Ok so we don't exactly need an excuse to treat ourselves to a fashionable gift – but boy do we love being given an incentive to! For the past five years, Gucci has created a limited edition collection as part of the Gucci Campaign to Benefit UNICEF where part of the proceeds go directly to the charity in support of their continued work in Africa. This year Gucci have teamed up with acclaimed author Michael Roberts to create illustrations and a sequel to his highly successful book Snowman in Paradise. The sequel Snowman in Africa is on sale now for £18 and 100% of the proceeds will go to UNICEF. The illustrations from the book have also been used on a collection of bags and accessories* that are also on sale now. We've picked the super-cute, elephant-print 'Joy' bag to go at the top of our wishlist. Uber-model Elle Macpherson has already been seen out and about looking super-stylish with hers. So are you tempted...thought so!
