It’s that time of year again – time to start thinking about Christmas presents. Whether it’s a fussy sister or a girlfriend who seems to have everything, we all have someone who is impossible to buy for, and even if you do think you know what to purchase, shopping for gifts can be a somewhat arduous task. We’ve got a list of ten gifts to give you some inspiration and motivation to kick things off.
1. Ciate Advent Calendar, £38, Selfridges
Snap one of these up before December hits and give it as an early present for a nail-obsessed giftee. Each day in the lead up to Christmas they will find a little pot of Ciate polish behind each door. Not a bad way to start off the festive season!
2. Monica Vinader Ring, from £55, monicavinader.com
This simple yet stunning ring is sure to be a hit with a jewellery lover. Monica Vinader designs are beautiful and extremely good value. Stack it up with similar styles if desired.
3. Ryan Gosling Colouring Book, £7.50, maidenshop.com
Let’s face it, there are a lot of people obsessed with Ryan Gosling right now. If you know one of them, then this is the perfect little gift. Colouring-in for grown-ups.
4. Diptyque Candle, £25, Selfridges
No one does a candle quite like Diptyque. We love this one – perfectly festive-looking and a different spin on the usual black and white design.
5. Eternal Chanel Book, £35, Amazon.co.uk
For a woman who loves fashion this is a coffee table must. Ideal for them to flick through when the amount of Christmas food has them rendered stuck to the sofa.
6. Benefit Limited Edition “She’s So…Jetset!” Gift Set, £ 26.55, John Lewis
All the best bits from Benefit’s eye, lip ad cheek ranges in one kit. For those who like to look primped and polish at all times, this is one for them.
7. Maison Martin Margiela Crackers, £40, Selfridges
There are no dodgy bottle openers or paper hats here – the only thing you will get from these exclusive Maison Martin Margiela crackers is an eau de parfum. A little luxury your guests certainly won’t be expecting.
8. Eau de Chloe perfume, from £43, Debenhams
A light, refreshing, floral scent that has proved to be very popular in the fragrance charts. It’s a safe bet that this will go down a treat.
9. IF IN DOUBT POUT T-Shirt – White, Shop.LDNfashion.com
Let your tee say it all with this ‘If In Doubt, Pout’ style. Made from 100% fair trade cotton and screen printed in good ol’ England. We’re a bit bias though as it’s from our newly launched shop.
10. Liz Earle Skincare Starter Gift Set, £17.50, John Lewis
If you’re thinking along the beauty lines look no further than Liz Earle. This great gift set is all about the pampering. It contains their award winning Hot Cloth Cleanser and Skin tonic Spritzer will be a hit.
