Whilst Christmas is my favourite time of the year, it’s also the hardest when it comes to Christmas shopping. Trying to figure out what to buy everyone and within a budget can prove difficult, so I decided to put together this little Christmas gift guide to give you some ideas for little stocking fillers or gifts for those special girls in your life. I’ve teamed up with Prezzy Box (prezzybox.com) which is a website dedicated to finding you that perfect present for absolutely anyone, no matter how hard they are to buy for.
The first product is Cocktail Bath Melts* a box of 4 luxury bath melts whose flavours are influenced by some classic cocktails. These are by Wild Olive a company who are all about natural products, meaning that these bath melts are free from chemicals. Whether you are wanting something tropical or vibrant, this set caters for that with 4 different flavours:
1. Gin and Lime
2. Strawberry Dacquiri
3. Mango Mojito
4. Pina Colada
Now I’m bit of a cocktail connoisseur so when I came across these on the site I instantly developed an attachment to them. They come in a lovely little box and as soon as you open them you’re met by strong fragrances of every kind. I’m a lover of Lush bath products so it was nice to try something different for a change. These are petite little products that would be ideal for popping in the bath after a long, tiring day. These cost only £9.95 so if you have a specific budget for Secret Santa in the office or among your flatmates then these could be the ideal gift. The tropical ones (Mango Mojito and Pina Colada) were definitely my favourite, they were so fruity and smelt amazing.
The second product is the Bath Tea Bag Box*, which also costs only £9.95. Again, like the cocktail bath melts these are unique in their own way, and something I’ve never came across until now. These bleach free tea bags are filled with sea salts and essential oils to leave your bath lingering of herbal goodness. This box comes with 5 tea bags:
1. Mandarin, Bergamot & Orange Blossom Tea
2. Lime, Himalayan Cedar wood & Green Tea
3. Lemon, May Chang & Green Tea
4. Tuberose, Jasmine & Rosehip Tea
5. Lavender, Patchouli & White Tea
These are another product made by Wild Olive so come in a similar box to the cocktail bath melts. Each tea bag smells amazing, with a variety of options to choose from to suit your mood and taste. You can either pop the teabag in a warm bath, or open the bag allowing them to freely float around in there with you. The rose one was my personal favourite.
I think you’ve probably acknowledged the fact I do like cocktails, so another cocktail themed gift is this Pink Fizz Cocktail Scented Candle, priced at £9.95 (RRP £10.99). I thought this was really cute as the candle is in a cocktail shaped glass, smells like the cocktail itself, and again comes in a nice little box. It has a burn time of up to 10 hours, so if you know anyone who loves cocktails, candles and pretty home decor this could go perfectly in their home.
I rarely ever have a bath, I’m always the “quick shower” kind of girl but recently with all of life’s stresses I enjoy a little bath alongside a bath bomb to go in it, and any other thing to enhance the relaxing atmosphere. This leads me to the next cute gift idea: Floating Rose Bath Lights. If you’re the type who loves nothing more than a relaxing bath surrounded by candles, this could be the next new thing for you. When all you want is to sink straight into a warm bath and relax, sometimes the thought of finding the candles, and lighting them even proves somewhat of an effort, so why not save yourself some time and go for these water activated LED lights. These are £8.95 (RRP £9.99), and each pack comes with 3 rose lights that you can use over and over.
This next gift idea is quite possibly my favourite: Chocolate Topitoffs, don’t they look amazing! Particularly in the Winter, we all are prone to having a hot drink on a daily basis, if not more so why not add something to that hot drink to make it extra tasty? These are chocolate disks that you sit on top of your hot drink, allowing the heat to melt the chocolate into the drink. As you can see they’re not just plain milk chocolate, they’re decorated with little designs, whether swirls or stripes so look very pretty perched on top of your cup. These would be ideal for adding extra chocolatey goodness to your Hot Chocolate. These cost £5.95 with a pack containing 12 chocolate disks, so these would be perfect to fit into any chocolate lover’s stocking.
Finally is the Breakfast Face Masks, which would be great for a little pamper session and for anyone who needs some “me” time in the morning before a busy day ahead. If you struggle with getting up in the morning, this would be ideal for not only waking you up, but revitalising your skin for the day. This pack costs only £5.95 and includes 3 flavoured breakfast face masks:
I hope you’ve enjoyed my quick Christmas guide, and maybe you’ve found a last minute gift that you think would be suited perfectly for someone you know. Although I only included a selection of items from Prezzy Box and aimed this post at girls, there are hundreds of gifts to choose from so please do go on there and look further, there’s so much choice and the delivery is quick and efficient – just what you want with Christmas only 6 days away.
