Happy Monday everyone! Another weekend has passed and I feel like I STILL haven’t properly started my Christmas shopping. How does it always creep up so fast!? This year though, I feel like I definitely have a different outlook on present shopping. Before, I was always one to buy friends and family lots of small bits & pieces (which they probably don’t even have anymore) but after the past year in New York, I’ve really come to appreciate the idea of quality over quantity. In all aspects of life really and now especially when it comes to giving gifts. Yes, it’s nice to have a big amount of parcels to open, but it’s even nicer to receive something you know you’ll have forever. I absolutely love giving gifts – there really is no better feeling than seeing someone light up with happiness and if you’re gifting something that you know they’ll have for years to come (and hopefully will always remind them of you) it makes it it a million times better. So if you feel like REALLY treating someone (or of course, yourself) here are some gift ideas:
This year, I finally invested in my first high-end bag (the Chloe Elle) and it’s still to this date my favourite thing I own. The latest wish list addition I am (literally) dreaming about is the Givenchy Antigona which honestly is just absolute perfection. Other brands which also have some great options are Kate Spade & Ted Baker and some of my favorite sites to buy more expensive bags from are Monnier Freres, Nordstrom, MatchesFashion.
Last week’s sunglasses post emphasized my love for this accessory and they’re honestly the best gift. I purchased my first pair of Celine’s this year (the Caty Style) and I genuinely think they’re the most worn item in my wardrobe. I currently have my eye on a similar Victoria Beckham style and of course, you can never go wrong with Ray Ban’s.
…and finally, some watch ideas. I absolutely LOVE watches and usually alternate between my black Daniel Wellington (so popular now) & my Gold Nixon. There are some amazing options available at the moment! I especially love this gold Marc by Marc Jacobs, this monogrammed Kate Spade style and especially this gold Larsson & Jennings watch.
Hope you’ve had a nice start to the week!
