Heathrow teams up with top fashion illustrators for festive gift wrap service

Heathrow airport has teamed up with top fashion illustrators Daisy de Villeneuve, Clym Evernden and Fifi Lapin on a festive project to create stylish gift wrap, bags and boxes.

The major international airport in west London, England has enlisted the help of the talented designers for their complimentary wrapping facility, which runs throughout all terminals, to allow passengers travelling through the airport the opportunity to add a bit of sparkle and glam to their gifts.

Jonathan Coen, Retail Director at Heathrow, said: "We're very proud of the retail experience at Heathrow and are home to over 450 brands across the airport, meaning those travelling to visit loved ones will have lots to choose from when looking for that perfect present.

"From luxury fragrances to the latest gadgets, there's something for everyone, and for anyone struggling to make up their minds, our Gift Helpers will be on hand to offer expert insight and help with all aspects of your Christmas shopping - from choosing to carrying and wrapping."

The service is available for all gifts purchased in the departure lounge and is free of charge, but passengers will be given the option to make a donation to the charity Oxfam.

Mr. Coen explained: "We wanted to offer our passengers something extra special this year so we're thrilled to reveal our limited edition gift bags and boxes, designed by some of the most celebrated British fashion illustrators and bloggers. And what better time to spread some festive cheer by raising much-needed funds for our charity partner, Oxfam."

The brilliant service at Heathrow, which is home to numerous luxury and high street favourites, is available now.
