Personal Styling & Shopping gift experiences

How does it work?

  • Step 1: You decide upon the right gift experience; which you then buy.
  • Step 2: Choose whether you want a Paper Gift Voucher or an Online Gift Voucher, confirm your personalised message, the recipients name and where your voucher should be sent.
  • Step 3: The lucky recipient receives their gift voucher and all the relevant information about their experience.
  • Step 4: They call or email to book a date for their experience.
  • Step 5: You make their day!

Enhance their experience

Why not make a day of it and share their experience by treating yourself to a Caboodle Style session for you and accompany them on the day.

A store gift card (like that offered by Selfridges or Westfield London) is a perfect supplement to any of my personal shopping gift experiences.

Already had a session with a personal stylist?

Of course if the recipient has already had a session with a personal stylist and knows their colour and style profile, then my wardrobe revamp and personal shopping service will provide an ideal follow-on and help instil the principles of clever dressing into their wardrobe and shopping habits, as well as inspire them to enhance their personal style.

Perhaps they've had a session with an in store personal shopper, but not achieved what they hoped. In this case my ‘essential personal styling’ or ‘complete personal style overhaul’ gift experiences will equip them to shop smartly for themselves by understanding what looks good on them and why.

How many hours should I book?

The duration of both my wardrobe revamp and personal shopping services can be extended beyond the minimum 2 hours. This is dependent upon the size of the wardrobe and the shopping objective. An average wardrobe can be assessed within 2-3 hours. An average personal shopping session is 3 hours – but this really is dependent on what we’re shopping for, a whole new wardrobe for example will take several more hours.

Where will the experience take place?

Located in Surbiton on the South West London / Surrey border (just 17 minutes from London Waterloo by train), I cover all of Greater London and the Home Counties.

I’m flexible on where sessions are held, however if the recipient visits me in Surbiton they can take advantage of all my personal styling session material being ready-to-hand.

Naturally if the gift experience includes my wardrobe revamp session, this needs to take place at the recipient’s home.

Generally I shop in London West End where there’s the broadest selection of stores and biggest collections. Westfield London is another popular destination, offering a great selection of brands all under the one roof. I also shop locally with clients in Kingston (a very manageable and pleasant shopping town offering a wide range of shops to suit a variety of styles and budgets).

If the recipient lives further field I’m happy to travel to their home and go out in their local shopping area. A small travel fee may be added for long journeys which we can agree beforehand.

When can this experience be booked?

I offer daytime and evening session slots every weekday and, for a £30 premium, daytime session slots on weekends.

Recipients of gift experiences incorporating several services may want to book a whole day with me or perhaps spread the experience over two days. These need not be consecutive days.

A gift experience can be booked for a certain date or be left open for up to 12 months for the recipient to book at a time of their choosing - subject to availability.

When ready to book a date, simply check my availability online. To secure a convenient appointment time, I recommend you book at least two weeks in advance to avoid disappointment.

Ensure they receive it on time

Caboodle Style Paper Gift Vouchers are sent within 48 hours by First Class Royal Mail, normally delivered next day (Monday-Saturday). For last minute orders an Online Gift Voucher can be emailed, normally within 12 hours.

Redeeming Cash Value Gift Vouchers

When utilising Caboodle Style Cash Value Gift Vouchers as part payment for a service, the full balance will need to be paid before the session is attended and the Cash Value Gift Vouchers must be presented on the day.

Why choose Caboodle Style?

My main aim for all my gift experiences is to deliver an enjoyable session that the recipient will never forget and will make them feel really treated.

Whether this gift experience was requested or a complete surprise, I make sure I listen to the recipient’s needs and concerns so I can immediately allay any apprehension and personalise their session accordingly – ensuring they get the most value and pleasure out of their experience.

The benefits of a massage or facial will only last a few days; my personal styling and personal shopping gift experiences will last forever. The very practical information they gain will ensure a lifelong understanding of how to utilise personal styling to their advantage allowing them to be the best version of themselves.

How to prepare for their experience?

Recipient’s will be required to complete and return my pre profiling form, ideally a week before we meet – giving me plenty of time to prepare and hence make the most of their time with me.

A fairly recent full length and/or portrait photograph is also extremely helpful. Apart from this, they don’t need to do anything else – just remember not to wear foundation, fake-tan or any top with a high-neck if doing colour analysis.

Cash Value Vouchers
