So the 21st December is the cut off for first class postage and I imagine this weekend is going to be a busy one when it comes to those last minute gifts for loved ones. If you are struggling to find something a little different, unique and beautiful then checkout my last minute gift guide for small and big budgets from kids, your partner as well as for the home there is something for everyone.

First up is a gift guide for her and I thought I would list a few things that are personally on my list, practical but stylish pieces. Cheerz have some awesome photographic products which an touch of polaroid to them. I have been in love with this yellow waterproof jacket from Seasalt for the past two years and would love pair them up with a some Superga. The Laura Ashely travel manicure set would come in handy for those who want to keep there nails looking good not he go and the Bake in Black has got to be on of the most awesome music inspired cooking and baking books I have ever come across. If you are looking for an inspiring organiser than look no further than the this weekly diary from Kikki K. Green people are always a favourite for some organic beauty treats and I dream of riding one of these classic Mango bikes around town.

Mens Christmas Gift Guide

I find a lot of people have struggled to find fun and useful gifts for their other half so I thought I would share a few things on Johns wishlist which will hopefully offer some ideas for you. We all love to cruze around on skateboards in our household so this Plain Lazy wallpaper graphic longboard skateboard would make a great gift. I was really happy to see this Father inspired quarterly magazine come out which has a strong focus on inspiring content and beautiful photography. To keep warm this winter why not opt for a pair of Universal works socks and warm beanie from Patagonia. We are both record collectors in our home so this Dust and Grooves book would be perfect for our bookshelf. If you are trying to inspire a different way of living or connecting with the wild check out Kevin McClouds new series - Escape to the Wild which explores people living within nature. Any outdoor loving man would find a Kanken bag useful, I use mine on a daily bases and they are perfect for any outdoor adventure as is this organic Chasing Wilderness tee. Every needs a decent alarm clock and this retro inspired Newgate one from Red Candy would sure to be a hit as would this Men Rock Moustache Wax

Baby gift guide
For Baby

I love that Baby G is going to be 10 months old this Christmas and even though he is still so small he is aware and I know he will really enjoy ripping off all the wrapping paper. If you have a little one at home or have family members with small babies all of these gifts would be perfect. We love these soft slumbersac grow bags which come in an array of sizes and designs. Wooden toys are perfect for this age and this Haba wooden jingle train rattle is so cute and great for teething. How amazing is this cute Christmas sweater from Boden and we love these organic sleepsuits from Panda and the Sparrow. Hamleys have a wonderful traditional toy selection including this ball and hammer set and to continue with the natural and eco friendly theme why not add this Weleda baby lotion and this super cute wooden plate from Blue Bronmide. My latest baby clothing crush has got to be Tobias and the Bear - just love these fox leggings so much.

kids gift guide
Kids gift guide

For slightly older kids you want something fun, engaging and at times also educational so this gift guide encompasses a bit of all of that. I really want to pick up this Light Up Rabbit for Mr A's room. Ikea have some really cool costumes in store at the moment including this bat one and Chatty feet make socks fun with this colourful box set. When I was a little girl I loved the Peter Pan stories and this ultimate collecting with beautiful illustrations would be perfect to spark some imagination into your little ones. We have always been fans of wooden toys and love this Goki Viking Ship and if you are more a crafty person than this Superhero Cape is a great choice.

Home gift guide
For the home

If you want to treat yourself or just add a new addition to your homewares here are a few Christmas gift ideas for the home. Personally I really want to pick up one of these Cinematic light boxes as well as a few of these gold sparkly mugs from H&M. I have had my eye on this wicker wooden rocking chair from Ikea longtime and would like to add that and this Beatnik print from Goldlion and arrow light to our living room. I am sure the kiddos would enjoy this vintage inspired ride on toy car which also makes a great feature and for the kitchen my number one "must have" gadget on my list is a Spiralizer

Hope you all have a stress free Christmas  


  1. I love the fox leggings and the beatnik print looks fab. You have some exciting ideas here!

  2. I love the yellow coat! Brings a bit of colour to the dark mornings x

  3. Yes please to the yellow coat and baking book.

  4. LOVE that coat, I have a real hankering for a yellow one. I've also been thinking about a lightbox too...

  5. I'm impossible to buy for! There's not much I want or need! I like the bicycle and have been considering getting one.
    I like the wooden plate and the Chatty feet socks. They'd make great gifts for the grandsons.

  6. Thanks for the last minute ideas Laura, they are all fab! I'm nearly finished but still need to get my dad something - he's always so difficult to buy for! xx

  7. Ooh love all of these bits Laura. The bike is dreamy!

  8. Excuse me, that is MY yellow coat you have at the top there... no one else is allowed to buy it! ;-P Those fox leggings are pretty damn cute though!
