Drawing a blank on what to buy your most fashionable friends for Christmas? Hopefully, these ideas for stylish gifts will inspire …

Two items for the price of one, and for just €35? This is a gorgeous gift for any fashion-conscious friend. The embellished brooch is detachable from the black leather belt so can be attached to glam up a simple black dress or removed?when you prefer?the simplicity of the?belt on its own.

Leather brooch belt, €35 at uterque.com

I absolutely love the simple aesthetic of this pendant necklace. The texture of the concrete disc really appeals to me and I like how the fineness of the chain acts as a counterpoint to the “weight” of the concrete. An ideal gift for lovers of good design.

Concrete disc necklace, €25 at Cos

Slogan T-shirts have been a big trend this season and they’ll continue to be for SS17. I’ve never been a huge fan but I’m very drawn to this understated and life-affirming version. Also, online retailer Reformation uses only sustainable methods and materials, so you’ll be giving on more than one level.

No Regrets white T-shirt, €52 at thereformation.com

I’d be very happy to receive this T-shirt under my Christmas tree. A simple but graphic print injects a basic shape with a bit of pizazz.

Sparkle print blouse, €55 at & Other Stories

Don’t underestimate the impact of gifting a great scarf, especially when it has the luxuriousness of this super-soft, extra-long version from Zara. I can never receive too many. Oversized scarfs make really stylish gifts because they add an effortless finesse to the simplest of outfits.

Soft knit scarf, €19.95 at Zara

Call it nostalgia, but who doesn’t love to have new pyjamas at Christmas time? This shorts and T-shirt set look so comfortable. Wear to bed or simply lounging around the house. Just add cashmere socks.

Striped pyjama set, €29 at Topshop

I love the delicacy of these gorgeous drop earrings – they look barely there.?Perfect for anyone?who likes to make a more subdued statement, they’ll make’someone very happy on Christmas Day.

Gold-plated earrings, Chan Luu, €53 at net-a-porter.com

Cashmere is always a great gift idea. There’s nothing like pulling a toasty cashmere knit over your ears when it’s cold outside. I’d trade five woolen hats for one cashmere any day.
