Dear Mr Claus...

Seeing as there is now less than 10 days until Christmas *heavy breathing* I thought I'd put together a little list of beauty and fashion buys as well as other bits and bobs perfect for giving to a best-friend or to add to your own last minute wishlist. As much as you may like to be organised, there is always that one person you don't know what to get. If that's your dad, you're probably looking on the wrong website but if it happens to be for a girly friend, I hope this list will serve as inspiration.

The low-budget gift
If you need to quickly buy a Secret Santa or a stocking filler then Topshop is a good place to go. Currently the majority of their nail varnishes are down to £3, Little White Lie is a great shade for all year round.

Lingerie and cosy socks
If you know someone well this is a safe bet. My friend Mooman (it's a long story) has a cute pair of penguin socks which are now sold out, but the cat version would make a great gift (especially if the recipient has a black cat themselves). If you want something both personal and comical Topshop sell boypants with varying disney movies printed on them, such as this Toy Story number (these penguin ones are cute too). Urban Outfitters also sell underwear, I think this velvet and lace bra is really pretty.

The Lush Addict
Anyone who loves having baths is most likely going to love lush. The Melting Snowman is a cult classic and Star Light, Star Bright is also a great bath melt. The Christmas Penguin is also something I've wanted to try for a while (I'm sensing a bit of a penguin theme here haha).

Urban Outfitters Galore
Now I may be biased seeing as UO is my favourite shop but I think they do gifts really well. I have the Light Before Dark crop top in grey and my friend Ellis has it in black, it's a very wearable style that suits most body shapes. Back to cats, this mug is perfect for any cat obsessives. This duvet set would also suit most bedrooms and these fairylights are really pretty.

I've been a fan of We Are Hairy People for about two years now, and have been wanting this jumper since last Christmas. They currently have a special offer where if you buy one item, they will send you another item of a similar value as well. To find the code you need to visit their facebook page (the offer is to celebrate 10,000 likes and it doesn't seem fair to them if I just give it to you).

Have you left your Christmas shopping to the last minute? What's on your Christmas list?



  1. I'd never heard of we are hairy people but that jumper looks really cosy!!

  2. Oo I never thought about going on urban outfitters for gifts, so thank you ever so much. This is a great help for those who are forgetful, and you've put some genuinely enjoyable gift ideas here!
