Christmas Gift Guide – Starting Early.

Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat, and many of us are making our lists now. It may seem a little early, after all, we’ve not yet had Halloween or Bonfire night, but with our lists getting longer each year, many of us would now prefer to start earlier, and have everything finished and organised earlier in order to beat that mad December rush.

So with this in mind, I am going to be sharing lots of gift ideas over the coming weeks, for men, woman and children, and at all different budgets and price points. Hopefully these will give some ideas if you are struggling a little.

A Timepiece From Watches2U

If you are looking for a gift for a fashion conscious wife or girlfriend, then a gift of a watch is always a good idea. You don’t have to worry about getting the right size, and if you opt for something classic, you can usually have a style that will suit all tastes.

Watches2U have a large collection of watches from a range of brands, including top designer ones. Their watches are beautifully packaged, look fabulous, and they currently have extended their guarantee to cover the Christmas period.

Designer names like Armani Exchange, Casio, Diesel, Radley and Kate Spade are all represented, but my current favourite is this practical and pretty design from Orla Kiely which is stylish and iconic with the leaf print face, but would also work well as an every day watch due to the neutral tan strap. At less than £55 I think this is a truly perfect Christmas gift for any woman in your life.

Fashion Accessories From Crew Clothing

Fashion Accessories are another great gift idea where you don’t actually need to know a person’s size in order to choose a great gift. Crew Clothing have recently launched their Autumn range and there are some seriously great pieces in the collection, including a couple that I have featured below,.

The Bailey Bag is a classic messenger bag in a Breton style stripe. It also has the advantage of being wipe clean and big enough for your cards, purse, keys, phone and your lippie.

Another no brainer when it comes to a seriously cute gift idea is a woolly hat. Pom Pom hats used to be very much the preserve of small children, but today they belong to everyone, especially if we are faced with a Winter of epic proportions like last year. I love the Kirby Cable Hat with its gorgeously fluffy pom pom design.

Eyejusters- The Adjustable Reading Glasses

If you are looking for a gift for someone who wears glasses, and is sick of having to carry lots of different pairs around with them, then the Eyejusters adjstable reading glasses may be the perfect practical and stylish gift idea.

The glasses, which come in a range of frame colours, have hidden dials which can be adjusted to the correct strength for the reader, and adjusted according to if they are reading a book or something from a distance. The beauty is that because they are adjustable, you don’t actually need to know the prescription strength in order to buy these for a friend or loved one. They also work well if you have eyes that have to different strengths. Prices start from £49.

Cienna Rose Vegan Friendly Nail Lacquers

I have reviewed Cienna Rose colours before, as I love the shine and texture of these Vegan friendly nail colours that also contain Lemongrass Oil, Pro Vitamin B5, Vitamin E and a 12-free formula.

For Christmas party season it has to be vampish red. Cienna Rose has some great red shades, including the bestsellers ‘Date Night’ and ;Stilleto’. I think these are a wonderful stocking filler for a glam girl, with the prettiest bottles and those glorious colours.

They cost less than £10 and will certainly delight those who love great nail formulations.
