With Christmas snapping at our ankles I thought it was high time I shared with you some of the lovely items I will be gifting to my loved ones this festive season.
I initially bought this wonderful Austin Austin hand cream as a birthday gift for my friend Sue and she was so delighted with it she’s getting it again for Christmas. Made with extracts of plants, grasses, algae and seaweed this product is totally GM free, organic and vegan. With a heady mix marjoram, palmarosa, veviter and lavender not only will your hands smell wonderful but will remain moisturised and protected against the winter chill.
My sister adores a luxurious knit and this stunning Leon and Harper jumper will be the perfect present for her. Made from a mix of mohair and wool, this crew neck leopard print piece is a timeless classic. I am confident that she will love it.
Who doesn’t love a scented candle? Well they don’t come any more beautiful and fragrant than this Ortigia Fico D’India decorated candle. Your room will be filled with the the heady tones of fig and cedar and the decorated glass creates a stunning effect as it burns for a full 35 to 40hrs. I’ll be gifting this to my aunt (and maybe a couple more people).
Christmas just wouldn’t be the same without a pair of socks to unwrap, so these Thunder’s Love Charlie Green and Pink beauties are coincidentally headed for my friend Charlie! He enjoys hiking across the fells in Cumbria and these 100% recycled cotton socks are comfortable and durable. The perfect gift for him (or her as they’re unisex).
My closest friend is a bit of a style icon and I’m confident this Castart cotton overshirt will look great on him. The loose workwear piece is perfect for layering and features three front patch pockets. I’m thinking I may even keep it for myself!!!
