Here’s a not so secret confession: I love Christmas shopping for other people. I love compiling wishlist posts and gift guides, even for things that I wouldn’t necessarily say are my style. But this is not one of those posts. This is a gift guide for a fashionable Christmas full of items that I thoroughly adore.

Over the years, I’ve gotten rid of pretty much any bra with padding and underwires and have entirely dedicated myself to team bralette. Whilst it isn’t for everyone, they are so comfortable.
I’ve been waiting and waiting for Glossier to get their act together and start shipping to the UK. Phase 1 and Phase 2 live at the top of my own wishlist. I’ve even looked into employing the freight company shipping method, but I can’t justify the price. Maybe if I tweet them another time, they’ll give in.
I recently discovered this dress online and I am in love. If only it would go on sale. I find the swing cut so comfortable and something I feel quite confident in, and the velvet makes it the perfect dress for a holiday party. But it can be dressed up or dressed down. (Imagine it with a leather jacket, bobble hat and some tennis shoes for a casual option.)
These metallic staked heel ankle boots are perfect for a Christmas party. On trend, easier to walk in than your classic stiletto and very reasonably priced. I love ankle boots and find the block heel to be really comfortable to wear. The metallic hue gives them a bit of a festive oomph.
I might be in the minority, but I love getting gift cards. Especially ones for events. How perfect would it be to receive a gift card and get to use it on the concert tickets of your dreams?
And no list would be complete without a few shiny bits and bobs. All the jewellery on this list is from Browns Family Jewellers, a Yorkshire based high-street jewellery company. I adore delicate jewellery. I’m not one for big statement pieces (they tend to overwhelm me though they look gorgeous on others). So on my list are a pair of delicate ball stud earrings (at an entirely excitable £35) and the daintiest pair of gold hoops (£57.50). Another piece I’d highly recommend is the rose gold, half-eternity ring. It immediately leapt out at me with it’s unique shape and reasonable price tag.
Let’s take a closer look at that gorgeous ring, shall we? I’ve been wearing it loads recently, and gotten quite a few compliments on it!
Have you finished your Christmas shopping yet?
