It might feel a little too early to be thinking about Christmas but, with only 5 weeks to go before the big day, it is definitely worth collecting your present ideas now. I always kick off Christmas buying with presents for my family. They are the people that you know best in the world so how is it you often find yourself scratching your head over what to buy for mums, dads, daughters and sisters? Here, I’ve put together some failsafe ideas that will help you find the perfect gifts for your nearest and dearest this Christmas.
Buying for a teenage girl, be they your daughter, niece or sister can be pretty daunting. Look like you have your finger on the fashion pulse by giving a pair of Henry Holland Pearly Suspender Tights which were recently pictured in Look magazine. In fact, your teenager will be impressed with any of the tights from the House of Holland for Pretty Polly range. Being worn by Rihanna and Jessie J has confirmed their über cool status so you can’t go wrong. Alternatively, if your teenager enjoys the musical stylings of Cheryl Cole, Pamela Mann’s Straparound Tights and Jonathan Aston’s Casino Tights are a very close copy of the tights she wore for some of her recent performances.
Gifts for your Mum
Your mum will probably say she likes whatever you buy but it would take a superhuman effort not to fall in love with Pantherella’s cashmere socks. The exceptionally high cashmere content makes Pantherella socks so soft and luxurious your mum will be dying to slip them on and put her feet up. Our favourites are the Pantherella Women’s Cashmere Rib Ankle Socks which come in a gorgeous range of colours.
For mums we would also recommend checking out the Mary Portas and Charnos range for their super fashionable but restrained styles. The Mary Portas and Charnos Sheer Spot Tights for example are right on trend but in a classic wearable style that looks great on everyone. If you know your mum, like so many other women, is self conscious about her upper arms treat her to Mary Portas Armery. Available in classic plain and glamorous lace, the fact that Armery has been flying off the MyTights.com shelves is proof that this brand new product is what women have been crying out for. Your mum will love them.
Gifts for your Dad
You might think you are playing it safe by buying your dad socks for Christmas but it needn’t be a boring option. Burlington’s colourful patterned Norfolk Men’s Socks are great for casual days but they also add a great dash of colour under a work suit (It’s also worth noting that, if you are buying for a dandyish younger brother or cousin, the sporty look of Burlington’s Dorset Men’s Socks is ultra fashionable right now). Falke Silk Men’s Socks will give a little Bond-esque polish and represent a bit of simple luxury he would never think to buy for himself.
