Do you find Christmas shopping a bit of a nightmare? Luckily for you it’s my favourite aspect of christmas since I find shopping for others so rewarding! This is the first blog post within a three part series in which I will share some inspiration for christmas gifts you could buy for friends, family or even if you are stuck for ideas for what you would like to receive yourself. So here is my first christmas gift guide, all these items are £20 or less making them affordable but still thoughtful and exciting for those special people in your life.
For the coffee lovers
Gift cards don’t have to be impersonal or boring. Rather than a traditional gift card, you could get someone a card from their favourite coffee shop, it shows how well you know them, and you could even give it to them for the occasions when you go and grab coffee together.
For that person who sprays all the testers in the shop
When someone is too indecisive about their favourite fragrance, minis are the perfect solution. My top recommendations would be the GHOST fragrances baubles since they are 10ml and come in a bauble making them a christmassy, cute gift. I also love the Zara Eau Du Toilette bottles which are 100ml and so affordable for around £10.
For the fashion lovers
You cannot go wrong with a striped t-shirt, especially if it has yellow in it AND its from Zara, for £5.99 what’s not to like! Since yellow has been such a big trend, why not commit by giving this amazing bag to someone who also loves yellow. The design is so sleek and such a useful sized bag to own, I am even tempted to ask for this myself. Then, for this time of year, there is no better way to finish off an outfit the with a cosy scarf, this one from Dorothy Perkins would be a great gift for someone who does not like bright colours, or for someone who you are unsure about their personal taste; the neutral colours are subtle but still stylish. Of course to accessorise Ted Baker jewellery is the way to go, and these rose gold heart shaped earrings are still on budget.
For the baking queens
Around this time of year there is nothing better than staying out of the cold and baking, so anyone who loves to bake would appreciate a cute cake stand to display their creations.
For the person who loves prints & homeware
Coconut Lane have so many gorgeous prints, and in particular their marble print is so gorgeous, especially on the rose gold cushion. But if someone prefers bolder designs, the palm print remains such an iconic design and this phone case can satisfy all the palm print needs! But if you are after a piece a bit more sentimental or thoughtful, then a photo frame can show a lot of thought and you can buy one which you know matched the decor in someones home, and fill it with your favourite memories or a meaningful quote. The shape of this leaf frame is unique and perfect for anyone with a gold accents in their home.
I hope you enjoyed this post, and until my next gift guide, have fun shopping!
