Merry Christmas Everyone! How To Nail Your Christmas Shopping

With less than two weeks to go, the Christmas crunch is well and truly on.

But this year there’s no need to go down the soap gift set route, as I’ve hand selected the perfect gifts for all the family. Read on for some seriously simple shopping…

For Mum
Personalised Canvas, £29.99 from Find Me A Gift

Mums love family gifts. Seriously, you could give her a poster of your face and she’d be deeeeelighted. But since that’s kind of a pathetic excuse for a present, this totes emosh and super cute canvas is a better choice. The canvas comes in different colours too, so if you have siblings you could each get one and make a set. That’s all of you sorted!

For Dad
Personalised ‘man cave’ sign, £22,95 from Not On The High Street

Dads have a way of feeling a little overwhelmed in the household. They may say they are the boss, but we all know that’s not true. So why not treat your dad to this quirky little sign, so he can have at least one little space that he can say he is in charge of?

For your sister
Jeffree Star liquid lipstick, £16 from Beauty Bay

So apparently Natural Collection foundation and a sparkly lip gloss tube by 17 doesn’t cut it for teenagers anymore??? Since when was that a thing??? Instead, get your sister a liquid lipstick by Jeffree Star because 1. Jeffree Star is, like, totally YouTube famous, 2. Liquid lipsticks are essential for getting this season’s must have matte lip and 3. It comes in colours you didn’t even know existed.

For your brother
Smartphone projector, £15.99 from I Want One Of Those

Ugh, boys- so hard to buy for! Thankfully, this smartphone projector ticks all the boxes. It has a kind of cool hipsterish vibe, plus it’s a gadget thingy, and boys love gadgets. It’s also not too expensive, so when said brother ends up getting you some £10 bubble bath, you won’t feel bad for splashing out a fortune. Win-win.

For your secret santa
Tiny hands, £9.99 from Find Me A Gift

I’m sorry, but if you don’t find this hilarious then we can’t be friends. Granted, tiny hands are not exactly the most useful of things (just ask Donald Trump heh heh heh) but if you can’t get someone a ridiculous Secret Santa present, what is even the point?

For your gal BFF
‘Gin’ clutch, £49 from SoS15

How amazing is this clutch?! Not only is it perfect for all the night outs you will have together, but this bag is made by fabulous independent designer, Saundra O’Shea. Why spend your money on a bag from River Island that every one is going to have, when you can treat your BFF to this one instead?

For your guy BFF
Absolut miniatures set, £11.89 from Drink Supermarket

Look at these little bottles inside a big bottle! It’s bottle inception! This is the perfect gift for your vodka-drinking partner in crime, and it’s much more interesting than just picking up a regular bottle of something boozy.

For the boyfriend
Monogrammed leather satchel, £75 from Not On The High Street

This is the perfect gift for your man about town. It’s a classic piece that he will keep forever (and hence remember you forever #crazygirlfriendvibes). On a serious note though, this satchel is a real beauty and the monogram makes it seem extra expensive and high quality. Love it!

For the girlfriend
Vivienne Westwood bag, £192 from Very Exclusive

Trust me when I say this- there is a Vivienne Westwood bag for every woman. The styles range from punky, to quirky to classic, plus they are vegan and so iconic. If your girl is giving you no hints whatsoever about what to get her for Christmas, she will not be disappointed by a bag from Dame Viv*

*Disclaimer- I cannot take responsibility if you choose the wrong one. Know your girlfriend better, gawd.
