Lauren's Christmas Gift Guide


paperchase christmas 2016
Oh Paperchase, your combination of classic, quirky, cool and pretty is just right for a 21st century girl! With fantastic gifts, decorations and wrapping options, it's a one stop shop to kick off your Christmas shopping.

paperchase silver ribbon
When it comes to wrapping and sending my gifts, the gorgeous Silver glossy bow, Grey flock bow, Satin bow and Grosgrain ribbons will ensure that my silver colour scheme isn't missed. I adore ribbons and bows, and if you aren't going to be elaborate in wrapping up at Christmas, when can you be?

paperchase gift bows
I love dotting the pre-made bows onto the main gifts for family and friends, with longer hand tied ribbons draping over presents under the tree. The Robins on Red greetings cards will be perfect for extended family, with a luxurious look and feel paired with a classic design.

When it comes to decorating the flat, I love to go mad. The last weekend of November will see my decs go up and I need to be creative whilst renting as putting pins and nails in the walls isn't allowed. The mini glass star sequin baubles are probably the cutest thing I've ever seen, tiny glass shells filled with glittery starry sequins, I'll be stringing them up on my tree to the beautiful sound of Michael Bublé.

On the inside of my door will be this pretty mistletoe wreath so that all guests feel the love when they come in. I adore mistletoe and already have a good collection of mistletoe themed decorations, so this wreath will be the crowning glory. A fresh wreath will cost upwards of £20, so this fantastic quality faux one is a steal at £15, and kept properly will last years!

Finally, notebooks always make lovely gifts and this Reach for the Stars one is an inspirational gift to give someone. Bound and embossed, the book feels really expensive when in fact it is super affordable!

Boots make such a perfect Christmas gift as the wearer will have a good three months (at least) in them and there really isn't anything better than putting your new Christmas clothes on when the 27th December hits. These Laura Ashley boots are a classic style and shape, with a good heel (which isn't too high) and made from a luxurious suede. They fall just below the knee, so for any dress wearers would be perfect.

Laura Ashley is the ultimate goal in home ware- most of my parents home growing up was styled in their amazing quality and beautiful fabrics. The silver bell garland in the Christmas decoration collection this year will be gorgeous draped in my flat above the tree- and a great entry into Laura Ashley home! The bells are real too and fabulous quality, a lovely touch!


neom travel candle
When I was younger, I always liked to receive self-indulgent gifts- bath bombs, make up and the like, however, in my mid twenties, self-indulgent has a whole new meaning. This Neom candle is the travel sized tranquility jar and is utter luxury. Full sized Neom candles come with a hefty price tag, so this mini version is a lovely gift for luxury candle lover. With notes of sweet basil, lavender and jasmine you will be giving the gift of relaxation to the lucky recipient of this candle.

Capturing images is part of everyday life with smart phones now, however, printing out the best ones and putting them in frames is something often overlooked. I always used to give my parents and grandparents lovely photographs in frames as presents and it is something I want to start doing more- what better to give than a lovely memory! This simple silver plated photoframe from Heal's is lovely quality and simple enough to be the perfect gift to fit into any home style.

annie haak hoop earrings
I'm much more of silver coloured girl than gold, and these Annie Haak pieces will make perfect gifts for friends and family. The tassel bracelet is super cute, and just the right amount of detail to still be understated but eye catching. Dressed up or worn for casual days, this bracelet is beautifully elegant and would be a lovely present.

For hoop lovers (yes they are making a comeback and I couldn't be happier!), these hammered silver hoops are the ideal modern update to the classic hoop. The hammered detailing gives them a pretty twist and makes them super wearable. The wrapping on Annie Haak products is utterly gorgeous- opulent purple- so festive! 


guess rose gold bangleguess rose gold bangle
We adore Rose Gold at PPOMG HQ and this gorgeous Pearl and Crystal bangle would be the perfect gift for your bestie wrapped up underneath the tree. We love how it is quirky yet classic at the same time (hard to achieve!) with the slightly off-balance size of the details. It's also a bit of a bargain- looking super luxe and pricey, but for just £50.

cath kidston robin christmas jumpercath kidston robin christmas jumper
Oh My. The Cath Kidston Christmas jumpers this year are our absolute favourite. They'd make a lovely festive gift for a friend, or the perfect December garment for yourself. For me, it has to be the Robin. I'm usually hugely anti-birds-on-clothing, but Robins at Xmas are an exception as my middle name is Robyn and I'm silly like that! This light knit is perfect for work or dressed up for a festive lunch! That sequin bow detail is utter perfection. 


lee stafford hair dryerlee stafford hair dryer
A good hair dryer is a good investment and should last you years. My current one has just conked out after over 5 years of service and so a new one is just the ticket. The Dryer from Lee Stafford gives the blow dry effect that you've been after- as if you have just stepped out from the salon. The long life motor will give the longevity needed (as mentioned) and the power will give healthy and shiny hair in the finished style. This dryer would be the perfect gift for a mum or sister who loves the salon.

Burt's Bees are a household favourite for us, and their adorable gift sets make the perfect stocking filler for beauty lovers. The mini Bit of Burt's sets have one of their classic lipbalms, and then a cuticle butter (my ultimate skin hero) and at just over £5 they are the perfect stocking filler or secret santa gift. For those looking to spend a little more, the Nature's Gift tin features some classic products including the Coconut foot cream and Soap Bark & Camomile Cleansing Cream- happy gifting!
