I’m so sad that Christmas gift guide week is almost over. These are easily some of my all-time favourite features to create on Daisybutter, and I LOVE seeing both what you pick up and the recommendations you share with me in the comments.
Earlier in the week I shared my small business favourites and stocking filler ideas and, for the final gift guide, I thought I’d collate a piece full of the items that are essential – well, nearly! – for a very Daisybutter lifestyle.
Leave this post up around your other half, or use it to find inspiration for your friends who’re just like us in the Daisybutter community.
Jacquard-knit Jumper, £14.99, H&M
There’s nothing I love more than a cosy knit, and this jacquard daisy one from H&M is dreamy. What I love the most is that it isn’t too chunky, so you can wear it underneath thicker coats without accidentally getting too warm.
RK68 65% Mechanical Gaming Keyboard (Red Switch), $44.99, Royal Kludge
One of my most frequently asked questions is: ‘where is your click keyboard from?!’ and it’s the RK68 Mechanical Keyboard from Royal Kludge. I love the 65% format and I chose red switches for the satisfying ASMR tapping that isn’t too intense. Great for the gamers in your life.
English Daisy Necklace, £99, Daisy Jewellery
My girls got me this ‘English Daisy’ necklace for my 30th birthday, and I wear it constantly. It’s a gorgeous gift for your best friend or even for a parent. Despite the higher price point, it really is a beautiful piece of jewellery to treasure forever.
Milk Musk Eau de Parfum, £120, Molton Brown
When it comes to fragrance, I’m always wearing Molton Brown’s Milk Musk Eau de Perfume. It’s creamy, nostalgic and comforting. What’s more, these collectible glass bottles can be refilled at selected stores. It’s so great to be able to pop in and refresh my stash for a fraction of the price, and your sustainability-conscious pals will appreciate this gesture too.
Cricut Maker 3, £399, Cricut
I got my Maker 3 machine back in October and it’s one of my favourite things EVER. If your crafty friend, family member or partner has been coveting a Cricut machine from afar… it’s surely worth it. The crafting possibilities are endless, and they’re so much fun. My tip? Keep an eye out for Black Friday deals and bundle offers from retailers including John Lewis & Partners, very.co.uk and Hobbycraft.
Personalised Life Planner, £37.95, Martha Brook London
Before my bullet journal adventures, I was still an avid planner. I’ve always enjoyed a good diary and all of my friends are exactly the same. Martha Brook London’s Personalised Life Planner is absolutely beautiful, and I can’t wait to use mine in 2022. I’ll be using it alongside my bullet journal – stay tuned to discover how I’ll be staying organised next year.
Logo-print Purse and Cardholder, £330, Stella McCartney
These days, I don’t invest in nearly as many designer bags and small leather goods as I once did. However I picked up my first Stella McCartney bag this year, and I can hand on heart recommend her pieces. Sustainably made from vegan leather, Stella McCartney have an effortlessly cool and fresh feel about all of their collection. And I love this purse and cardholder set.
Woven Coffee Cup Holder, £4.50, Mama Faye and Evie
One of my most-used items is a coffee cup holder than my best friend made for me. I can wear it around my neck or in the crook of my arm, and it is SO handy when on dog walks and I need to have my hands available for holding a lead and other dog-walking essentials. These woven holders from Mama Faye and Evie are so darling; they’re affordable too and will change your dog-walking game.
Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant, £51, LookFantastic
Skincare gifts really give. And if you want to treat them to something that’ll change the game, choose Dermalogica’s Daily Microfoliant. As one of the brand’s loyal Skinfluencers, I’ve had the pleasure of using this for years now and I simply can’t be without it. The gentle powder-to-foam formula exfoliates skin and buffs away old skin cells to leave your complexion baby soft and radiantly glow.
Apple Grove Soy Candle, £16, & Chai
Naturally, one of my most frequently asked questions is: ‘which candle scent do you recommend?’ and I must admit it constantly changes. But I’ve been exclusively burning our Apple Grove and Brewster Soy Candles all autumn and I think they make the perfect Christmas present too. Apple Grove is the fall/winter version of our bestselling Signature Soy Candle – think notes of green apple, caramel and cocoa creme whip. So dreamy.
Boba Plushie, £18, Little Egg Crafts
I’m always quizzed about the crochet bubble tea plushie that appears in some of my blog photos and Instagram Stories. Well, it was a generous gift from my friend Winnie, and it’s from fellow ESEA artists Little Egg Crafts. A gorgeous little gift for your boba-obsessed friend, or even for littles.
The ‘All Too Well’ Knit Scarf, £35, Taylor Swift
After ‘The Cardigan’ pretty much became my personality this year, I’m sure you’ll all be pleased to know that that focus has shifted to the ‘All Too Well’ scarf. It’s so cosy and snuggly, and it’ll wear perfectly with my camel coat. Surprise a Swiftie near you with this beautiful merch.
Which pieces do you have your eye on? And, is that for a friend or for you? I won’t judge.
