It’s that time of year again, how does it come around so quick?! 2017 has been the fastest year yet!
With the festivities in full swing it’s easy to forget someone from the gift list, if you haven’t completed your buying yet, I have a great round up of some ideas.
I’ll start with some choc stocking fillers..
Who doesn’t have a bit of a sweet tooth this season? These make great stocking fillers for the little ‘uns and adults alike.
A bumper pack of chocolate Digestives in a fun Christmas themed red Postbox biscuit tin. Perfect for sharing around this Winter. Available at most supermarkets.
Godiva chocolates to sweeten any holiday celebrations. You can shop the Godiva range at www.sainsburys.co.uk
McVitie’s nibbles in White Chocolate, so moreish. Check out all the different flavours at www.mcvities.co
Lights, glorious lights…
I love a bit of cosy lighting.
These lovely string of cat fairy lights are perfect for cat lovers. Not only do they add a touch of quirky decor to any room but also give off a nice warm glow when in use. Battery operated so fully portable. You can find these on Find Me A Gift.
I also recommend this starry table/wall lamp, it is one of my favourites. I’ve even kept it aside for my cherubs bedroom. You can match it up with most interior styles, but if this particular one isn’t to your taste, check out the vast range of designs including party lights, available at Litecraft.
For the traveller..
If like me you love a bit of escapism, why not give the gift of wellness this year, with http://www.healthandfitnesstravel.com/yoga-holidays you can find the perfect break to kick start the New Year. I also have an exclusive 10% discount for my readers, for use across all of the healthy holidays worldwide. There is also the potential to receive added value benefits, which may include 1 additional free massage or personal training sessions and room upgrades (subject to availability). Quote HTTPR when booking. 😉
[Discount is only valid for bookings made by 31st January 2018, non-refundable, non-transferable and can not be used in conjunction with any other offers. ]
Another great gift to go hand in hand with the adventures is this Scratch Map Deluxe Edition. When you scratch the gold away, bright colours are revealed that look even more stunning against the new black backdrop. Pin the map to your wall or lay it across a desk, wherever you put this Scratch Map it’s bound to draw every eye in the room to it. Make sure to buy yours, available from Find Me A Gift.
For the writer..
For a present more stylish than a pair of Christmas socks and a musical tie, Cross have launched the iconic Cross X.
This retractable pen features a dynamic snap-open, snap-shut mechanism to keep the roller ball nib safe.
Available in red, blue, silver and black, the Cross X is a perfect companion with any suit, dress or handbag – making a statement on- the-go. Available here.
For the smart phone users..
Speck provides extremely protective (and stylish) cases for smartphones, tablets and MacBooks. I’ve been using mine for a while now and I’m not disappointed.

For the matchy matchy family..
