Christmas present ideas …

pile of presents

I’m normally pretty organised with present buying but this year I’m a little less.  So whilst browsing online for ideas I’ve come across some lovely items I’d like to share with you.

I’ve just recently read an article in a local magazine about a designer, Ashley Thomas, she has her own studio but also commissions some designs for Debenhams.  I have instantly fallen in love with her charming, bright, clean designs.  I particularly like the egg cups and breakfast would appear so much more special displayed in one of these beauties …

I loved Maggie Smith and am looking forward to watching her new movie The Lady in the Van, the book that the film has been adapted from looks like a great read …

I saw this book promoted back in the summer and never got round to buying it, I think its a book that everyone needs to read at some point in their lives …

Whilst in Tesco this week I noticed they have a great offer with some of the branded giftcards, 20% off a variety of cards.  Ideal presents for any time of the year.

I hope I’ve given you a little inspiration … I’m now off to try and shorten my Christmas present list.

Try not to stress on present buying at the end of the day time spent with a loved one is more precious than a gift … enjoy!
