CHRISTMAS IS COMING
What an imaginative title, huh? I apologise for that. But it is what it is. Hopefully – and I am sure you will – find some interesting gift ideas from today’s post! Now, we all know Christmas is closing in on us and there’s not too long to go but I’ve made it easy for you by breaking down some amazing treats for your friends and family. Admittedly, these gifts are pretty feminine but that’s because I have no idea what men like these days… However, take a browse on the websites I’ve shared and I’m sure you will discover some goodies for the fellas too!
FOR STATIONERY LOVERS
kikki.K has been a favourite of mine for a while now. Since I discovered their store in Covent Garden I was in love.
Their beautiful, chic and Scandinavian designs are the perfect gifts for those who are obsessed by planners, pens and paper. But they don’t just do stationery, oh no. kikki.K also have a home decor department to create a wave of inspiration throughout your home and office.

So, if you have a pal who is obsessed with gorgeous desk spaces, has a large collection of notebooks or needs to get their life in order, kikki.K is the one.
Sometimes a new online store is just what you need to discover different pieces that create bold fashion combos. If you know any ladies (and gentlemen) who are always shopping for new outfits, it’s time to introduce them to JOY.
JOY describe themselves as, “A unique fashion and lifestyle brand,” and they certainly are. Basic but bold designs make JOY stand out from other online stores. There is a huge range of designs online as well as accessories, gifts and homeware.
I personally fell in love with this sweater and skirt combo which can be seen on this model… So, that’s what I went for. Although I’m not one for mixing patterns, this works so well. See? Mind opened! Plus these are pieces that will go with practically any other item of clothing.
The menswear also has a large range of items from print tees to shirts. The ideal option for those who are clothes mad or are looking to spruce up their wardrobe.
FOR THOSE WITH A SWEET TOOTH
As a stocking filler or a secret Santa, a personalised sweetie box is an adorable gift idea by Love Lolly May. I Just Love It offers a large range of personalised gifts for your loved ones and one of them is this deliciously sweet present.
Inside the box are Love Hearts, Jelly Bean Hearts and Rose Flavoured Praline Chocolates and each of them come in a ribbon-tied bag. Inside is a personalised gift card. A truly scrumptious gift!
FOR THE ROMANTIC MUSIC LOVERS
If you are looking for something a little more personal and old school with a mix of modern day, why not create a mix tape?
I Just Love It have created a Personalised Mix Tape MP3 Player. Yep, an MP3 tape!
You can fit five hundred songs on this baby. A fantastic Christmas gift for someone special who loves their music. Put songs that remind you of them, love songs or even just a mixture of all their favourites. It doesn’t have to be lovey dovey as you can personalise the message with whatever you like!
This MP3 player has a six-hour battery life and can be listened to with the headphones provided or even in a real cassette player!
Uploading music is easy. Just pop the songs from your computer to the SD card using the USB cable provided. They can even add songs on later!
FOR MAKEUP OBSESSIVES
Who doesn’t love getting makeup for Christmas? There’s never enough. And makeup has changed a lot since I was a teen. No more Dream Matte mousse foundation…
Just My Look is the place for HUGE amounts of beauty, skincare and hair care products making it super easy to get hold of a large amount of stunning, long lasting makeup and beauty products.
Two items I particularly wanted to get my hands on to show you are Sleek’s eyeshadow palette and highlighting palette. And what I love most? It’s cruelty-free and Vegan. Happy days. These particular products are fantastic quality. The eyeshadows are pigmented meaning it will last without constant re-application. And the highlights provide a natural and subtle glow.
FOR JEWELLERY LOVERS
Etsy has become a huge shopping platform over the past year. It’s a place where artists and creatives can sell beautiful, quality, handcrafted products.
If you want to give your loved one a unique gift, Quaint Charms offer gorgeous handmade jewellery. Bibi creates delicate, elegant and affordable items which are made to order.
I loved the Amethyst charm necklace as soon as I saw it! Although gold isn’t usually my thing, I felt this worked well with the Amethyst (my birthstone). The workmanship is quality, strong, yet dainty. It’s a stunning delicate necklace complete with a filigree gold leaf and gold initial charm on a delicate chain.
A sweet Christmas gift for someone who cannot get enough jewellery!
