Is finding the perfect Christmas gift for all those fashion, fitness and foodie types is just too darn difficult? Fear not fabulous readers, here is a breakdown of the top five gifts for all your favourite personality types.

And, much like the bad tween romance novels that I definitely don’t spend all my weekends reading*, I’m giving it to you in super easy to digest chunks – aka a three part-er.

First up? Some ideas for the fashion fiend among your friends.


1 We all know how freakin’ addicted I am to this kiwi label. With a new Resort collection in store and online now, and an absolutely killer A/W season coming in – any fashion follower would be seriously happy with any number (preferably a very high number) of Ruby pieces.

2 There is something that screams sophistication when one moves on from those flannelette frog print PJs. This silk night shirt (£250, Equipment) is the perfect mix of classic (in a deep navy hue with traditional piping) and sexy (note the oversized shape and mysteriously missing bottom half, referencing the archetypal “I just woke up and threw on my boyfriends shirt” look).

3 I think one of the best gifts you can give, is both something your receiver needs (who doesn’t need a bloody good layer of warmth right about now) and something they want. Steer clear of loud patterns or bright prints, unless you know for sure that it’s their style. Try opting for this marled knit (£148, J.Crew) for a bang on trend winter wardrobe essential

4 Slogans have hop, skipped and jumped away from our T-shirts, and fixed themselves firmly onto clutches – just in time for the party season. Why not let your chic mates in on this fun fashion movement with this nude number (£25, M&S).

5 Bye bye boring black, hello refreshing winter neutrals. Going for key cold weather pieces (like these Rupert Sanderson boots), but take a step away from safe options and go for light shade like nudes or whites.

*Okay, okay. Occasionally I indulge in a Saturday filled with my good friends Katniss Everdeen and Edward Cullen. Usually wearing my flannelette froggy pyjamas.
