Christmas gift guide

4 comments


After my stocking filler gift guide proved to be quite popular with you all this year I thought I'd make another one but with gifts a little pricier but still including some cheaper options too so there's something for everyone's budgets this year! I love reading other bloggers gift guides for Christmas when I'm stuck for ideas, so I hope turns one out to be helpful for someone that needs a little last minute christmas gift inspiration. This guide will include a range of gifts including fragrances, beauty, candles, pyjamas and even food so hopefully there will be something for everyone!









First up is the Christmas pamper gift box from Sweet Bella Gifts, I've had a few gift boxes from this company now and have been impressed with them all, all of the boxes I have received always come filled with top quality products, alot of them are from other small businesses too which means this box is perfect for supporting lots of small shops in one place. So, I thought this would be perfect for this gift guide. If your struggling for gift ideas I think a gift box like this would be perfect, they come pre packaged in a box tied with ribbon too so it saves time and money buying all the bits and pieces for wrapping, which is a bonus! 

 The one in the photo is their Christmas pamper box which includes some festive socks, a candle, the cutest hot chocolate stirrer, a Christmas tree shaped bath bomb and a big bar of chocolate, which tastes pretty amazing, and it was eaten very quickly by me.. oops!





I love receiving pyjamas for Christmas, especially the cute Disney kind and Primark have some gorgeous sets at the moment for only around £13, which I think is such a good price for what you're getting. Primark do the cosiest pyjamas as this time of year, which are perfect for the cold and rainy weather we've been having recently. I think this would be perfect to gift someone if you're struggling for ideas, as you can never have too many disney pyjamas right?

 They have a massive range of disney sets at the moment including Beauty and the beast, Tinkerbell, Minnie mouse and Bambi too. They also have none Disney sets too, and even Christmas sets which I have already got my eye on and I don't think I'll be able to resist buying them for myself much longer!



The next gift idea is a hamper from Cake Angels, now this will be the perfect gift for someone who loves to bake and make cakes. I would be over the moon to receive a hamper like this for Christmas, as I'm sure many others would be too. You get such a great bundle of products for the price too, so it's perfect for spoiling family members and friends.

The one on their website is a little different to the one in my photo, but it's even better as it includes a copy of a unicorn cook book which sounds amazing, so I definitely recommend having a little nosey on their website if you're stuck for ideas, it's a cake lovers heaven! Or maybe if you can't afford the full hamper or are looking for something a little smaller, I think there single decoration packs would make the cutest stocking fillers for someone.




The next gift will be perfect for those friends and family members that love their makeup, and it's a gorgeous set of Rose gold brushes from Beau Belle brushes. I've had this set myself for a good few months now, and they are so soft and luxurious - I especially love the eye brushes, they make eyeshadow such an easy task, which is so handy if you struggle with eyeshadow like me! Now these are definitely more of a luxury gift, but I wanted to include a range of different prices for everyone in this post!

You can actually get 15% off if you sign up to their mailing list through their site, which gives you a really good saving, so that's definitely worth doing if you're considering buying a set! Aswell as the practicality, they are just gorgeous aren't they? They are definitely the prettiest brushes I own right now, and I am obsessed with the gorgeous rose gold colour!




It's a tradition to include a candle in every gift guide and this is a special one, the packaging is designed by the lovely and amazingly talented Jilly Jilly designs and the candle by Blushberry botanicals. It's in the scent candy cane, I mean what gets more Christmassy than that? Nothing beats that yummy peppermint smell, I just love the scent of candy cane during the festive season and the scent throw of this one comes across really well and strong too with gorgeous scents of caramelized sugar and peppermint... yum?!! This candle costs just £5.50, which is an absolute bargain compared to most candles these days. I love that with this candle your supporting not one but two small businesses, which is amazing. The candle is limited edition however, so be quick if you're considering buying one!




Next up is the Christmas clutch bag bundle from Pink Parcel, it's crammed full with over £100 worth of goodies. Pink parcel are actually a subscription service, that have become very popular this year with so many bloggers! This bag however is limited edition for the festive season, and is such a good price; just £29.99 and for the amount of products you get is pretty amazing. I think this would make such a good present, giving you so much more for your money! Items in the box range from beauty, to skincare and even jewellery.

 I loved the contents of the box myself and I was so impressed with the value for money so I just had to feature it in this gift guide! I love that the bundle allows you to try so many different brands for such an affordable price and I am really hoping they bring out more bundles like this one throughout next year too! 



I couldn't write a gift guide on my blog without including a perfume and this year it's going to be Sarah Jessica Parkers Unspoken, I've tried a few different new scents this year and this one has been by far my favourite and I think this classic scent would be perfect for gifting, if you're struggling to find the right scent! Unspoken is a floriental woody scent, which has key ingredients of pink peppercorn, peony and sandalwood.

The scent is gorgeous, and very luxurious but suitable for day time aswell as the evening too - I definitely recommend trying a sample out if you're in store! Aswell as the scent, I think the packaging of this fragrance has been done perfectly, and really does both look and feel like a luxury perfume. It really is my favourite scent I've tried so far this year, and will definitely be repurchasing it once my bottle runs out!



Next up is a mug, and what's special about this one is you can personalise it with any name and your favourite Mr Men character - I think this would make such a thoughtful gift! They would make great presents for secret santa gifts, as the personalisation adds such a nice touch and you can never have too many mugs, right? Especially when they are this special, they have a huge range of colours and designs so there is definitely something for everyone.

I've also seen people personalise these with 'Little miss blogger' which would be such a nice gift for a blogging friend! You can buy these online or in store, Mr. Men Little Miss now have pop-up personalisation stands at Debenhams across the country this Christmas - including Sheffield, Oxford Street, Manchester, Lakeside, Milton Keynes & Glasgow, which I think will be perfect for some last minute shopping gifts!




One of my favourite brands to discover is Bubble T cosmetics, who embrace the scents and flavours of tea in their products which I think is so unique and quirky. They have some beautiful Christmas gift sets available this year, but my favourite has to be the Christmas cracker bath fizzer set, each cracker is filled with three bath fizzers - so your friends and family will be stocked up on bath bombs for a long time!

 The set includes four scents: Lemon grass and green tea, grape and passion fruit tea, hibiscus and acai berry, and lastly Moroccan mint tea, which is my favourite scent from them! At the moment this set is just £9.99 which I think is such an affordable price for what you're getting - I also love how they are all packaged, I would definitely be more than happy receiving one of these from a friend or family member as a gift for Christmas.





Lastly, is a more expensive item.. but it sure is a gorgeous one! Daniel Wellington have brought out so many gift sets this Christmas and I couldn't resist adding one into my gift guide, I think this would be the perfect luxary gift if you're looking to splash out and spoil a loved one this Christmas. My favourite gift set includes a classic petite Melrose watch and a classic rose gold cuff - which comes all wrapped up in a gorgeous black box tied with red ribbon, perfect to give as it is meaning no need to worry about wrapping it yourself!

 Rose gold has become so popular this past year or two, and I'm sure any rose gold lover would be more than happy to receive this on Christmas day! I think the watch itself is so classy looking, and looks perfect along side the cuff - I haven't stopped wearing them both since I've received them!


I hope you enjoyed this gift guide, it will be my last one for this year so I hope it comes in handy for any of you that are stuck for gift ideas this christmas, and helps you to find some last minute gifts. This is actually going to be my last post before Christmas and maybe even the new year too, so I hope you all have an amazing Christmas if you celebrate it, and a happy New year too when it comes! I can't believe we will be in 2018 in less than a month, this year really has just flown by!
