With Christmas around the corner, it always helps to be thinking of ideas for that certain someone – the one in your life who is all about fashion, who it takes effort to please and who knows what they like. These three gift ideas are guaranteed to delight your fashionista friend and to inspire your creative Christmas-shopper side to awaken.



First on the list and at the bottom of the price incline are the adorable holiday themed socks that are taking over high street havens like Topshop. From trees to robins, snowmen to gingerbread men, these socks are the perfect stocking-fillers. Decorated with bells, glitter, bobbles and ribbon, they sparkle and keep feet cosy warm all winter. With the wide selection, this is a universally loved gift with a personal touch.



Another loveable idea is the beany hat – not the plain ones that everyone has in the back of their wardrobes, but the perfectly-pommed, soft, woolly creations all over the style scene. In River Island, there are pastel coloured, floppy beany hats with the softest faux fur poms imaginable. Up the market, the cutest of boutiques in Blackrock – Mademoiselle – has even more luxurious, fox fur beanies with changeable poms, to mix and match for the colour combination you want. These items are winter essentials and bring out the best in fun outfits in a way that every fashion follower will love.



Lastly, a MAC brush kit is the perfect wow-gift. Each uniquely shaped tool is an object of lust for every show stopping fashionista. The bristles, made from enriched duo fibres, are the ideal applicators and the brushes come in every shape and size, from contour to buffer. Advanced sets include gorgeous beaded bags to hold all of the essentials together. Professional brush kits, such as the Keepsakes kit, are loved for their soft and luxurious feel and their miraculous blending and shading. They are sure to be the main event on Christmas morning.
