CASHMERE I’ve recently discovered Crumpet Cashmere. And boy am I glad I have. As well as some seriously cool leopard cashmere knits, they do slouchy jumpers of dreams. This grey boyfriend style is the ultimate in Xmas luxe.

COSY Getting all kinds of hygge is what Christmas is all about. What do you mean you thought it was about giving? No, it’s all about wearing your PJ’s and not leaving the house for two days. These slippers from Boden are too pretty to hide away, which means you may have to be sociable wearing them.

CACTUS Plants are the gift that’ll keep on giving. Geo Fleur offer a plant subscription service which will send the recipient a plant per month. Love.

CREASES You won’t have any – not if you become as obsessed by this Sleep Cream as I have. I’ve mentioned this M&S Formula lotion before, but it really is lovely. The bottle looks sophisticated and it would be a brilliant present for a new mum or just someone who wants to look as though they’ve had enough sleep.

CREATIVE I’ve been looking for a wall hanging, but don’t want to spend an absolute fortune (some of them are super expensive). This monochrome tapestry is by gorgeous online boutique India May Home. Warning, you may not just look at the wall hangings.

COVER My clever friend Christine (she who designed my blog logo) has set up her own Etsy store selling these gorgeous personalised iPad holders, clutches and purses. Get in now for monogrammed presents for Christmas.

COPY Write everything down. I have to these days, otherwise I forget what I left the room for. Cute notebooks are always appreciated. This one is from Sainsburys.

COTTON You may have seen these on my Instagram, but Lily & Lionel’s covetable leopard pyjamas have to be top of the list for comfort and cool.

CANDLES I don’t understand people who say candles are boring presents – I LOVE them. This one from West Elm would make a lovely storage jar after you’ve finished it too.

CHOOS These Aztec print shoes from M&S are part of their next season now collection of accessories, meaning they’ve just been shown at their Spring preview, but are now available in store. They would work with everything from a black trouser suit to a bold coloured midi.

COOL Any great print or piece of art are on my Christmas wish-list – but I love the selection at Rockett St George. This one would look amazing mixed in with a wall of other pieces or on a dark wall making a statement all of its own.
