FOR MY DAD: Brown Scott Brushed Shirt
A quality piece that guarantees excellent production ethics and longevity. My dad will appreciate both of those facts.
A brilliant nod to contemporary design in yet another great designer collaboration from People Tree. I like to collect these collaborations!
FOR MY SISTER: Zakee Shariff Shooting Star V Neck Dress
I think People Tree produces great dresses, particularly of this shape. Perfect for the party season! My sister has a party for all her neighbours over Christmas and she’d love the cut and colour of this. It’s festive but not too over the top. It’s great to have a Christmas piece that works all winter – ‘more mileage per dress’ that’s my motto!
FOR MY MUM: Cream Alice Fairisle Cardigan
Classic design – always works! A winter basic.
FOR MY MOTHER-IN-LAW: Taja Drop Earrings
My mother-in-law, Linda, loves jewellery and art deco influence and I’m sold on the smokey glass in these. Subtle and elegant.
FOR ME: Black Dove Shirt Dress
This is going on my Christmas wishlist! Easy to wear, classic and a really cute, subtle print.
