christmas gifting...

This Saturday we spent most of the day getting a head start wrapping a few Christmas presents for our nearest and dearest. You can imagine quite a lot of thought goes into our wrapping situation and this year we opted for a palette of black, white and gold with pops of brown paper. Yups, we keep it sleek and simple even when it comes to wrapping! It's definitely a task we've come to grow and love and the prettier the presents look the better :)

Whilst we haven't done all of our Christmas shopping just yet, top of our list are two of the favourite people in our lives, our wonderful Mums and our amazing husbands. Yet for some reason it's always a struggle to know what to buy them. We always seem to go for the same thing year after year, mainly clothes (!) but this time we thought about practicality as well. How many jumpers and scarves can our Mums and husbands actually own?! 

We're pretty sure it's not just us who tackles Christmas wrapping in appropriate comfy clothing! For us it was cashmere onesies & slippers which we can confirm we didn't take off all day...

For our husbands, who both commute daily into the city, a pair of cosy gloves seemed like a really thoughtful and useful gift. We've often bought them knitted pairs in the past but sometimes find they don't last that well.  A leather pair seemed like the perfect option, being smart enough for suits and casual enough for weekend wear too. In fact, these leather ones have a knitted lining, which is actually detachable - so you get two pairs of gloves for the price of one! Don't just think of boots and slippers when it comes to UGG, their winter accessories are amazing gifts for anyone special.

Can you tell we take it very seriously? Camomile tea at the ready to keep us calm!

All wrapped and ready for our better halves...

You may remember our personalised UGGs from back in October when we went on an amazing trip to Soho Farmhouse. Since then the boots have become our go to weekend staples for any relaxed look and are by far the comfiest shoes on the planet! We wear them with our skinnies, our boyfriends and our trackies and they make the perfect travel companion too. At the time our Mums seemed particularly smitten by them so we knew instantly that they were the perfect gift. Neither of our Mums have owned a pair of UGGs before so it was a no brainer really, plus the fact that we can get them personalised with their initials makes them even more special! If you hadn't heard UGG are now offering a bespoke mongramming service on their classic iconic boots for men and women. You know we love a bit of personalisation and it's such a fun way to make something your own.
**Take note shoppers, whilst this in store bespoke monogramming service usually costs £15 for any classic UGG boot, for the festive period it is now free on any classic UGG boot in certain stores** (click here for details)

It's the best feeling when they're all done :)
