Christmas Gift Guide 2016: For Her




When it comes to gifts for her I have great selection to share with you this year. All items that are included are things that I love and are gifts that I would choose myself. 

*For Readers
The twelve days of Christmas by William Morris is a stunning book filled with hand-picked patterns from the V&A's collections. Featuring art work by William Morris and Charles Voysey, this is the perfect Christmas gift for any fan of art and design.


*The Mums


Mum Hacks by Tanith Carey offers everyday shortcuts to allow busy mums plenty of quality time with their children, partner and even themselves! This book is for anyone who is trying to spend less time tidying, cleaning and washing and more time enjoying every day. I can't wait to stuck into my own copy, I've had a quick flick through and it looks like a good read and a must for mum's. £9.99



*For those that like a drink

31 Dover offer a Pick and Mix selection where you can choose 3 bottles from a selection of mini's. I went for Luc Belaire Rosé Mini which is the size of a half bottle, the Chase Vodka which I enjoyed with cola and last of all the Chambord black raspberry liqueur which were both in 5cl.  RRP: Dependent on what mini's are chosen. 



If your favorite drink is prosecco than you will love La Marca Prosecco. La Marca Prosecco opens with aromas of fresh citrus, honey and white flowers, and is sold for an affordable RRP of £10. With sophisticated baby blue packaging, La Marca adds a stylish sparkle to every occasion. This refreshing fruity Prosecco is the first Prosecco to be launched by recognised high street brand E&J Gallo Winery. RRP:£10



*For keeping cosy
Buddy Bear designs sell a range of jewelry and clothing pieces this fox in socks sweatshirt comes in 3 color options: Black, dark heather and light heather. They believe in giving back to the environment, so  have pledged to donate 10% of every sale they make to Scotland's Trees for Life charity. These donations provide funds to allow the recreation of Scotlands ancient Caledonian forest. There jewellery packaging is made from 100% recycled and biodegradable materials and clothing garments are climate neutral and an earth positive. 
RRP: £29.99



*For Jewelry lovers
Sailbrace strive to create quality anchor bracelets with a modern, minimalistic look and design that goes along with any style. Formal and casual enough, they flow seamlessly into your everyday life but are still a small but mighty reminder of the moments you should never forget. This golden touch anchor bracelet is a classy look of 14K gold and I picked the black cord as i felt it would go with most of my outfits.

With DIWAH you can pick out one of their gorgeous already made pieces or can design unique, semi-precious fashion jewelry.

I'm a lover of candles especially Yankee candles and the Holiday party collection has such a great selection of scents. Below I have Macaroon Treats, Vanilla and Festive Cocktail. The small jars that I have below RRP £8.99 each.

Macaroon Treats is a classic Parisian macaron-sweet as can be and lighter than air, with notes of vanilla, almond and, of course, sugar.

Festive Cocktail is a tart concoction spiked with mountain berries and a sprig of fresh-snipped pine.

Vanilla is a  pure vanilla fragrance that is both sweet and subdued, sugared yet creamy, and always seductive


*The film fanatic 

Experience the joy of what life and love have to offer with this global box office hit Me Before You, starring Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin and based on the critically acclaimed, best selling novel by Jojo Moyes. I've read the book and so I've been wanting to see the film for awhile I think this will be a popular gift this Christmas.
