Angela & Jenny: A gift guide to remember!

Ever wondered what Angela and Jenny would buy for Christmas, well wonder no more!

To celebrate the publication of I Heart Christmas the wonderful Lindsey Kelk has done a gift guide for the readers of Love of a Good Book.

Jenny loves a bit of over the top excess and Christmas is the perfect time of year to indulge. These Christian Louboutin leopard print booties are right up her alley – perfect to add pop to a pair of leather leggings or skintight jeans.

Angela loves her Loubies too but she’s so immersed in her career right now, she’d be much more interested in these classic black pumps. Perfect for running into a meeting and out to the bar…

As a super publicist, Jenny has so many Christmas parties to attend and this Alce + Olivia ball gown is the perfect mix of fairytale glam and edgy New York punk. Just add eyeliner and big hair.

Angela’s handbag has been through a lot and definitely deserves a rest. This Proenza Schouler satchel is perfect for carrying her laptop and assorted snacks.

Christmas = red lipstick season. Jenny would definitely want to get her mitts on MAC’s RiRi Woo collection.

Angela’s love of Marc by Marc Jacobs knows no bounds. This plaid and leopard print scarf is top of her wish list – leopard print to represent her BFF and plaid for her hipster hubby. It’s perfect!

Jenny Lopez is not Jenny Lopez without a kickass manicure. This Ciate Nail Lab would be a perfect pressie from her BFF.

As a Brit abroad, Angela would love this colourful Kate Spade tea set. Not that she’d ever end up using it, but it would look really nice in the kitchen.

I asked Lindsey the following:

Who Would You Find Under the Mistletoe?
I’ve been a bit generally anti-mistletoe action recently so I’m going to have to go for an old standard and pick the lovely Alan Rickman. I know what you’re all thinking, why not the Gosling? Well, I can’t help but feel that Alan would be a proper gent and probably even do the washing up after lunch. What’s not to love about that? Swoon
