Your Ultimate Christmas Present Shopping Guide

It’s that time of the year… The red cups are out- unless you live in the UK- because here they come out a day after Halloween, weird eh? Anyways, everyone is excited for family gatherings, amazing food, cozy jumpers, bed socks and maybe even some snow! Yet one thing is troubling me… What do I buy for the ones I love? Whether it’s a secret santa or a present for your sister, you’re all covered, just keep reading.

I personally am always very excited for Christmas even though I’m not from a country that actually celebrates it. I used to love that we got Christmas holidays because I went to a french school, and now I love it because in 5 days I will fly back and finally see my family (and Dorothy!!) after many months!

  • Books

Books are always great gifts and Urban Outfitters has a really nice collection. I’m pretty sure no one would be disappointed with such a gift!

How To Be Parisian Book: One of the best style books I’ve read. So inspiring.

Where’s Karl: A Lagerfeld version of the famous game Where’s Waldo?

Banksy, Wall & Piece Book: Though my views on Banksy are quite controversial, this book is great for a person who doesn’t know his art.

642 Things To Write About: I actually own this and have done most of it. So very inspirational for times when you don’t know what to write about.

Me, You, Us: Such a cute book to fill with your s.o.

Scorsese in 10 Scenes: Martin Scorsese. Need I say more?

Kim K Selfish Book (aka birthday present for Yeezy) : Okay probably a waste of money since the gorgeous Kim K posts almost all her selfies on Instagram. But, honestly, wouldn’t it be fun to go through it?

Travel Guide for the Young, Sexy and Broke: This book is so tempting every time I walk in an UO, looking at me from the corner and showing me images of the fun I could have in Spain with 20 quid a day. Stop it, you.


  •  Mugs and Tumblers

I love tea. You love tea. So why not spoil your friend with a cool mug or tumbler, so that they can think of you every time they sip on their green tea? Another favourite of mine is infused water, Urban Outfitters has such a wide selection of mugs, infusers and tumblers.



  • Home Gifts

I know, this sounds like an UO sponsored post (it totally isn’t). It’s just that I love their home collection so much! I could decorate my room with items only from UO Home. You could get your loved ones cozy gifts to watch the snow with!

Tip: Get them a tapestry. Who doesn’t love a tapestry?


  • For Guys

The gifts I stated are usually Unisex, but here are some things specifically for guys (though I’d use every single one of these)!


  • The Perfect Xmas Jumper

Who doesn’t love a cozy jumper? Christmas is a time when you can say “f*ck it” to calories and fat percentages and dig in, and jumpers are perfectly comfortable to hide your food baby. And in case I forgot to mention, they are also very cute.

I want them all pweeze.. So so cute! Even covers you coupes! My personal favourite was the pug one. I actually own it. This selection is from Asos and Topshop.


  • Skinnydip Phone Cases

As a person in love with Skinnydip, I personally think that you can get anything from the shop and your friend would be perfectly happy. I have the Llama one and want every single other design in my room.


And as a bonus, if your friend is as obsessed as I am with the Luck Cat, this would be a perfect gift:

  • LUSH Gifts

I’m a sucker for LUSH Cosmetics, completely cruelty free and they even fight against animal testing- which is totally awesome. Their products are so natural and light. I personally can’t go to sleep without some Celestial on my face. Christmas is a perfect time to spoil your loved ones with heavenly smelling gifts!

  • Cozy Pyjamas (and slippers!)

Who doesn’t love being tucked in with a soft blanket and festive pyjamas and binge watching movies all day? (maybe with some takeaway pizza). Here are some of my favourite pyjamas!


That’s all folks! Hope you find what you’re looking for.

Happy holidays,
