Gifts, gifts, gifts

It’s that time of year again when you are trying to guess what your loved ones would like, concerns about it being the right choice, avoiding duplications and for sure not to have picked something that’s going to end up in their re-gifting pile!

Whilst I’ve been out looking at all the sparkle the last few weeks, I couldn’t help but have a little nosey in the gifting section… my choices below are not for men or for the kids, but it may help you out with special friends, sisters, mum and that special female in your life that has helped you one way or another in 2017. Alternatively you could look at it as a potential list to buy for yourself, well it’s not like I’m going to say anything 😉

If you have a store near you and you’ve not been before, I highly recommend a visit. I lost nearly and hour in there just mooching around, they have so many diverse items and the majority of it is for women.

Here are some of the items I loved…

Personalisation is a big trend and it’s nice to have something with your initials on, it’s like using the tippex to write your name on the stapler! This Alphabet range also includes a wash bag, pencil case, travel card holder and a shopper bag.

Alphabet Make-up Bag

I have to caveat this item with it’s not a standard size mug, this Hello Gorgeous mug is smaller although it’s bigger than an espresso cup! I think it’s cute and a perfect little something for a young woman if you are unsure what her tastes are.

Now I bought this item for myself, I’ve been looking for a card holder for months, and at £12 I really don’t think you can go wrong. Everyone has a need for a card holder, whether it’s for nights out when they don’t want to carry their purse, or to stick their train ticket in or simply to use for their business cards.This two tone gold/grey is not real leather but I’m really pleased with the quality.

They have lots of choice of colour and style ranging from £12-£19.50

H&M Homeware

I have to give credit to my niece Ellie for this one, I didn’t know H&M did homeware, a recent visit together at Westfield Shopping Centre in Shepherds Bush had the range and it left me thinking how fabulous some of the items were! They have quite a lot of the collection online, and so here are a few things you could consider as potential gifts.

I’ve picked Oasis as my last choice of store, as coming back to personalisation they offer a monogramming service which costs £5 for up to 10 letters or symbols. They do not do it in store, so you have to build in time to get this service should you wish to choose it – but what a lovely personal touch!

Here are some ideals for you, from their website

And don’t forget this time of year is not about spending the most, because you really don’t have to. If your gift is thoughtful and relevant, regardless that it’s cheap as chips, then it’s going to valuable to the recipient, especially because it came from YOU!
