Oh how I love Christmas! I'm already in full swing buying presents and decorations for my tree, which will be going up BEFORE December 1st! But with so many amazing products out there at the moment I keep adding to my own Christmas list as I go. So I thought now would be the ideal time to share it with you to prompt some gift inspiration and maybe some to jot down on your own list!
Books for Christmas!
Christmas just wouldn't be Christmas without a pile of new books to read! I've had both Monsters (£7.99 - Amazon here) and Ready Player One (£6.29 - Amazon here) on my to-buy list for some time now so I'd love to find them both under the tree this year to speed read through over the holiday period. But the book I have my eyes on the most is the stunning new illustrated version of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (£16.95 - Amazon here), which includes over 20 illustrations by the talented Anna Bond of Rifle Paper Co. This really would be a treasured book in my collection if I were to receive it!
Laura Mercier In The Glow Trio
£25.00 - John Lewis here or House of Fraser
There's nothing like receiving a beautiful beauty gift set on Christmas morning then proceeding to try out all the product as you get ready for the day. I always like to opt for a good value beauty gift set and Laura Mercier seem to do that each year. This lovely trio of products include a Matte Radiance Baked Powder, Bonne Mine Stick Face Colour and Caviar Rose Gold Eye Colour that I've wanted to try so badly. Although only deluxe samples the three products contain enough product to really try them out and keep you glowing all winter long.
Another must-have for Christmas is a new scent to wear on Christmas day and over winter. Much like previous Christmas' I will be asking for my favourite ever fragrance, Guerlain Insolence (on offer £29.99 - Boots here) as it's just my signature scent that smells of beautiful sparkling violets. I also have to include a perfume that I planned to put on my Christmas list but then went and accidentally bought it for myself! As you can see that scent is Burberry Body Tender... which can you believe is only £12.95 for 35ml right now on Fragrance Direct here - a total steal! I just couldn't resist it for that price and as I've had it before I already know what a lovely fragrance it is.
Lush Happy Christmas Selection Box
£24.95 - Lush here or in-store
Lush is another favourite of mine at Christmas especially the gift set from there, big or small, they are always well received. However this year I sadly don't have a bath in my house making a gift set containing bath bombs a bit of a waste. But after looking through all of this years gifts I've found the ideal one for me containing zero bath products! This lovely set contains - Green Fun, The Comforter Shower Cream, Bubblegum Lip Scrub, Rock Star Soap and Refresher Shower Jelly. I really would love to receive this gift set!
Cath Kidston Christmas Billie Mug
£6.50 - Cath Kidston here or CK stores and concessions
In the last two years I've become slightly obsessed with mugs and have decided I definitely need more festive mugs in my life. This Cath Kidston Christmas mug is perfectly cute and very affordable!
Orelia Mixed Star Necklace
Orelia is one of my favourite affordable jewellery brands and contains some many lovely unique dainy pieces. I love wearing new jewellery on Christmas Day and this little mixed star necklace would be perfect with a festive top but also to wear any time to make an outfit that bit more special. Both ASOS and the Orelia site contain some stunning affordable gifts, with the Orelia offering a fab 20% off code at the moment.
Jurassic World Jersey Top
£7.00 - Primark in-store
Lastly on my list is quite a few clothing items from Primark, including this fab Jurassic World top. I absolutely love Primark at Christmas especially for new pyjamas, Christmas jumpers and branded tops such as the one above. This year I'm hoping for a new pair of pyjamas to relax in come Boxing Day and quite a few branded Disney items!
Do you have any idea what to ask for Christmas this year?
