Every year Mr F asks me what I would like for Christmas and I never know what to ask for. As a woman and a mum, I have always put myself last but I am finally making more of an effort to find time for myself. Hopefully this gift guide reflects that and will give you inspiration too – either for yourself or for the lady in your life!
Lumie Bodyclock ACTIVE 250 – £99.95
You should start every day feeling great, but early starts and in my case frequent night wakings can mean you are less than happy when your alarm goes off. If you suffer from SAD or just get a little bit down in the winter months, then you need one of these amazing clocks from Lumie. I have been using one for years now and it truly makes a difference to my mood. The Bodyclock ACTIVE 250 has various wake up calls, including birdsong and the radio. It also has a sunset option, perfect for helping you drift off to sleep each night.
Time Bomb skincare from £24
Tiredness can show in your face and especially around the eyes (massive eye bags anyone?). The Complexion Cocktail serum from Time Bomb is so refreshing and leaves you feeling so much better! I have been using it along side the Glory Days day cream for the last few weeks and I adore them both. I discovered their Youth Juice last year and it is still one of my favourite products in the whole world!
Bio Essence BB Cream from Janiro – RRP £
If you are short on time in the morning but still want to put a little makeup on then BB cream is an absolute gem of a product. It evens out skin tone and leaves you looking fresh-faced for the day. This one is from Janiro and is a 10 in 1 product- can’t ask for much more can you?
Babyliss Big Hair Rotating Styler- RRP £46.99 although is currently £30 on Amazon.
I love going to the hairdressers, they always style my hair beautifully! I don’t have the time or patience to recreate the same look at home but this nifty styler does the job for you! The head rotates while blowing out hot air to give you that salon style big hair effect.
Rose gold Krug Baümen from ChrisElli Watch – £179
I am all about the accessories, making that little extra effort to style my outfit every day. A watch is a practical accessory but no reason why it can’t be gorgeous too! Rose gold is still very much the in thing right now so why not treat yourself? If you’d like one for yourself then I have a 75% discount code for you!! Simply put KATY75 in at the checkout to redeem on Krug Baümen watches (excludes sale items).
Chrysalis Christmas bracelet from WatchShop.com
How gorgeous is this? I have always loved bracelets but often the clasp will break and I’ll end up losing it. This is a simple design but means it will stay on my wrist where it belongs. A hint of Christmas to it too but with winters lasting for months these days it will last beyond the festive season.
Flowers from Beards and Daisies – various prices
Flowers brighten up a room and can lift a mood instantly. Aren’t these beautiful? Beards and Daisies also deliver letterbox flowers, which fit through the letterbox – perfect for when you know someone won’t be home to take delivery. Such a beautifully presented bouquet, with an almost vintage feel to them – just gorgeous!
Yankee Candles – RRP £8.99 each
I light candles every day now, it is all part of my quest to bring more hygge to my life. Yankee candles are the best out there aren’t they? Festive Cocktail is my scent of choice at the moment- sums up Christmas in a jar!!
This Mama Does Cards – £9.95
Want something different? I adore these cards as they are a fun alternative to the baby cards you will have seen around. I am definitely needing ‘Up All Night’ at the moment but I am trying to make more use of ‘Me Time’. Which cards sum up your days right now?
Olverum Bath Oil – from £26
Some days leave you feeling stressed don’t they? Olverum is a luxurious blend of essential oils, which eases away tension from both mind and body. All of the oils absorb into the skin too so no oily residue is left behind. I am betting you never make time for a relaxing bath, so this is the perfect gift!
Dove Derma Spa- Available at Boots, starting from £4.99
Dove have always made the best skincare products, but they have now brought out their Derma Spa range. These gorgeous lotions and oils contain Cell-Moisturisers to leave you feeling pampered and moisturised, rivalling any spa experience!
Scholl Velvet Smooth Party Pedi Collection– RRP £69.99 from Boots although currently £39.99 if you want to grab a bargain!
I have always neglected my feet but these gorgeous gift packs from Scholl will leave your feet feeling perfectly smooth. They are teaming up with Nailberry to give your toes a great colour too!
So there we are, a great selection of gifts to ensure you are pampered and cared for, from head to toe!
