Inside: Christmas gift ideas for the men & women in your life (inc. gifted items)
The older I get the more difficult I find it to think of gifts for people (and myself!). We are in an age where people seem to have everything they need and will buy things as and when they want them, rather than waiting.
I wanted to share some of the items that I discovered for this year – hopefully, they will inspire you for some of the people you need to shop for.
Coffee Advent Calendar
If you know a coffee lover then this is the advent calendar for them! Beanies Flavour Coffee Advent Calendar comes packed with a reusable cup, followed by 22 days of various flavoured coffees to try. The flavours are such that you don’t need to add sugar/sweeteners to them and they are only 2 calories per cup! RRP £20
12 Days of Advent
Buying for men can be so difficult, can’t it? The MAD Beauty 12 Days of Advent Calendar comes packed with bath and body items to give them a little luxury from Christmas Day and the 11 days after. RRP £14.99
Escape Room, The Game
Have you done an Escape Room before? They are both brilliant and terrifying in the same measure. The Escape Room Game is great as it gives all of the fun and excitement of the experience, without the fear that you may indeed get stuck inside forever! RRP £30
Chef in the family? Love to make your own recipes? This is such a lovely idea and is something that can be handed down from generation to generation. The My Family Cookbook comes with pages to add in your own recipes, with drawings, photos and ratings for each recipe. RRP £19.99
Never know what to cook? The Cook’s Diary has an A5 week to view spread, with weekly recipes to inspire you to try new things, as well as planning pages and key dates for the year. It would make for such a lovely gift for anyone who loves to cook! RRP £9.99
A New Book
Pivotal is the new book from Nikki Vallance and it is a real page-turner. “
“Is it self-determination or destiny? How many doors does one person open in a lifetime? When you pass through a door, does your life change forever? Or, do you have power over who you become through the choices you make?”
A great stocking filler for the avid reader! RRP £7.99
I love a new face cream, it makes for a great gift for someone who loves to have the little luxuries in life but may never treat themselves throughout the year. Olay have introduced the Regenerist Whip and it truly is light and fluffy. A must-have for the beauty lover! RRP £23.32
Bee Good Goodies
Don’t you just love when you see a wild meadow along the side of the road? Why not give the gift of a meadow planting pack to someone? Bee Good Plant a Meadow gift sets contain 3 x lip balms, hand cream, and a seedball tin to scatter in your garden. The perfect gift for nature lovers! RRP £25
Huski Home make products using rice husks and they are brilliant. Their reusable cups are non-toxic, BPA and silicone-free and double-walled to keep drinks hot or cold. The cups are also lightweight and biodegradable – such a great idea! Perfect for everyone! RRP £11.99
This is such a great accessory for anyone who needs to use their phone a lot but also wants to be hands-free. Want to watch a movie? Instagram stories? Have a FaceTime with friends? Just pop your phone into the Lazy Arm from Prezzybox and get your hands back! Fits easily onto most surfaces. RRP £12.99
These would make for a great gift for a best man as well as a Christmas gift, wouldn’t they? These football and a football boot cufflinks from The Present Finder will add a little personalisation to any smart shirt occasion. They also come in an old-style football case – such a great gift! RRP £24.99
Restaurants have switched to paper straws, but how about you at home? I personally don’t like paper straws as they very quickly turn to mush and that’s why I love the idea of washable straws! These glass straws from VASO are sturdy and easy to clean. Plus, they look really stylish, don’t they? RRP £11.99
I love a personalised gift, don’t you? And I mean who wouldn’t want a personalised gin bottle? This gin from The Personalised Gift Shop comes in a silk-lined gift box and would make for a gorgeous gift! RRP £29.99
Do you know what a Lazy Susan is? I’ve always wanted one! It goes in the centre of the table and can turn around – allowing everyone to spin to access the different things on the board. This personalised Lazy Susan is from The Gift Experience and is a bread, meat and cheese board! Perfect for Christmas! RRP £26.99
Know someone who is always on their feet? Someone who walks a lot and complains of aching feet all of the time? This foot massager from Prezzybox is compact enough to not take up too much space but effective in easing tired and aching feet. RRP £9,99
I hope that has given you some inspiration for others this Christmas as well as a few things for yourself!
We were gifted items in this gift list but as always I only share things that I love and would use anyway.
