Christmas gift guide

This year I am genuinely confused as to which way to go with Christmas colours, materials and interiors in general. I have a love for all things old and natural, but am also loving the contrast of the slightly tacky sparkly stuff. Therefore I have handpicked my absolute favourites from a variety of suppliers, which will hopefully help you to decide if you are having a simular dilema to me! I have decided to go for a mixture, although I do like themes, I think the contrast between different styles is always exciting and alot more interesting and challenging.

These pine cones are super cute on their red ribbons, you could probably make them but they are very cheap I think.
