Focus | Paul's Christmas Gift Picks Autumn/Winter 13

From wooden dominoes to weekend bags, Paul selects some of his favourite Christmas gifts, available online now.

"I'm probably the hardest person in the world to buy Christmas presents for, my poor wife Pauline struggles every year and anyone who's seen a photograph of my office will know why! Here I've chosen a few products from the huge selection of things we have that I feel are extra special for Christmas.

Hello, my name is Paul Smith for Rizzoli

This is a bit of self-promotion. I've got an exhibition on at the Design Museum in London at the moment and to go along with it the publisher Rizzoli have worked with me on this book, it's called 'Hello, my name is Paul Smith'!

ESP Guitar for Paul Smith

A famous musician was in my office recently. I can't say who it was, but he picked-up this guitar I've done with ESP and started strumming on it and it has a really great sound! It would look good hanging on your wall even if you can't play it.

Coral Pink V-Base Holdall

This V-base holdall is expensive but is really beautiful so is worth every penny. I use one of them all the time and I promise you it will last and last and it gets better the more you use it.

Graphical House Dominoes for Paul Smith

We've worked on a really beautiful set of hand-cut wooden dominoes. They're particularly appropriate because my new shop at No. 9 Albemarle Street in Mayfair has one room where the walls are completely covered in dominoes!

Cambridge Chronograph Watch

There's a lot of great watches out there but this one, the Cambridge chronograph, has both a modern and military feel. The tan leather strap is lined in green suede, giving it that touch of something unexpected!

Boys Planet Print T-shirt

If you're buying presents for children or grandchildren we do some great junior clothes. We have lots of fantastic printed t-shirts that would make great stocking fillers.

Ziggy Handbag

We do lots of brilliant bags, the women's one I'm especially drawn to is the Ziggy. I like it because its combination of different colours makes it almost Mondrian-esque. It's a great shape too and comes with a detachable shoulder strap.

Pencil Cufflinks

Not everybody wears cufflinks but if you know someone who does, we do some really fun ones. These little pencils that we have online are really well done and the perfect thing for a graphic designer, an illustrator or someone creative.

Multi-Coloured Stripe Socks

I'm not sure I need to tell you about socks but we've got a great selection of colourful pairs; striped ones, polka dot ones, floral ones, everything! If you don't know what to buy for someone you can't go wrong with a pair of socks.
