I must say I do love a Christmas gift guide. There’s always such a bounty of enticingly wonderful things to buy for all the loved ones in your life. But filtering through it in the shops or online fills me with panic, and the fear I’ll get it very wrong, miss something really quite fabulous, or blow my whole budget on a frivolous festive frippery for the cat, leaving everyone else with a pair of gaudy novelty socks and a satsuma.
This year I’m swerving that Christmas calamity by adopting a very simple strategy called the one stop Shop!
Meaningful, elevated, sustainable and most definitely wanted gifts, all from under one roof. Well ok maybe not one, as there’s 2 stores in Clifton, one in Bath and online of course, but lets not split hairs.
Here’s my Maze gift list picks for my loved and tolerated one’s, well we all have them don’t we, you know the one’s who make you reach for the sherry at 9.05am after they’ve repeatedly told you they wouldn’t do it like that, from the comfort of their armchair. Oh the Festive Joys!
The husband - Practical, likes nice things, grew up by the sea
The kids - Decorative, arty, busy and cosy, pizza lover

Sister in law - as above
Auntie - sustainable, veggie, note writer
Nephew - eek 21 years olds?
The Cat - ungrateful creatures, they can have some Turkey, or maybe it’s a bit early for bah humbug
Me - If I were shopping for me
Yes I did include a little wish list of my own, just in case you know who is a Maze journal subscriber.
We hope the Maze gift guide, and my own family pressie list helps inspire you to commence your seasonal shopping with glee rather than panic and fear. Why not grab a brew, sit yourself comfortably and get some beautiful gifts ticked off that list.
