Is to be more bloody organised... Honestly - every year I say the same thing, but it never happens!
So if you're as last-minute as I am and are still looking for some gift ideas I've pulled together some of my favourites here.
Find out your loved ones' shoe size and buy them these Hallelujah ankle boots from TopShop, now £40 (were £69). They are very similar to a stunning pair from Jimmy Choo. Don't do what I would do and buy them for yourself! What is not to love, they are heaven!
Party dress central is over at Coast and their sale is now on - so there is every chance you can grab a bargain. I'm a huge fan of a cape and this Bostock faux fur neutral one is now just £59 (was £119). Very glam and the colour if a great option to pair with so many things.
A beautiful long pendant style necklace is a fantastic choice for so many body shapes. This Coast Lottie longline necklace is now £12 (was £25). The three elements to it make it a really versatile piece too.
If you're going to buy a Christmas jumper it may as well be one they might wear again. So this lovely bejewelled sweatshirt from Stradivarius, £25.99 is one that has enough bling to be Christmas-jumper worthy without looking like an extra from a Bridget Jones film.
Oh holy moly this sequin dress from Zara, £89.99 is amazing. Get the wrong size and then you can wear it yourself! I fear I've veered off Christmas shopping gift ideas and have launched into what I'd like. This is fairly typical though of all my shopping purchases...
Stay focused woman! Back to the gifts..
As far as I'm concerned earrings can't be too long or sparkly! These from Zara, £12.99 are a good example of a pair I would most definitely wear.
The stunning Lumi layered necklace from Anthropologie, £68 is a real statement piece.
Alternatively Anthropologie also have a beautiful but delicate pair of Tania hoop earring, £30.
Reiss also have their sale on and have some fantastic offers including their Tracey embellished knitted top now £65 (was £130) which is a gorgeous powder grey colour.
Oh and they have a stunning Fedora hat, the 'Ava' in the same colour, £60.
Also in the Reiss sale their Gypsy faux fur scarf in soft blush is now £70 (was £90).
Hopefully their are some ideas there that might help if you're still in denial it's Christmas next week. Failing that I find gin, red wine, cheese or any type of heeled shoe will tick the boxes for me every time!
Wishing you a very Happy Christmas and do get in touch with any blog requests for over the Christmas period and into the New Year.
