Where do you do your Christmas shopping? Last minute or months ahead, what’s your stamping ground. Mine, for years now, has been north and east London and most recently one of my favourite streets with one of my favourite boutiques, Modern Society …
[ezcol_1half]Redchurch Street in Shoreditch has evolved into quite a busy little shopping street (too much so for some, perhaps) but for resolute shoppers like myself, just perfect! When I popped into Modern Society last week to put together a little gift guide edit I was delighted to hear that, with Modern Society hearalding the way, Redchurch Street will be doing a week long Christmas shopping event on the street! Feeling festive already :)[/ezcol_1half] [ezcol_1half_end]With lights, music and lots of shopper treats, the first week of December – I can’t wait! In the meantime, here is my edit of the some of the gorgeous and most giveable gifts (these all under £100) currently in store. I’ve stayed away from clothes and jewellery as these are often quite difficult to pick for people unless they’ve requested something specific and focussed more on the the can’t-go-wrong type of gifts, mainly for the females, enjoy![/ezcol_1half_end]
Leather accessories chic and cute are such a lovely gift and I love the half moon shape of the eco-friendly Paperthinks coin pouch with detachable keyring. And just £18!
I think a beautiful teapot really is one of the most perfect gifts as it’s something that will get used and will be kept forever. Love the shape, colour and texture of this Hasami Porcelain design. £90
Modern Society’s own collection of candles recently launched. A slightly higher perfume content than most, the scent perfumes longer. I carry mine – No. 3 made of up apple, rose, Lily of the Valley, tobacco & caramel – around the house with me, even unlit! Because it just the best thing I ever smelt. Ever. £50
Coffee table books are always a winner, and when the photography and images are droolworthy as those in Cabin Porn. One of those books to fuel dreams and plans! £20
The baby alpaca Peruvian yarm and merino wool mix Karakoram mittens are really something else! The softest bobbly texture to keep hands warm. £65
