Winter Gift Guide for the Shabby Chic Fanatic

It’s hard to believe, but Christmas is literally just around the corner. The weather is chilly and the evenings are getting dark and beautiful Christmas lights are being turned on across the country.

There is nothing worse than realising only a few days before Christmas, that you have forgotten to buy a gift for a loved one. The hottest new trend this year is shabby chic, so we have prepared the ultimate gift guide to get you ready for Christmas:


One of the hardest people to buy for, Mums have everything they ever need. But I bet they don’t have a lovely weathered cockerel key cabinet!


It is very hard to keep track of keys for all different parts of the house, not forgetting the amount of car keys that get scattered around the house if you have a big family, but with this characteristic vintage cockerel cabinet, all your keys can be kept in one easy place.

The cabinet even has a small chalkboard memo inserted in case you need to remember something just as you are leaving the house. There’s lots of great shabby chic furniture at Sylvester Oxford that your Mum is sure to love this Christmas.


If you are looking for a unique and personalised gift for your Dad this Christmas, then we have just the thing – a personalised beer or wine crate.


This really nice apple crate is personalised with the name of your choice and makes a great gift – whether you give it filled or empty! It’s a great way to transport your things around and also makes a great bit of extra storage in the house.


Buying a gift for your sister can often be tricky; as you want to get them something nice that doesn’t cost the world. This lovely cream heart earring holder makes the ideal gift:


Help her keep all her earrings in place with this pretty metal holder that will stop any dangly earrings becoming tangled up or damaged.


If you don’t know what to get your brother for Christmas and he is at the age when he could have a new interest in just about anything, then why not get him a useful gift he can take anywhere? Like this fab personalised student bag:


This brilliant bag can be used for school, college, university or work. It will fit in a laptop or some school folders and can look cool but still be practical. You can even personalise the city and message featured on the bag so that it reflect where you live or a city that your brother loves.


Whether you are buying for your own kids or someone else’s, there is a fantastic range of rustic or country-style toys and accessories just waiting to be chosen this Christmas. Our suggestion is this great two piece suitcase set:


This fantastic set means any little girl can travel in style and they also make great storage places for toys and games when not travelling. There will also be suitcase sets available in other colours if you are looking for something for a little boy, so this great gift will be treasured for years to come.

Shabby chic is a fantastic route to go down when buying your gifts this Christmas, it is fun and fashionable but can also be personalised to make a really nice gift even more special. Don’t leave your Christmas shopping until the last minute this year, use our gift guide to help you find the perfect gift for everyone in your life and make sure it is a Christmas to remember.
