My wish list: Christmas list 2014

Everyone around me is an a panic, clutching lists of gifts that they still need to buy. I am feeling remarkably calm and zen about the whole thing, feeling very smugly organised.

If you're still looking for ideas for someone this year who is female, with excellent taste (sure), then here's what's on my wish list in case it's of any help.

{my wish list: Christmas 2014}

Top row, left to right
+ REN Vita Mineral Omega 3 Optimum Skin Serum Oil, £23 John Lewis - because everyone's skin needs a little extra something this time of year
+ Red leather Finkle Street handbag, £165 Blanket Row - handmade in the UK, and to replace a much loved similar version which I got wet paint on, and then tried to get it off with nail varnish remover (NEVER do this) so all the dye came off. I blame Popeye - that was his bright idea
+ Blue & black check city coat, £139 Planet - I know! Planet! Who knew? And read that fabric content and rejoice (so much wool!)
+ Cashmere round neck sweater, £49.90 Uniqlo - a classic you'll wear for years
+ Broad brass cuff, £39 & Other Stories - a little She-Ra chic for those who idolised her in your youth

Middle row, left to right
+ Marin ring by Gorjana, £44.98 Shopbop - my gold ring obsession continues
+ Superga 2750s in white leather, £55 Office - to take you right through from winter to summer (in winter I'll wear them with the sheepskin insoles from my stocking filler list)
+ Cecily charcoal grey suede boots, £135 Atterley Road - perfect flat heel and just the right length on the ankle
+ Metal mashup pearl necklace, £39.50 Banana Republic - am thinking this will work a treat with the cashmere crew neck
+ Knit your own Vivienne cardigan, £85 Wool And The Gang - no, not for me to knit silly, I'd ask my mum to do it (hi mum)

Bottom row, left to right
+ Anglepoise Type 75 lamp, £120 John Lewis - because I've loved these lamps since forever
+ Meridien red jersey top, £55 Saint James from Atterley Road - because you can never have enough stripes
+ Triangles cotton bedspread, £59.99 Zara Home - I couldn't resist the colour
+ Santal 26 candle, £47 Liberty - eugh, an insane amount of money to spend on a candle, but I like it so much, and well, this is a WISH list
+ Piped flannel pyjama, £75 Toast - flannel for warmth, in such a great colour
