Luxury Christmas gifts for her

Can you believe that another year has almost passed and it’s time to really start thinking about what Christmas gifts. I am going to be working on a couple of gift guides this year, one for him and one for her.

I love to buy Christmas gifts, finding something special that the person you are buying it for will love. When gifts are bought for me I normally like items that I wouldn’t buy for myself, a little treat that I just wouldn’t splash out on. It doesn’t always have to be bespoke jewellery, although it would be nice.

I have put together some fabulous items that the lady in your life will love to find under the Christmas tree.

Home

There is nothing like breakfast in bed, and with this absolutely gorgeous hand made tray from Vincent Trading, means that my Hubby can treat me to breakfast in bed. Making a this beautiful tray at gift that will keep giving. The finish on the tray is just beautiful, Vincent Trading are based in Devon and I could happily fill my home with their beautiful hand made items, mini tables, chopping boards, benches and dinning tables. It’s the perfect size for a pot of tea and maybe a slice of cake.

Sass and Belle are one of my go to brands for gifts, they have someone for everyone. Having bought my niece and daughter numerous items from their unicorn range. I have chosen this gorgeous Seagrass basket with little grey pom poms, I have wanted one for ages, it is going to look fabulous with my blankets in. I have a bit of a jewellery obsession so this cute little gold honey bee hive jewellery tray with bees on is just gorgeous, I love bee’s and I am really thinking about having a hive in the garden. Both perfect gifts for the lady in your life.

During the winter months I love nothing more than snuggling under a blanket watching a film, so a blanket for me is the perfect gift. Secret project make a secret pillow, it is basically a blanket that folds up to make a pillow. It’s so warm and cuddly, plus looks lovely on the sofa. The Secret Project is a a project that is empowering women all over the world to produce items which helps them with financial independence. The Secret Project make lots of different items each of which I would be happy to be given as a Christmas gift.

Flowers

I love Flowers, they really do make me happy. It doesn’t matter if they are daisies picked by the children or a beautiful bouquet bought for me by my Hubby. On the occasions when I arrive home to flowers I love it. Imagine how that would feel on a monthly bases for a year, with the gift of subscription flowers. Appleyard flowers have a stunning range of bouquets that can be delivered to your door. The subscriptions can be from 3 months to ongoing, with costs from as little as £22 per month, which for one of the Appleyard Flower bouquets each month I think is great value.

Beauty

I love a makeup bag, I think you can never have too many of them. This gorgeous one from Oli Olsen is just gorgeous. It has got plenty of space, and will be perfect for having in my hand bag each day, with it’s wipeable fabric means it will last for ages. Who wouldn’t want a gorgeous make up bag for Christmas?

Stocking fillers are a must have, Curaprox toothbrush and toothpaste, amazingly sharpe Rubis twisters, a Twist and Spritz refillable perfume tube that’s great for just popping in your hand bag filled with your favourite perfume. Not forgetting Olverum bath oil, which is perfect for relaxing after all of the festivities.

I love to have pretty nails, so having nail varnishes from Cienna Rose and a fabulous nail art kit from Sensationail are a must for me. These little gifts are wonderful stocking fillers.

Each year on my Christmas list I pop on a bottle of perfume, I love to have a few different ones on my dressing table so I can use something different depending on my mood. I love this Seksy entice perfume, it has a fresh fruity smell that is perfect for everyday.

Every lady loves a bath bomb, so a hamper full of them is just perfect for any lady. My 5 year loves to have a bath bomb in her bath so no doubt a Bomb Cosmetics hamper from find a gift will be shared with her. Packed with bath bomb, soaps and even a fabulously smelling candle. The hamper really is large, I would love to see it waiting for me under the tree on Christmas morning.

Sweet Treats

Yummy chocolate is a must have gift for any lady, these cute little chocolate squares from Oli Olsen make a great little stocking filler.

I do love a nice glass or two of Prosecco, Popaball produce a large range of different flavoured balls that you add to your glass and then they flavour your drink and they pop in your mouth. I have tried a few different flavours, but I’m looking forward to trying the Lychee ones they have recently launched. Popaball also have some designed for gin. Yummy!

A little treat

Candles are just about always burning in our house, in the family room, the living room and on occasion our bedroom. So being gifted a candle will always makes me happy. Me and Mats love candle is lovely and this one actually arrives wrapped and smells amazing when lit.

I love heading to the beach for the day, enjoying the sun and the sea. However I really hate sand. It gets everywhere, all over my towel and in places I didn’t know would be possible get sand. However, Tesalate have designed a towel that is sand repelling. It basically means that the sand will not stick to it, it just falls off, which is also perfect for when you are packing up for the day.

The towel folds up really small into it’s own little bag. So you can pop it into your beach bag with the knowledge that it is not going to add extra sand to you bag. Tesalate have a fabulous collection of styles, I really loved To Tuscany style. The towel has a more waffle feel to it rather than the standard fluffy beach towel, but if it keeps the sand away then it’s a winner for me.

The little things

With the new year not so far away, it’s the start of new things and that often means a healthy eating plan. This is cute little flamingo lunch box on my list means I will have be able to plan out my lunches and not pop to the shop on the way to the studio.

I am always trying to ensure that I drink more water, Stigg have sent me this gorgeous blush coloured water bottle. It keeps cold for 24 hours and hot for 12 hours. I haven’t tried it hot yet, however it really does keep things cold. It also looks fabulous when I take it from my hand bag. It really has helped me to up my water intake.

We have been trying to keep away from plastic straws, so these reusable ones from Klean Kanteen are perfect for the cocktails and the kids drinks. Plus I love this travel cup, so I can take it along on the school run. Wonderful stocking fillers that are practical and brilliant Christmas gifts.

It’s no surprise that I love a handbag, who doesn’t right. I have taken to using a back pack on occasion when out as a family, it really does free up your hands for the children. My Mia Tui bag is gorgeous, I love it’s mustard colour, and the hidden zip on the back so I can pop my purse and phone in there and not worry about someone getting them while it’s on my back. My Jess backpack is the perfect size as well, it’s not big enough to look like a school bag, or so small it should belong to my 5 year old. As with all Mia Tui bags they are vegan friendly and made to a really high quality.

Whatever you get your lucky lady for Christmas I’m sure she will love it, don’t forget that how your wrap your presents is also really important. So why not add them into a beautiful Christmas sack from Hand Made Christmas, you could even get them personalised, for added brownie points.

I hope you have got some inspiration from my gift guide for finding the perfect gift for the lady in your life and you have the most magical Christmas.

Happy Christmas!

3 Parts of Your Body That Need The Most Attention

There are lots of parts of your body that you need to look after. You need to make sure that you exercise so that your muscles stay strong and you don’t put on weight. You need to make sure that you don’t strain your eyes to protect your eyesight. However, these are the three parts of your body that need the most attention.

3 parts of your body that needs attention

Skin

You need to take good care of your skin. Poor quality skin can start to dry out, crack and become painful. Your skin stops all kinds of bacteria and infections from entering the body, and if you do not take care of it, then it will not be able to do its job. However, you also want to take care of your skin to ensure that it looks and feels as lovely as possible. This means that you need to wash your skin often and apply moisturiser to it as well. This will keep it hydrated and in good condition. When it comes to the skin on your face, you are going to need to spend a little more time with it than the rest of your body. You need to wash it twice per day. This will ensure it keeps in good condition. If you are wearing makeup, then you are going to want to make sure that you wash this off. You might also need to use toner, and you should always apply moisturiser to ensure the skin does not dry out.

Teeth

You need to look after your teeth. Not doing so can be painful and expensive. You only get a single set of adult teeth, so if you ruin them, you are not going to get a second set. This means that you need to spend time looking after your teeth. Each day you need to clean them twice. This means brushing your teeth in the morning when you wake up and then again before bed in the evening. After you have brushed your teeth, you need to make sure that you floss and use mouthwash. If you are concerned about how straight your teeth are, then you can contact a company like Invisalign, and they can help you to straighten your teeth. You should also do your best to avoid food and drink that will leave bacteria and plaque on your teeth. Also, you foods that are high in acidic content such as soft drinks can cause major damage to your teeth, so these need to be avoided as well.

Hair

Your hair likely takes a lot of time to manage and get looking amazing. You need to wash, dry and then style it. However, you need to make sure that it is kept healthy at the same time. You need to avoid over washing your hair and make sure that using hair tools such as a hairdryer and straightener is not drying out your hair. If they are, then you need to make sure that you are using conditioner and hair moisturiser. You should also make sure that when brushing you start at the bottom and work your way upwards. This will be the least amount of strain on your roots and means that you are less likely to pull your hair out.

 

What to get the lady who has everything for Christmas?

Us ladies often get to the stage in life where we want something lovely for Christmas, that we would love as a gift but not always something that we need. There is no denying that I have expensive taste, I always have done. I have this skill for picking the most expensive item, want it and not really need it so they are normally left in the shop as the family comes first.

What To Get The Lady Who Has Everything For Christmas

So this year I thought I would put together a gift guide of items that the lady in your life would love to see under the Christmas tree. Something that she will want a special treat.

Beauty gifts

Every lady loves a spa day, so why not add some Ragdale Hall spa vouchers. A perfect gift to help your lady unwind after all of Christmas preparation.

Luxury face cream and moisturisers by Skin Doctors are going on my list, Instant Eyelift, Skin Resurfacing cream, Beelift and Instant Facelift are on my wish list, they have fabulous reviews and any of the range would be loved.

Relaxing bath products are always a nice like luxury bath salts from Dead Sea or gorgeous bath oils from Olverum. The most amazing smelling bath oil to help you have a wonderfully relaxing bath.

Food and Drink gifts

My gift list always has a nice bottle of champagne added to it, so what about some lovely champagne flutes? Or what about this years craze of Gin, and especially Gin baubles from Find Me a Gift, you could add them to the Christmas tree as little treats throughout December. With Gin being so popular at the moment why not get a Gin & Tonic Infusions set, they give you all the ingredients to make your very own flavoured gins, available from Sous Chef.

Every girl wants some chocolates wrapped up under the tree, Guylian chocolates are one of my favourite as they contain praline, which is my go to chocolate… yummy. This year they are 15% bigger and so very delicious. Sous Chef also sent me this beautiful Panettone the most amazing sweet Italian bread that is very popular in our house at Christmas. We often sit down with a nice cup of tea and enjoy a slice of this fruity sweet bread.

I always love a personalised gift, so what about a jar of prosecco flavoured bon bon’s from Gift Pup. They have so many lovely gifts to choose from. I can’t wait to get started on mine.

Subscription Box gifts

Have you thought about a a floral subscription box? I love having flowers in our house, they always make me smile. Flowers just seem to bring happiness on even the gloomiest day. Beard and Daisies offer a range of different postal flowers, your Christmas gift would be a surprise delivery for months after Christmas.

The Pink Parcel is also a fabulous monthly subscription box, it is designed for us ladies. The Pink Parcel is delivered monthly in time for your time of the month, packed with all the products you need plus a box of little treats to help you feel better. Each month your ‘for you’ box is full of different items so you never get the same thing. Mine contained chocolates, a face mask, a couple of different beauty products.

Whenever I am at home, I have a a candle burning just about all of the time. The lovely team at Sandwick Bay Candles are launching a subscription candle box, which for me is perfect. If they smell anything like this gorgeous festive cinnamon and orange then I can’t wait to get my hands on the first months. Who wouldn’t love this gift?

Just gorgeous gifts

You cannot go wrong with beautiful stationery. What about a gorgeous personalised pen, beautiful note book and some stress therapy colouring crayons from The Pen Company. For me stationery is a must at any time of the year, not just at Christmas.

Of course no Christmas is complete with a gorgeous piece of jewellery. I love it, each year getting something beautiful to wear throughout the year. Rock ‘n’ Rose have a fabulous range of fashion items, you will find the perfect gift for any lady in your life.

Unicorns are so popular right now with both adults and children, that it seems silly not to add a cute little personalised mug and cuddly unicorn from Gift Pup. They will look lovely on my desk, to add that little bit of cuteness to my day.

Fitness gifts

I have always wanted a pair of retro roller skates, I used to skate as a teen. Why not bring back a childhood memory with a gift to remind her of her childhood. Roller skates are going on my gift list this year, as I am also reliving my Sylvanian Families obsession through my daughter this Christmas.

Or how about a lovely personalised t-shirt? You could have one made just for using in the gym or out running. How about ‘I run to eat cake’ or ‘This girl can’ you could put anything you wanted on to the top. Why not think of something that’s really personal to the lady in your life. Printsome offer a fabulous range of personalised t-shirts.

Of course with all of the yummy gifts at Christmas, most of us then start the new year wanting to get a bit fitter and what better way to help than buying a gorgeous Yogabellies yoga mat.

Something a bit cheeky

Why not treat your lady to a little gift that will spice things up in the bedroom? Why not try out the satisfyer pro penguin it’s a fabulous little toy for you both to enjoy.
