Line your stockings this year with these smart and stylish buys, which are both brilliant and within budget.
There are two camps when it comes to Christmas: those who prepare, preen and plan, and those who don’t.
If you, like many of us, reside in the latter camp then take solace in the fact that you’re not alone, there is a horde of other, equally last-minute, humans similarly scrambling to populate the base of the tree and fill stockings.
And it’s regarding stockings that we come bearing good news: it’s one thing to tick requests off a Christmas list, but it’s another to pack a stocking till it’s full. But that is where we professional shoppers (me) come in handy, for we’re particularly well-versed in what’s hot, what’s not, and what will fit that empty slot in your present line-up.
In case you have a fashion-lover in your life, one for whom style is more of a way of life than a state of mind, then here are 29 gift ideas that we can guarantee they’ll love. All that’s left for you to do is sit back and add to basket…
