All I Want For Christmas Is You



Hi guys, how are you all doing? Welcome to #BLOGMAS Day 5, if you haven't seen my previous #BLOGMAS article, I will leave a link at the end of the article as well as the whole #BLOGMAS collection. Today I will be doing a gift guide as this year I have found it difficult to come up with gift ideas for friends and family and is it just me, but throughout the year there are like a million things that you would like but when it comes to Christmas I don't have a clue what to ask for 😂. So hopefully this article will give you a few ideas on what to get others and to ask for yourself. I hope you enjoy reading!

Obviously, this is quite a standard thing to buy at Christmas, it's great gift to give as a lot of people love sweet things and you can get a some really nice chocolate boxes for only a few pounds. Just make sure that the person is not diabetic and if they are vegan, have a nut or soya allergy or cannot eat gluten, make sure you get a vegan/gluten free sweet treat. If you live in the UK, I feel like you can't wrong wrong with a Cadbury Milk Tray chocolate box, which is only £6.

Books are such nice presents to buy people. Buying a book for someone is quite tricky because you really need to think what sort of books they like and are they actually gonig to read the book that you are considering to get them. However, if you get them a book they really like, they will read it all the time, even after when they finish the book. One book that I personally love and can suit a lot of people's tastes is Chicken Soup For The Teenage Soul, which is a book that has tons of short stories each of which have a moral behind it. You can get it on Amazon for £10.99/US$12.37.

You can't go wrong with a good candle. I love how they transform a room and make your surroundings feel so cozy, especially during the winter. My favourite candles are from Yankee Candles as they have so many scents, they even have a range for Christmas. I have heard so many people from across the pond in the US and Canada are obsessed with Bath & Body Works candles, they should be great too, I personally haven't used anything from Bath & Body Works as we don't have it in the UK, but their stuff is supposed to be incredible.

People say that when it comes to gifts, it's the thought that counts, and I couldn't agree more. If you don't have a lot of money to spend on your friends and family, you can always give them the amazing gift of giving photos of fun memories with that person. You can print them off at home or you can print them off in a photo store if you want to print off images at a high quality. You can also put these images into a photo album. If you have a bigger budget you can give someone one of those printers that print images from your phone such as a HP Sprocket Photo Printer. On Amazon, they are currently £109.00 so they are a little pricey but they are such a great gift for anyone who has a flair for photography or want to print of memories.

Another affordable present to give someone, there are so many nail polish shades that you can get and it is something that is collectable too. You can get them in sets, with colours that compliment each other or, you can get them singly as a little extra present or as a stocking filler.

If you have a friend or family member that loves makeup, this is a must. A lot of people love to recieve makeup for Christmas from eyeshadow palettes to lip products, and makeup is something you can buy, even at small budgets. One brand that I really love is Tarte. Tarte Cosmetics are such a incredible brand because they are both vegan and cruelty-free whilst using natural ingredients in their products. Their makeup is so highly loved and used around the world and have really popular products such as their tartlette and tarteist palettes. When you visit the website for the first time, you get a chance to win either up to 15% off your first order of free delivery on your first order. Check out the link below if you want to check out the entire Tarte Cosmetics collection.

Jewelry can be a great gift for so many people from your mum to your friends, as jewelry can be suit so many people and their particular tastes. Also jewelry can be given by people with so many different budgets, you don't need to get something from Tiffany & Co (if you have the budget for that, then by all means go for that). You can even make jewelry as well to make the gift more personal and you can find so many tutorials on YouTube and Pinterest. Also the parts to make jewelry are often sold ridiculously cheaply on Amazon and Ebay.

This is definitely for that person in your life that is very organised...or needs to get their s*** together. 😂Stationery is great because everyone needs pens, sharpies, notebooks, planners etc. because they are aways needed to jot things down or even just to doodle. It's one of those gifts that people may not necessarily want to buy themselves, but love to recieve.

Yes, yes and yes! Lush products are absolutely perfect for those who love beauty products and bath-bombs. Lush also have the cutest stuff, especially for their Christmas collections.. It is such a lovely gift to give someone who needs to de-stress and chill out.
