Christmas Shopping 2014!

It's mid-December and the big day is just a week away - exciting times! If you're super organised, you'll have smugly finished your present shopping weeks ago. If you're not and are still to tick everyone off your lists, there's still time! Here's a bit of Christmas gift inspo if you're still buying or if you're all done some things to add to your things to buy with your Christmas money.

When the weather is this chilly, some lux knitwear is always appreciated. Donna Wilson has super soft hats, scarves and gloves in sweet designs, all knitted in Scotland using the softest lambswool. Her gorgeous gloves would bring warmth & joy to the darkest days, with the prettiest flower and circus designs. She's also made a range of children's clothes for John Lewis which are perfect for the little ones in your life - as long as you can live with the strange feeling of envying the wardrobes of the under-tens.

Hotel Chocolat always have gorgeous gifts ready to give, from their chocolate wreaths to the cute Christmas jumper slabs. But I especially love the dinky Christmas stocking, filled with adorable penguin and reindeer chocolates, at a bargain-tastic (and Secret Santa friendly) £10.

There's a huge variety of cool stuff from Pedlar's that's perfectly present-worthy but this cosy blanket would be top of my list. A warm grey fleece with brightly coloured stripes, it's absolutely gorgeous and their number one best seller for a good reason.

Hannah Zakari is a favourite place to browse for gifts for girlfriends and it's actually harder to narrow down potential gifts for girlfriends from their beautiful jewellery. Two stone-cold winners would have to be this super fun origami unicorn brooch or, if you've got the cash to splash or your BFF has donated a kidney to you or something, this cherry crush necklace would be a stunning gift.

Book binding specialists Owl & Lion on West Port is a haven for notebook fiends. Their notebooks come hardbound with the finest quality paper and their own screen printed decorative covers, including beautiful swirled seashell designs and Scando-inspired flower prints.
