My Novelty, Fun & Useful Christmas Gift Guide
It’s Christmas in literally 15 days! I can’t believe how fast this year has gone, can you? It felt like a few months ago I was writing my 2015 Christmas Gift Guide, when in actual fact a whole 12 months have gone by… Where does the time go? So much has changed for me in that year, but that’s being saved for my New Years blog post that I’m planning, like I do every year. This post is all about my choices for presents! I’ve selected only 16 women’s items and 10 men’s items as I’m keeping this gift guide smaller this year. I know everyone is probably sick of them and I didn’t want to waste a huge amount of time putting an ultimate gift guide together, like I did last year, so I’m keeping it short and sweet!
You may see that this gift guide of mine is entirely different to previous ones and currently craving wish lists, purely because I didn’t see any sense in putting in expensive items of clothing, or designer bags and shoes, as those are rarely ever purchased as gifts for anyone and more for ourselves. I’ve chosen actual gifts and the majority of them are on sale right now and are under £30! Just like that Paperchase Pink Christmas Tree (above), I think these are actual gifts that people would like to get on Christmas day! Some are novelty, some are useful, some are pretty, and some are unique, but they would definitely be ideal stocking fillers or extra little gifts to fill up your quota. Happy shopping!
Women’s Gift Guide
For the ladies, I put together a combination of fun gifts like a light up cactus, a decorative unicorn, a cute glitter bee iPhone case and a giraffe pom pom keyring, but I mixed in some useful things like some make-up, a pair of gloves and socks, a drinking mug, some slippers, and a jewellery stand. I know I would personally be happy to get any of these on Christmas day as they are all to my taste! I might have actually ordered the light up cactus already as I love anything with a cacti print!
I’ve also included this really pretty red playsuit which would be great for any New Years Eve parties, and this ALLSAINTS leather jacket. I couldn’t help it! You all know how I feel about ALLSAINTS! It’s a little on the expensive side, but beautiful. On the other hand, who doesn’t love jewellery at Christmas? These two necklaces and the pretty bracelet are incredibly elegant. I would love them! There’s a little silver feather clip for your hair there too, in case you want hair accessories. I cannot stop staring at the jacket though! Isn’t it just amazing?
Men’s Gift Guide
I didn’t leave you guys out either! Since I have a boyish mentality too as I love Marvel, sci-fi things, games etc. I put together a list of things that I would find cool. This includes a Marvel calendar, a Star Wars mug that changes with heat, a beanie hat and a bow tie (for the fashionable guys), a watch that has a moving plane on it as the second hand, a mini drone, a crystal t-rex dinosaur puzzle in 3D, a fun take on the usual Where’s Wally book, but it’s Where’s Wookiee? So cool! There’s a heat changing Marvel mug too, and of course finally some Dove products for guys who like grooming.
– So that about concludes my Christmas Gift Guide for 2016 as it’s small and compact, only showcasing things I would count as actual gifts. What’s on your wish list? Let me know!
