We’ve all got them. They’re the friends who already have everything they want – or they’re so stylish that you’re terrified of getting the wrong thing.
Or you’d like to get something for your sister that she’d never consider buying herself.
Or, more realistically, you’d like these things for yourself.
Here’s the final Edited gift guide – and it’s for all those difficult-to-buy-for-women in your life.

I am going to admit that I find Christmas shopping for the kids really stressful.
Mainly, I don’t want to go mad and spend a fortune, obvs. Everyone else is always so generous and they already get SO MUCH. Plus the children’s dismissal of gifts within seconds of unwrapping them ready for the next present-high really irritates me.

There are just too many nice knits on the high street.
And while I might be rotating a neat line of grey, navy and striped numbers on a week by week basis (CANNOT BUY ANYTHING MORE RIGHT NOW), it is my duty to provide a definitive guide to those that need your attention. read more…

A confession. I haven’t checked out French mail order site La Redoute for ages, it’s just one of those brands that has passed me by. Then last week I met up for lunch with a lovely (and stylish) friend who had the most gorgeous blush pink coat on and admitted she’d bought it from a brand called Coralie Marabelle for La Redoute. read more…
