For day 5 of Giftmas, it’s all about spoiling your bestie…

Honestly- I always love putting this category together. Although it feels a bit open ended and broad (because as I said last year- your best pal could be into absolutely anything, and nobody knows them quite as well as you do); really this is just a collection of gorgeous items I know I would love (and a lot of my best pals would too). So don’t mind me as I fawn over these gorgeous jim jams and underwear…

But let’s start at the top! One of my favourite travel brands, Kip Hideaways, have partnered with Elizabeth Scarlett and Bramley to bring out the most gorgeous sleep set. Perfect for any pals partial to a staycation; this set comes with an annual Kip membership, sleep spray, eye mask and pouch and is the most thoughtful gift for anyone into holidaying at home too. For further pampering, these Wiggle by Wendy PJs might be some of the coolest jammies I’ve spotted lately; Wendy has such an eye and they’re almost too good to keep for bed only. Which leads me nicely on to this Dora Larsen bra! I know buying undies at Christmas can sometimes be a little bit Buddy the Elf-esque; but seeing as a nice set of underwear is often one of those things we never get round to picking up for ourselves, I know opening something as beautiful as this would certainly not go amiss…

And onto accessories! I completely fell in love with the Liberty and Lele Sadoughi collaboration; the headbands are true things of beauty and combined with the prettiest Liberty fabric, they’re a total dream. I also did a bit of ~shameless self promo~ and included my Gemma necklace from my Oliver Bonas collaboration. It feels a bit funny including something I’ve designed (I know it’s not stopped me in the past)- but these pieces are items I wear everyday and truly cherish, and like to think if you were looking for a true keepsake and something really special, the collection might have a couple of pieces in there that you might take a little shine to.

And last but not least! This Lucy Says I Do book journal. I absolutely love this as an idea for any friends that love getting through their reading pile at super speed. It has so many sections for taking notes on beautiful quotes, meaningful passages or just lovely bits of text you want to remember; and I think jotting them down somewhere like this is a really gorgeous idea.

And for some other gorgeous suggestions for you, I mean, your bestie…

  • Wardrobe wonders: Got a pal who is a bit of a style maven but you’re never sure what their wardrobe is missing? Gift them with a fashion rental service subscription for a month; On Loan and By Rotation are absolutely cracking (with the best selection) and will fulfill any wardrobe dilemmas at a moments notice. Alternatively Tatiana Alida has done a series of iconic Christmas jumpers for Warehouse which are pretty dreamy too. For vintage, Margot and Lux have a gorgeous selection- but you can find my full list of favourites here too. I also love these laser cut earrings from Han Makes which are gorgeously affordable.
  • Under One Roof: For some of the chicest pieces all in one place I love a good old browse of Ninety Three Store for unique fashion, fragrance and lifestyle. Glassette for the finest in home ware, and A Slower Space for everything from lifestyle loveliness to The Beatles (which is always a good combination if you ask me).
  • A bit of a dog lover? Scouts Honour do the best patches for your pals pooches, as well as Bryony Moss for prints and Polly Fern and her incredible whippet designs.
  • Prints, prints, prints! I honestly saw this When Harry Met Sally print from Emma and LEAPT. It is everything everyone should have on their walls for all-year-round-autumnal-goodness. I also love Ohverlee for serious pick-me-up prints (and the kind of things you know your bestie will appreciate hearing daily). I also love Allie Josie Studio for her punch needle initial wall hangings which would cheer up any space.
  • Women In Mind: A new discovery to me, but one I’m so glad to have stumbled across, Women in Mind do the most beautiful fragrances, home wear and lifestyle products all centring around ‘helping to protect what should be private spaces in which to pause, reflect and replenish. We do this by creating and fragrances that instil an understanding of what self-care is: not a frivolity, but a vital means of preserving ourselves in the face of a demanding lifestyle.’ London Fields is top of my list and I know Harem Rose will be beautiful too.
  • Brixton Wine Club: Cocktails and wine in cans delivered to them monthly? Wine tasting has never looked so cosy.
  • The ultimate cosy knit: Is there anything more glorious than unwrapping a cosy jumper and putting it straight on? No, there is not! Yan Tan do the most beautiful sustainable knitwear, and their Aran and cable knits are HEAVEN.
  • Romeo and Jules: For the swankiest notecards and writing sets, Romeo and Jules will have you covered. It’s the fanciest kind of gift, but one which feels oh so special, and you’ll be hard pushed to find prettier stationery than this.

I’ve also added previous links to guides for your pal below, if you need any further reading (as well as some extra picks too)!
