As much as my friends and family say that buying presents for me is tricky since I shop so often, imagine how hard it must be to gift a celebrity?!
First off there’s the gifts they get from brands throughout the year (what a perk of the job, eh?), then consider how much they buy for themselves to keep their looks current. Looking for the gaps to buy them something they actually need, or something they’d like but haven’t already acquired is no mean feat.
But, in case their friends and family are wondering, there are some high street heroes that I reckon would be *big* winners if these celebs found them under their trees come Christmas day. Thank me later…
Ugg dupes for Molly-Mae Hague
Molly’s due to give birth to her first baby girl soon, so she’s been sporting an array of comfy-cool looks in recent weeks. Her shoe of choice? The humble Ugg, which is really having a moment this season.
It’s for that reason that I’d plump for a similar pair, since you know they’re already a staple for the mum-to-be. What she’ll really be impressed by is a pair that she can humblebrag about: Enter the dupe for Ugg’s sellout slipper mules. She’ll be shook.
A quilted coat for Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
If I think of luxe outerwear, Rosie HW springs to mind as her collection is unrivalled. From Bottega Veneta to The Row, she’s the poster girl for cost-is-no-object winter wear. I love that for her. But for those buying her presents, it must be a bit of a mare, but that’s where a brilliant dupe comes in.
This Arket quilted number is a doppelganger for the Frankie Shop’s infamous padded jacket. So much so, I doubt Rosie will notice the difference. (OK, she will, but she’ll love it all the same.)

Vinyl trousers for Hailey Bieber
Mrs Bieber + a pair of cool trousers + crop top + oversized blazer is an outfit formula made in fashion heaven, so if you’re gifting Hailey, it makes sense to go for something that ticks one of these boxes.
A party dress for Rochelle Humes
That’s why I feel she’d really appreciate a party dress. She could pair this spangly Zara number (which looks way more expensive than it is, FYI) with knee-high boots for NYE or with Nike trainers for a high-low Christmas day look.
A quirky knit for Taylor Swift
Taylor and cutesy vintage knits go hand-in-hand, so what better brand than Kitri (renowned for fun It prints) to invest in a jumper for Miss Swift? Who wouldn’t coo over this flower pot knit – it’s a chic alternative to a Christmas jumper, and she can wear it come spring with jeans, espadrille wedges and a bright red pout.
A sexy slip for Rihanna
If there’s anyone who will prove how useful a mini slip dress is, it’s Rihanna. With a bomber jacket, a knit and Dr Martens boots by day, or strappy heels, sunglasses and a faux fur coat by night, I can bet Riri would be thrilled at the prospect of opening this slinky little number on Christmas day.
