In the run up to the festive period I wanted to make a headstart and create a Christmas Gift Guide, to help inspire and share some fab products I have found. Also the perfect opportunity to give my husband a giant nudge!!
Here are some of the fab items I will be adding to my Christmas list this year….
1- Scaramanga Accessories:
There are so many treats over on the Scaramanga website it’s hard to choose, but I have gone for Love Heart keyring, as I think this makes a great stocking filler for any one at only £6. It’s made from full grain buffalo leather and can be personalised with a gold embossed initial also.
I also love the matching Ladies Leather Purse in distressed leather than will be always be timeless and look even better as it is used and ages. I love that it has a secure zip and lots of pockets for all the cards and coins.
2- Prices Candles– If you are looking for a really affordable candle range that still smells beautiful then I would highly recommend checking out Prices Candles. For their boxed candles are only £8 each and they have a number of different types, styles, and scents available, and free delivery on orders over £40 so definitely some Christmas bargains to be had!! They have a number of seasonal scents, including Gingerbread, seasonal delights and enchanted forest, and a new luxury range that has just launched. Their Warm Cashmere scent is definitely my favourite of theirs!
3- Manhattan TV Freeview Play Recorder– This one is a really useful gift that you will reap the benefit for all throughout the year. We have recently been trialing this box as we have been shelling out a fortune each month for Sky and now I have been using this, I have no idea why! The one off cost of the box is less than two months of payments we were originally making. It has over 85 channels and records over 300 hours of TV so you won’t miss anything, you can record entire series, pause and rewind live TV and even record two programmes at once (everything we were paying Sky for!) Currently retailing around £169.99 from amazon and other retailers.
4- Gaston Luga Backpack – The Parlan backpack is not only super useful, functional it’s also super stylish and beautifully made- what’s not to love?! They also have other styles to suit any budget and size needed and they come in so many colourways! The Parlan is currently £89
‘Made from comfortable, lightweight and water-resistant nylon, durable enough go with you anywhere. The inside is compact, but still with enough room for all your daily necessities, and a special compartment that holds up to A5-sized documents. It’s designed with a comfortable fit, and security in mind, with a hidden back pocket where you can store your most precious valuables.’
They have kindly given me the code: THEBUXTONS to get you 15% off any order also!! so head over to the Gaston Luga website for a peek.
5- Heart and Home Home Fragrance Wax Melt Collection – This wax melt collection contains 6 wax melts containing 4 different fragrances; Frosted Apple spice, Christmas Tree, Winter Wonderment & Home for Christmas. The perfect stocking filler gift for a loved one or for yourself in the run up to Christmas to get you in the Christmas spirit! These retail at £9.99 and can be found in lots of independent stockists or direct on the website.
6 – Yes I want it Craft kit to make your own llama or Sausage dog! Yes you did read that right, who doesn’t love a llama or sausage dog?? Yes I want it have created mini craft kits to create your own mini models with modelling dough making them the most cute happy gift set. Sometimes it’s nice to just get creative and complete a little project and with these kits its totally doable and anyone can have a go. Which one would you choose??
7. Place in Print– This website sells some fab ideas ideas, including prints of certain places, so perfect if you want remember a special occasion or event you can order a print of the area where it took place. I love this Shropshire print of all the local areas around where we live! They also sell a number of gift items including, books, cards, stationary, clothing and more. These items will also make great wedding and anniversary presents. The website makes it super easy to navigate as you can search areas individually or whole counties, and also search fro types of products.
8. Artsy Doormats – If I can combine a bit of luxury/ prettiness with the practicalities of things you need in everyday life, then what’s not to love? Artsy Doormats do just that, they have a huge range of doormats in different shapes and sizes to fit every door way, inside and out, then on top of that the designs are so pretty- or witty depending on what you want! And if you still can’t find one you like, they can personalise one and make it exactly how you want!!! What’s not love, so this one is a perfectly practical gift that i wanted to add on here.
9. Honora – They have the most beautiful, extensive arrange of gifts for you and the home that it’s hard to choose just one item. For me items for the home always come first so i have chosen to share about this beautiful tea light centrepiece. The Sol Tealight holder will definitely wow on the Christmas table and at any dinner parties you may host, its stylish and sleek in its design so won’t take up lots of table space, and I like that it is low down, making conversation over the table easy., instead of peeking around a large candelabra. This sells at £39.99 and they have so many more beautiful items to suit every style and budget, so you are sure to find something you like!
10. LL Loves Jewellery will make anyone smile this Christmas! LL Loves is a handmade collection of stylish & beautiful jewellery made from 925 Sterling Silver & Semi Precious beads
My favourite item on the website has to be the Bee designs, as they are designed around ‘ Bee Strong’ and we all have moments where we need to remind ourselves of this. This bracelet is called The Amara, meaning eternal. Bee Strong, something we all need to be reminded of from time to time. May it be in times of hardship or when we need a gentle nudge.
You can even get the matching Bee earrings to complement the bracelet. They are made from sterling silver so are beautiful quality that will last.
