HAPPY FIRST OF DECEMBER!
How fast has that rolled around ahh! Every Christmas Eve my Grandparents give me, my sister and cousins our presents early and a sort of Christmas Eve package including new pyjamas, a selection of lush bath bombs and a ridiculous amount of chocolate to eat whilst watching a christmas movie. So when i think of a stocking or christmas present these are things i always start with. Anyway…If you’re anything like me by now you will probably be panic writing lists of gift ideas for your loved ones and panic buying on your lunch break. So i thought i would pass on some ideas of Stocking presents i’m buying and that i would love to receive.
First of all who doesn’t love a Lush gift!? This year they have truly outdone themselves and have such an amazing range of products available, obviously their sets are incredible but i love the idea of selecting one or two bits that you think your loved one would enjoy to tuck into their stocking. My top picks have got to be the Golden wonder bath bomb, The snowman bubbleroon, The magic of christmas bubble bar and the Luxury lush pud.
A great smaller business to support is Lou Taylor. Lou creates amazing statement Jewellery, prints and accessories. My first purchase has been this Iris Apfel brooch, I’m incredibly fond of it and it seems other people are too as whenever i have it on people stop me to compliment it and ask where they can pick it up from. I’m now desperately lusting over this Amy Winehouse Brooch and hope it’s in my stocking (hint hint).
I love a personal gift so a Photo frame (preferably also personal eg: this little bear here!) with a picture of a great memory in is a perfect gift. These are also great ideas for grandparents, parents and siblings.
This time of year brings so many mini beauty products and bauble sets like the Pixi glow tonic, Caudalie beauty elixir or the Too faced better than sex mascara that any beauty lover would happily receive. A hand cream is an essential this time of year and this Almond hand cream from L’Occitane is a beautiful one. I decided to grab a few in the smaller size to give to family.
Now onto more gifting ideas,
Kiehls Pollutant masque / Pumpkin Souffle candle / Fortune telling book / Boob Pot / L’occitane Hand Cream / Pink Berret / Grinch Underwear / Pineapple Bottle Stopper / Mini Hoop Earring / Vivienne Westwood brooch
