With less than one month until Christmas is upon us, the countdown to gift-giving day daunts even the best of us, resulting in some recipients wondering how such a stylish girl/chap has invested in less-than-desirable purchases (read, last day shopping surrounded by frantic crowds).
In order to avoid such dramas, here’s a compilation of some rather lovely gift ideas, with all budgets in mind, and – being purchased online – for the street-smart, queue-avoidant types.


1. Indulge (by proxy) your inner Boho princess in this empire-cut dress, ALICE by Temperley – £545

2. Perenially glamorous (think 1930s diva), a faux-fur shawl that won’t break the bank, Oliver Bonas – £25

3. Beautiful nails are the gift that keeps on giving. For the best tomato-red, Pop Daddy by Essie – £10.95

4. In stunning gold packaging, enriched with argan oil and vitamin E, and with a ‘oh so creamy’ texture, Albeit lipstick comes in 5 beautiful shades – £14

5. Perfect for cat lovers in (dire!) need of the coat or blazer accessoire du jour, the lenticular rue pin by Marc by Marc Jacobs is the cat’s meow – £50

6. Formulated by famed New York apothecary C.O. Bigelow, you cannot go wrong with a cult classic – £8.50


Happy shopping!
