Panic Buy???

Hey fashionistas, how are your festive preparations coming along?

I have spent the past week dashing through the shops on a mission to buy presents, decorations, tableware, crackers and a rude gift amounting to no more than £2.50 (don’t you just love secret santa)

Is it complete? Am I settled in front of an open fire sipping baileys, eating yule log and watching Richard Curtis movies? NOT!

I fear the trouble with shopping is that it is just too distracting. How can I possibly find presents for people when the shoe section is enticing me, as are the pre-Christmas discounts in most stores. Then there is coffee, lunch, a make-up trial at MAC and a neck massage – yes really, on the ground floor.

So, it is with the afore mentioned Baileys and open fire that I write this blog entry and purchase afore mentioned non-purchased Christmas presents online. Along with a number of others apparently, as forecasts* predict that December’s online sales will amount to 5 billion pounds.

So far,  I have ordered for the husband, mother-in-law, kid, brother and next door neighbour but one. All will be gift wrapped and delivered no later than Wednesday at 4.41pm –  and not one impulse purchase has been made for yours truly.

Here is my pick of the best online, fashion minded Christmas gifts, for him, her, them and us!
