I love this time of year, everyone is a little more relaxed and happy with the knowledge that the Christmas break is coming. It’s filled with festive cheer and Christmas songs on repeat. Gift buying can be a little stressful though as finding the perfect gift can be a bit of a chore.
Here are just some gift ideas I’ve put together to give you some inspiration.
For the home
There’s lots to celebrate and enjoy over the festive season so these LSA Champagne glasses from Red Candy would make a great gift. The set includes four hand-painted flutes in different metallic shades so you don’t mix your glass with someone else!
Christmas may be all about spending time with loved ones but time out for yourself is important too.
This SPA Candle from Parks would be a welcome gift for anyone in your family. The SPA range from Parks are therapeutic and designed to soothe, de-stress, restore and revive.
It can’t just be me that find men so hard to buy for? However, they all have use for a wallet. This one Zippo Bi-fold wallet looks smart and is made from genuine leather and is reasonably priced too.
This insulated water bottle from Kleen Kanteen would be ideal for use in the gym or even in the office. It’s designed to keep contents hot for up to 20 hours and cold for up to 50 hours and had a chip-resistant coating too.
One of the best things about the Christmas period is being able to buy your favourite products in beautiful gift sets. I’m a big fan of Baylis and Harding and they have a fantastic range of gifts ideal for your nearest and dearest to pamper themselves with.
Have a look at just some of the range below.
With a fun festive design, this Beaticology Rudolph Luxury Foot Treat Gift set would make a great stocking filler. Includes a moisturising foot lotion and a pair of fluffy socks.
Have a relaxing bath with this Mulberry & Mistletoe fragranced Bauble Bath Bubbles.
The Baylis & Harding Fuzzy Duck Cotswold Floral Luxury Wrapped Soaps Set are wrapped beautifully in a contemporary design and would make a lovely Secret Santa gift or stocking filler.
Luxury fragranced double wick candle with the scent of sloe Gin would make a lovely gift for friends and family.
With a fun unicorn design that will appeal to kids, this set contains 5 bath fizzers and a jar of 50g bath salts.
Our skin tends to suffer in the colder months and they can become dry and chapped. The O’Keefe’s Skincare Giftset offers guaranteed relief for dry, cracked skin and would make a lovely gift, especially for those who use their hands a lot in their day jobs.
Christmas isn’t Christmas without festive pyjamas and now, finally, the trend to have matching family pajamas has caught on over here in the UK. Shinesty have a fantastic selection of holiday pajamas and outfits.
Family’s can be tricky to buy for so why not think outside of the box and try a gift experience that they can all enjoy together? Red Letter Days offer a huge range of gift experiences to suit all budgets such as Entry to The Tower of London and night’s stay at Novotel. An experience like this would allow your family to spend a fun-filled day learning about London’s iconic castle, see the crown jewels and meet Beefeaters before retiring for the evening in comfort at the modern 4-star Novotel London City.
Food & Drink
Christmas is all about overindulging and enjoying good food and drink. Guylian Chocolates are made using the finest Belgian chocolate and 100% pure cocoa butter. I am pretty sure these would be a welcome gift for anyone.
We all love a tipple, especially at Christmas. If you know someone who loves gin then this beautiful bottle of Mermaid Gin that is plastic-free and 100% recyclable would make a fantastic gift.
This DIY Gingerbread House Kit from Biscuiteers would make a great gift for those that don’t have the time to make their own gingerbread house from scratch as it contains everything you need to assemble and decorate one. It’s a fun activity to do with kids over the Christmas holidays and once decorated, eating your creation is, of course, the best part!
For those that can’t live without their phone, phone accessories would go down well. Both the selfie light and phone fan from Menkind would make great stocking fillers.
Gifting clothes may not be your first choice as a gift – especially leggings but trust me, these leggings from Love Leggings are super comfy. They’re none see-through and made from high-quality fabrics. I think everyone should own a pair!
