I don’t know about you but every day this month there seems to be a birthday! In fact, if I didn’t have my trusty diary I don’t know how I’d be managing to keep up with them all. I love birthdays, there’s something magical about them, something about showing the people in your life how much they mean to you that has always touched me. So when it comes to birthdays’ of the people I know I tend to pull all the stops out! Cakes, flowers, presents, decorations – you get the idea!
But presents can be tricky! So I’ve come to your aid to give you some inspiration for what to buy for the people closest to you. If you’re looking for yourself, check out my shopping lust list – you might even find some ideas for your presents!

For the chef
I always find buying for a chef hard, but I adore the idea of getting them something that they can use every day or keep for special occasions. I don’t think I know a chef that doesn’t want to be called a masterchef or that they’re the big cheese.
