The Girl in the North Christmas Gift Guide 2014

Monday, 1 December 2014

With Christmas just around the corner and my shopping being scarily near completion, I figured I'd put together a little gift guide. I think I've got almost every eventuality covered but let me know if you think I'm missing something and I'll get it added to the list! So let's get started shall we? One of my absolute favourite online stores from the North East is Let it Reign - This print is perfect for everyone but have a nosey round their store, the jewellery is fab & I want ALL the homeware. Count Your Lucky Stars (I got you a present) £18 from Let it Reign



This would be absolutely spot on for my friend Nicola! Or Laura, or Louise, or Hannah... or me! Tis the season to be merry after all. For anyone who likes a tipple, this cheeky wine glass is guaranteed a smile on Christmas Day.
Personalised Wine Glass from NOTHS £22



My very first boyfriend's parents bought me a little gift from Jo Malone in this scent back when I was a teenager and I became addicted. It's not too girly, so it's a perfect gift for a couple who are hard to buy for!
Jo Malone Lime Basil & Mandarin Candle £40 at Selfridges



Know any Great British Bakers (or some notso)? Make sure that Turkey is done in time - this Magnetic Timer from Anthropologie is just the business.
Anthropologie Magnetic Timer £12




For those of you who know I've been studying holistics part-time you'll know I'm now addicted to essential oils. The Anthropologie wellbeing essentials kit will help you fight off winter bugs & see you have a cosy nights sleep. If you're on a budget try the Boots one!
Wellbeing Essential Oil Set £48.00 Boots alternative cheaper version for £13.49


I only recently found out Links of London did rose gold! I'm not sure how I didn't know this. If you know someone bitten by the travel bug or who has sea legs this Anchor charm is a perfect sailors treat.
Links of London Rose Gold Anchor Charm £295


My inner-geek did a scream when I saw this! For your smart-phone nerd & social media addict you really cannot go wrong here, thank you Fujifilm.
Fujifilm Smartphone Printer £160


Christmas Eve. Christmas Morning. Need I say more. Everyone needs a set of The White Company Pyjamas in their life.
The White Company Pj's £38


For anyone who knows a music lover where a cd or itunes voucher just won't do it - these retro Roberts DAB radios look and sound great. The only problem you'll have is which colour to choose....
£159.99 Selfridges


My brother is notoriously hard to buy for (sorry Adam if you're reading this) - Mr. Porter's Stylish Man Volume One is the perfect gift for a tricky stylish man!
The Manual for a Stylish Life - Mr Porter £20


For the Northern'ers! I LOVE these prints from the Geordie Gift company. I believe they sell them on the quayside market at the weekend but you can get yours right here online!
Whey Aye Man Print £14.99



Now I feel like I've covered all bases BUT if you think I've missed someone or you have an amazing gift you'd like me to add to list, drop me an email katy@girlinthenorth.com
