This week it’s all about the gift guide.
First up it’s the girls. My edit this year focuses on beautiful, wallet friendly things you can pop in the basket without too much trouble. The hope is that these gifts will be cherished rather than end up as landfill.
So you’ll be relieved to hear I’ve steered well clear of the flashing, annoy-the-crap-out-of-you toys (here’s looking at you Smiggle, Jo Jo Bow, My Little Pony, and PJ Masks). I’m sure if your house is anything like mine that particular list will be seared into your memory already thanks to reminders on a daily/ hourly basis.
Scroll on for my gift to you – taking the frazzled frenzy out of Christmas shopping.
