Christmas Gift Guide: Ace Accessories


Still on the hunt for some Christmas presents? Here's another gift guide to give you some ideas, and this time it's all about jewellery and accessories. Necklaces are my favourite type of jewellery so I've always got my eye on a few statement ones to add to my collection, and I think these three would all make great Christmas presents. First up, for someone who loves bright, fun and quirky jewellery you can't go wrong with this Watermelon Necklace. I first spotted it in Hannah Zakari during the summer and have regretted not buying it ever since! For something a bit more minimal, but still bold and a bit different, I love the Dodecahedron Coated Collar Necklace from Oliver Bonas, which is available in three different colours. Alternatively, if you're looking for something a little more classic but with a personal touch, opt for something with your giftee's starsign on it, like this lovely Zodiac Constellation Necklace by Yvonne Henderson.

I already have a couple of bits and pieces from Kate Rowland and I really love them. Perfect for fans of pop culture and cult TV shows, her handmade wooden jewellery would make a great Christmas gift; try this RV Brooch for a fan of Breaking Bad. Speaking of handmade jewellery, I'm a big fan of the minimal style of the pieces from Oh My Clumsy Heart and definitely wouldn't mind unwrapping one of these little Moon Rings on Christmas morning. If you're looking for a watch rather than jewellery, Olivia Burton is a great place to look for dainty and unusual styles. This Mini Dial Mint & Gold Watch is very pretty indeed and it doesn't break the bank either.

Now, on to some other accessories. Scarves are always appreciated as Christmas gifts to keep cosy during the festive season, so something like this Houndstooth Print Blanket Scarf from Marks & Spencer would be perfect. I have a similar one from Primark and it's super super cosy. It might not be very sunny at the moment, but a nice pair of sunglasses would be still be a nice treat to receive, and I can't recommend Iolla's Muir Sunglasses enough. They're so well made and look very swish, but they're very affordable too - plus they do fantastic regular glasses if your giftee is in need of some new frames. Is it weird to give someone a pair of shoes as a Christmas present? I'm not sure, but I certainly would love to receive these Black Glitter Ankle Boots from New Look this Christmas. If you can't have ridiculous glitter shoes at Christmas, then when can you?! Lastly, a couple of more practical accessories; a pretty metallic Darya Colour Block Leather Purse from Oliver Bonas and Rifle Paper Co's Clear Rosa iPhone Cover. I reeaaaallly want one of these, but sadly I don't think they make them for Samsung phones, SIGH.

Have you got any jewellery or accessories on your Christmas list this year?
