For me, Christmas truly is the most wonderful time of the year 🎄 but despite the festive magic that usually dominates the December air, things can still feel a little stressful – the presents to find, the decorations to put up, the food to buy and prepare… There’s lots to think about and lots of money to be spent!
I love shopping and get enormous satisfaction from the smile on people’s faces after they receive a present that they like. You might have the perfect gift in mind for that special someone – a pair of booties they’ve been eyeing up, some cute PJs, their favourite perfume – but sometimes there’ll be that one relative or friend who are really tricky to buy for. This is where gift guides can come in handy 😏
I love finding inspiration from the gift guides and lists other bloggers have made – so I thought I’d try creating my own with the aim of making someone’s present-buying life just a tiny bit easier.
I’ve Googled, and listed, and bought, and browsed for the past week or so, and have come up with a few little present ideas for the homebodies, the bakers, the travellers, the tech lovers, the makeup moguls, the coffee aficionados and the fitness fanatics among us.
Rather than separate into the stereotypical mum-dad-boyfriend-bestie-sibling-etc. lists, I thought it would be most useful to categorise by interest – we’re all unique, and just because you’re a woman doesn’t mean you’re going to love a beauty-related pressie!
This gift guide was created with women in mind but some might still work for guys (or at least inspire an idea!). I’m working on a ‘For Him’ list that will be posted sometime next week.
I really hope you enjoy and *fingers crossed* get some sort of inspiring brainwave if you’re struggling to find a gift for the special gals in your life.
