Christmas Gift Ideas!

It's that time of year when buying Christmas presents can seem very daunting. Luckily, us bloggers and gurus on YouTube can help you here! There are so many videos out there helping you and here's a few of my favourites!

So with everyone doing a gift guide, I thought I'd do my very own for the first time. I've got a list for her, him and kids. All of which can be for either your mum, sister, girlfriend, daughter, brother, dad, son anyone! I'll provide links to all of the products mentioned and any discounts going.


(I'll do in 3 different posts, too much text to digest!)


FOR HER.
Sanctuary Spa productshttp://www.boots.com/en/Sanctuary/ and http://www.thesanctuary.co.uk/ I went to the spa in Covent Garden in early September with my cousin and loved everything about it. These products are absolutely incredible! A lovely luxurious product for a fraction of the price. Boots offer a small range of the Sanctuary Spa products so check out your local store if you don't want to pay postage and packaging! I have a few of these products and they work SO well! They leave your skin smelling, looking and feeling great. A definite for the spa lover or someone who wants to treat themselves a bit. Not too expensive, just depends what you want. You can get travel sized products all the way to gifts sets.


Body Shophttp://www.thebodyshop.co.uk/index_cybmon.htm - offering 50% off everything for 24 hours (online). These products are so lovely. They offer everything from hair treatments to make up. Their gift sets are perfect for Christmas and they always have offers! 


Fragranceshttp://www.theperfumeshop.com/ - Perfume and fragrance are the perfect gift for Christmas, especially for a girlfriend. If you know what she usually wears or needs her current perfume topping up then this is a great gift. You can check out the top 10 fragrances for both men and women on the Perfume Shop website. Another great product to buy to go along with a fragrance is a Travalo http://www.travalo.com/index.html. You just unscrew your perfume bottle, put the travalo on the top and just squirt away. It's so handy to keep in your bag or purse and you don't have to worry about your favourite perfume bottle breaking! 


Chocolatehttp://www.hotelchocolat.co.uk/ - http://www.thorntons.co.uk/default.asp?&cookie_test=1 - http://www.lindt.com/uk/swf/eng/ - Chocolate is always a good gift whether it's going with another gift or just on its own. You can get so many gift sets, products and seasonal products which is lovely. Us females love our chocolate so you can't go wrong!


Day/evening/spa days: These can be so sentimental but not expensive. Argos offer a range of days and experiences out from F1 to spa days. As I said before, I've been to the Sanctuary Spa in Covent Garden and that was actually a joint Christmas and Birthday present last year (my birthday is on the 6th January) from my Aunty so my cousin and I went in early September and it was incredible. You can buy different packages depending on what you want. Experiences and days out are always a good one and most are for 2 or more people. 




Next post is gifts FOR HIM!
