Here we are again then! The twinkly lights are flickering faster than false eyelashes at the works Christmas do, the Christmas emails are flooding in thick and fast and the supermarket aisles are stacked high with plastic tubs full of shiny wrapped chocolates (oh how I mourn the disappearance of a proper tin)…
Ah yes, ’tis the season!
Easily the fastest moving months of the year, it seems that before you’ve even had a chance to let bonfire night’s sparkler fizzle out, we are already well into the whirlwind that is December. Waist deep in mince pies, festive gatherings and of course – Christmas shopping.
I definitely admire the early Christmas shoppers – the ones who you bump into in town the week before Christmas. Whilst you are frantically tearing round looking for the perfect pair of gloves, or a bottle of gin that you’ve never bought before, they are the ones casually strolling down to the pub for a glass of mulled wine and a cranberry topped pork pie because they ‘finished all their Christmas shopping weeks ago and just like to relax and enjoy December’. If like me, you haven’t even so much as written out a list of names yet then perhaps you could do with a bit of inspiration…
So, for those who know someone that needs a bit of Katie Alice in their lives, here is our 2017 Christmas gift guide. And a lovely handpicked list of my favourite pieces it is too, stocking fillers and all. From glassware, novelty salt and pepper shakers and my favourite mugs to our brand new e-gift vouchers for the hard to please!
I wish you all happy shopping, unless of course you’ve already finished in which case I wish you a merry December!
