Those Perfect Last Minute Gifts...

Style Theory: This year I have left it unbelievably late to do all my Christmas shopping, basic error on my part, but I have managed to bag quite a few tree presents for my family from Marks and Spencer. I am always amazed by how many beauty brands they stock and really gorgeous gift ideas. Look away family because here is what I have bought you....
M&S Cashmere Jumper £75
I am a huge fan of M&S cashmere, it is up there for me with the very best of the cashmere jumpers and just slightly less £££ than others. The jumpers wash well, I bought one of those cashmere washing netted bags off ebay to wash mine in and so far no shrinkage! I bought this for my Mum, she loves wearing a round neck jumper with a blouse underneath and navy is flattering against her skin.
M&S Pointed Pumps £29.50
Because one of my sister's loves a touch of sparkle but likes to dress it down with skinny, ankle jeans and a black poloneck..these shoes will look gorgeous on her on Christmas Day.
M&S Philip Kingsley Elasticizer £17
This has been recommended to my sister by her hairdressers as her hair (like mine) is pretty fine and damaged. It was initially created by Philip Kingsley for Audrey Hepburn so if it's good enough for Audrey it's good enough for my little sister..
M&S Pixi Multibalm 2 in 1 Lip and cheek colour £12
Multibalms are such useful products all year around, they are perfect for the schoolrun when I don't have time for make up, just a little moisturiser then slick of this on my cheeks and lips makes me look slightly more human. This is for the littlest sister..along with the mascara below..
M&S Pixi Lash Booster Mascara £14
Because everyone loves a new mascara!
M&S Ren Bathing the Night Away Gift Set was £50 now £25
My best friend loves Ren and this bath set is a real treat (and a great buy!)
M&S Christmas Makeup Bag Set was £25 now £12.50
I bought this for Jess as, at 10, she has more nail polishes and make up that I have ever owned in my life, hopefully these little make up bag will keep it all together.
M&S Signature Hand Care Duo £25
My friend has just moved into a new house so this is the kind of extravagant purchase I can never justify buying myself but as a present it is perfect because it will definitely be used.
M&S Rosie for Autograph Underwear Set
I do love a beautiful underwear set for Christmas and this is on my list..
M&S Mens Cashmere Jumper £89
My Dad loves a grey cashmere crew neck, every year he gets one from one of us but he wears them a lot and men are soooo difficult to buy for so this is a pretty safe but luxurious option.
M&S Oudinot Rose Pink Champagne £28
For the teachers as they work so hard teaching my kids they deserve a glass of pink champagne on Christmas eve..
M&S Pom Pom Throw £69
I have wanted this pom pom throw for ages, it looks gorgeous on a sofa or bed, a real treat for Christmas.
M&S Autograph Leather Shopper Bag £99
I use my red tote bag non stop, you can fit so much in them and the red adds a pop of colour to any outfit.
M&S Girls Unicorn Onesie £18-£27
I bought this Unicorn onesie for Jess for pyjama day at school and she lives in it, the softest, cosiest onesie and what little girl doesn't adore unicorns at the moment?
M&S Boys Onesie £16-£25
Jack has this onesie and also rushes to get into it when he comes home from school..

I could go on forever but it is safe to say M&S 'saved my Bacon' when I did a mad dash to the shops the other day, the easiest place to pick up a few gifts I know my family and friends will love.

How are you getting on with your Christmas shopping are you almost finished? If you are I am slightly envious I still have tons to get! As always I love hearing your thoughts and comments, until next time Fran xx
