Grey Check Blanket Scarf - £19 - Accessorize
Pale Grey Pom-Pom Bag Charm - £3.99 - New Look
Silver Knot Ring - £15 - Whistles
Double Pom Beanie Hat - £17 - Accessorize
Fair Isle Ballerina Slippers - £8 - F&F Tesco

Lily says: This Gift Guide features purse-friendly products - all under £20 - in gorgeous muted greys and soft lilacs. Personally I love these colours in the depths of winter; there's something cozy and timeless about them and they offer a break from the heavy reds, golds and greens of the season. My main goal was to find gifts and accessories that show you don't have to pay the earth to look wonderful this winter. The pom pom bag charm, for example, is a steal at £3.99 yet I've seen ones almost exactly the same selling for well over £25! Why pay so much for a trend-based accessory? I hope this proves useful and you find some inspiration for your Christmas shopping sprees!

Jewellery: Hoot hoot


- Owl Ring - £165 - Zoe & Morgan

Lily says: This handmade Sterling Silver ring is carved with intricate detail to depict a beautiful owl that encompasses the wearer's finger with its wings. I love it! I imagine I would wear it on my index finger as a statement piece, were I lucky enough to own it. Hoot hoot!
