Women + Waves top 10 items on their Xmas List

Women + Waves share their most desirable Christmas list this year! 

It's not long until we're sat with our friends and family opening our presents on Christmas morning. There's nothing more awkward than unwrapping your gift to feel slightly bummed deep down, that it's not exactly what we'd hoped for. Even though you probably said 'don't worry about getting me anything, I don't mind'. (To be very honest, I feel a little disappointed that my Christmas present under the tree isn't barking this year, but hey ho that's sometimes the way it goes.) To avoid any more fake smiles on Christmas day I came up with a list of all the things I wanted and thought maybe it will help you with your list to give to your loved ones or at least some inspiration for others. There's no shame in it, it probably makes it easier for them to just pick a few items off the list.

1. Three Six Five Diary
OK, it's a huge guilty pleasure but Tiffany, off Made In Chelsea just created a new vegan pleather diary full of cute ideas for your year. Lots of positive thinking and creative ways to keep your schedule organised and you feeling your best! 

Roughly around £30 on  www.three-six-five.co.uk

7. Alexa. 
Well it's just hours of fun. You can do quizes with her (perfect for Xmas with the family), ask her inappropriate questions, wind up everyone in the house and of course play any music or podcasts on demand. 

The basic Alexa starts from £35 and is even better if you have a little speaker to blue tooth it with. Get it on Amazon.co.uk

8. Milk & Honey Book
I hear Rupi Kaur's first book, Milk and Honey, is the poetry collection seems to be every woman needs on her night stand. Accompanied by her own sketches, the beautifully honest poems read like the everyday, collective experiences of today's modern woman.

Available at Waterstones - around £7

10. Little book of Hygge by Miek Wiking
I've just finished 'The Little book of Lykke'. Once I picked it up I couldn't put it down. It's an amazing insight into the Danish world and it will make you want to book tickets to Denmark instantly! So the next one on the list to read is the Little Book of Hygge. 

Available at any good book store but if your in Newquay support your locals at Watershed who currently have them in store and online:  watershedshop.co.uk
