Buying a gift for your friends or family can be difficult enough when they don't possess 'notions.'

What are notions, you ask? Well, it's essentially when a person has grandiose elements of extravagance; whether in terms of fashion, style, food & drink, décor or just in their everyday life.

They drink non-fat, no-foam, five-shot half-caffeine pumpkin spice latte in a special cup at a certain temperature and will refuse to do most activities due to footwear, except yogalates.

You'd never catch them drinking cans, especially not Tesco lager; they're most likely only drinking a craft beer that no one has heard of or a slimline tonic with lime cordial and a shot of vodka on the side.

Plebs such as us probably would take a taxi or public transport to a club, whereas someone with 'notions' might take a large limousine with white doves as their accessories.

According to the Urban Dictionary definition:

…You get the idea. It's luxurious hipster-ism.

So, how does one buy a present for someone who are that little bit too big for their boots? It's hard, but not impossible.

Faux real, winter is well and truly on its way. "What does this mean?" I hear you ask. It means… it's time to get FURRY.

Finding the perfect coat can be a difficult, time-consuming and frustrating task. We've decided to do all the work FUR you, and compile a list of every coat that has caught our eye on the high street this winter season.

So far, brands such a Monki, Mango, Topshop and Zara have impressed us with their glamorous faux fur, but there are some KILLAH vintage websites such as Nine Crows, ASOS Marketplace and Beyond Retro which sell vintage faux fur items that have us collapsed on the floor in sheer fashion overdrive.

I mean, you're welcome.

Fur can be a tricky business to navigate, finding the right one to suit you is honestly like picking your new home. You're seeking comfort, warmth, and a place to sleep.

What? You can't deny that those coats are prime nap-time material. They're warmer than our hearts after watching pupper videos on Youtube.

Which one's your favourite?

Just when we feel like we've had enough of rainbow everything… these wine glasses hit us up and we're all over the trend again.

Mermaids and unicorns have been taking centre stage this summer, but if you're not bothered rushing into Art & Hobby for some glitter, then feast your eyes on these little beauties.

Urban Outfitters has a range of wine glasses with a translucent rainbow pattern, and all you have to do is pour the wine and walk away… before coming back over to down it, obvs.

The coupe glasses come in a set of two, and are probably the easiest way to get in on the trend.

And just imagine the Insta pics…

If you fancy showing off at your next dinner party, you can buy the glasses here.

High-street fashion retailer H&M has been forced to issue an apology today over a particular scarf. 

Yes, a scarf. 

The shop is currently stocking a monochrome striped scarf that many are claiming closely resembles the Tallitt which is the official prayer shawl of the Jewish faith. 

"We are truly sorry if we have offended anyone with this piece. Everyone is welcome at H&M and we never take a religious or political stand," a spokesperson for the store told Vogue.co.uk. 

"Stripes are one of the trends for this season and something we were inspired by. Our intention was never to upset anyone."

It's not the first time a high-street retailer has caused offence and it certainly won't be the last. 

1) Urban Outfitters 

This design on a tapestry blanked from Urban Outfitters caused controversy after being described as too similar to the uniform gay concentration camp prisoners were forced to wear to make themselves known.

2) Topshop 

Topshop was slammed for using ultra skinny mannequins in its stores and was forced to issue an apology as well as vowing to never use the ultra skinny versions again. 

3) H&M 

The scarf was not the first time H&M faced controversy over one of its designs. 

The retailer was also criticised for using the image of a skull inside what appeared to be the star of David. 

4) Urban Outfitters 

Yep, UO again!

This time, the retailer was forced to pull this design as it appeared to have a blood stained pattern on a university jumper. 

Not very conscientious considering the number of shootings that happen on American campuses…

5) American Apparel

American Apparel has faced constant criticism over the sexualisation of its models and women in general for its advertising campaigns. 

The ads got so racy that the brand simply started to hire porn stars to get the desired effect.

Retail giant Urban Outfitters have come under fire for producing a design that is "eerily reminiscent" of the Holocaust.

A tapestry blanket on sale in US branches of the store and online which features a pink triangle over a blue and white striped design has been slammed for its extreme similarity to the uniform that gay concentration camp prisoners were forced to wear to make themselves known.

The US Anti-Defamation League have released a statement about the design, saying it is "deeply offensive" and "should not be mainstreamed into popular culture."

Although Urban Outfitters have not yet made any official statement, the design seems to have been removed from the company's online shop.

This is not the first time that the retailer has come under fire for using potentially offensive imagery related to the Holocaust and WW2. Back in 2012, the ADL criticised the sale of an Urban Outfitters shirt that had a symbol very similar to the Star of David sewn on the chest.

The company also received huge backlash last year when they began selling sweaters with the words "Kent State University" emblazoned on the front, along with what looked like spatters of blood.

Many felt it was a crude reference to the tragic shooting at Kent State University in 1970, during which four unarmed students were shot during a protest.

The store later apologised for any offence caused, saying they "deeply" regretted placing the item on sale and adding, "There is no blood on this shirt nor has this item been altered in any way. The red stains are discoloration from the original shade of the shirt and the holes are from natural wear and fray."

We hope the retailers learn their lesson this time around.

Clothing company, Urban Outfitters are facing massive backlash over a jumper they have on sale.

The jumper features the crest for Kent State University and has speckles of blood on the front.

Tragically, four unarmed students were killed during a protest against the Cambodian Campaign in 1970 at the university in what became known as the Kent State shootings. 

People have been expressing their anger about the distasteful jumper on Twitter, with many in disbelief that Urban Outfitters actually saw fit to release such a garment. 

A search for the jumper on the clothing company's website now says that the jumper has sold out, somehow we think it may just have been pulled. Or at least we hope so. 

The company has since released an apology for the offending jumper.
