Last minute Christmas gifts

Twas the weekend before Christmas and….London is heaving with the pitter patter of last minute Christmas shoppers. Here’s a quick gift guide of last minute gifts, but you better hurry – time is running out! 

1. For beauty babes: Nails Inc Bling It On Leather & Skulls nail polish – £19
Perfect for beauty-lovers, the Nails Inc leather and skulls nail polish set has been inspired by the key SS13 trends – texture and leather. The polish applied glossy but dries matte with a leather-like texture and the set includes crystal skulls for an extra special touch. 

2. For the man in your life: Tom Ford for Men eau de toilette – £60
There is nothing more sensual than a Tom Ford fragrance. When I recieved a bottle of Black Orchid for Christmas a couple of years ago, I felt so spoilt. Between the beautiful, weighty bottle and delicious scent, it was the perfect present. The Tom Ford for Men scent is equally luxe and sensual, with rich notes of amber accord, cedarwood, patchouli and vetiver, it’s a smoky masculine scent and the gift which will keep on giving. 

3. For gadget geeks: Nostalgia Electrics hot air popcorn maker – £59.95
How fun is this retro popcorn maker? It makes up to 12 cups of popcorn per batch in a couple of minutes and the electric popping system uses hot air instead of oil which makes this a super healthy snack.

4. For everyone: Westfield gift card – £ Dependant on your generosity!
Gift cards are usually a total cop out in my book but I would love to find a Westfield gift card in my stocking. With literally hundreds of stores in Westfield White City and Westfield Stratford City, your lucky recipient be completely spoilt for choice, whether they fancy a bit of Aquascutum or Zara. 

5. For fabulous fashionistas: MariaFrancescaPepe Swarovski crystal stud ring – £52, was £75
MariaFrancescaPepe is one of my favourite jewellery designers, hand’s down. This ring includes all of her design signatures, including her tough, spikes.
