It can be so difficult coming up with gift ideas for all those special people in your lives when there is so much else to think about in the run up to the festive season. So fear not Very shoppers because I am here, your fairy godmother of all things fashion fabulous, to steer you in the right direction. I have some delightful gift ideas for girls, boys, men and all you lovely ladies.
Ladybird Jersey Dress and Leggings This two piece is so on trend I want it myself. The stripes, the colours, the bow, the asymmetric hems. The design details are ticking all my fashion boxes. Shame it’s only for ages ages 2-7.
French Connection Owl Knitted Dress It’s all about the animals this season and womenswear is covered in dogs, cats, panthers, monkeys, dinosaurs and on and on the fashion menagerie goes. Impress all 4-15 year olds with your fashion knowledge and get this cute owl knit dress by French Connection.
Freespirit Rizzo Work Boots I LOVE these boots. It’s the contrast of tough styled work boots with silver and sparkle that does it for me. They will look amazing dressed down with jeans and leggings and will rock when styled with tights and party dresses. Another ‘I want for myself’.
South Glam Coloured Faux Fur Coat A faux (naturally) fur is the gift for women who want a bit more glam in their lives. Chubby furs are a big trend in coats and they will be around for a good few seasons to come. This unusual petrol blue is a lovely colour choice. It’s the perfect New Year’s Eve cover up and will look super with your skinny indigo jeans for plenty big nights out in 2012.
Sterling Silver Pave Ring is luxurious and decadent without being too ‘blingy’. If it’s for the lady in your life you could even call it an eternity ring and watch her melt…or run for the door, depending on how good you’ve been!
Sorbet Sillabub Slipper Boots These lovely bootees will never come off your feet around the house – so comfy, so cosy, so chic. You’ll want to wear them out…and with a pair of skinny jeans, why not.
Levi’s Shawl Cardigan is very wearable as it’s quite rugged, tough and practical looking. I think men can be put off by cardigans as fine knits cardigans can be quite clingy but this one is chunky and will suit almost all men.
Ben Sherman Qewy Brogues Every man should have a pair of brown brogues. They look soooooo good with jeans and the new shape cords. When The Farmer (my new man) wore his brown brogues on our most recent date I literally swooned. Black brogues are also gorgeous but strictly for work.
French Connection Bristol Messenger Bag Now choosing a bag for a man is tricky. It wants to be cool, durable, rugged and without a whiff of femininity to it. Go for this gorgeous messenger bag. It reminds me of a fashion photographer’s bag with it’s vintage design and on trend colours. Very hot…like most fashion photographers.
Ladybird Shawl Collar Jumper Does boyswear get any cuter than this? I almost want to pop one out just so I can dress him in this adorable jumper. Loving the on trend skull motifs and the primary colours. For ages 2 – 7
Tommy Hilfiger Boys Trapper Hat Keeping heads warm and looking cool at the same time. What more could you want from a hat!
Ben Sherman Boys Short Sleeve Polo Shirt Make a Mod out of him in this super cool polo shirt. It’s the iconic target motif and the bright red colourway that does it for me. Ages 1 – 9.
And finally, not forgetting me. I’ll have a baby Alpaca please, Father Christmas.
Failing that it’s got to be the 9 carat white gold diamond studs. Ahem, no they’re not cheap, but there’s no harm in asking. Fingers crossed the farmer is reading! x
