It’s CHRISTMASSSS! Honestly, I’m writing this way too early and I am SO READY for Christmas already after the absolute disaster we’ve had this year so far. From October onwards, I’ve been in a proper seasonal mood and really trying to embrace Autumn, Halloween and making a start on my Christmas shopping early to get into the Christmas spirit. It’s so important to hold on to those little joys – especially this year!

I’m not going to waffle too long in this intro because I have a mega gift guide for you today. In fact, I’ve had to split my Christmas gift guide into two parts this year because I have so many incredible brands and products to feature that it would have been FAR too long if I kept it at one! So without further ado, let’s get into part one of my gift guide!

For the book lover: One Family Christmas by Bella Osbourne £5.99

I can’t have a gift guide without books. Books of all types are always featured heavily in my Christmases. More often than not, I receive books. And I always gift them to other people too. One Family Christmas by Bella Osbourne is the perfect, heart-warming, stocking filler to gift the book lover in your life for them to curl up with on Christmas night!

For the tea fanatic: Christmas Time For Tea Gift Tin£24.95

And what goes well with a new book? A good cup of tea! The English Cream Tea Company are THE PLACE TO GO for any tea lovers. And the Christmas Time for Tea set is the epitome of Christmas scents and flavours from; Nutcracker Tea to Gingerbread Tea to Mulled Cider Tea. The perfect way to end Christmas day!

For the eco-warrior: Organic Cotton Produce Bag£4.95 // Bamboo Make Up Removal Rounds£7.99 // Eco Scrubber£6.20 // Organic Chamomile Eye and Face Cream£10.95

These next 4 things are all from the same brand so I grouped them together and I am in love with these products already. Earth Bits are a sustainable, plastic-free and eco-friendly brand that sell a range of products from produce bags to face creams, all being incredibly high-quality. The brand do their bit to reduce waste and source locally.

All these products would make amazing stocking fillers or perhaps additions to a hamper – if you wanted to make up a hamper yourself! The cotton produce bag and the eco scrubbers are both convenience products which you know the recipient can use again and again. And for a little self care treat, the face cream and make up remover rounds are great options for that!

For the crystal lover: Crystals for Confidence – £9.50

For the woo-heads among us (like me) this is the one for you! Manifest and Magic, run by the amazing Lauren, is the place to go for your crystal needs. She sells beautiful crystal sets for everything from confidence to positivity to creativity to a broken heart – the list is endless! Your crystals will arrive in a beautiful little bag and come with a little card to explain the properties of each one.

For the watch lover: Luxury Apple Watch Strapsfrom £29.00

The Watch Strap sell luxury Apple Watch straps and for anyone in your life that owns an Apple Watch, who likes to mix up their look and experiment with different colours and fabrics, this is a really great option! Plus, they’re MEGA affordable for the luxury quality you’re getting.

In both men’s and women’s, from genuine leather, stainless steel, woven, nylon and silicone, there’s a design for everyone. They can allow you to change up your watch look for any occasion. My personal favourite is the light pink silicone sport band, which would be ideal for my workouts!

For the whole family: ASDA Photo Personalized Jigsaw from £10.00

So you’ve eaten your dinner, you’ve watched the Queens Christmas speech and you’re wondering how to fill the rest of the afternoon. The ASDA personalized photo jigsaw will come in very handy! I love personalized gifts, so of course I chose one with my dog on it for us to all enjoy on Christmas! The quality is great and you can also choose the amount of pieces you want too.

For the candle lover: Bakewell Tart Soy Wax Melts£8.00 // The Fairytale Soy Wax Candle £15

There’s a candle lover in every family. In ours, there’s two. My Mum and I absolutely love a candle. We can’t get enough of them. So I was incredibly excited to feature Sevine Candle Co in this gift guide. These products smell… out of this world. Like, if you didn’t know the Bakewell Tart melts weren’t edible, I guarantee you’d try eating them. They smell THAT good and that realistic.

I adore The Fairytale Candle jar too. I’m not even too sure what it smells like but I know it’d be the perfect scent to have burning in a lovely, relaxing bubble bath on Christmas evening! Sevine Candle Co say, “Fragrances have the power to transport your mind anywhere, especially to the past, and Sevine Candle Co. love to create candles with familiar scents, sparking stories of days gone by, knowing that you will love them as much as we do”, which just makes my heart fizz.

For the travel lover: German Cuckoo Clock£280

This is definitely something worth splashing out on, if you have a travel lover in your life. Particularly one who loves Germany! This beautiful  traditional 1 day cuckoo clock is handcrafted in the Black Forest of Germany. It’s in the traditional design of an A-frame chalet house that has a moving figurine chopping wood in addition to the cuckoo’s call.

A 1 day running time means that you must wind the clock once per day, but if you prefer more convenience you can also find 8 day running time that needs winding only once per week, or quartz clocks that are battery-operated. There’s such a wide range of cuckoo clocks to choose from at the Original Cuckoo Clock Shop that you’ll find the perfect gift for the German-lovers on your holiday list. 

You can grab a 10% discount on your Christmas purchase at Just enter the code “Christmas” in the Promotional code field in the shopping cart and you can also find Cuckoo Clocks over on Facebook.

  8. You have some great options here. I am IN LOVE with the idea of the personalized jigsaw puzzle. Not only does it have a fun, personal touch (not just your run of the mill design that everyone else has), but it’s also an activity that we can enjoy at home at a time when many people are trying to avoid feeling bored. Win/win!

  19. I have so many Christmas gift guides in the making right now that I am ridiculously excited!

I’ve been in denial that Christmas is now next month and I’m normally done on my Christmas shopping and haven’t even started, so thanks for the great suggestions!
