Stuck what to get your loved ones this Christmas? Don’t worry, you’re not alone.
Shopping at this time of year is stressful enough when you’re on the hunt for a specific present that will make someone’s Christmas special, but what about when you have absolutely no clue where to start? Mum’s, Dad’s, Girlfriends, Boyfriends, Fashion lovers and Sports fanatics; this year we’ve got it covered.
You might be struggling for a gift for your own mum or perhaps your Mother-In-Law but there are a few safe options which, if you choose carefully,are guaranteed go down a storm! Luxury fragrances, household items, cooking utensils, beauty products and snuggly pyjamas are all great places to start but if you really want to impress choose a pair of sunglasses specially suited to your mum and she’ll appreciate the thought. These Prada Baroque glasses are an unusual but ultra-chic choice…
Dad’s are notoriously the most difficult to buy for at Christmas time yet strangely easily pleased by the most bizarre things. Maybe skip the socks, whisky and toffee’s this year and get your dad a little slice of luxury. Foodie dads and gadget lovers will always thank you for the latest fad gifts whilst a quality bottle of Aftershave or a manly essentials kit should do the trick for dad’s who don’t often treat themselves. A designer jumper or wallet will also come in handy as an extra special Christmas present whilst a classic pair of sunglasses can’t go amiss. Make sure dad stays ahead of the Spring/Summer season with a pair of Tom Ford Charles Aviators..
Shower the important ladies in your life this year with useful wardrobe staples and luxurious beauty essentials. Sparkles, fur and glitter never go amiss during the festive period and the hottest shades this season are pastels. Inject a little shimmer and wintery glamour into their lives with a metallic make-up palette, cosy accessories and some relaxing bath-time goodies. If you really want to treat someone this year, these stunning D&G Two Tone Cateyes add a touch of retro chic to any wardrobe…
Stuck what to get the man in your life? Whether that be your significant other, your son or your brother (excuse the rhymes…), a pair of shades will never fail to come in useful for next year’s summer trip or music festival jaunt.
