Once again I’ve trawled the web for the ultimate festive gift guide that caters for all budgets and should have you covered, whomever the lucky recipient is. So if it’s a Secret Santa that’s got you scratching your head, or a special someone that has you stumped, look no further…


A LITTLE SOMETHING…

I’ve put this one slap bang at the top because I quite often think that this is the trickiest category to buy for; especially if you’ve been dealt a Secret Santa where you don’t know the person too well and you want to get them something nice, but on a reduced budget. So I’m pretty chuffed with that I’ve found here – everything is under £15 and I’ve really tried to find helpful, nice to receive gifts, you know? In terms of food, you can always go down the edible gift route, but these Hotel Chocolat Dark Chocolate Batons* are a classic, along with this Black Bomber Extra Mature Cheddar Cheese*. If you think beauty would be a good idea then there’s always this Nails Inc Teddy Nail Polish Set*, this Dr Jart+ Mask* or this Jo Malone Fragrance Discovery Set*. My top picks though? This Sui Ava Big Hairgrip* and this HKLiving Swirl Wine Glass* – they are just lovely, lovely gifts. Find more Secret Santa gift ideas here*.

CLOTHING & CASHMERE…

I feel like if you’re going for clothing, then it’s probably best to stick to comfy, cosy classics – everyone loves those. Of course the Soho Home Bath Robe* is a classic, but I love that there is an option to get it personalised for £10 extra, and also the UGG Scuffette Slippers*, I’m literally writing this post now as I’m wearing mine (plus love a Cashmere Sock* too). In terms of matching sets, you know I’m an ARKET girl and I own two out of three of these sets and can attest to just how LUSH they are to wear. For something on the lower end of the price scale check out these French Terry Sweatpants* and Jumper* (I wear both of mine in a M). But if it’s cashmere that you’re after then look no further than this Oversized Cashmere Roll-Neck Jumper* and Trousers* set, or this Cashmere Hoodie* and Knitted Cashmere Trousers* set. Find more clothing and cashmere gift ideas here*.

A BEAUTY LOVERS DREAM…

If you’re after something special; here a three high-end lip products that I just adore: the Victoria Beckham Lipsticks (I love Pout and Girl), the Augustinus Bader Lip Balm* and the Hermes Rosy Lip Perfector*. Fragrance is always a solid choice too; I love the Glossier You* and Maison Margiela When The Rain Stops* for perfumes and the Beauty Pie Fig & Redcurrant* and Glossier Body Hero* candles. For bigger buys I’d recommend the NARS Unrated Eyeshadow Palette*, the Westman Atelier Blender Brush* (this is the brush I use for my base every single day), and the Aromatherapy Associates Ultimate Wellness Bath & Shower Oil Collection* (currently 25% off!). There’s also 20% off this Space NK The Essential Radiance Kit*, which has some cracking skincare finds in it. Find more gift ideas for beauty lovers here*.

FOR THE FOODIES…

I feel like the classic gift for foodies is an apron and I LOVE this White Company Cross-Back Linen Apron*, it’s just so damn chic. In terms of ‘handy to have’ kitchen tools, these Naturally Med Olive Wood Salad Servers* will up your table-scraping game, this Alessi Vegetable Peeler* looks incredible and then a good quality Grater* will change your life in the kitchen. A nest set is a great idea if your recipient loves to cook but is a little tight on space – *Joseph Joseph do the best ones. A foodie who packs themselves a lunch everyday must have a Personalised Lunchbox* and we use the Always Pan* ALL THE TIME – nothing does eggs quite like it (plus it’s currently 30% off!). Find more gift ideas for foodies here*.

SOMETHING FOR THE HOME…

For the interiors obsessed here are a few of my favourite finds that have caught my eye. This ByOn Curve Caramel Plate* is such a fan statement piece and something that both lovers of neutral and quirky interiors would be happy to receive, or for some slightly more budget friendly tableware I’d recommend these Ferm Living Ripple Glasses* or these Still Mugs*. If they love a print then this Waiting Print* is just stunning – frame it for them before gifting for extra brownie points! – of if they are someone who always has fresh flowers out then this Nordal Rill Vase in Amber* is something a bit different. For someone who is always hosting, you can’t go wrong with this T&G Revolving Platter* – perfect for hosting a sharing board. Find more gift ideas for the home here*.

FOR THE ORGANISED ONE…

I don’t usually do a gift guide for this category, but this is category that I KNOW, because hey – it’s me. Mark if you’re reading – I would please like anything from this list, thank you. I’m going to start with clothing care which I know isn’t necessarily organisation per se, but it’s a nice gift for someone who likes to care for their things and feels sustainably minded too. I’d go for the holy trinity of some kind of fabric de-bobbler, either a Cashmere Comb* or the Steamery Fabric Shaver*, a nice Laundress Wool & Cashmere Wash* and a steamer like the Steamery No3 Iron Steamer*. These HAY Plastic Crates* are so handy and make for a great starting point for a DIY gift basket. Plus I can’t talk about organisation without plugging ‘An Edited Life‘*, a great kick-starter for the new year if I do say so myself. Find more gift ideas for organised ones here*.

FOR THE FITNESS FANATIC…

This is a new category for me to cover this year, but if your gift recipient can often be seen rocking a black leggings, cropped fleece and a baseball cap look then this is the category for you. Of course my number pick is going to be the Lululemon Align High-Rise Pants*, nothing comes close to these – like are literally like wearing butter on your body. Incredible. Don’t sleep on the matching Bra* or the Shorts* either, these are great for summer. And I feel like it gets slept on a lot but the Lululemon Yoga Mats* are just the best in my opinion. If you’d like to get them a matching set that is a little more budget-friendly, then I love the Adanola Moss Green Tank* and Leggings*. Some other great options are the Sweaty Betty Run Gloves* (currently 25% off!), the New Balance 574’s* or this Nike Oversized Fleece Sweatshirt* (again currently 25% off!).

LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOY…

I know a lot of you eagerly await Mark’s Q4 edit as it’s basically a bumper edition of gift ideas for the guys in your life and you’ll be pleased to know that it’s here! So definitely check that out if you’re after 40+ ideas of what a man *actually* wants. But he’s picked out the real highlights for us to share here. He uses this Kinto Travel Tumbler* every single day for his morning coffee and other must-haves in his daily rotation include the Kiehl’s Facial Fuel Men’s Face Wash* and these Carhartt Jogging Bottoms* (for size reference he wears a L). The Jason Markk Premium Suede Shoe Cleaning Kit* is something I would personally find so useful, the Universal Works Fine Cord Worker Shirt* is one of those classic pieces that you’ll both want to wear and these Chup Socks* might be a bit of a pricey purchase, but they just look so fun (and have 20% off with the code BLACKFRIDAY20).

FOR THE LITTLES…

With more than a year of motherhood under my belt now, I feel like I’ve got some pretty good ideas for any littles in your life that fall into the newborn to toddler category. The Lovevery Play Gym* is the gift that just keeps giving – we’ve used it every day since Ralph was born and he still uses it now as a little playhouse to sit in. Slightly more budget-friendly buys for those under six months include the Jellycat Jungly Tails Soft Book*, Wee Gallery Crinkle Acorn Toy*, or the Sophie La Giraffe Teether* – it’s a classic for a reason! If they are sitting up then you can’t go wrong with a set of Stacking Cups* (easily one of our most played with toys!), the Little Dutch Spiral Tower* or a Felt Flap Book*. Then once they get on their feet a pull along toy is just THE CUTEST thing to watch them play with – Ralph loves Pepe* – and also a set of building blocks; we get out this Lovevery Block Set* every single day.
