The beginning of December often welcomes a sense of excitement for the coming weeks and in and amongst all the celebratory soirées there's the age-old and much-loved tradition of exchanging gifts. We asked Josie from fashion and lifestyle blog, Fashion Mumblr, to share her top gifting picks for the season as well as the piece that's topping her own wishlist this Christmas.
We ask Josie from Fashion Mumblr to share her top Christmas gifting picks for the season
FOR MY BEST FRIEND
My best friend is always raiding my wardrobe for knitwear so this Christmas I'm treating her to a chunky knit of her own (she has dropped enough hints!) and this classic cream design is a super stylish option.
for my boyfriend
My boyfriend loves to receive gifts that he can wear so instead of the classic novelty knit under the tree this year, I’ve chosen this sophisticated grey alternative – it’s a piece he can rock all season long.
for my mum
Statement outerwear makes a striking alternative to classic, neutral tones so this plum-coloured wrap coat will make the perfect present for mum and bring a little colour into each of her winter looks.
for my dad
When it comes to buying for dad, something practical that he will use regularly is always a must. I've chosen this holdall which will suit both for work trips and weekends away.
THE PERFECT STOCKING FILLER
I think there should always be a little luxury wrapped up inside a Christmas stocking and this beautiful grey scarf ticks all the boxes – it’s a timeless accessory but the pompoms add a playful edge.
topping my own wishlist
My dream Christmas gift this year would be this reversible shearling gilet. It's timeless, luxe and just a little indulgent. If I don't find it wrapped up under my tree, it may just have to be something I treat myself to.
