and robe to lounge around in over the end of year break, here are the top items on our dream list this gifting season.

Gemma Boner, Membership Content Director 

Le Chiquito Noeud Bag, £570, Jacquemus 
This little beauty is impractical but who cares (and if my husband is reading this – you literally can't go wrong with anything from Jacquemus).

The Garret Boucle Armchair, from £1,441, Soho Home 
My heart belongs to the Garret. It’s one of those coveted pieces that I just can’t stop thinking about – this year it needs to be mine. 

Hockley Servers, set of two, from £38, Soho Home 
We always have a house full of guests over the festive period and these serving spoons would be perfect for the carb fest that will be on our dining table (bring me the mac and cheese sides, please).

Teo Van Den Broeke, Editorial Director 

Men’s Loafer with Horsebit, £865,  Gucci 
Because who wouldn’t want a shearling horsebit loafer from one of Alessandro Michele’s last collections for Gucci? 

Rene Wall Light, from £179, Soho Home 
I need four of these for my new conservatory, ta. 

Window by Karl Bielik, from £8,445, Soho Home
All I want for Christmas is colour! Shape! Form!

Camilla Weston, Group Head of Creative Operations 

Bea Bongiasca Ring, £430, Net-A-Porter 
I love this ring – it’s fun and colourful, as opposed to the usual plain gold or silver, which means it’s perfect for offsetting all the dark tones I wear in the winter. 

Ultrasonic Aroma Diffuser & Trio of Discovery Oils, from £81, Soho Home
With three different scents to suit your mood, I’d like this to keep my home filled with the most delicious smells year-round. 

Detox Mask, £60, Soho Skin 
The perfect pre- and post-party mask, I want this to help get me through all the Christmas events I have planned. It really does leave my skin looking fresher and brighter.

Jonathan Heaf, Chief Content Officer 

Adidas x Gucci Gazelle Sneaker, £575, Gucci 
Because Christmas is always a good excuse for new trainers. 

Kingsley Bar Cabinet, Grey Norway Marble, from £4,246, Soho Home 
I’ve wanted this bar cabinet ever since I first saw it at Soho House Nashville.

Marena Desk, £1,696, Soho Home 
If I’m going to work from home occasionally, it has to be in style.

The Elder Statesman Cashmere Beanie, $295, Net-A-Porter
My winter wardrobe often gets overshadowed – literally – by a long black coat, so a colourful beanie might well be the ticket to alleviating that. I also love that the Elder Statesman hand dyes their textiles in their downtown LA studio. Plus, ethical production and 100% cashmere? That’s luxury to me. 
Bianco Bergamot & Mandarin Zest Candle, from $145, Soho Home 
Nothing completes a vibe like the perfect scent. Plus, Soho Home’s marble candles make the perfect vase for winter flowers once the candle burns through.

Berega Rust Silk Robe, from $293, Soho Home 
As the temperature drops, more and more time is spent in my Brooklyn apartment. This robe is the perfect antidote to frigid sweatpants-clad days.

Andrew Diprose, Editorial Creative Director 

Lady A Novelty Bauble, from £64, Soho Home 
Oh my goodness, we love a novelty bauble in our house. More is more! And a miniature bottle of Lady A rendered in hand-painted glass would set off our over-laden pine a treat.

Salomon XT-4, White Lunar Rock & Night Sky, £165, End Clothing 
I've been eyeing these Salomon XT-4’s for way too long. They’d be a way of bringing that Gorpcore wilderness vibe I love to the decidedly urban 180 Strand. I've dropped hints to friends, bored my family. Now Santa's my only hope.

Tisbury Side Table, $995, Soho Home
I badly need this marble side table. There's the perfect spot next to my sofa and I've nowhere to put my Negroni while I watch Gardeners World!

Awake Body Oil, $38, Cowshed
I like giving and receiving gifts that people may not buy themselves but are guaranteed to get use and will elevate your day-to-day. Once the temperature drops and the air is dry, I need all the help keeping my skin hydrated. This oil not only adds moisture but is soothing to tired muscles and has an amazing scent.

Maria Alpaca Throw in Olive, from $375, Soho Home 
This is the more luxurious version of my last point: I don’t always think to buy a throw for myself so I would love this incredibly soft alpaca fabric as a gift. I can’t think of anything the olive tone wouldn’t go with, making it an equally valuable decor piece. 

Martin Ali Diamond Cut Baby ID Bracelet, $450,
I already own a couple of Martine Ali pieces, but I always love mixing and matching them depending on my mood or the occasion. Pieces I've purchased years ago come back into rotation, and it's always fun to see how they play with newer styles. And while the brand is known for some of its heavier pieces, I've always gravitated to their more subtle styles, which I can then stack against each other.

Sagal Mohammed, Editor UK, EU & RoW

Prada Puffer, £1,805, 
I won’t be getting any winter sun this year, which means I need this puffer to survive the lead-up to spring – there’s no other way. 

Chancery 20 Piece Dinnerware Set, £374, Soho Home
Now that I’m officially in my dinner-party era, one of my goals for 2023 is to host friends – but only with the right dinnerware.

Lucio Murano Table Lamp, from £846, Soho Home
Usually, I’m quite the minimalist but there’s something about this artisan lamp that I’m obsessed with. It reminds me of a summer’s night in Italy, and I’m all about romanticising the little things.

James Williams, Entertainment Director

Babington Wreath, £270, Soho House 
Bring some festive magic to your front door, and a smile to even your Grinch-iest of neighbours. This wreath is a total showstopper.

24/7 Treatment, £72, Soho Skin
This has rapidly become a staple of my night-time routine. I apply after cleansing my face and sleep in it overnight. I swear I’ve noticed a real difference – and not just on the mornings after a later-night-than-I-should’ve-had night.

Gucci Eyewear, £235, Net-A-Porter
As someone who’s recently discovered I need reading glasses (joy) these Gucci frames would be practical, stylish and somewhat help soften the blow of my rapid descent into middle age.

Anastasiia Fedorova, Editorial Associate 

Lounge Long Sleeve Open Back Dress, £98, Skims
I’m hoping for a seasonal trade-off from the classic little black dress to this very BDE open-back maxi. It works in so many settings, from lounging at home or a date night to a nice brunch – I’ll just need to pick appropriate footwear.

Sylvia Table Lamp from £234, Soho Home
There is something incredibly satisfying about this compact table tamp with its glass orb set in antique brass. The base is crafted from solid Rosso Levanto marble, meaning that every piece has a unique veining pattern. It is also perfect piece from which to start a collection and Soho Home has an abundance of red marble items to mix and match, from coasters and wine coolers to coffee tables.

Berega Sage Silk Pyjamas, from £319, Soho Home
There is no better use of the holiday break than chilling at home in your PJs – and there’s no better way to do that than in this pure silk two-piece with a geometric Berega print, which nods to the tones used throughout Soho House Rome.

Leo Goddard, Editorial Art Director

MHL. Crewneck Utility Wool, Dark Natural, £185, Margaret Howell
It goes with everything and will get me through the darker months. Must-have!

Year 7 by Alec Doherty, £5,215, Soho Home
With his cheeky characters and primary colours, Alec's work always makes me smile. A dream piece for my wall, please.

Shave Gel, £20, Soho Skin 
I'm gifted with super sensitive skin so this ultra-soothing formula (prebiotics and aloe vera to name two) is perfect for me.
