Felicity's Christmas Gift Guide


paperchase christmas 2016
Wrapping presents is probably my favourite part of Christmas and, as always, it's all about the little details. The gorgeous ribbons, bows and gift tags from Paperchase this year is just insane - I love the mix of classic and contemporary styles! I'll be going for a mix for my wrapping (think classic brown paper with velvet ribbon and novelty tags, or super cool printed paper with jute string). 🎁

I love a good gift tag, it's the perfect finishing touch; the Nutcracker soldiers were an immediate fave (with moveable arms and legs, I mean c'mon)! Tied to a big present with the gorgeous red velvet ribbon, these are bound to raise a smile. For my girl gang, the pretty Wish Upon a Star 🌟 tags work just as well tied to a gift as they do a bottle of prossecco (and a nice nod to the season without going overboard). 

paperchase christmas snow globe tree decorations
We are still in transition with the house move, so we will be decorating our family homes with anything new, taking pieces with us to our new house for next Christmas too! 🎄 I love gold and as it will be a big part of the wedding, the gold star garland will be the ultimate memento for me to drape above our bed. I'll also be adding these cute mini snow globe baubles to my family tree - there's something so magical about snow globes, and these in miniature are just the right side of festive.
paperchase merry and bright christmas cards
Finally, come early December I always whack on the Bublé, make a big cup of Earl Grey and get writing Christmas cards. These Merry & Bright ones from Paperchase are perfect; in navy and Tiffany blue, they're the perfect way to share season's greetings with friends. I'll be flexing those calligraphy muscles to make envelopes extra pretty this year!

laura ashley tan leather ankle bootslaura ashley tan leather ankle boots
I've had a good pair of boots for Christmas before and they are the perfect present. Classic tan is always a winner and these boots from Laura Ashley are fantastic quality as well as bang on trend. In a simple design with the zip at the back, they would be a lovely gift for any stylish lady.

laura ashley mulled spice christmas candleCandles are perfect no matter the occasion and this Mulled Spice candle from Laura Ashley smells divine. In a simple glass jar (and at a great price), this would make a beautiful gift for extended family or to take along to a Christmas party as an alternative (or in addition!) to a bottle of wine. 🍷

I'll hopefully have a few of my wedding snaps through by the time Christmas comes around, and I cannot wait to snuggle in front of the fire and reminisce about the day. This enamel Tiffany blue frame is perfect for a black and white snap, wrapped up and ready to gift to a loved one. I love how special and luxe it is - just what I'm looking for!

orla kiely lavender candleWe've enjoyed Orla Kiely candles before, so I know this will go down a storm. Lavender is up there with my favourite scents for a candle (after Neroli of course!) - it's a great fail-safe if you aren't 100% sure on your recipient's favourite fragrance. A lovely gift wrapped up for a friend or neighbour, or a lucky stocking filler for family too. The jar is just adorable too- right?! 🕯


annie haak heart earrings
As you know I love gold gold and gold again. Our much loved Annie Haak have some stunning gold pieces which make beautiful, affordable presents to add sparkle to anyone's Christmas Day. In royal purple satin bags and boxes, they're super luxurious for any lucky recipient! These crystal heart earrings are tiny and beautiful. I'm usually not that into hearts, but as these are so dainty, they would make such a special gift for someone close to your own.

annie haak elephant charm braceletI also love the charm bracelets at Annie Haak this year, offering something a little different to the classic Pandora or Links of London charm bracelet (not that there are any problems there!). They are really understated and the charms are beautifully made. I've a special someone in mind for this little elephant charm; I know they're going to love it! ✨


cath kidston christmas jumpers
Browsing through the Cath Kidston look book, I actually did a little dance on finding Billy on a jumper. 🐶 I'm a huge dog lover, and Cath have really pulled out all the stops this Christmas, particularly when it comes to snuggly bits. This Billy jumper is a gorgeous chunky red knit, warm and ideal for a Boxing Day walk. Whilst seasonally red, it isn't 'I'M A CHRISTMAS JUMPER' - meaning I'll be snuggled up in it well into January without feeling silly!

cath kidston billy jumperIf you are stuck for gifts for anyone then do head to Cath Kidston. I've spotted gorgeous pieces on there for everyone from grandparents to new arrivals- and all with the classic Cath quality. Sold! 


urban decay naked basics palette
If you're buying for someone obsessed with makeup, it can be a bit daunting to know what to buy them. The rise of beauty blogs means that people are more educated and informed about the 'next big thing' and brands move super quickly to get their next product out.

urban decay naked basics palette
With this in mind, we say the perfect gift for a makeup maven this Christmas? An eye palette from Urban Decay. This one is the latest instalment in their Naked range; the Naked Basics palette. Pulling out the best shades to create one amazing do-it-all palette (there is nothing basic about this), the gorgeous rose gold casing gives this a very luxurious feel. Lauren would absolutely love this, as eyeshadows are her thing and you can never have too many nude toned palettes! 


leighton denny light and dark perfumeI love a perfume for Christmas. There is something special about opening up a new scent on Christmas Day knowing someone has spent time thinking about what you'd like - there's something so personal and lovely about that. Leighton Denny Light and Dark Delightful is so wearable, with fruity and floral notes of blood orange, jasmine and watermelon - the perfect scent come spring. Whilst sweet it isn't sickly; the deeper notes of musk and lotus flower save it from a tween choice. Love it! 


burts bees treat christmas gift
Oh Burt, you've done it again. Christmas gifting a go-go, Burt's Bees have pulled out all the stops for their Christmas 2016 collection. With prices starting from as little as £5 for the stocking filler sized treats, Burt's Bees have all family members covered in their beautiful Christmas range.

I love this Burt's Bees Bag of Treats - with the classic lip balm, body lotion and deep pore scrub, it's all the favourites in one! The limited edition washbag is pretty and useful too (and makes wrapping a breeze)!

I'd love to know what you'd love to see under the tree this Christmas - anything tickle your fancy?
