Keep reading for their his and hers tips for the holidays.
“Don’t just drop hints, but actually pick out the gifts for yourselves. Now, this does not mean that you have to buy it for yourself, but each year, Freddie and I set a day aside to go shopping together to pick out our gifts that we then hide away and ‘forget about’ until Christmas morning rolls around.” — Jenny Bernheim
“Traditional holiday styles can feel a bit dated. We like to coordinate our party looks through color and texture. If he’s wearing a polished velvet suit, I will wear a classic silk dress. The combination feels lavish and looks striking together. Add a Baume et Mercier watch to the look, and it speaks volumes for the appreciation one has for fine finishings. Even on a casual afternoon like this one, our looks are instantly elevated by our elegant watches.” — Jenny Bernheim
