You guuuys it's December, we are five days in which means Christmas is in twenty days! My gift guides have been super popular in the past so I wanted to put a different spin on things this year, and share with you items and brands I have been loving all year long. 

This one took me a little longer to put together as I reached out to a couple of the brands to bag you guys a discount. Thankfully I had some responses and my 2 favourite independent brands have been kind enough to create a discount code, just for you guys - Woop Woop! I have genuinely loved each and everyone of these products / brands for their own reasons, so let me talk you through them...

1. Vans Old Skool - The boy got me hooked on these trainers before they became Insta famous, lol. They literally look good on everyone and go with almost everything. I have never in my entire life re-bought a pair of trainers once they got old, but I will make the exception for these. 

2. LULU Bag - If you didn't know by now my name is Louise, so when Zi & Luwa offered to send me one of their bags its was only natural I fell for LuLu. This has been my bag of choice for the majority of the year (one scroll through my Instagram feed and you will see). I absolutely love this bag, the brand and the message behind them. I am always asked where my bag is from, it's not cheap but the quality and craftsmanship speak for themselves. DISCOUNT CODE: HAUTEXMAS FOR 20% OFF 

3. Erno Laszlo - I've already written about this brand (here) so I won't go on. I've been so impressed by Erno Laszlo, if you know a skin care junkie then this is the gift for them. I used the White Marble Double Cleanse and loved it. 

4. Personalised Clutch - I'm a sucker for anything personalised, so when HA Designs offered to gift me an item I couldn't refuse. I selected a nude clutch because it goes with everything and I needed one at the time. I wasn't disappointed, I love this clutch, the quality is fantastic and the personalisation makes it really special. These little key rings also make the cutest gifts. 

5. Chalk Jewellery - What can I say other than I'm in love! Created by an architect and all round girl boss, Chalk jewellery is both beautiful and unique. I really love supporting Independent companies and am so touched when they choose to support me too. I receive complements every time I wear my Moyo earnings, they are stunning. I also am obsessed with my Laila necklace, it looks amazing on its own or layered with other chains. DISCOUNT CODE: HAUTEXMAS FOR 20% OFF 

6. Ugg slippers - I'm not a fan of Uggs, but the boy bought me these slippers for my birthday in May and my feet can't thank him enough. They are the slippers of dreams, when in doors my feet are never to far from them. They are pricey for slippers but you will easily get 2 years or more out of them.  

7. Initial Mug - My sister bought me an initial mug and I lovvve it! It was actually a gift from my nephews to me, it is not this exact one, it looks like this one (here). But I've always wanted one of these Bombay Duck mugs, they are just adorable...hint, hint 

8. Nike Trainers - I got these trainers for my birthday and I've worn them non-stop, on a daily basis I basically go between these and my Vans. It doesn't have to be this exact pair, but I feel like an all white trainer is a MUST in your wardrobe. These are two other options I also considered (here) and (here). 

9. Statement Coat - So this picture is a representation for statement coats in general. If you are a fella and you are reading this - buy your missus a statement coat! I have been obsessed with statement coats this season, they literally take the most simple outfit up a notch or 4. I've decided you can never have to much faux fur -I'm on the hunt for my next find. Here are some other options (here), (here) and (here). 

So that's it, my top 9 things I have loved this year and have no doubt you will love also. Or to put it another way, the top 9 gifts I've been gifted this year that I've (capital L) loved. Whether you are reading this for gift inspo or you have decided you want to treat yourself you will not be disappointed by one single item on this edit. 

Thank you to Chalk Jewellery and Zi & Luwa for the very generous discount codes. Happy shopping guys. 

Lots of love. L xx
