Oh the weather outside is frightful but the fire is so delightful… Is it me or are things starting to feel seriously festive? Sadies little snowsuit is in rotation, I’ve eaten my first mince pie of the year, candles are constantly burning at Cagney and Lace HQ (shout out to Diptyques Insolite) and the advent calendars are ready to be opened. Christmas is definitely on its way and I couldn’t be more excited – Sadies arrival means Christmas this year will be beyond special and I can’t wait to honour old traditions and start our own family ones too. Talking of things we do every December say hello to my Christmas wish list, just a few (ahem) items I’d be thrilled to find under the tree this year.
I always find luxe versions of everyday items are an excellent place to start when it comes to festive gifting so I personally don’t think you can go wrong with curl-up-in-me cashmere, beautifully soft knitwear or I-wouldn’t-normally-buy beauty items (oh hi Jo Malone Christmas cracker and anything Charlotte rose gold Tilbury). Smith & Cult nail polishes have been all over the bloggersphere and I’ve wanted to be the proud owner of a Tom Ford lipstick for longer than I can remember. Right now my limbs are drier than the Sahara so the Origins ginger body set would go down a treat, are you listening Father Christmas? Aesthetically pleasing homewares are always a good shout for homebods and I’d be over the moon with anything from swoon worthy Kate Spade or the equally as awesome Oliver Bonas.
Christmas is not only the time for getting together with loved ones and enjoying all of the food (pigs. in. blankets. Need I say anymore?) but it’s the perfect opportunity to covet those if only items. Step forward the Olympus Pen, Alex Monroe rose gold charm bracelet and the worlds comfiest ankle boots by Sam Edelman.
What are you hoping to find in your stocking this Christmas?
