#oneforyouoneforme gift guide

long tall sally christmas gift guide wish list winter 2015 pyjamas sweater boots blanket scarf bobble hat
That's the way to survive Christmas shopping, isn't it?  'Right, I'll buy cousin Marigold some lovely new slippers...and I might as well get myself some new pjs while I'm here.'  Here being Long Tall Sally of course, since I ain't fitting into pyjamas from any other store.  (Btw, I don't have a cousin Marigold, but I bet she'd be tons of fun if she actually existed.  She'd be as tall as me and twice as snarky, if such a thing is possible.)  That's right, it's time for the only wish list that matters this holiday season!

When Long Tall Sally asked me to come up with a gift guide showing what I'd buy all the best ladies in my life, I landed on a 'cosy' theme pretty quickly.  One look at my outfit posts and anyone could tell that's the word I build my wardrobe around.  Luckily, just about everyone I know is also this sensible, so they'd be super simple to shop for.

I'd stick with tradition and get my mum some fluffy check slippers, and for Tam's mum it would have to be a faux fur hooded gilet - perfect for dog walking on cold mornings.

My friend Aileen is into leather ankle boots and blanket scarves and I think she'd love these two.  I'd have to 'borrow' that scarf when she's not looking though...

My sister-in-law is the short one in the family, but I bet she wouldn't mind this chunky cable sweater being...well, a bit chunky.  Giant sweaters for the win!  It'd go perfectly with the faux fur trim gloves on a frosty day (of which we've had one, but no doubt more are just around the corner.  Sob.)

Lastly is my cousin, a typical trend-conscious teenager.  Surely she'd be happy with a fairisle style sweater or a bobble hat and matching chunky scarf with pompoms?  Coincidentally, I've just made her a near identical scarf in grey, so maybe I'm actually the trendy one?  (Haha!  I'm not.)

Oh look, there's two things left in my virtual basket!  The Secret Garden super soft robe and pyjama pants.  There's no one left to shop for, so I guess I better just pick these up for myself.  It's debatable whether I'd need another robe and pjs set but you can never have enough of those, right?

What's everyone wishing for this Christmas?  Is your shopping method as clever as mine?
