From The Archive: 2011

From starting university, to making the decision to leave (and winning my first blog award) - the year of 2011 was a big one for me- and I finally moved back to London to intern and dedicate a little more time to the blog...


The What Olivia Did Gift Guide Post!

Gift Guide #1: The boy that has everything (yes, even socks):
I’m a sucker for a novelty gift, but each year I seem to struggle for an imaginative gift for a all the men in my life. With socks, mugs and chocolates becoming the ‘go to’ striving for something interesting and unique can become quite the challenge. So if you’re having trouble thinking of what to get a guy for Christmas, you’d be surprised how entertaining a weird gadget can actually be, and you can almost guarantee they won’t already have it. These gifts work well alone or as and ‘add on’ to a t-shirt/gig ticket/teamed together if you want something a little extra. Additionally, according to my dad, ‘blokes just love magnets’, so I’ve thrown one of them in for good measure.
Gift Guide #2: The lovely ladies you just can’t buy for:

It’s undeniable, women are the hardest types of people to buy for. Okay, well, men are tough. But ladies are far harder to please in my opinion. Most know exactly what they like, and on occasion the risk of buying them something without a gift receipt is just one not worth taking. I’m compiled my favourite (pretty much) all under Β£20 gift buys for the ladies in your life, that you either don’t know entirely well or those who are particularly testing in the ‘ol gift department.

(1: Book, 2: Lush Goodies, 3: Manicure Gift Set, 4: Diary, 5: Mug (too cute to resist!), 6: Liz Earle Gift Set, 7: White Company Candle, 8: Notebook)

I hope you find these partially inspiring for getting some gifts this year, let me know if there’s any other people you’d like guides for! Happy shopping!
