November is a great time to start thinking about Christmas gifts. Buying presents will put you in the festive mood and make you feel like December has already started.
Nice woolly jumper is one of the nicest Christmas presents you can think of. Since this winter is all about printed jumpers, you can choose anything from Phillip Lim’s pop art style ‘Boom’ jumper from his collection for Target to Stella McCartney’s Christmas jumper, as long as it is quirky and cheerful. Alternatively, you can just pick a nice scarf or a cute beanie hat.
Perfume is also a great present you can never go wrong with. If you are not going for a timeless classic like Chanel No.5, which is very Christmassy anyway, you can buy one of the newer fragrances in a limited edition packaging such as Marni Metallic Eau de Parfum. The bottle is gold with hand painted polka dots, and it looks very festive.
Christmas cracker filled with beauty products such as the one from Jo Malone is a very original idea, but you can also choose a nicely packaged makeup set like the one from Benefit.
If you are looking for a stylish present for a stylish person, but you are not sure of their taste, fashion book is a brilliant idea. There are many new books published this fall including Alexa Chung’s ‘It’ and Giambattista Valli’s monograph. Alternatively, you can buy a Moleskine notebook which is one of the most stylish presents in the world.
Even though there are plenty of beautiful and expensive gifts for you to choose from, there is nothing better than a great cheap jokey presents like Cars survival kit from John Lewis, and you can always just buy a great chocolate of a phone case.
