Shop My Favourites

Hello December!

To mark the first of the festive month, I'm here today with my*bumper* Christmas Gift Guide 2017!

Last year's post took me such a long time, but I had the most lovely comments and feedback on it - so thank you! This year's has taken me even longer, but I wanted to try and get a great mix of less-common picks, some luxury, a lot affordable, for him, for her, for the foodie, for the slow-liver, for yourself? ;)

(I tried to include a mixture of price points in each category, but, as with last year, I've added a Stocking Fillers section towards the end for some smaller items :)

I really hope you find an idea that you've been hunting for!
