You know how getting ready is sometimes almost as good as going out? Well, I sort of think that shopping for Christmas is a little bit similar. Y'know, with the exception of the whole RUNNING AROUND IN A PANIC not knowing who to get what and when. Just thinking about it gives me the urge to drown my sorrows in mulled wine.
Featuring a range of unique, beautiful and well-thought out gifts, there is genuinely something for everyone..... to make your shopping easier, here are my top picks!
That said, I'm a big fan of browsing for presents when there's no last-minute Xmas pressure. I also love a good shop which does ALL the presents you need, in one place. Therefore today's blog post is a spotlight on the Handpicked Collection.
Black & Blum Double Loop Bowls, for snacks, candles or festive decorations, they will look great on a side table.
Gorgeous interior ideas with the Iron & Wood Block Lamp, Leather Strap Square Clock, Antique Map Box. Cannot decide what I like the best here, I just need a big Beauty & the Beast style library to go with it..
Nickel Finn Ship's Clock - I absolutely LOVE this, but its a bit out of my budget. Genuinely stunning, it adds a touch of timeless elegance to any room. It would make a great landmark gift, like a wedding, new house, that sort of thing.
For those of you who love to put things in bags. This Wash Me Wear Me Bag is a genius idea for travelling. There's a female version too.
For the cheese fiends, this Marble Cheeseboard and Horn Handled Cruet Set will make any meal instagrammable.
Wine Stash Crate - Nuff said. Just a MUST.
For the kids, this Mini Toy Drum Kit - it's so teeny!! It fits under a table.
Terrariums are huge right now, I love these! Perfect for candles or mini cactii - they will make your house look like a showhome.
Some finishing pieces for your dressing table, the Cat Ring Holder, Bunny Ring Holder look great and are useful for collecting rings too.
What do YOU think? Any good gifts here? Do you find Xmas shopping stressful, or fun?
