My aim was to create a list of suggestions which strayed from the High Street and are (hopefully) more unique or thoughtful than the usual stuff you see in the shops.

Xmas Gift Guide 2015

This is the first instalment of my five part Christmas Gift Guide.  Over the next week I will be covering gift ideas for friends, parents, boyfriends & girlfriends, children & teens and stocking fillers.  My aim was to create a list of suggestions which strayed from the High Street and are (hopefully) more unique or thoughtful than the usual stuff you see in the shops.

As a final note (and disclaimer!) I sourced all gifts and companies personally and reached out to them, no samples or sponsorship passed hands in order to be included.  I feel this is important to add since I’ve seen a number of gift guides this year which feel a little forced and jaded as they’ve clearly influenced by other factors.
