With the festive season rapidly approaching, what better gift to give than a little bit of 'bling' to make someone feel a million dollars - whether they're out donning their dancing shoes at the office party, sales shopping with the girls or enjoying a cosy night in with their other half? Whatever the occasion, I've got you covered.
1. Something Shiny
You could go for all out sparkle here and a statement piece to wow, or, alternatively there is the option of classic and personal. If it's the latter you're after, then this Monica Vinader Alphabet Pendant is beautiful - the charm and chain are available separately and are at the slightly pricier end of the scale when it comes to gift giving but for that special someone or a best friend, I think they would be perfect.
2. Keeping cosy
Let's face it, this ones a classic - slippers, lounge-wear, pyjamas - you name it, we all can't get enough of it. I came across these cute little bunnies in Forever 21 and just couldn't resist. If there's one time of year that you can get away with novelty footwear it's now, so make the most of it I say.
3. Winter Warmers
Along the same lines, but instead of staying indoors, this lot will ensure you're wrapped up warm on those icy winter mornings. Nothing beats a good bobble hat, and Zara have the best range of giant scarves to drape yourself in (followed closely by ASOS who also have a pretty extensive offering). I saw Kate wearing this one and just knew I had to have it.
4. Luxurious Leather
If you're feeling generous here, you could splash out and get your loved one that Chanel handbag they've been lusting over forever. But if, like most people's, your budget won't stretch that far - perhaps a smart pair of leather gloves or for those who like to be organised - one of these super cute slogan notebooks from Smythson (the latter is at the top of my list to Santa this year). My personal pick though, would be one of these Whistles card holders - I snapped up this burgundy snakeskin number a couple of weeks back and think it makes the perfect little addition inside an evening clutch (as opposed to the usual giant purse filled with approx 147 train tickets/receipts that I usually end up lugging around - leaving little room for any added extras!).
Of course there's the 'Something Sexy' option that you could consider as well - but I have a whole post of it's own to dedicate to that next week, along with a little something for all you make-up mavens out there ;)
Until then though, what's on everyone else's wishlist this year? Mine is currently a little lacking, so I need some inspiration!
