Christmas is a-coming and, seeing as I spend a LOT of time on Etsy (obvy), gawping at gorgeous items to share on social media, I thought I’d give you guys the gift of my very own wish list this festive season. It’s OK, you can thank me later…

Despite being a bit of a tech-head (thanks to the nature of my job), in contrast, my style veers more to the bohemian, spiritual (sort of) side of life. I favour floaty clothes (see pic), whimsical prints and jangling jewellery. Put it this way, if iPhones were around in the 70s, that would be my dream decade to live in.

If you know a similar chic hippy chick, here are 12 Etsy finds they might like this Christmas. And if my friends and family are reading, this is basically what I’d like for Christmas. Ta in advance!

Well, this print is a no-brainer, obviously. See also this Stevie Nicks one (AKA the Goddess of Boho).

Because you can never have too many galactic gems. Worn all at once, naturally.

And here, the geeky tendencies are tended to. But in the most hippy, tie-dye way, of course.

I LOVE these woven wall hangings and will pretend I made this one myself #lazyhippy

Us spiritual sorts love an inspirational quote or mantra – and this is a pretty important one to remember…

This layered necklace can be personalised with any words you want – come to Etsy House to get it done before your VERY EYES!

Get starry-earred with these sparkly Swarovski studs.

If your boho babe is into astronomy, she’ll appreciate this lamp will light up her life (and living room).

Gurrrrl fot flair flare(s)! Or she will have, with this super stylish, 70s-inspired velvet pair.

I’ve recently got into crystals, and this starter set is just DREAMY.
