Christmas in bold colour at MATCHESFASHION.com
Head to MATCHESFASHION.com to discover stacks of stylish, luxurious and fun ways to spread some fashionable cheer this Christmas
In partnership with MATCHESFASHION.com
But one thing is certain, the need to show our loved ones we care has never felt stronger. Which is why the MATCHESFASHION.com gift guide, stacked with fun and fashionable presents, has launched at the perfect time.
'Lockdown 2', the sequel that nobody wanted, has come at a time when we'd usually be steeling our nerves for the first of many dashes around town trying to find present inspiration without resorting to panic buying.
Instead, with non-essential shops closed, we're taking a more laid-back approach and browsing from the comfort of our sofa, while we take advantage of an abundance of must-watch dramas, documentaries and the occasional Christmas classic.
And while the year to date has been undeniably bleak, it has also been a lesson in looking for the positive where possible. Little wonder then that the rainbow, a symbol of 2020 if ever there was one, has influenced our approach to Christmas shopping this year.
From literal rainbow stripes on Christian Louboutin trainers to a healthy dose of bright knits and a smattering of fun leopard print, we've compiled some of the best joy-bringing, smile-inducing, life-affirming gifts to be found on MATCHESFASHION.com.
And as purchases from one of our favourite e-tailers come tissue paper-wrapped and in signature marble-effect gift boxes, less time spent wrapping means more time to devote to the hobby that got you through 2020.
