The gift of giving (stuff people don’t want)
I received precisely zero gifts this year. Ok, actually my friend Manny bought me some chocolates I’ll never eat, and I think my mum may have got me something I forgot about the moment it was unwrapped. But in comparison with previous years, it was great. No pretending appreciation, no scouring people’s pockets and drawers for receipts, it was actually the best Christmas I’ve had for 10 years.
Anyway as I mentioned here, I was gifting myself daily in the run up to Christmas. It’s so much fun to do that. On the 23rd I got myself a new pair of silk pyjamas in champagne, on Christmas Eve I was the fortunate recipient of a silver inscribed bracelet, and for Christmas Day I got lot’s of champagne and a six-course lunch at the Savoy.
I thought it was only right to share this fantastic discovery of self-gifting with you, and also share with you a gift guide for next year. These are the types of things that would make any girl happy. This is also good for guys who have girlfriends or wives and really fcked it up this year (as most probably did), because next year you might get another chance to make it right.
So I’ve trawled through the Internet to find some things you/I would like.
This is to die for. I love a PVC moment.
OLIVIA VON HALLE Coco silk-satin pajama set
These are a must. Crying in bed at how sad and UN-marriable you are is only acceptable if you’re wearing these.
STella McCartney LIGHT GREY FALABELLA SHAGGY DEER FOLD OVER TOTE
I really wanna keep all my shit in this. And it really annoys me that currently I don’t keep all my shit in this.
I really want one of these in my fish tank. This could be the perfect gift for any Marine-based enthusiast.
ESPA Life at Corinthia
It would be ridiculous not to take someone you care about here. It’s fully for yourself but hidden under the guise of something for them.
Frends Bronze Embellished Nappa Headphones
If nobody got me these I’d presume they hate me.
Dolce & Gabbana Embellished leather gloves
We don’t have a dishwasher at our house so I pay someone to do it for me. But if I had these I’d do it myself.
PINK MAC BOOK CASE
Any girl that likes to google herself/boys she fancies. You’d be a fool not to get her one of these.
That’s a few options for you, I mean your loved ones next Christmas!
