Well it's that time of year again when we are all out shopping. Whether we are looking for a nice gift to give or trying to find something to wear to that Christmas party, December can be a busy month.

To get organised and before the shops sell out of the party styles and your size, it is best to get your Christmas outfit sorted then you can go full steam ahead on the presents knowing you have your night covered and avoid panic buying at the last minute.

A little black dress is perfect at any time of year. This tassel shift dress from Match on Suffolk Road, Lowestoft, is smart and chic, if you want to add some sparkle you can go all out on your shoes and clutch.

If you haven't already decorated the tree, then head into the town. I have noticed some gorgeous baubles around. Vintage or modern, there are some lovely colours and themes from Marks & Spencers, TX MAXX, Homewood & Rose and Kerrys. I love the Rose gold colour and could be teamed with a Rose Gold necklace which would make a lovely gift.

Another Christmas gift which is popular to give at this time of year is a nice new throw for your home. Green has proved popular from rich emerald to olive and lime. I found this one in Dunelm, which I love, plus the tweed effect gives it a designer look.
