All I Want for Christmas...

It's December now, which means we can officially be festive! All around London there have been preparations for weeks, adorning streets with the prettiest lights and decorations and shops have been pumping festive tunes out of their speakers for a couple weeks now, whilst shoppers begin (or complete, if you're a smug early bird) their Christmas shopping.

Thought I'd kick off the festive-ness with a gift guide of sorts - it's basically my edit of £50 and under gifts, or stocking fillers if you're a moneybags. Either way, every single thing on my little list is either something I already have and love, or have been yearning after for some time now. Needless to say, if any of my friends and family are reading this, then I would love to see some of these under my tree... 


JL Cashmere Bobble Beanie Hat, £45, John Lewis | After years of frittering away hard earned cash on man-made fibres, like acrylic, this winter I treated myself to this ultra soft cashmere beanie, complete with cute bobble. It keeps me so warm and cosy! Available in a few neutral colourways, this would be a lovely gift to give!

Fir Tree Candle, £25, The White Company | The smell of fresh, real Christmas trees, captured in a candle, what more do you need this Christmas?! This delicious, limited edition candle will fill your home with the fresh, woody notes of pine, eucalyptus, cedar and moss, and is firmly near the top of my Christmas list! (15% discount with code FRUGALITY15)

Balance Me Hyaluronic Plumping Mist, £12, John Lewis | I love a face mist, and recently purchased this one. It's packed full of natural ingredients like chamomile to soothe, but a good dose of (my favorite ingredient) hyaluronic acid, keeps skin hydrated - handy with the mix of central heating and changing weather conditions our complexions have to endure. 

Leather Passport Holder, £29, & Other Stories | This Parisian designed, seriously chic passport case in burgundy, instantly conjures up vintage travel adventures. Just imagine the gift of memories you will help create with this magical passport case!

Abstract Pendant Earrings, £17, COS | Let's take a break from tassels and admire these brass beauties, I certainly have been! They are ultra pared back and simple, yet impactful all at the same time. Perfect when paired with a black polo neck, or anything! 

Beaded Crossbody Bag, £19.99, Zara | There's something about this little black beaded bag - it's sleek and embellished so works perfectly as an evening bag  (especially for the festive season), but would work equally as well as a crossbody for daytime essentials too - double whammy!

Studded Waist Belt, £45, & Other Stories | Add some definition to the waist, with this chic studded leather belt. It's an outfit transformer and can be worn cinched over coats, knits and dresses to create some shape.

Leather Card Holder, £35, & Other Stories | I recently downsized my huge wallet to a small cardholder, and this one is my favourite. In mock-croc gold leather, with concertina style pockets - it's small but mighty and holds a lot! It's really chic and doesn't weigh me down! I would love to receive this as a gift!

Cashmere Scarf, £59, COS | Another of life's little luxuries, quit the acrylic and help keep someone you love's neck ultra warm and toasty with this powder pink cashmere scarf. It's really well priced, and comes in other hues if pink ain't your thang... 

Scallop Leather Gloves, £17.99, Reserved | These beautiful scallop edge gloves are premium quality leather by Polish brand Reserved, who have just launched in the UK. These beautifully detailed gloves would be both a practical and chic present to give (and receive!)
