LAST MINUTE CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE FOR BASIC BITCHES

It's officially T-minus 4 days until Christmas. holy shit.
 This festive season, my mojo to get the perfect prezzies has disappeared entirely. 
I'm usually a start buying in September kinda gal but I've lost the will the wow this year.

Instinctively, I've cocooned myself into a comfort blanket of procrastination which can be roughly translated into: I've left all of my Christmas shopping until the very last minute because I simply cba. 

The collective basic bitches (you know who you are) reading this will nod their heads in a solemn sense of woe because they too understand that this detrimental decision is about to cause all kinds of havoc. The day we've been dreading is looming. We have come to the realisation that we can procrastinate no more. We mentally confirm to ourselves that tomorrow is the day we do the all nighter online shop. Tomorrow is when we make mulitple shopping centre trips and tomorrow is the evening we will spend conducting a conveyer belt-esque wrapping marathon. 

We have left this until tomorrow, because tomorrow, is of course payday.
 *sings hallelujah* (Alexandra Burke Christmas No.1 hallelujah - obviously)


And what to buy when tomorrow arrives?
Fear not, my fellow basic bitch - for I have compiled a foolproof guide to assist you upon your quest to complete all Christmas shopping within 24hours. 
Your Welcome.




1. THE BLOSSOM BAG STRAP.

Treat your loved one to something unique and statement this year with a gorgeous bag strap. 
It's the perfect way to up-cycle your existing bags and is even vegan friendly! Suitable for the fussiest of friends. 
It's from a lovely boutique brand called Gabrielle By P - they have lots of different designs costing around £45 each. 
Not such a big spender? Get 20% off with my code:

2. CREATE YOUR OWN BEAUTY HAMPER.

Treat your bestie to her all time faves and put them in a cute box. 
Simple yet highly effective!
Boots have got a buy one get one 1/2 price deal on the Real Techniques range RN!





3. PERSONALISED CUTENESS.

Who doesn't love the thoughtfulness that goes into personalised gifts!?
Lavish your giftee with a beautiful personalised necklace from Goldlust LDN. 
I personally love this rose gold simple piece of jewellery - it goes with everything.




4. SASSY STATIONARY.

I'm a sucker for pretty stationary, if you've got a friend who likes to stay organised in style, then this is the gift option for you. A Gift From The Gods does what is says on the tin. These pretty notepads, makeup bag and weekly organiser are the perfect addition to take any desk to pinterest worthy levels.




5. SOPHISTICATED SMELLIES.

Christmas isn't really Christmas if you didn't receive some perfume is it?
I'm pretty sure it was a fundamental aspect of growing up female. We all try our best to hold out for Christmas for the obligatory perfume from Uncle Steve who isn't really your uncle. 
Treat your babe with some fantastically good value perfume with instagrammable packaging as a bonus! My faves right now are Babe Power by Misguided and Dream by Ghost Fragrances.




6. MIRROR, MIRROR FREESTANDING RATHER THAN ON THE WALL?

Okay, maybe not quite so catchy but the copper/rose gold finish is definitely eye catching. 
I love the classic shape of this mirror and the fact you can use the optional in built light to apply your makeup in dark settings or just give yourself the best selfie lighting ever - YAAAS. 
This fabulous little saviour is only £19.99!





7. FASHUN BOOKS - EMPHASIS ON THE HUN.

What better way to confirm that you are fashionable and most definitely on trend than with an instgramable fashion book flatlay? No but seriously these make the prettiest furnishings and if you opt for the right literature, a bloody good read. 
Highly recommend the above but if you're after something a little more artsy then Nasty Galaxy is deffo for you. 



I HOPE THIS GUIDE HELPS YOU WITH YOUR FESTIVITIES!
MERRY CHRISTMAS LOVELIES XO
