While hotels have been haemorrhaging cash through lockdowns and tiers, we can lend them a helping hand by showing our love and buying their incredible wares as gifts this Christmas (and beyond). Usually, hotel collections are local, beautifully curated and of impeccable quality. Here are some of the best gifts from hotels.
