For some reason, nearly every person I know or am related to seems to have been born in the month of October. It leaves me stuck with the challenge of trying to buy truly unique presents for each of them (three are close friends with birthdays within days of each other). Obviously, I try to buy good presents that suit each of them but I end up stressing out and leaving it too late resulting in a slightly random array of gifts. This year, I have given it some careful thought and have decided that accessories (my first love) make the perfect present for almost anybody!
One of my close friends is literally one of those people who has everything. She shops regularly, has a very particular style and isn't too hot on jewellery. But, then I came up with the inspired idea of buying her a vintage scarf! There are hundreds of stores across Londonwhere you can pick out such gifts, I also love the Celia Birtwell for Topshop scarves.
A cute clutch is another great option. They're not too expensive and it seems unlikely that they'll already have it. Especially with the fast paced turn around on the High Street at the moment. How about this silver, square clutchfrom Warehouse? Or this chocolate clutch from Dorothy Perkins, for £10.
