I have an inkling of what I want for Christmas and I must admit to having scoured the shops. This by no means ensures I receive the things I actually want. Style loving ladies I urge you to write a gift list.
Have a peak at some fabulous ideas to put on it …
Knitted and Nice
This Ridley flecked scarf (£18) is so cute and cheerful just perfect for these frosty winter days
and how could you not go for the matching ridley hat (£12) again in a chunky, cheerful knit.
Up up and away
I just love this hot air balloon necklace from Ginger Pickle at Joy . It is made form birch plywood and comes with an antique gold chain. Quirky and fun!
You can see the full Joy accessory range here.
Let it rain….
If we have to embrace the British weather at this time of year we may as well do it in style. I am absolutely loving the array of stylish umbrellas offered by Fulton and this Cath Kidston umbrealla in particular caught my eye. So very ‘British countryside’ in design It has a span of 102cm, a wooden handle and wood finish on tips and fibreglass ribs for flexibility and strength in high winds.
Time for fun
I love a new watch. I have a watch for practical days, an elegant gold watch for special occasions and this absolute treasure from Avon is the perfect sparkly watch for Christmas…simple bangle clasp and lots of diamante. Just spangly.

Smell the coffee
Christmas can be exhausting so a nice strong coffee is a great way to get you up and going when you have had a late night the night before.
I just absolutely love this Moca Express stove top pot from Bialetti which makes gorgeous Italian coffee in just minutes. Such an iconic coffee maker and such a perfect gift for a coffee lover. Available from Amazon and many other outlets
A super easy espresso maker makes a really lovely gift.

Writing your thanks you’s
Nice pens are one of my favourite things and beautiful fashion accessories in their own right
This Faber-Castell Ambition Sand Ballpoint Pen is simply stunning and I have to tell you I have written with it and it glides like a dream. Simple, elegant and classy and perfect for all those thank you letters. Available from Amara and arrange of lovely pen shops.
Also available as a fountain pen.
Even the most stylish lady needs to keep cosy and I have to say this trapper hat from the Edinburgh Wollen Mill ticks both boxes for me. It is a style classic and a bit of quirky English fun.
So I hope these ideas have given you ideas!
