Holidays are coming!

So Christmas is upon us, the red Starbucks cups are gracing chilly hands, the tills are ringing with lavish present buying and tonight we even had carol singers at the door (boys wearing hoodies with their hands cupped, Oliver style – aww how lovely).

Today was the first day I actually felt a little bit of festive cheer; I watched a cheesy Christmas film, I looked in awe at my sister’s Christmas tree and I finally started to think about what I had to buy. Ahhh lots to do in a short amount of time, I’m beginning to feel nervous.

Present buying is tricky when you love shopping (for yourself) as I can’t get past looking for presents for me. Plus I never seem to know what to buy people, especially the ones that appear to have everything already. I love getting people surprises rather than presents they know about and most of all I have to think about the pennies, what with this darned recession.

I think will be my saving grace this Christmas, it’s like Toys ‘R’ us for grown ups. I will also be hitting Marc by Marc for some last minute cheap designer goodies. I think Urban Outfitters is great for some cool home presents and I don’t think you can go wrong with a scented candle from Jo Malone.

As I frantically scour online for possible presents I have discovered something so utterly fabulous words can not explain. I introduce to you the limited edition Christian Louboutin for ‘Cat Burglar’ doll, which comes with three extra pairs of mini Louboutin shoes – each with a box and shoe bag. It’s £100 and is available on Think this could be the perfect present for that friend in your life that just has everything.

So everyone, I wish you all the best of luck with your Christmas shopping and please don’t tell me you’ve finished yours already as I may just go into meltdown.

    I’m the worst gift giver ever. Most people know what I’ve gotten them before they unwrap the gift. I do have all my shopping done this year but am still not feeling that festive spirit. Hopefully that will change.

    it’s hard work isn’t it?!
    You should trick them, lead them into thinking you’re giving an entirely different gift – that should work-get them off the scent by wrapping it in various guises.
