AD – This post contains gifted items and sponsored features
It’s that time of year again! Who’s excited? I bloody am. I love gift guide season and I’ve read SO MANY incredible gift guides already this year so far. It seems like the standard of them is constantly rising. I honestly wasn’t too sure whether I was going to do a gift guide this year but I knew I’d miss it too much if I didn’t! In my opinion, it’s all part of getting into that festive spirit when you’re a blogger!
I only have two gift guides going live this Christmas, one specifically for subscription boxes, which is live in a couple of days. But firstly, let’s take a look at this selection of gifts, for all budgets and tastes!
For the book lovers: Trigger Pocket Books – £5.99 each
These sweet little books would make PERFECT stocking fillers for both book lovers and those into positivity and well-being. So basically, they’re ideal for me! Oh and the best part? Proceeds from every book go towards The Shaw Mind Foundation, a charity that helps prevent suicide in the UK and US. Trigger are a company that believe in the power of reading and having a positive impact on people’s mental health.
Apart from the amazing work that this brand does, I absolutely love these little books. My boyfriend’s Mum has similar books in their hallway and I always find myself picking them up and reading something uplifting when I’m standing around waiting. Each book has a different focus; balance, resilience, wisdom and compassion. So you can take exactly what you need every day.
For the Hygge lovers: Onaie Sheepskin Slippers – £35
Is it just my family that buy each other slippers for like, every occasion? We seem to get through a LOT of slippers in my house (especially with a dog who’s known for chewing them!) so if that sounds like you and you or a loved one needs a pair of SUPER HIGH QUALITY slippers which will last you until next Christmas, Onaie are a great shout.
Each pair of slippers is unique and handmade in the Polish Highlands by a team of highly skilled craftspeople. Not only are they robust and will last all year round, they also contain unique hand-embroided patterns and artisan exposed stitching. A one of a kind gift for someone that loves their home comforts!
For the adventurous: Tinggly Bucketlist Experience Gifts – £189
I’m a huge lover of giving and receiving experience style gifts, rather than a physical item. If you’ve been reading this blog for long enough, you’ll know that I HATE clutter and sometimes would much rather make the memories instead. If you or someone you love is like that, the Tinggly Bucketlist Experience Gifts would be absolutely perfect!
The difference with Tinggly, is they only sell gift collections. Which gives the recipient the luxury of choosing the experience they want themselves – with absolutely no chance of disappointment. Every collection holds hundreds of experiences, from island hopping is Thailand, whale watching in Iceland, a Game of Thrones tour in Croatia and much more.
You can order a physical box which can be shipping anywhere in the world, so the recipient has something physical to open. Or send them an e-voucher, if you’re more environmentally conscious. There are over six hundred experiences in their Bucket List Collection. If it was up to me, I’d probably choose the private gondola ride in Venice!
For the sentimental Christmas lover: Funky Pigeon Photo Upload Snow Globe – £9.99
It isn’t Christmas without a gift from the pet is it? And I don’t think my gift guides would be complete without my dog’s face featured on something. I’ve used Funky Pigeon countless times over the years – for my own personal use and on my blog so I’m always delighted to feature them in my gift guides. They have a wider range of gifts than ever for 2019!
These cute snow globes would make excellent stocking fillers and they have a ton of photo options, including dog, cat, memorial, 1st Christmas, personalised named globes and more. Obviously I had to go with the dog one which I’ll be giving to my Mum and I know she’ll love it.
For the kid or kid at heart at Christmas: Funky Pigeon Personalised Sack – £14.99
Another gift from Funky Pigeon and it’s perfect for Christmas Eve for the kids in your family – OR for the kid at heart at Christmas! That’s their gorgeous high quality personalized cotton sacks. Again, they have few different design options but my favorite was this simple but effective initial sack.
For the crafty ones: Love Crafts Cross Stitch Kit – £4.50
I think Christmas and Winter is a great time to do crafts, make things and get creative. I used to do a lot of cross stitching and I really enjoyed it so these cute little cross stitch kits from Love Crafts would make excellent stocking fillers for the craft lover in your life! They’re so affordable and have a huge range of super cute, Christmassy patterns!
For the beauty lovers: Sosu by SJ Lashes – £5.95 each
Another perfect stocking filler option but this time for the beauty lovers in your life. Sosu by SJ Lashes are high-quality, handmade lashes that come in a variety of styles. The perfect finish to all your Christmas parties, gatherings and days out! You can also grab an applicator tool and eyelash glue for a full eyelash care kit for that special someone.
For the grateful: The Book of Good by Melanie Hooyenga – $9.99
This is the exact kind of gift I’d buy myself or someone else because I’m a huge believer in gratitude and how expressing gratitude daily can impact our lives and mental health. The Book of Good by Melanie Hooyenga (also available in a lovely nature cover too) is a perfect stocking filler idea!
Each book has a simple goal: to encourage you to find the good in every day, despite how difficult it might feel on those days where you feel like everything in going wrong. I can’t wait to start writing in my book and dedicating even more time to gratitude!
I hope this has given you a bit of inspiration this Christmas! Would you purchase any of these gifts for people in your life?
