With Christmas fast-approaching we are all scrambling about trying to find the perfect gift for our loved ones. Our stylist Linsey is making Christmas shopping a little easier this year with this first part of a fabulous gift guide to help inspire your gifting this festive season.
There is nothing better on Christmas morning than opening a plush, little velvet box with something sparkly inside. Give your mum, wife or granny something beautiful to wear while tucking into the turkey this year. My favourites are these gorgeous earrings & pendant from Chapelle and bracelet & earrings from Ernest Jones.
Chapelle Earrings RRP £295 Outlet £145
Chapelle Pendant RRP £229 Outlet £159
The Body Shop as always has the best festive body care products around. Make sure the girls are thoroughly pampered over the Christmas break. I love the Frosted Berry Gift Set perfect for the girls and the seasonal scents are beautiful.
The Body Shop Star £30 and Frosted Berries Tin £20
Everybody wants to look their best heading into the New Year so set the ladies in your life up for success with a gorgeous new handbag or purse. I am so tempted to treat both my mum and I to this gorgeous bag from Fossil RRP £159 Outlet £103.
If you are looking to really treat the man in your life this year Chappelle has a fantastic range of watches in store at the minute. I absolutely love the design of the Seiko watch – RRP £199 Outlet £99.
The couple of days between Christmas and New Year are officially for watching festive films, eating leftovers and relaxing. Make sure the guys are fully equipped for all the chilling with Ted Baker’s amazing selection of menswear. My pick has to be these super cosy looking slippers perfect for vegging on Boxing Day, RRP £55 Outlet £36.
I know it’s a cliché but is Christmas really isn’t Christmas if you don’t get a nice bottle of perfume or aftershave. Make sure your man smells gorgeous over thanks to The Fragrance Shop. My scents of the season are Aramis (RRP £85 Outlet £37) and Boss (RRP £79 Outlet £49).
Secret Santa /Stocking Fillers
Chocolate is a stocking staple and exactly what you need curling up on the sofa on Boxing day. Grab a classic selection box from Cadburys or indulge in something sweet from Lindt – the master chocolatier!
Cadbury Santa £1.99, Cadbury Penguin Jar £4, Lindt Bear 2 for £8.
One of the best presents to receive in your stocking has to be a gift card for your morning coffee. We are all pinching the pennies come January so a £10 gift card for Starbucks or Costa will get your loved one through those cold winter mornings.
