ad gifted | Well, it’s here again! No, I can’t believe it and yes, it does come around quicker every single year. But hey, it’s CHRISTMAS! I’m excited and I hope you are too! I didn’t do a Christmas gift guide last year, so it’s been nice to do one again this year. I have a ton of fab products of ALL kinds to share with you.
Honing back to my old gift guides, there’s no rhyme or reason to this one, just a collection of great products I think would make nice gifts, with suggestions on the type of people they would be good for.
From jewellery to handbags, experience gifts to technology, there’s bound to be something in here for everyone. So if you need a bit of Christmas gift inspiration, here it is!
La Parisienne Ruffle Handbag – Kitten D’Amour
Perfect for: The fashion or vintage lover
If you’re looking for a really special gift for someone who you know loves fashion, handbags or Vintage styling, then Kitten D’Amour is the perfect place for you. They sell all manner of beautiful clothing and accessories in the distinctive Vintage style. Think cinched-in waists, beautiful necklines and lace.
They do have some more understated pieces – like their stunning La Parisienne Ruffle Bag – but with a subtle hint of Vintage essence to it. This bag is such excellent quality. It’s thick, sturdy and roomy with plenty of beautiful Kitten D’Amour detailing. And considering the quality, I think it’s exceptionally reasonably priced too!
Recycled Guitar Strap – Cycle of Good
Perfect for: The musician or eco-warrior
Cycle of Good are an incredible imitative that currently employs 33 Malawian tailors full time to earn a good wage and support their families, without any charity donations or handouts. They do all of this by saving waste from landfill and re-purposing it into useful items that will last a lifetime.
This recycled guitar strap is made from recycled bicycle inner tubes and lined with recycled lorry-curtain-siding and is available in orange, red or blue. But they have a range of other recycled items, such as bags, wallets and tech cases, all of which would make great gift ideas. You can get 20% off by using code JENNY20 at the checkout.

Price: From £10.99
As a book lover, books are ALWAYS in my list of things I want for Christmas. Books always make excellent gifts because there’s literally something for everyone, whether that’s Fiction or Non-Fiction!
A few books I’ve been sent recently – as pictured above – which could be considered for gifts are Mirror Mirror by David Allott, The Secrets of Life by SS O’Connor (all four books available on Amazon – a great series perfect for anyone who’s fascinated with, well, life!) and political Thriller The Orpheus Project by Dr Valerie Sinason.

It might be Winter right now but Summer will roll around quicker than we think and before long, we’ll be digging our sunnies out for those long drives and Summer days in 2024!
