Your Ultimate Christmas Gift List: the Independent Brand Edit

December 11, 2017

Take it from me, Christmas shopping doesn’t have to be a nightmare! When you choose to shop sustainably, it inevitably requires a lot more effort than simply popping down the high street to browse the gifts on offer. But while it can feel a little overwhelming to find authentic brands with gifts that are both beautiful and affordable, it can be done!

 

I’ve compiled a list of my favourite independent brands to give you some great gift inspiration. Each one is an investment piece designed to last a lifetime. Forget throwaway fashion and products that will be outdated or worn away by next Christmas. These gifts are here to stay…

 

The Slogan Sweater

 

London-based Ille De Cocos create pieces that are “beautifully simple yet unique” and I adore this slim-line slogan sweater. It’s made with super-soft light-grey marl and merino wool for a lightweight yet very cosy feel. Pair with a leather skirt and killer boots for evening chic or straight jeans for casual daywear. The bright coral detail adds a little something special to the aesthetic.

 

The Statement Necklace

 

Every lady needs (at least) one piece of statement jewellery that goes with every outfit. I love this Butterfly Necklace from jewellery and silversmith Sara Hartley. Made from 18-carat gold and flecked with diamonds, it exudes a timeless style and glamorous aesthetic. Ideal for mum, gran, or yourself!

 

The Investment Pumps

 

A pair of classic pumps go a long way but it’s also nice to add a bit of sparkle. House of Spring blend French chic with the vibrant energy of London to offer elegant, confident footwear that is crafted to perfection. I love these gold pumps made from super-soft black leather and decorated with gold glitter to make a dazzling statement.

 

The Everything Dress

 

This shapeshifting Odeon Dress from Japanese-inspired brand Kirei

 

 really is everything. A whimsical, bohemian design blends with gathered, ruffled and pleated details to offer a wonderful reimagining of the Little Black Dress. Midnight blue tones add a sophisticated touch to create an all-seasons dress that will look beautiful paired with boots or heels.

 

The Versatile Trousers

 

As part of P.I.C. Style’s much-talked about capsule wardrobe, the Dalston Peg Trousers are stylish, flattering and comfortable – I find that it’s often difficult to find a piece of clothing that ticks all these boxes! A high waist and peg leg style includes slant pockets, a zip fly front and a silver D-ring self-belt completes the picture. 

 

The Beach Capsule

 

When the darkness of winter becomes a little too much, it can be wonderful to gift your loved ones with something bright and sunny. The madebywave collections are inspired by tropical, exotic climates and a sense of insatiable wanderlust. Choose from a range of colourful sarongs inspired by the Indonesian islands, beach bags for global travels and clutch bags for everyday adventures. There's also a whole range of accessories for you to customise your gift to every recipient.
