It’s that time of the year again where all the gifts guides are out, every year I used to go into town to excitedly pick up the Boots Christmas brochure before making my list. In the more recent years, I have just gone through the online guides and my list has become considerably smaller. This year I have done away with the list completely and instead I am sharing some of my favourite picks from what I have seen whilst browsing x


Neom Organics Scent To Instantly De-Stress Real Luxury Intensive Skin Treatment candle looks incredible. The candle is 100% natural, made with 24 essential oils including lavender, jasmine and Brazilian rosewood. This would be perfect for lighting to have a relaxing soak in the bath. After it has been lit for 30 minutes and you are ready to get out of the bath, blow the candle out and wait 2 minutes before pouring the wax over your skin for an intensive skin treatment. £36 x


I love Sanctuary products, I think they smell fabulous and instantly relax me. The Sanctuary Relax, Breathe and #letgo gift set is £45, it is in the 3 for 2 offer in Boots but I also predict that this could be one of the star gifts during the run up to Christmas. I bought a similar set last year for £22 instead of the original price of £45. This set includes;

Luxury Signature Votive Candles x 3

Sumptuously Soft Headband

Sumptuously Soft Inflatable Bath Pillow

Foaming Creamy Bath Soak 250ml

Gentle Polish Body Scrub 200ml

Cleansing Burst Body Wash 250ml

Luxurious Body Butter 300ml


Joules Ready For The Weekend Bag. I have never used Joules toiletries before but I love this bag. This is £45 and is in the 3 for 2 offer in Boots and Joules. A similar set was a Boots star gift last year, being reduced from £45 to £22. The set includes;

Joules designed floral print shoulder bag, measuring approx 36 x 36 x 11cm
Very Handy Hand Wash 250ml
Fantastic Fingers Hand Cream 125ml
Brilliant Bubbles Foaming Bath Soak 250ml
Smooth the Day Away Body Lotion 125ml
Feel Good Floral Body Wash 200ml
Lovely Scrubbly Body Scrub 125ml

Liz earle

I was first introduced into the world of Liz Earle by D’s mum and I love it. The Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish™ Hot Cloth Cleanser Pink Pepper & Mint Limited Edition sounds great for a winter facial. The mint will refresh whilst the pink pepper warms the skin. A 150ml pump and 2 muslin cloths is £20.75 x


Chanel Coco Mademoiselle perfume needs very little introduction. A unique blend of intense freshness and lightness, 50ml of eau de toilette spray is approximately £55 x

bloom and wild

I love having fresh flowers in the house and receiving them never fails to make me smile. Bloom & Wild send flowers that fit perfectly packaged through your letter box to arrange. They also send hand tied flowers that are already arranged ready for you to pop in a vase. You can order one off bouquets or regular subscriptions. A three month subscription of a monthly seasonal letterbox bouquet is £55. You can also subscribe to their newsletter and get a code for 10% off your order x

Monty Bojangles towering dusted truffle gift

Monty Bojangles Towering Dusted Truffle Gift, £9. I haven’t tasted the nutty or scotch truffles but I bought D the choccy scoffy truffles for his birthday and they are just heavenly. They are deliciously rich and you get a lot more in the box than I expected. I just wish we lived near to the Monty Bojangles Truffle Bar to try all of Montys creations x


Benefit How To Look The Best At Everything Make Up Kit includes the POREfessional PRO balm to minimise the appearance of pores, hello flawless oxygen wow brightening makeup, 2 boi-ing industrial-strength concealers and hello flawless! custom powder cover-up. I just wish it had a mini mascara included in the kit as well. The kit costs £25.50, if you purchase 3 selected benefit products online at Boots, you receive a free gift at the moment x


Benefit Sweet BADitude is a full size and mini size of the BADgal mascara. I love this mascara, it lengthens and thickens my lashes without any clumps. It is £18.50 for the set or £17.50 for the full size alone. I think the mini is ideal for keeping in your handbag x

Celtic & co

Celtic & Co Aqualamb Sheepskin Boots, available in regular and calf height. The regular ones are £145, they are handmade in Cornwall and treated to make them water resistant. Perfect for keeping feet warm and dry in the English Autumn/Winter x


John Rocha Purple Floral Pyjama Set from Debenhams look comfy and stylish for £28 x

John greed

I adore this Thomas Sabo Special Addition Garnet Heart Pendant Bracelet from John Greed. At £313 it certainly isn’t just a stocking filler but I think it’s beautiful without being over the top x

Links of london

These Diamond Essentials Sterling Silver & White Pave Star Stud Earrings from Links Of London are stunning. They feature 32 round cut white diamonds intricately set within sterling silver studs, £195. You can get 10% off when subscribing to their emails x

This diamond necklace from Blue Nile features a petite heart which is pavé-set with tiny diamonds for the ultimate gift of romance. Made in 14k white gold, this is an affordable gift for your loved one at only £243


This Travel Document Holder from Kipling is £28 and comes in 4 colours. It looks great for keeping all your important bits and bobs secure. The wallet consists of a zipped pocket for cash, multiple card holder dividers and slip pockets to organise cards, including one with a transparent window, pen loop and is a water repellent crinkle nylon that’s easy to clean x


My phone NEEDS this case from Joules, available for iPhone 4,5 and 6, £12.95 x


The Floating Hearts Tablet Case is adorable from Accessorize, available in 8 and 10 inch. The 8 inch costs £18. Students with an NUS card can get 10% discount for a limited time only on full price products, no dates are stated x

I hope you have liked my picks, only 58 sleeps until Christmas now xxx

  1. I love this. It’s the online equivalent of circling the catalogue. Definitely going to have to do this… a bit nearer the time once our wedding is out of the way! #FindYourTribe

  2. I love so many of the things that you have chosen. The candle that you pour on yourself intrigues me, I love the Joules weeken bag and the John Rocha PJ’s. Thanks for the inspiration, even though I want most of it for myself and not to give! Thanks for linking to #findtribe

  3. I really need to get my act together and start getting ready for christmas. I feel a very panicked last few weeks before coming on! Thanks for a few ideas to get me going though! #justanotherlinky

  4. Some lovely things here!! I really would like the Liz Earle clense and polish but we will see if hubby gets the hint! #justanotherlinky x

  5. I love the Sanctuary gift sets – they’re great value and smell great! 🙂 Great idea to put together a list too – my mother-in-law was asking me what I wanted for xmas the other day and all I could come up with was ‘socks’. I must be getting old!

  6. What a fantastic selection of gifts giving me. Some ideas for my wife this year thanks. For hosting #christmaslinky

  7. I had no idea that Liz Earle had a new scented cleanse and polish *adds to Amazon wishlist immediately*
    Lovely list!! I can’t wait to start buying presents!!!

  8. You’ve picked out some absolute crackers for your list. I’ll have one of everything please.

    I love the Sanctuary products, the smell of everything is divine and that gift set looks gorgeous.

    I spend a lot of time looking online at the Liz Earle products but I’ve never taken the plunge and bought anything. I have really oily skin and I really struggle finding products that fit well with my skin. I’d be interested to know more about what you like about the Liz Earle products. The packaging on the limited edition cleanser.

    I didn’t realise that Joules do other stuff. We’ve purchased a few bits of clothing for Rowan from there – in the sales I may add! I’m actually looking at new iPhone cases at the moment as I’ve got a new one arriving tomorrow (excited!) and the Joules one looks really nice and pretty reasonably priced.

    Thanks for linking up with my new #TheWishlistLinky. It’d be lovely if you could join in next month,

    Laura x

    • Liz Earle is amazing and well worth the money. The cleanse and polish is especially nice, cheaper than going to a salon. I would definitely recommend trying them, the natural ingredients may help with your skin type x

  9. You cannot go wrong with PJs at Christmas, everyone loves them. What a great gift guide, also love the idea of sending flowers. Something a little different #ChristmasLinky

  10. Candles, perfume and pyjamas are some bits I want this year! I don’t ever ask for anything but this time i’m going for it 🙂 x

  11. These are lovely gift ideas, i would definitely be happy to receive these on Christmas especially perfume and PJs are always great!
