It’s December, which means gifting season is in full swing. If you’ve yet to find the perfect gifts for your loved ones, look no further than our series of guides, helping you surprise the different people in your life with gifts that cater to their specific lifestyles and personalities. First up is the Soho city swisher. 

This is the person in your life who knows the streets of New York, London or Paris like the back of their hand. Spending most of their nights sipping Picantes at the Houses, making their way through the Cecconi’s menu and planning their next vacation, they’ve mastered the art of juggling a packed social calendar that fits in between their creative career – not to mention their weekly yoga and Pilates schedule. Life’s hectic, but they’re in control. They’re also incredibly picky, which makes gift buying quite the task – but that’s where we come in. 

Whether they need a new accessory for their dog, a suitcase for their constant travels or a hero skincare product to keep the effects of pollution at bay (hello, Soho Skin’s 24/7 Treatment), we know how to speak their language. So, here are 29 gift ideas that’ll please even the pickiest city swisher in your circle.
