If you follow me on Instagram it won’t come as a surprise to you that I have been seriously slacking on the Christmas shopping front. Apart from shopping for Allegra (my little girl) I haven’t done much else at all and hence why this Christmas gift guide is being published so close to Christmas. I feel like I have just been too busy to really dedicate the time I once used to to select the perfect gifts for my family and friends. However, the gift guide is now complete and I have been able to get lots of inspiration just from putting it together. I am certainly a creature of habit and shop the same places year in year out. I am a fan of the UK high street and just find I can never go wrong with presents from Marks and Spencer, Next, John Lewis and of course The White Company. They are the shops that are on my local high street and if I miss the Christmas cut-off date for ordering online I can always pop to the shops if I really have to!
They say Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year, but it’s also the most expensive and it just becomes even more so once you have children. I feel that the gifts I give are a reflection on my taste and style, which I take pride in, so despite this being a gift guide for her under £50, I have in no way compromised on my style and taste. This gift guide is for mamas like me, on a budget, limited for time and needing the convenience of the high street if all else fails.
