Christmas is a big event in my house. Each year I think I am too old to make a Christmas List, however recently I’ve understood how much easier a list makes it for those wanting to buy you a present. I thought I would share with you what’s on my list this year in hope you may gain some inspiration for your own list or for some presents for others. I tend to try and keep prices low-ish as I feel embarrassed asking for too much! The more expensive items were sent to my parents or else my mum panics and buys rubbish (nobody actually wants those boob shaped stress balls). Without further ado, here is my Christmas List 2018…
Jo Malone Perfume – Last Christmas my parents got me the Jo Malone Earl Grey and Cucumber scent. I love it so much that I’m scared to use it in case it runs out, so I have put another one on my list so that I can use up my old bottle! The fragrance comes in two sizes, 30ml for £47 or 100ml for £94.
Blushers – This little gift set comes with 6 blushers and bronzers and is a steal at £19.50. I’m a big fan of Benefit and enjoy changing up my make-up with different shades of blushers or bronzers so this is the perfect gift for me. Fingers crossed mum chooses this one off my list!
Glass – I am very much influence by how something looks, therefore if my water is in a pretty glass I’m more likely to drink it – it’s silly, I know. I love these alphabet glasses from M&S for only £6 each. The only problem is I never know whether to get an E or an L!
Make-up Organiser – I love my make-up station and the way I display my make-up, however this station also doubles up as my desk and therefore I need it to be as compact as possible. I have added a make-up organiser to my list in order to try to gain some more space on my desk. This particular one from Wayfair is currently on offer for £27.99.
Pack of Face Masks – I may only be 24 but I feel as if I can already see myself ageing (although that could be more down to having had an incredibly stressful year!). Recently, I have been making more of an effort to take care of my skin and these face masks are my favourite little treat. If you shop around some brands do gift sets.
Neal’s Yard Remedies Complete Wellness –I spotted this book whilst in TKMaxx the other day and nearly brought it, however my partner was giving me the look that told me if I made any purchases that day he’d be a very grumpy person for the rest of the day. So instead I googled it and sent it to my nan telling her if she needed any inspiration for christmas presents for me then I would love this book. It’s a gorgeous hardback full of information about wellbeing all for £14.66. I had a peak inside the book in TKMaxx and its contents was varied, with information regarding food intolerances to information about IBS. I’m very hopeful that this book will be under my tree on Christmas Day!
Jewellery – I wear the same jewellery everyday. A ring that was bought for me for my 21st and a pair of earrings that my boyfriend bought me a couple of birthdays ago (See my Christmas Gift Guide for Her). I would love to wear some more jewellery and so when I came across this brand, Hurley Burley, I thought I would put it on my list and see what anyone got me. I particularly like the stackable rings which can be found here and the sun dial necklace which can be found here.
Lush Gift Set – I love anything from Lush and would be happy to receive any of their products for Christmas. I often ask for a Lush gift set from my brother as it gives him something easy to get me but still lets him make a choice and so it remains a little bit of a surprise for me! After having had a look at their website I love the look of the Stardust set, I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this is the one my brother opts for.
Cookbook – I love my cooking and so I have asked people for cookbooks. Generally as long as the recipes are vegetarian I can easily convert them into a gluten free meal.
Gloves- Over the years I’ve had many pairs of faux leather/ leather gloves bought for me, however I do not like the idea of having leather on my hands and nor do I find them very warm. I suffer from bad circulation and my hands and feet are always freezing! This Cashmere pair from John Lewis look beautifully soft and warm. I adore this bold coral colour, however they do come in a selection of 16 different colours. They’re a little expensive at £35 but I would happily pay that if it meant my hands were kept warm.
Foundation – Recently I have been really unhappy with all of my foundations, they all seem to turn orange when I put them on. I decided to purchase The Ordinary’s Coverage Foundation in the colour 1.0 NS and absolutely love it! For only £6 I will definitely be making a repeat purchase. Therefore The Ordinary is on my Christmas List as I would love to experiment with some of their other products and their serum foundation.
Let me know what’s on your Christmas List this year! 🙂
