Hedonism The company can deliver show-stopping champagnes anywhere in London, fast in one of its environmentally friendly electric vans. Its inventory includes a particularly impressive choice of Bollinger Vieilles Vignes (from £598.70), Krug Clos d’Ambonnay (from £1,822.50) and Krug Clos du Mesnil (from £642.70) vintages as well as cult names including Salon (from £360) and Jacques Selosse (from £122). If the one you love has been very, very good this year, you might even be tempted to buy the entire Dom Pérignon 3rd Cellar Collection, an oenotheque of eight vintages from 1966-93 in a mix of bottle and magnum – that will set you back £27,950 (but rest assured, this is one gift that won’t arrive on the back of a bike). www.hedonism.co.uk
