The bits I’ve chosen for this gift guide are things I have chosen because they appeal to me, you could say this is almost my wish list ! I have not been influenced or paid by anyone to include them or their products, neither are the links affiliated I’m just trying to make things easier if you do fancy them!
I hope you get some ideas that help you
Love Moschino Oversized Sun Glasses – E155
I love love love these sunnies !!!! But you can choose whatever tickles your loved ones fancy … my point is just because it ain’t really sunnies weather doesn’t mean they don’t make a super gift.
Whether it’s for winter sun or summer which really (isn’t that far away) I think a good pair of sunglasses is a super treat for a loved one, more research will have to be done than when buying a more conventional gift as they are quite personal but that’s only a small hurdle !
I found these on the littlewoods Ireland site but I’m sure can be got from many other sources too.
Jo Browne solid perfumes are handmade with love using beeswax and essential oils and although I have not purchased myself I have it on good authority that these are in fact as amazing as they look and sound !
They are available in three different aromas Floral (lemongrass and wild jasmine), Sweet (citrus and crushed vanilla) and oriental (spice tea and honey) and are packaged in a beautiful and economic friendly bamboo tube.
New to the range is a gorgeous facial cleansing balm which I am treating myself to this Xmas !!! Containing Camillia oil it is sure to revive and replenish dry and tired skin. Either of these beautiful products would be well received by any lady but especially by those who like to use products with less chemicals and nasties in the ingredients !

McWilliam Tote Bag – E60
McWilliams holdalls are notorious around Cork and within the sailing circles but maybe you didn’t realise that they do more than just holdalls.
From pegbags , pencil cases to clothing there is something on the McWilliam site that will appeal to everyone but my favourite are the totes in particular this black,red and white one.
As with the holdalls you are sure of strength and quality along with a stylish appearence. I love these bags as handbags are not for me and only useful on a child free night out in my opinion !

DKNY Bryant Sutton Envelope Clutch Bag – E240
You cannot go wrong with a nice black bag and this I think is amazing… It is timeless and classy and very few could find fault if they received this on Xmas morn ! I’m not really a designer fiend but I must say I do love DKNY whether it be clothes or accessories.
A piece by Thomas Sabo from E25
If you have never visited http://www.thomassabo.com or seen some of his beautiful pieces before then you are missing out.
I first discovered Thomas Sabo when looking for black earrings for my wedding that were classy and didn’t look like costume jewellery and along with finding the perfect pair I’ve lusted after many a piece since!
Along with the pretty golds and usual nice pieces what attracts me to his designs are the unusual vibes eg the boohoo, aztech and darker feels that his pieces give off while still looking classy and are of beautiful quality.
Whatever your loved ones style your sure to find a perfect piece here at http://www.thomassabo.com or at the stores they stock.
