The designer Boxing Day sales have started and here’s what I’m buying

  • While we’d normally have to wait for the 26th December for the designer Boxing Day sales to start, this year a lot of designers and stores have started early.

    The likes of Net-A-Porter and MatchesFashion have already discounted loads of items such as Gucci handbags and Balenciaga trainers, and even Harrods has started its sale early. Scroll down to shop the best designer Boxing Day sales bargains.


    When do Boxing Day sales start?

    Normally they start just after Christmas, on Boxing Day, which this year falls on Saturday 26th December. However, many of them have started already, so it’s the perfect time to shop for designer Christmas presents if you haven’t done so already.

    Do Selfridges have sales?

    Like other retailers, Selfridges is likely to start its Boxing Day sale early, so check the homepage everyday so you don’t miss out. It does have a great promotion at the moment, which is up to 50% off shoes and 30% off selected women’s and men’s fashion items. This includes brands such as ALLSAINTS, Acne Studios and Aspinal of London (I’ve included the Duchess of Cambridge’s handbag below).

    Do Gucci have sales?

    Gucci never officially has a Boxing Day sale, or any other sale for that matter, however you can buy it at other retailers who do host sales, for example The Outnet and Net-A-Porter.

    This is just a small selection of the items on sale, so do have a look for other bargains. It’s also worth noting that some of these sales have just started, so it’s likely they will add more lines to the sales as well as have further discounts if you can wait a little bit longer.
