Snow is bellowing around the United Kingdom which means that winter is coming fast. Christmas is around the corner and will be here before we know it. Advent calenders are becoming the new Winter wallpaper and we are all looking for that something unique from the high street.
With Black Friday and Christmas coming, shopping is becoming higher on the to-do list and the festive season can be a very stressful time of year as we search for the perfect gifts for friends and family. What do you buy for that someone who likes something a little different? Here at Humanity Hallows, we have tried to provide some answers and, at the top of the to-buy list, an accessory is the most affordable and thoughtful way to deliver a unique gift and to avoid those dreaded gift giving blunders.
Here are our Top 5 quirky fashion picks that will get you, and the people you are buying for, noticed this festive season:
Skinnydip London have collaborated with The Simpsons to create a range of eccentric pieces that are sure to satisfy the desire for something practical yet kooky. There is no getting away from it, this is a statement bag and would look stunning in anyone’s hand. It is fun and flirty with the originality that Skinnydip is known for. The clutch is a perfect accessory if you wish to stand out and is sure to hold all your essential bits and pieces and, at £28, it is at a great price. The bag is sold out at the moment with stocks due in on the 25th November 2016! So keep an eye out!
Now with offerings from stores such as Firebox, slippers are a must have at Christmas and the hedgehogs and reindeers trend has got everyone talking. Wear something a bit different on your feet this winter with the amusing faces on the Blobfish. Beauty is the eye of the beholder and in this instance, it certainly is. They will continue to make you smile as you wander around your house or if you are adventurous, try wearing them to your local shop! At £29.99, they are not cheap for slippers but are certainly worth the comfort and are definitely unisex!
Ok, we might be pushing the boat out with budget here but it is worth it and, if you want to own the Queen of Quirky in regards to phone cases, you will have to splash the cash to do so. Taking the idea of the capsule collection to a literal sense for S/S 2017, is this phone case and the collection that runs alongside it. The ever growing Moschino portfolio shows them staying closer to their ever-evolving aesthetic. A great gift idea for that special someone who loves something a bit different.
Last year it was Beard Baubles, this year it’s beard glitter! Men must love decorating themselves up with decorations. This is something a little bit different and is for the man in your life who might want to liven up their body hair. With man-scaping all the rage at the moment and men caring more about how they look, this is the perfect accessory for that special someone in your life. Your man’s face will be the glitter ball around every table and people will have beard envy. Once applied it will look like he has dipped his face in a bucket of tinsel. At £14.99, it is also a sensible price. Coat it in glitter and let that beard sparkle!
Swatch Watch are the kings of the individual watches and aim to decorate your wrist with original and peculiar timepieces. This watch is new to this season and is perfect for the duck lovers in your life. Bit ambiguous about the knife and fork on the face as the hands but I’ll let you decide on that one. The duck face perfectly complements the checker strap. It is balanced out by the orange and greys which contrast perfectly without it looking cheap. This is one classic watch. At £47.50, it is not cheap but worth every penny. You’d have to be quackers not to love it!
