Many of you will be well and truly engrossed in Christmas shopping by now, but for some of you, the list making is still a work in progress, so I’m hoping that this final offering of my Gift Guide series will help you along.
As this is a home styling and decor blog, I thought it only correct to include a gift edit aimed at the home lover or interiors enthusiast in your life! I have had lots of fun putting this last gift guide together and am secretly lusting after several of these items – in particular the super cute doggy jewellery bowl from Rose & Grey and of course the dinky digital radio, whose funky mustard colour would look fab against a very on-trend palette of white and grey… (also there is free UK delivery on all Rose & Grey orders placed up until New Year’s Eve, using the code NOEL so do take a look).

I hope you’ve had a lovely weekend, despite the relatively fickle weather we’ve been having! I am just back afresh from a weekend break with some old school friends to Edinburgh and I had the most relaxing and fun time – very good for the soul! I am now back and ready to inspire you further with some more Christmas gift ideas. If you haven’t already, pop over to my previous gift guides I wrote up last week. If you’re searching for a gift for a coffee loving friend or family member, check out these ideas here and if it’s the foodie or keen cook you’re buying for, have a look here.
These days, so many of us are constantly on the move and for many people, their jobs take them across multiple cities and countries. As a result, we hop between airports, public transport and hotel rooms as a normal part of the day job and that is why I thought a gift edit focused on those who are on the move a lot would prove helpful to many.
Here are my picks for ladies (and a few for gents!) who travel…
I love the 1st of December as it finally marks the official countdown to Christmas and it’s gorgeous to see people’s homes being lit up one by one with cheery twinkling lights and welcoming trees. However, for some of us it also marks the beginning of a stressful few weeks struggling to find the right presents for everyone within a tight enough timeframe. BUT – do not fret! If you are starting your Christmas shopping or finding it difficult to find the perfect present for a loved one, then you’ve hopefully come to the right place. Over the next week or so, I’ll be doing a little online research to help you along with your Christmas shopping quest and will be putting together gift guides for the different personalities in your life. I have already put together a gift guide for the coffee loving friend we all have so do take a peek here if you fancy some inspiration on that front! Actually, while you’re at it, pour yourself a coffee and read on… (more…)
Over the next few days I’m going to post some gift guides to help you along with your Christmas shopping, especially when faced with buying presents for those ‘difficult to buy for’ people in your social or family circle. Basically, I’m hoping I can do the hard work for you and all you will have to do is click on the product link and buy! Done. Dusted.
When buying presents, the first thing we do is think about what the prospective gift receiver likes or has an interest in, so I thought I would organise my gift guides into types of people that we all have amongst our friends and family. The Coffee Aficionado. The Green Fingered Friend. The Foodie. The Gadget Freak. The Traveller. The Arty Crafty One. You know who I mean? Thought so. Ok, let’s get started…
