    First up, here are four fabulous presents for under ?30 - perfect if you're looking for something brilliant on a budget.

    Tatty Devine Psychedelic Heart Necklace

    While we're coveting pretty much everything from Tatty Devine's 2013 Autumn/Winter collection, we've got a particularly soft spot for this?Tatty Devine Psychedelic Heart Necklace (?30.00). Inspired by psychedelia, the 1960s and the 'great Summer of love,' it's bold, bright, beautiful and looks like it hopped right out of the Beatles Yellow Submarine!

    Ted Baker Rowon Rocking Horse Stud Earrings

    Rocking horses remind us of the festive season, and we think that these delightfully quirky?Ted Baker Rowon Rocking Horse Stud Earrings (?29.00) would make a great stocking filler. If you're feeling flush, they also have a matching necklace - just the thing to complete the look!

    Dogeared Charmed Sterling Silver Anchor Ring

     

    Ahoy there sailor! This simple silver?Dogeared Charmed Anchor Ring (?28.95) has a real retro feel to it, and would be the perfect accessory for any budding pin-up girl. If it's a bit too simple for your tastes, it looks great layered up with any of the other rings from our (vast) Dogeared collection!

    Lola Rose Hannah Marie Bracelet in Beryl Stone

    Feminine without being overly girly, this?Lola Rose Hannah Marie Bracelet in Beryl Stone (?24.95) is an utterly stunning shade of pale pink. Featuring a mixture of smooth, chunky translucent stones, who needs diamonds when you've got something this pretty around your wrist?

    We know that a lot of you like to order your Christmas gifts early, so we've extended our returns period for the Christmas season. Items purchased from AccessoriesOnline.co.uk and despatched from November 4th, 2013 to December 23rd, 2013 may be returned at any time until Monday January 6th, 2014.

    There's only 19 shopping days left until Christmas! (Don't worry, we've still got loads to do too.) However, there's no need to panic just yet.

    While we know that we're cheating slightly today seeing as these Les Nereides Sous Le Chataignier Robin and Bow Earrings? (?45.00) don't feature any hens, they are French (Les Nereides was founded in Nice) which we think wins us a free pass.? Comprising of golden bows, shimmery pearls and little robins that hold tiny hearts in their beaks, these are absolutely adorable and utterly romantic. They'd make a wonderful gift for your little birdy this Christmas.

    Lola Rose's Autumn/Winter collection is full of lovely little goodies.

The rose quartz symbolises 'love and peace,' two attributes you may be in need of if you're trying to cook a three course dinner for your nearest and dearest this Christmas day.

    Cath Kidston Charm Bracelet with Squirrel

    You may think that friendship bracelets are ratty pieces of knotted string exchanged by kids in playgrounds, but you'd be wrong. Cath Kidston's are fashionable, pretty and full of that whimsical touch which makes her collection so unique. This Squirrel Charm Bracelet (?12.00) is absolutely adorable - we particularly like the cheeky little glint in Mr. Squirrel's eye! It would make a great present for that special friend in your life.

    Tatty Devine Mini Hawk Moth Necklace in Brown

    Okay, so moths aren't the most festive insect, but this Tatty Devine Mini Hawk Moth Necklace in Brown (?18.00)?is undeniably pretty. The markings may look delicate, but there’s a sinister undertone to its beauty. Look closely and you’ll see the tiny outline of a skull peering back at you. This?would add a nice - if slightly gothic - touch to any Christmas jumper or dark Winter dress.

    Butler and Wilson Crystal Twist Hair Clip On Teal and Aurora Borealis

  • Oh the Weather Outside is Frightful...

    Jam packed high streets, crowded shops, freezing weather. All the reasons why I like to get my Christmas shopping done by the end of November. Plus, running an online jewellery company keeps me kind of busy in December. Online shopping is definitely the way to go - I've done the majority of my shopping this way for a number of years.? What can beat shopping from the comfort and warmth of your own home, armed with a glass of mulled wine and a plate full of mince pies? Not much, especially in this kind of weather.

    Christmas Shopping Online

    I believe that Christmas shopping should be enjoyable. This is where buying online has the advantage. I find it really hard to maintain that 'festive spirit' when you're carrying heavy bags and battling through hoards of shoppers. Am I alone in this? Probably not.

    If you're shopping online then I think it's really important that delivery is free and fast. I placed an order with a well known online retailer last week and paid ?5.95 for 'standard' delivery to the UK. Six days later and it still hasn't been despatched. I'm pleased to say you'll find none of that here.? This week has been our busiest to date since we started trading back in 2004. but we're still managing to despatch 99.9% of all orders on the same day. It's our aim to maintain this level of service through the busy Christmas period. We've built up a good reputation for our speed of delivery and we won't be letting it slip. This year we introduced free UK delivery which has been really popular with our customers - after all, it was our customers who asked for it. We now have a free returns service too, so our UK customers don't have to pay a penny to send things back to us.

    To make things a bit easier we've also set up a? Christmas gift guide. The guide has been broken down into categories, with each category containing some of our best selling and most gifted items.? You can also use the little widgety thing on the left of the page to sort by price and designer if you'd like to. Another thing we've done to try and keep things easy and enjoyable for you.

    So stay inside, stay warm and shop online!
