Here are a few pretty things that I’ve picked out that I really, really want for Christmas. So, Santa, if you’re listening, here’s what’s on my Christmas wishlist this year.
Esska Charlie Anthracite Metallic Leather Heeled Sandals | £155
I’m a bit in love with these shiny, spangly heels with their retro styling and dark pewter colour. They give you just enough extra height, but you can also dance in them, making them perfect for parties or dressing up plainer outfits. FIND AT: Oliver Bonas, or at Esska (£160). There’s also a lighter silver/platinum version with 25% off right now at Anthropologie.
Difford’s Guide to Cocktails Seventeenth Edition by Simon Difford | £36
Simon Difford is a bona fide cocktail expert, and this is the 17th edition of his definitive guide to current cocktails. The book contains over 3,300 drinks recipes, with a picture of each one, plus 350 new recipes and 350 updated ones to reflect changing tastes. Maybe this is the year Santa puts a copy in my stocking? FIND AT: Amazon UK
Xander Kostroma Vintage Floral Tassel Luxe Pashmina in Burgundy/Gold | £25
These big, beautiful scarves have just the right amount of festive sparkle from the interwoven metallic thread, and this is my favourite colourway. There are lots of other lovely designs as well, all with that pretty bohemian feel. Check out Xander’s beautiful crystal jewellery too. FIND AT: Xander Kostroma and Not On The High Street (20% off in promotion)
Urban Apothecary Wick Trimmer and Snuffer Set | £18.75 in offer
You might already know that I’m a huge fan of home fragrance, especially a good scented candle. This candle care set is perfect for keeping the flames slow and low and without smoke, making them burn better and last longer. Great gift for anyone who loves their candles. FIND AT: LookFantastic
Heather Anne Home Fragrance winter collection | from £3.00
And speaking of gorgeous home fragrance, I have been very impressed by the Winter / Christmas home fragrance selection by Heather Anne. Everything I’ve tried was beautiful, including the Nutcracker (unusual nutty fragrance), Gingerbread, Spiced Orange and Christmas in Cumbria (citrus peel, warming spices and a touch of vanilla). There’s everything from wax melts to reed diffusers, room sprays and wood wick candles, hand poured with quality soy wax. FIND HERE: Heather Anne Home Fragrance
Edited to add: Please note that this business will be taking a Christmas break from close of business on Friday 8th of December, so get your orders in quick and allow for UK snow disruption.
John Lewis Snapper Woven Women’s Pyjamas, Black/Multi | £33.60
Black cotton pyjamas with a sentient venus flytrap print on them. It’s Snapper from their Christmas ad, but they could easily be worn all year round for relaxing at home. What’s not to love? Even better they’re in a promotion at the moment, bringing the price down. FIND AT: John Lewis
Spa Day, Bubbly & Massage at Courthouse Hotel Shoreditch | £59 (was £145)
I can’t think of anything more relaxing than a morning or afternoon at a spa, and this deal looks just right for a post-festivities treat. You get spa access (pool and gym), a 50-minute massage (choice of Swedish, Lomi Lomi hot oil or deep tissue), and a glass of bubbly. FIND AT: Wowcher (also 2-for-£117)
