Choosing the perfect gift can be a tricky one. It’s only too easy to spend hours upon hours trawling around shops in search of the ideal present, only to feel decidedly underwhelmed at your final choice. In response to this never ending dilemma I’ve curated The Ultimate Gift Guide: The Instagram edit. This little edit endeavours to pull a small selection of the brands making waves throughout our Instagram feeds, whether that be through the influx of influencers wearing and displaying their products or simply due to their gorgeously inspiring gallery. There’s a little something for everyone here to ensure that the gift you pick really is the best. Oh, I should mention, this is definitely an excuse to treat yourself.
Bloom & Wild
Bloom & Wild make the giving and receiving of beautiful fresh flowers ‘the joy it is meant to be.’ As the original letterbox flower delivery company, they offer a range of beautiful bouquets delivered straight to your door. One peep at their Instagram account shows a burst of colourful petals, from gorgeous blood roses to feathery pink peonies. There’s absolutely nothing but delight in receiving a sweet smelling bouquet from Bloom & Wild.
British designer jewellery brand Missoma are just about everywhere. Focusing on gorgeous demi- fine contemporary jewellery, the brand create the perfect pieces for your everyday wardrobe. Jewels, golds and silvers are delicate and distinctive and look as good teamed with a white tee as they do with a black evening gown. And with ultimate cool girl Lucy Williams having boasted her own Missoma collection we know we’re onto something special.
Rock On Ruby
One of the most fun and funky lil’ fashion brands about, Rock on Ruby offer an array of cute tee’s and accessories perfect for personalising. Seen on some of the biggest influencers like Sinead Crowe, these pieces are the embodiment of fun and playfulness. And extremely pocket friendly. Psst…I designed their Love, love, kiss, kiss tee myself!
Sejal Patel Ceramics
A new discovery, Sejal Patel Ceramics create the most beautiful, one-of-a-kind pieces. The more minimalistic white and gold compliment one another beautifully, whilst brighter geometric pieces will make a statement in any corner of the room. Thoughtful, and something a little bit different.

Wanting to gift a piece of clothing? Nothing exudes cool vibes quite like Cecilie Copenhagen. The labels signature scarf-jacquard fabric always takes a relaxed shape, allowing it to flatter most figures. Insta would suggest that this is thee brand to invest in and with simplicity and timelessness to boot, it would be a travesty not to.
