As lovely as personalised items are – and truly they are – it’s sometimes not an option when last-minute Christmas gift buying; Especially for the disorganised, time poor or spinning plates mamas amongst us.
Therefore, I am championing the humble initial gift. Making ‘personalised’ gift buying a whole lot quicker and easier this Christmas. Letter collections are appearing all over the high street some of the best ranges I have seen are in Marks & Spencer (candles, cushions, mugs and door hooks), Next (doormats, wash bags, cushions and bath towels), Anthropologie (necklaces, mugs, coasters and pouches) and Oliver Bonas (pencil case, travel card holders and wire ornaments).To inspire you further step forward my Alphabet Chart of the best single letter gifts to make shopping this festive season as easy as…ABC!
