It’s such a busy time of year for everyone, me included! From getting everything organised for Christmas, to all the festivities like Christmas plays and visiting Father Christmas to buying gifts and decorating the house. Well hopefully I can give you a helping hand today with some gift ideas from our affiliates Etsy.

Today I am going to begin with Christmas gift ideas for her, whoever she may be in your life, or why not, it could just be a treat for you! I am going to look at homeware, fashion, stocking fillers and office Christmas present ideas. YAY! Your creative, indie Christmas, here you come.
