I thought I’d put together a little gift guide this year – partly to inspire you guys, and partly to inspire my own Christmas shopping list! Every year it can feel a bit daunting, so I thought I’d curate some of my favourite stocking fillers to get us all off on the right foot (no pun intended). There’s nothing ground groundbreaking here in terms of unique ideas, but I just wanted share some of the things I’d personally love to receive, along with plenty of pieces I know those close to me would love to receive too… 

For the Lifestyle lover 

I personally think you can’t go wrong with lifestyle pieces for Christmas presents. Especially if you’ve exhausted all other avenues over the years. I always appreciate a nice candle, book, or something ‘quirky’ to place around the home. MOSS kindly sent me the above candle, matches and notebook – I think they would make the perfect little gift for the person who likes to stay up late and scribble down ideas. I’ve also been doing lots of my Christmas shopping on sites like Trouva and Le Gent – both have an amazing selection of boutiques to offer when it comes to lifestyle pieces. I could easily spend hours on both of them, introducing myself to new designers and new things to add to my wishlist…


For the fashion & accessory obsessive

Jewellery is always such a special gift to give at Christmas time. I definitely think that it’s possible to capture someones personality in a piece of jewellery – most of the pieces I own have stories behind them, and I love that a piece of jewellery can become a conversational piece. I wanted to give a special mention to one of my favourite places to source vintage jewellery online – Buckle Bow Pearl. If you’re after vintage gems that are in pristine condition, you really can’t go wrong with this little online haven! BBP have kindly sent me a couple of pieces over the years, and they have fast become firm favourites that I reach for everyday. Whether it’s that showstopper piece you’re after for someone special, or even an engagement ring – they are always happy to help. I’m so glad that I stumbled across them after the lovely owner reached out to me, and I know it’s a place I’ll be returning for my jewellery for years to come! I also couldn’t create a jewellery section without mentioning my collaboration with Mikaela Lyons now could I? We designed three gold pieces all with stars engraved into them – now if that’s not the perfect christmassy themed gift, then I’m not quite sure what is…


For the beauty hoarder 

And last but not least, a roundup of some of my favourite beauty products – for the person who’s always looking to expand their lipstick collection. Whether it’s a masculine scent, a new shade of nude, or some bath salts I haven’t tried – I’m always in favour of something beauty related under the tree…
