    Stuck for festive ideas, or looking for a change from last year’s office party disaster? PA Life presents its own 12 Days of Christmas list to help you prepare for the joyous season of gifting and celebrating.

    Alexander & James
    Aside from a selection of the finest spirits from Tanqueray 10 to limited edition single malt whiskies, the luxury drinks website has unveiled a complete at-home hosting package. For the ultimate experience, it offers to cater your entire event, including bespoke glassware, fine spirits, serving suggestions and an expert mixologist to make at-home hosting as seamless as possible. alexanderandjames.com

    Asprey Gifts
    Rather than the usual gift wrapping, why not send beautifully crafted silver trinkets inside an elegant Christmas cracker? Asprey prides itself on the quality of its pieces and no detail is spared here. With choices such as cufflinks, a bracelet, or a money clip, you’re likely to find just the right thing for those on Santa’s list. asprey.com

    Dewsall Court
    Dewsall Court in Herefordshire is offering something different from your typical Christmas party. Guests are invited to get rugged up in their best furs for a Scandinavian-themed evening of fire, ice, great food and dancing. Parties can be booked privately throughout December, or for joiner parties with tables of up to 18 on 5, 12, 14 and 17 December. dewsall.com

    The Dorchester
    This season, chef Alain Ducasse has handpicked a selection of his favourite speciality chocolates from his factory in Paris for a luxury hamper. To enhance the experience, the package includes a bottle of Champagne NV Selection Alain Ducasse Brut, previously only served at his restaurant at the Dorchester. Order from now until 10 December. tinyurl.com/oeb6553
