Christmas Gift Guide 2016*

It’s only that bloody time of year, well technically, it’s not quite but who’s going to want a gift guide a week before Christmas? No one, that’s who!

I’ve compiled a list of gift ideas I think you might love for your nearest and dearest. Or yourself. Treat yo’self, it’s Christmas!!

Gifts For Beauty Lovers:

The Joan Collins Paparazzi Compact Duo* is the must-have for any beauty lover this Christmas. It features an all in one lipstick, powder and mirror, so there’s no more hunting around the handbag for loads of difference products! It looks absolutely stunning and there’s a wide range of lipstick shades to choose from. (£34)

The OSMO* blinding shine set is a brilliant idea for Insta-ready hair. It leaves hair feeling so soft and looking ridiculously shiny; even on my blonde hair!  Find your local stockist here. (approx £20)

Treat one of your blogger friends to a beautiful Lylia Rose** cosmetics bag. I love this little bag and it’s probably something my mum would love as well! Use my discount code ANCLOSINGWINTER for 10% off. (£5.99 before discount)

The Lifestyle Blogger has a wide range of homewares and gifts. These silver hammered heart-shaped tea light holders are so adorable and would look fantastic as blog props 😀 (£9.99)

Gifts For Children:

I used to love getting books for Christmas every year, and this one is beautiful. It’s called Farming Unicorns and features a girl called Lizzie who moves to Unicorn Farm with her brother, Richard, and her parents. You can buy it here from Amazon. (£1.99 – download for Kindle)

These cute presents are both from*. The fingerprinting set includes inks, stamps and crayons to let their imaginations run wild. There are two different sets to choose from; standard or fairy-tale. (£8.99)

The giant colouring map is great for keeping children (and adults) entertained for hours! Pop it on the floor or stick it on the wall. (£9.99)Christmas gift guide colouring map.jpg

Gifts For Christmas Lovers:

Lets face it, we all have that one friend who’s put their tree up already and, has not only bought, but wrapped their presents as well. It’s definitely not me. I’m not that friend.

But, for the Christmas-loving friend, these candles from the United Candles* Tuscany Range are the ones! You can buy them from their Amazon site.

The Santa’s Key candle holds a small key which lights Santa’s way to your Christmas tree so he can leave presents underneath it. A great gift for anyone with children (£16.99)

The limited edition Christmas Cabin scented candle makes me think of pine cones,  outdoors and snow. Mountains of snow. Great for lighting on cold evenings and snuggling under blankets watching TV. (£12.99)

Gifts For Green-Fingers:

Grace and Bloom have the Succulent and Cactus Club which would be great for someone who loves plants but doesn’t have a garden. Or large amounts of indoor space! (From £10.99 per month)

The National Wildflower Centre* have a lovely idea for garden lovers called 12 for 12 for 12. You get 12 different packets of flowers seeds (one for each moth of the year), complete with a gift bag and tag. It’s such a ridiculously great bargain as flower seeds can be so expensive, especially if you have a large garden! Not only that, but the flowers have been carefully selected to attract butterflies and bees. So you’re helping the environment and the animals. To order yours, just go to (£12 + p&p)

Gifts For Jewellery Lovers:

As you know, last week I went to the Scarlett Jewellery event. Not only did they have some stunning pieces which were featured in my recent blog post, but they also had some very Christmassy designs; including this beautiful snowflake charm. (from £39)

And if you fancy something completely different from your usual gold, silver or rose gold, then Tiny Tigers Teething* has you covered. These gorgeous necklaces are made with silicone beads, perfect for absent-minded chewers, like me. They also make children’s sizes and can do bespoke designs and colours. (They were originally designed to be teething necklaces, but due to the high cost of testing, these are now gorgeous fashion accessories and probably shouldn’t be given to children under 3.) (From £14)

Gifts For Yourself:

Because it’s important to treat yourself as well! 2017 is the year I want to get in shape. And, although I say that every year, this time I’ll have the Ultimate Health* e-book to help me. Sharon Morrow, a female personal trainer, breaks everything down in an easy-to-read way, there are loads of meal ideas (I hate it when you get 2 ideas, great I can have chicken or fish! Thanks) and how to change your mindset towards food and exercise. You can download your own copy . (£6.99)
