A gift for the fashionable one


*For the fashionista who just can't wait for the Marni for H&M collection - Marni necklace*

Ingredients for a perfect Christmas online retail therapy session:

- Your computer/ iPad
- Click on your favorite online shopping site (mine is net a porter)
- Prepare a glass of warm mulled wine accompanied by some homemade    
  gingerman cookies
- Shop your Christmas gift list ;)

Here are some rules that I follow when buying a present:

- If buying something for the persons home, make sure you know their taste so the style of present matches with their interior decor

- I never buy perfumes as gifts as I think these are too personal unless I know exactly the one they want or the kind of scent they like

- Buy fashionable items for the fashionable person, if the person knows nothing about fashion and trends he/she will be happier with something more to their taste

- When buying a book know the persons taste, If he/she is interested in politics and history I won't buy them Sophie Kinsella's Shopaholic collection ;)

These are pretty much common sense... now back to the fashionable gift guide inspirations!!!

*For the sequin lover party girl - Dolce&Gabbana sequined felt fedora*

*For the fashionable traveller - Jimmy Choo luggage tag*

*For the friend with a fashionable house - Missoni candle*

*If your friend is like Pippa Middleton, always spotted with her takeaway hot drink and Modalu bag, this is a perfect gift for her ;) - Jimmy Choo hot drink sleeve*

*For the fashionable writer - Ostrich feather pen Maison Martin Margiela by L'atelier d'exercices*

*For the DVF lover - DVF earphones*

*For the YSL lover -YSL arty ring*

*For the fashionable player - Lanvin playing cards*

*For the fashion photography lover*

*For the sake of all those little coins wondering around our house! - Gucci coin purse*

*For the technofashionista - Dolce & Gabbana iPad sleeve*
