on the fifth day of Christmas my true love gave to me….


This Christmas I am only buying presents from independent designers, one I know first hand a little more love and attention has gone into them and two I’d rather share all the companies I love with my friends rather than getting them something generic from the high street.

Christmas gift guide for all the girls in your life.



Abandon ship apparel west beanie, the mint green colour with the hot pink is perfect for the cold weather
Frenchie portrait, just completely adorable
Lime crime nail varnish, opaque and the colours are based on sweets!
Isolated heroes tartan skirt, did someone say clueless? 



DIY nails christmas decals, these will make any girl happy on Christmas morning
Neil Slorance ‘let’s get lost’ painting, his online shop has a few to choose from including an adorable comic book about being a ghost
Abandon Ship Apparel Cross Body, this also comes in kitten print and fits like a glove
Tatty Bon alice in wonderland necklace, with a pearl chain and sparkly frame this will start their Alice jewellery collection nicely!


Obscure Couture, THIS jumper….that’s all.
Bloody Mary Metal alchemy ring, made from silver and made to measure this will earn you some serious brownie points
Bebaroque jewelled socks, these would make a great addition to a new years outfit
I hope you have some idea’s for gifts now, I unfortunately just want it all for myself!
