Christmas = presents! But if, like us, you’re tired of receiving boring bath bombs, bog-standard socks and vouchers for places you never shop (no offence auntie Sue), take a look at the Miss Selfridge gift guide. From shoes to stocking fillers, we’ve put together the ultimate list of pressies you definitely won’t be sending back this year. Pick your faves and make disappointment-face syndrome (it’s real, trust us) a thing of Christmas past.
Christmas without a new pair of shoes is like Christmas without chocolate, so add these to your wish list. Whether you’re into cute flats, sporty trainers or heels, make sure your feet get a treat this festive season. Over-the-knee boots are big news and will carry you through to spring — invest now and thank us later.
The perfect gift doesn’t exi… oh wait, yes it does, and it comes in bag form. The unofficial plus one to any event, a new bag definitely deserves a spot on your list. For daytime accessorising, carry a cute quilted style or a roomy tote, then reach for a metallic clutch on NYE (even if you’re just going clubbing in the kitchen).
If you don’t want to end up in the jumper your nan knitted this year, act fast and get these cosy jumpers and cardis on your list. Pair patterned and embellished jumpers with jeans or a faux (obvs) leather skirt on Christmas Day and invest in oversized cardigans to cosy up in when the temperature drops.
Dress to impress
“I have enough dresses” said no one ever. The festive season is all about indulgence, and we’re indulging in all the velvet, satin and lace (and mince pies) right now. Keep things casual with a floral midi under a chunky knit or go for all-out glamour with a metallic number — if you can’t get dressed up at Christmas, when can you?
A winter wardrobe must-have, a new coat should be at the top of every gal’s Christmas list, and this season we have so. many. options. From aviator jackets and snuggly teddy coats to parkas and belted styles, we’ve (literally) got you covered. Now all you need is a gingerbread latte to complete your cold-weather look.
The finishing touch (and maybe the best part), stocking fillers are all the little bits and pieces you forgot you needed, and they’re perfect for Secret Santa presents too! Complete your look with cute hair slides, chic headbands, statement jewellery and cool belts. And for that crisp Boxing Day walk, don’t forgot to add a bobble hat to your list. Sorry Santa, a selection box just won’t cut it anymore…
So, you’ve ticked off your own wish list (thanks Miss Selfridge gift guide!), now it’s time to pick some pressies for your friends and fam. Browse our Christmas shop for more inspo.
