The Christmas season is upon us and, amidst the fun and celebration, there’s always a small measure of gift-giving panic. Whether you’re shopping for a friend who seemingly has everything, a notoriously picky relative, or a family member who insists they ‘honestly don’t want anything this year’ (but of course, they really do!), the in-the-know Urbis elves have compiled a selection of gift options that are glitzy, quirky, glamorous… or just plain cool. So, take a deep breath, grab a festive beverage (and a credit card firmly in the other hand), and browse through the 2015 Urbis Christmas Gift Guide.
