This is maybe the most self indulgent post i’ve ever written, except maybe my last Christmas wishlist, but i’ve got so many gift guides for other people going up on the blog this week I feel like being a little selfish. So if we’re related, or you love me, or you’ve drawn me in a secret santa… this is for you.
Would you look at that, a millennial cliche! I love statement wall calendars, pretty postcards and gin. Seriously though, everything tastes better from a Cath Kidston Stanley mug and those Pantone postcards will not only liven up my decor but they’ll take my flatlay game to the next level.
Last year for Christmas Matt got me a bullet journal and a whole host of lovely pens to go with it. It’s still in the packaging. I really really meant to use it this year, I honestly did. The first thing that stopped me was time, I had no time to set it up and get my spreads ready. I also had planner fear, didn’t want to ‘wreck’ my bullet journal by making a mess of it. And yes, I do know how silly that sounds. So this year, I’m wishing for a calligraphy book and I AM going to use some of my free time to relax and enjoy the process of plotting out my weekly spreads. Bring on the zen.
All of the gifts above are super and if I get even one I’ll be chuffed to bits. But if you wanted to go the extra mile for me, or indeed any other 20 something in your life, why not make it a bit more personal? One of my favourite places to shop for loved one is Not On The Highstreet. Firstly, they have 1001 things you haven’t even thought of and secondly, most of them can be personalised in some way. I think it adds such a special touch and really makes someone feel that you really considered them.
As you can see you can really customise anything from prints to shopper bags, jewellery and passport covers. I actually have the bracelet pictured and it’s beautiful. If you’re tempted to get something extra special make sure to use my not on the highstreet promo code.
Speaking of discounts… I also have a link to a discount voucher for Groupon – one of my tried and true places to give and receive gifts from. One thing you can never have enough of is quality time with friends and family, that’s why I love to give and receive vouchers for experiences. Whether it’s a meal out, a spa day or getaway a voucher to use in your own time is one of the best things that can fall out of a Christmas card. No more January blues when you’ve got an afternoon tea to look forward to!
So if you’re here because you’re shopping for me, or someone like me, I hope this was helpful. What are you hoping Santa brings this year?
