Elspeth Cashmere Gloves from Cornelia James

‘Luxury’ is a concept greatly debased; so often a cover for overpriced ‘tat’, as we would say in England. But consider this. The ‘Elspeth’ glove from Cornelia James is 50 grams of pure cashmere that has been combed from the underdown of a goat grazing in the Gobi Desert, collected and transported over 6,000 miles to the shores of Loch Leven, Scotland before being dyed, spun, knitted and finally delivered to their glove makers in Sussex, England. Luxury? We think so.

    1. Thank you, Sally… we seem to have sufficient interest for them to make a regular appearance on ALTB, so expect more in the future…! 🙂

  1. I have a jacket very similar to that dunhill one. It’s so versatile that I can wear it casually on a flight or even for a formal business meeting.

    1. I love garments like that when they can be multi-purpose. It makes travelling with hand luggage only on short trips that little bit easier!

  2. There are always things in these lists that you never know you needed. I can see those rechargeable hand warmers becoming essentials.

    1. I’m glad to hear that, Liz. We always aim to have a good mix of items – serving different purposes and at different price points – so that hopefully there’s at least something for everyone.

  3. A very useful round up, very inspirational, especially as it’s my wife’s birthday in a month’s time.

  4. It really is time that I got myself a proper cabin-sized suitcase, I’ve made do with an old Howell for far too long.

  5. I’m a million miles away from being a tech geek, the trouble is that like so many people I’m dependent on the technology without having a clue how it works.

    There’s a lot of tech data – nerd speak – on the Kingston SSD, a stat attack that I don’t get but I’m guessing that all the numbers are telling me that it does its job very well.

    1. Hi Will

      In short, that device will store a huge amount of data (4TB is an awful lot – the equivalent of around 500 hours of HD vido), and you can get data on/off it very quickly. That pretty much sums up the tech speak, I think!


  6. Some very nice beauty products here to attempt to add elegance to my travels. Although I might be heading beyond repair!

  7. You always get the timing of these gift guides spot on. It’s my Dad’s birthday in April and since he’s retired he’s taken to travelling the world – but not always in style. I’m sure I could help him with a few items from here.

    1. That’s more by luck than judgement, Roxii… but we’re planning to make them more regular so hopefully they’ll always be timely for someone!

  8. There’s fashion and then there’s fashion that is practical and looks good on the road and is flexible too. That Palmerston Dress ticks a lot of boxes.

  9. A few weeks ago I invested in an all weather puffer changing robe similar to the one shown here and even if the one I bought isn’t quite as stylish as that one it’s one of my best purchases of the year so far.

  10. My skin isn’t looking at its best at the moment. When I escape for a long weekend or holiday I get overexcited and forget about skincare. I really ought to get the Travel Kit from Darling.

  11. It’s about this time of year that people start asking me what I’d like for my birthday and I usually haven’t got a clue.

    This year will be different. I’m getting together a short list of at least half a dozen luxuries from this post.
