Natasha Root, Private Client Insurance Executive has been looking* at the top trending adult gifts for Christmas this year, to make your shopping that much easier.

 Protecting your gifts

While most of your Christmas gifts will be covered by your home contents insurance, many insurers impose a single item limit, meaning that you if you own an individual item worth more than the ‘single item sum’ specified in the policy, you may not be able to claim for the full value of that item. So, for example, if your policy has a ‘single item sum’ limit of £5000 and you need to make a claim for a stolen Rolex watch worth £8000, the policy will only repay £5000, leaving you out of pocket by £3000.

For this reason, it is important that you obtain up to date valuations to make sure your jewellery and other items are fully protected in the event of a claim. Most standard policies have low single item limits, so it’s vital that you have an insurance policy that suits your needs. At Scrutton Bland we pride ourselves in working with high value insurers who offer bespoke cover for insurance for valuable items like jewellery and antiques.

At Scrutton Bland our Private Client Insurance department offers a bespoke service to cover your insurance needs. Furthermore, we can work with our tax advisers to help manage and protect your wealth, assets, and investment portfolio.
