This is a tricky time of year… when shopping for others, why do we find so many things we like for ourselves!

Here are some tempting titbits you might like to give ….or keep yourself!

I love this creative patchwork of wool checks and plaids, which will look amazing wrapped around.

So simple, but so beautiful for coins or makeup.

Never tire of a fresh stripy top. Layer now under knits, with sleeves showing from elbows.

A pretty gift in vintage hues…I love an initial or two.

Reversible with mustard check on one side and painted abstract on the other. Gorgeous with camel coats.

Statement socks are always a must under jean turn ups and these from Hobbs offer £4 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, granting wishes to children with life threatening conditions.

A little bit of shine on your toes is all you need to make a look, the rest can be paired down.

Even when food shopping I fall for homes items, this plate wouldn’t look amiss in Anthropologie.

Boutique shopping in Cranleigh and these maps of cities scarves are a great pressie, especially when you choose a location once visited. Paris, New York, Budapest the list goes on….

The countdown has really begun…
