  1. I love that rose gold clock! Gutted they don’t have an online store as I’m no where near one :(

  2. That anchor bracelet is gorgeous- and an absolute bargain! I’ve sent the link to Santa xxx

  3. Love this! Some of the finds are amazing for under £5.

  4. Great list! The marshmallow is the perfect stocking filler for my lot, I’ve just ordered three lots. :-)

  5. Mello Mallo is a winner for me. Also love that rose gold clock. Might have to drop a few hints and see what santa brings :)
