Christmas shopping, nailed!

Here's what us Muddy HQ lot are buying for our loved ones. Er, don't tell them, will you?

Nailed your Christmas shopping yet? Nope, me neither. However, we have been making our lists (and checking them twice) here at Muddy HQ. Here’s what we’re buying for our nearest and dearest, plus a sneaky treat thrown in. Our gift picks are all available in and around the Grand Arcade shopping centre in Cambridge which means minimum faffing (and thus maximum time for post-shopping mulled wine quaffing). Go forth and bash that credit card!


Hero Brown, founder

I’ve got my eye on these Vans (£54.99) from Office for my teenage son. Loving the olive-green suede -it’s a bit different to your bog-standard navy or black. In fact I might buy myself a matching pair. He’d love that obviously.


Sascha Way, marketing director

My teenage daughter and her pals are all obsessed with neon lights at the moment. This jaunty rainbow one (£20) from stationery and gadget mecca Tinc will make a perfect stocking filler.


Katie Molloy, commercial director

You can’t go wrong with a classic camel wool coat to smarten up any outfit. This one (£159) from Zara has got my husband’s name on it.


Kerry Potter, associate editor

My 6-year-old twin nieces are maniacs for all things sparkly, shiny and glittery, so these Gap high-tops (£27.95)  are a no-brainer. Big tick for the zips alongside the laces, which will make getting them on that bit speedier.


Sarah Taylor, editorial assistant

After all that selfless shopping for others, the time comes for a spot of self-gifting. I’m coveting this H&M party dress (£69.99) – it’s more demure and grown-up than a lot of spangly frocks out there, thanks to the swishy pleated skirt, midi length and chic navy sequins.


Sophie Hadjikyriacos, editorial assistant

I’m hitting Zara menswear to spruce up my boyfriend’s wardrobe this Christmas. This sharp blue suit jacket (£59.99) and subtle floral shirt (£19.99) are great value.


Sallie Aylott, Editor of Muddy Cambs

Hobbs Laura Coat

I have a thing about fur, whether it’s on the floor, on the bed or on me ! I can’t take my eyes of this teal faux fur jacket from Hobbs and it will look stunning on the senior Mrs Muddy (aka my mother) this Chrimbo. It’s currently on offer at £139 so grab a bargain.
