21 Last-Minute Gifts That Are Too Chic to Look Like an Afterthought

Is it just us, or does it seem like two minutes ago since we opened the first door to our advent calendars? Now, we're hurtling towards Christmas Day faster than we'd throw ourselves on the last pair of Manolo Blahniks (more on those later) at a sample sale, with only a small portion of our present shopping having been completed. You might think this would be the ideal time to panic, but we have another solution: Who What Wear UK's Great Last-Minute Gift Guide. 

Instead of feeling guilty about the fact that you're not quite as organised as you'd like to be at this stage, we've made finding those last-minute gifts so much easier by bringing all of the chicest things from your favourite (digital) stores, all into one place—directly below! What's more, we've also had the final word on the last delivery dates from each brand, allowing you to shop knowing that your presents will reach you in time for December 25. Just call us your little shopping elves.
