I’m a huge fan of the Christmas gift guides that some magazines print in their December editions, I love looking through them and getting inspired!
This year my parents have said that they would like to just give me some spending money for Christmas and then just get a couple of surprises to open on Christmas day. I think this is a good idea as I can get some things I want and give them to the Hubby to keep for me until Christmas morning.
So I thought it would be fun to do my own little Christmas gift guide! These are the things I’m thinking about getting for myself, I also think these would make lovely gifts for others too.
Obviously I love my foodie treats! My wish list includes flavoured coffees, Teapigs tea and matcha powder, my favourite violet and rose cream chocolates, raw chocolate and crackers and of course, a cook book is always welcome!

Don’t ask me why but I’m a sucker for animal jewellery – combine that with some bling and I’m sold. I also love beautiful vintage style underware. I may not be able to stretch to Agent Provocateur just yet, but luckily the high street have some pretty good versions. Slippers are a must at Christmas and a pretty purse is ideal for stashing my January sales money away!
