kooky Christmas Gift Guide.

Harvey Nichols Christmas window was unveiled while I was in Manchester the other day. I loved the snowman side of it, pom pom letters, and the overall sense of good fun. Check out the bauble headed mannequins- so crazy and kooky. It took me about 15 mins of squinting and confusion to realise the tinsel side of the window read.. 'deck the halls'...maybe over tired from too much shopping. muhaa haha.
Selfridges had gone down a goofy path too...opting to adorn Mulberry, Marc Jacobs & Ysl bags, Cambridge satchels, shoes and all other gifts with googley eyes... check out the plastic dinner in the first photo- completely cracked me up!
 (Urban Outfitters for- metal letters, cake pop book, clocks & skull money bank, Marks & Spencers whoopee cushion and... robot memory sticks which are AMAZINGGGGG! must. get one.)

With Christmas approaching quicker than we realise I thought it was a good idea to make an early start and hunt down some of the coolest and quirkiest items available. Most of which are definately affordable, and certain to raise a few smiles, laughs and result in some happy family and friends...
Other online destinations worth a visit for alternative gifts.
If there are other places you recommend for out of the ordinary presents , please share!
I will be posting a chic gift guide at some point too. Katie.x
