All they want for Christmas… the Life of Yablon 2012 Gift Guide

With the remaining number of shopping days now on the serious decrease, it’s time to knuckle down and get that Santa-buying hat on. So, I thought I’d help out  (think:  blog elf) and show you a few of my favourite things:

Godchildren.  Both of my delicious godchildren are kind enough to have their birthdays in December too – giving me the right to really spoil them.

Molly Brown birthstone bracelet

God boy is ten and BIG into cricket so I’m organising a tour of Lords Cricket Ground for the 2 of us in January (quality time built in too).  Boy fashion is so tricky but I reckon that’s why Johnnie invented Boden.

God girl is in luck.  Early this year, I interviewed Erica Illingworth, founder of little girl jeweller Molly Brown. Her birth stone is turquoise making her a prime candidate for the Collection 12 December Birthstone Bracelet.

The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein

My nephews and nieces who don’t yet own a copy of my favourite children’s book, The Giving Tree will be receiving their copy.

Per-fekt lash perfection gel

Glamorous girlfriends will be given Per-fekt Lash Perfection Gel, £24. Strengthening, lengthening, darkening, conditioning those lashes ready to flutter into 2013.

stocking fillers from Honey Jam

This week (Kate Moss and) I stocked up on perfectly-retro stocking fillers at Honey Jam (2 Blenheim Crescent, W11).

Little BU nail polishes

Mini is campaigning for painted toes as her Christmas beach treat. Little BU sent me these non-toxic, odourless polishes which will wash off in the sea.

cashmere bed socks

For a pure luxury gift, check out these merino and cashmere bed socks £42.

icharger for iphone 4 & 4S

You won’t find a more useful present (for any iPhoner) than this charge-on-the-move gadget £13.99

Beats by Dr Dre Solo headphones

Find me a man who wouldn’t want to block out all the noise of Christmas with these Beats by Dr Dre Solo headphones £118

Hayley Menzies fur trim shawl

And finally, a pipe dream gift which only exists in fairytales, I give you (if only) Hayley Menzies’ signature recycled fur trim cashmere shawl £228

ps Needless to say, gifts are materialistic and a big cup of tea in bed is equally brilliant to receive!
