8 Stylish Gifts For Less Than ?55

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
