basically what I’d want to receive…
I have compiled a lil’ gift guide to give you some inspiration on the gift front of Christmas. I know there are hundreds of gift guides out there but this is mine! Everything is mainly a big hint to my boyfriend. He doesn’t even read my blog so this is pretty futile but I hope you enjoy it none the less. Everything mentioned is cruelty free of course. I hope this gives you a few ideas and you maybe see something here you want to treat yourself to.
For The Girlfriend
This was pretty easy to do I’m not going to lie. The number one thing I’m hoping for this Christmas is a really cosy dressing gown. My 2009 Topshop gown is looking a little worse for wear to say the least. I would love one from The White Company like this or this deliciously soft one from M&S. I’ve compiled 9 items, seen below, that I would love to find sat under the tree. I’m not spoilt right?
For The Boyfriend/Brother
It’s a pretty testing task to find something decent for my brother. Every year my sister and I scratch our heads in defeat, he’s so difficult! Normally, I end on getting him a couple of my favourite books from the year but this year I want to be a little more daring. I love love love the Alexander McQueen cufflinks, my boyfriend would love them. I don’t think you can go wrong either with a really comfy pair of Nikes.
For The Vegan
Just remember no wool, silk, leather and only vegan friendly beauty products and you’re good to go! My favourite vegan brand is Neal’s Yard. Any of their products would make an amazing gift. I love their Rose and Geranium Body Polish, it smells beautiful and exfoliates your skin to perfection.
Cookbooks just makes the best presents too. Lucy Watson from Made In Chelsea has recently brought out a vegan cookbook called ‘Feed Me Vegan’ which is filled with delicious recipes. I always recommend Niomi Smart’s cookbook ‘Eat Smart’ to friends. It’s really simple to follow and is filled with beautiful pictures.
For The Book Worms
Taschen books always look great on coffee tables or bookshelves. This Stanley Kubrick Archives book is amazing and would look great in any living room.
For The Fitness Fanatics
I’ve picked out 9 items I think would go down well with anyone who is into their fitness. I also love love love Sweaty Betty leggings, they do such an amazing array of colours and patterns. They would make a super luxe and beautiful gift.
For The Impossible To Get For
There’s always one person that’s difficult. I don’t think you can go wrong with any of the below. These Ban.do Compliment Pencils are very cute and colourful, they’re fun and a bit different. I also think a good hand cream like this By Terry one is a nice present for the colder months as is the Aromatherapy Associates De-Stress Bath Oil. Who doesn’t like a warm deliciously smelling bath?
For The Boozy Bestfriend
This goes out to the people who really love their booze. Around Christmas time my body is probably about 70% red wine and the rest mince pies. I love all these items, they all make really beautiful and fancy gifts to give to your beloveds.
For The Beauty Obsessed
Finding a present for someone I love is a really fun thing for me. Buying beautiful well made products that will last for ages is where it’s at. I think the RMS Living Luminizer makes a gorgeous gift as would anything from The Grown Alchemist. I like to choose things where the packaging looks really fancy and special.
