For Filling The Home With Festive Vibes
Jo Malone CBE has nailed all of the Christmas feelings with this glorious candle; it is a nostalgic, warm pine scent that makes me immediately want to cosy up by a fire with a cup of cocoa. An absolute must-have in my home as soon as November rolls around.

For Serious Mascara Lovers
I always have multiple mascaras on the go, and these are two of my absolute go-tos together in one set. I will buy one for me and one for several friends.

The Go-To Housewarming Treat
For some reason, 2021 has been the year of new homes among my close friends, both here and abroad. There is no better housewarming gift than a Diptyque candle; this one smells of a warm log fire and is my choice for cold winter days.

I love to indulge myself with a gift at Christmas (fully wrapped under the tree and opened on Christmas Day). This year, I’ll be splurging on the ultimate at-home skincare device.

The Gift With The Cool Factor
My fashionable hipster friends need their products to look impeccable, so this is such a unique and unexpected option. Mojave Ghost is my scent of choice, but Gypsy Water is a crowd-pleaser, too.
