Holidays 2015: Gift ideas inspired by the Royal Family

Looking for a little regal inspiration for gift-giving this holiday season? The Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, can crash a website with her stylish ensembles and her children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, are fashion superstars for the under-three generation. From Kate’s go-to shoe collection to Prince George’s gentleman-approved co-ordinates and Princess Charlotte’s Spanish threads, the Cambridges are a solid source of fashionable gift ideas.

While his family helps keep closets full, Prince William’s devotion to wildlife preservation can help guide you toward a more sustainable and heartfelt present. Through the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, Prince William formed the United for Wildlife organization to unite seven of the world’s most influential conservation organizations in their work to save animals.

The Queen and company's hundreds of annual engagements around the world also bring fun cultural traditions and products to light. Take a cue from the monarch’s love of Scotland and package up some traditional tartan, a focal point of the country’s annual Braemar Gathering, which sees members of the Royal Family laughing and cheering on competitors in the biggest event in the Highland Games calendar. Or give the gift of warmth courtesy of a “wee dram” of whiskey, a treat that had the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in fits of laughter when they tipped their glasses during a visit to the Glenturret Distillery in 2014.
