Barefaced Chic Christmas Gift Guide 2017

Step away from the body lotion, I’ve got some chic answers to your Christmas present dilemmas.

I don’t know about you, but I find Christmas gift buying almost gives me an annual meltdown. It’s not the buying, it’s the choosing that has me metaphorically rocking in the corner repeatedly whispering, “What WILL she like?”

Which means I have to be pretty organised when it comes to Christmas shopping; in fact, I buy the majority of my gifts it the January sales. However, this year has been so crammed full that I did fear I may very well end up scrolling through websites and checking for ‘next day delivery’ options!

It was while living life at the speed of light that I went down with the mother of all chest infections (in fact it’s still hanging on like a bloody limpet). This left me bedridden for a week (doctor’s orders) with strict instructions to take it easy.

Now taking it easy and I don’t really see eye-to-eye. Don’t get me wrong, I can pull off a duvet day like a pro but enforced rest – I’d rather hack my own head off with a rusty scythe. So rather than spend my days flicking through Netflix, I spent many an hour surfing the net in an attempt to get my Christmas act together. And you know, I found some pretty interesting stuff which I thought I’d share with you. I’m nice like that 😊

I’ve split my findings into a number of categories, hopefully, there’ll be something to tickle even the fussiest of fancies (sounds quite rude but you know what I mean 😉). I’ve also added a ‘Christmas Shop’ to my top navigation bar.

So get your Christmas jumper on and get those gifts sorted with my Barefaced Chic Christmas gift guide.

    So glad you kept busy whilst recuperating Michelle. I know you’ve had a really bad run with illness, it’s the pits & can become depressing. Great idea to put this guide together & some gorgeous gifts you found too! I love the embroidered shirt collars, so unique yet reasonably priced. Good work lady, now finish getting well xx

    Sorry to hear you’ve not been well, Michelle! I hope it clears up off your chest soon. It’s so not nice suffering around Christmastime 🙁
    You certainly stayed busy though… what brilliant gift guides! One of my favourite things is the flamingo inside the Christmas bauble – so cool!

      I have a soft spot for that flamingo too. If we weren’t going away for Christmas he’d be sitting on my tree xxx

    This is a fab gift guide! Im obsessed with my home at the moment, so a few of the items in your home gifts have made their way onto my “suggestions” to my parents. I love the stag, the cosy throws and the glasses. Gorgeous! Thanks for sharing, and I hope you feel better!
