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!
not on the high street £89
Mr Porter £230 (Marc by Marc Jacobs)
Vertbaudet £35 (for full outfit)
Then of course there is always ClosetBox.co.uk where you can shop for a treat for yourself!
