But minus the gold rings, French hens, turtle doves and more traditional things...

This year I thought I'd give gift-guiding a go, but properly! Curating a selection of items in the 12 days lead up to the beginning of December (read: where panic buying truly begins), I wanted to get in there early (ish) with some of my favourite picks from this years high street offerings, before everything flew out of stock! So, over the next twelve days you can expect twelve daily posts fitted with all of my favourite flat-layed things, with image clickable links (and everything below too- in case things aren't always working)- to make things super easy to navigate! I hope you enjoy reading as much as I enjoyed putting this together, and hopefully it will inspire some of this years gifting- plus by the time these posts are over it'll be OFFICIALLY ADVENT! Huzzah! Happy shopping!

Day 1 of Giftmas: The Best Friend
(Sketch Afternoon Tea, One Line A Day, Personalised Phone Case, Kikki K Stationary, Personalised Stationary, Kate Spade Book)

I always think buying for my best girl friends is one of the most fun things in the world (read: I normally buy them things I myself would like. Ahem). This year I've tried to mix things up a little, and as well as including some more purse friendly picks (the Skinny Dip phone case is one of my faves, and the Kikki K stationary is absolutely adorable) have included 'experiences' such as my favourite London afternoon tea, a diary they can begin as the New Year starts (and record all their favourite memories and feels), a book from everyone's favourite brand (and coincidentally something my best friend got me last Christmas) and finally some super special personalised stationary (a gift that is absolutely gorgeous, and something someone possibly wouldn't treat themselves to)!

Join me tomorrow for Day 2 of my guide! Same time, same place! See you there?
