As another year draws to a close and with holidays on the way, we bring you an edition to savour that will help you embrace the festive spirit.

Starting with our Xmas Gift Guide, we also go on a shopping spree in London’s iconic streets, view Christmas Crockery by Villeroy & Boch, become dazzled by the new Guess Winter Collection, and suggest some desirable items for pet lovers.

Have you ever thought of spending the night in a freezer? You can do just that, and survive, at any of the fantastical Ice Hotels which form part of our main travel feature! Closer to home, we propose a Spanish Road Trip, stopping over at the recently resurrected Gran Hotel Inglés in Madrid, and marvelling at the exalted artistry of Gaudí’s legacy in Barcelona.

We profile Scottish actor, Sam Heughan, who has been melting hearts in Outlander, meet James Asquith who, at only 24, had managed to visit all 196 sovereign countries in the world, and see what Spanish Masterchef supremo, Jordi Cruz Mas, is up to.

For sheer stunning design and unbridled power, they don’t come much better than the new Bugatti Divo, which commands a lofty €5M price tag. We also report on 70 years of Land Rover, since 1948, and take a drive in the latest from the fleet, the Range Rover Velar.

Finally, as Christmas is definitively a time for enjoyment with friends and family, don’t miss our reviews of top restaurants, Origen Asador Argentino in Marbella, and Rancho Grille in Las Chapas, as well as a new generation of wines from Ronda courtesy of Bodegas Lara.
