I don’t know about you, but apparently I’m the hardest kind of person to shop for and I’m not alone. Buying Christmas presents for people who constantly shop can be tricky at the best of times. We know what we like and what we like can be, let’s just say, unique and at times expensive. So the age old question is, what do you get for the  girl who has everything? Slip this in front of your loves one and hopefully I can help a sista out, while keeping it local, naturally.

 Bonnie Bling

Pretty much your one stop Christmas shop, Bonnie Bling is your savour from stocking fillers to the main event. With Scottish slants and custom cuties available, you can create something truly special for the perfectly picky person in your life.

  Sara Sboul

For the one who loves independent design and quirky accessories, my collab collection with Sara Sboul would have anyone squealing after finding under the tree! The little Bitch bag has to be one of my favourites! Don’t be fooled by its size, it would leave Mary Poppins jealous.

Waking up with Venus 

If you know that your girl loves lingerie, you can’t get more special than a handmade bralette from Waking up with Venus. These delecates are anything but unmentionable and are made to measure especially for your boo.

    Pip Jolley 

If vintage style, big hair and cute jewellery is your girls bag then look no further than Pip Jolley. Ranging from the finest rose golds to affordable powder coating, her jewellery will brighten up anyone’s Christmas morning. Especially this limited edition Orange Roller Necklace!


For the folks who have it all – including a big heart – theres Kochiba. Designed in Scotland and made from wood, these timepieces are more than just wrist candy. With each one purchased a donation is made to the charity Woman Kind keeping up with Christmas Spirit in style.

Doodad and Fandango

Designed by the Sasspot that is Nikita Margarita, these pop art accessories have been on my want list for some time. Creating fastly iconic designs from Campbell’s soup, smoking granny’s and just plain old fabulous faces, a piece from her will make you her new favourite person. I’m a brooch kind of girl #justsayin.


It wouldn’t be a gift guide from me without featuring my most used accessory in my wardrobe, a Chouchou hood. If you are looking for something that you know will be loved and used over and over, this is the purchase for you.

  Karen Mabon

If there’s one thing that’s hard to find, it’s a girl who doesn’t love a good scarf and Karen has got to be one of my favourites. From dressed up dogs, derpy cats and teenage dream bedrooms, this has got every pop culture loving babes name written all over it.

  Sara Hill

You don’t need to know a sista’s shade to be able to buy her some war paint! Glasgow  #GirlBoss Sara Hill has created an incredible collection of glitter pots, lipsticks (Marilyn above is fast becoming my signature shade) and rouges fit for any Queen. What’s more, it’s cruelty free and tested on Grannies.

  Luna on the Moon

There should be a saying set in stone that reads: When all else fails, buy Luna on the Moon. One of these sparkly numbers has made their way to me for every birthday and Christmas since finding her on Instagram a few years back. My love for her has only grew stronger. Why not even splash out on a custom piece to commemorate your favourite ‘in’ joke? She’ll be one lucky lady!

Hope I have helped fill a few stockings! Stay tuned for my recommendations for those oh so hard to buy for boys!

forever yours betty

  1. Hey had a look at the Doodad and Fandango site, looks like its Australian eh? Just wondering if you know of any stockists here cause you mentioned keeping it local with these gift ideas?

  2. I’m pretty sure that Godiva in Edinburgh had some but custom has to come from the source. Shes not local but too good to not sneak in! X
