Giftmas Gift Guides 2018: Day 1, Your Bestie

(Pop & Suki Make Up Case, Parcel London Box, Milk Tooth Earrings, Chantecaille Compact, Oliver Bonas Dish, Anthropologie Hair Clips, Love Stories Fragrance, Red Magazine Subscription, Mikeala Lyons x Alice Catherine Jewellery)

AH! After hitting the ‘one-month-’til-Christmas’ mark yesterday I was feeling pretty keen to tie up the loose bows on these guides and get them up before December rolled around…

Although I normally share these during the first week of advent, a few of you mentioned starting things a little earlier this year- so I thought I’d dust them off before you start tucking into Day 1 of your daily chocolate diets. Anyway- this year I’ve worked on 7 guides instead of my usual 12, but will have one every day this week going up, hopefully pointing you in the direction of some inspiration for those you love, and those you find perhaps a little tricky to cater for too.

And today I’m starting with one of my favourites- your bestie! I’ve tried to include a bit of a broad selection here- with everything from the treasured (the Alice Catherine and Mikaela Lyons collection is one of my absolute favourites, as well as these galactic earrings from Milk Tooth– not biased at all), to the ‘ooh I wouldn’t buy that for myself!’ things like the Red magazine subscription (which I actually got for my birthday last year, and remains one of my favourite ever gifts). I also included this Parcel London box– which gives you the opportunity to put together some completely personalised and special gifts for someone lovely (not just your bestie) with a range of budgets too- from something more indulgent, to a little love letter. There’s also one of my favourite fragrances from Love Stories, and some trinkets which always set my heart aflutter from Anthropologie and Oliver Bonas too. I also included this travel case from Pop & Suki– which although is one of their spendier pieces, also have some gorgeous pieces for smaller budgets, as well as this heavenly compact from Chantecaille which I know I wouldn’t be mad about seeing under the tree.

Anyway! As per, I hope these guides help you on your way with your shopping this year- sometimes I feel like working on these gift guides is subliminally just me writing down everything I’d quite like for myself for Christmas. After browsing for the additional ideas above, I ended up placing a couple of ~cough~ accidental ~cough~ orders and perhaps adding a couple more to my Christmas list too. I’ll also link last years guide here too (and the one before here)- incase you’d like some other ideas which still apply (even if they aren’t in stock)…

Some more suggestions for your forever friend!

Come back tomorrow for day 2 of Giftmas!

    A magazine subscription is such a good and different idea! My bezzies and I agreed to just going out for a nice meal and spending some time together this year. xx
