Christmas is my all-time favourite time of the year, with the movies, the tinsel and the eggnog (ok I actually hate eggnog but you get the idea). I love buying presents for people, carefully choosing gifts that will make their eyes light up as they tear away at the paper.
But when it comes to myself, I never know what to ask for. I am normally really boring and ask for vouchers – not that vouchers are a bad present at all, but it is always nice to unwrap a proper parcel isn’t it?
If you are like me, struggle to think of things that will make your eyes light up, then this gift guide is for you. Or if you are looking for a gift for that special lady in your life then read on, these are all winners!
This bag is so cute and SO true! With shops asking for 5p a bag it is always handy to have a bag rolled up in your handbag. This one is from Cley and sums up my life perfectly!
Stationary is always a winner and making it personalised over at Pen Heaven makes it all the more special. Choose a lovely new notepad or planner for the new year – go on, treat yourself!
Pampering is something I am going to try and do more for myself in the new year and this cracker from Time Bomb is the perfect start! I have a few of their products already and they are just brilliant!
Taking the pampering a step further – why not treat yourself to a weekly facial? This pamper pack from 7th Heaven comes with a selection of masks and accessories to get you started.
Once you’ve pampered yourself, you want to make sure you are de-stressed too. I adore this candle from Wax Lyrical. It smells gorgeous, filling your home with a relaxing scent to keep you calm.
I suffer with SAD and know plenty of other people who could do with this amazing light from Lumie. The Vitamin L light is something I have been using for the last few weeks and after my 30 minute a day stint, I always feel like I’ve had a real boost of sunshine. It is like a natural pick-me-up alternative to a cup of coffee.
Sticking with gadgets, this is from JML and is great for busy mums. The Simply Straight combines a brush and straighteners and leaves your hair smooth and stylish – avoiding the need for a mum-bun every day of the week!
This bag is just gorgeous and would you believe it is a changing bag? It is from Idaho Jones and comes with its own changing mat as well as plenty of handy compartments for all of the bits and bobs you need for travelling with a child. My favourite bit though? The laptop section – perfect for working mamas on the go!
Jewellery should be compulsory for Christmas – it is so shiny and sparkly, I love it! These are all from jewellerybox and as you can see, are the infinity symbol. It is a special symbol for me as I always tell my children that I love them all the way to infinity. They have so many loves pieces, there is something for everyone.
I think this is one of my favourite ever finds. Isn’t it amazing? It is by Peachie Pie Designs and can be found over on Micro Mkt. All you need to do is send them a photo of your pet and it will be turned into your very own portrait. I adore it!!
I love this mug from McLaggan Smith Mugs – you can personalise it with any wording and mine even has ‘Decluttering Motherhood’ on the handle!
I hope that has given you some ideas!
Have a fantastic Christmas!
I was gifted the items in this gift guide but I only feature products I love and all thoughts are my own.
