You know that one girl that HATES bath bombs, eye shadow pallets, unicorns and literally anything pink and sparkly?! Yep, well that’s me! I cannot think of anything worse than receiving a bundle of girly glittery gifts, and surely I’m not alone? So I’ve decided to pull together a lil gift guide for the slightly less sparkly inclined of us…
For my birthday my best friend got me the best lil selection of gifts that showed exactly how well she knew me! Including a pineapple plant?! I mean who knew they were a thing… A cute must have bag, with matching nail polish, socks and my fave sweets, obvs!
The lil gift collection just got me thinking how hard it sometimes is to find the perfect gift, and how bloody well she’d done!
You don’t always have to break the bank to bag a gift worth bragging about! So, here we go, a list of *slightly* less basic gift ideas than bath bombs…
A Novel Idea
Who doesn’t love a good book?! Well, nobody loves a good, aesthetically pleasing book more than the edgy rule breaker who boasts an ever-growing, controversial stack of coffee table books. Sound familiar? Here’s a few of my absolute faves…
For the Insta QUEEN
For the Aesthetically Ambitious
I’m not a huge Florence Welch fan, but there’s just something about this book that makes me want it out on display…hipster ’til I die.
For the Mid-Twenties Lost Souls
For the Tumblr die-hard
I’m a tumblr girl at heart, so I’ve wanted this book for YEARS…
There’s some AMAZING boots around at the moment and you can never have too many pairs, especially with all the sales that are on right now, not to mention the 47 different types of animal print that are BANG on trend!
There’s no better gift than a good pair of boots, so here’s a few of my absolute FAVES, and hopefully they’re something your edgy pal might love too!
The Best Bag
Who doesn’t love a good Paris Hilton style baby bag nowadays?! Grab your edgy pal a must have mini tote bag & you’ll be sure to make their day…
The Pandy Pin Topshop bag is an absolute classic, so if the other styles look a little TOO bold, then play it safe & go for a LBB (lil black bag, duh!).
Perfect Plants & Pots
Every millennial needs a house full of plants, it’s like the hidden rule of our generation! What better gift for a plant lover, than a new baby to add to their collection?!
Monki plant pots are super cute & make the ideal gift, while Urban Outfitters home-ware section is literally a plant gifting heaven.
Edgy Extra Decor
What better than a lil home update to say ‘I just get you’? Monki, Urban Outfitters & The Range are forever my favourite home-wear haunts, or if you’re Manchester based, Okla Homa is an absolute DREAM!
Polaroid Camera & Co
Every edgy gal loves a good Polaroid, and there’s SO many lil Polaroid accessories about at the mo, it’d be silly to miss out! There’s millions of cute frame options in Topshop, Urban Outfitters, New Look and almost every other high street store!
Or if you want something a lil bigger, the above is only £3.99 from The Range…thank me later!
Are they beyond the baker boy cap? Better than the beret? Keep up with the latest hair wear trends and bag them a cute set of clips or a funky headband. I’ve spotted an array of amazing accessories in high street stores recently, so go get gifting!
I feel like as I’ve gone on, this has slowly turned from a gift guide, into a wish list…oops! But I hope my lil gift guide attempt has given you a bit of festive inspo for your bestie, sister or even edgy Mum and I’ve not just bored you with my own Christmas wishes!
