Ok, so, I have to preface this post by admitting that I had big plans for all different kinds of gift guides this year. But something just felt a bit off…

Firstly, I’ve seen soooo many. Everybody seems to be releasing a gift guide. Which makes sense. It’s a staple in Christmas content and everybody has their own ideas… So I get that. But I just didn’t want to churn out something that you’d already seen a million times, so without any wacky ideas about how to make mine different, I’ve been procrastinating over it, and, as a result, this is going up a lot later than I had planned.

But I have to say, now that I’m done with it, I’m quite pleased with it.

I wanted to make it appealing to look at. I wanted to take pretty photos of the things I could get my hands on. And I wanted to feature things that I would truly love to find in my stocking this Christmas. But at the same time, I knew that if I only included the things I could physically get hold of, I’d be limiting myself and wouldn’t be able to feature all of the wonderful gift ideas I had in mind for you all.

So, pictured here, in this epic flatlay (that took over my entire living room!) we have some of my ultimate faves.

And then below, I have added some extras, which I also thought you might love. With a little ‘for him’ section at the very bottom, for those hard-to-buy-for men in your lives.

And for him…
