I can’t believe it’s the first of December already, November seriously flew by and it’s only 24 days until Christmas. From now until Christmas Eve, there’s going to be a lot of beauty festive offerings so I thought I’d start December with a festive fashion gift guide with items which would make for perfect gifts if you’d rather choose a fashion gift rather than a beauty gift. Sometimes fashion gifting can be a little intimidating if you don’t know the recipient’s size but the items I’ve chosen aren’t all necessarily size dependant so hopefully there’s something you like.
1 – I love dressing gowns and I love gifting them as presents as who doesn’t love a dressing gown?! Especially in the winter when it’s absolutely freezing like it is right now here in the UK. This Bunny Dressing Gown from Next instantly caught my eye and it’s actually on my Christmas list as it’s so flipping cute. It has little bunnies all over it with tiny little pom tails, and it’s navy too which is my favourite colour for dressing gowns.
2 – Seeing as New Year’s Eve is one week from Christmas Eve, party dresses are always a good option if you know the dress size and this beautiful sequin mini dress is the prettiest I’ve seen and I really like that it has sleeves. So many dresses have no sleeves but I prefer my dresses to have sleeves, especially when it’s freezing cold. Considering how much embellishment is on this dress, I can’t believe it’s £44.99. It has such amazing attention to detail and I can’t think of a better party dress.
3 – My next option is a little pricier but it’s a beauty. It’s the Rosefield The Mercer Watch which has a rose gold mesh strap and a black dial, and I really like how simplistic the design is. There are so many blingy watch designs out there but I much prefer a more simple design like this one. Plus the watch face is completely flat so it fits almost flush again the skin so you’re less likely to catch it on everything which in my opinion is a massive bonus. I so want one of the Rosefield watches as they really are beautiful.
4 – I chose a scarf for my fourth choice as it’s such a safe gift idea as everyone needs scarves and this particular scarf doesn’t have a busy pattern, instead it’s a pretty dusty pink colour which happens to my current favourite colour, and it has little pearls sewn onto it which are grey and dusty pink coloured. It’s such a gorgeous scarf with a subtle striped design, and it looks like it’s super soft too plus it’s only £12.99 which I think is a great price for an embellished scarf.
5 – What is Christmas without some festive socks?! These gingerbread socks are only £4 from Oasis but pretty much everywhere has festive socks right now, and they’re a good option if you don’t know someone’s size as they’re typically a one size fits all kind of item.
6 – Not everyone’s going to like this, but I really do.. it’s the Biba Pouchette in this peacock like colour design which is really quite bold but I bet it’d look amazing with an all black outfit. They do have some plainer designs to choose from but the metallic colours really appealed to me and I like the tassel detail on the zip.
7 – Then we have the first of two Christmas jumpers I have chosen within my Festive Fashion Gift Guide, the first being from George. It doesn’t look like it’d be from a supermarket fashion label and it’s only £16, but I just love the baby blue, eyelash effect jumper and the silver sequin snowflake is just so pretty. I’m not a fan of the super cringey, loud in your face Christmas jumpers so this is exactly the kind of jumper I’d choose as it’s more wintery than Christmas but I do have a slightly louder option next..
8 – As I said I’m not one for the garish Christmas jumpers, but this Everyday I’m Sleighing It jumper from Primark is kinda cute for £10. I really wish Primark had a website which you could buy from as you never know which stores are going to have which stock but if you’re on the hunt for a Christmas jumper, Primark is always a safe bet as they do subtle all the way to 3d carrots, flashing lights and even bells if you want them.
9 – I featured one of the Warehouse Pom Hats in my fashion wishlist and I am still loving them, even more so now they’re in the sale for only £12. This navy one needs to be mine as I love navy, and I’m happy that it’s definitely faux fur with a nice ribbed knit design.
10 – My last choice is pyjamas as it’s another safe option for a Christmas gift list, and these floral satin pyjamas from Dorothy Perkins are so pretty. I think I have serious obsession with navy looking at all of these, but I just love the navy background with pink almost cherry blossom flowers.
So they are all of the items for my festive fashion gift guide. I could easily have chosen 50+ items as there are so many amazing items right now. I’d love to know which is your favourite item?
