So you know I love buying Christmas gifts for people, sometimes in can be tough to find the right thing though.
As I mentioned earlier, I love the idea of giving something that someone wants, something they need and then a little something to eat or drink. It keeps the gift giving under control and means the recipient gets a lovely mix of things.
The Mio MiVue 618 is a handy little Dash Cam that retails at a great value £99.00 but still features extreme HD recording, safety camera updates, and lane departure warning system. It is easy to fit, not to bad to set up all the technical bits and really easy to use. It provides you with peace of mind and could be invaluable if you are in an accident. A perfect Christmas gift.
Pink Parcel is definitely on the need list for us women, it’s a subscription service box which coincides with your monthly cycle. It’s also something I would never think to get for myself but having tried a box out for myself I am in love and it certainly improves things! Pink Parcel has partnered with a number of the leading beauty and lifestyle products ranging from skin care brands to restaurants as well as supporting the more local up and coming names.
The new Rebel Tech Kit from Sugru.com is only £10 and it is £10 well spent, Once you have Sugru in your life, there will be no going back. The Rebel Tech Kit is lifehack heaven and the perfect gift for anybody who loves a good idea. Packed full of small DIY projects to help with everything from improving the sound on your speakers, fixing fraying cables and securing your iPad anywhere it gives smart technology a whole new meaning.
Christmas just wouldn’t be Christmas without a new mug. We all need them and a festive one is an essential so why not try Doris & Co. They are a British company devoted to making English creamware pottery and home wares using old fashioned methods traditional to England. The shapes and designs are based on Georgian or Early Industrial shapes, from the time that pottery and home wares were still made by hand. No vintage kitchen is complete without a Doris & Co piece.
PowerHealth’s beard oils are the perfect Christmas gift for any man. At only £8.99 they’re affordable, natural and super effective! It’s great for any length beard, from stubble to full on locks. It smells amazing and is nourishing, helps stop itching and even helps to heal any nicks or cuts. You can choose from the fresh Citrus scent with Bergamot & Lemon or the warming blend with Balck Pepper & Cyprus. A must have for the bearded chap in your life.
Whilst we’re chatting about beards the Braun Beard Trimmer will allow you to be perfectly groomed, with easy to use precision dial you can set the trimmer heights in 0.5mm steps meaning you can have the perfect beard quickly and simply. It’s fully washable and can be used corded or cordless. A lovely gift.
The new Gillette Fusion ProShield Chill holds cooling technology within the lubrastrip and is released while taking a shaving stroke. The FlexBall means it moves smoothly with your faces contours and there is the benefit of lubrastrips on both sides of the blades. So if you like to be clean shaven, this will help you do it easily and comfortably. With an RRP of £12 it’s affordable and would be very useful.
Any parent will know just how many onesies you need for your little one, so extras are always gratefully received. I love the Award Winning ones from Zippy Baby. The designs feature popular characters and can be found at Tesco Direct, Fenwick, more than one hundred independent retailers across the UK and online at www.zippysuit.com. The best part is the zip. No pesky poppers that you can never match up. It makes them quicker and easier to get on and off, and any little thing that makes life that bit easier for parents is a great gift in my books.
New bedding is a great gift. Especially for kids. Do not underestimated how many times you will need to change the sheets. It’s not just normal usage with them. It’s stolen snacks smushed into the covers, over excited colouring antics and lets not even get into when they are ill. So a fun bright set of new bedding featuring their favourite character is not only a lovely gift but practical as well. You ever know it may even be the deciding factor on them actually going to bed and getting some sleep after all the Christmas excitement. There are so many you can pick from Character World, including Trolls, you’re bound to find the one you want.
On my personal ‘need’ list is a new pair of Ankle Boots. Shoes are always a need thing, they are footwear and practical, so needed. I have fallen in love with these fab Emilio Luca X ankle boots from Brantano. They are smart enough for work, comfy enough for a lot of walking and would look great when I nipped into the pub after the long walk.
Disclosure – I was sent these items to see I would consider featuring them in a gift guide. I have only included items I genuinely love and recommend.
