This is by far my favourite time of year... the lights, the get-togethers, the christmas jumpers and of course the gift buying! I take great care in selecting presents for my family and friends. The best gifts are always the ones that they would never think of buying for themselves.

I share this enthusiasm with my clients who come to me to recommend inspirational, original and must-have gifts. So to help you out I thought I would share my festive wish list of covetable gift ideas and what I'll be gifting this year. There is sure to be something for the hard-to-please in your life. 

For my husband - a stylish and functional bed-side alarm clock to stop him from using his phone as an alarm and prevent him from checking his emails in the bedroom when he should be relaxing! The kids will love these allen keys as much as he does and to welcome in the new year and to celebrate his new job, a beautiful Italian leather briefcase.

For my daughter - She's desperate to have her nails painted so I'll fill her stocking with Nailmatic's fun, kid-friendly nail polishes. She is fascinated by women with extraordinary powers so I will get her a Supergirl costume and I'll read to her about real life female super heroes from Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls.  

For my son - It can only be Star Wars so it will be T Shirts from Little Eleven Paris and little lego versions of his favourite characters. 

For me -  I share Gabi Aghion's (the founder of Chloe) love of letters and would love to put this around my neck on Christmas morning. I'd love to take this jumper on my ski holiday and dream of sunnier climates in this dress. I need to be hands free when I'm with the kids and when prepping for clients so a new backpack would be a dream come true. This leather tape measure is beautiful and endlessly practical. And there is nothing better than a good cup of tea and a beautiful book to relax with when the festivities get too much.

But if you still feel overwhelmed by finding a gift that exceeds their expectations, then I offer gift vouchers for all my services. The consultations are informative, fun and eye opening. But don't just take my word for it - read what my clients have to say about getting endless compliments, finding a renewed sense of confidence and finding a life they love. 

Merry Christmas!
