2018 Christmas Gift Guide

However much I try to turn a blind eye to it, Christmas is a-coming and I, for one, am really not feeling it yet! However, with the abundance of Christmas emails that are filling my inbox on a minute by minute basis (was GDPR even a thing?!) lovely things for even the trickiest of teens and the awkwardest of aunts have caught my eye! So here’s our 2018 Christmas Gift Guide, which I hope helps with your shopathon.

So many of these tempting treats might be hard to part with but to kick off proceedings, we love this blue leopard print scarf. It’s a great gift for sassy mums, sister-in-laws, in fact it’s perfect for any style loving friend.

£49, Hush

With a one for you, one for me policy, here’s something for your own wish list (well, it’s definitely on mine) This gorgeous over sized grey cashmere crew neck with sequin wings, will, however fraught Christmas morning may be, keep you feeling angelic as your let Granny loose in your kitchen to make the brandy butter.

£175, Arkell & Wills

Now one for the gents, and I mean, take note…this cotton PJ set is to die for after a long day on the yard. Any girl would be super lucky to find this set under the tree and monogramming is also available.

£130, Rae Feather

We first spied these wonderful Horse Head Book Ends, which are perfect for the book worm in your life, when we were on a fact finding mission for cushions after yet another one got shredded by the puppy and they may have made their way back to GPHQ!

£75, Oka

How pretty is this jar of advent biscuits? They are the perfect family gift as can be enjoyed straight away and don’t need any prepping unlike flowers. Order a few as they make wonderful hostess gifts and can be brought out anytime over the festive period and shared by all.

£40, Honeywell Biscuit Co

5. £40, Honeywell Bakes

Recently we’ve been celebrating the arrival of two special future equestrians and found this divine baby grow, which is also available in pink, and is too gorgeous not to share with you if you are spending Christmas with a wee one this year.

£13.95, The Horse Diva

If you’re looking for a lovely joint pressie for an uncle and aunt, this stunning wooden table centrepiece can be personalised with a special message. Candles not included but we love the colourful selection from True Grace.

£33, Wood Paper Scissors

And whilst we are on the topic of candles, isn’t this the most perfect gift for your best friend or loved one that let’s them know they are always in your thoughts.

£29.99, Love Inc

Got a travelling teen with a Gap Year coming or someone embarking on a new adventure in life? This personalised Spinning Globe necklace from Posh Totty Designs (9) will become a treasured keepsake when on the road and is handmade to order from sterling silver, with optional 9ct gold plating available.

£85, Posh Totty Designs

Who doesn’t love a unicorn? It’s top of my god daughter’s list (again!) but help is at hand with Matalan’s extensive collection, or is that a herd! We love this cute onesie, even if it is 100% polyester, but the cuddles are going to be worth it.

£14.00, Matalan

For the dog lovers in your circle, Celia Haddon’s latest tome is an interesting read packed full of all the things we can learn from our canine companions.

I am lucky to have 4 gorgeous nieces and I think the eldest 3 would all be over the moon with this sparkly lightning bolt clutch from Julien Macdonald for Debenhams. Dress up or down, it’s a winner for the teens in your life.

£24, Debenhams

One for the outdoor enthusiasts, Canon’s latest compact, the Powershot SX740HS, packs a 40x zoom (24-960mm equivalent) and also offers 4K Ultra High Definition video, wifi and bluetooth and has many intuitive automatic settings. We love the silver shown here but it is also available in black.

£337.01, Photospecialist.co.uk

 

As kitchen gadgets go, this is very cool! No more endless pans to cook the weekend fry up, why haven’t we discovered this before? A great gift for dads, brothers and uncles but I’d quite like one too!

£23.99, Vitinni

You may have seen the hype in the press but Lidl’s Hortus Pomegranate and Rose Gin Liqueur really is truly delicious but be quick as it’s bound to be popular! This is a lovely gift for your vet or farrier and is a great price.

Tricky teen or gadget loving hubby proving impossible to buy for? The Jabra Elite Active 65t True Wireless Earbubs have been consistently rated as one of the best wireless earbuds for sports and are bound to get you serious brownie points.
