Christmas gift guide 2017 | quirky ideas for the lifestyle and beauty lover
December is the month of frosty mornings, Coca Cola Christmas advert and the joy of getting the family together. I enjoy every single aspect of winter season, especially Christmas. The festive vibes, the Christmas songs and the desire for snow are few of the things I adore in December. Christmas gift guide 2017
I feel like a child, when I shop my christmas tree and first bauble for the year. The smell of pine uplifts my mood so a real tree is essential. Buying gifts and wrapping them in pretty paper is another thing I love doing in December. So few days ago, after a long deliberation, I managed to jot down all the gift ideas I have for my family and friends. Therefore, I thought this will be the perfect time for me to share some recommendations and help you treat your love once this Christmas.
Christmas Gift Guide 2017
I am a huge lover of everything beauty and homeware related. I like to follow the trends and feel inspired by them. To be honest, I am not a social person. Therefore most days I would stay at home and be happy in my own company. So this is where the passion for homeware comes along. On the other side, I have always been obsessed with beauty and makeup. I love colours and experimenting with them. So my gift guide for Christmas 2017 will be very girly/lifestyle orientated. Christmas gift guide 2017
FOR THE BOOK AND STATIONERY LOVER
I am not a big fan of reading, but following my blogging desire I pay visit to a local stationery stores every now and then. Being a homeware fiend, I love books and stationery that inspire me and can be a great addition to my house interior. My go-to places to shop stationery is TKMaxx and Kikki K. Last Christmas I purchased this grey and copper book by Kikki K. It became my “diary” and guide to positive thoughts. The book is very inspiring and helped me find my individuality and see life from a different perspective. This year Kikki K has launched two new books called DO Book and SHARE Book. They make the perfect gift for any blogger, book lover or inspiration seeker. Christmas gift guide 2017
FOR THE BEAUTY AND MAKEUP LOVER
December holidays is the perfect time to show how special your family and friends are to you. For someone who loves makeup, Christmas time is a game changer. There are wide variety of limited edition beauty gift sets and makeup palettes uniquely packaged for Christmas. My go-to store is definitely SpaceNK. Bobbi Brown, Hourglass and By Terry are some of the high end brands that launch limited edition collections and will fulfil anyone’s makeup desire. Burberry and Victoria Beckham for Estée Lauder have amazing quality makeup range as well as luxurious packaging. They also make the perfect gift for a makeup lover.Christmas Gift Guide| list of quirky and thoughtful ideas perfect for the lifestyle and beauty loverClick To Tweet
A luxurious body cream is another alternative if you want to treat someone who is into beauty and skincare. Usually I would never go for £50 body lotion, but this time of the year is all about making yourself or people closer to you feel special. Acqua Di Parma Body Creams contain perfume in them which makes the scent last all day long. They are made for the sophisticated and stylish woman.
FOR THE CANDLE LOVER
Candles are one of the home accessories which makes you feel like a queen in your castle every time you burn them. Candle prices vary and you can find very affordable or high end ones. However for this time of the year Jo Malone or Diptique candles are the best gifts you can give to a candle lover. They look so sophisticated and smell incredible. Both, Jo Malone and Diptique candles, are high quality candles, burn evenly and give my entire house lovely scent which I adore. They come in beautiful packaging and make the perfect Christmas gift.
FOR THE JEWELLERY LOVER
I highly recommend two particular brands ideal for this time of the year; Pandora and LittleSmith. I appreciate thoughtful gifts and adding a personal touch to a jewellery gives sentimental feel. The well known Pandora creates charms which can be collected or added to your bracelets. They bring back memories and evoke happy feelings.
LittleSmith necklaces are dainty and can be personalised. In only 20 minutes, you can choose the colour, the charms and what to be engraved on them. They come in cute metal box wrapped in brown card which looks very crafty. They are super affordable and great quality.
