1. River Island sequinned top £28
This is the sort of top you can go all out in for Christmas – get super dressed up (a pair of leather trousers or a leather mini, crazy party heels, diamante earrings and lipstick) or something you could tone down (Wide leg jeans, platforms and a blazer) but at £28 is a steal.
A classic, can’t go wrong with it, kinda gift. 100% leather and very neat so it will fit inside even the smallest of bags. Looks way more expensive than it is.
Cashmere socks that come in a whopping 15 shades (our favourites are the dark beige & hot pink.) They keep your feet warm but are also breathable (which means no sweaty feet!)
4. Amazon gold party heels £35
We don’t tend to share dupes over here but these were too good to not tell you about. Inspired by Loeffler Randal, these gold party heels are super comfy, true to size and because of the low block heel, you could easily last all night in them.
They come in 9 colours, including a soft white which would make for perfect wedding shoes.
5. Marks & Spencer embellished hoodie £35
For someone who likes a little bit of something extra, but subtle. These hoodies come in sizes 6-24, size up for a slouchy style.
A great stocking filler, or gift for the Christmas table for your female guests. It comes in colours and can be worn on any hair length
7. Pine & Treasure, prices from £18

8. Arket Merino blend beanie £35
Weren’t you always taught that if your head (and feet) are warm then you’ll be warm?! These cute ribbed beanie hats come in 14 colours – my favourites are the dusty green and red. Keep them shoved in your coat pocket so that you are prepared at all times. A great stocking filler.
9. Susan Caplan vintage hoop & pearl earrings £48
Even if this wasn’t Gemma’s mums brand, these earrings would still make the list! You can wear them as classic hoops, or loop the pearls in so they are dangly. An absolute steal for effectively 2 pairs of beautiful vintage earrings.
10. Uniqlo charity T Shirt £14.90
This t-shirt is part of an ongoing collaboration with Uniqlo, and each t-shirt is designed by different leaders from the art, science, sport and literature. 100% of the profits are split between charities that help those affected by poverty, violence and conflict.
The sizing is mens, so go for one or 2 sizes smaller to get the womens size.
