The Christmas Gift Guide

All The Gift Inspiration for the Women in Your Life

Whether you are stuck with gift ideas for your girl gang, mother hen, grandmother, sister, cousin, work colleague or niece (the list is endless) or simply looking for inspiration for yourself, I have put together a little gift guide for you of some of the things that *ahem* I love and some things that I truly think make the perfect gift. I have tried to keep it affordable, I know we are not all made of money and there are still so many beautiful, thoughtful and special gifts that do not require you to spend all the dollar.

I have also kept it fairly simple, sticking with beauty and fashion and then home, stationery and other bits and bobs purely because I know there are tons of gift guides out there (seriously, fellow bloggers, you are killing it!) and I do not want to overwhelm you, it’s Christmas after all! But regardless, I do hope you find this useful if you are hunting for the perfect gifts and I do hope that something has caught your eye. All these items are so lovely and would truly put a smile on someone’s face this year.

I have kept this aimed at the girls for now but if you would like to see one for the men in your life then please do let me know! This is my first ever gift guide (how have I never done one before?!) so just wanted to really test the waters but definitely give me a shout as I already have a list for my brother and dad so would be more than happy to share!

But without further ado, let’s get into the fun stuff yes?! Here it is, my 2017 Christmas gift guide! I do hope you enjoy!

The Christmas Gift Guide

Beauty And Fashion

As a beauty and fashion lover myself, I love giving people beauty and fashion related gifts. If you have got a makeup lover in your life, you cannot go wrong with gifting them some much-loved palettes and lipsticks and a fashion lover is never going to say no to a new jumper in their wardrobes.

Scent wise, the Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Glacé is a beautiful Winter scent with notes of Blackcurrant buds, Pear Sorbet and Vanilla. It’s a stunningly light making it the perfect gift and the packaging is truly a dream. The Ted Baker Sweet Treats Ella is a gorgeous floral scent with a beautiful bottle to match. Again, there are hints of vanilla, amber and citrus and it just is a beautifully feminine scent which most will love!

Lip kits are so incredibly popular and the fact they come with two products in usually lovely packaging makes them such a perfect gift and the L’Oreal x Cheryl Lip Kits are truly no exception! With three gorgeous shades to choose from all featuring a wonderful formula and sleek packaging, these make the perfect Christmas gift for any makeup (or Cheryl!) fan!

Bath gifts never go amiss at Christmas and those who want something fun, fresh and with a beautiful scent, the Bubble T Macaroon Bath Fizzers Summer Fruit Tea make a truly wonderful gift that any Summer sent fan will love popping them into their bath.

Watches also make such wonderful gifts, especially when they are as pretty as the ones from Olivia Burton! She makes truly beautiful designs with such intricate and gorgeous details. Well worth every penny of the price tag (in fact, I have owned mine for years!).

For me, anything from Charlotte Tilbury makes the perfect present, with her truly stunning, rose gold packaging and luxurious products that just everyone seems to love. I adore her lipsticks and Pillow Talk is truly the perfect all-rounder nude.

Personalised gifts truly add the thought into presents and Posh Totty has the most gorgeous Disc Necklace which you can personalise with someones initial. My mum bought me mine for my birthday a few years back and it is still my most loved jewellery in my collection. The 9ct gold version is simply delightful.

The Christmas Gift Guide

Home, Stationary ETC

Candles always truly make the perfect gift, whether they are for your friend who has just moved home, you mother who adores pretty scents or for your co-worker who always has one lit, you cannot go wrong with a candle. The Elizabeth Arden White Tea candle is simply delightful, such a gorgeous scent for the home with notes of White Tea extract, Sea Breeze Acord and a warm wood. It is truly wonderful.

If you have got a blogger friend or one in the family, the Blogosphere Magazine subscription is the perfect gift for them! Featuring interviews with your favourite bloggers plus the perfect means to find new ones and thought-provoking articles that gives every blogger inspiration, there is a very good reason this magazine is so blooming popular!

iPhones may have the snazziest cameras now but there is nothing more fun than an old fashion Polaroid picture! The Instax Mini 8 Camera is a perfect gift for those who want to fill their walls in polaroids just like Miss Taylor Swift (she loves a good polaroid!) but they just create the cutest collection of your memories and those ‘in the moment’ shots. It’s actually kind of ridiculous how much I adore mine!

For those who love a pretty home accessory, the Zoella Lifestyle Inspire sign makes the perfect gift for those who love to add a decorative item or two to their home. This looks so lovely sitting pretty on a desk or mantlepiece and makes the perfect dose of daily inspiration.


I hope this gift guide has helped you out! Have you nearly finished your Christmas shopping for this year?!
