What makes the perfect Christmas gift? Something big and extravagant? Or the intimate and carefully chosen; something chosen for its emotional value as much as the detail of design.

There’s a reason why leather accessories have historically been one of the most preferred gifts for Christmas. Finding an accessory that perfectly matches a person says worlds about how well we know them. It shows a level of thoughtfulness and consideration because, unlike say a gaming console or jewellery, a leather accessory such as a wallet, purse or bag is a gift designed to be used every day. It has to be both practical and beautiful. That old saying “it’s the thought that counts”? This is the kind of Christmas gift that they mean.

Tod’s has set the benchmark in this department when it comes to leather accessories that combine craftsmanship and quality – the two pillars that define what goes into the perfect Christmas gift.

To make the festive season a successful one, the team at ICON have curated a gift guide that will make this Christmas an unforgettable one. In fact, the only tough part will be trying not to treat yourself along the way.
