Christmas is all about love! It is about family and being around people who are dear to you. But Christmas is also about gifts! Now the whole gift thing can be pretty stressful. You spend a lot of time thinking about budgets, what to give and where to get it! We all want to find the best gifts ever – and there is nothing worse than this expression “Oh ehhh wow…. a pair of Santa socks…. ahemmm, thats just what I needed.”
My boyfriend is probably the worst person in the world to buy gifts for. He is French – and he is picky! So even though he thinks that the best idea of a gift is me showing up wearing only a red ribbon in front of my entire family, I still believe that there are better options out there...
No reason to go out shopping. I can do it all online, and focus on what I love the most – decorating the Christmas tree at my Mum’s house!
My mission today is to give you guys amazing Christmas gift ideas – and you can buy most online (which means, you can stay warm under the blanket and forget about Piccadilly Line and a very busy Oxford Street)
Because you are my devoted readers, I even have extra treats in the Christmas stocking for you… You will be able to get discount vouchers, by using the codes mentioned in this post. Remember they are only valid until Christmas, and they are meant for you alone!
The Savile Row Company is a global online retailer of fine luxury goods with a focus on menswear. “As a company, we have made it our mission to provide our customers with genuine luxury clothing at affordable prices” (Andrew McMaster – my dear Irish friend from the company)

I love tea! I think, I drink around five or six cups a day! There are so many lovely places in London, where you can get your favourite tea, but I think we can all agree that there is one brand we all know – and that is Twinings!
My favourite: A selection box of black teas as well as a green tea and award-winnning infusion.
You will get this brand new Collection gift for free, when you spend £20 with this code: LLLGIFT
This is probably one of my favourite stores! I believe that every girl should have a selection of Wolford beauties in her closet! And right now, there is actually a sale going on, so what are you waiting for!
My favourite: The sheer and transparent stay-up with with a beautifully shaped wave design (I will never wear anything other stay-ups than Wolford! You might think it is an expensive brand, but honestly – they last forever and ever!)
As mentioned before, Wolford has a great sale going on. Remember to use this code at checkout: SALE16
I don’t think you will find a person more devoted to musicals than me. I love getting gifts, where I have something to look forward to, and I also like, when I can get a discount (musical tickets aren’t exactly cheap) At London Theatre Direct, you can get really good last minute deals, so this is the place I usually buy my tickets
My favourite: I am proud to admit, that I have seen The Phantom of the Opera five times – and I am more than happy to go again!
I’m so happy to know Dimitri from The Organic Wine Club. First of all because I get the most delicious organic and natural wines. When I drink wine (and that happens quite often), it is nice to know that the wines from Organic Wine Club are more nutritious, richer in antioxidants and contain no harmful pesticide residue
My favourite: Il Terraio Paterna 2015 from Tuscany.
There is a wonderful story behind this wine! Believe it or not, in Tuscany a small cooperative invited people to work the fields and rehabilitate from their mental illnesses. As a result they produce wine. Organic Wine Club thought it was a great idea to donate £1 from each bottle sold this month to a mental health charity. I love this – so here is a chance to do something good for someone else in the Christmas spirit
Now Dimitri has been so kind to give me a special 10% discount voucher, that you can also benefit from (let the party begin!) Simply visit their website and use this code, when ordering: Louise10
Psssst: Organic wine also has an amazing offer on their Xmas 12-bottle case. It is available to be snapped up with this code: XMAS25
Barbour, Hunter, Le Creuset, Dubarry and Le Chameau… These are just a few brands to mention in this fabulous online store. Now you have the chance to get some of these amazing quality goods with a special discount code.
My favourite: A classic waterproof wax jacket from Barbour. Perfect for a trip to the countryside!

This is the ultimate place to buy all your presents at the same place – and they already have a huge sale going on, so there is no reason to wait until January!
My favourite: The perfect red Christmas dress from Coast! Reduced price! (I’m definitely buying this one!)
How about giving your Christmas shopping a little je ne sais quoi this year with DFDS’ new packaged festive break to the beautiful city of Lille (I am currently trying to persuade Frenchie to join me on this trip – also so I can practice a bit of French)
