It's no secret that I love Anthropologie - their home wares make me swoon. At Christmas time it just goes into overdrive! Gilded golden heaven. Since a store opened locally to me in Guildford, my love have just developed. And my bank balance diminished...
Twisted twig measuring spoons £24, Gilden thistle nut bowl £12, Langholm cheese knives £32, Limited Edition Monogram Mug £8
Yes, their prices aren't always purse-friendly but if you have a good old rummage there are some really great buys. Last year I didn't get my hands on a golden monogram mug, so this year I was in there straight away! At only eight quid, they are a relatively guilt-free buy and would make a great gift this Christmas. In fact, I think Anthropologie is perfect for gift-buying. A lot of the gorgeous items they sell are just that - gorgeous - but not something many of us can justify spending money on. I mean, who doesn't want bronzed, golden and silver cheese knives?! I certainly do, but wouldn't be able to justify buying them myself.
