Gorgeous goods to get on an Xmas wishlist


Christmas may still be a few months away, but as summer slides into autumn, that festive time will soon be upon us. Although planning your all-important gift list may seem a little premature, who hasn’t been on a shopping trip and gazed longingly at pretty clothes and knick-knacks that you couldn’t justify buying yourself?

Considering things you may need or fancy and collating a record now means that, come December, you’ll be spared the mad rush of gift buying for friends and family whilst trying to recall your own wish list. Whether you’re a fashionista with a penchant for the sartorial, a keen cook and a whizz in the kitchen or stylishly house-proud, the following gorgeous goods will definitely find a place on your Christmas list.

Michael Kors watch is sure to get you noticed, and makes for a great way to dress up a plain, tired outfit. This gold plated Jet Set timepiece features a crystal covered bezel for added bling, though the uniform colour lends an air of sophistication. A practical gift in a timeless design means any girl would be overjoyed to unwrap this beauty on Christmas morning!

Few can resist the charming prints and kitsch designs of Cath Kidston homeware and accessories. Even if you are far cry from domestic goddess, you can easily add colour and fun to your home with an item from the extensive range. This cotton apron in a cute washed roses design is ideal for keeping your outfit mess-free and its design will add a touch of vintage-inspired chic to your kitchen.


The French are famed for their sense of effortless style, and for the home, nothing beats the design classics of Le Creuset. Key pieces in striking tones make ideal gifts that will last a lifetime. Why not enjoy your morning espresso continental-style, with this cute set of espresso cups and saucers from Le Creuset’s CafĂ© Collection? And of course, an accompanying pain au chocolat is a must!

Every girl loves to indulge in luxury brands and homeware, and Christmas provides the perfect excuse to stock up! For more ideas, why not browse Achica homeware for the latest must-haves.

Finally, no Christmas list is complete without the obligatory pair of new gloves to keep hands toasty on those chilly days. Instead of traditional black or dark shades, opt for this multi-coloured leather pair in Paul Smith’s iconic swirl design. Stand out from your high-street sisters in the essential accessory for winter.

Whilst no one will be wishing away the summer, after taking note of these stunning gift ideas and browsing the net for further inspiration, we will all be left increasingly eager for December’s arrival!
