All She Wants For Christmas (It’s Not You)

8 Dec

I’m not saying that I’m an expert, but I am saying that I’ve been shopping enough times and looked in enough magazines to know what girls want. And I am one.

Here’s a list of beautiful little things to buy for your girlfriend/’friend’/mother (don’t get her the lingerie though…)

xmas for her

1) IT, by Alexa Chung. Girls love Alexa Chung. She’s transcendent of style/beauty/rock star dating. This coffee table book contains lists, pictures, musings and memories from the world’s number one IT girl. It’s also in the colour of the season: powder pink. £17, all good book stores.

2) Biscuits Cushions. They’re biscuits, but they’re also cushions. A jammy dodger and a party ring to choose from, I just don’t know who wouldn’t want one of these, quite frankly. £22 each,

3) Statement t-shirt. They’re still insouciant, they’re still awesome and they’re still worn by all the big bloggers. £21,

4) Tartan scarf/throw. Tartan is going to be big until it starts to warm up, so if you’re in the North like me, then that’ll be like, April. Go to Zara-Women-Accessories-Scarves to find a tonne of other perfect scarves. Zara, £18.

5) Lingerie. Obviously. Make sure you check her size on the sly, but in a non-sex-pest-manner please. This set is L’Agent, which is an affordable version of the world’s sexiest lingerie brand: Agent Provocateur. Available online and in Selfridges, Harvey Nichols and Debenhams. L’Agent, bra £61 and panties £30.

6) Lipstick, by Giorgio Armani. The brand’s first ‘CC’ lipstick. All that means is that it’s bright vibrant colour as well as lip care. I can’t go without these in the winter or my lips crack. They’re just amazing. Giorgio Armani Rouge Ecstasy, £21.

7) ‘Roses’ Candle, by Diptyque. Candles are interior design porn. Fact. Diptyque are the best because not only do they smell heavenly, but their amazing jars can be re-used when the wax eventually burns down *sob*. Find them in the makeup basement at Selfridges and online. Diptyque, £40.

8) Feather Skull Bangle, by Daisy Knights. Out of all the jewelery out there, Daisy Knights is probably the best without having to take a mortgage out. All her stuff is available on too. Gold bangle, £215.

9) ‘Si’, by Giorgio Armani. This is, without quabble, the best perfume of the winter. Eau de Parfum, £45 for 30ml.

10) Leather and Feather sandals, by Topshop. They’re as covetable as they are impractical. Most girls would die for these. Topshop, £85.

11) Snapshot, by The Strypes. They’re seriously, seriously great, toured with the Arctic Monkeys this year and their album is dripping with rock ‘n’ roll sexiness. Odds are, they’re younger than you too being between sixteen and eighteen (scary.) Snapshot, £9.99.
