The Cosy Christmas Gift Guide

Cold-weather heroes, night-in luxuries and faux fur on (almost) everything: welcome to the cosy Christmas gift guide at Accessorize. Discover our selection of carefully curated presents and stocking fillers for all your loved ones this festive season, guaranteed to spread that warm and fuzzy feeling far and wide.


1. Hats On


As the cold takes hold, a cosy beanie hat makes the perfect gift to give this Christmas. For something that feels festive but won’t feel out of place once the season is over, opt for a knitted number in a soft pastel hue, topped with a super-soft feather bobble for a playful touch.

2. Treats for Feet


Slippers = the fail-safe gift for lovers of all things cosy. Fur-lined pairs come in powdery pinks, cool greys and vibrant brights, lending a little extra luxe to winter nights spent by the fireside. When it comes to socks, novelty goes nice with fun, festive characters and soft, fluffy textures.

3. Faux Real


How to make cosy feel a little more chic? Go for faux fur. Designed with a snow leopard print, this sumptuously soft scarf and fluffy beret make an undeniably glamorous gift for the fashion-lover in your life. We like them worn together as well as styled separately.


4. Knit Picking


How to create the perfect cosy gifting bundle: take one poncho, add a pair of gloves and a matching hat (extra points if they’re embellished), and round it off with faux fur earmuffs. Winter wardrobe, complete.

5. All About Berets


Berets have made their comeback – and the festive season presents the optimum opportunity to tap into the trend. Made from pure wool, this classic French-girl accessory is artfully adorned with crystal gems for a flash of sparkle, making them a wonderful choice for Christmas Day and far beyond.

To Gabrielle, From Hannah


A beret is a staple of Gabrielle’s style, so it’s no surprise that this bejewelled offering went down extremely well when gifts were exchanged. With cold weather here to stay, her oversized scarf is the perfect pop of colour to go with it: soft, cosy and made to be noticed. To complete her present with a helping of glamour, Hannah chose Gabrielle a beaded bag and a luxe gold-plated ring from Z for Accessorize. And because it’s Christmas, our novelty headbands bring all the fun.

5 Birthday Gifts for Sagittarius

Re-emerge from the darkness – Sagittarius season (22nd November-21st December 2018) is upon us, inspiring us to explore, push boundaries and embrace our sense of adventure. Here, we delve into the inner workings of one the freest and fieriest signs on the zodiac wheel, and share the birthday gifts that the Sagittarius in your life is destined to love…


About the Sagittarius Sign


Ruled by Jupiter, the planet of growth and opportunity, the independent Sagittarius is driven by adventure and experience, and seeks enlightenment through new ideas, people and places. Optimistic, enthusiastic and inspiring, this fire sign possesses a positive and outgoing personality that makes them the life and soul of any party – and their energy is often contagious. Wise and philosophical, Sagittarius is full of knowledge and curiosity about the world, and is never one to shy away from sharing their opinions in deep, intellectual discussions. At times, they can come across a little too outspoken, blunt or reckless, although it’s important to remember that most of these behaviours are often inadvertent.


 1. The Constellation Necklace


Located in the centre of the Milky Way, Sagittarius is often represented as a centaur – a mythological half-man, half-horse – drawing a bow at the heart of Scorpius. Find the constellation depicted on our gold- and platinum-plated necklaces from Z for Accessorize, with cubic zirconia stones providing a touch of celestial sparkle.


2. The Sagittarius Rings


Whether you’re looking for jewellery to match or after an alternative to the above, these stacking rings make a beautiful birthday gift for Sagittarius. Plated in gold, this zodiac-inspired set features two designs: a sparkling constellation and a turquoise-effect stone embellishment. The latter is the birthstone for December and has been cited for its healing and protective powers.


3. The Sagittarius Bracelet


Set on coloured cord, this star sign bracelet features a sterling silver disc with the mythical centaur symbol – otherwise known as a glyph – which is said to represent Sagittarius’ optimistic outlook on life, as well as their ambitions to reach a higher spiritual ideal. A treasure-forever gift.


4. The Birthstone Necklace


Celebrating a birthday in December? Look no further than this birthstone necklace. It’s crafted from gold-tone metal and embellished with a sparkling blue crystal from Swarovski, emulating the colour of a turquoise. (You can find the birthstone necklace for November here).


5. The Sagittarius Keyring


Engraved with the constellation of the centaur, and embellished with tiny, twinkling stones, this gold-tone metal keyring makes a thoughtful gift for Sagittarius, encouraging them to keep exploring new horizons.

The rules went like this: first, both influencers asked each other a round of quick-fire questions and, with their newfound knowledge to hand, had up to one minute to bring each other’s festive wish-list to life…

To Laura, From Lauren


Berets were the way to go for Laura, who confessed her love for the French-girl classic in her gifting Q&A – we like how this one is made from wool and is designed in a muted rust-red hue. Co-ordinating cool came in the shape of a suede cross-body bag in the same shade, while smaller treasures included statement jewels in gold-plated metal from Z for Accessorize. As for the winter warmers, a blanket scarf with big, block stripes proved to be a festive favourite.




To Lauren, from Laura


Cold-weather glamour was on the cards for Lauren, with the style blogger being treated to a faux fur scarf in classic black – perfect for wearing from day to dark during the festive season and right through winter. The gifting bundle was completed with a pair of chunky gold hoops – cited as an all-time wardrobe winner – plus a hand-held bag with colour-block stripes in burgundy, red and petal-soft pink.

3 Christmas Decorating Themes We Love

The holiday season is here – which means it’s officially acceptable to start re-watching those festive classics, planning those Christmas party playlists and, of course, decorating your home with all things merry and bright. Need a little inspiration? From festive sparkles to animal magic, get the season started with three of our favourite Christmas decorating themes that we’re loving for 2018.

 1. Sparkles All Round

When it comes to Christmas, there’s no such thing as too much sparkle – and that certainly goes for the decorations too.  From twinkling unicorns and flamingos, to sparkling bottles of fizz and feather-topped baubles, these light-catching creations were made to be mixed and matched in any way you want for an Instagram-worthy finish.


2. Animal Magic

If you want to nod to the traditional, look no further than our animal-inspired decorations. Knitted reindeers, polar bears, foxes and sloths (that’s right, sloths) make fun alternatives to classic Christmas baubles, while spreading plenty of festive cheer in the process.


3. London Calling 

From the Christmas lights to tinsel-topped trees: there’s nothing quite like London during the festive season. Bring the magic of the capital city into your home with these perfectly patriotic designs – think glittering black cabs, double-decker buses, post boxes and – our personal favourite – a knitwear-clad British bulldog.
