Holiday Gift Guides - a not-so-secret obsession

I don't want a lot for Christmas (there is just one thing IIIIIIII neeeeeeed), but it certainly hasn't stopped me indulging in one of my all-time favourite passions; drooling over Christmas gift guides. I think I might even love them more than I love mince pies! Although, obviously, if I can browse Christmas gift guides with a mince pie in hand I'll be the happiest elf on Earth. 

Thankfully, everyone else seems to love compiling gift guides- a match made in list heaven :) These are some of my favourites I've found so far: 

1. These incredible colour-coded guides from Miss Moss *swoon* - blue, black, brown, green and pink. I'm in love.

2. Jo from A Cup of Jo has put together a gift guide for different friends and family members; MumDadHusband, Little One, Best Friend, Brother, and Sister.... And you can find links to all her previous gift guides here.

3. Miskabelle vintage have compiled guides for the Glamour Puss, the Bohemian and the Vintage Virgin. Whilst some of the items they've chosen probably can't be shipped to the UK, they still contain some beautiful pieces which might spark some gift-related inspiration.

4. Two guides for their (or your) inner rock chic from Where Did You Get That - one and two

5. You can peruse ethical gift guides to do some guilt-free shopping through Christmas Your Way and Oxfam

6. The Guardian have put together an interactive guide featuring over 300 gift ideas from the high street and independent makers and Stylist magazine have done three budget-dependant ones in the ranges of £10 and under, £10-50 and £50-100.

All of these are under a tenner. WIN. 
7. Bargains galore with Georgiabeee's guest post on Painted Glitter with five stocking fillers for under a fiver, and A Thrifty Mrs has covered a whole host of cheap yet lovely Christmas ideas from gift guides to craft tutorials to rounding up the best free Christmas printables. Hurrah! 

8. And an awesome handmade gift guide from Kittenhood. Anyone want to get me the stag brooch in the neon section, pretty please?

Have you found any particularly brilliant gift guides this year? Please do share your links below - especially if you've put one together yourself!
