Father’s Day is literally round the corner so if you haven’t already, now is probably the time to grab some gifts for the Dad, Granddad or Father figure in your life! We’ve never really put a huge emphasis on Father’s Day in our family but I always make sure I get my Dad a few gifts, to show him that I love him and appreciate everything he’s done for me over the years. If gifts aren’t your thing, maybe you can just make sure the Father figure in your life knows how much you care in some other way. Anyway, here are the gifts I’ll be giving my Dad this Sunday for Father’s Day and some suggestions if you’re stuck for ideas yourself!
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!

Now, y’all know I’m probably not the best advocate for Christmas. Not a huge fan, it has to be said. But… You know what I am a huge fan of? Candles. As a 20 something basic female and your average blogger, candles do not go amiss with me. And not just for blog photo purposes – I do actually, you know, light them. Sometimes. Today I’m teaming up with United Candles to review two beautiful Christmassy candles. Like when will someone invent something that lets you smell things through a computer because I actually feel guilty that I get to smell these candles and you don’t. Ah well, c’est la vie!
It’s that time of year again and although I may not be the biggest Christmas enthusiast in the world, there’s one thing I do love and that’s buying gifts for loved ones. Parting with your well earned money can be difficult but I just love searching for the perfect gift for someone – something a bit different and something a bit more personal than your average ‘smellies and sock’s. I came across Impossible to Buy For – a gift site with a whole range of gifts for him or her and a whole range of price options too. I’ve put together a gift guide for the ladies of unique gifts from Impossible to Buy For!
Oh I absolutely love this book! The idea of the 5 Year Memory Diary is for you to document events, big or small, that have happened on that particular day and it allows you to look back over the last 5 years with ease and not only reminisce but see how far you’ve come in 5 short years! I think it would make a really nice gift, especially for friends who do a lot of stuff together anyway | Buy!
Perfect for: Book lovers or writers! Continue reading
