Can a perfect Christmas date be possible? From the stone-sober park walks of 2020’s lockdown winter, it’s safe to say that the bar can only be raised this year. From the merry markets of Hampton Court to gliding through a neoclassical courtyard on ice, we’ve teamed up with Tiffany & Co. to give you our edit of the perfect dates this festive season.

The Nutcracker The Royal Ballet

The Nutcracker at The Royal Opera House

Sometimes there’s simply no need to reinvent the wheel, and you can’t go too wrong with The Nutcracker. Perhaps a tad intense for a first date ice-breaker, this sparkly performance is a perfect fourth or fifth. Expect Tchaikovsky’s Russian ballet matched to a story of magic on Christmas Eve.

Until 8 January 2022, tickets from £1-135.

The Barbican Noguchi Exhibition

Noguchi Exhibition at The Barbican

For those who eschew schmaltzy tradition and would rather go for more of a contemporary twist, a walk around the warm glowy lights of the Japanese-American sculptor Isamu Noguchi may do the trick. It’s a retrospective exhibition, spanning over 20 years of his career, featuring over 150 works.

Until 9 January 2022, tickets from £18.

The Londoner

Cocktails at The Londoner

Leicester Square’s dazzling new hotel, The Londoner, is the perfect spot for a cocktail a deux before heading out to see something at the West End. You’ll want to order their  Arrivée cocktail (a white watermelon and elderflower number), or their spin on a classic Negroni.

The Festive Fayre at Hampton Court

Festival Fayre at Hampton Court

For just one weekend in December, Henry VIII’s former pleasure palace is turning into a foodie’s dream. Expect churros, sausages and Christmas puddings amongst a plethora of unique gift stalls, all accompanied by the music of a jolly live band. If you have a penchant for the Tudors, aesthetics or just love food, Festival Fayre is for you.

3  – 5 December 2021, adult tickets from £23.30.

Ice Skating at Somerset House

It wouldn’t be Christmas without the involvement of some kind of ice skating. Glide across the famous neo-classical courtyard – decked out with wonderful decorations and a 40ft tall Christmas tree – whilst sipping on a winter tipple of your choosing. Fancy upping the tempo? Head there for one of the rinkside DJ takeovers.

Open until 16 January 2022, tickets from £11.

Coppa Club

Coppa Club

Cocoon yourself this Christmas with Coppa Club’s signature igloos. As well as their classic panoramic views of Tower Bridge, Coppa Club this year are popping up their bubbles in Putney too. Partnering with Laurent-Perrier this year, sip on some supremely good champagne, as well as a Christmas menu that promises to deliver on all the festive favourites.

Petersham Nurseries

Wreath Making at Petersham Nurseries

Feeling claustrophobic in the city? Head to Richmond’s garden of delights: Petersham Nurseries. The perfect cocktail of wholesome and craftiness, this date will make even the least arty of folk feel their creative zing unleashed. Embrace your inner forager and twist and bind together what the woodland has on offer – from festive berries to winter foliage.

Until 13 December, tickets from £150.

Choosing the right accessories for a range of occasions is effortless with Tiffany’s T1 collection. Building from the iconic ‘T’ motif, the collection is an edit of key styles in rose, white and yellow gold, set with Tiffany diamonds. The twinkling Christmas lights are the perfect double act for their fine jewellery design, designed for a woman who’s celebrating her own life, her goals and her accomplishments, for any occasion.

Encircling the wrist, finger or neck, the ‘T’ motif forms an unbroken circle that represents individual strength and self-empowerment. Tiffany’s T1 ring in rose gold or 18k white gold glittered in diamonds, serves as testament. It is feminine, has clean lines, is elegantly angular and timelessly elevated. It’s symbolism that’s delicate, subtle, but powerful. For wrist candy, our pick would be the T1 Hinged Bangle in rose gold, which is also beautifully done in 18k gold too, as well as the T1 Narrow Hinged Bangle.

The symbolism of a continuous unbroken circle that flows throughout the collection is something that’s particularly special. Whether that’s the T1 Circle Pendant pendant in White Gold or the T1 Open Hoop Earrings, the circular form offers an elegant soft style.

The Tiffany T1 collection comprises bracelets and rings in 18k gold, available in wide and narrow widths, including styles with pavé diamonds expertly set by hand in a honeycomb pattern, priced between $850 and $28,000.
