Christmas gift guide – the secret shops you need to investigate!

It’s arrived – it’s officially here, and if you’re anything like me you’ll be dreading squeezing in time to rush around the shops to get presents for people who are ridiculously hard to buy for! Oh Christmas – how we bloody well love you!

Anyway – to try and ease your pain and dread, I’ve put together a gift guide – complete with the best shops you’ve never heard of to give you a not so premature head start… here goes, in no particular order:

  • Nobody’s Child – perfect for girlfriends, sisters and daughters, Nobody’s Child offers amazing value for money and really nice high street styles – literally obsessed!


  • Howkapow – great for fun and quirky homeware, this is ideal for students, young couples and people who enjoy a little colour pop in their home, it’s also really affordable:
  • Truva – say hello to a curation of online boutiques online. This site is a hub for independent businesses selling seriously cute bits and bobs!


  • Lux Linen – the scarves and throws these guys offer are such good quality, packaged beautifully and offering amazing value for money – these are a great present for someone special – Aunty, Mum, Sister you name it. They sent me a gorgeous (and very toasty) scarf to review and I’m 100% addicted. They also offer cushions, towels and blankets too! Check them out here:


  • Hare & Wilde – I came across these guys at the Living North Christmas event at York Racecourse and found their products gorgeous. Basically you’ll find cracking gifts for anyone that owns a home on this site!


  • Anthropologie is literally the cutest online store ever – this place is the dream! Just visit, you’ll get it and probs most of your present here too! Although the clothes are a little pricey!


  • Fodder – for all you foodies, or friends of foodies, Fodder is a great shout for Christmas hampers… you can order online and there’s plenty of variety too:


  • Future And Found – stationary geeks, stop, look and listen. This site is for you!
