Christmas Gift Ideas

Hey Everyone! 

Since Christmas is vastly approaching, we all need to be prepared.  I've been embarrassingly organised this year when it comes to gift giving and wrapping.  I must have finished shopping about four weeks ago...

For those of you who struggle when it comes to buying presents and finding the right gift, I've found a few ideas that would suit different personalities.  


The Girly Girl

1. YSL Teint Touche Eclat Rose Gold Primer

I think this primer looks so lovely and luxurious.  I'm yet to try it myself but have it on my own Christmas wish list.  This is the perfect gift to buy for any girly girl as primer can be used on its own (for example, my Mum doesn't wear foundation but I know she would still use this alone), or can be used under makeup.  Its slightly pricy at £30.50 but if you're just buying this as a single gift I think its perfect.

2. Ciaté Tree Trinkets


For a slightly smaller stocking filler these Tree Trinkets are adorable.  A little extra decoration for your tree and a little sparkle for your nails.  I'm almost 100% sure that Ciaté done these last Christmas but you can hardly blame them for bringing them out again this year as they really do make a lovely little gift retailing at £8 each.

The Gadget Guru

1. Smartphone Projector

This little projector allows you to convert your small smartphone into a large projection picture!  I think this idea is so cool and cute.  I would love to curl up on a cold night and project a movie onto the wall and feel so retro.  This is perfect for those who love novelty accessories for their gadgets and is available at £15.95.

Smartphone Projector - Available at Not On The High Street


2. Apple Juice Home Charger

This is more novelty headed for gadget lovers.  Apple Juice.  Get it.  An iPhone charger that gives your phone the juice it needs to run in a lovely carton.  Don't worry if your Gadget buddy doesn't have an iPhone as there are different juices available for different makes.  The only difference is the pun doesn't really make sense.  For £9.95 it's not a bad deal. 

Apple Juice - Available at John Lewis

The Book Lover

1. Classic Book Cover Diary

These diaries for 2015 make a lovely gift for book lovers.  With the option of ten classic covers, I'm sure you'd be able to find a favourite for your recipient.  My personal favourite is the Great Gatsby cover.  These diaries are available from £16.95.

Find these at Not On The High Street

2. Once Upon A Time Bookmark


This makes an adorable little gift for those who love to read.  I would have this myself as a decoration just to stick out of a book and appear elegantly.  This is on sale for £10 and is available in different varieties. 

Also available from Not On The High Street

The Food Fanatics 

1. Cottage Delight - Steak Night In

For those who love to try and experiment in the kitchen or even just love home cooked meals, these little sets are fantastic.  There is a variety of options available from curries to thai so there is something to suit all taste pallets.  I personally love the idea of the steak one as I can be quite fussy when it comes to foods so sticking to classics is a must for me.  This steak set is on sale for £16 at John Lewis.

2. Festive Cheer Hamper

There's nothing like a classic hamper to bring the spirt of Christmas alive.  This one is particular is festive by bringing in Christmas Day classics, from the soup to the cake, Marks and Spencers got this one right.  This hamper retails for £30.

The Sporty Spice ( Or Just The Sporty)

1. Personalised Referee Whistle

If I knew my Dad wouldn't blow the roof of with this thing, I would probably get him one.  Perfect for those who shout and scream at the TV and yell "COME ON REF, ARE YOU BLIND?!".  

Find this at Getting Personal


2. Mini Foosball Table 


I know the majority of us would love to get a full sized one of these for the sports fan in our lives, but the reality is that they are pretty pricy.  Until you win the lottery, why not settle for this mini table top version?  Still as much fun.

Find these foosball tables at Sports Direct
