Shibumi's Christmas Gift Guide 2020

Dare we say it but it’s that time of year again! Christmas is approaching and now is the perfect time to get your shopping done (and avoid the mad rush 🤪) With beautiful Shibumi goodies, including some new designs, and our favourite pieces from other small businesses.
This year has been like none other that we have experienced, and we are so very, very grateful to all of our amazing customers that have helped us to survive these extraordinary times. As it’s looking like Christmas this year will be a cosy affair at home, we want to focus on gifts that bring warmth, luxury and most importantly love into your home. Think cosy loungewear, yummy treats and sumptuous soft furnishings… all from wonderful small businesses of course!
So without further ado, here are our top picks for a cosy, ethically sourced Christmas…

womens red floral cashmere kimono jacket reversible

Shibumi Reversible Kimono Jacket

These amazing new designs make the perfect gifts for the Shibumi lover in your life! Much more casual than our other jackets, so easier to wear on an everyday basis, these cashmere kimonos can be worn over jeans and a jumper, for the ultimate comfort with leggings or they can be dressed up when worn over a black dress or tailored jumpsuit. These floral kimonos also work beautifully as a cover up by the pool or on the beach, and can be worn as a shorter alternative to our Reversible Dressing Gowns.

raw silk face masks face coverings

Shibumi Silk Face Masks!

(We tried to resist! 😉)

If you had told us this time last year that we would be making face masks, we wouldn’t have believed it! But here we are anyway, and we decided that if we must wear face coverings, we must wear beautiful raw silk face coverings! These masks have been designed for a snug, comfortable fit, they are all made from our plain and embroidered silk, each with a 100% cotton lining that has inserts for a filter should you wish to use one. Each mask comes with a matching silk pouch to keep it safe and clean in your handbag. These have been lovingly handmade by our dressmaker in Gloucestershire, and we can do bespoke sizing if needed, although one size should fit most ladies.

These masks make a fun addition to any outfit, whether you’re working in an office, going out for dinner, or attending a small wedding. Why not have fun and mix and match with your favourite Shibumi jackets!

The perfect stocking filler…
