Christmas is fast approaching (10 days!), and seeing as I love all things festive I thought I’d put together some suggestions for Christmas gifts. From not-so-ugly jumpers to stocking fillers, here are my picks of the perfect gifts this year.
Anyone who knows me knows that Kate Spade New York is one of my absolute favourite brands. I can’t say enough how wonderful the experience was in their London store when I visited earlier this year, and I’ve used my Cedar Street floral tote bag almost every day for university because it gives such a pretty pop of colour. I’ve brought a number of small gifts from them, and each one arrives just in time and beautifully packaged. This t-shirt is perhaps a more modern, chic alternative to the typically ugly Christmas jumper, and although it is £60 their products are always worth it. Besides, who doesn’t identify with that slogan?
This is another pick from Kate Spade, and it is absolutely adorable. Whilst the price is slightly steep, it is made from 12-karat gold plated metal and definitely of a high quality. However, knowing that £60 obviously isn’t a reasonable price for a key-chain for most people, here is a £5 alternative that I spotted in Paperchase:
I also fell in love with this Christmas jumper by Letter Clothing Company on Not on the High Street. Once again it’s a slightly less garish alternative to some Christmas jumpers that can be found, and the beautiful hand lettering is printed on to high quality 100% combed organic cotton- so you can be happy knowing that you’ve made a more environmentally sustainable choice, and have a jumper that you’ll wear time and time again over the holiday season.
As I’m sure you’ve noticed, personalised products are everywhere. It makes a gift just that more special, and has been utilised by designers (Gucci and Ralph Lauren to name a few), as well as on the high street. These white jasmine scented candles from Next are an ideal stocking-filler, and there are also makeup bags available too. I’ve always found it difficult finding my name on things, so I was happy to see that there was a J available!
I couldn’t resist including this Nails Inc gift set from John Lewis when I saw the packaging. At only £15 it is a relatively well-priced gift- and that glitter nail-polish would be ideal for all the parties approaching as we wait for the New Year. All in all it is a wonderful option for a stocking filler, or even a perfect option for a Secret Santa gift!
