I’ve been having such a blast compiling these little xmas lists, I’m secretly hoping the day never comes so I can keep making them. Nothing more fun than browsing the web, picking out ALL the stuff you like and not having to pay a thing. I always do it with a very specific person in mind too (and no, it’s not myself as my entire family seems to think. Although I wouldn’t mind anything I put on here…!), which makes it even more fun.
Today’s gift list is for your little sister or niece or daughter (you know, tweenagers/teenagers). Happy shopping! xxx
1: URBAN RENEWAL WILDLIFE SWEATSHIRT, £28 from Urban Outfitters This cotton sweatshirt from the Urban Renewal range at UO is fun because despite its small price, it’s usually a unique item. An Urban Renewal item is often vintage, recycled, or remade. The wolf print is quirky and a little christmassy… just a little.
2: BLINGDEENIE YELLOW CANDY POM POM BANGLE, £26 from Kabiri Getting jewellery is always fun and shouldn’t just be limited to your wife or girlfriend. Rather than heading to the high street, you can support a young designer with a truly original item like this bright bracelet by London designer BlingDeenie. Do check out her other stuff, it’s really fun!
3: TOPSHOP NAILPOLISH GIFT SET, £15 Whether you’re a young girl or a grown up, every woman loves playing around with make up and nail polish, so the arrival of Topshop Make Up earlier this year was a godsend for both fashionista’s and teens alike. The colours reflect all the latest make up trends and the packaging is just really adorable. This giftset is just one of many different combinations you’ll find in store.
4: MARC BY MARC MOUSE PUMPS, £280 exclusively at Selfridges, These Marc Jacobs mouse pumps are just too cute for words. Similar models have been a classic for years, but this ponyskin animal print version is an exclusive edition for Selfridges. Adorable!!!!
5: CAMBRIDGE 13″ SATCHEL, £88 I wrote about these Cambridge Satchels once before, as a nice cheap alternative to the Proenza Schouler PS1 bag. They come in several colours, suit as a handbag as well as a school/workbag, for men and women, in other words: the ideal bag.
6: LIBERTY OF LONDON WELLINGTON BOOTS, £59 A welly with a Liberty twist. Whether it’s for braving the snowy weather now or muddy festivals in summer, it can’t hurt doing it in style.
7: CATH KIDSTON ROBERTS DAB RADIO, £200 I own one of these (not in a snazzy Cath Kidston print, sadly) and it is always playing in my house. The quality of the sound is amazing, the tuning very easy because it’s a modern DAB radio, but it looks soooooo retro! This Cath Kidston edition gives it even more of a vintage feel, even a bit of a Christmassy vibe, I simply love it.
8: LITTLE FILLE COCO HAIRBAND, £31 I recently stumbled upon the website of Little Fille through a post of fellow blogger Mademoiselle Robot. These are gorgeous little hairbands with a twist, as they can be worn in two different ways. There’s the rope bit, seen here, and the bow on the other side. Everything is made by hand and thus unique.
9: ASOS FURRY BEAR EARS BEANIE, £10 Because it’s cute. Nothing more to add.
