It’s the most wonderful time of the year! December is HERE. Let’s Christmas shop!
I really wanted to do a gift guide post this year, as I really enjoy buying gifts and found some presents that I absolutely LOVE and think your loved ones will too. There is stuff for children, parents, grandparents, friends, well everyone really!
So Merry Christmas, here we go…
Above we have…
£14 and currently on 3 for 2 at Boots, she has had a bit of bad press recently, but I like her range @ Boots and they make excellent gifts. This Jot pad is great, it is a nice big size, and very pretty. It is of good quality – so it isn’t going to drop to pieces in your bag. The perfect item to organise your 2018!
Fearne Cotton, Cook Eat Love
£7.99 on Amazon, I LOVE this cook book. I have made so many cakes & savoury items from this book, it isn’t just a one recipe wonder! Importantly they are healthy recipes that you can share with your children, excellent gift for the cooks in your life.
Giovanna Fletcher, Some Kind of Wonderful
£6.49 on Amazon, this heart warming book is perfect for the Christmas period. If you haven’t read any Giovanna before this is a great place to start. Great stocking filler.
Joe Wicks, Cook for Family & Friends
£7.99 on Amazon, I think I have all his books now, they are all good and this one doesn’t disappoint. Bigger recipes for families and dinner parties. Again healthy cooking but still absolutely delicious. Bargain at £7.99. This would make a great gift for anyone looking to impress in the kitchen with minimal effort (or to drop a hint that someone should be cooking more).
M&S Shortbread Tin
£5, this is my number one bargain as it is full of surprises…
Up next we have…
Zoella Stationary Bento Box
£12.50 and currently 3 for 2 at Boots, it contains a notepad, ruler, pencils, rubber, sharpener & tape. It is a must have for any stationary lover. Decorate your work desk with these golds & greens. Do you have a stationary fanatical friend? Then here you go.
Urban Veda Ritual Travel Set
£11.99 @ Urban Veda. All their stuff is vegan friendly and they currently have 3 for 2 across all their gift sets on their website. A great travel set for a bit of luxury whilst you travel. **Stocking filler alert**
Kate Spade Thermal Mug
£15, is there anything better than Kate Spade stationary & accessories? Nope. The striped gold mug (flask) is ideal for commuters. It also brightens up a dull desk.
M&S Paddington & the Christmas visitor
Only £3 and £2 goes to the NSPCC Childline! So it’s cheap and you’re giving to charity. Winner. Great gift for your friends children.
£23.95 You are going to be hearing more about this from me as Hallie LOVES it, so it deserves it’s own post. There is very little time that she isn’t on this balance bike. It is so light & bright, we just shove it in the car wherever we go. If you are looking for a balance bike this Christmas for your little one, look no further! Suitable from 18 months.
Early Learning Centre Vegetable (cutable)
£14 Crate of cut and play fruit & vege. This is a great gift for the little ones. Not only are they fun, they will be learning whilst playing. Also ideal if you are introducing a play kitchen to your toddler. Great price for what you get.
That’s not my snowman
£5.24 on Amazon, who doesn’t love these books, the whole collection is great. Touch & feel book and don’t forget to play spot the mouse (he is there on every page)! Hallie has already received this as a gift and she loves it.
So there are some ideas! I am about 3/4 of the way through my shopping (I hope), so going to go and read other gift guides!
Merry Christmas to all and to all a goodnight!
