This year, the Duchess and the Heiress were so lucky to receive so many gifts that reminded us of Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge. While spending time with family and loved ones, we sent happy Christmas wishes to you, the British Royal Family, and Kate-lovers worldwide.
Many of our gifts were “Princess-inspired,” purchased with our love of Catherine in mind. Some of them just reminded us of our favorite future queen! And other may have been purchased for us by us (the Heiress is a BIG fan of spoiling oneself…) but the message is clear – we were happy to send, receive and spread joy this Christmas season!
Burberry bag: The classic British brand is a favorite of Kate’s. Remember her Burberry trench? The unmistakable Burberry print is a big deal here in North America, and this catch-all tote is perfect for day-to-day!
Longchamp bag & Le Chameau wellies: Both water resistant and perfect for those rainy London days! Catherine is a fan of both brands, often sporting them at official and unofficial events.
Pearl necklace & bracelet: Pearls are timeless, elegant, and understated – qualities that remind us of Kate. Although pearls may have fallen out of royal favor recently, we think they are the perfect go-to accessory! Like an LBD for your neck.
Fleur-de-lis pendant: The fleur-de-lis is a symbol of royalty, reminding us to always wear our invisible crown! A little something to remind us that all girls are princesses, the gold necklace is a darling little pendant.
Creme Brulee kit and KitchenAid mixer: The Duchess of Cambridge is quite the domestic goddess, even growing her own potatoes. While we may not be THAT domestic, we can still whip up a mean creme brulee with our new burnisher, or a scrumptious batch of scones in the mixer.
Home Depot Gift Card: Living in an old farmhouse in Anglesey must mean leaky roofs and a need for renovations, just like our own Duchess’s home! Renovations are stressful and time consuming, but now they can be affordable thanks to the thoughtfulness of friends and family!
Did you receive any Kate-inspired gifts this year? Please share!
