Guys, guys, GUYS… It’s August and I have my first Christmas post up. Me… the person that hates Christmas – has a Christmas post up. In August. I’m actually really surprised at myself because I’ve been thinking about Christmas more than is normal for me lately – maybe because I am just so sick of summer, I’m willing it to hurry up and leave so we can get back into Autumn and Winter, fluffy jumpers and socks and Christmas shopping again. Anyway! I’ve mentioned before that I adore buying gifts for people. The whole process of finding the perfect gift is so special and I put so much time and energy into gift buying. I’d love to start my Christmas shopping earlier this year as well, so here is a small gift guide; sponsored by Uncommon Goods, so you can find all these gorgeous products on their website!
Through the Woods Tealight Holder
My mum absolutely loves candles – the more candles in the house the better! And you can bet during the evening, she always has at least one candle lit. This is always amplified at Christmas and that’s not surprising, as Christmas is the perfect time for lots of pretty candles to compliment the tree and the fairy-lights. I absolutely adore this tealight holder – tealights are so easy and cheap to get hold of and you can usually buy them in huge packs so you don’t run out for a long time. This tealight holder is absolutely stunning and although it’s not officially “Christmassy”, I think it could look so gorgeous lit up on Christmas Eve. This would be a perfect present for my mum!
Indulgent Food Pillows
Christmas is definitely the time to snuggle up and embrace fluffy blankets and all the pillows. And nobody can have too many pillows on their bed can they? I bloody love these food pillows – the perfect gift for a food lover, especially one with a sweet tooth. They would brighten a room for sure and I love how quirky they are. I think these would be a great present for my best friend – she’s definitely a lover of anything sweet and we’ve shared mounts of chocolate and sweet treats between us before.
Men’s Herbal Warming Socks
My dad doesn’t really “do” Christmas. However I still always get him a gift or 2 because I couldn’t face getting gifts for everyone else and nothing for me. He’s pretty happy with small things and never asks for anything but it’s always nice to treat him even in a small way. Another thing about my dad is that he is always cold and I mean always! I think these Herbal Warming Socks would be a perfect gift for him – dad’s and their slippers can be pretty inseparable! I think these would make a sweet gift and a gift where the recipient knows you’re thinking about them and their needs. It’s also something that they will get a lot of use out of!
What I Love About You by Me Book
I know this is going to be super sappy and outwardly, I’m not romantic or sappy at all but when it comes to gifts for my boyfriend I can definitely get a bit sappy and wanting to buy him something really, really nice and personal. I love the sound of this book where you write things you love about the other person. Imagine buying this a month or so before Christmas and getting it all filled in so when they open it, there’s loads of things written in there? It would make your partner feel so loved and special and I adore the idea of this book. And at just £7.62, it’s not an expensive gift but will be worth much more in sentiment.
