I started collating this post back in August, I know no one wants to hear the “C” word in summer but I wanted to get organised this year as with a little one I wanted to spread the cost and spend more time with my family. Our little boy will be able to enjoy Christmas a little better this year but we still don’ t know what to buy for him.
For the Kids
Firstly I’m going to start off with a gorgeous piggy money box, which you can personalize with a name and personal message from Personally Presented. I can’t wait for Freddie to start filling this up with pennies he gets given.
So Free Chocolate selection
We don’t have any allergies in our family if you do know anyone with an intolerance these would be a perfect alternative as stocking fillers or presents. Prices start from £1.99 to £4.95.
GEL-A-PEEL ACCESSORY KIT
Your girls will love this, making their own accessory jewellery. Sadly we don’t have any girls in the family but one of my best friends has a little girl so I am gifting this for her birthday in December.
There are four of these to collect in total, each creature has 45+ unique sounds. They are available to purchase from Smyths Toys at £39.99
I have seen these and have always wanted one to try out and now I have and can’t wait to use it and make some Ice cream. It’s priced at £29.99 which I feel is a good value and can be purchased from The present Finder.
Itty’s Bitty’s from Hallmark
We love Itty Bittys in our home. They are a super cute way to give a gift, of someone’s favourite character, and don’t cost a fortune. These little ones are ideal as a stocking fillers too and adorable!
Any beer lovers out there? How about a home brewing kit? I’m giving this my dad for Christmas to make.
Specialist Brewing Equipment – £35
Milk Stout – £22
12 x Swing Top bottles – £30
Gillette Razor Mach 3
A bit of a boring present but if your partners likes to look trim then this is a perfect little stocking filler for them.
My husband snores but thinks he doesn’t then I’m the same and he once recorded me just to prove it so I am hoping these rings do the trick and help us both. It is priced at £29.99 which I feel is a little expensive but if it does the trick it may be worth it for a better nights sleep.
Simoniz Car Cleaning Kit
If the man in your life is as obsessed with keeping their car clean as my husband then this handy car cleaning kit will be perfect for them.
Cufflinks from Dobell
My husband has to wear a suit to work everyday so likes to have a selection of accessories for it including cufflinks so these are a perfect gift for any man wearing a suit to work. Starting price is £9.99
We have our own seats at home on the sofas, I don’t know why but it works so it’s fine. This is ideal for my husband from our little boy as whenever I sit in his seat I get asked to move. It is priced at £14.99 and can be personalized. You can purchase this from The gift Experience.
For all the wine lovers out there, how about a bottle of wine?
If you’re after a sober Christmas, or just fancy a soft drink with a difference, the non–alcoholic wine from Botonique is one to try for sure.
If wine is not on her gift list then flowers are surely to put a smile on her face this Christmas with this bouquet below
I love jewellery so when I received this I immediately fell in love with it. It is engraved with my son’s name “Freddie” on it and is perfect for any female as a gift with any wording on. It is priced at £34.99 and can be purchased from The gift experience here
The beautiful vibrant colours in this Christmas bouquet is perfect for any women in your life. Priced at £49.99 I think it makes it more pretty to give to a loved one.
What about a Wax warmer Subscription from Wax & Melt with melts delivered through your door every month? Sounds like a perfect gift to me. You pick your own melts every month. I love nothing more than to lit a candle when I get home from work as it makes the cold evenings more cosy.
The Chameleon Bottle will be launching on Kickstarter in November. What a good invention, a colour changing bottle that tells you when your water is getting warm and needs changing. The starting price for these is £22, which I feel is good value seeing as it is reusable and helps prevent waste.
Olverum Bath Oil
We don’t have a bath but if we did I would buy this and use this as I’ve heard so many good things about this. Priced at £32.00 for 125 ml or £58.00 for 250 ml .
