This was supposed to be a Christmas gift guide but, like a lot of things this year, it hasn’t really gone to plan.
I cannot give you details of the best toy to buy for a five-year-old nor the best game for a family to play on Christmas Day after stuffing themselves with turkey, sprouts, and – now you mention it – stuffing.
But I can solve two Christmas gift problems for you – the first is what to buy for a Secret Santa present and the other is what to get your girlfriend or boyfriend if you want to buy jewellery but aren’t at the stage of your relationship where you want to spend big bucks on a diamond tiara.
Yes, it’s a shop but it’s online on TikTok, and eBay. It’s the future of shopping if you’re in the market for high-end-looking but low-price-being jewellery. (And I assume you are because you’re still reading.)
The prices start at £2.99, with the top price being £14.99 for a faux diamond and silver necklace set.
That’s cheaper than chips (where I live a small portion of chips costs £3.50) and its a much nicer present to open on Christmas Day.
I’ll probably never be able to explain to everyone what happened in the last few months which has led – so far (but I’m hoping to fill them up in the coming weeks) to my blogs being mostly empty spaces where words should be.
But everything that has happened has made me reconsider my life.
And part of reconsidering has turned me from someone who was a “I don’t wear jewellery apart from watches” person to a “I have two pieces from Fox person”.
I’m the proud owner of the Ingot geometric necklace and also the Kennedy cuff bracelet.
They are both unisex so would be ideal choices if you are buying for a boyfriend or a girlfriend – especially in the early stages of a relationship where you want something thoughtful but not too expensive, and something they can open in front of their grandparents.
For Secret Santa I’d recommend you pay attention to what jewellery your person already wears and then get them a cooler version of that from Fox.
What I mean by that is don’t buy them earrings if they don’t have pierced ears.
What I mean by that is don’t buy them jewellery in silver if they usually only wear gold.
What I mean by that is buy them a drip ring.
If, like me, you didn’t have any clue about what a drip ring is before seeing the Fox shop then it will make you seem like you know a lot about fashion and jewellery.
If, unlike me, you did know what a drip ring was before seeing the Fox shop then hopefully you will agree that there are some really special designs available on the site.
If I ever have a girlfriend I’m going to buy her a drip ring from Fox.
For now though I’m just going to wish you a happy time Christmas shopping – online in your warm home, rather than on the mean streets of town where everyone walks slowly and no-one seems to know what they want to get.
Stay safe for another week!
