Sorry to all you scrouges out there who think it’s too soon, but for me, as soon as October hits my Christmas thinking cap goes on and I become an elf. I know that all the adverts say that the best part of Christmas is giving gifts rather than receiving, but I really do agree! I love shopping for the perfect gift, getting people something they wouldn’t expect and generally raising a smile 🙂

That being said, who doesn’t LOVE receiving gifts too? And there are so many gems out there! I’ve been cultivating my extensive Christmas list for some months now. Firstly because I’m broke and can’t afford nice things and also because I’ve found so many lovely treats while I’ve been hunting for gifts for others.

While you may not care to know what’s on my Christmas list as you’re not shopping for me this year (rude), I thought I would post all my wishes on here. One, for my family to draw inspo, and two, to inspire those of you shopping for friends and sisters who are totally stumped for ideas!

Now, Santa, I would like one of each of the below pretty please!…

Clutching the Envelope

With the wintry seasons approaching and the cold setting in, it’s all going to be deep colours with dark leather and furs.  So why not add a little light to your wardrobe with a pastel envelope bag.  Perfect for day time or evening, these bags are lightweight and trendy and will break up all the wool and knit with a pop of creamy colour.   I love all the creams, ivories, muted pinks and (God forbid!) beiges on offer this season.  Here are a few of my favourites at the moment…

1.  Metal Corner Envelope Clutch Bag – £18 – ASOS.  2. Ted Baker Elder Studded Envelope Clutch Handbag – £89 – John Lewis.  3. Grey Pastel Envelope Clutch – £15.99 –  New Look.  4. ‘It’s time to start living the life you have always imagined’ Envelope Bag – £50 – ISWAI.  5. Johnny Loves Rosie Envelope Clutch Bag – £38 – ASOS.  6. Beige Asymmetric Zip Clutch Bag – £18 – River Island.  7. ‘You were all I could think about today’ Envelope Bag – £50 – ISWAI.  8. Faux Leather Diamante Skull Envelope Clutch Bag – £16.99 – Amazon.  9. Brown Geometric Panel Clutch Bag – £28 – River Island.  10. Faux Snake Front Clutch – £22 – Miss Selfridge.

Now wrap up warm and go open up to the cold when the postie brings one of these lovelies to your door.  Be warned, you might be enticed to step out into the really very brisk and chilly air to show it off!
