It’s beginning to look a whole lot like Christmas. And we could not be more excited. (We even had a few flakes of snow this weekend, in London!)
And while our Stateside readers still have Thanksgiving to get through, and our Southern Hemisphere couples are just in the throws of summer, in this part of the world, we couldn’t be more ready for mince pies, festive movies and of course, wish lists for Santa Claus.
Which is why we’ve decided to kick off our Christmas Gift Guide series today, not just to get us all into the seasonal spirit, but so you can have your shopping done early (and your own gift requests in ahead of time too!)
Over the next week or two, we’ll be bringing you lots of gorgeous gift ideas for the grooms in your life, your parents (and in-laws), the little ones in your bridal party, and the not so little ones too.
But first up, we simply had to get things started with… The Brides!
Whether you’re shopping for a bride you know, or yourself, your BFF or your other half, we reckon there’s something in here every B2B (that’s bride-to-be!) or newlywed, will adore.
Here’s a few of our favourite things to get you inspired (oh and scroll down for our super-handy shoppable picks at the bottom!)…
L-R from the top: Pink Heels, Christian Louboutin from My Theresa // Rose Gold Notebook, Kate Spade from Hippenings // OMG Phone Cover, Rifle Paper Co // Hummingbird Watch, Olivia Burton // Personalised necklace, Minetta Jewellery on Etsy // Trinket Tray, Ban.do from Hippenings.
Row Three: Paris print, Rifle Paper Co // Lipstick, Love, Honour & Be True // Tassel Earrings, Suzywan from ASOS // Trainers, Nike from Net-a-Porter // Initial Mug, Anthropologie // Passport Cover, Ban.do from Hippenings.
We think we’ve got every kind of bride covered, what do you reckon?
For the fit lady in your life, think headphones and cool trainers, the flash packer will adore Trousseau & Co’s monogrammed hatboxes or a chic passport cover, or if she’s a super organised bride, get her a gorgeous planning binder, a cute notebook or a fab watch.
Of course, jewellery, handbags, candles, make-up and perfume are always appreciated, but if your pal is super excited about being a wife, why not bag her some official bride merch? Think wifey mugs and tees, a cute piece of bride bling, and or a loved-up tote.
Don’t forget to support local and start-up businesses too – we’re a tad obsessed with Irish site Hippenings and UK site Brooklyn Bridal, both have just launched, are absolutely gorgeous, and laden down with pretty purchases! Etsy is always a handy go-to for crafty buys too.
And, just because we know Christmas shopping can be tough (and time consuming!) we’ve put together 50 of our most prized finds in this easy shoppable widget below.
Happy shopping (and hint dropping!)
