REVEALED: Our Top 3 Timeless Christmas Gifts...

Christmas is finally nearly here and at Collectology, we cannot contain our excitement! If, like me, you love to share gifts with those close to you, these next few weeks can be the most stressful of the entire year; but they needn’t be! Thankfully, our Collectology expert, who quite literally puts the Chris is Christmas, has compiled a list of his top 3 Christmas gift ideas to give you peace of mind knowing that you’ve found a perfect, unique gift for your loved one. After all ‘tis the season to relax, unwind and look back over another fantastic year!

For me, Chris’ choices are so great because there really is something for everyone. Often it is difficult to find a balance between the material and the sentimental when it comes to Christmas gifts but this range does just that! The trick is to make it timeless; something that will be as loved in 50 years as it is today. We have three iconic picks from screen, stage and skies which have the ability to transport you to another time and yet remain relevant today, three truly timeless classics

1) The Katie Leung Signed Capsule Edition featuring the Hogwarts House Stamps

Chris’ first pick is the Katie Leung Signed Capsule Edition featuring the extremely rare Official Royal Mail Hogwarts House Stamps. Topping the blockbuster and bestseller charts for the last two decades, the popularity surrounding the Harry Potter franchise is unrelenting and collector demand is always very high!

This particular capsule edition features the Official Royal Mail Hogwarts House stamps, issued in 2007 to mark the 10th anniversary of the first ever Harry Potter book! Although that thought makes me feel very old, it really is a testament to the enduring success of everyone’s favourite wizard. The stamps feature the crests of each of the four Hogwarts’ Houses, alongside the Hogwarts coat of arms itself. At the time of their first release, these stamps were incredibly popular and are now extremely rare, making this a highly sought-after collectable.

Not only that, this exclusive capsule edition featuring those rare stamps has been hand-signed by Katie Leung, the actress we all know as Harry’s first love-interest, Cho Chang. Cho is a firm favourite amongst Harry Potter fans, best known as Ravenclaw’s strikingly beautiful, meticulous seeker and, of course, Harry Potter’s first kiss.

Katie’s signature, alongside such collectable stamps make this the ideal gift for any Harry Potter fan or any collector of stamps or autographs. The stamps and signature are encapsulated in a protective capsule and presented in a deluxe presentation case to finish such a classic piece perfectly.

However, due to the rarity of the stamps and the exclusive autograph this capsule edition has a strict edition limit of JUST 250. Considering the global fascination with memorabilia commemorating Harry Potter, this will not be enough and many collectors and fans alike look set to miss out!

2) Framed Vinyl and Stamp Presentations of music’s finest…

Next up is a unique tribute to some home-grown legends of the music industry in a stunning, artistic presentation.

In 2010, Royal Mail issued a series of Classic Album Covers Stamps in celebration of some of the most powerful, era-defining music of the last century. These album covers are instantly recognisable, in fact the artwork is iconic in itself, and it got us thinking about how many incredible vinyl sit gathering dust, underplayed and underappreciated…

With Vinyl slowly coming back into fashion, these Framed Vinyl and Stamp Presentations are the definitive, contemporary tributes to some of the greatest artists and albums the UK has ever produced. Featuring a brand-new, pristine vinyl edition of the actual album, mounted alongside the Official Royal Mail Album Cover Stamp, it really is a striking wall display for any home or office.

Featuring the likes of David Bowie’s Aladdin Sane, Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon and The Beatles’ Yellow Submarine, the prolific legacy of these albums is undeniable.

These Framed Vinyl and Stamp presentations have already proven to be extremely popular and with a strict edition limit of just 250 worldwide, they will forever remain to be extremely exclusive collectables.

With such a limited stock remaining, you will need to act fast. Find out more here>>

3) The Supermarine Spitfire Cufflinks

Now, this was Chris’ firm favourite and I can see why. How often can you say that your accessories have defended the skies?

Produced by experts at ‘TMB’ Art Metal, each cufflink is carefully crafted into the iconic Spitfire shape from Duralumin from an original Spitfire P7350, the oldest airworthy Spitfire in the world. In fact, the P7350 actually flew in the Battle of Britain in 1940! That means you can own a piece of Spitfire from the Battle of Britain – the largest aerial bombing campaign in history. 

Each Spitfire has ‘TMB’ and ‘1940’ engraved on the underside of the wings with ‘Spitfire’ and ‘P7350’ on either side and come beautifully presented in a deluxe wooden presentation case with its certificate of authenticity.

This stunning cufflinks pair is the ideal Spitfire commemorative for you or the perfect gift for a family member or ex-military serviceman. In fact, this is such a rare way to own a piece of history in such a stylish and relevant way. However, we currently only have very limited stock and with Christmas on the approach, this is sure to be a very popular gift option so don’t hang around!
