Mum

All Mums need a treat at Christmas and this super soft funnel neck jumper from Wyse London would be perfect for my Mum to show her how much I care.

£40

Dad

I love the idea of personalising your own bottle and The Oxton Liqueur Company do it so well. It’s hard to decide but I think my Dad would love the award winning Pink Rhubarb Gin Liqueur and I’m hoping I get to sample a taste too - he knows how much I love pink!

Husband

My hardworking and gorgeous husband deserves lots of presents but I know he loves a Merino jumper so this one from Birdie London will have to be on the list.

Teenage Boys

Are always hard to buy for but you can’t go wrong with a personalised bag and this sailcloth holdall from Oarsum is fantastic. We love to travel and he will easily spot this coming on the luggage belt.

Olive the dog

Can’t forget Olive my Greek Shelter, Ruffian has been my saviour this year -despite terrorising delivery drivers (they wouldn’t even set foot in the gate in lockdown) and she definitely deserves a little pressie. She will love this new lead from African Skies with a pop of neon  - obviously!

To make up for lockdown

Just think of all the money we have saved staying in during lock down so I thought if I HAD to buy myself something it would be gold and sparkly. This long (it was a long lockdown) crystal necklace is a statement piece with just the right amount of sparkle! I’m just saying…. it’s on the list!

Husband

The man in my life is cycling obsessed.  This repair box would be a perfect grown up stocking filler - I don’t want him out on the road without any kit!

Self gifting

Always a sucker for sparkles and Christmas Day is the perfect time to debut this fabulous Wyse London gunmetal sequin skirt. I’ll blend beautifully with the decorations  -now just to find some SJP inspired heals to match!

Sister

It's been a year of comfy and you can never have enough sweatshirts  - I know my sister will love this Love Sweat Tees top. Good reminder to love yourself too!

Brother in law

These clever Chukka Polo belts are stretchy which makes them comfortable and so easy to wear. The blue and emerald green make this one rather smart and I know my bother in law will enjoy it.

Friends

Don’t you find buying for friends the easiest? I knew she would love this as soon as I saw it on Boho Betty - the sunburst charms in gold remind me of holidays - will it actually make it under the tree?!

buy from boho betty

Boys

He’s always happy in the water and these fantastic trunks from Team Beachwear will be a great present. The fun print comes in a bikini too but I'm not sure he would want us matching on the beach!

Let’s be honest, 2020’s been a shocking year! 

So, bearing in mind all the money we have saved on not going out, if you’re in the fortunate position of being able to treat yourself, I can’t think of anything more lovely than buying some original art from Kate Preston Art , with prices from £150 to £1500. What a treat.

I love a bath. I think there is nothing more relaxing and they are such a great way of getting some “me time” so I think a bath with these fabulous Sleepy Mind Salts would just be the perfect way to end the day. I have to say they would be the perfect gift for a good friend who you knew deserves a little treat.
