Those of you who follow my YouTube channel may be familiar with my annual Gift Guide series. Last year I expanded it to include Pinterest boards too (you can check out this year’s board here) and this year I thought it would be nice to share a closer look at some of the gifts in my videos, and a lot more… over on here! You an check out my Gift Guide For HER video at the bottom of this post, but below are my top 30 picks for girly gifts this year! My Best Beauty Gifts post is already up here, but come back later in the week for my men’s Gift Guide and the Stocking Filler edition! Happy Shopping! 🙂
Olivia Burton is one of my favourite brands for gorgeous, yet affordable watches and this season they’ve launched a gorgeous collection called ‘Abstract Florals’ – This is my top pick from that collection,but they also do so many classic, simple styles – so many of my friends either already own or want one of their watches, you can’t go too far wrong! I’m also giving away this watch, the bee earrings below and a voucher for £200 over on my Instagram right now, you can head over here to enter it!
2. Oliver Bonas ‘Dance With Me’ Jumper, £49.50
Christmas jumpers don’t make for a great Christmas gift, as by the time you receive them, the season is almost over… but I love this one from Oliver Bonas (who on a side note, have AMAZING gifts this year, hence you’ll be seeing a lot of them in this post!) works for Christmas time and beyond! Love it.
3. Monica Vinader Signature Rings, From £55
One of my ultimate favourite gifts this year are the new Monica Vinader Signature rings. I adore the Monica Vinader Signature bracelets that the brand launched a couple of years ago now (I actually own four in different variations and wear them all the time) This Christmas they’ve released the ring versions which are fabulous for a few different reasons. Firstly, I adore the design – so simple and classic, yet unique at the same time. Secondly, they come in three different widths (like the bracelets) which all look really different when worn, all in silver, rose gold or gold AND all come in diamond versions too – so you can really mix and match to create your perfect ‘stack’ of rings, or wear them alone. I personally love the thin ones the most, with one diamond version in the middle (again, I’m giving away a stack of these on my instagram this week – exciting!) Prices start from £55 for the thin silver ring, and go up to £375 for the wide diamond styles so they have lots of options for different budgets. I think they are lovely.
4. Salted Caramel Dreams Cookbook, £12.99
Because who doesn’t love Salted Caramel?!
5. Olivia Burton Bee Earrings, £40
Another pick from Olivia Burton, I adore these tiny Bee studs. They come in both gold and rose gold depending on who you’re buying for. The bee is a signature style for Olivia Burton, it appears on a lot of their watches too as well as across their lovely range of jewellery, so if you want to get a watch or necklace to go with these you can. I think they are a brilliant price point at £40 and come beautifully packaged in a grey velvet pouch and floral box.
Perfect for those who travel a lot – this cute little travel jewellery box won’t break the bank at £18 but is a thoughtful little gift for jewellery lovers on the go.
7. Warehouse Knitted Hat, £15
You can’t go wrong with a bobble hat for a Christmas gift or stocking – I love this one from Warehouse with it’s giant bobble! I have a really similar one from Topshop a couple of years ago and wear it all the time!
One of my all time favourite scents from Jo Malone, Dark Amber & Ginger Lily also comes in a candle version – I always think Jo Malone goodies are simply the best choice for those people who have everything… it’s always exciting to see one of their boxes under the tree! They also do loads of special limited edition scents and sets for the festive period, so I would really recommend checking out their selection if you are buying for that difficult person who is ‘impossible’ to buy for!
9. Oliver Bonas Grey Scarf, £35
Oliver Bonas have a gorgeous selection of scarves this year, definitely worth a look if you have the time! They have a big selection of graphic designs, some of which I included in my Gift Guide video that you can see below, but I also love this cosy grey one – super soft and warm, but simple and elegant at the same time.
10. Anthropologie Initial Mug, £8
Anthropologie is another one of my go-to places to shop for Christmas gifts. They always do cute initial mugs and trinket dishes and this year they’ve released this lovely new initial design. Perfect for a little stocking filler or secret santa gift, it’s something that won’t break the bank but still looks like you’ve made an effort (I also love to fill these with a whole chocolate orange or other festive treats, wrap it up in cellophane with a big bow – such a lovely gift to receive and it costs less than a tenner!)
11. Roberts Digital Radio, £179.99
Classic Roberts Radios are the perfect addition to any interior-lovers kitchen. They are pricey but they are simply so much better looking than any other radios on the market.
12. Dior Mitzah Scarf, £150
This was one of the most luxury items I included in my video this year (albeit in a different colour!) But I think these Dior scarves make such a lovely gift if you want to buy something designer, but don’t have thousands to spend. Very similar to the classic Hermes Twilly’s – Dior always have slightly more modern designs and I generally love them. This Christmas they have these pretty constellation-based designs that have stars on one side and phases of the moon on the other. Such a nice way to update a handbag strap, tie round your wrist, neck or in your hair.
13. Anthropologie Pom Pom Slip Ons, £68
These little pom pom slippers are so adorable! They are quite pricey but I adore them – such a fun design (I know my mum would love these!)
14. Anthropologie Stardust Notebook, £10
Another star-studded gem from Anthropologie, this cute faux-leather notebook is so adorable and again, definitely won’t break the bank.
15. Debenham’s Bear Pyjama’s, £32
My personal favourite pick of Pyjamas this year (I actually own these and can tell you… they are SO cosy!) There are always so many festive PJ picks this time of year, it’s always a hotly contended category in my videos but I adore these – not sexy in the slightest, but super cute with their little bear face and matching face mask!
16. Urbanista Wireless Headphones, £89
I love these rose gold and white leather headphones. I also love ‘big’ over-ear headphone for longer train and plane journeys as they make you feel like you’re in your own little world.
17. Anthropologie Patterned Phone Case, £34
Another cute pick from Anthropologie’s festive lineup!
18. Loewe Star Card Holder, £250
Loewe is a brand that doesn’t get as much airtime as it deserves in my opinion, as their designs are so lovely and such gorgeous quality. I’m a massive fan of card holders in general and this little navy star one is so adorable.
19. Adidas Campus Trainers , £60
I’ve had my eye on a pair of these pastel suede Adidas trainers for ages now and I love these pretty rose ones.
20. Anthropologie Initial Keyring, £16
I received one of these gorgeous initial tassels keyring as a gift from my mum recently and I absolutely adore it – Such a cute little gift… again this is a great one for one of those people who has ‘everything’ – It’s cute, personalised and always nice to have a new keyring on your house keys! I also love that it’s got a little clip, as I often clip my house keys to my car keys – very convenient!
21. Rockbox Speaker, £40
One of the cutest portable wireless speakers I’ve seen in a while, and it’s not too expensive either! Love this.
22. Monica Vinader Bracelet, £295
Another cute design from Monica Vinader. I could literally show you 50 styles from her site that I love, but I think this little evil eye chain bracelet is so simple, yet elegant.
23. Swell Printed Water Bottle, £42
I have a couple of swell bottles and use them all the time. They are great as they keep your cold drinks cool for 24 hours and hot drinks warm for 12 hours. Perfect for the gym, or for your morning coffee en route to work (especially if you’re a slow drinker like me!) They are pricey, but last ages and come in so many different colours and finishes, I love this ombre one.
24.UGG Mittens, £120
Every item I’ve ever bought from Ugg has been such great quality and lasted for years – These mittens are super cute and warm – perfect if you’re buying for someone who lives in a cold climate!
25. Instax Mini 9 Poloroid Camera, £79
Maybe one of the most popular gifts for the past couple of years, but this is something I received from Mike last year and I use it all the time – such a perfect way to actually end up with print outs from Christmas Day, New Year etc. I love framing mini polaroids too, and so many places sell special little frames for them now.
26. Urban Outfitters Winky Eye Slippers, £18
They aren’t going to replace my 2 year old Ugg slippers just yet, but how cute are these winking ones from Urban Outfitters?! Again, I think Urban are so brilliant at Christmas gifting… I never fail to find gifts in there.
27. Vogue ‘The Covers’ Coffee Table Book, £45
This book is so gorgeous and would make the perfect gift for anyone into fashion – Vogue covers throughout the years. This is definitely one I would love to add to my coffee table in 2018.
28. Salt Plains Double Wick Candle, £28
Another gem from Anthropologie – I love both the look and the s cent of this candle. Anthropolgie’s selection of candles are always the most affordable but they kick off serious scent and I find I always want to re-use the bowl or glass when they have finished.
29. Anthropologie Passport & Luggage Set, £20
This luggage tag and passport cover are super cute – perfect for those who like to travel!
30. Crosley Record Player, £89
Old fashioned record players have been having a bit of a moment over the past couple of years. This pastel pink Crosley one is the prettiest one I’ve seen!
