Christmas Gift Guide 2015

Thursday 10 December 2015

Christmas shopping is my worst nightmare. No matter how much I know people, buying presents is truly stressful. I'll be honest, I haven't bought anything yet, so I've been spending a little too much time on the internet. However in my own search for presents I came across some cracking ideas, so I had to share with you, if you are struggling too.

HERO4 Silver

The Go Pro has become quite my friend lately. I've literally just come back from Skiing and I don't know what I would have done without it, as there is no way I could have taken a huge SLR on the slopes. This really does make the perfect present for any travel lover as it's water proof, snow proof, fall proof. It really is so handy for capturing those special moments.

Golden Demi Clutch


How unbelivably gorgeous is this clutch? I just fell in love with the rings at the top and the semi- circle design is unusual. It would make the perfect present for the glam godess in your life. You know, that sophisticated friend who always looks so well put together. She'll be beaming more than the light off this clutch.

Pure merino wool crochet chunky scarf


Statement scarves are huge this winter, and as a whole we are moving towards more independent designers, which is why this scarf is perfect.

Knitted by hand, this scarf is made from pure merino wool, which is one of the most softest, warm and high end types of wool out there. Did you know merino wool's unique active fibres react to changes in body temperature helping you stay warm when the weather is cold. Now that's a genius scarf! 

It can be wrapped around the neck a huge 5 times for that bold look, or worn long for a simpler look. I can imagine this with an on trend duster coat for that perfect winter chic look.

Double Doctor Who TARDIS Duvet Cover Set 


Oh em gee. A TARDIS duvet. Need I say more? Everyone has someone in their life who loves Dr Who, and so what better present than this?

Eat Like a Londoner, An Insider's Guide to Dining Out

Trust me, London eating can be a right pain in the butt. Luckily Eat Like a Londoner is an insider's guide that sorts the great from the merely good, and covers every occasion, from those quick pitstop bites, right to a blow-out date. 

With over a 100 places features, it really is invaluable, whether you are visiting London or a resident. Give this to the wannabe food critic in your life. 

Small Box Club - 3 Month Subscription


Forget beauty box subscriptions, it has to be about the chocolate subscriptions. You can get larger sizes or longer months, but this small version will kick things off nicely as a gift. 

Each box of 9 fresh chocolates & truffles include such beauties as Melting Milk truffle - Madagascan vanilla-infused fresh cream truffle blended with milk chocolate & rolled in curly milk chocolate flakes (Gold Great Taste Award 2010) or Chilli Tickle truffle - Gentle chilli-infused fresh Dorset cream & dark chocolate, dipped in milk chocolate & dusted in cinnamon icing sugar (Academy of Chocolate Bronze medal 2005). I mean we are not talking basic here.

I think this is perfect for busy mums as it will really perk up their day once they finally get the kids off to bed and sit down for some well deserved R&R.

Speakeasy Underground Cocktails

Who doesn't dream of sitting round in a gorgeous flapper dress, sipping some fabulous cocktail whilst jazz is playing? Surely not just me? Whilst we might not have the era or maybe even the bar, fear not as you can be fabulous at home now. Even if you just drink in your PJ's on your sofa. 

Speakeasy is a Prohibition-style cocktail book featuring over 200 cocktail recipes and each comes with beautiful 1920s-inspired illustrations. Give this to that friend who loves to throw a party. I can guarantee the next one will be amazing.

We are not all made of money, so sometime's we need a few smaller present's.USDA Certified Organic natural lip balms from Badger Balm are incredibly mustering as they contain olive oil and beeswax. No petroleum, artificial colours, flavours, or sweeteners, these are natures way of heeling your smackers.
