It is hard to believe that we are back round to Christmas again. It has been a whirlwind of a year and I’m very excited to bring you my top suggestions for Christmas gifts. Still keeping in mind with the idea of Hygge and giving things that will bring joy, this Christmas is set to be a relaxing and joyful one. Here is hoping my suggestions nail your Christmas list, and you need not move from your bed to do the shopping. Just click away.
Gifts for women is the second installment with some well thought out gifts. I wanted to really share the type of things that I would love to receive or that I would buy for someone else.
You all know by now, I love a candle. Miniatures are great for days you want to use a candle but don’t have 2 plus hours to burn one. This trio from Floris are infused with the finest essential oils and fragrances, the set comes with the following scents, English Fern & Blackberry, Rose & Oud, Cinamon & Tangerine. They each sound so inviting and the fragrance they evoke is long lasting.
Now this, is pure luxury for your face when sleeping. Notice how I said face and not eyes? That’s because the mask covers your eye area and surrounding face in soft luxurious velvet. I never really realised how important this actually is when trying to get a good nights sleep. No light can enter. It acts light a light barrier and will allow you to drift off into a deep sleep. The detailed design in silk on the front of the mask, is just beautiful, this is a great gift of luxury as well as the gift of sleep. It works very well with the items from my next suggestion.
This is a lovely gift, as we all experience difficultly sleeping at one time or another. And I know from experience as well as hearing from friends, their own experiences with troubled sleep which makes this set by Feather & Down perfect. I particularly like the fragrance of the Pillow Spray. It’s not overly powerful with lavender, which is what you find with similar products. Instead, the scent is soft, really warming and relaxing, notes of chamomile and lavender, but not overpowering in any way. It is a delight to spritz on the pillow. As well as this dreamy pillow spray, the set includes a relaxing shower creme, eye mask and a sleep balm. I find this to be perfect for rubbing on your temples before you drift off.
Flock by Nature Eloise Merino Jumper in Grey & in Blush £179 (get 15% off using code LADYLOVES at checkout)
I’ve mentioned Flock By Nature quite a bit recently, the softness and luxury of their sustainable and ethical Merino knit jumpers are second to none. Flock products come with a lifetime gurantee, so if something was to go wrong with your garment (within reason) simply get in touch with Flock and they will look to repair said garment. This would make a great gift for mum, or one for yourself.
A touch of homeware I find is a great alternative gift, more often than not it’s useful and serves a purpose. I just adored this Badger Print Pillow By Ultster Weavers, on the back it says “Don’t Quit Your Day Dream” which I thought was so lovely and inspiring, it would make a great gift to bring joy to a friend or loved one. I’m also a fan of quirky things, this cat mug caught my eye, and since I drink a lot of tea and have friends and family that do too, sometimes a funny/ cute mug can be the add on extra your main present needs.
Women’s Hamper – Make It Yourself
The beauty of creating your own hamper, is that you set the budget and you choose the contents. It’s a very personal and thoughtful gift and one I find that brings a lot of joy. I really enjoy making them too, and to see how happy the recipient is when they open theirs is just so worth all the time and effort that goes into it. This years hamper is focussed on relaxing and pampering in style. With a bottle of bubbly and some Chambord to get things started, because who doesn’t love champagne??! Especially at Christmas! The Beauty Pro Face Mask Set £20 comes with individually packaged face masks, two bubbling and cleansing masks and the other two infused with collagen to rejuvenate the skin. There is also two eye patches to soothe tired eyes. To finish off, I have included a really nice skincare set from Lovegrove Essentials. Complete with Cleansing Balm infused with apricot oil and Shea butter to boost radiance, comes with a muslin cloth. The Floral Toning Mist relaxed and tones the face in a few simple sprays. Everything you need to give the gift of some relaxing ‘me time’.
