*although some items may have been gifted, opinions remain my own and I am not obligated to feature them.
It’s nearly Christmas! And it’s time for this year’s gift guide. This year I’ve done it a bit different and decided to do one big guide that everyone can be included in. Let’s get straight into it!
Who doesn’t love receiving a pyjama set for Christmas!? I came across the brand Nightire and fell in love. It was founded by a lady named Nina, and the pyjamas are all made from 100% bamboo, and are amazing quality.
Something a bit different
A different kind of present I came across is personalised wooden items from The Sugar Shed. They print your own photos onto hardwood and do so many different designs – from key rings to coat hooks!
Onto something again very different from what I would normally feature. These paintings by Karishma Gupta (London Life Drawing Girl) are incredible. She paints and draws architecture and cityscapes, which you can request your favourite city, home, or special building, so they work great as gifts. She has also drawn the Disney castle which is particularly great for kids.
Something for your furry friends
One for our furry friends now, and what is more perfect this time of year than a luxury blanket for both cats and dogs? These blankets from Lords & Labradors look so cosy and soft, I know my kittens would adore them!
A stocking filler idea – edible straws! I found these edible straws by the brand Exstrawordinary over in the US, who have just launched their pumpkin spiced flavoured straws! “The Exstrawordinary Straw is the latest plastic straw alternative to hit the market after the numerous straw bans, made with only two ingredients, durum wheat and water, a straw that lasts for over an hour without getting soggy”.
Do you know someone who loves camping and the outdoors? If so, you definitely should check out this post! I also recently came across the website FIELDCANDY who do all kinds of fun camping things. How cute are these watermelon themed things?
For the males
Now something for the man in your life – beard oil! The brand ThatchFace is a beard oil and male grooming brand founded by Ben Cleaver. They are working with a small male cancer charity call Orchid (site: https://orchid-cancer.org.uk/) to raise awareness of male cancers, and with every sale they donate 10% of profits, which I think is just amazing.
For the little ones
Now a couple of things to get the little ones in your life. First off is the beautiful organic and fair trade nursery and bedding brand Lily & Mortimer. They do some gorgeous little bedding sets and hooded blankets.
Another beautiful baby item I came across are head accessories such as these ‘totknots’ from Tot Knots of Brighton. They are all handmade and a super soft wool / cotton mix, and are line with 100% cotton. I think these prints are just beautiful and the little ones look super cute in them!
Finally onto a beauty item, I was very kindly sent a body butter from the brand Lavera and I loved it so much I had to include them in my guide. Lavera is a certified natural and organic skincare and cosmetics brand who are cruelty free, do not test on animals and many products are certified vegan. This year they have a range of gift available, which would be perfect for beauty lovers!
And there you have it – this year’s Christmas gift guide for all!
Until next time.
