Christmas Gift Guide - The Last Minute Edition!

Happy Monday! The week may have started off a little rainy and cold but there are only five working days separating us from the festivities and well deserved time off. Only five tiny days between us happily retreating to the sofa, opening a box of chocolates and enjoying a much needed glass of bubbly. Now, that is something to truly celebrate and look forward to! If you've been super organised this year with presents, gift wrapping and everything in between, you can ease into the smugness of having the festive season ticked off. However, if like us, you're a bit of a panic shopper and there is a big ol' list of presents still waiting to be sorted out, our last minute gift guide is here to help. With three last minute gift ideas for him and her, you will have all your outstanding gifts ticked off in no time. Time saved panicking about gifts = more time for festive drinks, right?

For Her 

So whether you're shopping for friends, mums, sister or grandmas - we truly have something for every gal in your life. Our luxe Clemmie tote comes in a range of shades and is perfect for a special lady in your life while our Flora and Clara  pieces are perfect for sisters, best friends and your girl squad. We also love a touch of personalisation with our monogrammed key rings - the perfect stocking filler or Secret Santa Piece. All the pieces mentioned come in a wide array of colours for you to mix and match - we just couldn't resist showing you our glitzier numbers for the festive season!

For Him

And what about the boys? We hear you ask. Don't worry, we have gift giving sorted for them as well.
Our Lou Tote is simply a no brainer when it comes to charming the gentleman in your life while an assortment of our roomiest wash bags is perfect for the jet setters who need to carry shaving balm, toiletries and tech equipment around the globe. As for the girls, we also can't resist a key ring perhaps with a special date or nickname engraved in gold.

Happy Last Minute Shopping - don't forget our signature gift boxes are back this year in three sizes to   add a festive touch to your presents!

Festive Look Book

Happy start to December! How is everyone doing? Are you ready for Christmas? It's safe to say that here at Pepper Alley, there is great excitement round the office with Christmas tunes in full swing, wrapping paper everywhere ready to package up your festive goodies and competitive mince pie eating. We have also been giving festive dressing some thought and as you probably have your festive parties, drinks and events coming up, we thought we would share our top 3 outfit picks in a festive look book. With a leather accessory for every outfit as well as the team's fashion recommendations, what's not to love? Enjoy!

The Christmas Drinks Outfit - A touch of red appears obvious at Christmas but is there anything more stylish or warm? Do like VB and pair a bright matching clutch and shoes to your outfit to add a touch of contrast. We suggest a Rose Gold Flora for extra festive points. We can't promise your very own David Beckham with the outfit but one can hope - 'tis the season after all!


The Christmas Ball -  Whether it's a fancy do or the office Christmas ball, there are occasions where a  little glam is not just necessary but absolutely mandatory. We love glitter, sequins and everything sparkly but when it comes to balancing an outfit, nothing beats our nude clutches perfect to tone down the boldest of dresses. Having said this, a touch of grey suede looks incredibly elegant and can really bring an outfit together. 

The Cosy Christmas Drinks -  Not all Christmas events take place during the evening and require a tight dress or killer pair of heels. Whether it's some casual Christmas drinks, a festive evening at a friend's house or a Christmas play date with your children, dressing practically whilst adding a touch of glamour is key. That's why we love a slouchy jumper and a Clemmie tote to wear over the shoulder - perfect to pack Christmas presents, baby wipes and (why not!) a much needed bottle of fizz! 

What are your festive go - to looks? We want to know! All style pictures are courtesy of Pinterest and, in fact, they are from our gorgeous December board filled to the brim with our selection of festive treats, night in ideas and style picks. You can find our festive board right here for all your December inspiration.

Wishing you a lovely festive month ahead.
