This is a gift guide where there is sure to be a lil somethin’ for everyone…
Homeware, candles, books… this is my kinda gift guide! Now we all know I love beauty products as much as the next blogger, but these gifts are all my other favourite things. If someone bought me a candle or a marble chopping board for Christmas, I definitely wouldn’t be complaining! Keep reading to find out my top lifestyle picks this year!
First up, one of my favourite picks this year is anything from the brand Chelsea Candle. I came across Chelsea Candle at the bloggers festival in LDN and fell in love with everything they had to offer. Every single candle smelt incredible and so strong. I came away with a mini cranberry candle in my goodie bag and even that filled my house with the sweetest scent! I have now added two larger candles to my collection and I am obsessed with them both. The first one is the Cinnamon Buns candle which has the most insane smell ever, I am addicted. If you love sweet, Christmassy scents then you will love this one. The other one I have is the Autumn Leaves candle and it’s more of a sophisticated, fresh & woody scent that I also love. I’ve had both burning on rotation and my house has been left smelling gorge. The candles come in glass jars and have really simple but elegant packaging, I love how beaut they look on my shelves.
Another small brand that I recommend supporting this Christmas is BearHugs. BearHugs is another brand that I came across at the bloggers fest, and I absolutely love what they do. They offer a range of gift boxes, designed to deliver comfort when the sender can’t be there personally. They have everything from small gift boxes to large hampers, and you can even create your own perfectly tailored one to suit your loved ones tastes. The brand is dedicated to spreading as much love as possible which I just think is so lovely. Not only that, but for every 50 gift boxes sold, one is sent to a seriously ill child or their siblings through the charity Post Pals. I really recommend checking out what they do as it’s definitely a brand to support.
If you or a loved one are a homeware lover, I have some beautiful gift ideas for you all this year. Amara have a lovely section of Christmas gifts, and I picked a couple out to share with you guys. Amara have a lot of expensive items on their website, but these three picks are very affordable and as equally gorgeous. The first up is this Kate Spade Recipe Box, which is so so cute. It’s a box covered in a lemon print, and inside there is recipe cards, with dividers and text with a beautiful finished gold print. If you know a foodie who loves being in the kitchen then this one is a must buy! Next up is this set of mini candles by Laduree, which I actually think are both a really decent size. The packaging of the candles, and the box they come in, is absolutely beautiful and would make such a lovely gift for a fellow homeware lover. Not only that, but both the candles smell divine and fill the room with the strongest scent when they aren’t even lit! Last but not least, my final pick is these Hay Delicate Scissors, that are very simple, but with a gorge gold finish. These are the perfect accessory for a stationary lover as they add a beautiful touch to any desk!
