How to shop for clothing gifts successfully

*Collaborative post.

I love buying and receiving clothing as a present but buying clothing for others can be very tricky. It can be hard to get the right size and design. But once you know the clothing size and the taste of the recipient, you should be able to successful buy clothing as a present. When shopping for clothing gifts, you need to aim to get it right first time and include gift receipts just incase you don’t.


How to shop for clothing gifts successfully

To shop for clothing gifts successfully, you need to have a close relationship with the recipient. Buying clothing as gifts for kids is very easy but it can become a chore when it comes to adults, especially adults you don’t really know. I like buying loose fitted pieces when I am not sure of the exact size, or I just go down the accessory route – so scarves. Another way to go about this is to shop for outerwear so coats, jackets, blazers, and so on. These are easier to buy if the sizes are grouped in small, medium, large and extra-large, as you can likely guess which group the recipient will fall into.

If you are on the hunt for clothing gifts, you may find these pieces very helpful.

If you are after a gift idea for a lovely man in your life, then you need to check out Orvis Men’s Clothing. The brand stocks some amazing quality menswear, and this lovely coat is one of them. I love this Orvis Classic Barn Coat a lot. The garment washed classic look is beauty. I think it is a great gift idea for a special man in your life. What I like most about this coat is the pure cotton corduroy collar and cuff lining. It makes the coat stand out even more.

You can get this coat in this tobacco shade, or barn red and olive.


Barbour Women’s Zip Knit Sweater £119

I would love to receive this Barbour Women’s Zip Knit Sweater as a present. I love the simplicity of the knit sweater. It looks like a quality piece of clothing that it is – 100% lambswool zip-front jumper. I also like the diamond quilted polyamide which helps with both durability and warmth

It can work as a jacket on a warmer day, and can be worn underneath a coat on a chilly day.


Orvis Pansy Print Scarf £29

This Orvis Pansy Print Scarf is another great gift idea for women. It would work well as a little Mother’s Day gift this year. I love the beautiful pansy print. It can be worn as a scarf or as a wrap, and I think it is such a bold statement accessory. The light price tag also makes it a budget friendly gift idea. What do you think?

January Wishlist

If you follow me on Instagram, you would have noticed my posting birthday shots yesterday. It was my birthday yesterday. I am officially 31 years old and it feels amazing. Apart from me being down with an annoying cold all weekend, I had a great time. Every new year is worth celebrating and I am grateful to have the opportunity to so. I will be sharing more on my birthday later this week. So look out for a birthday outfit post soon. January is one of my favourite months of the year because it is my birth month and it introduces a fresh start to a year. Which is why I am always on high in January.

Say hello to my January Wishlist post, the first Wishlist post of the year! I have a few items I would love to get this month, and I would grab every one of them if I had an unlimited budget. But since I don’t have an unlimited budget, I can only wish to grab all these this month.

Hear a few at the top of my list this January.


Barbour Telescopic Umbrella Navy/Classic Tartan £65

I don’t have a decent umbrella and I find it so embarrassing at times. This Barbour Telescopic Umbrella Navy/Classic Tartan for £65 would be so useful. I like the classic design of the umbrella. It is crafted from 100% polyester yarn dyed classic Barbour tartan. This umbrella features an engraved wooden handle with a metal mechanism. It ticks all the boxes for me.

You can grab this stunning umbrella on Terraces Menswear website. What do you think of this umbrella?


KT Deco Black Oak Carcase Graphite Woodgrain Fronts 3 Drawer Large Chest Of Drawers £235.50 £157


January Wishlist image

I am badly in need of a few chest of drawers. There are a couple that need replacing. I came across this great website – Dandelion Interiors, and I found some many affordable household decor items. This KT Deco Black Oak Carcase Graphite Woodgrain 3 Large Chest Of Drawers being one of them.

This chest of drawers is designed to introduce comfort and character to any bedroom. It would suit my bedroom so well, with the beautifully co-ordinated woodgrain fronts and matching foil carcase. It offers a touch of modern class to the bedroom and will complement my existing décor, which is amazing. Do you like this chest of drawers? Please share your thoughts.



Mercedes Benz Image


I am still in the process of sorting out my driving license. It looks like that would be sorted out for good this year, and I am looking forward to getting a new sleek car. We currently have a Range Rover, so I would ideally want a different type of car. I love my Mini Coopers and I am seriously crushing on some of the Mercedes-Benz models I have spotted as well. It is such a cool car brand. Do you agree?

There are so are so many cool options and deals available with companies like Yes Lease. This company is one of the UK leading car leasing broker, and they are known for their very low prices, great customer service and non salesy approach. So it is worth browsing their website (link above) for great car deals. I am seriously loving the deals available on their website.

What do you think of my January Wishlist? Are you wanting any of these items? How are you coping with the January Blues? Does it affect you at all? Please share your thoughts in the comments below. If you enjoyed reading this post, please share on your social media platforms.
