This time of year gets crazy busy so I’m all about trying to simplify things as much as possible and staying organised, right down to gift shopping. Make lists, tick them off and enjoy that satisfaction with a glass of mulled wine! If you have any blanks in your gift lists, I hope this post will inspire some ideas for the special people in your life (or for yourself 😉). If you’d like to look at a wider selection of ideas, you can hop straight to my GIFT SHOP board on Pinterest which has all of the below and lots more. Happy shopping!

PLANNER + PEN SET £22 from Anthropologie. You can’t beat a pretty planner to help you stay organised.
OLYMPUS PEN E-PL8 CAMERA £299 for the white one from John Lewis (other colours available). I have heard very good things about this camera. If you know a special someone who wants to up his/her photography game beyond a camera phone, this stylish brilliant compact camera will be very well received!
ROBERTS REVIVAL RD70 DAB/DAB+/FM BLUETOOTH DIGITAL RADIO WITH ALARM £179.99 from John Lewis. With classic good looks and all the functionality you could possibly want from a modern radio, this Roberts digital radio is perfect and comes in a choice of retro colours.
WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE’S STAR WARS TRILOGY £22.75 from Amazon. There are many many cool/funny/interesting books but this series tops it for me for the sheer ingenuity. Know someone who loves Star Wars and also appreciates Shakespeare? This is the gift for them, if they’ve not already got it! There are more books in the series that can perhaps serve as their next gift. 🙂
