There is still time to get something online and delivered by express, so I thought I’d share with you some of the favourite gifts that I have personally received. Here you have my last minute Christmas gift guide for 2015.
Gift number one are Jollie socks from Jollie Goods. Not only do I love the vibrant colours of these socks but also the concept behind this online store.
It was founded by Ed Vickers, who I have personally met. Whilst at Universty as a student, Ed was inspired to help the homeless. He came up with the idea of providing them with fresh pairs of socks. To all, it may seem a small gesture, but a pair of socks for a homeless person has a large impact, not only providing them comfort and warmth but helping with foot health issues that they are constantly suffering with, I know that for a fact as a doctor.
For every pair of socks that we buy, we are doing our part for the homeless. So please do support. They are super cool and comfortable too. They come in matching tins, perfect for the Christmas stockings, don’t you think? These bright and colourful enamel plates are just perfect to inspire me. Is there a friend in need of cheering up during this festive season?
It’s designed by Kristian Kowalski. You can customise your Totem mill with different colours online too.
I love mine as it is, in an orangey red with blue on white beech. Have you got a teen who loves to stay in bed with the laptop and headphones? I’ve been reassured this is quite normal behaviour for teens. Well, these pillow cases in a brush lettering font from Old English company would be the perfect gift then. For that friend of yours who is a professional and seem to have everything, how about a gift that is both functional and elegant as this Faber Castell Ambition OpArt ballpoint pen in aqua? Well, everyone needs a pen right? Even better that the pen comes in such a gorgeous shade of aqua. For a lover of colour and technology, how about these super vibrant laptop and i-pad cases from Parris Wakefield? The designs are crafted digitally by mixing, merging and layering colours from a variety of inspirations. The cases are also waterproof for protection of your gadgets.
I have selected two different patterns and love the bold clash of colours together. I have recently discovered this cool eye make up brand called Eyeko. I’ve now started using the eyeliner and mascara. It really does create striking eyes. There are also tutorials on their website for you to learn.
Needless to say, this would be a wonderful gift for a make up fan. Someone who loves trying out new brands to create that perfect look of the season. For the little fella in your life, how about this super cute Round and Round rug in geometric patterns from Little P? My son loves his rug and we will be showcasing it in his room on the blog soon. Last but not least, how about a gorgeous towel in a tin from Drye. It may be Winter now, but let this towel remind us of sunny climes and days by the poolside to come. A towel is very much a universal gift, reserve this for someone you have absolutely no idea what to buy for. The designs are all gorgeous too.
Hope you find this last minute gift guide helpful. I’m off to check my gift list now.
